INTRODUCTION
A Kärcher Power Washer, has been issued to Shrewsbury Station specifically for use on the
Heavy Pumping Unit. it is provided in order to ensure the chassis components of the vehicle
are kept clean. Operators should note that under no circumstances should the jet spray be
used directly on vehicle paintwork. Because of the combination of a high pressure jet and the
action of dislodging dirt and debris from the chassis, there is a risk of foreign bodies entering
the eye. Therefore, personnel should at all times (when operating the power wash) wear
either goggles, or a fire helmet with the integral goggles in the down position.
The Power Washer can be used to supply either a high pressure water jet or a combined water
jet with cleaning agent.
IMPORTANT NOTICE:
ONLY CHEMICAL DETERGENTS SUPPLIED FOR USE WITH THIS MACHINE
SHOULD BE USED. A RANGE IS AVAILABLE ON REQUEST THROUGH
STORES SHOULD THEY BE REQUIRED.
