Zoom on the Lifan LFQ2565E
In summary, the Lifan LFQ2565E 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
Its power characteristics and design, its main features and all its additional features are presented ahead.
Its axial cam pump, which utilizes a 196 cc (6.5 hp) engine, may deliver a pressure of up to 2500 PSI (almost 42 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2 GPM. These values correspond to a cleaning power of 5000 Cleaning Units.
The Lifan engine of this gas-powered pressure washer provides convenience and reliability, as it offers a dual starting mechanism: you can either choose the traditional pull-start mechanism, or the practical electric start. However, it should be noted that the 12V battery that is mandatory for the electric start is not included.
Gasoline is stored in a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 1 gallon.
Design & Handling
The Lifan LFQ2565E is very mobile, due to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D19 x W23 x H28 in. The strong steel tubing frame assures assembly longevity. The handle adds to the LFQ2565E convenience of transport.
The majority of users will be able to maneuver this unit easily, it only weighs 70 lbs. Its 196 cc Lifan engine and steel tubing frame account for a good chunk of that weight. Nethertheless, thanks to its two 12" wheels, the LFQ2565E remains very easy to manipulate and maneuver.
Along with the Lifan LFQ2565E itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose and a detergent injection feature, which are discussed in further detail below.
- Soap injection: While the device doesn't feature a soap tank, detergent supply is ensured by a siphon hose. The Lifan LFQ2565E features an automatic soap dilution mechanism, that will dilute your detergent with 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: Both the classic ergonomic spray gun and its versatile wand may be conveniently 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.
- Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a low oil protection and a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
- Accessories: On top of an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and the usual documentation to get you swiftly started, the Lifan LFQ2565E also comes with wand, pressure hose, spray gun and soap hose.
- Emissions: The Lifan LFQ2565E is NOT CARB-compliant and so you cannot buy it nor sell it in California.
The Lifan LFQ2565E's performance versus other pressure washers
The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Lifan LFQ2565E compare to similarly priced pressure washers.
- The Lifan LFQ2565E with its 2500 PSI achieves a lower pressure value, compared to other gas-powered pressure washers in the $500-600 price range. If you're going after the highest possible power of the water stream, one of the best in this price range is the Simpson PS61201 that can reach up to 3500 PSI.
- When compared to devices in the above-mentioned price range, this washer and its 2 GPM (gallons per minute), is on the lower end of the achievable water flow. If rinsing away debris most efficiently is your priority, one of the devices with the highest GPM in this price range is the Lifan LFQ3370E, which can reach up to 3 GPM.
- The LFQ2565E has 5000 Cleaning Units (PSI X GPM), which can be considered low in comparison to other gas-powered devices of this price. If the highest overall cleaning power is your top priority, the Lifan LFQ3370E, which can reach up to 9900 Cleaning Units, is one of the most efficient of the devices in the current price range.
As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other gas-powered washers between 4700 and 5800 Cleaning Units, the Lifan LFQ2565E is on the expensive side of the price range.
While certainly not the cheapest of its cleaning power range, purchasing it could most likely also mean enjoying the reliability of a high-end product.
