Walkers Builders Merchants has saved around £35,000 by switching to using a FLSC Forklift Scale System from Avery Weigh-Tronix and avoiding overfilling. Walkers sells bulk bags of a range of aggregates. In order to fill a one tonne bulk bag the merchant uses a JCB Teletruck with Avery FLSC Forklift scales and a Bagezee attachment. This means there is now no need to worry about the loss of profit from over-filling, and no need to worry about fines from Trading Standards Weights and Measures for under-filling.

First, the scales are set to tare with the bucket empty. The Teletruck then collects the aggregates from a pile in the yard and the weight is taken by the FLSC Forklift scales. Once the bucket is full, any excess is dropped out through the bottom trap doors.
