Reader Tip: Great Deal – 75 lb Digital Grain Scale with Oversized Platform… $18.90

Homebrew Finds - Thu, 10/09/2014 - 09:35

Thanks to HBF Reader Glenn for this tip!

This highly rated digital scale with 75 lb capacity and oversized weighing platform is down to $18.90.  That’s just over $4 less than the last time it appeared on HBF.  The manufacturer says that the weighing platform on this scale is 24% larger than most scales.  I have the 35 lb version and it works nicely as a grain scale.  The larger platform works well and easily holds a 5 gallon bucket while still allowing you to see the display.

It has a backlit display (good), auto hold or manual hold (good – I don’t like the auto hold feature for weighing grain.  It’s great it can be turned off), tare feature (required in my book) and AC Adapter included (hey.. that’s good too!)

This scale can also be calibrated using any known weight.  That’s a pretty great feature as some calibration procedures require odd or oversized calibration weights.  For example the Weighmax 4819 requires a massive 30 lb calibration weight.

For Comparison, the 35 lb version actually selling for $3.10 more than the 75 lb version.

Why Slugs Love Beer
