Balanza (pesa) colgante
Explanation:
Platform scale is balanza de plataforma
Weighting Hoppers are scales in silos, containers, etc.
Grab is coger, sujetar, agarrar so I will lean towards a hanging balance which are also used industrially like scales in cranes and such.
I would also ask, to make sure, how they are used.
