OPERATION

HOW TO USE YOUR WASHER

Pressure washer are a helpful tool designed to clean almost any type of surface in two easy steps.

First, the application of an appropriate detergent/ solvent solution to penetrate and loosen the grime.

The detergent is applied at low pressure to avoid splashing, overspray and waste. The solution is left on for 3-5 minutes to allow it to work.

• Second, the prepared surface is pressure washed and rinsed clean.

PRESSURE WASH / RINSE

- Hook up water supply.

- Twist nozzle (see Fig. page 9) to select high pressure operation.

Note: Detergent solution will not flow when in the high pressure mode.

- Start washer and work from the top of the surface down.

- The pressure washer is most effective when the tip of the wand is held 6 to 24 inches from the surface being cleaned.

DETERGENT APPLICATION

- Mix detergent solution in accordance with usage instructions.

- PH value of the solution must be between 4 and 12.

- Place the end of detergent siphoning tube in detergent solution.

- Hook up water supply.

- Twist nozzle (see Fig. page 9) to select low pressure operation.

- Start washer and apply detergent on dry surface, starting from the bottom and working up.

Note: Detergents are most effective when applied to a dry surface.

- Cover only enough surface so that it does not dry before washing / rinsing.

Note: Run clean water through the machine to flush after spraying detergent.

DO NOT USE:

BLEACH AND OTHER CORROSIVE CHEMICALS

• LIQUIDS CONTAINING SOLVENTS (IE. PAINT

THINNERS, GASOLINE, OIL)

CHLORINE PRODUCTS

TRI-SODIUM PHOSPHATE PRODUCTS

AMMONIA PRODUCTS

ACID-BASED PRODUCTS

TURNING WASHER ON

IMPORTANT:

You must never run this power washer unless it is properly connected to a water supply or permament damage may result.

- Connect to water supply and turn water on.

- Accuate gun trigger and purge lines of air.

- With gun off, switch power on.

Note: When you release the gun´s trigger during operation, the bypass valve opens, the water is returned to the suction side of the pump and is recirculated.

TURNING WASHER OFF

IMPORTANT:

Turn washer off if not cleaning for more than

5 minutes to prevent damage.

- Switch power to off.

- Disconnect electrical cord.

- Disconnect water supply.

- Lock gun trigger for storage.

O P E R A T I O N

CHANGEOVER NOZZLE

• It is possible to work with a high pressure or a low pressure jet. The symbol of the choosen jet form is on the upper side of the changeover nozzle.

• Changing the jet form is only possible with the trigger gun closed.

- Release trigger.

- Turn changeover nozzle 90° to alter pressure of the water jet.

Note: Detergents can only be syphoned at low pressure.

WASHING BRUSH

Use the washing brush to clean at low pressure to remove dirt and road film. The brush can be used with or without detergent.

To attach:

- Push the washing brush into the trigger gun against the spring tension and turn it as far as the stop.

- The washing brush must lock into position.

CLEANING TIPS

- For best results, the high-pressure lance should be held between 6" - 24" away from the surface being cleaned. Holding the wand too close to the surface may damage the object being cleaned. On the other hand, if the lance is too far away, optimum cleaning results will not be achieved. it´s always best to test the surface first to see if damage occurs when the lance is held too close.

- When cleaning car tires, the nozzle should be held at least 6" from the surface to avoid damage.

- Apply detergent at low pressure from the bottom up and pressure wash at high pressure from the top down.

- Always apply detergent to a dry surface and allow

1-3 minutes dwell time.

- To be environmentally safe,

• cleaning engines is only recommended where a suitable oil seperator is provided.

• clean facades, terraces and garden equipment with the high-pressure jet alone, without cleaning agent.

Note: With special accessories (not included) it can also be used for such jobs as removing rust and paint, for cleaning pipes, for pumping water and for applying plant protection chemicals.

These items are avaiable from most

SEARS RETAIL OUTLETS.

HOSE

Replace leaking fittings and hose. Do not attempt to repair, as they are designed to carry high pressure.

REPAIR PARTS

IMPORTANT:

The use of other than original spare parts could lead to faults and even to serious accidents if such parts are not properly manufactured or if they do not exactly replace the original part.

If only original spare parts are used, you can be sure that your unit will also work safely and without trouble in the future.

For replacement parts information and ordering call

1-800-366-7278.

DETERGENT DELIVERY

The flow rate is set at 0.2 GPH and is not adjustable.

No adjustments should be made to any parts that are sealed.

10

STORAGE

PROTECTION AGAINST FREEZING

The cleaner will be severely damaged if it is stored in a location where the temperature falls below freezing point without its first being emptied of water or flushed through with 50 % Anti-freeze solution.

The best protection against freezing is to store the cleaner and the accessories (high-pressure hose, trigger gun, spray lance) in a room where the temperature will not fall to the freezing point.

To empty the cleaner

· Disconnect the cleaner from the water supply.

· Disconnect the HP hose from the cleaner.

· The water will drain out.

A cleaner that may have frozen up should first be thawed before it is put back into use as otherwise damage may be caused.

Flushing with Anti-freeze solution

If the cleaner is to be out of operation for any length of time, it is advisable to flush it through with a glysantine solution as this provides a certain degree of protection against corrosion. A solution of 50 %

Anti-freeze, 50 % water is pumped through the cleaner.

HIGH-PRESSURE HOSE

Particular care should be paid to the hoses.

All high-pressure hoses must comply with the safety regulations and be marked with their working pressure, date of manufacture and name of the maker.

High-pressure hoses must not be kinked, twisted, crushed or damaged in any other way. Damaged high-pressure hoses may burst and are therefore dangerous and should be replaced without delay.

It is extremely dangerous to use high-pressure hoses of low durability or that have been inexpertly repaired and so you should only use high-pressure hoses that have been tested and marked.

Original high-pressure hoses meet these safety requirements.
