CAT scale weight

I decided to weigh my truck yesterday in preparation for tag renewal.Took it to a certified CAT scale at the local truck stop.I must admit i thought it weighed more than this.
2000 F-350 2wd DRW Supercab
1/2 tank of fuel
Steer Axle : 4140 lbs.
Drive Axle : 3340 lbs.
Gross Weight : 7480 lbs.
I tried to center it on pad 1 and 2,so i hope this is accurate.Thought this might be a good oppurtunity to compile truck weights under one thread.(Hope i didn't miss such a post.)Any thoughts?Thanks everyone.Happy Thanksgiving!

Yeah that sounds a lil low but you are 2wd so that takes some weight off.. my 02 scsb 2wd weighs in about 7k with a full tank(got a ranch hand style on the front end too, that adds a lil lol)

I'm gonna fill up with fuel and try another scale.My main purpose with the first weigh was to make sure my tag was sufficient.Perhaps 16 gallons of diesel is heavier than i think.
