Description

Zoom on the NorthStar 1571101

In a nutshell, the NorthStar 1571101 is a light duty pressure washer, which not only offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, but that also allows:

  • thorough cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces
  • cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces
  • applying detergent and cleaning solutions

Its power characteristics and design, its main features and all its additional features are presented ahead.

Power

The NorthStar 1571101 in use

The NorthStar 1571101

Powered by a 15 amp motor, its triplex pump can deliver a pressure of 1700 PSI (around 28 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.5 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). Combined, these values mean that the NorthStar 1571101 has a cleaning power of 2550 Cleaning Units.

The 1571101 is an electric pressure washer and thus, can be easily started by an ON/OFF switch. The unit is ready-to-use with peace of mind, thanks to the included 36 ft GFCI cord.

Design & Handling

The wheelbarrow design of the NorthStar 1571101 grants mobility and stability to the unit. The robust and sturdy steel frame offers longevity to the assembly. The reversible handle offers further versatility, as its different positions make the unit less bulky when stored.

At 91 lbs, we can't really say that the unit is a lightweight, and manually lifting or transporting it could be a challenge. Its motor, the triplex pump and steel frame add up to a large chunk of the device's weight. However, the device’s two 10" never-flat wheels play a key role in its maneuverability, as they allow it to be manipulated smoothly.

Main Features

The NorthStar 1571101 in use

The NorthStar 1571101

The NorthStar 1571101's package includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, with a more detailed description below.

  • Soap injection: Detergent is fed in through a siphon hose, since the device lacks a soap tank. The automatic soap dilution mechanism of the NorthStar 1571101 will dilute the detergent with a 15:1 ratio. If a soap nozzle is attached, the device will proceed to add the detergent to the water automatically.
  • Pressure hose: A neat storage for the included 25 ft high-pressure hose is facilitated by a set of convenient hooks.
  • Spray gun and wand: Both the classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand may be conveniently stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzles: The following table illustrates the 4 included nozzles, along with the surfaces which they are the most suitable for.

  • Onboard storage: The NorthStar 1571101 allows you to be always fully prepared, as it features a handy storage area, where nozzles and accessories can be stored.
  • Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation) and a thermal relief valve (which helps to prevent internal pump damage).
  • Accessories: Included with the NorthStar 1571101 are also the owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and some basic documentation to get you promptly started, along with several accessories, such as power cord, spray gun, soap hose, pressure hose, oil and wand.

Product Video

The NorthStar 1571101's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the NorthStar 1571101 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • The NorthStar 1571101 with its 1700 PSI achieves a lower pressure value, compared to other electric pressure washers in the $500-1400 price range. If your priority is the highest possible power of the water stream, in this price range, we suggest checking out the AR Blue Clean MAXX2200, which reaches up to 2200 PSI.
  • With a water flow of up to 1.5 GPM (gallons per minute), this washer belongs to the best of the above-mentioned price range, as it can deliver a high volume of water.
  • The 1571101 has 2550 Cleaning Units (PSI X GPM), which can be considered low in comparison to other electric devices of this price. If you are after the highest overall cleaning power, the NorthStar 1571102 with its 3000 Cleaning Units is one of the products that can achieve the highest cleaning efficiency in this price range.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other electric washers between 2500 and 3000 Cleaning Units, the NorthStar 1571101 is on the expensive side of the price range.

While certainly not the cheapest of its cleaning power range, purchasing it could most likely also mean enjoying the reliability of a high-end product.
