It took almost 3 weeks to receive the pressure washer since the day I placed my order. It is EXTREMELY DIFFICULT to start the pressure washer by using the recoil. I had a different brand 4400 PSI machine for 3 years and it was not this hard to start it. I called today to the Lifan service department to ask if starting the machine with the recoil is supposed to be this difficult or if something needs to be adjusted but the person that I spoke with was very rude, and unprofessional, he did not care at all, he just tried to make me feel that I am so dumb. That is not the right way to treat a customer that needs to be assisted.
The pressure washer was just as pictured. Some assembly required but very easy. I didn't realize that it didn't include the battery. The specified battery in the manual was not available locally so I had to order. Upon arrival of the battery, it started the machine but fit loosely in the battery holder. Batteries locally that are slightly longer and wider would have fit better. Also would go with a slightly higher cranking amps battery.
The engine started without any problem; both with the pull rope and the electric starter. The washer worked great. Like the trigger much better than my old washer. Love the control panel. Hose connections, switches, choke are all easily accessible on the panel. Wish the throttle control was there.
I chose this washer because it was the pressure and flow I wanted. I've never had a Lifan engine but so far it works great.
Easy to assemble, handles ok for transport. Well designed & complete.
