Hi guys,

I just got a prochem peak gtx, I am doing the installation, my local place has a week and a half waiting, andI need this baby running by friday.

So we put the machine in the back of my 10 ft box truck.

Now I am trying to just start the machine and starts but dies right away, the other TMs that I've used have the either have a little pump on the side Briggs and stratton and Kher command 30 hp also has a fuel pump on the side.

This machine just has a hose comiig out of the carburator and for now I just have a gas can on the side of the machine to test it, my question is does the motor sucks gas from a short distance?

Any help would be apprecciated.

It sucks gas period.

If you are just trying to crank it for the first time, just keep trying until it stays running.

some quick starting fluid may help. If the can is far away it may take a while to stabilize
