Updates to Axle Weight Calculator: Bogie Split, etc.

Updates to Axle Weight Calculator: Bogie Split, etc. 1024 403 Sorcha O'Grady

We released another update to our Axle Weight Calculator on Monday. If you’re working on a vehicle with a pusher or tag axle, you can now calculate the distribution of weight on the pusher, tag and driven axles (or the ‘bogie split’). This feature was added in response to requests from users in Canada, Ireland and USA.

What else is new?

Driver Weight

If the weight of the driver is included in the unladen weight of the vehicle (as per the vehicle specification sheet or certificate), the calculation now excludes the driver when calculating the weight of Extras. This improvement was brought to our attention by a user in Ireland.

Vehicles Added

This month, we have added vehicles to our library from DAF, Ford, FUSO, Hino, Isuzu, Iveco, Kenworth, Scania and Tata. These vehicles were added in response to requests from users in Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, South Africa and the USA.

Other Improvements

We’ve applied some further enhancements to the User Interface to improve the usability of the app. We have also put in a lot of work behind the scenes to improve performance, and have applied fixes for some inevitable bugs.

Next Up

We have a team of dedicated developers who work together on monthly ‘sprints’ to release updates to the app.  When our users request new features, we can respond quickly by prioritising them for inclusion in future sprints. Some of the items at the top of our To Do list right now include Semi-trailers and Multiple Point Loads. The next update will be released at the end of August.
