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.

The Sidewinder physically fits / attaches well to my Piper Saratoga (PA-32R-301T). It has good power and operates well. However it is short and requires you to work / maneuver closes to the prop and under the nose, particularly when backing the plane up. Not sure only used it a few times. Not sure if I'm going to order an extension yet.
The tugs works great. The issue I encountered was failure of the supplied Milwaukee drill trigger switch after 3 uses. Redline says this is a known ongoing issue with these drills but they continue to sell them. I was left on my own to deal with Milwaukee and get the drill repaired.
