pressure. Only use this nozzle when using a detergent or cleaning solution.
ADJUSTING WATER PRESSURE
The water pressure is regulated by the throttle lever (A) Fig.10. Moving the throttle lever
towards the left will increase the engine speed and thus increasing the water pressure. Moving
the throttle lever towards the right will decrease the engine speed and thus decreasing the
DETERGENT INJECTOR (LOW PRESSURE)
This high pressure washer is intended for use only with car wash or pressure washer
detergents with mild soaps. Only use detergents that are compatible with the aluminum
and brass parts of the pressure washer pump. Do not use powdered soaps, they may clog
the injection system. Follow the detergent manufacturer directions. The use of detergent
is advantageous, it ensures a quick way to soak the dirt before spraying.
To set-up the detergent injector, install it to the siphon injector fitting on the pump as
described in assembly instructions Fig.3. Then follows these instructions;
1) Pour the contents of your detergent into a container (A) Fig.11 and place it next to the
pressure washer pump.
2) When using a detergent, the stainless steel wand must be fitted with the detergent
nozzle (black). This can be done by pulling the coupler ring (B) Fig.9 backwards and
inserting the detergent nozzle, release the coupler ring to lock it in place.
3) Inspect the detergent injector filter (B) Fig.11, make sure it is not clogged. Then place
it all the way to the bottom of the container. The detergent will automatically mix with
4) If the throttle lever (A) Fig.10 is not in the fast position, the injection of the detergent
may be decreased or stop completely, in this case, move the throttle lever towards the left to increase engine speed and pressure.
Important Note: When you have finished using the detergent injector system, remove the injector filter from the detergent container and place
it in a different larger container containing only clean water and let the pressure washer run until you no longer notice detergent coming out of
USING THE PRESSURE WASHER TO CLEAN
Most cleaning jobs can be made by using only water, but it is also advantageous to use detergent to penetrate and remove the dirt more
effectively. When using soap or a detergent, make sure the surface to clean is dry. Wetting the surface first is not recommended, it will dilute the
detergent and will reduce the cleaning effectiveness. Avoid hot surfaces or use in direct sunlight, this will minimize the chances of the detergent
damaging the painted surface. Do not let the detergent dry or it may damage the painted surface.
Allow the detergent to remain on the surface for a short time before rinsing with clean water under high pressure. Position the tip of the wand 6”
to 8” away from the surface to clean at a 45
Right after the cleaning operation is done, you can use this pressure washer to apply wax. Place the injector filter into the wax container and
apply the wax sparingly in an even pattern over the wet surface. Once done, remove the injector filter from the container and rinse off the excess
wax. Wipe dry to reduce water spotting.
This pressure washer is equipped with a water inlet screen (A) Fig.12. This water screen must
be kept clean at all times or else it will restrict the water flow to the pressure washer and may
damage the pump. Remove the quick connect coupling from the water inlet, remove and clean
screen. Never operate this pressure washer without the water inlet screen in place.
OPERATION & MAINTENANCE
MAINTENANCE & STORAGE
Engine Oil Replacement
Engine oil should be replaced after the first 20 hours of operation or after the first month of use, it
should be replaced every 100 hours or 6 months after. To replace engine oil; Loosen the oil gauge
dipstick (A) Fig.13. Place an oil pan underneath drain hex. bolt (B), remove hex. bolt (B) and drain
oil. Once all the oil has completely drained, retighten the hex. bolt (B).
Recommended Engine Oil
It is recommended to use SAE10W30 4-stroke gasoline engine oil. Fill with clean engine oil through
the oil gauge dipstick hole to recommended level.
Inspecting, Replacing or Cleaning Spark Plug
The spark plug should be checked every 100 hours of operation or every 6 months. To replace or
clean spark plug;
1) Dismantle the spark plug wire (A) Fig.14 by pulling it off the spark plug (B). Using the supplied
spark plug wrench, undo the spark plug by turning counterclockwise.
2) Check to see if there is carbon sediment build-up, if so just remove it. If the carbon sediment is
excessive, replace the spark plug.
3) Measure the electrodes clearance using a feeler gauge. The spark plug electrode clearance
should be between 0.7-0.8mm. If the clearance exceeds 0.8mm, replace the spark plug. The
original spark plug supplied is an LD F6TC, you can replace it with an NGK BP6ES spark plug or
4) Reinstall spark plug in the reverse order.
Pump Oil Replacement
Pump oil should be annually replaced with approx. 4.7 fl. oz. (138ml) of SAE 300 non detergent oil.
To replace pump oil, undo oil bolt (A) Fig.15, and drain pump oil. Once oil has completely drained,
fill with recommended oil. Retighten oil bolt.
Pressure Washer Storage
If you plan on storing your pressure washer for an extended period of time, the following steps
should be followed;
1) Add fuel stabilizer to fuel tank to minimize the formation of fuel gum deposits during storage.
2) Run engine at least 5 minutes after adding stabilizer to allow it to enter the fuel system.
NOTE: If a fuel stabilizer is not used, all gasoline must be drained from the tank and carburetor to
prevent gum deposits from forming on these parts and causing possible malfunction of the engine.
3) Turn fuel shut-off valve to the “OFF” position, remove drain hex. bolt (A) Fig.16 from the
4) Now turn fuel shut-off valve to the “ON” position and drain the fuel from the tank, carburetor and
5) Reposition the carburetor drain hex. bolt once the fuel is completely drained.
6) Drain engine oil from engine as described in “Engine Oil Replacement”.
7) Pour approximately one teaspoon of engine oil through the spark plug hole and pull the recoil
starter slowly until you feel increased pressure which indicates the piston is on its compression
stroke and leave it in this position. This closes both the intake and exhaust valves to prevent the
inside of the cylinder from rusting.
8) Cover the pressure washer and store it in a clean, well ventilated and dry place.
Preventing Freezing Damage
If your pressure washer is subjected to freezing temperatures, damage could occur.This type of
is not covered under warranty. To avoid possible damage, a small amount of antifreeze
can be used. Place the unit on its side with the water inlet facing upwards, pour 1/4 cup of antifreeze
into the water inlet. Disconnect spark plug wire, then pull recoil starter several times to circulate the
antifreeze in the pump system. Reconnect spark plug wire. It is also important to make sure the wand
and all hoses are disconnected and drained of all water or they may burst. When taking pressure
washer out of storage, run water through the system until it runs clear.
