Competitive Pricing

talon-hv-field-pourJP Bowlin is a leading distributor and authorized service and warranty center for four major American made truck and rail scale manufacturers. How do we do it? We sell a high volume of truck and rail scales, which means we can offer volume pricing.

Turn-key Installations

We have relationships with multiple Contractors and Installation Companies around the country so we can handle all site work, concrete, installation and calibration at the time of start up. Let us manage the entire project for you.


Because of our relationships with multiple truck and rail scale manufacturers, we have access to multiple sizes and capacites of “standard” truck and rail scale configurations, plus custom designs of all types. Do you have difficult site requirements, or an idea that you want to explore to weigh your vehicles? Then give us a call – we can help!


FS_survivor_otr_steelWhat good is a scale without accessories? We have printers, scoreboards, advanced “smart” indicators, and much more. We can even automate the scale house with “driver assist terminals” so you can collect and send transaction data to a remote location without any costly personnel needed to operate the scale.


Did you buy a scale from someone else, but you are not happy with their service capabilities or turn-around times? With a team of over 25 trained Technicians, 3 Heavy Capacity weight trucks in Texas and over $200,000 in spare parts in stock (and access to most other parts or load cells via next day delivery), we can help cut your down-time dramatically. JP Bowlin offers 24/7 emergency service and free estimates on repairs, overhauls, and scale re-locations.


centurion3sm-DTCompliance is important! Our Technicians are licensed by the State of Texas Weights and Measures Dept, and we are authorized to put your scale into Service in a Legal for Trade application. Plus, all of our calibrations are done with NIST Traceable weights that are certified by the State of Texas every year, and all work is done according to Handbook 44 guidelines. If you are outside the State of Texas, don’t worry. We have relationships with many other calibration providers that are certified in their state.
