Generec 3100 pressure washer bogs down under load

I have a generec power washer 3100 psi. It is brand new out of the box today. When I start it cranks on 1 try but bogs down and shuts off when applying water. Can anyone tell me what I need to check since the owners manual has not been any help. I have checked the hoses for kinks, supplied cold water, has gas and oil. WHat am I missing?

Welcome to the forums.

Thread moved to the gasoline powered equipment forum.

Did you take the unit off of choke after it started ?
It sounds like it may be running lean.
