Description

Zoom on the Lifan LFQ2865

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

  • spot cleaning of hard, paintless surfaces and reaching far-away areas
  • intense cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces
  • cleaning of painted and frail surfaces

Ahead are presented its power characteristics and design, its main features and any other additional features.

Power

Powered by a 196 cc (6.5 hp) engine, its axial cam pump can deliver a pressure of 2800 PSI (around 47 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.5 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). Combined, these values mean that the Lifan LFQ2865 has a cleaning power of 7000 Cleaning Units.

The Lifan engine of this gas-powered pressure washer relies on an old-school pull-start mechanism to get started.

The fuel is stored in a tank, which can hold up to 1 gallon of gasoline.

Design & Handling

The wheelbarrow design of the Lifan LFQ2865 grants mobility and stability to the unit. The robust steel tubing frame guarantees longevity of the assembly. The folding handle enhances its mobility, while allowing for a convenient storage.

With a weight of 82 lbs, the model is not lightweight. Therefore, it may be challenging to manually carry it around and transport it. The major reasons for its heavy weight are its 196 cc Lifan engine and steel tubing frame. However, the unit is manipulated smoothly thanks to its two 10" wheels, which play a key role in its maneuvrability.

Main Features

The Lifan LFQ2865's package includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose and a detergent injection feature, with a more detailed description below.

  • Soap injection: Detergent is fed in through a siphon hose, since the device lacks a soap tank. The Lifan LFQ2865 features an automatic soap dilution mechanism, that will dilute your detergent with a 7:1 ratio.
  • Pressure hose: Using a set of convenient hooks, the included 25 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose can be easily stored on the unit when it is not running.
  • 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 low oil protection and a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
  • Accessories: Included with the Lifan LFQ2865 are also the owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and some basic documentation to get you promptly started, along with several accessories, such as pressure hose, wand, soap hose and spray gun.
  • Emissions: The Lifan LFQ2865 is NOT CARB-compliant. Thus, it cannot be purchased or sold in California.

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.

  • The Lifan LFQ2865 and its 2800 PSI, ranks amongst gas-powered pressure washers with a comparably low pressure output, considering the units that cost between $400 and $500. If the highest possible power of the water stream is your priority, one of the champions in this price range is the Briggs & Stratton 20647 with 3600 PSI.
  • As this washer can produce a flow of water of 2.5 GPM (gallons per minute), it is average in terms of water volume for the above-mentioned price range. If maximum rinsing efficiency is your top priority, one of the devices with the highest water flow in the same price range is the Lifan LFQ3370, with a GPM of 3.
  • The LFQ2865's Cleaning Units, 7000 CU (PSI x GPM), fall into the lower end when compared to gas-powered devices of similar price. If you consider the highest overall cleaning power as a really important factor, the Lifan LFQ3370 and its 9900 Cleaning Units has one of the highest cleaning efficiency of all the similarly priced units.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, 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.

  • In the expected price range

  • Several security features
