Description

Zoom on the NorthStar 1571102

The NorthStar 1571102, a medium duty pressure washer, gives its user an all-around versatile cleaning experience, topped off by the following features:

  • intense cleaning of tough, paintless surfaces
  • cleaning of painted and frail surfaces
  • application of detergent and cleaning solutions

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

Using a 20 amp motor, its triplex pump delivers a pressure of up to 2000 PSI (roughly 33 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.5 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). Together, the values result in a cleaning power of 3000 Cleaning Units.

The 1571102 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 1571102 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.

This model weighs 105 lbs. For this reason, it cannot be called lightweight and thus, carrying and transporting it might be somewhat challenging. Its motor, the triplex pump and steel frame add up to a large chunk of the device's weight. However, the unit is mobile thanks to its two 10" never-flat wheels, which add to its movability and allow it to be manipulated smoothly on the job.

Main Features

The NorthStar 1571102

Along with the NorthStar 1571102 itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are discussed in further detail below.

  • Soap injection: Detergent is fed in through a siphon hose, since the device lacks a soap tank. The detergent is automatically added to the water when a soap nozzle is connected.
  • Pressure hose: The 25 ft high-pressure hose, which is included with the device, can be stored neatly on the unit itself when idle, using a set of convenient hooks.
  • Spray gun and wand: A side hook enables you to easily store the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.
  • Nozzles: The 4 included nozzles, and the respective surfaces they’re appropriate for, are listed in the table below.

Other Features

The NorthStar 1571102

  • Total Stop System (TSS): This feature automatically shuts off the pressure washer when the trigger is not engaged, to prolong the pump's lifespan.
  • Onboard storage: The NorthStar 1571102's handy storage area lets you store nozzles and accessories, and thus, you’ll be always prepared and have everything necessary for the job at hand.
  • Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a thermal relief valve (which helps to prevent internal pump damage) and a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
  • Accessories: On top of an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and the usual documentation to get you swiftly started, the NorthStar 1571102 also comes with spray gun, oil, power cord, wand, pressure hose and soap hose.

The NorthStar 1571102's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the NorthStar 1571102 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • The NorthStar 1571102 and its 2000 PSI, ranks amongst electric pressure washers with a comparably low pressure output, considering the units that cost between $1200 and $1550. If you're going after the highest possible power of the water stream, one of the best in this price range is the NorthStar 1571103 that can reach up to 3000 PSI.
  • This washer, with a GPM of 1.5 (gallons per minute) has a somewhat lower water flow value compared to devices in its price range. If rinsing away debris most efficiently is your priority, one of the devices with the highest GPM in this price range is the NorthStar 1571103, which can reach up to 2.5 GPM.
  • The 1571102 ranks as below average in terms of Cleaning Units, compared to electric devices in its price range, reaching only a value of 3000 CU (PSI x GPM). If you are after the highest overall cleaning power, the NorthStar 1571103 with its 7500 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 this interactive chart, when compared to other electric washers between 3000 and 3500 Cleaning Units, the NorthStar 1571102 is on the expensive side of the price range.
