Telescopic hydraulic cylinders

Telescopic hydraulic cylinders

Telescopic hydraulic cylinders, also known as multistage or telescoping cylinders, feature multiple nested stages that extend and retract, providing an extended range of motion. These cylinders are widely used in applications where a long stroke is required but space is limited.

Key Features

Multistage Design

Telescopic hydraulic cylinders consist of multiple nested stages, each of which extends and retracts in sequence. This design allows for a longer stroke compared to traditional single-stage cylinders.

Compact retracted length

The telescopic design enables the cylinder to collapse to a compact length when fully retracted, making it well-suited for applications with space constraints.

Extended Stroke Length

These cylinders can achieve significantly longer stroke lengths than single-stage cylinders, providing extended reach and versatility in various applications.


The nested design contributes to space efficiency, making telescopic hydraulic cylinders suitable for equipment with limited mounting space.

Customizable Configurations

Manufacturers offer customization options for bore sizes, rod diameters, and the number of stages, allowing users to tailor the cylinder to the specific requirements of their application.


Telescopic hydraulic cylinders find application in a wide range of industries, including construction, material handling, and dump truck systems, where extended reach and compact retracted lengths are essential.

Increased Reach and Height

The telescopic design allows for extended reach, making these cylinders particularly useful in applications that require lifting, pushing, or pulling loads over an extended distance.

Adaptability to Various Mounting Positions

Telescopic cylinders can be mounted in various positions, providing flexibility in the design and integration of hydraulic systems into different types of machinery.

Smooth Operation

With proper design and maintenance, telescopic hydraulic cylinders can provide smooth and controlled operation throughout their extended range, ensuring precision and reliability.

Sealing Mechanisms

Each stage of the telescopic cylinder is equipped with sealing mechanisms to prevent hydraulic fluid leakage and maintain the integrity of the system.

Load Holding Capability

Telescopic cylinders are designed to have good load-holding capability, ensuring stability and safety when holding loads in extended positions.

Rugged Construction:

Given their usage in demanding applications, telescopic hydraulic cylinders are typically constructed from durable materials such as high-strength steel to withstand heavy loads and harsh operating conditions. In summary, telescopic hydraulic cylinders offer an extended stroke length while maintaining a compact retracted length, making them valuable in applications where space is limited, and a longer reach is necessary. Their versatility, customization options, and ability to provide controlled and smooth operation make them essential components in various hydraulic systems.
