Now there is an economical alternative allowing people who weigh over 400 pounds to weigh themselves without spending $500, $600 or $700 for a physician's scale. The PS5AP weighs up to 500 pounds. Many people select the Siltec PS500L shipping scale over the PS5AP since the 30 inch tower with the permanently fixed indicator hits their stomach.

Be sure to read this article to help you decide.

Review all the specifications and answers to all your questions here.

Don't want to buy the PS5AP since you either don't need the indicator pole, don't want to assemble the indicator pole or want to just save a few bucks?  Then be sure to see the Siltec PS500L.

Compare the difference in platform size between the PS5AP (12" x 12.4" x 2.4") and the WS-Series 15" x 15" x 2.7" (h) x (w) x (d).  The PS5AP does have the post while the WS Series does not have a post, but for most people having the post isn't a necessity.

For many people the WS Series is a better choice, since the platform is larger and allows them to stand on the scale more comfortably or place oversized carton on the platform. 

The WS500L construction is more heavy duty with the entire scale weighing 22 pounds verse the PS5AP only weighs 14 pounds.  The difference in price between the PS5AP verses the WS500L is small and we always recommend the WS500L over the PS5AP.  Sure both units can weigh up to 500 lbs in 0.5 increments but the WS500L just does it better.  Since the WS500L has a bigger platform it distributes the load better over the scale.  Our analogy we be no different than a person pulling a camper with a 6 cylinder mini van verses another person pulling the same camper with a pickup truck with a large V-8 engine.  We all know the mini-van won't last long if you plan on towing a camper back and forth across the country for the next several years.  Read more here to help you decide what is best for you.

Hello Precision Weighing Balances,

Enjoyed talking with you the other day.  So here is living proof that everything is bigger in Texas.  Both pair of shoes are size 16EEEE and they carry a big man.  I'm 6ft. 4.5 inches tall and now I know my exact weight.  The scale works great and I am happy I went with your advice selecting the WS1000L with the 15" x 15" base to accomodate my large shoes.  My neighbor, and good friend, came over last night and weighed in at 425 lbs. 

Your advice also to go with the WS1000L over the WS500L is a smart choice since I never know if I encounter another Texan who is bigger than me and they might be over 500 pounds.  Purchasing a scale that weighs more towards the middle of the scale's weighing capacity makes good sense.  I won't disclose my weight but lets just say I've got him beat by a little bit.  Looking forward to seeing my "Boats" on the web.
