4 Extension cables should be of a watertight construction and comply with the below-men- tioned requirements for length and cable dimensions. 1.0 mm² max. 12.5 m 1.5 mm² max. 20 m 2.5 mm² max. 30 m Cable connections should be kept dry and off the ground. Mains power connection The following should be ob- served when connecting the high pressure washer to the electric installation: Only connect the machine to an installation with earth con- nection. The electric installation shall be made by a certified elec- trician. It is strongly recommended that the electric supply to this machine should include a re- sidual current device (GFCI). Water connection Connection to the public mains according to regu- lations. This high pres- sure washer is only allowed to be connected with the drinking water mains, when an appro- priate backflow preventer has been installed, Type BA accord- ing to EN 1717. The backflow preventer can be ordered under number 106411177. The length of the hose between the back- flow preventer and the high pressure washer must be at least 10 metres to absorb pos- sible pressure peaks (min diam- eter 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. Repair and maintenance WARNING! Always remove the electric plug from the socket be- fore carrying out maintenance work on the machine. Safety devices Locking device on spray gun (7a) (see foldout at the end of this manual): The spray gun features a lock- ing device. When the pawl is activated, the spray gun 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. Pressure safety device An integrated hydraulic safety valve protects the system from excessive pressure. 2 Description This high-pressure washer has been developed for domestic use within: - Car, motorbike, boat, cara- van, trailer, patio/drive/flag- stones, woodwork, brickwork, barbecue, garden furniture, lawn mower Section 5 describes the use of the high-pressure washer for vaious cleaning jobs.

10 5 Fields of application and working methods 5.1 General Efficient high presure cleaning is achieved by following a few guide- lines, combined with your own personal experience of specific cleaning tasks. Accessories and detergents, when correctly cho- sen, can increase the efficiency of your pressure washer. Here is some basic information about cleaning. 5.1.1 Detergent and foam Foam or detergent should be applied onto dry surfaces so that the chemical product is in direct contact with the dirt. Detergents are applied from bottom to top, for example on a car bodywork, in order to avoid "super clean" areas, where the detergent collects in higher concentration and streams downwards. Let the detergent work for several minutes before rinsing but never let it dry on the surface be- ing cleaned. Note: It is important that the detergents do not dry up. Otherwise the surfac that has to be cleaned can be damaged. 5.1.2 Mechanical effect In order to break down tough layers of dirt, additional mechanical effect may be required. Special wash brushes offer this supplemen- tary effect that cuts through dirt (especially by car washing).

11 5.2 Typical fields of application Below you will find a description of a lot of cleaning tasks which can be solved by a pressure washer from Nilfisk in association with accessories and detergents. Task Accessories ‘Click & Clean’ Cleaning method Car Car nozzle, auto brush, underchassis nozzle, Foam sprayer, Car Combi Cleaner 1. Apply Car Combi Cleaner with the foam sprayer. Always start from the bottom and work upwards. Let Car Combi Cleaner act for at least 5 min. 2. Wash the car with the car nozzle, which has been optimized for quick and gentle cleaning of enamelled surfaces (the jet is wider and not so sharp). Start at the front of the car and work back- wards to avoid water from penetrating by the door mouldings. 3. Use the brush for removal of traffic film which is not removed by the nozzle. If the car is very dirty, apply Car Combi Cleaner again. 4. Attach the undercarriage nozzle and clean undercarriage and wheel arches. 5. Remove water from the surface of the car with the scraper on the car brush. Make sure that all grains of sand etc. have been removed before using the scraper. Wipe with a wash lea- ther where the scraper cannot reach. Rims, alu- minium Rim brush, auto nozzle, atomizer, Alu Cleaner Apply Alu Cleaner with an automizer. Let it act for approx. 5 min. and wash with the rim brush. For steel rims, use Car Com- bi Cleaner. Use the foam sprayer and wash with rim brush. Be careful! The high pressure jet may damage the tyres. Flag- stones, concrete floors and other hard surfaces Powerspeed® nozzle, Stone & Wood Cleaner, Patio Cleaner Wash towards outlets or the like. On surfaces with moss or algae you may start by applying Stone & Wood Cleaner with the foam sprayer. Wash before the soap dries. Another more effective and quicker method is to use the Patio Cleaner. Thus you will also avoid splashes. Garden furniture, wood Wood Cleaner Garden brush Apply Wood Cleaner and wash before the soap dries. NOTE: Use the garden brush to clean off the dirt. Brickwork, Wood work Powerspeed® nozzle, Stone & Wood Cleaner, Patio Cleaner Same method as for flagstones, but be careful - bad joints and wood may be damaged by high pressure.You may choose only to use the Tornado® nozzle. Adjust the distance (pressure) to the quality of the joints and the wood. Patio Cleaner can also be used on vertical surfaces. Gutter Underchassis spray lance Wash the gutter with the nozzle. Always wash towards downpipes. Beware not to spray under the roofing. Cleaning of drain pipes, out- lets, down pipes etc. Tube cleaner Push the tube cleaner approx. ½ m (to mark) into a tube or drain and activate the trigger of the spray handle. The nozzle opening turning backwards will pull the cleaner through the tube. The nozzle will break down the „plug“ and flush the dirt backwards. Rust, paint Water/sandblasting equipment Mount the water/sand blasting equipment and rust and paint is efficiently and quickly removed. Beware not to damage the surface to be sandblasted. Green- house Tornado® PR nozzle brush, Stone & Wood Cleaner Wash with high pressure and maybe a brush.You may use Stone & Wood Cleaner to remove moss and algae. Garden tools, lawn mover Tornado® PR nozzle, Power- speed® nozzle, multiangle adaptor, Metal Cleaner Rinse the worst dirt off with the nozzle. Apply Metal Cleaner with the foam sprayer and let it act for approx. 5 min. Wash with the nozzle.You may use the multiangle adaptor for hard to get at areas to avoid splashing.
