NorthStar Hot water Pressure washer

,
July 29, 2012
By ProSweep
from Kansas
"We have been using the NorthStar pressure washer/trailer for about a month (50+ hours) It is an excellent piece of equipment- performs exactly as described and is very well built. I love the powder coated tube frame and the fact it is well balanced- and can easily be moved around by hand (when empty). Everything works flawlessly.
We do decks and sidewalks and this is an ideal machine for the business- highly recommended.

"This machine has no limits! I continue to use it everyday washing simi trucks. It is by far the best piece of equipment i have ever bought. The trailer is stellar to pull great axle suspension.Honda engine is a work horse and the cat pump has more than nine lives !! Not to mention the guys at the Grand Prairie TX. Northern tool are very good guys to do business with!! They have a customer for life with me!!!!!!!!"

Good buy

"If you ask the guys at the popular pressure washer stores they will dog out Northstar pressure washer, but I could not be happier.
It is easy to use, low maintenance, works great, and gets the job done. I like the easy access to the pump and ball valves.
I do not like the way the garden hose reel is set up. It kinks whenever it is wound up and the hose clamp is too small for a garden hose. Other than that I would recommend this pressure washer to anyone!

"The NorthStar Hot Pressure Washer has performed very well over the past year. There were a few minor problems (pressure relief valve, defective FTP adapter, and Burner problem), all were addressed immediately by Northern Tool.
The pressure washer is very durable and works well. My staff enjoys the convenience of the size, which is very helpful with regard to transportation and storage. The operations manual are very detailed and incredibly useful if you live in a climate that experiences extreme changes in the weather."

IF YOU ARE MY COMPETITION DO NOT BUY THIS MACHINE

,
February 27, 2008
By TILLCO
from VALDOSTA, GA.
"I BOUGHT THIS RIG IN OCTOBER 07 DIRECT FROM A NORTHERN STORE. THIS UNIT IS A GREAT MATCH FOR POWER AND PERFORMANCE. I HAVE OWNED SEVERAL OTHER UNITS AND THIS IS BY FAR THE BEST ONE. NOW THE BAD NEWS: THE ONLY DISAPOINTING THING ABOUT THIS UNIT IS THE HOSE REELS, THEY ARE FINE FOR 150 FEET OF AIR HOSE, AND THEY WORK OK FOR THE GARDEN HOSE, HOWEVER THEY ARE NOT WELL BUILT ENOUGH TO HANDLE 150' OF PRESSURE HOSE ON A DAILY BASIS.
GREAT UNIT, HOWEVER FOR PROFESSIONAL USE PLAN ON REPLACING THE PRESSURE REEL IN ABOUT 2 MONTHS.

Trailer Mounted Skid

,
January 4, 2007
By midiau
from SC
"Not a great machine for what you pay! I and others with the same machine have had problems with the coil/burner unit becoming loose. A horizontal coil would work much better with this machine. 4000 PSI at 4 GPM is pretty good. If you would actually put a temperatuer guage you would realize that this unit does not acutually operate at 220 degrees my machine only gets up to 185. If you are a professional your needs would be much better suited buying elsewhere. Hose reels are not that great. Replaced after 6 months."

A+++++++

By Darrell
from Atlanta, GA
"I expanded my pressure washing business earlier this year with the trailer mounted unit. Let me tell you, it is the best trailer mounted rig out there! I looked on different websites and walked around stores window shopping for a better deal. You will not find a better deal for this price. 4000 PSI has the POWER to do any job. A buddy of mind put on the zero degree tip and pulled the trigger, it almost knocked him off his feet! I removed graffiti, paint on concrete, dirt, grime, oil and much more. With up to 250 degrees of heat, there is nothing you cannot do. My cost of cleaner has decreased because of the hot water."
