NorthStar Pressure Washer Pressure Gauge - 5000 PSI, 3/8in. Fitting
Complete PSI Guage Set-up
I have a 4K, 4GPM, Pressure Washer and wanted to use it at a lower PSI; you need this set-up to do the job correctly. Many places sell the guage and connector separately, but Northern has this one, which is of excellent quality, for under $20. I used it first to ensure it was operating at the proper PSI, then I put a 5.5 nozzle and could see what the pressure was going to be - excellent! I find that Northern has anything and everything for your pressure washer, or generator. My order arrived in about 3 days - never had to leave home to get quality!

This one was defective
Product was defective on the female end. Tried two different qd sets, from two different major home repair stores. Neither would work on the female end. However, I was impressed with Boone in tech support because after explaining the situation, he is shipping me a new gauge @ no cost. He also agreed it was defective. Maybe the one coming will work.

Great product just wasn't a northstar
Works great seems like a great piece but mine doesn't say northstar on it. No big deal really but product picture is misleading.

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.
