Before Starting The Engine
To operate the engine you will need to do the following.
Engine Oil
Your unit has been shipped without oil in the engine. A
bottle of SAE 30 weight oil is included in the carton.
Remove oil dip stick located on top of the engine. Oil
capacity is about 20 ounces of oil. The oil dip stick is
clearly marked with a line that tells you when unit has
enough oil. To check oil, place dipstick into oil fill.
Tighten dipstick then remove. Do not fill above this
point. Pour slowly.
NOTE: When adding oil to the engine crankcase, use a
high quality detergent oil classified “For Service SF, SG,
SH”, rated SAE 30 weight. Use no special additives.
Select the oil’s viscosity grade according to your ex-
pected operating temperatures.
Although multi-viscosity oils (5W30, 10W30, etc.)
improve starting in cold weather, these multi-viscosity
oils will result in increased oil consumption when used
above 40°F. Check your engine oil level more frequently
to avoid possible damage from running low on oil. Oil
sump capacity is 20 ounces.
Your pressure washer engine is 4 cycle. Use unleaded
fuel only.
