Horse rugs and pet blankets as you well know – come in all shapes and sizes, commercial laundry machines are sized in kilograms sizes starting from 5kg to 50kg. To make sure you order the right machine for your requirement it’s best to weigh your products first, the most popular size for vets and small animal bedding would be a 7kg to 10kg and for horse rugs a 10kg to 23kg drum load size.
We have been involved with many equine laundry projects and our opinion is that horse rugs are a product that can be very demanding to clean and it’s very important that the correct machines are used, many of my customers that have invested in buying an in- house laundry systems to process their own rugs – BEWARE! As soon as your friends and family find out you could end up cleaning more than you barging for. You may laugh but I can name many customers that have now realized the market for cleaning rugs and taken this opportunity to start their own equine laundry business. (Some of which are very successful).
