    Have you tried starting it up then lower revs to prime the pump first as my 14hp 3600psi 15lpm pw needs time to build up pressure when drawing water from a barrel etc?

    Same as that lol. I gae it time. 15 bloddy mins and still nothing! I packed up and went home. Had a cup of tea after I had cammed down I went out my back garden set it up. Worked perfect? So went back up to the job and it wouldnt work lol. Pain in the ****, eventually I got it working. Well it just worked its self.

    So in a nutshell a job that should have took no more than an hour and a half turned out to last most of the day.

    Do you pull the trigger when starting it up?

    i had a similar problem recently and it was down to a faulty trigger on the lance,so it might be worth getting someone to check it out for you.
