DANGER

RISK OF INJURY FROM SPRAY

WHAT CAN HAPPEN

HOW TO PREVENT IT

High velocity fluid spray can cause objects to break, propelling particles at high speed.

Light or unsecured objects can become hazardous projectiles.

Always wear ANSI approved Z87 safety glasses.Wear protective clothing to protect against accidental spraying.

Never point wand at, or spray people or animals.

Always secure trigger lock when wand is not in service to prevent accidental operation.

Never permanently secure trigger in pull back (open) position.

The powerful spray from your pressure washer is capable of causing damage to surfaces such as wood, glass, automobile paint, auto striping and trim, and delicate objects such as flowers and shrubs. Before spraying,

check the item to be cleaned to assure yourself that it is strong enough to resist damage from the force of the spray. Avoid the use of the concentrated spray stream except for very strong surfaces like concrete and steel.

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS

GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS

This product must be grounded. If it should malfunction or breakdown, grounding provides a path of least resistance for electric current to reduce the risk of electric shock. This product is equipped with a cord having an equipment-groundingconductor and a grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.

Improper connection of the equipment-groundingconductor can result in risk of electrocution. Check with a qualified

electrician or service personnel if you are in doubt as to whether the outlet is properly grounded. Do not modify the plug provided with the product-ifit will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician. Do not use any type of adapter with this product.

EXTENSION CORDS

Use additional length of high pressure hose instead of extension cords to avoid voltage drop and power loss to the motor, and to prevent overheating. DO NOT USE EXTENSION CORDS. NOTE: The use of additional length of high pressure hose will lower the pressure washer's psi below 1600.

GROUND FAULT CIRCUIT INTERRUPTER PROTECTION

This pressure washer is provided with a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) built into the plug of the power supply cord. This device provides additional protection from the risk of electric shock. Should replacement of the plug or cord become necessary, use only identical replacement parts that include GFCI protection.
