OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING: Risk of Injection or Injury. Do not directly discharge stream at anyone.
WARNING: If the lance and nozzle are not securely locked into place, they could be ejected
under high pressure when operating the gun.
WARNING: Make sure the wand is pointed in a safe direction when starting the pressure
washer. Do not point at face or feet as serious injury could result.
High Pressure / Low Pressure Spray
WARNING: Do not touch the nozzle to adjust pressure while the trigger is squeezed.
The high pressure nozzle position is intended for cleaning. When high pressure is required, grasp
the variable spray nozzle head and slide back fully toward the gun. (Fig.13)

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Variable Spray
The variable spray nozzle can adjust from fan to pencil point spray in both the high and low
pressure positions. The spray can be adjusted by turning the nozzle head.
CAUTION: The pencil point spray adjustment is very aggressive. We recommend that
for most cleaning applications a 20° spray angle be used to avoid damage
to the surface being cleaned.
NOTE: The pressure of the spray on the surface you are cleaning increases as you move the
wand closer to the surface.
To adjust the spray pattern, turn the nozzle head clockwise or counterclockwise as desired. (Fig.15)
Fig. 15
Turbo Spray Nozzle
WARNING: Do not attempt to move the turbo nozzle to adjust pressure. The
turbo nozzle is not adjustable.
To use the turbo spray nozzle, first separate the variable spray nozzle from the lance. Then
thread the turbo nozzle into the lance until fully seated and locked into position. (Fig.16-17)
The turbo lance high pressure spray pattern delivers the optimal cleaning effect. Keep the turbo
lance a minimum of 8 in. away from the cleaning surface at all times.

2) Fill the detergent tank (2) with suitable cleaning solution. (Fig.18)
3) Move the variable nozzle forward to the low pressure position by sliding the nozzle head fully
forward away from the gun. (Fig.18)
4) Squeeze the tigger and the detergent will automatically be mixed with the water and
dispensed from the nozzle.
NOTE: When the variable nozzle is moved to the high pressure position, detergent will not
dispensed.
Fig. 18
CLEANING TECHNIQUES
When cleaning with the pressure washer, some cleaning tasks can be solved with water alone, but
for most tasks it is advantageous to use a detergent. A detergent ensures a quick soaking of the dirt
allowing the high pressure water to penetrate and remove the dirt more effectively. The low
pressure position provides a gentle application of detergents. This position is also recommended to
rinse a surface after wax application or for other applications which require the low pressure of a
garden hose.
Application of Detergent
CAUTION: Damage may occur to painted surface if detergent is allowed to dry on the
surface. Wash and rinse a small section at a time. Avoid working on hot
surfaces or in direct sunlight.
1) Apply the solution to a dry work surface. Note that wetting the surface first is not
recommended, as it dilutes the detergent and reduces its cleaning ability. On a vertical surface,
apply horizontally from side to side starting from the bottom to avoid streaking.
2) Allow detergent to remain on the surface for short time before rinsing. Do not allow the
detergent to dry on the surface.
3) Rinse with clean water under high pressure. On a vertical surface, first rinse from the bottom
up, then rinse from the top down. Hold nozzle 6 to 8 inches from the work surface at a 45° angle
using the flat spray as a peeling tool rather than a scrub brush.
4) When you have completed use of the detergent injection system, continue to run in low pressure
position and flush clean water through the detergent tank until it is thoroughly cleaned.
NOTE: Failure to clean properly will cause the injection system to become clogged and inoperable.
14
END OF USE AND WINTER STORAGE INSTRUCTIONS
1) When finished using the pressure washer, you must first drain and rinse the detergent tanks.
2) Run the pressure washer in low pressure until all of the detergent is drained from the detergent
tanks.
3) Pour clear water into the tank(s) and run it through on low pressure as though it were detergent.
4) Turn the machine OFF and squeeze the trigger to release the trapped pressure inside of the
machine.
5) Remove both the garden hose and high pressure hose from the unit.
6) Turn ON the machine and allow it to run for 5 seconds. (This will clear out most of the water
trapped in the pump).
7) Unplug the machine and store the powercord as shown below. (Fig.19)
8) Store the machine and accessories in a dry, climate controlled environment. Do not store the
machine or accessories in a place where the temperature could drop below 40°F. FREEZE
DAMAGE IS NOT COVERED BY THE WARRANTY.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Connections
Connections on Pressure Washer hoses, gun and spray wand should be cleaned regularly and
lubricated with non-water soluble grease to prevent leakage and damage to the o-rings.
Nozzles
The nozzles should be lubricated with non-water soluble grease or light oil regularly.
Clogging of the nozzle causes the pump pressure to build up too high and cleaning is immediately
required.
1) Clear blockage in nozzle by forcing stiff wire through center hole.
2) Backflush the nozzle with water. Restart the pressure washer and depress the trigger on the
spray gun. If the pressure is still too high, repeat above items 1-2.
Lubrication
The pressure washer is designed with a permanent lubrication system. Conventional oil check and
oil changes are not necessary.
NOTE: In case of oil leakage, contact our customer service department.
Water Screen
CAUTION: If the screen is not kept clean, the flow of water to the pressure washer will be
restricted and the pump may be damaged.
CAUTION: Do not damage the screen while removing or cleaning. Any foreign particles
entering the pump may damage the pump.
To clean inner water screen, first remove the garden hose connector using the provided
7mm hex wrench as shown in Fig. 20. Turn counter-clockwise to remove the garden
hose connector from the machine inlet. Then remove the filter screen from the inlet.
Backflush screen to clean. Replace screen and garden hose connector immediately to prevent any
foreign matter from entering the pump. See the diagram on page 7 for proper filter orientation.
Make sure to tighten the garden hose connector using the 7mm hex wrench turning clockwise.
DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN.
CAUTION: Do not overtighten garden hose connector to machine inlet. Damage and leaking
will occur. Any damage will not be covered under warranty.
