be tared (zeroed out).
When a load is tared, an additional load up to
the full capacity of the scale can be weighed.
Example: The Model DR150 has a capacity
of 150 lbs if a load of 20 lbs on that scale is
tared (zeroed out), an additional load or
loads of up to 130 lbs can be weighed.

weight displayed and return to zero, press
the Tare/Hold again. With “H off” selected,
the scale display will not show (hold) the
weight after the load has been removed.
