Questions & Answers for "NorthStar Gas Cold Water Pressure Washer - 4000 PSI, 3.5 GPM, Honda Engine, Belt Drive, Model# 1572041"

Question

Can I run the engine on this pressure washer without ocassionally pulling the trigger

It is my understanding that many non-commercial pressure washer pumps can be damaged if you do not pull the trigger on the pressure wand every 30 seconds or so and let water through the pump to keep the pump cool. Can this pump be damaged by letting the engine run for 10 or 15 minutes without letting water through the pressure wand ?

For this NorthStar Pressure Washer if being left unattended for a period of time it is recommended to shut the engine down and activate the spray gun trigger to relieve pressure on the pump. The pressure build up if not relieved will damage the pressure washer pump.

answer 2
Yes. In a pump, water is the lubricant and must be supplied at all times to the pump while it's running. When one lets off the trigger, the by-pass circulates the same water through the pump over and over, thereby warming the water, which can wear on pump components the longer and the more often the pump is exposed to this hot water. Most pump manufacturers recommend no more than 3 minutes in bypass mode; some professionals recommend no more than 30 seconds. The by-pass can be by-passed with a gravity fed tank and a return line.

This pressure washer is equipped with a recoil start engine. An electric start option is not available for this unit. Northern Tool cannot recommend or advise on modifying this pressure washer(including adding a starter to the engine). Modifications to it may void the warranty.

While the Cat pump has the ceramic plungers for longer lasting ability and is a good commercial quality pump, the Northstar industrial belt driven pump puts less vibration and stress on the pump for even a longer lasting pump.
