Telescoping Conveyor


Ashland's Telescoping Conveyors are durable, low maintenance products designed to reduce the time and effort required to hand load and unload trailers. Unlike expanding or flexible conveyors, the centerline distance between rollers remains unchanged at any extension. Also, each section is individually replaceable. There are two telescope conveyor models (telescopic roller conveyors and telescopic skatewheel conveyors) in three widths and five lengths with a range of elevations and slopes.

Ease of operation is one of the reasons warehouse managers prefer Ashland Telescoping Conveyors. Our unique design suspends the lower sections by ball bearings which glide inside the side channels of the section above.

The Legs are equipped with 5" diameter swivel casters. Casters with a diameter of 8" are available as an option. Ashland Telescopic Conveyors extend so easily that a 5 section unit with 3" slope per 10' will extend itself on a smooth floor. The package stop also serves as a handle to extend and retract the conveyor.

Durability is another reason our product is preferred. The main frame stringers are made from 7 ga. steel. All other steel parts are either 10 ga. or structural steel. The legs are secured in place with 1/2" heat treated bolts. Our customers have testified that units have fallen from the dock and were put back into service without any repair. Durability and weight are synonymous in telescoping conveyors. Compare the weight of our product with other brands.


To specify a telescoping conveyor you will need to know the following:
1. Overall length or number of 10' sections
2. High end (upper) elevation
3. Required slope or low elevation
4. Overall width
5. Model (skatewheel or roller)
6. 5" or 8" diameter casters
The elevation/slope tables will aid in the selection process. Please note the slope must be a whole number (1" through 6" per a 10' section). The slope may vary from section to section; however, the slope must be constant or increase as you descend through the sections. The slope cannot decrease.

Telescoping Conveyors ship fully assembled less the attachment of the transition sections and the safety stop bracket.

They must be shipped via a dedicated carrier.

  • Elevations not adjustable.
  • The Number in the model following the letter "T" refers to the number of sections. The following number refers to model A, B, C, or D which determins high and low elevations. The last number refers to the caster diameter.
  • Substituting 8" for 5" casters adds 3" to all heights except 6 section units.
  • Six section units are only available with 8" diameter conveyor casters.
