A 90lb machine joins the Viking washer-extractor range, available from distributor Anglowest. At this size the machine will meet the needs of larger OPLs, in hotels, hospitals and nursing homes, as well as those of commercial laundries.

The GW90 is microprocessor-controlled and provides 20 fixed programs, plus further programmable options. It also meets health-service guidelines for sterile wash and sluice facilities.

The new machine can process 60 to 65 single cotton sheets in a 40 minute wash.

It is CE approved and carries American ETL approval and the German GS stamp. It can be leased for £60 a week over a period of 5 years.
