Hydraulic Fork Extensions

Double Deep Fork Extensions are hydraulic fork extensions often used on Reach Trucks which allow the operator to operate in racking that has been designed for double deep stacking. This means that two pallet racks are placed behind each other without an aisle between them allowing smaller warehouses to have greater pallet density. Hydraulic fork extensions are also refereed to as Kooi Forks within the industry.
