Discipline: Professional Concept

Anyone who has moved home with a washing machine will painfully recall the backbreaking process of moving it up and down stairs. This innovative design replaces the cement balancing weight with two water tanks, which can be automatically filled and emptied by the machine. The result is environmentally friendly, energy-saving, and a great relief for sore backs.
