Power Washer Problem

I have a 2800 PSI powerwasher that cranks on the first pull and runs great. When I begin to power wash, the pressure is intermitent so I have to continually to let off the trigger and pressure builds back up very quickly and go at it again.

How can I solve this?

Clay,

Engine brand doesn't tell me a thing, Machine brand and model number will tell me which of many pumps you are having a issue with. Their not all the same.....http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.php?t=144040

Clay...the description of the pressure washer is not sufficient enough to determine which one you have...
Model #'s have numbers...as do serial numbers...
