PREPARING THE UNIT

FOR STORAGE

Water should not remain in the unit for long periods of time. Sediments or minerals can deposit on pump parts and

“freeze” pump action. If you do not plan to use the pressure washer for more than 30 days, follow this procedure:

1.

Flush detergent siphoning tube by placing filter into pail of clean water while running pressure washer in low pressure mode. Flush for one to two minutes.

2.

Shut off engine and let it cool, then remove high pressure and garden hoses. Disconnect spark plug wire from spark plug.

3.

Empty pump of liquids by pulling engine recoil handle about 6 times.This should remove most liquid in pump.

4.

Use pump saver to prevent corrosion build up and freezing of pump.

5.

Store unit in a clean, dry area.

Protecting the Pump

To protect the pump from damage caused by mineral deposits or freezing, use PumpSaver to treat pump.This

prevents freeze damage and lubricates pistons and seals.

NOTE: PumpSaver is available as an optional accessory. It is not included with the pressure washer. Contact the nearest authorized service center to purchase PumpSaver.

CAUTION

You must protect your unit from freezing temperatures.

• Failure to do so will permanently damage your pump and render your unit inoperable.

• Freeze damage is not covered under warranty.

CAUTION

Read and follow all cautions and warnings on the

PumpSaver can label.

• Always wear eye protection when using PumpSaver.

To use PumpSaver, make sure the pressure washer is turned off and disconnected from supply water. Read and follow all instructions and warnings given on the PumpSaver container.

NOTE: PumpSaver will drip from pump after treatment and will stain wood and concrete.

NOTE: If PumpSaver is not available, draw RV antifreeze

(non-alcohol) into the pump by pouring the solution into a

3-foot section of garden hose connected to inlet adapter and pulling recoil handle twice.

STORING THE ENGINE

See the engine owner’s manual for instructions on how to properly prepare the engine for storage.

About your equipment warranty:

We welcome warranty repair and apologize to you for being inconvenienced.Any Authorized service dealer may perform warranty repairs. Most warranty repairs are handled routinely, but sometimes requests for warranty service may not be appropriate. For example, warranty service would not apply if equipment damage occurred because of misuse, lack of routine maintenance, shipping, handling, warehousing or improper installation. Similarly, the warranty is void if the manufacturing date or the serial number on the equipment has been removed or the equipment has been altered or modified. During the warranty period, the Authorized service dealer, at its option, will repair or replace any part that, upon examination, is found to be defective under normal use and service.This

warranty will not cover following repairs and equipment:

Normal Wear: Outdoor power equipment, like all mechanical devices, needs 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 the equipment.

Installation and Maintenance: This warranty does not apply to equipment or parts that have been subjected to improper or unauthorized installation or alteration and modification, misuse, negligence, accident, overloading, overspeeding, improper maintenance, repair or storage so as, in our judgment, to adversely affect its performance and reliability.This warranty also does not cover normal maintenance such as adjustments, fuel system cleaning and obstruction (due to chemical, dirt, carbon or lime, etc.).

Other Exclusions: Also excluded from this warranty are wear items such as quick couplers, oil gauges, belts, o-rings, filters, pump packing, etc., pumps which have been run without water supplied or damage or malfunctions resulting from accidents, abuse, modifications, alterations, or improper servicing or freezing or chemical deterioration. Accessory parts such as guns, hoses, wands and nozzles are excluded from the product warranty. Also excluded is used, reconditioned, and demonstration equipment; equipment used for prime power in place of utility power and equipment used in life support applications.
