1. Putting the Wheels
Greenworks 2000 PSI pressure washer comes with 10-inch plastic wheels for easy movability. Attach both plastic wheels simply with pin clip locks to the body.
There are 2 washers and 1 pin for each wheel. Put 1 washer on the wheel side and another one on the body side before inserting the clip.

Now it’s time to attach its handle to the main body. Before fixing the handle, attach the electric cord holder, pressure hose holder, and spray tips holder with the handle with screws. Now handle is ready to be attached to the pressure washer body.
3. Get The Wand and Hose Ready
Now attach the spray gun handle and lance tightly with each other with your hands. There will be a plastic cap at the one end of the lance, remove it. Put this end of the lance in the gun and screw it tightly with your hand. Don’t over-tight it.

After assembling the lance, connect your pressure washer hose to the spray gun at its one end and to the pressure washer outer at one end. There is also a plastic cap on the gun where you have to attach the pressure hose, so remove it.
The pressure washer outer for the pressure hose is located at the back of the Greenworks 2000 PSI pressure washer.
Note: Again, these joints must also be tight enough that there should not be a minor leak. If just air is leaking from these joints, it can cause a low water pressure problem in your pressure washer.

4. Connect Water Source With The Greenworks 2000 Pressure
Connect your garden hose to the inlet of your pressure washer and tighten it with your hands.
Now, this is the point where you think are ready to blast away dirt and grime from your car or other surfaces. But don’t just start your machine now. It’s very dangerous for your machine.
Dry Pump Can Be Dangerous
Don’t just run your pressure washer dry. It can severely damage the pump of your GreenWorks Pressure washer.
So What To Do?
You just have to pull out your wand and press the trigger before starting the pressure washer. You will see water flowing from the lance at the standard pressure like in the garden hose.
This process will lubricate the pump and the whole pressure washer system. Now after running water for 20-30 seconds you can release the trigger. If water is flowing consistently the whole time, you are ready to go to the next step.

5. Select the Required Tip or Nozzle
This part is a little tricky for many pressure washer users. Different pressure washer nozzles are designed for various tasks. Moreover, nozzles can also change the pressure of water.
So it is also important for you to know which PSI you need for the particular purpose.
For example, if you are pressure washing a car, you need a different PSI and a specific nozzle and if you are going to pressure wash a wooden deck you need a different nozzle for the deck.
Greenworks 2000 pressure washer comes with 4 nozzle tips including 0-degree, 25-degree, soap nozzle, and a Turbo nozzle. Now select the required nozzle and connect it with the spray gun with a simple quick connection.
