MSE-Forks BV is an approved factory supplier for most all major lift truck manufacturers including Toyota/Raymond/BT, Jungheinrich, Linde, Nissan, Stihl and more. Telescopic Kooi-ReachForks® are often fitted in place of pantograph reach mechanisms
for single or double-deep storage as they provide greater capacity retention, they do not hinder visibility and they cost less to maintain. The innovative telescopic forks are also fitted to common counterbalanced lift trucks converting them into reach trucks or providing the ability to load/unload flatbed trailers or rail cars from just one side, transport two pallets at once or to simply support variable load lengths. MSE also provides a complete range of pallet-less handling products which includes RollerForks®, a new Roll-Push-Pull attachment and Rollerized Tine Extenders - designed for the air cargo industry and military applications. These forks are becoming increasingly popular throughout the USA as well as the rest of the world.
