WARNING

Running engine gives off carbon monoxide, an odorless, colorless, poison gas.

Breathing carbon monoxide will cause nausea, fainting or death.

Some chemicals or detergents may be harmful if inhaled or ingested, causing severe nausea, fainting or poisoning.

Operate pressure washer ONLY outdoors.

Keep exhaust gas from entering a confined area through windows, doors, ventilation intakes or other openings.

DO NOT operate pressure washer inside any building or enclosure.

Use a respirator or mask whenever there is a chance that vapors may be inhaled.

Read all instructions with mask so you are certain the mask will provide the necessary protection against inhaling harmful vapors.

WARNING

Use of pressure washer can create puddles and slippery surfaces.

High pressure spray could cause you to fall if you are too close to the cleaning surface.

Keep spray nozzle between 8 to 24 inches away from cleaning surface.

Operate this unit on a stable surface.

The cleaning area should have adequate slopes and drainage to reduce the possibility of a fall due to slippery surfaces.

Be extremely careful if you must use the pressure washer from a ladder, scaffolding or any other relatively unstable location.

Firmly grasp spray gun with both hands when using high pressure spray to avoid injury if gun kicks back.

WARNING

Rapid retraction of starter cord (kickback) will pull hand and arm toward engine faster than you can let go.

Broken bones, fractures, bruises or sprains could result.

When starting engine, pull cord slowly until resistance is felt and then pull rapidly to avoid kickback.

If engine starts and fails to continue to run or if increased resistance is felt during starting pull attempts, squeeze trigger on spray gun.
