Description

Zoom on the Lifan LFQ2565

In summary, the Lifan LFQ2565 is a medium duty pressure washer, which provides:

  • spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces or high reach areas
  • intense cleaning of tough, paintless surfaces
  • cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces

The following sections will present you in detail its power characteristics and design, its main features and all the additional features it has to offer.

Power

Using a 196 cc (6.5 hp) engine, its axial cam pump delivers a pressure of up to 2500 PSI (roughly 42 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). Together, the values result in a cleaning power of 5000 Cleaning Units.

The Lifan engine of this gas-powered pressure washer gets started by a classic pull-start mechanism.

Gasoline storage is facilitated by a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 1 gallon.

Design & Handling

With its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D19 x W23 x H28 in, the Lifan LFQ2565 provides great mobility. The robust and sturdy steel tubing frame offers longevity to the assembly. The handle adds to the LFQ2565 convenience of transport.

With a weight of 68 lbs, the unit can be easily maneuvered by most users. One of the largest contributors to its weight are its 196 cc Lifan engine and its steel tubing frame. Since the LFQ2565 has a set of two 12" wheels, it is still easily maneuvered and manipulated.

Main Features

The Lifan LFQ2565 comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.

  • Soap injection: While the device doesn't feature a soap tank, detergent supply is ensured by a siphon hose. The Lifan LFQ2565 includes an automatic soap dilution mechanism, which will dilute the detergent using a 7:1 ratio.
  • Pressure hose: The 25 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose, which is included with the device, can be stored neatly on the unit itself when idle, using a set of convenient hooks.
  • Spray gun and wand: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its versatile wand can be easily stored in a side hook. Lifan's adjustable wand allows you to conveniently switch from low to high pressure, while you clean. Simply twist the end to adjust the pressure and spray pattern on-the-go.

Other Features

  • Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a low oil protection and a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
  • Accessories: Besides the usual owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and documentation to get you promptly started, the Lifan LFQ2565 comes with spray gun, soap hose, pressure hose and wand.
  • Emissions: The Lifan LFQ2565 is NOT CARB-compliant. Therefore, it is not available in California for sale nor purchase.

The Lifan LFQ2565's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Lifan LFQ2565 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • The Lifan LFQ2565 with its 2500 PSI achieves a lower pressure value, compared to other gas-powered pressure washers in the $300-400 price range. In case you are looking for a device with the highest possible power of its water stream, one of the top achievers in this price range is the Stanley SXPW3425 with a PSI of 3400.
  • In comparison to other devices in the above-mentioned price range, this washer and its 2 GPM (gallons per minute), has one of the lower GPM values. In case you are looking for a device which can most efficiently rinse away debris in the current price range, the Lifan LFQ3370 has the highest GPM of 3.
  • With 5000 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), the LFQ2565 is on the low end when compared to other similarly priced gas-powered devices. If you are after the highest overall cleaning power, the Lifan LFQ3370 with its 9900 Cleaning Units is one of the products that can achieve the highest cleaning efficiency in this price range.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other gas-powered washers between 4700 and 5800 Cleaning Units, the Lifan LFQ2565 is on the average side of the price range.

Therefore, this pressure washer nicely fits in the expected budget for this kind of cleaning power.
