IMPORTANT PRECAUTIONS

GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
This product must be grounded. If it should
malfunction or breakdown, grounding
provides a path of least resistance for
electric current to reduce the risk of electric
shock. This product is equipped with a
cord having an equipment-grounding
conductor and a grounding plug. The plug
must be plugged into an appropriate outlet
that is properly installed and grounded in
accordance with all local codes and
ordinances.
DANGER – Improper connection of the
equipment-grounding conductor can result
in a risk of electrocution. Check with a
qualified electrician or service personnel if
you are in doubt as to whether the outlet is
properly grounded. Do not modify the plug
provided with the product – If it will not fit
the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by
a qualified electrician. Do not use any type
of adaptor with this product.
GROUND FAULT CIRCUIT
INTERRUPTER PROTECTION
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.
EXTENSION CORDS
Use only 3-wire extension cords that have
3-prong grounding-type plugs and 3-pole
cord connectors that accept the plug from
the product. Use only extension cords that
are intended for outdoor use. These
extension cords are identified by a marking
"Acceptable for use with outdoor appliances;
store indoors while not in use." Use only
extension cords having an electrical rating
not less than the rating of the product. Do
not use damaged extension cords. Examine
extension cord before using and replace if
damaged. Do not abuse extension cord and
do not yank on any cord to disconnect. Keep
cord away from heat and sharp edges.
Always disconnect the extension cord from
the receptacle before disconnecting the
product from the extension cord.
WARNING – To reduce the risk of
electrocution, keep all connections dry and
off the ground. Do not touch plug with wet
hands.
