Telescopic Cylinders


Telescopic cylinders feature a multi-stage rod built of a series of nested steel tubes of progressively smaller diameter. This special design of hydraulic cylinder provides exceptional travel from a highly compact retracted length. Typically the collapsed length of a telescopic cylinder is 20% to 40% of the fully extended length, depending on the number of stages.

The ability to extend from a minimal retracted size makes Anker Holth Telescopic Cylinders ideal for applications where space constraints inhibit the use of conventional single-stage cylinders.
