  • overall cleaning of hard surfaces, washing vehicles, and prepping surfaces for painting

  • applying detergents and cleaning agents, and rinsing off surfaces

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

Power

The NorthStar 1571103 in use

The NorthStar 1571103

Using a 30-amp motor, its triplex pump delivers a pressure of up to 3000 PSI (roughly 50 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.5 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). When these values are taken together, they yield a cleaning power of 7500 Cleaning Units.

With its electric design, the 1571103 starts up effortlessly with a quick press of an ON/OFF switch, ensuring ease of use. The unit is ready-to-use with peace of mind, thanks to the included 36 ft GFCI cord.

It should be noted that the unit requires a dedicated 240V electrical circuit to operate. The included cord has a NEMA 6-30P plug, which should be plugged into a 6-30R receptacle.

Design & Handling

The wheelbarrow design of the NorthStar 1571103 offers enhanced mobility and stability, making it ideal for navigating uneven terrain and ensuring steady operation during heavy-duty cleaning tasks. The steel frame's robustness ensures the assembly's longevity, maintaining stability and protecting internal components, even in the harshest environments. The reversible handle offers further versatility, as its different positions make the unit less bulky when stored.

At 130 lbs, this unit's substantial weight makes it quite a challenge for users to lift and maneuver, particularly on uneven surfaces where its heft can become even more apparent. Its motor, the triplex pump and steel frame add up to a large chunk of the device's weight. Nonetheless, the addition of two 10" never-flat wheels simplifies maneuvering the 1571103, even across rough ground.

Main Features

Along with the NorthStar 1571103 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. Upon connecting a soap nozzle, the pressure washer takes over the task of seamlessly combining the detergent with the water flow.
  • Pressure hose: The unit comes equipped with an included 25 ft high-pressure hose, which can be neatly stored on the unit when idle, thanks to a set of convenient hooks, ensuring easy access and organization.
  • Spray gun and wand: Both the classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand may be conveniently stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzles: Below, you'll find a table outlining the 4 included nozzles and their recommended surfaces.
