Re: There goes another DX order...

You can get scales on ANY rig with lifting capacity that has hydraulics. Most shipping companies that take cargo for barges especially up and down the west coast here, the first thing the forklift operator does, is weigh the pallet or equal you are dropping off. So they should be within w plus minus 5% at most what a given container weighs, assuming the wt of the container has ALL goods inside weights added up. Containers them selve have a tare on the should be fairly easy to be within the % I mentioned earlier.
