advise you to carefully read through this instruction
manual. Follow all instructions to minimize the risk
of injuries when using the machine.

It is strongly recommended that the electric supply to this machine should include a residual
current device (GFCI).
WARNING! High pressure jets
can be dangerous. Never direct
the water jet at persons, pets, live
electrical equipment or the machine itself.
The operator and anyone in the
immediate vicinity of the site of cleaning should
take action to protect themselves from being
struck by debris dislodged during operation. Wear
goggles during operation.

EN
WARNING! Always disconnect the plug from the
socket prior to maintenance or cleaning.
To ensure a long and problem free working life,
please take the following advice:
The machine should be stored in a frost-free
room!
Pump, hose and accessories should always be
emptied of water prior to storing as follows:
Wash out water hose, high pressure hose, spray
lance and accessories before mounting.
Clean the connectors of dust and sand.
Rinse the detergent spraying attachment after
use.

the machine run until no more water runs through
the spray handle.
3. Stop the machine, unplug and detach high pressure hose.
Any repair should always be made in an authorised
workshop with original spare parts.
4.1 Cleaning of nozzle
A clogging up in the nozzle causes a pump pressure which is too high. This is why cleaning is required immediately.
Should the machine by mistake be frozen, it will be
necessary to check it for damage.
NEVER START-UP A FROZEN MACHINE.
Frost damages are not covered by the
guarantee!
1. Stop the machine and disconnect the nozzle.
2. Clean the nozzle. IMPORTANT: The cleaning
tool should only be used when the spray lance is
detached!
3. Flush the spray lance backwards with water.
4.2 Cleaning of water inlet filter
Clean the water inlet filter (4a) regularly once a
month or more frequently according to use. Carefully loosen the filter with a screwdriver and clean it.
Check that it is intact before re-mounting it.
The inlet filter must always be fitted inside the water
inlet pipe to filter out sand, limestone and other
impurities, as they will damage the pump valves.
CAUTION: Failure to fit the filter will invalidate the
guarantee.
4.3 Cleaning of machine vents
The machine should be kept clean so as to let cooling air pass freely through the machine vents.
