Belt drive or chain drive?

  • The telescopic fork with a chain drive has a higher total height, because it needs a gearbox.

  • The telescopic fork with a chain is limited to a speed of max. 120 m/min.

  • The self weight is higher of a telescopic fork with chain drive.

  • The belt has no elongation instead of the chain.

When would you need to use a chain drive version instead of belt drive?

  • In cold storage applications

  • In aggressive environments


  • Distribution centers

  • Production automation

  • Parts logistic centers

  • E-commerce & omi-channel

  • General merchandise

  • 3PL (Third Party Logistics)
