Buyers Guide - Price Computing Scales

HOW TO FIND THE BEST PRICE COMPUTING SCALE from 1800 SCALES.com

This page is designed to provide you with a resource for buying produce scales that calculate price per pound that are used at the farmers market and other locations. In the old days most sellers would use hanging scales at the farmers market. They were easy to use and reliable. But as technology has advanced, so to have scales. If you visit most vendors today and you will see one or two digital scales with a display facing the seller and a display facing the buyer. Digital scales are pretty common today at just about every location. There are many different brands and models of produce weighing scales available. Many times a vendor can survey a handful of their friends who are also selling to determine what they think of a particular scale.

We offer many of the top brands of scales in the country. Names like Ohaus, Brecknell, CAS, Rice Lake, and Detecto. Remember, be sure to buy certified scales that are NTEP approved legal for trade Class III. When you do finally make the decision to purchase a scale and sell at the market each week, what capacity will you need? The standard is 30 pounds. However, there are scales with six pound capacities and there are some with over 100 pound capacities. So if you have larger weight items that you want to sell by the pound, we can get you a scale to do that in most cases. Now if you're selling small strawberries or apples, you don't want to use the same scale to weigh heavy pumpkins or watermelons. It might make sense for you to choose a small capacity scale like a 15 pound model and a larger model, perhaps a 60 pound capacity. That way you are making more money per transaction depending on the scale you are using.
