ImageThe newest cordless CartMover from Appleton Manufacturing is now available with a wide choice of hitch options. The compact, battery-powered CartMover is designed to safely and securely move heavy loads on wheels, such as parts carts, shipping carts, dumpsters, machine modules, product racks, stalled tow motors and more, says the company. Hitch options include a top-mount hitch, a base-front mount hitch, a trailer-style hitch, and posts and claw hitches in a variety of sizes. With a powerful gear-motor drive, the portable CartMover can move up to 20,000 pounds and batteries can be changed without tools in as little as 10 seconds, says the company. Battery life is also extended with a battery-cooling re-charger station.
