Truck Information:
This 1936 International was built to travel around the United States and test public scales. Before 1935, truck scales were not correctly monitored and the federal government wanted to start a program to check the accuracy of public truck scales. There were 18 trucks built for this task. Trucks were built from 1935 to 1937. This particular truck is one of four built in 1936. The operator would use the truck’s crane to place 15-1,000 pound weights on the scale and record whether or not the scale was accurate. When the final reports were tallied at the end of the program in May 1941, it was determined that an astounding 71.2% of the scales were inaccurate and it became obvious that national standards and monitoring was needed. This truck was in service from November 5, 1936 to May 17, 1941.
