Double E Group has released a new roll pusher model under the Appleton brand.

Powered by a lithium iron phosphate battery for long use, the RollMover RX is smaller and lighter than its predecessor making it easier to handle and manoeuvre but also offering a 35% increase in torque.

The roll pusher is capable of moving 8,000 lb. (3.6 T) loads across a flat floor.

“The RollMover RX further expands Appleton's lithium iron phosphate RollMover offering in an overall package that is at least 20% smaller and lighter than all prior models,” says Appleton general manager Eric Quandt.

“The RX model was designed with operator ergonomics, facility space restrictions, and increased productivity in mind resulting in our easiest to use RollMover product to date.”
