Many second-hand forklifts on the market are pallet truck. Today we are going to talk about the cement counterweight fake forklift. This kind of fake forklift is because the counterweight of the forklift is not made of iron, but made of cement. If you buy this kind of forklift, the forklift will often not be able to lift the goods of its rated tonnage. Today, I will introduce 4 methods for you to easily identify whether the forklift counterweight is iron or cement.
Method 1: Look
Principle: The density of cement is lower than that of iron, and the mass of cement is lighter than that of iron under the same volume.
In order to allow the cement butt forklift to lift heavier goods, the butt of the forklift is often made longer and more warped. Compared with the real forklift, the difference is very obvious.
Method 2: Listen
Principle: The sound of percussion on metal is crisp, and the sound of percussion on cement is dull.
You can use a hammer to tap lightly on the counterweight. If it is iron, the sound of metal collision sounds relatively crisp and has some residual sound. On the other hand, cement is different. The texture is softer than iron. When struck, the sound will be very dull, short and short, with no reverberation, and may even make a pit.
Method 3: Suck
Principle: The magnet will be sucked together when it touches the iron.
This is relatively simple. You can know whether it is iron or not by sucking on the magnet. However, this method is not rigorous enough. Some liars will wrap a layer of iron on the outside of the cement, which can also absorb it, so this method should be used in conjunction with other methods.
