The SIDEWINDER® 4 is part of a robust line of stretch wrapping equipment designed to maximize stretch film usage while ensuring the very best load unitization. All ARPAC STRETCH™ equipment is constructed with heavy gauge reinforced structural steel and finished with non-corrosive Steel-It paint, guaranteeing years of reliable wrapping. The SIDEWINDER® 4 is manufactured in the USA and sold through our nationwide distribution network.

The SIDEWINDER® 4 is a heavy-duty semi-automatic stretch wrapper with 4,000 lb. capacity. This model is available with a high profile turntable for forklift loading, and low profile turntable for pallet-jack loading.

The SIDEWINDER® 4 can be customized with extended towers for taller loads, and split frames for odd-sized larger loads. This system is also available with a 30" film carriage and dual turntables for greater throughput, cold and freezer packs for reliable operation in extremely harsh temperatures, and a pneumatic roping device for additional load support. For more efficiency, an Automatic Film Tear Device (AFTD) tears the film automatically at the end of the wrapping cycle.
