GENERAL MAINTENANCE

RECOMMENDATIONS

The pressure washer warranty does not cover items that have been subjected to operator abuse or negligence.To

receive full value from the warranty, the operator must maintain the pressure washer as instructed in this manual.

• Some adjustments will need to be made periodically to properly maintain your pressure washer.

• All maintenance in this manual and the engine owner’s manual should be made at least once each season.

• Once a year you should clean or replace the spark plug, clean or replace the air filter and check the spray gun and adjustable nozzle extension assembly for wear. A new spark plug and clean air filter assure proper fuel-air mixture and help your engine run better and last longer.
