CLA Connect is open to Coin Laundry Association members and non-members and is a place for laundry professionals to ask questions and share their expertise. We'll leave the PlanetLaundry Bulletin Board in place so that past conversations can be accessed through the threads below.
In the 1970s, we had a single 25# washer in the back of one of our laundromats. It was the Big Boy washer although, for the life of me, I cannot recall the actual brand name on it. That washer would be about equal to a 40# washer today.
Washer sizes are still increasing and we'll have to come up with labels to fit these monster washers like the 125# models.
