Operating Instructions and Parts Manual
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I start my pressure washer?
1. Make sure you have gas and oil in the engine. The engine does not come with oil.
2. Turn the water on, then squeeze the trigger on the gun to make sure the water will flow smoothly out of the tip.
3. Put the engine throttle control fully to the left, in the “Fast/Start” position. Set the shut off switch to “ON.”
4. Set the choke fully to the left. Set the fuel valve lever fully to the right in the “ON” position.
5. Pull the trigger (to relieve any back pressure in the pump) while pulling the starter cord.
What type of oil do I use?
Engine: The engine DOES NOT COME FILLED WITH OIL. See Page 10 for engine oil types and quantities.
Pump:
The pump comes filled with the correct amount of oil and should not need changing or filling. Refer to Pages 9 and 10 of
this manual for oil changing instructions, oil types and quantities.
Why don’t I have any water pressure?
• Is the water hose attached to the pressure washer?
• Is the water turned on?
• Check for any kinks, leaks, or blockage in the hoses, fittings, or the nozzle.
• Is the quick connect tip in place? (See Page 5 and 6).
• Is the inlet filter screen free of debris? Check and remove debris if needed.
How do I get high pressure?
• Use any color tip except black. The black tip is only used for low pressure detergent application.
How do I get the soap suction to work?
1. Connect the clear plastic chemical suction tube to the plastic hose barb on pump, insert the other end into your detergent.
2. Install the black spray tip to apply low pressure detergent.
Why doesn’t the pressure washer apply detergents with high pressure?
Detergents “bounce” off cleaning surfaces as fast as they are applied. The pressure washer’s features allow for a detergent to be
drawn while in low pressure mode only. By applying detergent at low pressure, the effect of “bouncing” is reduced. Also, detergents
are only effective when time is allowed for them to work on the surface of whatever is being cleaned. After applying the detergent,
wait 1-3 minutes while it works, and then proceed to rinse the surface with high pressure.
What maintenance do I need to perform on my pressure washer?
1. After turning off the pressure washer and the water, depressurize the hose by triggering the gun.
2. Remove the garden hose and high pressure hose from the pump.
3. Pull the start rope slowly five times to purge water from the pump. This will help protect the pump from damage.
4. Do not store your pressure washer in an area where the temperature will drop below 32˚ F.
5. Follow proper storage and winterizing instructions found on pages 8 and 9.
What do I do if I’m missing a part?
Call Campbell Hausfeld at 1-800-330-0712 and we will promptly replace your missing parts. DO NOT RETURN THE PRESSURE
WASHER TO THE RETAILER!

Operation
1. Surface Preparation
1. Check engine oil levels. Add oil as
necessary.
The following cleaning procedure will
help you organize your cleaning task
and ensures that you will achieve the
best results in the shortest amount of
time. Remember to use the spraying /
cleaning techniques mentioned in the
following section.
2. Check fuel level. Add unleaded
gasoline (rated 86 octane or higher) as
required.
Before starting a pressure washer
cleaning job, prepare the surface you
intend to clean. Clear furniture from
the area and make sure that all
windows and doors are closed tightly.
Also, protect all plants and trees near
the cleaning area with a drop cloth. A
covering ensures that your plants won’t
be sprayed by the detergents.
2. Start Up
ALWAYS use this start up procedure to
ensure that the unit is started safely and
properly.
If water has frozen
in the pressure
washer, thaw the pressure washer in a
warm room before starting. DO NOT
pour hot water on or into the pump;
internal parts will be damaged.
www.chpower.com
DO NOT refuel a hot
engine. Refueling a
hot engine could cause a fire. Use only
fresh, clean regular or unleaded
gasoline. Close the fuel shutoff valve
during refueling.
3. Attach a garden hose to the inlet side
of the pump and connect it to the
water supply. Use a hose with an
internal diameter (I.D.) of 5/8 in. (1.58
cm) and a length of 50 ft. (15 m) or less.
Never run the unit
dry. Be sure the
water supply is completely turned on
before operating the unit.
5. Trigger the gun until water sprays
from the tip indicating that all air is
purged from the system. Set the
trigger safety latch.
6. Open the fuel shutoff valve by
turning the lever to the right/“ON”
position. Close the choke (if the
engine is cold) by moving the choke
lever fully to the left. Move the
throttle fully to the left to the “Run”
or “Rabbit” position. Turn the
ON/OFF swirch to the “ON” position.
Some local
plumbing codes
require backflow prevention when
connecting to a fresh water supply.
Install a backflow preventer upstream
from the pump if necessary.
a. If inlet water pressure is over 100
psi, install a regulating water valve
at the garden hose connection.
b. Do not exceed 100˚ F (38˚ C) inlet
water temperature.
NOTE: The inlet water supply must have a
minimum flow rate of 5 gpm (19 lpm).
4. Turn the water supply ON.
Figure 10 - Throttle

PW2770, PW3270, and PW4070
Operation (Continued)
7. Start the engine: Unlock the trigger
safety latch on the gun. Grasp the
starter rope and brace one foot on the
chassis. While squeezing the trigger on
the gun, pull the starter rope rapidly
and firmly. Continue holding the rope
as it returns. Repeat these steps until
the engine starts.
When pulling the
starter rope, make
sure to keep your hand and arm clear
of the engine and cart components.
Never let the starter
rope return by itself.
Doing so could jam the recoil system.
PRESSURE ADJUSTMENT
Please refer to your CAT pump manual
for specific pressure adjustment details.
ADJUSTING THE SPRAY FAN ANGLE
Five quick connect tips are included
with this pressure washer. The tips
have a range of spray fan angles,
ranging from 0°, narrow high impact,
to a 65° wide fan spray.
Pressure can also be adjusted by
moving closer or further away from the
cleaning surface and by adjusting the
spray fan angle as shown.
8. If the engine does not start after two
or three pulls or if the rope is hard to
pull, squeeze the gun trigger to
release the pressure that has built up
in the high pressure hose. Repeat
Steps 7 and 8 until the engine starts.
3. Initial High Pressure Rinse
Spray the cleaning surface with water to
clear off any dirt or grime that may have
collected on the surface. Doing so allows
the detergent to attack the deep down
dirt that has worked its way into the
cleaning surface.
After the engine starts, trigger the gun 3
to 5 times to get any trapped air out of
the system. After the spray becomes
constant, you may need to adjust the
pressure.

