I love the idea of the rollers and the leverage. I must admit I have been looking for a while and not seen anything as clever.
An idea for anyone who lives in a rural area I bought a set of 4 load cells and a digital readout box that had once been a set of cattle scales. I got the lot at auction for $100. After soldering up the connector on the power pack they work just fine. They read up to 2,000 kilograms per cell and readout to 1 decimal place.

A lot tougher than bathroom scales and I suspect give more repeatable results.
