Zoom on the Lifan LFQ2865

The Lifan LFQ2865 is a medium to heavy duty pressure washer, and enables:

  • focused spot cleaning on hard, unpainted surfaces, accessing high spots, and efficiently eliminating stubborn stains
  • complete cleaning of hard surfaces, vehicle washing, and surface prep for painting
  • mild cleaning for delicate surfaces, and low-pressure cleaning for broader areas

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

With a 196cc (6.5 hp) engine powering it, the axial cam pump of this unit are capable of achieving a pressure of 2800 PSI (approximately 47 times greater than that of a standard garden hose) and a flow rate of up to 2.5 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). Corresponding to these values is a cleaning power of 7000 Cleaning Units.

The Lifan engine of this gas pressure washer is activated by pulling a starter cord, following a traditional approach.

Gasoline is stored in a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 1 gallon.

Design & Handling

The wheelbarrow design of the Lifan LFQ2865 offers enhanced mobility and stability, making it ideal for navigating uneven terrain and ensuring steady operation during heavy-duty cleaning tasks. Guaranteeing longevity, the robust steel tubing frame offers stability and protects internal components, even when subjected to demanding tasks. The folding handle enhances its mobility, while allowing for a convenient storage.

With its hefty 82 lbs, this unit isn't exactly easy to handle, making manual lifting and transport quite a daunting task, especially on uneven terrain. The main contributors to its weight are its 196cc Lifan engine and steel tubing frame. Nonetheless, the addition of two 10" wheels simplifies maneuvering the LFQ2865, even across rough ground.

Main Features

The Lifan LFQ2865 comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.

  • Soap injection: Even without a built-in soap tank, the device relies on a siphon hose to provide detergent. The detergent is diluted with a 7:1 ratio by the Lifan LFQ2865's automatic soap dilution mechanism.
  • Pressure hose: For easy organization, the included 25 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose can be stored on the unit using a set of convenient hooks when it's not in use, ensuring a clutter-free workspace.
  • Spray gun and wand: A side hook enables you to easily store the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its versatile wand. 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 trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation) and a low oil protection.
  • Accessories: On top of an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and the usual documentation to get you swiftly started, the Lifan LFQ2865 also comes with spray gun, wand, pressure hose and soap hose.

The Lifan LFQ2865's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Lifan LFQ2865 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • Featuring 2800 PSI, the Lifan LFQ2865 achieves a lower pressure value compared to competing gas-powered pressure washers within the $300-400 price category. If your priority is the highest possible power of the water stream, in this price range, we suggest checking out the Westinghouse WPX3400, which reaches up to 3400 PSI.
  • Featuring a flow rate of 2.5 GPM, this washer sits at an average level of water volume within the previously mentioned price range. If your priority is efficient debris removal, consider one of the products with the highest GPM in this price range, such as the Lifan LFQ3370, boasting 3 GPM.
  • With 7000 Cleaning Units (PSI X GPM), the LFQ2865 is on the low end when compared to other similarly priced gas-powered devices. If the highest overall cleaning power is a priority, the Lifan LFQ3370 and its 9900 Cleaning Units are notable for their higher potential cleaning efficiency compared to units in the same price range.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other gas-powered washers between 7000 and 7500 Cleaning Units, the Lifan LFQ2865 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.
