The balance weight of the internal combustion balance weight forklift truck is usually referred to as "counterweight". The balance weight material generally uses HT100 cast iron, its main function is to balance the longitudinal overturning moment produced by the quality of the goods, so as to maintain the longitudinal stability of the forklift.
Generally speaking, the weight of the balance weight, the center of mass and the rear suspension are given by the overall layout of the whole vehicle. The selection of the weight of the balance weight mainly takes into account the full load stacking of the forklift and the longitudinal stability of the full load. The weight of the counterweight directly affects the safety coefficient of the forklift before and after balancing, which is the main parameter determining the safety factor of the forklift truck. When the total mass G of the balance weight is determined, the post bridge center can be used as the benchmark. According to the assembly form of the balance weight on the frame, the installation dimensions of the balance weight can be accurately determined. There are 2 upside down V - shaped suspension blocks on the upper side of the fork truck trailing frame, which can be rebalanced by reusing 2 bolts.
