A rugged job site can make pressure washing your machines a necessity, but today’s lifts are equipped with sophisticated electronics that can be sensitive to pressure and water. Beyond trying to avoid washing electrical or electronic components, we recommend the following if you need to wash an area containing sensitive parts:

  • Use a maximum pressure of 750 psi (52 BAR)
  • Maintain a minimum distance of 12 in. away from these components
  • Avoid directly spraying components
  • Limit any secondary water exposure to brief periods to avoid saturation
