Continental debuts 200 G-force MG-Series Washers

Oshkosh, Wis.-- Continental Girbau recently unleashed the new MG-Series hard-mount washer-extractors, available in 40- and 55-pound capacities. Continental’s highest performing hard-mount washers, MG-Series feature up to 200 G-force extract speeds, superior energyefficiency, advanced programmability, and unrivaled durability.

“MG-Series Washers are engineered to curb utility costs and boost profits at vended laundries,” said Continental Vice President of Sales Joel Jorgensen. “They mimic our highperformance ExpressWash freestanding washers, with many of the same components and programmability, which has resulted in a higher performance hard-mount machine with great energy-efficiency. With the new MG-Series line, Continental allows storeowners to step into the highest performing washers, according to their unique needs.”

In addition to the new 200 G-force MG Series hard-mount line, Continental offers a full array of washers for vended laundries, including the unmatched ExpressWash freestanding line with extract speeds of up to 381 G-force; the 141 G-force M-Series hard-mount line; and the 131 G-force L-Series hard-mount line. By comparison, many other hard-mount washers on the market only produce 70 to 90 G-force extract, according to Jorgensen.

By generating more than double the G-force of many hard-mount washers, MG-Series Washers remove considerably more water from each load. This reduces dry-time and natural gas consumption – cutting utility costs and the time it takes customers to complete laundry. “In the end, MG-Series Washers are designed to improve customer turnover and bottom-line profits,” said Jorgensen.

Moreover, MG-Series Washers are stingy on water thanks to exclusive features and a sump-less design. Engineered without a sump – a water containment area at the base of the washer – MG-Series Washers save up to three gallons of water with each fill when compared to machines equipped with an outer tub sump. This cuts water-usage and water-heating costs. With AquaFall™, an exclusive system that releases water into the drum through holes in the drum lifters, MG-Series Washers also boast superior load saturation, chemical penetration and rinsing – adding up to a superior clean!

Utilizing the advanced and proven Coin Control, storeowners are in the driver’s seat. Each MG-Series Washer features four modifiable programs – Superwash, Hot, Warm and Cold. Storeowners can easily program a variety of variables for improved efficiency, including G-force extract, mechanical action, wash temperature (by degree), water levels and wash/rinse/extract time in each phase. The control’s flexibility allows multi-level vend pricing on the same machine depending on the wash program selected, time of day, or day of the week.

Simplifying life for customers, MG-Series Washers incorporate a detergent dispenser with up to four compartments – one for powder, one for optional pre-wash and two for liquid products. A powerful compartment flushing system reduces maintenance by thoroughly cleaning each compartment after every customer cycle.

And, like all Continental products, MG-Series Washers are designed for durability and longevity. They feature inner and outer drums made of AISI-304 stainless steel, oversized bearings and a quality sealing system. The machine components are engineered to use as few welds as possible – delivering unrivaled strength. The ergonomically designed oversized door allows for easy loading and unloading.

Allowing vended laundries to install more machines in the same area, the MG-Series line occupies less space than other hard-mount washers on the market, with a 40-pound model footprint that is 20 percent smaller than most other similarly sized machines, and 55-pound model that is typically smaller in dimension and features a greater basket capacity than most 50-pound machines on the market.

MG-Series hard-mount washer-extractors are backed by an industry-leading 5/3-year factory warranty.
