This scale is SOLD OUT! Only new PS60 scales are available. If we get more used PS60 scales, we will add them back onto the website.
Business is slow and we have just slashed our price on the USED PS60, Class III, Legal for Trade Scale. We typically sell the USED PS60 for $173.95, but we are temporarily blowing them out at $119.95. S&H via UPS Ground delivery to anywhere in the lower 48 states of the USA is only $17.50.
Everyone knows the Mettler Toledo PS60 being used as a shipping scale, but with this horrendous economy we are seeing local farmers using the scale as an alternative to the expensive price computing scales. Sure a price computing scale is better to sell produce, but a used PS60 and a hand calculator or paper and pencil if you are good at math is a lot cheaper than say a Ohaus RE30US Retail Price Scale costing $332.50. For those farmer's thinking about using the PS60 to weigh pumpkins, potatoes, peaches, etc you must remember the PS60 will ONLY work on direct AC power(means you need to plug the scale in a wall socket). The PS60 DOES NOT run off of batteries.
The USED Mettler Toledo PS60 scale is the ideal choice for PC-Based carrier shipping
systems. We also have USED PS60 with the USB interface with either the ABS platter for $149.95 or the Stainless Steel platter for $169.95. We calibrate every used Mettler Toledo PS60 Scale to be 100% sure every used Mettler PS60 worked perfectly fine prior to leaving our facility. These used scales are in good shape and should offer many, many years of accurate weighing. Since a brand new PS60 is so much more $$ it truly is ridiculous to buy new when you can buy used and save a barrel of cash. Click HERE to see a comparison table of of the PS60 we offer HERE.
The USED PS60 digital shipping scales we are selling on this web page come only with a RS-232
interface for connecting to your computer. You get the PS60 and AC Adapter, but you'll need to buy your own RS-232 serial cable at the local department store or computer store. We configure each PS60 for definition 4 which is for communication with UPS Worldship. If you want to use the PS60 for FED EX, DHL or other shipping manifest software programs you will need to change the definition profile and these instructions are in the user manual. If you need a user manual download and print it HERE since we don't include a manual when we ship out your used Mettler PS60 digital scale.
Many drop off shipping centers use a program called iShip and the definition setting for this is "def 7" even though the Mettler manual does not list this in their manual. iShip is used by most Mail Boxes Etc and The UPS Store both are owned by United Parcel Service (UPS). Many other franchise mail and parcel centers use the iShip Counter Manifest System since it allows for shipping packages with different carriers.
Check you computer prior to ordering if you want to connect the scale to your computer since many new computers no longer come standard with a serial RS-232 com port. If your computer only has USB ports then you will not be able to interface the scale with your PC, but instead use the USED PS60 as a stand alone scale.
All this take about definition profiles and configuration might be confusing you. You can eliminate this confusing by purchasing the USED Mettler PS60 with USB since all PS60 models with USB are automatically recognized with plugged into the computers USB port.
Every USED PS60 is tested and calibrate prior to shipping. This is truly a great buy and these USED PS60 have many, many more years of accurate weighing provided you don't abuse and overload the weighing platform.

Although the PS60 was designed as a shipping scale other people have purchased the scale as an affordable legal for trade scale for many different weighing applications. Laundry mats are constantly getting caught using scales that are not NTEP Approved.
If you charge a price per pound service for wash and dry, flat work, dry cleaning and other services the scale must be legal for trade NTEP approved. When the city weights and measures official comes in and writes a citation many store owners call us to get the right scale. Due to the poor economy everyone is trying to spend the least amount of money for a legal for trade class III scale and many buy these USED PS60.
Simply place a laundry basket on the scale, press the tare button to subtract the weight of the laundry basket and now throw the clothes in the laundry basket and the scale shows the weight of the clothes only. Now just use a calculate and multiple the weight time the price per pound you charge to clean cloths.
Another use people have found for the USED PS60 Mettler Scale would be to weigh produce. The picture above is a watermelon weighing in at 15.00 lbs. You could be weighing tomatoes, pumpkins, potatoes, squash and more and sell produce by the pound. We have even sold a few PS60 for people even weighing lobsters.
Please note the scale does not run off of batteries if you were planning to use the scale as a stand alone unit you must have a AC power receptacle.
The available uses for the PS60 are unlimited. We have sold these PS60 scales for weighing fire extinguisher, CO2 bottles & more. Everyday we have satisfied customers calling us telling how they used the PS60 and the bundle of money they saved purchasing this used Mettler Toledo Legal for Trade Class III, NETP Approved Scale.
