Product Details

It's Like Getting Two Scales In One Need a shipping scale? Postal scale? The UltraShip has got ya covered. To get the most accurate weight readings of items both small and large, My Weigh designed this shipping scale with dual resolutions. Why? Small items, like letters and envelopes need more accurate weight readings since you pay by the ounce to mail them...Larger items, packages and boxes, require a higher capacity and are usually rounded up to figure shipping costs. This ultra scale's design will give you the accurate weight readings you need at a very affordable price.

Digital Remote Weight Display If you've ever had a tough time seeing the weights on your scale's display because of a large package, (or anything else that might cover your weight display) you'll know what a great feature this is. My Weigh designed this shipping and postal scale with a backlit weight display that pulls away from the scale so ya can see your weights even with a BIG package on the scale...the display's cord reaches over three feet long! When ya don't need the remote readout, just pop the display back into place on the front of the scale.

Hold Feature With this cool feature you can weigh your item, press the "HOLD" key, and remove your items from the scale. After you take your item off the scale, the weight reading will remain on the display. This can come in handy for larger can even switch through the different modes and see what your items weigh in each unit.

Tare Feature The tare button on the front of this digital postage scale can be pressed to "zero out" the weight on the scale. You can then add more weight, and the display will only show the weight of the items you're adding. This sure is useful when ya want to use the included attachment pieces for weighing your things, or if ya want to get separate weights of multiple items.

Programmable Auto-Off Feature If you've ever had your scale turn off on ya in the middle of important measurements, you'll realize what a blessing this feature is. You can program the Ultra 55 to turn off automatically, or to stay on until you turn it off yourself.

It Remembers The Last Unit Ya Used If your application needs weights in the same unit of measurement, (like ounces for instance), it can be a real pain if your scale always turns on ready to weigh in grams. It's a good thing the My Weigh Ultra Ship turns on displaying the unit of measurement you were using when ya turned it off.

30 YEAR MANUFACTURER'S WARRANTY! If ya have a problem with this scale, just send it to MyWeigh's warranty center in Phoenix, Arizona. They'll fix or replace your scale and send it on its way back to ya within a week of receiving it. You should expect your replacement to arrive in about two to three weeks from the day you send the original off. Keep in mind that sometimes MyWeigh runs out of stock, which can cause a delay in the warranty replacement process.

Great for Home Brewing 5 stars

I got this (along with the AC adapter and the stainless steel top accessory) to use for home brewing. I am very happy with all items, and the service from Old WIll Knot. The Ultraship 35 would probably have been fine for me as well, but for the small price difference I figured I would prefer this model. The 2 gram / .1 oz resolution is plenty accurate for hops weighing, and I appreciate the large capacity for weighing out grains. The display is large and easy to read, and I like that it comes off the main uint. It IS a bit difficult to remove because the tabs / latch are a bit difficult to operate. So I have I disconnected the display and just leave it resting where it goes on the unit, but not latched in, so it's easy to move if I want but otherwise stays in place. I've only been using it a little while, but have no complaints so far. Recommended.

Weighs small accurately and large and heavy as I can handle 5 stars

An excellent single scale for all my needs, The removable face for large packages allows me to keep the scale on a higher shelf and still be able to read the weight. I released the face and taped it back to the scale in a more vertical position. Works great!

Great Scale-no operator's manual and won't supply one! 3 stars

Got the 55lb. scale BUT no operator manual anywhere. The message on the website offers-'To get a PDF of the manual just click here' and I did so BUT there was no result. It doesn't WORK! So I emailed them, you have to 'open a Ticket'( Huh? ). So I did so and filled it out and told them I wanted the PDF manual they offered. What did I get as a response? They gave me a link for the manual and said if that didn't work to request that it can be sent to my direct email, but all it did is send me BACK to the website to the same inoperative request button, and then they CLOSED the ticket, thank you! So I emailed them again asking for a PDF to be sent to my direct email, like they offered. NO RESPONSE to that SECOND request for the operator's manual. They just don't seem to care. I am resisting the urge to call them fearing I am going to lose my temper with these bozos. You know, even my counter top Blender and my hand held beater/mixer came with an instruction manual. But a sophisticated electronic delicate instrument like this scale doesn't come with an operator's manual? Are you kidding? Oh yeah, I figured out how to use the scale in a while, but that is not the point. No manual and NO response to my request for one! I should return it on principal but I need it now so I will call them later and let them know just what I think of their act. Knocking off 2 stars for No manual, and No response to my REQUEST for one either. Too bad if they don't like that!

Great Product - Horrible Service 1 stars

I ordered scale next day air and paid over $70 to have it delivered next morning. Per Old Will policy, they setup delivery with UPS and did not require a signature. Item was delivered to wrong building and I did not get it until late afternoon - well past time it was needed. Why would a company ship expensive scales and not require signature for delivery? I called and they said it was a UPS matter not their issue so I have to call UPS -- how can I request a refund from UPS when I did not even the shipping company? I would suggest talking to someone about shipping and delivery polices before you waste a ton of money like I did paying for something that you didn't even receive.

This is a great general purpose shipping scale - much better than the USPS scale it replace. The backlit display is easy to read and the controls/display can be easily detached when weighing large boxes. Only suggestion for improvement is to include an A/C adapter with the scale.

Q: What is the difference between the 55 & 35 models? I need it for weighing lotion/kitchen ingredients & packages Asked by: carol (1/12/2015) answer this question

A: Hey there Carol,

The main difference is the maximum capacities of the scales. The Ultraship 35 has a maximum capacity of 35 pounds, and the Ultraship 55 has a maximum capacity of 55 pounds.

The more subtle difference is the resolution of the scales. If you take a look at the "Weighing Modes" section for both of the scales, you'll notice the resolutions are different as well. As a rule of thumb, the higher the capacity for a scale, the lower the resolution.

Let's have a look at grams. The Ultraship 35 has a resolution of 2 grams with weights under 900 grams, and a resolution of 5 grams with weights over 900 grams.

The Ultraship 55 has a resolution of 2 grams with weights under 900 grams, which matches the Ultraship 35. However, with weights above 900 grams, the resolution changes to 10 grams; that differs from the Ultraship 35 by 5 grams.

These changes in resolution are incrementally the same throughout the weighing modes. (Pounds, Ounces, Pounds:Ounces and Kilograms)

Other than that, the scales are exactly the same.

Take care,

Q: Is calibration required? Not sure I have an accurate kg unit to use. Thanks Asked by: DT (2/23/2015) answer this question

A: Hey there DT,

You shouldn't have to recalibrate the scale, it comes factory calibrated. It's usually a good idea to recalibrate the scale if there is any physical trauma, extreme temperature changes, or if the scale works it's way out of calibration from normal use.

Take care,
