Tru-Test Limited—2000 & 3000 Series Weigh Scale Indicators

Identifying features

2000 series weigh scale indicators manufactured between 1998 and 2005 (serial numbers from 120 to 15316)

What are the defects?

Tru-Test Ltd has identified a problem with the batteries in older versions of the 2000 and 3000 series livestock weigh scale indicators. Standard NiMH (Nickel-Metal Hydride) batteries, such as the ones used in these indicators, can in certain circumstances emit small amounts of hydrogen gas. It is possible for pressure to build up over time and through some form of external trigger (such as static electricity), may result in the front panel of the indicator cracking with force.

What are the hazards?

If the defect occurs, a person could be hit by a flying object and could sustain an injury.

What should consumers do?

If you own or use an affected indicator please contact Tru-Test on 1800 463 837 or email recall@trutest.com to arrange for a service to remedy the defect at no cost to the consumer.
