Appleton Reports Benefits of Material Handling Unit

NEENAH, WI | Appleton Mfg. Division reports its battery-powered RollMover is well suited for increasing productivity and ensuring worker safety whenever heavy loads need to be moved. 

The material handler is called ideal for moving large master rolls of paper, plastic, film, foil, fabric, tissue, towel, nonwovens, or fiberglass mat, as well as large trucks or chassis. With the power to move loads ranging from 100 lbs to more than 100,000 lbs, the unit increases productivity by preventing the need to wait for special tow trucks or moving machinery. Although featuring a durable steel frame, it is said to be lightweight and compact, easy to use, and simple to store.

Company says this material handler prevents on-site injuries caused by pushing heavy loads, thus reducing risk and liability, adding that the RollMover increases productivity and safety by removing the need for air hoses, which have length limitations and can be a trip hazard on the work floor.

The product comes in four different models:

  • Standard Duty (SD) RollMover can safely move loads to 6,500 lbs
  • Heavy Duty (HD) model can manage larger loads reaching 50,000 lbs plus
  • Extra Heavy Duty (XHD) model can manage larger loads reaching 100,000 lbs plus.
  • HD Large Roller (HDLR) model offers all the power and durability of the HD model along with a large, contoured drive wheel designed for damage-free moving of soft material rolls, including tissue and nonwovens.
