HOW TO USE YOUR

PRESSURE WASHER

If you have any problems operating your pressure washer, please call the pressure washer helpline at

1-800-270-1408.

How to Start Your Engine

The best way to start your engine-powered pressure washer for the first time is to follow these instructions step-by-step.

• This pressure washer requires a water source that flows at least 3.2 gallons per minute. Do not attempt to siphon water from a non-pressurized

container. Place the pressure washer close enough to an outside water source so that no more than 50' of garden hose is needed.

• Check that the high pressure hose is tightly connected to the spray gun and to the pump. See

ASSEMBLY section for illustrations.

• Connect the garden hose to water inlet on the pressure washer pump and turn the water on all the way.

IMPORTANT: Do not run pump without the water supply connected and turned on. You must follow this caution or the pump will be damaged.

• Set choke lever to “Choke” position. Note: This is a multi-position choke.

• Move the throttle control lever to the ‘Fast’ position.

Note: For a warm engine, be sure the throttle control is in the ‘Fast’ position and the choke lever is in the

“Run” position.

• Turn the fuel shut–off valve to the “On” position.

• Squeeze the trigger on the spray gun to relieve air pressure caused by turning ON the water. Water will spew out the gun in a thin stream. Continue to hold trigger until you have a steady stream of water and no air remains.This will make it easier to pull start the engine. Release the trigger.

• Apply the safety latch to the spray gun trigger

(Figure 10).

Figure 10 — Safety Latch.

Safety Latch

• Grasp rope handle and pull slowly until you feel some resistance. Then pull cord rapidly to overcome compression, prevent kickback and start the engine. Let rope return to starter slowly.

Note: Always keep the throttle control in the ‘Fast’ position when operating the pressure washer.

• When the engine starts, gradually move the choke control from one position to the next until it is in the

“Run” position.

If after 3 pulls the engine fails to start, disengage the spray gun safety latch, squeeze the trigger to relive water pressure, re-engage the spray gun safety latch, move the choke control to the “Run” position and pull the recoil starter handle rapidly (Max. 3 pulls).

How to Stop Your Pressure

Washer

Important: Do Not move the choke control to

“Choke” position to stop the engine. Backfire or engine damage may occur.

• Move the throttle control to the “Idle” or “Slow” position.

• Wait for the engine to idle down.

• Move the throttle control to the ‘Off’ position.

• Close the fuel shut–off valve.

• Squeeze trigger on the spray gun to relieve

pressure in the hose. Simply shutting off the engine will not release pressure in the system.

Note: A small amount of water will squirt out when you release the pressure.

Applying Detergent with the

Adjustable Nozzle

IMPORTANT: Use soaps designed specifically for

pressure washers. Household detergents could damage the pump.

To apply detergent follow these steps:

• Review the use of adjustable nozzles on Page 11.

• Prepare the detergent as required on the bottle.

• Hang the detergent solution on hook of the wireform on the handle as shown (Figure 13).

• Place small filter end of the chemical injection tube into the detergent container (Figure 13).

Figure 13 — Insert the small filter into container of cleaning solution.

• Slide the adjustable nozzle forward to low pressure mode. Detergent cannot be applied with nozzle in high pressure position.

IMPORTANT: Detergent cannot be applied without the water source turned on.

• Make sure garden hose is connected to water inlet.

Check that high pressure hose is connected to spray gun and pump (see ASSEMBLY), and start engine.

• Apply detergent to a dry surface, starting from the bottom and working up to avoid streaking.

• Allow the detergent to soak in for 3-5 minutes before washing and rinsing. Reapply to prevent drying

• For washing, start at lower portion of area to be washed and work upward, using long, even, overlapping strokes.

CAUTION! Keep the plastic chemical injection tube from coming in contact with the hot muffler. This will damage the plastic tube. When inserting the filter into a cleaning agent bottle, route the tube so as to keep it from inadvertently contacting the hot muffler.

12

Pressure Washer Rinsing

WARNING! Be extremely careful if you must use the pressure washer from a ladder, scaffolding or any other relatively unstable location. Pressure in a running washer builds as you climb. When you press the trigger, the recoil from the initial spray could force you to fall. The high pressure spray could also force you to fall if you are too close to the cleaning surface.

For Rinsing:

• Slide nozzle backward to high pressure and wait for detergent to clear.

Note: You can also stop detergent from flowing by simply removing the chemical injection tube from the bottle.

• Keep the spray gun a safe distance from the area you plan to spray.

• Apply a high pressure spray to a small area and then check the surface for damage. If no damage is found, you can assume it is okay to continue cleaning.

