    Just pull on a scale, tell em what you want to do. Tell em which platforms you want to scale, and make sure you scale each axle individually. Pull forward, walk back to the speaker and tell them which ones to do now. I'm guessing you need to do the tractor first, then each trailer one at a time, but I've never done doubles, just spread axles.

    I've been spoiled by easy access to yard scales. The few times I've asked the clerks how they weigh doubles, I get the 1000 yard stare into nothing.

    That 1.3 mb attachment is actually a pic of the buggy dock blocking me. Your computer or phone won't get AIDS if you click on it. For some reason it won't show up as a thumbnail
