LPRA Railroad Scales


Cardinal Scale’s LPRA low-profile railroad track scales features heavy-duty rugged steel weighbridges, stainless steel USA-made electronic or hydraulic load cells (hydraulic load cells are impervious to lightning and water damage), 20 different models available, up to 270-ton gross capacities, E-80 Cooper AREMA rating, and accuracy class IIIL legal for trade (NTEP and Measurement Canada). The UV-protected, anti-corrosion tan powder paint compliments any environment and all weighbridges are shot-blasted and power-washed clean of debris before painting for optimum quality. The low-profile design eliminates the expense and maintenance of a pit meaning construction costs are lower.
