Twin Tub in action
I have just bought this little cutie from ebay and am duly impressed by its capabilities. Primarily plastic, it is ideal for our caravan tours. Weighing 13 klg it washes 3.2 kg of clothes and spins 2 kg at a time in the spin-dry tub, where it also rinces.
I am going to find this both practical and versatile. It performed well in its trials in my bathroom and while it needs 240W for washing and 120W for spinning I have the means to cope with this fortunately while touring.
That it has a spin tub is ideal for my needs. It runs quietly and while not as portable as the 'bucket' type of portable mini washing machine, at 13kg it is relatively light and portable enough for my needs.
