OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Surface Preparation
Before starting any cleaning task it is important to inspect the area for objects which could
create a hazard. Remove objects from the work area which could be tripped over, such as
toys or outdoor furniture. Ensure that all doors and windows are closed tight.
USING THE ACCESSORIES
Adjustable Wand
The adjustable wand controls high-pressure/low-pressure and adjusts the spray.
CAUTION
Do not adjust the nozzle while the trigger is squeezed.
High-pressure/Low-pressure
For low-pressure, grasp the collar and slide it away from the gun as shown in. To apply
detergent, the adjustable nozzle must be on the low-pressure setting.
The high-pressure nozzle position is intended for cleaning. To get the high-pressure setting,
grasp collar and slide the collar nozzle towards the gun as shown. Make sure the collar is
pulled completely back to lock the nozzle into the high-pressure position.
Adjusting the Spray
The adjustable spray nozzle can adjust from fan to jet in the high-pressure position only.
The spray is adjusted from jet spray to fan spray by turning the nozzle as shown in.
Note: The pressure of the spray on the surface you are cleaning increases as you move the
wand closer to the surface.
CAUTION
Jet spray adjustment is very aggressive. Do not adjust while spraying. We recommend that for most cleaning applications a 20º spray angle should be used to avoid
damage to the surface being sprayed.
Turbo Power Wand
The high-pressure turbo nozzle is intended
for maximum cleaning effect. Keep the
spray wand 6–8” (15-20 cm) away from
the cleaning surface at all times.
CAUTION
Do not try to adjust the turbo nozzle.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
WORKING WITH DETERGENTS
Working with detergent ensures a quick soaking of the dirt, and allows the high-pressure
water to penetrate and remove the dirt more effectively. Always spray detergent on a dry
surface, do not pre-soak area. Wetting the surface first dilutes the detergent and reduces
its cleaning ability.
To apply detergents you must be operating at low-pressure. This provides a gentle application of detergent, with the pressure equivalent to a lowest garden hose. The high-pressure
setting is used for cleaning; you cannot apply detergents when working at high-pressure.
Always test detergent in an inconspicuous area before use.
CAUTION
Only use cleaning detergents recommended for this pressure washer.

WINTERIZING AND LONG-TERM STORAGE
Optimum Winterizing Procedure
Winterizing your pressure washer will help protect and prolong its life. We strongly recommend you follow the below steps using antifreeze. Prepare the pressure washer for storage by running a 50/50 mix of water and antifreeze into the unit. This will keep the internal
parts lubricated, protected from rust, and prevents the pump from freezing.
1. Connect the antifreeze hose onto the adaptor and quick-connect coupling.
2. Depress button on top of antifreeze container.
3. Continue until fluid exits the pump outlet.
4. Remove the hose from pump inlet.
Use Simoniz® Pressure Washer Antifreeze (39-8602-0).
Quick Winterizing Procedure
If you cannot do the Optimum Winterizing
procedure, you can still protect your pressure washer from winter-damage by doing
below:
1. Disconnect all water connections.
2. Turn on the machine for a few seconds,
until the remaining water in the pump
exits. Turn off immediately.
3. Do not allow high-pressure hose to
become kinked.
4. Store the machine and accessories in
a room that does not reach freezing
temperatures. Do not store near furnace
or other sources of heat as it may dry out
the pump seals.
14
CLEANING AND USER MAINTENANCE
Connections
Connections on pressure washer hoses; gun and spray wand should be cleaned regularly
and lubricated with non-water soluble grease.
Adjustable Nozzle Only
Clogging of the nozzle causes the pump
pressure to be too high and cleaning is
immediately required. You can clean the
nozzle by carefully inserting a thin, sharp
instrument (i.e. paperclip) into the tip to rid
it of deposits.
For the adjustable nozzle, you can also
lubricate the nozzle collar (high-pressure/
low-pressure) by using non-water soluble
grease regularly.
Water Filter Screen
The pressure washer is equipped with a
water inlet screen to protect the pump. If
the screen is not kept clean, the flow of water to the pressure washer will be restricted
and the pump may be damaged.
1. To clean inner water screen, remove
quick-connector and remove the filter
screen from the pump inlet.
2. Rinse screen until it is free of debris
and blockage.
3. Replace screen and quick-connector immediately to prevent any foreign matter
from entering the pump.
Air Vents
The air vents located on the back of the unit must be kept clean and free of any
obstructions to ensure proper air-cooling of the motor during operation.
15
CLEANING AND USER MAINTENANCE
Pressure Washer Cleaning Tips
Recommendations
Before cleaning any surface, an inconspicuous area should be cleaned to test spray pattern
and distance for maximum cleaning results.
• Take care when using high-pressure setting as it can potentially damage the finish or paint.
• If painted surfaces are peeling or chipping, use extreme caution as pressure washer may
remove the loose paint from the surface.
• The best angle for spraying high-pressure water against a cleaning surface is 45°. Spraying directly head-on tends to cause dirt particles to embed in the surface.
Deck Cleaning
With Detergent: Fill detergent bottle with Deck/Fence Cleaner (39-4577-4). Place detergent
suction tube directly into cleaning solution and apply to surface at low-pressure. For best results, limit your work area to smaller sections of approximately 25 sq.ft. (2.3 m2). Allow Deck
Wash to remain on surface 1 to 3 minutes. Do not allow detergent to dry on surface. Rinse
at high-pressure in a long sweeping motion keeping the spray nozzle approximately 6” (15
cm) from the cleaning surface. Always clean from top to bottom and from left to right.
When moving on to a new section of the cleaning surface, be sure to overlap the previous
section to eliminate stop marks and ensure a more even cleaning result.
Without Detergent: Pre-rinse cleaning surface with fresh water and wash with water on
high-pressure using same directions as above.
House Siding
With Detergent: Fill detergent bottle with House/Siding Cleaner (39-4576-6). Place detergent
suction tube directly into cleaning solution and apply to surface at low pressure (for best results, limit your work area to sections of approximately 6’ (1.8 m) and always apply detergent
from bottom to top). Allow detergent to remain on surface 1–3 minutes. Do not allow detergent to dry on surface, if surface appears to be drying, simply wet down surface with fresh
water. Rinse at high-pressure from bottom to top, then top to bottom in an even sweeping
motion keeping the spray nozzle approximately 6” (15 cm) from the cleaning surface.
Without Detergent: Pre-rinse cleaning surface with fresh water and wash with water on
high-pressure using same directions as above.
Cement Patios, Brick & Stone
With Detergent: Fill detergent bottle with Heavy-duty Degreaser (39-4551-4). Place detergent suction tube directly into cleaning solution and apply to surface at low-pressure. For
best results, limit your work area to smaller sections of approximately 25 sq.ft. (2.3 m2).
Allow degreaser to remain on surface 1–3 minutes. Do not allow detergent to dry on surface. Rinse at high-pressure in a sweeping motion keeping the spray nozzle approximately
3–6” (7.5 – 15 cm) from the cleaning surface. Always clean from top to bottom and from
left to right.
Without detergent: Pre-rinse cleaning surface with fresh water and wash with water on
high-pressure using same directions as above.
