Failure to do so could result in an injury from a whipping spray gun. Do Not leave the spray gun unattended while the machine is running. Never use a spray gun which does not have a trigger lock or trigger guard in place and in working order. The cleaning area should have adequate slopes and drainage to reduce the possibility of a fall due to slippery surfaces. Keep the hose connected to machine or the spray gun while the system is pressurized. Disconnecting the hose while the unit is pressurized is dangerous. Keep water spray away from electric wiring or fatal electric shock may result. Units with broken or missing parts, or without protective housing or covers, should NEVER be operated. Do Not bypass any safety device on this machine. The muffler and engine heat up during operation and remain hot immediately after shutting it down. Avoid contact with a hot muffler or engine as you could be severely burned. Check the fuel system for leaks or signs of deterioration, such as chafed or spongy hose, loose or missing clamps, or damaged tank or cap. Correct all defects before operating the pressure washer. Operate and store this unit on a stable surface. Do Not spray flammable liquids. High pressure hose can develop leaks from wear, kinking, abuse, etc. Water spraying from a leak is capable of injecting material into skin. Inspect hose each time before using it. Check all hoses for cuts, leaks, abrasions or bulging of cover, or damage or movement of couplings. If any of these conditions exist, replace hose immediately. Never repair high pressure hose. Replace it with another hose that meets maximum pressure rating of your unit. Use a respirator or mask whenever there is a chance that vapors may be inhaled. Read all instructions with mask so you are certain the mask will provide the necessary protection against inhaling harmful vapors. Never aim the gun at people, animals or plants. The high pressure stream of water that this equipment produces can pierce skin and its underlying tissues, leading to serious injury and possible amputation. The muffler and air cleaner must be installed and in good condition before operating the pressure washer. These components act as spark arrestors if the engine backfires. Never allow any part of the body to come in contact with the fluid stream. Do Not come in contact with a fluid stream created by a leak in the high pressure hose. In the State of California a spark arrestor is required by law (Section 4442 of the California Public Resources Code). Other states may have similar laws. Federal laws apply on federal lands. Always wear eye protection when you use this equipment or when you are in the vicinity where the equipment is in use. High pressure spray can cause paint chips or other particles to become airborne. NOTE: If you equip the muffler with a spark arrestor, it must be maintained in effective working order. You can order a spark arrestor through your authorized Briggs and Stratton service dealer.

Connect Garden Hose Here Inspect inlet screen. Do Not use if damaged, clean if dirty. Be sure to read the Safety Rules (page 2) and Preparing Pressure Washer For Use (page 5) before using the pressure washer. Run water through your garden hose for 30 seconds to clean out any debris. Turn off water. 7 Generac Portable Products 2300PSI High Pressure Washer HOW TO USE YOUR PRESSURE WASHER Engage the safety latch to the spray gun trigger (Figure 11). Figure 11 Spray Gun with Safety Latch Engaged If you have any problems operating your pressure washer, please call the pressure washer helpline at 1-800-270-1408. Safety Latch How to Start Your Engine Position the choke to the Full choke position. The best way to start your engine-powered pressure washer for the first time is to follow these instructions step-by-step. You may also refer to your engine owners manual. This starting information also applies whenever you start the engine after you have let the pressure washer sit idle for at least a day. NOTE: For a warm engine, be sure the choke lever is in the No choke position. Move throttle lever to Fast position. Grasp the starter grip handle and pull slowly until you feel some resistance. Then pull rapidly to start the engine. Place the pressure washer in an area close enough to an outside water source capable of supplying water at a flow rate greater than 3.2 gallons per minute. Return the starter grip handle slowly. Do Not let rope snap back against starter. Check that the high pressure hose is tightly connected to the spray gun and to the pump. See Preparing Pressure Washer for Use (page 5) for illustrations. If the choke was placed in the Full choke position to start the engine, slowly push it to the No choke position as soon as the engine warms up enough to run smoothly. Make sure unit is in a level position. If the engine fails to start, review instructions given in the engine owners manual. Connect the garden hose to the water inlet on the pressure washer pump. Turn on the water. How to Stop Your Pressure Washer CAUTION: Do Not run the pump without the water