and heavy rubber boots. During pressure washing, debris can fly back into your
face. Wear an ANSI approved dust mask or respirator when working around chemical dusts and mists.
7.
8.
Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. Do not reach over or
across running machines.
9.
Maintain tools with care. Keep tools sharp and clean for better and safer performance.
Follow instructions for lubricating and changing accessories. Inspect tool hoses periodically
and, if damaged, have them repaired by an authorized technician. The handles must be kept
clean, dry, and free from oil and grease at all times.
10.
Turn power off. Turn off engine when not in use.
11.
Remove adjusting keys and wrenches. Check that keys and adjusting wrenches are
removed from the tool or machine work surface before turning engine on.
12.
Avoid unintentional starting. Be sure that the water handle switch is in the Off position
when not in use and before turning engine on. Do not carry spray handle with your finger on
the trigger, whether engine is turn on or not.
13.
Stay alert. Watch what you are doing, use common sense. Do not operate any tool when
you are tired.
14.
Take caution as some woods contain preservatives such as copper chromium arsenate (CCA) which can be toxic. When high pressure spraying these materials extra care
should be taken to avoid inhalation and minimize skin contact.
15.
Check for damaged parts. Before using any tool, any part that appears damaged should
be carefully checked to determine that it will operate properly and perform its intended
function. Check for alignment and binding of moving parts; any broken parts or mounting
fixtures; and any other condition that may affect proper operation. Any part that is damaged
should be properly repaired or replaced by a qualified technician. Do not use the tool if any

High Pressure Washer Safety Precautions
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
Fire Hazard! Do not fill gas tank when the engine is running. Do not operate if
gasoline has been spilled. Clean spilled gasoline before starting the engine. Do
not operate near a pilot light or open flame.
Operate the Pressure Washer in well ventilated outdoor areas only. Carbon
monoxide is produced during operation and is deadly in a closed
environment. Early signs of carbon Monoxide poisoning resemble the flu, with
headaches, dizziness, or nausea. If you have these signs, the engine may not be
working properly, or is being used indoors. Get fresh air immediately.
Injection hazard! The high pressure water jet can be dangerous and cut skin if
misused. Do not spray toward other people, animals, electrical boxes or outlets,
or the machine itself.
Use only cold water as the active propellant in the Pressure washer. Do not
use acids, alkalines, solvents, or any other flammable materials in this machine.
Chemicals can harm you and permanently damage the Pressure Washer.
Avoid burns from the engine. Certain parts of the engine become very hot during
use. Do not touch the engine until it cools down after use.
6.
During use, do not allow the high pressure hose to come in contact with any part
of the (hot) engine. Damage to the hose could occur causing it to burst under high
pressure.
7.
In case of emergency during use, release the trigger on spray handle to stop the
spray, then shut off the gas supply valve on the engine. Refer to the Operation
section.
8.
Avoid tipping the Pressure Washer during use. Place only on a flat, stable surface.

Page Operation
Important Guidelines
•
Do leave the engine running without spraying water. If it is left on for more than
three minutes without discharging the high pressure water, damage could occur to the
internal pump and high pressure hose.
•
The water hose should provide at least 3 gallons per minute for the Pressure
Washer to operate at maximum performance. Use only 3/4 (dia.) inch water hose
supply. A smaller diameter hose limits the amount of water to the pump. Test by
filling a five gallon bucket with the water supply hose. It should fill the bucket in three
minutes or less.
•
Always use clean water through the Pressure Washer. Debris in dirty water could
damage the internal pump.
Setup
1.
Fill with engine oil. Never run this Pressure Washer with
low or no oil.
With Pressure Washer on a flat surface, carefully
unscrew the Oil Cap Dip Stick (A). Add oil. Carefully
screw in the Oil Cap Dip Stick (A). If the (plastic) threads
on the Oil Cap do not seat correctly with the (metal)
threads on the oil fill neck, the plastic threads can be
stripped. Refer to the Robin® Engine Maintenance
Manual for the recommended oil weight.
2.
3.
Fill the gasoline tank (B) with unleaded gasoline. See
engine photo on the next page.
Do not use leaded gasoline. Be careful not to spill any
gasoline on the engine or pavement. Wash down any
spilled gasoline.
Connect the 3/4 inch garden hose from a cold water
garden faucet to the Water Inlet Connector (8A). Tighten
securely. See photo to right. Turn on the water faucet
valve all the way (counterclockwise).
