What are Kooi or telescopic forks?

Telescopic forks are an extremely useful attachment that can be fitted to the vast majority of forklift trucks. They are often known as "Kooi®" forks as this is the name of a well known manufacturer of telescopic forks.

The fitting of telescopic forks allows forks to be extended via the in-cab hydraulics, and can save the operator a lot of time and effort. If you or your operator needs to fit and remove fork extensions regularly, it could well be worth considering telescopic forks as an option. They are also very useful for double-deep pallet handling.

There are a couple of things to be aware of if fitting telescopic forks however:

  • If you require sideshift AND telescopic forks, you will require either a fourth valve, or solenoid fitment
  • You will be operating and extended load centres, so must ensure your truck can safely operate

We are able to provide telescopic forks, and can help with any queries you may have.

Please see below for a video showing telescopic forks on a forklift truck in action.