supply connected and turned on. You must follow this caution or the pump will be damaged. Move throttle lever to Stop position. Squeeze trigger on the spray gun to relieve pressure in the hose. NOTE: A small amount of water will squirt out when you release the pressure. Squeeze the trigger on the gun until you have a steady stream of water. This purges the pump of air and impurities. How to Use the Adjustable Nozzle Attach the adjustable nozzle extension to the spray gun. Tighten by hand. You now should know how to START your pressure washer and how to STOP it. The information in this section will tell you how to adjust the spray pattern and apply detergent or other cleaning chemicals. Position the nozzle in the low pressure mode (see How to Use the Adjustable Nozzle) and squeeze the trigger on the spray gun to relieve the air pressure caused by turning ON the water. Water will flow out of the gun in a thin stream. Continue to hold trigger until there is a steady stream of water and no air remains in the system. This will make it easier to pull start the engine. Release the trigger. DANGER! Never adjust spray pattern when spraying. Never put hands in front of nozzle to adjust spray pattern. On the end of your spray gun is a nozzle that you can slide forward and backward and that you can also twist. This adjustable nozzle permits you to adjust the 8 Generac Portable Products 2300PSI High Pressure Washer spray pattern to be either high pressure or low pressure. You can also adjust the spray so it is concentrated in a stream pattern or expanded into a fan pattern. Twisting the nozzle adjusts the spray pattern from a narrow pattern to a fan pattern. Located on the top of the pump is a pressure control knob. You can increase and decrease the pressure of the spray by turning the knob counterclockwise or clockwise respectively (Figure 14). Slide the nozzle forward to adjust the spray to low pressure mode (Figure 12). Slide the nozzle backward to achieve high pressure. Figure 14 Pressure control knob. Figure 12 - Using the Adjustable Nozzle. Slide nozzle backward for high pressure mode. Pressure Control Knob Slide nozzle forward for low pressure mode and detergent application. For most effective cleaning, keep the spray nozzle between 8 to 24 inches away from cleaning surface. If you get the spray nozzle too close, especially using high pressure mode, you may damage the surface being cleaned. Do Not get closer than 8 inches when cleaning tires. Twist nozzle counterclockwise for fan spray pattern. Twist nozzle clockwise for narrow spray pattern. Applying Detergent with the Adjustable Nozzle IMPORTANT: Use soaps designed specifically for pressure washers. Household detergents could damage the pump. Point the nozzle toward the ground and press the trigger to test the pattern (Figure 13). Figure 13 Test the Spray Pattern. IMPORTANT: You must attach all hoses before you start the engine. Starting the engine without all the hoses connected and without the water turned ON will damage the pump. To apply detergent, follow these steps: Review the use of adjustable nozzles. Prepare the detergent solution as required by the job. 9 Generac Portable Products 2300PSI High Pressure Washer 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. Hang the detergent solution on the hook of the wireform attached to the handle, as shown in Figure 15. Figure 15 Insert Filter into Container. For Rinsing: Slide the nozzle backward to high pressure, press the trigger and wait for the detergent to clear. NOTE: You can also stop detergent from flowing by simply removing detergent siphoning tube from bottle. Keep the spray gun a safe distance from the area you plan to spray. Remove the detergent siphoning tube from the clip on the handle. Apply a high pressure spray to a small area, then check the surface for damage. If no damage is found, it is okay to continue cleaning. Place the filter end of the detergent siphoning tube into the detergent container. Start at the top of the area to be rinsed, working down with same overlapping strokes as you used for washing and applying detergent. CAUTION: Keep the detergent siphoning tube from coming in contact with the hot muffler. This will damage the plastic tube. When inserting the filter into a cleaning solution bottle, route the tube so as to keep it from inadvertently contacting the hot muffler. 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 140145°F. When the water reaches this temperature, the automatic cool down system engages and cools the pump by discharging the warm water onto the ground. This system prevents internal damage to the pump. Slide the adjustable nozzle forward to low pressure mode. Detergent cannot be applied with the nozzle in high pressure position. Make sure the garden hose is connected to the water inlet. Check that the high pressure hose is connected to the spray gun and the pump (see How To Use Your Pressure Washer, page 7). Start the engine.

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 does 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.
