Most of the hits for 'telescoping forks' refer to special narrow-aisle forklift trucks, so I would hesitate using the term in a general sense.

Extension / extendable / extended are all more frequent than 'extending'.

Asker: Thanks for responding John. I find telescopic forks better. Will however need to wait for a day before grading the answers


Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Kcda: Sounds appropriate but within the context maybe "extendible/extended forks" could perform better? Otherwise it is fully correct 1:1 with Ausschubgabel. I heard of telescopic forks as well. This could very well also qualify!
