Hands On: Ultraship 55 lb Digital Scale [Grain] With Removable Face

UltraShip 55 lb. Digital Postal Shipping Reviewthe Ultra-55 with 150 grams of calibration weights

I’ve used the Ultraship Ultra-55 as a grain scale for years and years.  Since April of 2009.

The UltraShip 55 features… A large 55 lb/25 kg capacity.  Tare, hold and auto off features.  Removable face for weighing oversize objects (buckets of grain).  Can be powered by C batteries of via an optional AC Adapter.

One my favorite features of this scale is the removable front face.  That allows you to weigh larger items and still easily see the display.  The tare feature is also important.

Front face disengaged

10 lb bag of grain

This picture shows a 10 lb bag of Maris Otter.  It shows 10 lbs 5 and 1/2 ounces.  I don’t believe that reading is inaccurate.  The bag itself weighs a little bit and I’m sure the distributor puts a little extra in there to ensure we’re getting our moneys worth.

This picture shows the scale weighing the same bag, this time inside of a 5 gallon bucket that has been subtracted from the total weight using this scale’s tare feature.  The tare feature allows out to zero out the scale with receiving vessel, in this case a bucket, on it.  This effectively subtracts the weight of the container.  Notice the identical weight reading.  This scale is consistent.

The scale weighing 28 grams (around 1 ounce) of calibration weights.  Having used this scale for years, I knew that it was a great scale, but I will say that in doing the work for this post, I was surprised by it’s accuracy with smaller weights.  I still recommend an accurate gram scale for hops and especially water salts, but this scale certain turns in a respectable nearest gram performance and could be used for hops if it was your only scale.

img_orderThis is a great scale that I have used for years.  I can heartily recommend it to you if you for use as a grain scale.
