The CartMover XR is a Next-Generation Material Handler

Built on the proven CartMover design and with a 20,000 lb. capacity* the new CartMover XR features a number of new enhancements that increase productivity and ensure worker safety wherever heavy loads on wheels need to be moved. Among the new features are an enhanced ergonomic design that increases worker safety, a 4-inch lift range that allows for moving carts over a greater range of surfaces and transitions, a long-life Lithium Iron Phosphate, easy-to-change modular battery with on-board analytics. Portable and highly-maneuverable, the new CartMover XR is as easy-to-use as a pallet jack – just far more powerful.

“The New CartMover XR offers additional lifting range, allowing for a larger variety of cart configurations with no connection tooling changes required by the operator. The extend range also offers the ability to handle larger transitions, be it ramps, inclines or cracks in the floor.  The high visibility allows for operators to easily spot the CartMover XR, while the ergonomic design allows for easy use.  The new Lithium Iron Phosphate battery provides a larger capacity, and more efficient energy flow - more power for a longer period of time! The onboard analytics allows for operators and maintenance personnel to determine the battery state of charge.” - Matt Spang, CartMover Product Manager

“We are very pleased to be offering the new Cart Mover XR.  We anticipate this new innovation will offer improved performance to a great number of our customers.   This understanding of customer and market needs and designing solutions has been the cornerstone of our success at Appleton Manufacturing – a Double E Company.” - Michael Campbell General Manager of Appleton Manufacturing 

Excellent for both long-haul moves, and short cell manufacturing moves, the CartMover XR is ideal for most manufacturing. The CartMover XR fits most standard carts and can be equipped with a variety of engineered or custom hitches to connect securely to various carts, bins, vehicles or other wheeled loads. The CartMover XR is customizable to solve specific material handling challenges.
