Capacity and Readability

What capacity do I need?  My old scale had a 30 lb capacity, do I need a 30 lb capacity on my new model?  What does the 0.01 lb mean? 

These are just a few of the questions that folks ask when purchasing a retail price computing scale.  Basically, the easiest thing to do is determine what is the typical weight amount you are going to be weighing.  For most people that amount usually falls well below 30 pounds.  However, there are times when you may need a larger capacity like 60 pounds.  When that happens, it’s great to have a scale like the CAS S2000 JR price computing scale.  The 60 lb model features a 60 lb max capacity with 0.02 lb readability.  However, this same scale also features the same readability up to 30 lbs that a typical retail scale with 30 lb. capacity would have, 0.01 lbs.  So, you get the best of both worlds in one scale.
