Determine cost of produce easily using price computing retail scales approved by NTEP for selling. Farmers in particular should take notice of power capabilities if a power outlet is not readily available at your stand. We find most are looking for a battery powered option which is not supported by some produce scales. CAS manufactures VFD and LCD types since the VFD cannot operate on batteries but have a brighter display. This is preferred in delicatessens that can operate it continuously with an outlet because of the brighter and easier to read display. Adam Equipment's WBZ is the only price computing type that has washdown protection. Rice Lake's RS-130 includes an in-use cover that is usually an optional item on other scales which works as a splash guard.
While a CCi hanging scale might be suitable for some farmer's market, they do not allow you to weigh crates of fruits and vegetables. When you need a counter top or platform design for heavier loads or simply prefer this type of design, we have plenty of compact bench scales perfect for the farm stand.
Select from CCi's HS Series or Chatillon's Century hanging scales which also may be purchased with hanging weigh pan. The hook is included and is perfect for weighing bags or sacks of groceries.
