Pressure Washing and Electronics
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 avoiding washing electrical or electronic components, JLG Industries recommends the following in the event that you need to wash an area containing sensitive components:
- Use a maximum pressure of 750 psi (52 BAR)
- Maintain a minimum distance of 12 inches away from these components
- Avoid directly spraying components, and limit any secondary water exposure to brief periods to avoid saturation
