Rice Lake SURVIVOR OTR Steel Deck Truck ScaleThe Rice Lake SURVIVOR OTR steel deck truck scale offers J.A. King customers an outstanding design that incorporates the most advanced engineering and production technology.

Working with J.A. King experts, the SURVIVOR OTR steel deck truck scale is easy to install so your operation can be up and running quickly. With the industry’s strongest weighbridge design, high quality load cells and lightning protection, reduce operational down time and weigh as many as 250 trucks per day for 25 years without a trace of weighbridge fatigue.


  • Weighbridge Design – The weighbridge on the OTR steel deck model consists of a diamond checkered steel top plate welded on top of twelve 12-inch wide-flange, 14 pound structural I-beams. The wide flange beam construction helps minimize span deflection and lengthens the life of your truck scale.
  • Load Cells and Mounting System – Each load cell has an individual capacity of 75,000 pounds. Higher capacity load cells handle heavier loads with far fewer failures. Wire-braided copper transient bypass cables are provided at each load cell mount for individual load cell protection from direct lightning strikes to the scale or weighbridge. Load cells and electronic components have top access through the scale deck, allowing for convenient maintenance, even where space is limited.
  • Breathing Room Below – The Steel Deck OTR features an open-bottom design. The open-bottom design allows unrestricted airflow, eliminating the cavity where rust-causing moisture can build up.
  • Durable Finish – All SURVIVOR scales are thoroughly cleaned before painting to remove mill scale, oils or other surface contaminants. An asphalt undercoating is applied to the interior and underside of the entire scale. A high-performance epoxy primer is applied to all steel before the specialized hard-coat alkyd enamel completes the process.
  • Lightning Protection – Every SURVIVOR truck scale comes complete with a surge voltage protection system. The junction box is provided with individual transient circuitry protection. The entire system is grounded to a single-point grounding system connected to the power ground.
  • Easy Expansion – Versatile and cost-effective, the OTR was designed to change with your business. Heavy-duty, self-seating hinge connectors offer easy installation of the pre-assembled modules, and simplify future expansion.
