Short: Hopper Scale

July 19, 2011:

The hopper scale is located near the track-side of the elevator. A hopper there receives grain from the bins above and weighs it, using this scale, before sending it down another chute into the loading spout, and from there into the waiting train cars. This is how the elevator operator records the quantity of grain being shipped out.
