Re: Sherline Trailer Tongue Scale

I have used etrailer.com a couple times. Great company to deal with. I never realized that they had a Canadian warehouse.

And you are right, UPS nationally is fine, it just sucks big time for international.

Re: Sherline Trailer Tongue Scale

Not all products are available from the Ontario warehouse so you have to do a phone order, not online.

Re: Sherline Trailer Tongue Scale

Which model did you get? Just wondering if the lower capacity models give a more accurate reading.

Re: Sherline Trailer Tongue Scale

I got the 2,000 lb. model. I didn't and don't see any others offered on etrailer.com, but the manual says that you can use any hydraulic pressure gauge that reads in psi ( which you read as pounds - 200psi is 200lbs. )
I gather that the 1,000 lb. and 3,000 lb. scales are the same except for the gauge. You can order a different gauge from Sherline.
You get the most accurate reading in the middle of the range ( at 1,000 lbs. for the 2,000 lb model ). Sherline says the gauge is accurate to 2 per cent in the middle and 3 per cent at the extreme high or low readings.
I suspect that this tiny difference is why etrailer.com doesn't stock the 1,000 and 3,000 lb models.

Re: 17 eh Trailer Tongue Scale

Not having a scale at hand I modified a very cheap 2 ton bottle jack. Works great, lift anything a mm and you have the weight. It requires multiplying with a constant to suit the piston dia. There was lots of room in the iron base for a 1/4" NPT to suit the gauge.
Tongue weight turned out to be very light so I will shift the load.
