The book that comes with it does say that you can not hook it directly up to a tank. You would need a pump to supply I think it was a minimum of 6GPM.

answer 3
Northstar Expert
The NorthStar Gas Powered Wet Steam & Hot Water Pressure Washer requires a constant input of 5 GPM to work properly. A gravity feed system from a tank may work, as long as it is a constant input, but it may require a water pump. This item is designed for outdoor use only. We do not recommend mounting in a van because proper ventilation for the engine and burner are required.

answer 2
Yes they can I have the 30ft telescoping wand that I use pretty often with my northstar hot water unit with 3000psi / 4gpm, If you look at the telescoping wand in small print it says it can handle 200degree water. Just make sure you keep a good supply of O-rings since the hot water makes them blow out much faster.

While it is possible to use the surface cleaner (Item # 157627) with this pressure washer, it is critical to the integrity of the surface cleaner and the safety of the operator that the water temperature does not exceed 150 degrees F. This pressure washer has adjustable temp settings, however, it is capable of producing water temperatures of 250 degrees F. Northern Tool and Equipment does not recommend or condone the used of any of of our products beyond the manufactures recommended parameters.

It will keep up just fine as long as there is fuel in it. Be sure to shut off the heat and run cold water through when done. This will help the heating coil last.

This unit is a great choice for removing ice dams. The pressure that this machine puts out could be reduced to as little as 60 psi by using a low pressure nozzle, or no nozzle at all in the spray wand.

answer 2
You could theoretically change nozzle size, or if you need less pressure with less GPM, you could throttle back a bit on the engine. However, don't go down much on nozzle size or you will wreck the relief valve. Best to just cut back on engine throttle a bit. You have a large surplus of power and pressure here. I run mine less than max all the time.

You may add any amount of additional hose to this NorthStar Pressure Washer. Up to 100 feet you will maintain the full pressure and volume of the unit, but for every foot you add after 100 you will decrease your pressure by 7 PSI.

Northstar Expert
All of the pressure washers we sell use a triplex pump, which simply means the pump uses 3 plungers. This NorthStar Pressure washer uses a crankshaft-style, triplex pump. The crankshaft pumps uses 3 connecting rods, similar to your vehicles engine, for a longer lifespan. An axial triplex pump will have a single crankshaft that uses a wobble plate instead of connecting rods.
