Marsden V-180 Large Veterinary Scale

Marsden's V-180 provides, at last, a low cost solution for those needing a large veterinary scale.

The large, lightweight weighing platform has a built-in handle, and the indicator is magnetic - meaning it can be easily secured to a table top.

Launched in January 2019, the V-180 is already out-selling most of what is already a highly-popular range of veterinary scales from Marsden.

BOSCHE Animal Scale ETW-VA

Easy transport

The scale is equipped with three wheels for easy vertical transport. Two large solid rubber wheels (150 mm) and one retractable guide wheel will allow to move and store the scale easily, even on an uneven ground. A 180° degree turn in a narrow aisle is not a problem. Also, the indicator can be collapsed for transport which will protect it.

Low step height and slatted floor

The step height of this scale is only 35 mm. Therefore pigs can easily enter and leave the scale. Every scale is equipped with a slatted antislip floor. This avoids the collection of dirt onto the scale and it is easy to clean.

Stainless steel construction and load cells

The complete scale frame and the load cells are made of stainless steel. It is easy to clean and maintains its shape and structure over years. The material has been proven over decades in the farm environment. The load cells are sealed in a special laser-welding process.

Compact stainless steel indicator with 30 mm display

The stainless steel display unit has been specifically designed for the ETW VA. The 30mm high digits are backlit and clearly readable from every angle. The folding mechanism is very practical in use.

Sorting lights with three color status indicator

The indicator is equipped with a three color status indicator. The target weight can be entered, a “traffic light system” will indicate the weight of the animal: Green for the correct target weight, yellow for too light animals and red for too heavy animals. Colors are easier to compare than numbers and will speed up the weighing process.

Optional data storage

All recorded weights can be stored in the indicator with date and time and can be transferred to an USB-Stick. The data can be archived and evaluated on any Windows PC with help of the included software.

Easy to use

Only one person is required to weigh the pigs due to the lever mechanism used to open the front door. The indicator was developed to weigh animals and does not have any confusing additional functions. The data can be transferred to an USB stick any time.

Pen and spray can holder

The holder is made from highly durable material and has space for two pens and cans. The diagonal arrangement prevents them falling out when transporting the scale vertically.

Lowered frame backward

The particular geometry of the frame ensures that the animals like entering the scale. The lowered front part of the scale and the clear view through the latticed sides keep the animal calm. The rear of the scale is higher and prevents the animals from jumping over. Transport will be easy due to the compact construction and mobility of the scale.
