As per our experience,
If your company have large ground space
we advice to install pitless above ground type,
because this type will be more easy drain off water while heavy rain and rather lower build cost.
If your company have narrow space,
It can consider set in ground to save space,
Because it’s not need build both sides concrete ramps,but you should pay attention to making a good water drainage system.

Pitless weighbridge installation is recommended for the following applications.
For the measurement of easily spilled solids and dripping liquids (Such as stone yards, sand cities, coal yards, etc.)
For applications with weighing many truck per days(Measure more than 100truck per day)
(Such as reclamation projects, public weighbridges, ports, etc.)
