Sherline, the world leader in tongue weight scales, has produced this 5th wheel hitch scale at the request of their customers.
This trailer tongue weight scale is specifically designed to attach to most fifth-wheel trailer hitches. The piston has also been modified to accept the standard 2-13/16″ diameter king pin and the locating pin is for hitches that accept the standard 2-13/16″ king pin.
Machined from solid billet steel and aluminum.
3.25″ piston and body diameter, a 6″ square by 1″ thick aluminum base, and is about 6″ high. Actual weight is 11 lb. Gauge diameter is 2.75″. This scale comes with a one year guarantee.
All gauges have a dual-scale gauge that reads in pounds on the outside of the ring and the kilogram equivalent on the inside. This feature has been requested by many trailer users outside the USA and has now been incorporated into all the scales. The 0-5000 lb gauge reads to 2250 kg.
NOTE: When you receive your fifth-wheel trailer tongue weight scale, the “locater pin” will be screwed into the top of the base for ease of shipping and storing. Unscrew the locator pin and screw it into the center hole in the bottom of the base as seen in the photo above.
