I wouldn't take it that far, like I said I would be able to tell within 200 pounds over a 7 ton load. The scales were always consistent, the only factor is the water. Assuming soaking wet when you load it and then drain the truck by tilting the box it's about 200 pounds with larger sizes. Maybe 300 with rice. That's over a full load not just one ton.
