the difference in platform size between the PS500L
(12" x 12.4" x 2.4") and the WS-Series 15" x 15"
x 2.7" (h) x (w) x (d).
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.
construction is more heavy duty with the entire scale weighing 22 pounds
verse the PS500L only weighs 11 pounds. For the $45 difference
in price between the PS500L verses the WS500L we
always recommend the WS500L over the PS500L. 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
