If any doubt arises, please contact the local authorities.  It is not allowed to clean asbestos-containing surfaces with high pressure.  This high pressure washer must not be used at tempera- tures below 0°C. WARNING! Inadequate extension cables can be dangerous. Cables on drums should always be com- pletely unwinded to prevent the cable from overheating. If an extension cable is used, the plug and the socket must be waterproof and comply with the below-mentioned requirements for length and cable dimen- sions. 1.0 mm² max. 12.5 m 1.5 mm² max. 20 m 2.5 mm² max. 30 m  If the electric cable is damaged, it must be re- placed by the manufacturer or his service agent or simi- larly qualified person in order to avoid a hazard. Mains power connection The following should be ob- served when connecting the high pressure washer to the electric installation:  The electric installation shall be made by a certified elec- trician and comply with IEC 364.  It is recommended that the electric supply to this appli- ance should include either a residual current device that will interrupt the supply if the leakage current to earth ex- ceeds 30 mA for 30 ms. Water connection  Connection to the public mains according to regula- tions.  Inlet hose can be connected to the water mains with a max. inlet pressure of 10 bars. This high pressure washer is only allowed to be connected with the drinking water mains, when an appropri- ate backflow pre- venter has been installed, Type BA according to EN 1717. The back- flow preventer can be ordered under number 106411177. The length of the hose between the backflow preventer and the high pres- sure washer must be at least 10 metres to absorb possible pressure peaks (min diameter ½ inch). Operation by suction (for ex- ample from a rainwater vessel) is carried out without backflow preventer. Recommended suc- tion set: 126411387. As soon as water has flown through the BA valve, this water is not considered to be drinking water any more. IMPORTANT! Only use wa- ter without any impurities. If there is a risk of running sands in the inlet water (i.e. from your own well), an additional filter should be mounted. Safety devices  The unloader valve can re- duce pressure if it exceeds pre-set values. Locking device on spray handle (7a) (see illustration at the end of this manual): The spray handle features a locking device. When the pawl is activated, the spray handle cannot be operated. Thermal sensor: A thermal sensor protects the motor against overloading. The machine will restart after a few minutes when the thermal sen- sor has cooled.
