Ultra-narrow telescopic forks use a single cylinder for each tine and are ideal for handling beverage. Their width allows these telescopic forks to be used on multi-pallet handlers for lifting one, two or even four pallets. This does not just cut down on the time needed for (un)loading, it also produces substantial savings on fuel.

KOOI®-Multi-Pallet Handling application?
KOOI®-Multi-Pallet Handling is used in all kind of industries but most frequently in the beverage industries handling beer, soft drinks, mineral water etc. Standard pallet handlers are fitted with standard forks and are able to lift only one or two pallets next to each other. When adapting telescopic forks the pallet handlers have the possibility to (un)load trucks with two pallets at the same time from one side, or even lift four pallets at the same time.
Features and options
- 35% reduce of internal transport costs
- Clever design means the outer tubes no longer contact the lower pallet timbers.
- Very small blade section makes it possible to handle just one pallet.
- Standard capacities available to handle pallet loads with a weight of ± 925 kg.
- Handling one, two or four pallets at the same time.
- Considerable improvement of (un)loading-time of trucks.
- Can be connected onto all kinds of different branches.
- No need for separate long forks for one sided loading/unloading
Fast, efficient pallet handling.
Logistics is often all about moving pallets quickly, efficiently and safely. Although not always feasible due to the weight and the type of product, customers will often want to be able to move as many pallets as possible in one go. One way of achieving this aim is by using a “Multiple Load Handler” The pallets sit alongside each other on the forks allowing them to be moved around in a warehouse or loaded onto or unloaded off lorries two at a time. Even greater efficiency can be achieved by fitting the “Single-Double Pallet Handler” with hydraulic reach forks (KOOI®ReachForks). These narrow telescopic forks can be extended hydraulically or manually so that pallets can be picked up in tandem. This means you can move two pallets side by side when the reach forks are retracted and four pallets when the reach forks are extended, depending on the configuration. “KOOI®Forks” comply with all safety standards, such as ISO 13284 for fork arm extensions and telescopic fork arms.
Single-Double Pallet Handler applications.
“Single-Double Handlers” with telescopic forks are frequently used not only in places such as beverages/soft drinks distribution warehouses but also where beverages, beer and soft drinks are produced and large numbers of pallets are handled.
Wherever several different pallet sizes are in use, the “Pallet Handler” can be fitted with extension forks. Although extension forks are still used to pick up pallets one at a time, they can handle various pallet lengths. For instance, if standard 1100 mm forks are used to move a 1000 mm pallet, the fork ends will protrude by 100 mm and could easily cause expensive damage. If the pallet measures 1200 mm, it will not be fully supported, resulting in stability issues during handling. The KOOI®ReachControl makes it possible to programme several different pallet sizes.
The best “Multiple Pallet Handler”
Although we don’t manufacture “Single Doubles”, most of our importers are able to supply the right combinations.
For example, these dealers can offer “Pallet Handlers” capable of carrying two pallets side by side and two pallets in tandem. This means that the forklift truck (or AGV) can carry four pallets at a time. This combination allows the loading or unloading of lorries from one side. Combining a forklift truck with a Multiple Load Handler + ReachForks makes the forklift truck larger, which often reduces the unobstructed view to an extent. The fact that the forklift truck isn’t forced to keep driving around the lorry, has a positive effect on overall safety as well as allowing faster loading and unloading. A “Single-Double Attachment” with KOOI®ReachForks is an investment that quickly pays off.
