I live in Hickory NC and need my Briggs and Straton water…

Customer Question
I live in Hickory...

I live in Hickory NC and need my Briggs and Straton water pressure repaired. The pull to start the engine broke and the line is leaking water?

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you have fuel in the tank? If so, is the shut-off valve open and the fuel clean?

I'd like to have someone repair it in the area?

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

No

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Who in my area can work on the pressure washer?
