When it comes to extending the life of a pressure washer, regular maintenance pays off! Especially when it’s something easy, like checking the ENGINE CRANKCASE OIL!


The crankcase oil lubricates the engine components and keeps things running smoothly. Low oil levels could cause the oil to overheat, break down and lose its lubrication. Same as with the pump oil, a loss in lubrication could also result in heavier wear, damaged components, and ultimately, a shortened use capability. Please check your owner’s manual for the specific maintenance requirements of your machine.
