That's same brand as mine that I just got going. Runs one speed?  See if it "Bangs" when you shut it off at that speed. Not much for any controls on them, not mine at least. Has on/off switch and that is it!

Steve has been using it up at the lake cabin job and I have not noticed any backfire or other noises when he shuts it down!

Just don't run it without water. The pump will burn up.

I need to get me one of those that actually works.I keep borrowing my neighbors.

 

I had 3 but the 2 gas powered had cracked pumps would not build pressure and leaked everywhere and the 3rd was an electric one that lasted a whole 2 days before the motor went poof.Guess I'm just to cheap to get a good used one.Can't afford a new one.

 

I sold the 2 engines off super cheap and threw the electric one away.I watched the Garbage man put it in the cab with him.lol I give him lots of broken stuff and he's happy to take it :rolling:

 

Here's the cheap things that I always end up with thinking that I can fix them. :wallbanging:  lmao

Had this exact model bought it for $20 and sold the engine for $25 2 weeks later.

I found a used one on CL and replaced the pump.  They are around $80 or so..  

 

Installed the pump and I'm golden!  2800# of cleaning magic!

The Sears Craftsman parts listed on their site had pumps costing almost $300!!!  New units are cheaper than that when on sale and just a little more at regular price. Seems not worth fixing those.  I did shop around on epay and found same parts, all much cheaper when looking for the gun and small items.

You have to keep,water moving through them. Not just hooked up. The water running through them keeps them cool. Eveytime you let off the trigger the pump starts to heat up.
