CONNECTION
This product has a precision-built electric
motor. It should be connected to a power
supply that is 120 volts, AC only (normal
household current), 60 Hz. Do not operate
this product on direct current (DC). A
substantial voltage drop will cause a loss
of power and the motor will overheat. If the
product does not operate when plugged into
an outlet, double-check the power supply.

will not get caught on lumber, tools, or other
obstructions while you are working with a
power tool. Failure to do so can result in
serious personal injury.
GROUND FAULT CIRCUIT
INTERRUPTER
This unit is equipped with a Ground Fault
Circuit Interrupter (GFCI), which guards
against the hazards of ground fault currents.
An example of ground fault current is the
current that would flow through a person who
is using an appliance with faulty insulation
and, at the same time, is in contact with an
electrical ground such as a plumbing fixture,
wet floor, or earth.

• The Green pressure washer tip provides high versatility with its 25
degree angle tip. Referred to as the washing tip, because it provides
adequate pressure to remove dirt from surfaces, but is designed to
not damage many surfaces. This pressure washer tip is designed for
"sweeping" foliage or debris given its wide angle. This tip is versatile
due to its wide area of cleaning and strong pressure application.

• The white 40 degree tip, referred to as the "fan" tip creates the
widest area of cleaning with relatively low pressure. This pressure
washer tip is best used for light or delicate cleaning applications. It
is recommended for light cleaning on wood decks and other soft or
delicate surfaces.
Black - Soap nozzle tip
• The black soap 75 degree tip is referred to as the low pressure
nozzle. This is for use with soap application.
Turbo Nozzle Tip
• This 0 degree nozzle tip rotates to create a circular spray pattern to
break down tough dirt and grime. The spray pattern can cover an
area of 4 to 8 inches wide, depending on the distance between the
tip and the surface being cleaned.
