SAFE OPERATION PRACTICES – Read First!

Safety Warnings

When using this product basic precautions should always be followed:

Read all the instructions before using the product.

FIRE HAZARD! Do not add fuel with the engine running. Do not operate if fuel has been spilled. Instead move the machine to a different location and avoid creating sparks.

Operate and fuel machine in a well ventilated area, free of devices featuring an open pilot or flame such as boilers, water heaters, etc.

High pressure jets can be dangerous if subject to misuse. The jet must not be directed at persons, animals, electrical devices or the machine itself.

Wear safety goggles.

Do not use acids, solvents, or any other flammable material in this product. These products can cause physical injuries to the operator and irreversible damage to the machine. If you have further questions regarding the use of recommended cleaning detergent, please call your Cub Cadet dealer.

The machine has hot surfaces which can cause burns. Operate the unit in a safe environment and away from children.

Do not allow the high pressure hose to come into contact with the muffler guard.

Do not leave the machine running unattended.

Learn how to stop the machine and release pressure quickly. Be thoroughly familiar with the controls.

Stay alert — watch what you are doing.

Do not operate the product when fatigued or under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Do not stand on unstable surfaces. Stand with both feet balanced at all times.

The Gun Safety Lock PREVENTS the trigger from accidentally being engaged. This safety feature DOES NOT lock the trigger in the on position.

Water Supply

(Cold Water Only)

Water hose must be at least 3/4 inch in diameter.

Flow rate of water supply must not fall below 2.5 GPM (gallons per minute).

Flow rate can be determined by running the water for one minute into an empty 5-gallon container.

The water supply temperature must not exceed 104°F/40°C.

Never use the pressure washer to draw in water contaminated with solvents, e.g. paint thinners, gasoline, oil, etc.

Always prevent debris from being drawn into the unit by using a clean water source.

We strongly recommend that this high pressure washer not be left running for periods of 5 minutes or longer without the trigger gun being engaged.

This high pressure washer is equipped with thermal protection to extend the life of your pressure washer. The thermal protector will automatically activate at a predetermined temperature ejecting hot water before resetting. This ensures that the pump does not become damaged.

Caution

Follow the maintenance instructions specified in the manual.

This machine has been designed for use with cleaning detergent supplied or recommended by the manufacturer. The use of other cleaning detergents may affect the operation of the machine and void the warranty.
