We removed a pair of huge Washex washers from a large hotel in OKC. One was a 180 lb machine and the other 230 lb. Both were from the 80s and weren't lacking in steel.
The machines, because they drained in the center, spanned a drain pit which made removal even more fun.
Because the hotel had filled in their loading dock the washers had to be taken out a side door. The larger machine needed its top cut off to fit.
The hotel went with Milnor washers and new dryers. This will allow them to bring laundry back in-house and save money.
