Use and Care Manual

mWARNING! Water that has own through backow
preventers is considered to be non-potable.
mWARNING! During cleaning, maintenance or when
replacing parts, the machine must be disconnected from its
power source by removing the plug from the socket outlet.
mWARNING! High pressure hoses, ttings, and couplings
are important for the safe operation of the appliance. Use
only hoses, ttings, and couplings recommended by the
Check for damaged parts – Do not use the appliance if the
supply cord or other important parts of the appliance are
damaged (e.g. safety devices, high pressure hoses, trigger
mWARNING! If an extension cord is used, the plug and
socket must be of watertight construction.
mWARNING! Inadequate extension cords can be
This high pressure washer must not be used at
temperatures below 32ºF (0°C).
mWARNING! Power cords on drums should always be
completely unwound to prevent the cord from overheating.
Power cord connections should be kept dry and off the
Comply with the below requirements for length and cord
specs (Table 1):
If the power cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the
manufacturer or his service agent or similarly qualied
person in order to avoid a hazard.
Keep the machine on a stable, at surface during operation,
handling, transportation, and storage. Sudden overturn of
the machine can cause bodily injury.
In the event of an accident or breakdown, switch off the
machine immediately. (If contact with detergent occurs,
rinse with an abundance of clean water.)
Electrical Safety
ATTENTION: If there are problems with the electrical
MAINS, short voltage drops may appear when starting the
equipment. This can, in turn, inuence other equipment (e.g.
cause a lamp to blink). If the MAINS-IMPEDANCE Zmax <
0.335 OHM, such disturbances are not expected. (In case
of assistance, contact your local supply authority for further
mWARNING! Electrical Shock Hazard
Before starting up your machine, please check it carefully for
any defects. If you nd any, do not start up your machine and
contact your distributor.
The following should be observed when connecting the high
pressure washer to the electric installation:
The electric supply connection should be performed by a
qualied person.
The electric supply to this appliance should include either
a residual current device that will interrupt the supply if the
leakage current to the earth exceeds 30 mA for 30 ms or a
device that will interrupt the earth circuit (GFCI).
IMPORTANT: Only use water without any impurities.
If there is a risk of running sand into the inlet water (i.e. from
your own well), an additional lter should be installed.
Safety devices
The unloader valve can reduce pressure if it exceeds preset
values. The spray gun features a locking device. When the lock
is activated, the spray gun cannot be operated.
Thermal sensor – A thermal sensor protects the motor
against overloading. The machine will restart after a few
minutes when the thermal sensor has cooled.
Double insulation – In a double-insulated product, two
systems of insulation are provided instead of grounding.
No grounding means are provided on a double-insulated
product, nor should a means for grounding be added to
the product. Servicing a double-insulated product requires
extreme care and knowledge of the system, and should be
performed only by a qualied service person. Replacement
parts for a double-insulated product must be identical to the
parts they replace. A double-insulated product is marked
with the words “DOUBLE INSULATION” or “DOUBLE
INSULATED”. The symbol “
” may also be marked on the
Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) – 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.
Risk of electrocution
Inspect cord before using.
Do not use if cord is damaged.
