  • broad cleaning of hard surfaces, vehicle washing, and surface preparation for painting

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

Power

The NorthStar 1571102 in use

The NorthStar 1571102

Its triplex pump, which utilizes a 20-amp motor, may deliver a pressure of up to 2000 PSI (almost 33 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.5 GPM. Corresponding to these values is a cleaning power of 3000 Cleaning Units.

As an electric pressure washer, the 1571102's motor is effortlessly activated with a simple ON/OFF switch, ensuring convenient operation. The unit is ready-to-use with peace of mind, thanks to the included 36 ft GFCI cord.

Design & Handling

Designed with a wheelbarrow configuration, the NorthStar 1571102 ensures improved mobility and stability, allowing for effortless movement and reliable operation on challenging surfaces. The sturdy steel frame ensures the longevity of the assembly, offering stability and protection for internal components, even during rigorous use. The reversible handle offers further versatility, as its different positions make the unit less bulky when stored.

At 105 lbs, we can't really say that the unit is lightweight, and manually lifting or transporting it could be a significant challenge for users, especially if they need to move it frequently or navigate over uneven terrain. A key role in its final weight is played by its motor, the triplex pump and steel frame. However, the incorporation of two 10" never-flat wheels makes navigating the 1571102 less cumbersome, even on uneven terrain.

Main Features

The NorthStar 1571102 in use

The NorthStar 1571102

The NorthStar 1571102 comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.

  • Soap injection: Detergent is fed in through a siphon hose, since the device lacks a soap tank. Once a soap nozzle is connected, the pressure washer automatically blends the detergent with the water flow.
  • Pressure hose: Utilizing a set of convenient hooks, the unit offers a convenient solution for storing the included 25 ft high-pressure hose when it's not in use, keeping it neatly organized.
  • Spray gun and wand: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand can be easily stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzles: The following table provides information on the 4 included nozzles and their recommended surface uses.
