The last time this highly rated digital scale appeared on HBF it was selling for $21.26. At the time, that was a new record low Amazon price. As of this posting, it’s selling for $19.16. That’s just 6 cents off the current record low. That’s a great deal for a great scale. It ships free with Prime or a qualifying $35 order.
I own this scale and I can tell you that it makes for a nice grain scale. A 5 gallon bucket fits on the platform and you can still see the readout.
The manufacturer says that the weighing platform on this scale is 24% larger than most scales.
It has a backlit display (good), auto hold or manual hold (good – I don’t like the auto hold feature for weighing grain), 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 one digital scale I have requires a…. 30 lbs calibration weight.
From HBF Reader Mike: Ordered one of these a few days ago. Just received it. Initial impression of the scale is that it is good quality with nice features. Weight measurement out of the box was spot on. I compared 1 oz of hops against another scale I own with the new scale.
