I have a question about starting the 3000psi pressure washer. Does anyone else have to hold the trigger down to get the engine started? I followed the instructions and it wouldn't stay running. I attached the wand and pressure hose, filled the tank, set it to run, set the choke and I attached the garden hose after I let it run for a about 30-45 seconds to get the air out of the line. After I attached the hose to the pressure washer, I turned the water back on and hit the trigger to get the air out of the line. Then I pulled the rope and it ran for a second and then died. i went to pull it again and it was really hard to pull. I hit the trigger and released the pressure. I tried again and the same thing happened. On the third try, I kept my hand on the trigger when I pulled and it started right up. Once I was able to turn the choke off, i released the trigger and it ran fine. The engine labors a little when i hit the trigger, but other that it runs fine. Is this normal until the unit is broken in? Just curious is all. I only tried it out for few minutes, but the pressure washer works great.
