Installation of the new Weighbridge

This week saw the installation of a new weighbridge at Orkney Auction Mart.
The old one had been in place for 17 years and the base was showing signs of deterioration.
As the weighbridge is a vital piece of equipment the decision was taken to renew it now before the busy back-end sales.
It was quite a challenge to install as it weights approx 2 tonnes and had to be carried in section by section through the main ring and penning area.

Here are some pictures as the weights were assembled.
