PREPARING THE UNIT
FOR STORAGE
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.
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.
CAUTION
Read and follow all cautions and warnings on the
PumpSaver can label.
• Always wear eye protection when using PumpSaver.
3.
Empty pump of liquids by pulling engine recoil handle
about 6 times. This should remove most liquid in
pump.
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.
4.
Use pump saver to prevent corrosion build up and
freezing of pump.
NOTE: PumpSaver will drip from pump after treatment
and will stain wood and concrete.
5.
Store unit in a clean, dry area.
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.
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.
STORING THE ENGINE
See the engine owner’s manual for instructions on how to
properly prepare the engine for storage.
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.

period of time stated in the table above. "Consumer use" means personal residential household use by a retail consumer.
"Commercial use" means all other uses, including use for commercial, income producing or rental purposes. Once equipment has

MANUFACTURING DATE OF THE EQUIPMENT WILL BE USED TO DETERMINE THE WARRANTY PERIOD.
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.
