Product Description

Professional-quality William Powers® scale is the last scale you'll ever have to buy! You've seen large dial scales like this in health clubs and doctors' offices. Now you can have one at home! This scale measures weight with reliable accuracy using a calibrated spring mechanism. The extra large platform gives you more foot space and its over-sized so it's easy to read. Heavy duty steel construction, a non-skid rubber surface for safety and a 300lb. capacity with markers for tracking weight loss or gain or for multiple users. 17 x 11-1/4 x 3-1/4.

It stays zeroed as well as most.

It is a preference decision and for my bias towards a dial scale, I will never be sorry I purchased this scale (and another for my mother).

Much bigger than I expected, long and bulky, not for a small space.

Thought a dial scale would be more accurate and took a chance on this because of the great price and description. Set it correctly, sat on an even floor, but way off the mark, consistently registering about 10 lbs. lighter than the doctor's office scale. My old digital scale was only three lbs. off. When stepping off the needle always settled about three to four lbs. to the left or right of the zero. Required too much adjusting. Much bigger than I expected, long and bulky, not for a small space. Tried to return it, but the least expensive shipping was more than half of what I paid so it's now sitting in the closet. Don't waste your money on this one.

I returned a digital scale (Amazon has the greatest customer service on returns), and purchase this scale for 20 bucks on bfdeals.com. This is a fantastic, physician like scale that I wouldn't pay 139 bucks for, but is definitely a best value for 20. You compare this scale to similar priced scales at any department store and you will see that this scale is meant to last for years of continuous use. The real question you have to ask yourself is "do I want a calibrated spring dial scale, or a digital scale"? It is a preference decision and for my bias towards a dial scale, I will never be sorry I purchased this scale (and another for my mother). I set the scale to zero initially and it has been extremely accurate on every check!!! If you like a digital scale however, then this scale is probably not for you at any price. The digital IS convenient with easy to read numbers and good looks (e.g.: EatSmart precision digital scale for $29 dollars on Amazon), and are reasonably accurate, but I just again really wanted an analog "doctor's office like" well made scale.

If you have large feet you will not like small area to stand on. I am size twelve and the back of my heels hang off. Eight inches from bottom of dial to edge of platform. Great scale for small footed pigeon toed people. May return if size 8 wife complains again about it.

By L. Allis on January 24, 2014
I agree pretty much with reviewer SQUALLIE. It's a heavy, stable steel platform, a cheapie that works better than you might expect. This is indeed available for 20 bucks delivered (or less). At that price it's a good buy.

Spring scales like this work on thick carpet, although the reading is squishy and you have to make the effort to stand still for it to settle in. It stays zeroed as well as most. The platform is stable and easy for a size 9 fellow to stand on; the rubber mat has a reassuring deep-diamond surface. The dial is readable for old eyes. It gives repeatable readings comfortably within a pound; dial seems to claim an accuracy of give or take 2 pounds. There are no kilogram figures.

I haven't given it much of a trial yet, but I feel confident it was a useful purchase for the money, a heavily built old fashioned low-tech thing that will probably last a time. Chinese scales looking like this are all over the web, and one suspects they are all the same regardless of the nameplate.
