On-board weighing

Take control of your productivity

Make overloading, underloading, reweighing and waiting times a thing of the past with On-Board Weighing, providing real-time insight into the bucket’s load. By measuring bucket load on the go, the dynamic system eliminates any disruption to the workflow.

Loading made easy

Simply use the Volvo Co-Pilot touchscreen to monitor loading progress, track materials and trucks, as well as change work orders in seconds.

A customizable alert notifies the operator if the bucket load exceeds a set limit. When travelling at speeds over 10km/h (6 mph) certain functions are disabled, avoiding operator distractions.


Simple mode – New

Getting started with On-Board Weighing has never been easier, thanks to Simple Mode. Accessed by entering a pin code, this simplified version limits the tool to three core functions: viewing of the current load in trip mode, the loaded weight and printing a simplified receipt.

Low load mode – New

The perfect solution when working with lightweight material, this function enables operators to weigh loads which are currently under the lower limit of the system, reducing the limit of the machine’s rated working load from 5% to 1%.

Precision loading

Tonnage measurements are accurate to within +/- 1% for every load. When site conditions or customer requirements make it impossible to lock the load within this margin, simply switch to within an accuracy of +/- 2%.

Work orders/partial unloading

Select customer name and target tonnage with just a few touches.

Managing the last bucket of the trip is easy with tip off capability.

Buckets, and more

Optimized for standard bucket operations, the system is also suitable for high tip buckets and side dump buckets, as well as compatible with forks and grapples (accuracy +/-2%). What’s more, operators will benefit from a guided calibration process.

Reporting on demand

Production data is stored in the Volvo Co-Pilot and can be exported over the air or by using a USB-stick. The system populates CareTrack combining productivity data and fuel data into a single report.

Task modes

Choose between four modes which will adapt the information displayed according to the task at hand: Trip Meter, Truck Loading, Stockpiling or Process Loading.
