This pressure washer can be used to clean dirt from underneath cars and engines. It's best to use a wider spray nozzle(40 degree) at first, to ensure the spray pattern is not overly concentrated. Also, it's necessary to check with your vehicle manufacturer as to whether hot water or steam should be used to clean your vehicle's components.

The unit would not be able to be plugged into a dryer outlet. This unit requires a 230 volt 30 amp dedicated circuit. It would use a NEMA 6-30R plug. We do not offer a generator that would work with the type plug needed for this pressure washer.

This pressure washer's pump will not shut off automatically due to non-use. The pump is equipped with a thermal relief valve to help protect it from overheating for shorter periods. If your periods of non-use last longer than a minute, it's necessary to turn the pressure washer off.

Question

Soap On High Pressure & AMP Draw

Hi - The last reviewer stated that the unit, "....does not put soap under high pressure..." What does he mean? I want to be sure that I can add soap to my water while steam cleaning. Also, this calls for a 30AMP receptacle. What does the unit actually draw? Thank you.

Northstar Expert
The chemical/soap injector siphons water and will only work at low pressure. The pump is not designed to handle chemicals, so soap cannot be run through it and pressurized. We do sell a soap shooter(see link below) but it will only work with water up to 195 degrees F. While it is recommended that this unit be connected to a dedicated 30 amp breaker, the average draw is approximately 16 amps @ 230 volts.
