Telescopic Forks: How to Select the Right Model for Your Needs

Telescopic forks are an essential tool for material handling in various industries, providing operators with the flexibility to handle different pallet sizes or transport two pallets at a time and navigate double-deep pallet racking. When it comes to selecting the right telescopic fork model for your specific needs, there are several factors to consider. In this article, we will explore the key considerations for choosing the most suitable telescopic forks and how Wontonne telescopic forks can increase efficiency in your material handling operations.


1. Load Capacity

One of the primary considerations when selecting a telescopic fork model is the load capacity it can handle. Different models are designed to support varying weight capacities, so it’s crucial to assess the heaviest loads you will handle and choose telescopic forks that can accommodate those weights.


Considering the size range of the pallets or doule-deep racks you will work with, as telescopic forks come in different lengths and differnt strokes to accommodate various pallet sizes and double-deep rack sizes.


Wontonne telescopic forks are designed to provide operators with the ability to extend fork lengths from the carriage, allowing for the efficient handling of different pallet types. With their adjustable length capabilities, Wontonne telescopic forks offer versatility in managing a wide range of loads, making them a valuable asset for material handling operations.

3.Compatibility with Equipment

When selecting a telescopic fork model, it’s essential to ensure that it is compatible with your existing material handling equipment. Whether you are using a forklift, reach truck, or other types of industrial vehicles, the telescopic forks need to be compatible with the equipment’s specifications. Consider factors such as fork carriage dimensions, mounting options, and attachment methods to ensure seamless integration with your equipment.

Wontonne telescopic forks are designed to be compatible with a variety of material handling equipment, providing operators with the flexibility to use them across different vehicles. This compatibility enhances operational efficiency and allows for the seamless transition between handling various loads with different equipment.

4.Operational Flexibility

The ability to adapt to different handling scenarios and operational requirements is a key consideration when selecting telescopic forks. Look for models that offer operational flexibility, except for the ability to handle double-deep pallet racking, accommodate various pallet types, and provide smooth and precise adjustments for different load sizes, Wontone can also customize according to differnt operation needs.

The combinations with a fork positioner allows operator to carry up to 4 pallets at a time, which greatly improves the loading and unloading efficiency of the truck and trains.

Telescopic forks are ideal for one-side loading and unloading by counterbalanced forklift trucks. These integrated double-cylinder telescopic forks are more rugged than integrated one-cylinder telescopic forks, as they are often used under more demanding conditions. Telescopic forks are fitted with an integrated synchronization system allowing forks to be extended and retracted in unison.

Palletstops are intended to stop the forks protruding too far through the pallet, thus preventing damage to goods and pallets standing behind.


The load back rest supports the load and moves forward with the outer fork. It is bolted onto the palletstops but still allows the distance between the forks to be changed.
