Stretch Wrapper Buying Guide

A stretch wrap machine really increases the number of pallets you can wrap an hour. They can also be one of the priciest investments you’ll make in your packaging line. The general rule is, “the more you spend, the better you’ll get”, but there are always exceptions to that rule. You can get a great machine at every price level and for every need.
