i'm looking for input on one that can easily weigh (in lbs) granular fert. anyone have a handy suggestion?
For things like fertilizer (and mailing packages) I use the Escali Primo Digital Kitchen Scale
. They are inexpensive and get great reviews. I crosscheck it when I drop packages off at the post office and it is surprisingly accurate. Most of the similar inexpensive scales on Amazon have the same 11 lb capacity, so I suspect they all use the same (or very similar) internals.
To actually weigh granular products on the scale, I use a measuring pitcher like this 64oz Accu-Pour
. I just put it on the scale empty, tare the scale, then start weighing out my product a pitcher at a time. It is also available in a 128oz version
. These graduated pitchers are AWESOME for measuring out larger quantities of liquid products (which is why I bought it), so it serves double duty in the garage. :thumbup:
For small doses of herbicides I use the American Weigh Scales AWS-600-BLK
. It is also inexpensive, but if it is accurate enough for drug dealers it is accurate enough for Celsius. :lol:
