There is no duty cycle time on the pressure washer. It can run as long as you keep oil and gas in the unit.

What is the advantage to the adjustable pressure feature? Can't the same thing be obtained by using a low-pressure nozzle?

An adjustable pressure washer allows you to adjust the pressure from next to nothing, all the way up to its rated maximum, 2,500PSI, 3,000PSI, 4,000PSI and so on.

So while it is true that you could simply attach a wide area nozzle to reduce the pressure, if your washer outputs say 4,000PSI, that is still enough pressure to strip paint with a wide nozzle!

I wouldn't even think of pressure washing house siding and or windows unless I could dial the pressure down to 1500PSI!

A low-pressure soap nozzle uses very low pressure, under 100 psi. Adjusting the pressure on the washer will allow up to 3000 when cleaning harder surfaces(concrete, brick, etc) and lower if working on softer surfaces(wood, siding, vehicles, etc). You can always stand further away if working with delicate surfaces as well.

Honda approves up to 10% alcohol with the GX160 engine. But, would still recommend non ethanol fuel or a fuel stabilizer formulated with an ethanol protectant.

No it does not. But the unit cycles down when not under load. Most small air-cooled engines like full throttle.

This cold water pressure washer includes a thermal protector which keeps the pump from overheating when the trigger on the gun is not pressed. The thermal protector will protect the pump for a short amount of time(30 seconds or less). If you won't be pressure washing for longer than that amount of time, it's necessary to shut off the pressure washer/engine.

answer 2
Always give your washer a shot every 30 seconds when running. It's a pain but the alternative of a damaged pump is $200 more painful. I almost never lend out my washer because of this. Even my wife knows the rule! So, shut it down during a move or follow the 30 second thing.

According to specs, yes, but warm and only up to 140 degrees. Anything over and I suspect you'll trash the pump!
