NorthStar Pressure Washer Pressure Gauge - 5000 PSI, 3/8in. Fitting
Well built product. It is exactly like the photo in the catalog. This is as simple as it gets. You just couple it to your pump and couple your hose to the other end... Done! Easy to read gage lets you know exactly how much pressure you are working with. I was actually using it to check my pump for trouble. I can't see any down side to this product at all.

Good to know
Pressure gauge just snaps inline between the pump output and the hose, nice to know the output pressure so I can duplicate the setting for different cleaning jobs. Too much pressure damages some surfaces and not enough just doesnt get the job done. Saves time playing with the pressure adjustment.

A must for a pressure washer
This is a very essential accessory for pressure washer as strong as mine 4000 PSI. It's very accurate and allows you to select the proper pressure for the job.

Purchased with my new 4000 psi Northstar pressure washer. Gauge works well. Definately a necessary accessory in order to "dial in" accurate pressure for the task at hand and avoid damage.

5000 psi Pressure Gauge for pressure washer
Great gauge, sturdy, oil filled and appears to be very resistant to vibration. Has a male & female connector so it is ready to put in-line as soon as you get it. Great price, much less expensive than trying to piece on together with the cost of all the individual items.
Just what I was looking for.
Remember to set your pressure with nozzle spraying so you are reading working pressure, not static pressure.

I purchased a 4000 psi adjustable pressure washer from Northern so it was important to be able to actually see what pressure the washer was producing before starting a job. I purchased the 5000lb gauge for just that purpose. The gauge comes with a quick connect fitting which makes for an easy install.
After attaching and adjusting pressure, I would make sure to remove gauge. I have a feeling it would not take much fore hose to become entangled with gauge and break fitting.

Leaky pressure Gauge
Purchased this pressure gauge when I purchased the pressure washer. Overall very useful to determine the output pressure when I need less than 4000 PSI.
The only complaint I have is that it leaks; not around the quick disconnect, but from the gauge itself.

This guage installs without tools between the pressure washer pump and the output hose. It is as easy to install as changing spray nozzels. This allows a quick and accurate adjustment of pressure when 4,000 PSI is too much for some materials. Large easy to read numbers. This gauge was a great addition to my NorthStar 4,000 PSI pressure washer with the Cat 66DX pump.
