Horse Weigh Kentucky Platform

Key points

  • Supplied with lifting/carrying handles (replacing the trolley / dolley), for lifting in or out of the pit (See: Product Mobility)
  • Complete aluminium construction + high quality “non-slip” green astroturf (artificial grass) flooring. Our extensive in house trials have shown that our Astroturf flooring is at least 50% quieter for the horses when walking on/off the Horse Weigh platforms, as compared to our previously supplied green and black rubber flooring surfaces.
  • Comes complete with a hand-held ‘easy to use’ JR5000 Bluetooth digital read-out unit which is mains rechargeable
  • Comparisons for all the Weight Read-Out Indicators available as extra.
  • 24 months warranty/guarantee on all new models – please do not carry out any of the following otherwise our 24 months warranty is immediately invalidated. 

1. Do not move our weighing platforms with a tractor or forklift, as you will, without fail, badly damage the electronics that are underneath the weighing platforms.

2. Do not weigh horses on our weighing platforms with studs in their shoes, these must be completely removed prior to weighing.

3) For any damage caused to our electronics by rodents, including rats, then this damage is “not” covered under our 24 month warranty. We therefore strongly recommend all clients to have a robust rodent protection policy in place at all times.
