The Trimble Loadrite L3180 SmartScale is now available as an option on Doosan wheel loaders.

According to Trimble, the Loadrite L3180 SmartScale uses weighing intelligence and solid state sensors for more accurate, precise and faster loading. It also connects machines and devices for the collection and syncing of data via built-in Wi-Fi to the InsightHQ reporting portal.

InsightHQ consolidates live, operational information from Trimble Loadrite devices on loaders, excavators and conveyors across a site to provide near real-time productivity and performance reports for extraction, processing and loadout operations.

The onboard scale is now available as an option from Doosan dealers across North America.

“Our Doosan wheel loader customers will benefit greatly from the new option, helping them do their work more precisely to improve their overall productivity,” says Bill Zak, wheel loader product specialist at Doosan Infracore North America. “This type of technology demonstrates our ongoing commitment to provide our Doosan dealers and customers with state-of-the-art equipment options.”

According to Trimble, the Loadrite L3180 offers more precise weighing in a range of conditions, including adjusting for rough terrain, operator technique and machine movement using new weighing intelligence. The system also features digital CAN-bus sensors for noise immunity and ground slope compensation as standard.

Additionally, the L3180 now offers in-cab key performance indicators (KPIs) such as tons per hour, tons and truck count to allow operators to monitor performance and achieve daily targets. When using Trimble’s cloud-based InsightHQ quarry reporting portal, personnel can gain access to site production and operator performance KPIs on desktop or mobile devices.
