Could be any number of things..... Wrong tips, clogged tips, tips installed wrong, operator speed, bad concrete, surfacer too big for machine, etc....

I would reccomend you buy local on this piece of equipment.

Also rent one from a dealer or rental yard before purchasing.

This was you can avoid spending money on garbage.

My 15inch surface cleaner that attaches to my wand tip works great with my 4000psi washer

I got it from home depot and it was only $69.99

I also recommend whisper wash.

I use the largest one they make. The Maxima 36" surface cleaner.

I join two machines together, a 20hp Honda 8gpm pump and 13hp Honda 5gpm pump = 33hp 13gpm @ 2800psi.

VIDEO DEMONSTRATION of a MAXIMA 36" surface cleaner - 13gpm @ 2800psi

How many gpm's does your washer put out? Do you have a model # or photo of the surface cleaner?
