Question

This pressure washer includes a 50' hose. An additional 50' hose can be added(100' total) without experiencing any loss in PSI output. Hose lengths beyond 100' will cause a drop in PSI. A distinct formula to determine exactly how much PSI is lost for hoses longer than 100' is not available.

It's hard to say exactly. A hard-core engineering nerd could calculate it out for you, but this engineering nerd guesses about 10-15%. Not to mention, it would depend whether the hose was laid out straight or bent. Unless you need absolutely maximum pressure, I wouldn't worry about it.

Question

Is there an integral pressure switch

i.e. when it reaches pressure, does the motor shut-off? I may not use the washer continuously and being able to have the motor shut off on high pressure would be nice. Start using it again, pump kicks back on.

This pressure washer doesn't have an integral pressure switch. The motor and pump will continue to run even when you aren't spraying. However, the pump is thermally protected. The water in the pump will heat up after some time when not being discharged. The thermal protector valve will open and allow this hot water to exit the pump which allows cold water to enter the pump and cool it so it doesn't overheat or damage the pump. Northern Tool doesn't carry pressure switches for pressure washers that would turn the pump or motor off.

This pressure washer can be used with the heater/steamer add on unit. The heater/steamer has to be used or placed outdoors as it has a diesel burner to heat the water.

We do not have a decibel rating for our pressure washers, but it will be similar to other electric pressure washers. This unit does not have an auto on/off switch and needs to be turned off manually when not using.

The only way to wall mount this unit is to place it onto a shelf/bracket that will support the weight of the unit and hold up to the vibration. There are rubber feet on the bottom of the unit that will help with vibration. The unit weighs almost 150 lbs.
