Have had them for a week installed. I have scaled at same place everyday since and weights have not matched up with the air scales (1000-1500 off). Recallibrated next load off. I am trying differant things to get them more accurate. It has been very cold this week maybe that has an effect. I am not giving up yet.

Have not tried those, but do have appweigh. Like others have said, the consistency is not there. I do like them for the fact that if I’m loading myself, I can look at my phone to see if im getting close. Or hauling hazardous materials, when I can’t be in the loading zone without suiting up, I can check my phone and get a round about weight. Appweigh shows air pressure as well as weight, I like that feature. Not trying to get you to go with appweigh, just telling you my experience with it.

I'm wanting to get BIT sensors but wanting to find someone who has them and is satisfied with the sensors.

Very acccurate. I attached a scale ticket and screen shot. The key is calibration you have to weigh while empty and again while loaded. If you use old scale tickets, drive at all or use old weights it will mess up and you will have to redo. These things will save a fortune.

I have them on both of my Hoppers trailers and they seem to work well. Every now and then I would calibrate them. My driver was so good at it he actually told a loader that he was overloaded and how much and the loader guy said he wasn't until my driver pulled up on their scales and then he showed the loader guy the weight on his app it was only off about 300 lbs.

I had them on truck and trailer they helped but not to reliable when trying to connect with the app. When in snow and icy conditions the were always off with weight. They would probably work best on dry box trailer and refrigerated unit better and in a mild climate. Load guage has been more reliable with commodity loads.

I bought them they don't really work. The one for the trailer hasn't worked since 3 weeks after i got it. I've fought with their customer service since and never got a replacement or anything. They never really calibrated correctly and i was at a cat scale every other day for 3 weeks. Spent 450 bucks on crap and another 250 in cat scales trying to calibrate them.

I've bought a set for a truck and trailer.They have not worked since we got them.We tried with you to get them to work correctly but no luck.Currently on the shelf and replaced with rite weigh. I do like wireless and ease installation.

My brother in law had them and took them off. They didn't stay accurate and was always changing.

Definitely not worth buying. Cannot get them to calibrate properly. Received some help from their IT department, but to no avail. Have remove the sensors and put them on the shelf since I asked if I could have my bunny back I have not heard a reply cents. If you have any questions, please contact me at 605-484-7738
