Question

Is it all gas powered?

I was wondering if this machine was all gas powered. The water pressure runs on gas and the diesel runs the burns for hot water. I was wondering because i have an old machine that runs off of electricity and the burner off diesel and i wanted one that runs on all fuel.

The engine that drives the pump is gasoline powered. The burner that heats the water runs on diesel fuel. There is also a 12volt electrical starter for the burner. No external power needs to be connected to the unit for it to run.

Turning the unloader valve will lower the pressure. While we do not test the minimum PSI, there is a flow switch in the burner that requires approximately 500 to 1000 PSI to in order to run the unit.

A steam nozzle is designed to be used with higher water temperatures. The steam nozzle is to be used to clean objects that should avoid excessive moisture.

You can use a water tank instead of a hose. Be sure the supply coming in is 1 GPM more than the output of the pressure washer, in this case 3.5 GPM.

NorthStar Gas-Powered Wet Steam pressure washer will maintain the 2.5GPM no matter the temperature being used. The unit does not generate steam, it simply heats the water hotter than boiling and it turns to steam when the pressurized water hits the air.
