NEENAH, Wis. — December 16, 2011 — Appleton Mfg. Division’s battery-powered RollMover™ is perfect
for increasing productivity and ensuring worker safety whenever heavy loads need to be moved. The
material handler is ideal for moving large master rolls of: paper, fabric, tissue, towel,
other paper, nonwovens, or fiberglass mat, as well as large trucks or chassis. With the power
to move loads ranging from 100 lbs to over 50,000 lbs, the RollMover™ increases productivity by
preventing the need to wait for special tow trucks or moving machinery. Although featuring a
durable steel frame, the RollMover™ is lightweight and compact, easy to use and simple to store.
This versatile material handler prevents on-site injuries caused by pushing heavy loads, thus
reducing risk and liability. The RollMover™ also 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 RollMover™ comes in three different models designed to cover all needs and scenarios. The
Standard Duty (SD) RollMover™ can safely move loads up to 6,500 pounds, while the Heavy Duty (HD)
model can manage larger loads reaching 50,000 pounds plus. The HD Large Roller 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.
