I have troybilt gas pressure washer. I just bought on craigslist and
the gun part did not have the wand. When I run the pressure washer I
just get a trickle less than the water going in. When I unhook the
highpressure hose it comes out super fast. I have not unhooked the gun
from the hose.
I was wondering if the wand attaching to the gun would make it have
higher pressure or if it sounds like the gun part is the problem?
My bride harvested an adult 3-speed tricycle from the trash. It needed
new tires for certain. Soap, water and with new tires it would look
I sold it for $100.00 on craiglist and gave the wife $25.00.
The buyer was happy about his purchase. He could have paid hundreds
for the same bike new. His wife needed a bike like that for medical
What's to know? The comment in senseless. CL is no different than the
local want ads. If the OP bought a broken PW it's their own fault for
not trying it out before buying it. If the seller wouldn't hook it up,
then NO DEAL.
Do you mean with out the output hose on the machine it comes out fast,
but hooked up with the tip removed its slow? A clog in the hose or gun
seems kinda likely doesnt it, take off the gun and maybe there is a
filter, there is an intake filter for the garden hose, all you can do
is take it all apart to find the mess up, and know why its a craigs
The hose, or something attached to it like a nozzle, is plugged. Remove
pieces until you find the culprit and replace it. Looks like you found the
reason for selling it.
IF it's the hose and you have accomodating connections, try removing
evehtyhing from the hose and run pressure throught it backwards. Bees and
spiders can often plug those things up, even the nozzles. I keep plastic
bags over mine when they're not in use. I had a similar problem and bought a
new hose, then got the old hose cleared. So I put the two hoses together,
new an dold, and added a lot of length to how far I could go with it.
Dropped the pressure a bit, but still plenty for washing the house down,
Good news it was the fact it did not have a wand. Got a great deal at
sears for one for $11. I bought it off craigslist because it was so
cheap $50 and knew the motor was good so if the pump was bad I had a
good motor. The guy did show it to me before I bought it and I saw
water flowing out the gun part.
