Siltec WS-Series 500 pound scale offers a 15" x 15" weighing platform. Great low cost digital shipping scale. Cargo companies would buy two WS500L and straddle a crate across the platform and simple add the weight displayed on each indicator to get the total weight.
Other applications include home use weighing of people up to 500 pounds. The WS500L is great since the larger platform allows for large people to be able to put their feet on the platform verses typical doctor scales have a platform only 12" x 12" (compare the platform size of the WS500L to the PS500L here). Always in stock for immediate delivery. Review all the specifications and answers to all your questions here.
|Compare the difference in platform size between the PS500L (12" x 12.4" x 2.4") and the WS-Series 15" x 15" x 2.7" (h) x (w) x (d). For many people the WS Series is a better choice, since the platform is larger and allows them to stand on the scale more comfortably or place oversized carton on the platform. The WS500L construction is more heavy duty with the entire scale weighing 22 pounds verse the PS500L only weighs 11 pounds. For the difference in price between the PS500L verses the WS500L we always recommend the WS500L over the PS500L. Sure both units can weigh up to 500 lbs in 0.5 increments but the WS500L just does it better. Since the WS500L has a bigger platform it distributes the load better over the scale. Our analogy we be no different than a person pulling a camper with a 6 cylinder mini van verses another person pulling the same camper with a pickup truck with a large V-8 engine. We all know the mini-van won't last long if you plan on towing a camper back and forth across the country for the next several years. Read more here to help you decide what is best for you.

Hello Precision Weighing Balances,
Enjoyed talking with you the other day. So here is living proof that everything is bigger in Texas. Both pair of shoes are size 16EEEE and they carry a big man. I'm 6ft. 4.5 inches tall and now I know my exact weight. The scale works great and I am happy I went with your advice selecting the WS1000L with the 15" x 15" base to accommodate my large shoes. My neighbor, and good friend, came over last night and weighed in at 425 lbs.
Your advice also to go with the WS1000L over the WS500L is a smart choice since I never know if I encounter another Texan who is bigger than me and they might be over 500 pounds. Purchasing a scale that weighs more towards the middle of the scale's weighing capacity makes good sense. I won't disclose my weight but lets just say I've got him beat by a little bit. Looking forward to seeing my "Boats" on the web.
