The P3500PWA is a powerful portable petrol pressure washer by Position One (P1) Power Equipment. The Pressure Washer is powered by a 212cc 4 stroke petrol engine which produces 7hp and 5.6kW of output power.
This high-performance petrol jet washer is perfect for home and DIY use. If you have a patio or driveway to clean, this is the machine for the job.
The three-cylinder high-pressure axial pump is fitted with a thermal protection safety valve. If the pressure washer is run without the trigger gun being squeezed open and water flowing through the pump, then the water in the pump will recirculate around the pump and heat up. To prevent the pump from overheating and damaging the seals the thermal protection valve will open and discharge the hot water, which is replaced with fresh cool water. If possible, switch the engine off when not pressure washing. This saves fuel and wear and tear.
Select the required nozzle and be sure to push it firmly into the quick release fitting on the lance. For normal pressure washing hold the nozzle about 30cm from the object being pressure washed. To use the detergent function, place the black nozzle in the lance and the pressure washer will draw the liquid detergent from the built-in tank. This is a low-pressure nozzle, so when the soap has been applied, change back to the high-pressure nozzle to finish cleaning.
The Axial pump is driven by a 212cc 7hp OHV engine. The OHV engines benefit from low-end torque, fuel-saving and emissions-cutting OHV technology and more compact size when compared to an OHC engine.
