What Cater-Wash customers have to say…


Robert Whitaker: “We really struggled to find a large durable washing machine for our stables at a reasonable price. We are really impressed with our purchase from Caterkwik, it ticks all the boxes and I highly recommend for equestrian use.”

Margret Ainge: “The machine does exactly what it says in the description. I use it to wash all my animal beds, blankets etc. It has a very generous door opening so there is no problem getting a double duvet or large blanket into the drum. There is no vibration from the machine even when it is on its fasted spin – very impressive”

Eventerprise Equestrian: “Weighing up all the options, Cater-Wash meant best value for money I could find…Amazing clean and spins so well the rugs take less time to dry. Thank you all”

Runshaw: “I love my washing machine! It’s huge! use it for all my horse rugs, numnahs etc. It’s so quiet and the array of programmes is almost endless. There are different programmes for how dirty things are and for different types of dirt. It has a really good choice of spin speeds and wash temperatures too. I usually spend upwards of £500 annually having rugs washed and re proofed. Now I can get them done overnight. One of the best things I have invested in for my yard.”

“I think that this washing machine one of the best machine that have used in last 40 years…..thanks”
