CAUTION
CAUTION: Always store your pressure washer in a location where the
temperature will not fall below 32° F
(0° C). The pump in this machine is
susceptible to permanent damage if
frozen.
1. Stop the pressure washer and detach supply hose
and high pressure hose. Squeeze the trigger of the
spray gun to drain all water from the wand and
hose.
2. Restart pressure washer and let it run briefly (about
5 seconds) until water no longer discharges from
the high pressure outlet.
FREEZE DAMAGE IS NOT COVERED
BY WARRANTY.
If you must store your pressure washer in a location
where the temperature is below 32° F, you can minimize
the chance of damage to your machine by draining your
machine as follows:

This pressure washer was produced with the best available materials and quality craftsmanship. However, you
as the owner have certain responsibilities for the correct care of the equipment. Attention to regular preventative
maintenance procedures will assist in preserving the performance of your equipment. Contact your dealer for
maintenance. Regular preventative maintenance will add many hours to the life of your pressure washer. Perform
maintenance more often under severe conditions.

General Inspection
Lubrication & Bearings
Type of Grease
Inspect the motor at regular intervals, approximately every 500 hours of operation,
or every 3 months, whichever occurs first. Keep the motor clean and the ventilation
openings clear. The following steps should be performed at each inspection:
WARNING: Do not touch electrical connections before you first ensure that power
has been disconnected. Electrical shock can cause serious or fatal injury. Only
qualified personnel should attempt the installation, operation and maintenance of
this equipment.
1. Check that the motor is clean. Check that the interior and exterior of the motor is free of dirt, oil, grease, water, etc. Oily vapor, paper pulp, textile lint, etc.
can accumulate and block motor ventilation. If the motor is not properly ventilated overheating can occur and cause early motor failure.
2. Check all electrical connectors to be sure that they are tight.
Bearing grease will lose its lubricating ability over time, not suddenly. The lubricating
ability of a grease (over time) depends primarily on the type of grease, the size of
the bearing, the speed at which the bearing operates and the severity of the operating conditions. Good results can be obtained if the following recommendations are
used in your maintenance program.
A high grade ball or roller bearing grease should be used. Recommended greases
standard service conditions are: Shell Dolium R (Factory installed) or Chevron
SRI.
