CAT Scale App Lets You Weight Your Truck by ‘Phone’

April 21, 2013 By: Trucking News Staff Tags: Equipment, Technology

CAT Scale has developed an application for Android smartphones that allows drivers to weigh their truck without having to leave their cab. The new Weigh My Truck app allows drivers to weigh their truck, pay for the transaction via PayPal and get the weights displayed right on their smartphone.

In addition, the app emails a PDF copy scale ticket or weight information text file to up to five email addresses specified by the driver.  If a driver needs a hard copy scale ticket, they can still pick up a printed CAT Scale ticket at the fuel desk within an hour after weighing using the Weigh My Truck application.

The new application is currently being tested and will be available to the trucking public in June.  Drivers will be able to create an account online that will store basic truck information and email preferences as well as keep a record of past weigh transactions.

More information about the new Weigh My Truck app can be found online at  An iPhone version of the application is also under development.
