I installed these UW Unimac washers well over 20 years ago. We have been servicing this account ever since.
The customer had called me to come in and find the water leak under the drum. Turns out the drum seal finally had wore out. We quoted a new UW Unimac and the repair. They opted to repair not because of the lower cost but because the washer is still in phenomenal condition. In almost all cases a washer over 20 years old running 10 hours daily 365 days a year, IT IS DONE. But when it comes to the UW it’ll just carry on. A true industrial washer in a commercial world. Now my son’s were sent up to install new bearings and a seal kit.
It’s kind of cool to have a machine that you installed and have your sons servicing it many years later. When I installed these units my boys were 9 and 10 years old. Now their doing a major overhaul on it. I think that’s pretty cool, and of course I’m pretty proud!
