Two Minute Rule
The machine may be tipped forward to facilitate
access for cleaning or service, but no longer than 2
If the machine is held in this position for too long, the
engine can be damaged by gasoline draining into the
crankcase. Should this happen, perform an extra oil
change on the engine. Remove the spark plug and
turn the engine over a few revolutions with the starter
handle before starting the engine again.
Regular cleaning and washing will increase the
machine's lifespan. Make it a habit to clean the
machine directly after use, before the dirt sticks.
Check before rinsing that the fuel tank lid is properly
in place to avoid getting water in the tank.
Use caution when using high-pressure spray because
warning decals, instruction signs and the engine can
be damaged. Do not exceed 70 bar/1000 PSI water
pressure when cleaning.
Lubricate the machine after cleaning. This is
particularly important if the machine is to be stored.
