You have to check all your gasoline and your oil. It's important to know where the gasoline is, looks like we need a little gas today. Also know where the oil is, the oil check is right here. Generally you never want to overfill a pressure washer or anything with oil. There's plenty of oil in there. We'll make sure that?s back in there and sealed. The spark plug, I did run this machine yesterday, I'm sure the spark plug is fine as long as it starts up. You also want to know where the on/off switch it, on off. In case of an emergency and you have to shut it down immediately you need to know where the on/off switch is. I normally like to pre-start the machine before I turn the water on just to make sure that it's going to run. I let it run for maybe 5 - 10 seconds and then I turn the water on. You got to run these with water because it cools the engine because it does throw off a little bit of heat. You also want to check the tires. To much air in the tires will create some vibration and I've seen pressure washers skip away, so tire pressure is good. I think we're about ready to go. We're going to start with the top and go to the east.
