How to Identify Original Sumec Firman Generators in Zambia
Even the manufacturer of the Sumec Firman brand of generators is aware of the possibility of counterfeiting, especially in the Zambian market. For this reason, they have put some anti-fake indicators on various parts of their products.
Here are the various ways to spot an original or fake Sumec Firman generator:
- The name “FIRMAN” is boldly engraved on the fuel tank (for their petrol generators)
- The name is also engraved on the AVR, air filter, engine block, alternator rear frame, carburetor, cylinder head cover, and muffler.
- If you cannot spot the name on any of these parts, run!!
- Even if you see “SUMEC” or “SUMEC FIRMAN” engraved on these parts, you’re spotting a fake. Only the name “FIRMAN” is engraved on these parts.
- Note, however, that the names “SUMEC FIRMAN” or “SUMEC” may be printed (not engraved) on other parts of the generator. This doesn’t mean it is fake. You can only be sure it’s a fake when the name “FIRMAN” is not engraved on the parts mentioned above.
- Note how the “F” in the name “FIRMAN” is written with a dot used as it’s middle piece rather than a short horizontal line.
