Verifying Wheeled Loader Weighing Instruments
This one-day course (9 am to 5 pm) covers the test procedures required to verify wheeled loader weighing instruments usually connected to loaders used to weigh and load loose construction or landscape materials or connected to waste collection vehicles.
NOTE: The content of this course does not cover the testing of control instruments, which are usually non-automatic weighing instruments (NAWI), due to time constraints. If you do not have any current experience of testing/verifying NAWIs, it is strongly recommended that you attend the course Verifying non-automatic weighing instruments PRIOR to attending this course.
What to expect
This classroom training session will provide you with knowledge and mathematical skills to:
- understand the role of trade measurement within the national measurement system

- analyse a wheeled loader weighing instrument's operating environment to determine how it could impact on its performance
- verify a wheeled loader weighing instrument in accordance with test procedures
- understand the responsibilities of a verifier working under a servicing licence
The topics covered include:
- Australia's measurement system
- reference standards of measurement
- certificates of approval
- equipment required for testing
- control instruments
- test objects
- maximum permissible errors and standard procedures
- loading cycles
- zero-setting test
- eccentricity test
- weighing performance test
- limits of indication (over-range blanking) test
- load receptor (“Bucket”) location sensor test
