An affordable alternative to hydraulic forks are the patented manual extendable forks. These forks are ideal for companies with limited budgets or those which do not have an extra hydraulic function available on their lift trucks.
MANUAL KOOI-REACHFORKS® are also ideal for applications with very infrequent need for alternative fork lengths. A fingertip release lever unlocks the outer fork allowing the operator to easily position it in the extended or retracted position. The manner of adjusting the outer sleeve is highly innovative. It simply involves moving a pin (which also serves as a grease nipple) sideways, causing the locker to be retracted. As soon as the locker is disengaged, the outer sleeve can be moved using the other hand until the locker engages again at the different length. Ideal for diffrent pallet sizes and dual pallet handling.
- Remain mounted on the forklift truck so they are always available for the driver.
- Lightweight construction that is extended easily to a variety of lengths.
- Innovative outer forks which cannot catch tensioning straps.
- Eliminate safety risks and inconveniences typically associated with loose fork extensions (outer sleeves).
- Closed locking slots protect the locking pin.
- Fast extension in just one simple movement by moving a pin.
- No hydraulic parts.
- Low maintenance costs.
- No loose parts.
THE MECHANICAL IN-BETWEEN SOLUTION
Manual extendable forks stay on the forklift truck permanently, saving time, space and money compared to traditional fork extensions (outersleeves). This mechanical option is lower in cost than the hydraulic fork which makes it ideal for low usage application.
