  • Use the right tool for the job. DO NOT attempt to force small equipment to do the work of larger industrial equipment. There are certain applications for which this equipment was designed. This product will be safer and do a better job at the capacity for which it was intended. DO NOT use this equipment for a purpose for which it was not intended.
  • Industrial or commercial applications must follow OSHA requirements.

WORK AREA SAFETY 

  • Inspect the work area before each use. Keep work area clean, dry, free of clutter, and well-lit. Cluttered, wet, or dark work areas can result in injury. Using the product in confined work areas may put you dangerously close to cutting tools and rotating parts.
  • Do not use the wand where there is a risk of causing a fire or an explosion; e.g., in the presence of flammable liquids, gases, or dust. The product can create sparks, which may ignite the flammable liquids, gases, or dust.
  • Do not allow the product to come into contact with an electrical source. The tool is not insulated and contact will cause electrical shock.
  • Keep children and bystanders away from the work area while operating the tool. Do not allow children to handle the product.
  • Be aware of all power lines, electrical circuits, water pipes, and other mechanical hazards in your work area. Some of these hazards may be hidden from your view and may cause personal injury and/or property damage if contacted.

  • Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing, dangling objects, or jewelry. Keep your hair, clothing and gloves away from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewelry, or long hair can be caught in moving parts. Air vents on the tool often cover moving parts and should be avoided.
  • Wear the proper personal protective equipment when necessary. Use ANSI Z87.1 compliant safety goggles (not safety glasses) with side shields, or when needed, a face shield. Use a dust mask in dusty work conditions. Also use non-skid safety shoes, hardhat, gloves, dust collection systems, and hearing protection when appropriate. This applies to all persons in the work area.
  • Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times.

CAUTION

WAND USE AND CARE 

  • Do not force the wand. Products are safer and do a better job when used in the manner for which they are designed. Plan your work, and use the correct product for the job.
  • Check for damaged parts before each use. Carefully check that the product will operate properly and perform its intended function. Replace damaged or worn parts immediately. Never operate the product with a damaged part.
  • Do not use a product with a malfunctioning switch. Any power tool that cannot be controlled with the power switch is dangerous and must be repaired by an authorized service representative before using.
  • Disconnect the power/air supply from the product and place the switch in the locked or off position before making any adjustments, changing accessories, or storing the tool. Such preventive safety measures reduce the risk of starting the tool accidentally.
  • Store the product when it is not in use. Store it in a dry, secure place out of the reach of children. Inspect the tool for good working condition prior to storage and before re-use.
  • Use only accessories that are recommended by the manufacturer for use with your product. Accessories that may be suitable for one product may create a risk of injury when used with another tool. Never use an accessory that has a lower operating speed or operating pressure than the tool itself.
  • Keep guards in place and in working order. Never operate the product without the guards in place.
  • Do not leave the tool running unattended.

Before Each Use

WARNING

Read, understand, and follow ALL safety guidelines and operation instructions prior to use.
To Use the Wand
Connect the outlet of your pressure washer to the inlet port of the trigger gun of the wand using appropriate quick couplers or fittings rated to handle high pressure.
The wand may be used fully retracted or fully extended, or any point in between. Caution must be used when the wand is extended as the reaction force of the nozzle spraying will cause the wand to flex. Make absolutely certain that there are no power lines or sources of electrical power within 10 feet of the lance at any time.
WARNING
Contact with power transmission lines can cause fatal electrocution!

Operating Instructions

WARNING

CAUTION
Do not extend or retract your extension wand while spraying or while under pressure. Stop the equipment and relieve any pressure before making adjustments to the extension wand or changing nozzles.
To Extend the Wand
Loosen the lock rings and pull the wand out to the desired length. Re-tighten the lock rings to hold the wand at the desired length.
To Retract the Wand
Loosen the lock rings and slide the extension segment into the wand until the desired length is reached. Re-tighten the lock rings to hold the extension segments in place.
To Begin Spraying
Start the sprayer. Raise the wand and keep the nozzle at least ten feet away from the surface to be cleaned. Squeeze the trigger to begin spraying, maintain stable footing, and move the wand in to the surface to be cleaned.

To Stop Spraying
Before releasing the trigger gun, move the nozzle at least ten feet away from the surface being cleaned and make sure you have solid footing. The wand will rebound when the trigger is released or if pressure is lost. When you are clear of the work surface and in a safe area, release the trigger.
CAUTION
USE EXTREME CAUTION when working on or near fragile surfaces as there may be enough force to damage surfaces or break windows. Keep clear of power lines.
