How to Use the Adjustable Nozzle

You now should know how to START your pressure washer and how to STOP it. The information in this section will tell you how to adjust the spray pattern and apply detergent or any other cleaning chemicals.

DANGER!

Never adjust spray pattern when spraying. Never put hands in front of nozzle to adjust spray pattern.

On the end of your spray gun is a nozzle that you can slide forward and backward and that you can also twist from side to side. With the adjustable nozzle you can adjust the spray pattern to be either high pressure or low pressure.

You can also adjust the spray so it is concentrated in a stream pattern or expanded into a fan pattern.

• Slide the nozzle forward when you wish to adjust the spray to low pressure mode (Figure 13). Slide the nozzle backward to achieve high pressure.

Figure 13 - Using the Adjustable Nozzle.

Slide nozzle backward for high pressure mode.

Slide nozzle forward for low pressure mode and detergent application.

Twist nozzle counterclockwise for fan spray pattern.

Twist nozzle clockwise for narrow spray pattern.

• Point the nozzle toward the ground and press the trigger to test the pattern (Figure 14).

Figure 14— Testing the Spray Pattern

• Hang the detergent solution on hook of the wireform on the handle (Figure 15).

Figure 15 — Insert the Small Filter Into Container of

Cleaning Solution

• Twisting the nozzle adjusts the spray pattern from a narrow pattern to a fan pattern.

• For most effective cleaning, keep spray nozzle between

8 to 24 inches away from cleaning surface.

• If you get the spray nozzle too close, especially using high pressure mode, you may damage the cleaning surface.

Do Not get closer than 6 inches when cleaning automobile tires.

Applying Detergent with the

Adjustable Nozzle

IMPORTANT: Use soaps designed specifically for

pressure washers. Household detergents could damage the pump.

IMPORTANT: You must attach all hoses before you start the engine. Starting the engine without all the hoses connected and without the water turned ON will damage the pump.

To apply detergent follow these steps:

• Review the use of adjustable nozzles on page 9.

• Prepare the detergent solution as required by the job.

• Place small filter of the clear, detergent siphoning tube into the detergent container.

CAUTION! Keep the plastic injector tube from coming in contact with the hot muffler. This will damage the plastic tube. When inserting the filter into a cleaning agent bottle, route the tube so as to keep it from inadvertently contacting the hot muffler.

• Slide the adjustable nozzle forward to low pressure mode. Detergent cannot be applied with nozzle in high pressure position.

IMPORTANT: Detergent cannot be applied without the water source turned on.

• Make sure garden hose is connected to water inlet.

Check that high pressure hose is connected to spray gun and pump. Start engine.

• Apply detergent to a dry surface, starting from the bottom and working up.

• Allow the detergent to soak in between 3-5 minutes before washing and rinsing. Reapply as needed to prevent surface from drying.

• For washing, start at lower portion of area to be washed and work upward, using long, even overlapping strokes.

Generac Portable Products 2,400 PSI High Pressure Washer

Pressure Washer Rinsing

WARNING!

Be extremely careful if you must use the pressure washer from a ladder, scaffolding or any other relatively unstable location. Pressure in a running washer builds as you climb. When you press the trigger, the recoil from the initial spray could force you to fall. The high pressure spray could also force you to fall if you are too close to the cleaning surface.

For Rinsing:

• Slide nozzle backward to high pressure and wait for detergent to clear.

• Keep the spray gun a safe distance from the area you plan to spray.

• Apply a high pressure spray to an small area and then check the surface for damage. If no damage is found, you can assume it is okay to continue cleaning.

• Start at top of area to be rinsed, working down with same overlapping strokes as you used for cleaning.

NOTE: You can also stop detergent from flowing by simply removing siphon from bottle.

Automatic Cool Down System

(also known as Thermal Relief)

If you run the engine on your pressure washer for

3-5 minutes without pressing the trigger on the spray gun, circulating water in the pump can reach a temperature between 140–145°F. When the water reaches this temperature, the automatic cool down system engages and cools the pump by discharging the warm water onto

the ground. This system prevents internal damage to the pump.

LIMITED PRESSURE WASHER WARRANTY

GENERAC PORTABLE PRODUCTS (hereafter referred to as the COMPANY) warrants to the original retail purchaser the pressure washer manufactured by the COMPANY to be free from defects in material and workmanship for the period(s) set forth below from the date of original purchase. This warranty is not transferable. The term “original purchaser” means the person for whom the pressure washer is originally purchased.

1 year (does not apply to commercial or rental applications)

CONSUMER* COMMERCIAL*

Engine: Warranted solely by

Engine Manufacturer

Engine Manufacturer

Pump: 1 year 90 days

* NOTE: For the purpose of this warranty, “consumer” use means personal residential household use by original purchaser. “Commercial” use means all other uses, including rental, construction, commercial and income producing purposes. Once a pressure washer has experienced commercial use, it shall thereafter be considered a commercial use pressure washer for the purposes of this warranty.

During said warranty period, the COMPANY will, at its option, repair or replace any part which, upon examination by the

COMPANY or COMPANY-authorized dealers, is found to be defective under normal use and service**. All transportation costs under warranty, including return to the factory if necessary, are to be borne by the purchaser and prepaid by the purchaser.

** NORMAL WEAR: As with all mechanical devices, pressure washers need 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 pressure washer pump.

This warranty does not include: Used products and demonstration equipment. Parts, such as GUNS, HOSES, WANDS,

NOZZLES or other wear items such as quick couplers, oil, gauges, belts, o-rings, filters, pump packing, etc. Pumps which have been run without water supplied. Damage or malfunctions resulting from accidents, abuse, modifications, alterations, or improper servicing. Freezing or chemical deterioration. Normal maintenance such as adjustments, fuel system cleaning and obstruction (due to chemical, dirt, carbon or lime, etc.).

THIS WARRANTY IS IN PLACE OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, SPECIFICALLY,

THE COMPANY MAKES NO OTHER WARRANTIES AS TO MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A

PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE DURATION OF ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES WHICH CANNOT BE

DISCLAIMED IS LIMITED TO THE TIME PERIOD AS SPECIFIED IN THE EXPRESS WARRANTY. LIABILITY

FOR CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR SPECIAL DAMAGES UNDER ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES IS

EXCLUDED, EVEN IF SUCH DAMAGES ARE A DIRECT RESULT OF THE COMPANY'S NEGLIGENCE. THE

COMPANY ALSO DISCLAIMS ANY RESPONSIBILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL

DAMAGES, SUCH AS THE LOSS OF TIME OR THE USE OF THE POWER EQUIPMENT, OR ANY

COMMERCIAL LOSS DUE TO THE FAILURE OF THE EQUIPMENT. ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES ARE

LIMITED TO THE DURATION OF THIS WRITTEN

WARRANTY.

Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, or the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights and you may also have other rights, which vary from state to state.

For service, see your nearest COMPANY-authorized warranty service facility or call 1-877-544-0982. Warranty service can be performed only by a COMPANY-authorized service facility. This warranty will not apply to service at any other facility.

At the time of requesting warranty service, evidence of original purchase date must be presented.
