Constantly Leaks Oil
I purchased this 2 months ago to replace a gas power washer. I ordered it on line from Rona. When it arrived the box was heavily oil stained. I rang Customer Service and reported this as I was concerned about using it seeing as how much oil had come out and I suspected it may have drained from the pump. The customer service person went to speak to a tech and came back and said “nothing to worry about, it is just the protective spray that is put on to protect the machine from rust, and they must have been too liberal in applying it". Not sure I understood why it was necessary to protect it from rust, but I used a cloth to thoroughly dry the machine. I have now used it 4 times and on each and every occasion oil has dripped from the machine onto the deck I have been power washing! It drips under the machine it is not evident until you move it and then see it on the ground. First time it happened I assumed that I had not dried it properly, but this has continued. (I have taken photos) Once on the ground/patio it has been hard to remove and I now have some areas that have brown stains. I am about to ask Greenworks to either replace or refund my money. If you order this machine and it arrives in a box, check for signs of oil. If present do not accept delivery and return it.
