powerwasher problem

edge3502(z6NY)April 12, 2010

machine =6.5 Honda Cat engine,with a 2SFX 30GZ pump Unfortunately I lent out my machine to a friend in fall of 2009.I went to use the washer last week,the motor started fine,ran water thru intake and output hoses and powerwasher unit,attached the wand after water circulated thru the sysem there as no presuere at the wand tip.I asked the previous user of the machine and he said it worked fine before he returned it.(believeable).What should I be looking at as the primary problem? and what would be the cost.I looked at replaceing the pump and at the price I could buy a new machine.Thanks

I have a commercial grade electric unit and that sounds like what happened to mine. I replaced the end wand and then it worked fine. Certainly an inexpensive fix. While I was at it, I removed and cleaned/checked the unloader, figuring if the unloader was fixed in the circulation mode the pressure would significantly drop at the wand end.
