Proto-Vest Sideshot II Dryer

The Sideshot II is a touch-free modular dryer that can be used in conjunction with any of our extensive line of products. Its double-finned bag design targets the windows, doors, fenders, and tires of the vehicle to deliver pinpoint drying precision. With (1) 30 hp blower, The Sideshot II requires little maintenance and functions effortlessly at high volume conveyor speeds.

Features / Benefits


Patented Touchless Design:

Pressurized air flows through a patented bag which directs air to the vehicle’s horizontal and vertical surface. The Sideshot II’s primary function is to dry the windows, doors, fenders and tires of the vehicle. Additionally, the double-finned bag design allows for drying of the vehicle’s front and rear surfaces without touching. It even extracts water from under moldings.

Low Maintenance:

Other than the blower/motor assembly, there are no moving parts to wear-out or break down.
(Please note that Proto-Vest recommends routine maintenance in order to maximize product life.)

Line Speed Efficiency:

When packaged with specific Proto-Vest drying systems, the Sideshot II can assist in providing a 95% dry car at line speeds up to 120+ cars per hour. Additionally, this system can aid in reducing in labor costs.

Compact / Modular design:

This equipment requires minimal floor space as a stand alone or supplemental dryer.

The AirGate® is a valuable option that not only reduces horsepower, but also prolongs the live of your dryer’s motor. The AirGate® eliminates the ramp-up time between vehicles lowering your electricity use without affecting the performance of your Proto-Vest dryer system. The AirGate® is an option for any Proto-Vest dryer.

Silencer Package

The Proto-Vest Silencer Package is compatible with all of Proto-Vest dryers, enabling our systems to meet and exceed OSHA noise regulations. This technology reduces decibels generated by the impeller’s tip speed, rapid moving air being drawn into the blower assembly and discharged air from the blower.

Easy Install Motor Cover

Over time RO water can cause the outside of the dryer motor to look rusty. While this rust has no adverse effect on the motors performance, it can be an unpleasant sight in an otherwise clean car wash. The Easy Install Motor Cover offers the solution. In addition the cover also helps protect the motor from damage.

Proto-Pow Bag Cleaner

Proto-Pow, a biodegradable bag cleaner from Proto-Vest, effectively cleans the air delivery bags on all Proto-Vest dryers by removing dirt, wax, scum and lime deposits. It will improve both the appearance and longevity of your dryer.
