Curt BetterWeigh™ Mobile Towing Scale Smartphone Ready


This video is about the BetterWeigh™ mobile towing scale – a Bluetooth-enabled, smartphone-compatible device that plugs into any OBD-II port and weighs the vehicle, trailer, cargo, tongue weight, pin weight, weight distribution and trailer brake gain.

Equipped with TowSense™ technology, BetterWeigh™ provides real-time, live measurements to take the guesswork out of towing and hauling. With it, you can know exactly how much weight you’re towing, and whether it’s safe to tow with your vehicle.

It has virtually no installation requirements. BetterWeigh™ simply plugs into the OBD-II vehicle diagnostic port below the steering wheel, wirelessly links with your smartphone and comes with a free, downloadable app.

Unlike physical towing scales and tongue weight scales, BetterWeigh™ gives you a digital readout, sent right to your smartphone -- no more walking to the back of the vehicle to check the weight.

BetterWeigh™ also makes brake controller setup fast, easy and accurate by calculating the exact trailer brake gain needed for your particular load size.

The CURT BetterWeigh™ mobile towing scale is compatible with Apple iOS and Android OS. The downloadable app is intuitive, easy to use and completely free.

BetterWeigh™ Features & Benefits

  • Measures real-time vehicle-trailer weights for safer, easier towing and hauling
  • Bluetooth connection provides active readouts on the driver’s smartphone
  • No-install, plug-and-play setup into vehicle diagnostic port (OBD-II) below the dash
  • Weighs vehicle, trailer, cargo, tongue and pin weight and weight distribution
  • Provides easy brake controller setup by measuring exact trailer brake gain needed
  • Wireless, compact, portable design

ECCO TAILORS SAFETY SOLUTIONS FOR PUBLIC WORKS

CUSTOMIZED WARNING AND LIGHTING DEVICES FOR DIVERSE APPLICATIONS

ECCO Tailors Safety Solutions for Public Works

Whether patching up a road, clearing brush or building a playground, there is never a dull moment in the Public Works department. Each job requires a specialized set of tools and often demands the use of different vehicles or heavy equipment to accomplish the task at hand. Fortunately, ECCO’s diverse product line meets the many needs of Public Works so crews can operate safely while protecting the citizens they serve.
Choose from a vast array of warning and white lighting products to enhance visibility on site and on the road. Beacons and lightbars are must-haves for work trucks and other vehicles that primarily operate in the roadway and make frequent stops. Directional lights complement that visual warning capability and worklights provide useful illumination on low-light worksites.
Reversing safety equipment is also essential, especially when operating in high-traffic areas and neighborhoods. Back-up alarms are more advanced now and they can adjust their tone based on ambient noise. Multi-frequency alarms reduce noise pollution and may be an appropriate solution in residential communities. Supplement the alarm with a camera system so operators can see potential hazards and maneuver in tight spaces.
Learn about these and many other devices that are designed to work hard and keep people safe with ECCO's Public Works Solutions Guide. ECCO has you covered with a no-hassle warranty and unparalleled customer service. With reduced lead times, easy-to-install components and a helpful technical service team, your crews will be ready to roll out for another shift in no time.

Venturo Crane Selector Web Tool Pairs Vehicles with Cranes


Venturo® has released a new finder on its website to keep job sites equipped with the proper service cranes. The brand-new Crane Selector utilizes gross vehicle weight, necessary boom length and maximum load capacity to pair vehicles with the most suitable Venturo product.
Venturo cranes are designed for an array of light, moderate and heavy-duty applications, and matching vehicles with the right equipment to meet job requirements improves efficiency and safety on the job site. The innovative Crane Selector is a simple, effective tool to provide operators with the proper crane package.
Each crane, and crane line, is designed for a set of specific uses. Selecting the appropriate crane is an integral step toward more efficient operations and a safer job site. No piece of equipment, even the ideal crane, is 100% foolproof, but an improper product will at best limit performance and at worst endanger workers. The Crane Selector takes some guesswork out of the equation.
This new offering from Venturo joins Venturo Logic Controls™ (VLC) as another recent innovation from the crane manufacturer. The VLC™ Crane Control Management System brings safety, control and reliability to the company’s fully-hydraulic service cranes. This system offers safe, comfortable and smart crane operations by utilizing features like overload protection, a pistol-grip controller and visible safety alerts.
From dependable equipment to state-of-the-art technology, Venturo is ahead of the curve when it comes to safe, effective crane solutions. Try the new Crane Selector tool at www.venturo.com/support/crane-selector. For more information on electric, hydraulic and additional crane options from Venturo, visit www.venturo.com or call 800-226-2238.
