Each Sidewinder comes with a charger and battery. Extra batteries are available for purchase, but not required. 220V Chargers are also available for customers living in areas that have 220V outlets such as Europe or Australia; but again, they are not required as a 110V charger is included. A Milwaukee canvas construction bag is also available for purchase, but not included.
Powerful and portable, the Sidewinder will forever change the way you move your aircraft. Powered by Milwaukee’s top of the line 28V power unit with a long-lasting, lithium ion battery pack, Sidewinder weighs less than 22 pounds, collapses to 27″ and stows easily in your baggage compartment. Made in the USA using 4130 Chromoly material.

This is an awesome product. It is certainly heavy at 22 lbs. and thus not for everyone, but it makes it possible to move a Beech 58P Baron effortlessly out of hanger and back into the hanger when there is no lineman available. I would recommend this wonderful accessory for most. One key point. It is essential that you get the anti torque arm on the sidewinder fully attached to the attach point for the tow bar on the front gear and also the wheel adapter fully inserted into the front gear wheel axle. Otherwise you will be very disappointed in the outcome.. Watch the video at the following link https://vimeo.com/32924330 , it really is that easy.
I had no idea what I was missing. this thing is exceptional.
Worked perfectly on Bonanza. Great product right out of the box. Solid....seems well-designed and made. Moved plane easily, can vary speed and direction. Very intuitive and simple to use. What an improvement over the old gas-powered tugs, my own straining, asking others of help. Folds and fits easily in baggage area, weighs 24 lbs., so it won't jack too much with you W&B. I love it. Downsides itself gets 5 stars, but overall experience gets 4 stars. Downsides outweighed by the product itself. No instruction manual, so had to figure it out. Website has video showing its use on a Piper, noting the connection between this tug and the plane is similar but significantly different between the Piper and Beechcraft. Took a few tries before I figured it out. Works well. Glad I have it. Communications with the company left a little to be desired...felt like I was bothering them a bit with 2 routine questions. Delivery delayed.
SUPER- well-constructed. Has a beefiness and hefty that lets you know it ain’t here to mess around. Simple: Like you and I would make if we had the skill. The only thing I could knock it for is the grab-handle (and I’m gonna butcher trying to describe this) on the “middle” piece under the drill could kinda cut into your hand if you were gonna carry it for a mile. I had to run to the plane when it showed up, even though I had nowhere to go, and it moves my chunky V-tail just fine.
Works very well. Took a little sanding and adjusting , but less than 30 minutes total.
Great tug would buy again
This is an awesome piece of equipment. Powerful and portable. I highly recommend it.
This product is genius!! I love mine.