• Start at top of area to be rinsed, working down with the same overlapping strokes you used for cleaning.

• For most effective cleaning, keep spray nozzle between 8 to 24 inches away from cleaning surface.

• If you get spray nozzle too close, especially using high pressure mode, you may damage the cleaning surface.

• Do not get closer than 6 inches when cleaning automobile tires.

Automatic Cool Down System

(Thermal Relief)

If you run the engine on your pressure washer for 3-5 minutes without pressing the trigger on the spray gun, circulating water in the pump can reach a temperature between 140–145°F. When the water reaches this temperature, the automatic cool down system engages and cools the pump by discharging

the warm water onto the base of the unit. This system prevents internal damage to the pump.

Nozzle Maintenance

If the adjustable nozzle becomes restricted or clogged with foreign materials, such as dirt, excessive pump pressure may develop. If this nozzle becomes partially clogged, it can cause a pulsing sensation during use. This generally is not a pump related problem, but rather a clogged or partially restricted adjustable nozzle.

If the adjustable nozzle becomes clogged or partially restricted, immediately clean the nozzle with the kit included with your pressure washer by following these instructions:

• Shut off the engine and turn off the water supply.

• Separate the nozzle extension from the gun.

• Adjust the nozzle extension to the stream position.

• Remove nozzle from the end of the wand extension

(Figure 14) using a 2mm or 5/64 allen wrench (like the one included in the kit).

Figure 14 — Remove nozzle.

• Use the wire included in the kit (Figure 15) or a small paper clip to free the foreign materials clogging or restricting the nozzle.

Figure 15 — Clean the nozzle.

• Remove additional debris by back flushing water through wand extension (Figure 16). Back flush between 30 to 60 seconds. Turn nozzle extension to stream spray and move nozzle forward and backward while flushing.

Figure 16 — Backflush nozzle.

• Reinstall nozzle into the wand extension. DO NOT over–tighten.

* NOTE: For the purpose of this warranty “consumer use” means personal residential household use by original purchaser. “Commercial Use” means all other uses, including rental, construction, commercial and income producing purposes. Once a pressure washer has experienced commercial use, it shall thereafter be considered a commercial use pressure washer for the purposes of this warranty.

During said warranty period, Generac Portable Products will, at its option, repair or replace any part which, upon examination by Generac Portable Products or Generac Portable Products Authorized Dealers, is found to be defective under normal use and service**. All transportation costs under warranty, including return to the factory if necessary, are to be borne by the purchaser and prepaid by the purchaser.

** NORMAL WEAR: As with all mechanical devices, pressure washers need periodic parts service and replacement to perform well. This warranty will not cover repair when normal use has exhausted the life of a part or pressure washer pump.

THIS WARRANTY DOES NOT INCLUDE: Used products and demonstration equipment. Parts such as GUNS,

HOSES, WANDS, NOZZLES or other wear items such as quick couplers, oil, gauges, belts, O-rings, filters, pump packing, etc. Pumps which have been run without water supplied. Damage or malfunctions resulting from: accidents, abuse, modifications, alterations, or improper servicing. Freezing or chemical deterioration. Normal maintenance such as adjustments, fuel system cleaning and obstruction (due to chemical, dirt, carbon or lime, etc.).

THIS WARRANTY IS IN PLACE OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, SPECIFICALLY,

GENERAC PORTABLE PRODUCTS MAKES NO OTHER WARRANTIES AS TO MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS

FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE DURATION OF ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES WHICH CANNOT BE DIS-

CLAIMED IS LIMITED TO THE TIME PERIOD AS SPECIFIED IN THE EXPRESS WARRANTY. LIABILITY FOR

CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR SPECIAL DAMAGES UNDER ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES IS EXCLUDED,

EVEN IF SUCH DAMAGES ARE A DIRECT RESULT OF GENERAC PORTABLE PRODUCTS' NEGLIGENCE.

GENERAC ALSO DISCLAIMS ANY RESPONSIBILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES SUCH

AS THE LOSS OF TIME OR THE USE OF THE POWER EQUIPMENT, OR ANY COMMERCIAL LOSS DUE TO THE

FAILURE OF THE EQUIPMENT: AND ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES ARE LIMITED TO THE DURATION OF THIS

WRITTEN WARRANTY.

Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, or the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights and you may also have other rights, which vary from state to state.

For service, see your nearest Generac Portable Products authorized warranty service facility or call 1-877-544-0982.

Warranty service can be performed only by a Generac Portable Products authorized service facility. This warranty will not apply to service at any other facility. At the time of requesting warranty service, evidence of original purchase date must be presented.