Figure 13 - Wide fan pattern
When spraying water against a surface,
you can generate maximum impact by
striking the surface head on. However,
this type of impact can cause dirt
particles to embed in the surface and
can prevent the desired cleaning action.
The optimum angle for spraying water
against a cleaning surface is 45 degrees.
Spray water against a surface at a 45
degree angle to achieve the most
beneficial impact force and to efficiently
remove debris.
Figure 14 - Optimum angle to cleaning
surface
HOW TO AVOID DAMAGING SURFACES
Damage to cleaning surfaces occurs
because the impact force of the water
exceeds the durability of the surface.
You can vary the impact force by
controlling the spray tip angle to the
cleaning surface and the distance from
the cleaning surface and by changing
the spray tip. NEVER use a narrow high
impact stream on a surface that is
susceptible to damage. Avoid spraying
windows with a narrow high impact
stream. Doing so may break the window.
The most sure way to avoid damaging
surfaces is to follow these steps:
1. Before triggering the gun, make
sure the quick connect tip you are
using is appropriate for the
application.
2. Place the spray tip approximately 45 feet (1,22-1,52 m) away from the
cleaning surface. Then hold the
lance and spray tip at a 45 degree
angle to the cleaning surface.
Trigger the gun.
3. Vary the fan pattern spray angle
and the distance to the cleaning
surface until optimum cleaning
efficiency is achieved without
damaging the surface.
DISTANCE FROM CLEANING SURFACE
The distance between the spray tip and
the cleaning surface is another factor that
affects the impact force of the water. The
impact force of the water increases as the
tip is moved closer to the surface.

Operating Instructions and Parts Manual
Operation (Continued)
4. Detergent Application
NOTE: Use only detergents formulated
for pressure washers.Test detergent in an
inconspicuous area before use.
DETERGENTS
The use of detergents can dramatically
reduce cleaning time and assist in the
removal of difficult stains. Many
detergents are customized for pressure
washer use on specific cleaning tasks.
Pressure washer detergents are as thick
as water. Using thicker detergents –
like dish soap – will clog the chemical
injection system and prevent the
application of the detergent.
Once applied to a cleaning surface,
detergents take time to break down dirt
and grime. Detergents work best when
applied at low pressure.
You can effectively clean surfaces by
combining the chemical action of
detergents with high pressure rinses. On
vertical surfaces, apply the detergent
starting at the bottom and work your
way upward. This method prevents the
detergent from sliding down and causing
streaks. Begin high pressure rinsing at the
bottom and work your way upward. On
particularly tough stains, use a brush in
combination with detergents and high
pressure rinsing.
1. Follow manufacturer’s label
directions for mixing correct
concentrations of soap/detergents.
The soap detergent to water ration
through the pump is approximately
10% (1 to 10).
2. Insert the filter end of the clear
plastic detergent tube into the
detergent container.
3. Use the BLACK 65° quick connect
spray tip.
4. Adjust the detergent injection flow
by turning the collar of the injector.
Turning collar clockwise increases
detergent flow.
the dirt and grime. Use a brush to
lightly scrub heavily soiled areas.
NEVER allow the detergent to dry on
the cleaning surface.
2. To rinse: replace black 65° spray tip
with another color tip.
8. Shutdown
Never replace quick
connect tip when gun
is triggered. Always engage trigger lock
on gun before removing or installing
quick connect tips.
1. Be sure all detergent is flushed from
system.
3. After using detergents, flush the
suction system by placing the
detergent suction tube into a bucket
of clean water and spraying with the
black spray tip.
5. Cleaning Power
The easiest way to regulate the
cleaning power of your pressure washer
is by changing the distance from the
surface you are cleaning. Begin spraying
with a wide fan pattern while standing
several feet from the surface. Slowly
move closer to the object you are
cleaning, adjusting the spray pattern as
necessary, until you find the most
effective cleaning technique.
NOTE: The unit also has a pressure
adjustment knob on the pump that can
adjust the pressure.
6. Final Rinse
The final rinse should start at the bottom
and work upward. Make sure that you
thoroughly rinse the surface and that you
remove all detergent.
7. Pressure Relief Procedure
To reduce the risk of bodily injury or
property damage, always follow this
procedure whenever spraying is
stopped, when work is completed, and
before checking or repairing any part
of the system.
1. Engage the trigger safety latch.
2. Turn the unit off.
GENERAL CLEANING TIPS
3. Shut off the water supply.
1. Apply the detergent so that it
thoroughly covers the cleaning
surface. Apply the detergent from
bottom to top to prevent the
detergent from sliding down and
streaking. Wait a couple of minutes
for the detergent to break down
4. Disengage the trigger safety latch and
trigger the gun to relieve pressure.
www.chpower.com
7. Before overnight storage, long term
storage, or transporting unit,
disconnect the water supply and turn
off the fuel supply valve.
5. Re-engage the trigger safety latch.
6. When checking or repairing unit,
remove the ignition cable from the
spark plug.
