Question

How much throttle should I use?

I have a 3300 Northern Tool pressure washer with the cat pump. The question I have is when I am using the pressure washer should I have the throttle turned up to the maximum or can I use 1/2 to 3/4 throttle?

This pressure washer features an engine that should be run at full throttle. If the throttle is run at less than full, the pressure washer pump will not produce its max output(gpm and psi).
