Mr. Moon installed the first CAT Scale in 1977 in South Holland, Illinois. In 1988, there were 28 CAT Scales in existence. At that time the company began to rapidly expand. Now there are over 1,950 CAT brand scales across the United States and Canada with more opening all the time. Locations can be found at www.catscale.com.
With the stringent weight regulations and potential fines associated with violating such regulations, CAT Scale Company provides a much-needed service to the trucking public. All CAT Scale weights are covered by an unconditional guarantee. If a driver receives an overweight fine after weighing legal on a CAT brand scale, CAT Scale Company will either pay the fine or appear in court with the driver as an expert witness in order to get the fine dismissed. In either scenario, the driver is covered by the guarantee and does not have to pay the fine, as long as they weighed on a CAT brand scale prior to receiving the citation.
To make weighing even faster and easier for the driver, CAT Scale offer the Weigh My Truck app. Drivers can weigh and pay from their mobile device without leaving the cab. This saves valuable time and also provides drivers with instant viewing of weights on their device and an emailed locked PDF copy of the scale ticket. Fleets can set up accounts that allow driver management and back end data feeds. More can be found at www.weighmytruck.com.
