This is a pedal powered washing machine developed by a team of volunteers at Mayapedal. The design is simple to build, maintain, and operate.
Throughout Guatemala and the developing world, laundry is still largely done by hand. This is a very time consuming process. The pedal washing machine provides an alternative to hand washing or expensive and inefficient electric machines.
Mayapedal is a Guatemalan NGO dedicated to support the basic family economy, through the design and distribution of bicycle machines, providing an efficient alternative for the rural development of Guatemala.
