Powerful and Tough, the CartMover™ XR Safely Moves Your Heaviest Loads

Built on the proven CartMover™ design platform and now with a 20,000+ lb. capacity*, the NEW CartMover™ XR is Appleton’s most powerful and flexible CartMover™. The CartMover™ XR introduces features that increase productivity and ensure worker safety wherever you need to move heavy loads on wheels. With an improved, extreme-duty lifting platform and frame, the CartMover™ XR delivers an enhanced ergonomic design that increases worker safety and a huge 4-inch lift height that allows for moving a wider-than-ever variety of carts over a greater range of surfaces. Paired with the long-life, easy-to-change Lithium Iron Phosphate modular battery, the highly-maneuverable, CartMover™ XR is as easy-to-use as a pallet jack – just far more powerful and useful.

“The new CartMover™ XR offers increased durability and power that will solve your toughest cart handling challenges. The new, bigger lifting range means the CartMover™XR can accommodate almost any cart type or configuration without the need to change tooling even when you use different carts in a single facility. The high-visibility body allows operators to easily spot the CartMover™ XR, while the ergonomic design allows for safe and comfortable operation for all of your operators. Finally, our new Lithium Iron Phosphate battery delivers quicker charging and larger capacities, which means more power for a longer period of time!” - Matt Spang, Director of Sales, Appleton

The CartMover™ XR is also highly customizable to solve specific material handling challenges. If it moves on wheels or casters, the CartMover™ XR will move it safely and efficiently.
