On-board weighing

Take control of your productivity

On-board weighing

Keep it moving with On-Board Weighing, a factory-fit system which allows you to measure your bucket load on-the go, eliminating any disruption to the workflow. Simply use Volvo Co-Pilot – the high-resolution 10'' touchscreen – to monitor loading progress, track materials and trucks, and change work orders in seconds.

Operate safely

Increase jobsite safety with a customisable alert, which notifies the operator if the bucket load exceeds a set limit. Get a full view of your surroundings when reversing thanks to the optional rear-view camera which automatically combines the rear-view and load information into a single screen. For additional safety, certain functions are disabled when speed exceeds 10km/h.

Loaded with benefits

Loading made easy

A guided calibration process, colored bars which indicate load activity progress, and icons which give insight into why the weight is not locked properly, combine to facilitate the loading process.

Work orders

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

Working modes

Choose Project mode to control the total load of multiple trucks, or Trip mode, ideal for loading single trucks or crushers.

Superior production efficiency

Get it right first time with tonnage measurements accurate to within +/- 1% for every bucket-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%.

Partial unloading

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

Buckets, and more

The system is optimised for standard bucket operations, and suitable for high tip buckets and side dump buckets. It is also compatible with forks and grapples (accuracy +/- 2%).

Reporting on demand

Production data is stored in the Volvo Co-Pilot and can be exported over the air to a cloud-based portal, or by using a USB-stick, enabling you to analyse machine usage and productivity. Fully integrated to the machine, the system populates CareTrack – combining productivity data and fuel data into a single report.
