Installation Guide

Using the adjustable spray wand
mWARNING! High-pressure jets can be dangerous if
subject to misuse. The jet must not be directed at persons,
pets, live electrical equipment, or the appliance itself.
1. The washer is equipped with an adjustable nozzle.
2. The water pressure can be adjusted from low pressure (–)
to high pressure (+) by turning the pressure adjustment
knob. The nozzle tip can be adjusted from pencil spray
(wide open tip) to fan spray (narrow tip) by turning the
nozzle tip adjustment knob (Fig. 13).
mWARNING! Do not adjust the nozzle while the trigger
is squeezed. Failure to do so could result in damage.
Recommended cleaning procedure
1. For additional cleaning power, a detergent spray
bottle attachment (Model SPX1DT) is available as an
add-on accessory for the SPX1500. Visit
to purchase.
mCAUTION! Only use detergents specically
recommended for use with pressure washers.
2. Load the bottle with a suitable, non-corrosive detergent
and attach it the spray gun (Fig. 14).
3. With the nozzle tip adjusted to a low-pressure fan spray,
apply detergent from the bottom to the top of the dry
surface to be cleaned. Applying detergent in this manner
will dissolve dirt most eectively.
NOTE: Wetting the surface rst is not recommended as it
dilutes the detergent and reduces its cleaning ability.
4. Allow the detergent to remain on the surface for a short
time before rinsing with the pressure washer. Do not allow
the detergent to dry on the surface.

4. Disconnect the garden hose from the water inlet on
the unit.
5. Disconnect the high-pressure hose connection on the
trigger gun handle.
6. Release the trigger and engage the gun safety lock.
mWARNING! Turn o the water supply and squeeze the
trigger to depressurize the unit. Failure to do so could result in
personal injury due to discharge of high-pressure water.
