Description

LIFAN Power USA’s Pressure Storm Series 2800 is extremely dependable, using LIFAN’s Industrial Grade 6.5MHP (Maximum Horsepower) 4-Stroke OHV Gasoline Engine and a high quality Annovi Reverberi (AR) High Pressure Pump. (source: Lifan (opens in a new tab))

Zoom on the Lifan LFQ2865

In a nutshell, the Lifan LFQ2865 is a medium to heavy duty pressure washer that allows:

  • spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces and high-reach cleaning
  • thorough cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces
  • cleaning of painted and frail surfaces

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

Power

Using a 196 cc (6.5 hp) engine, its axial cam pump delivers a pressure of up to 2800 PSI (roughly 47 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.5 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). Together, the values result in a cleaning power of 7000 Cleaning Units.

A classic pull-start mechanism is responsible for starting the gas-powered pressure washer’s Lifan engine.

A fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 1 gallon is used to store gasoline.

Design & Handling

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

The device weighs 82 lbs and thus, is far from lightweight. Transporting and manually lifting it may therefore pose a challenge. Its 196 cc Lifan engine and steel tubing frame are mainly responsible for its heavy weight. However, its two 10" wheels play an important part in its maneuverability, as they allow for a smooth manipulation on the job.

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: Even though the device doesn't have a soap tank, detergent is supplied by a siphon hose. The detergent is diluted with a 7:1 ratio by the Lifan LFQ2865's automatic soap dilution mechanism.
  • Pressure hose: The included 25 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose can be neatly stored on the unit when idle thanks to 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.

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 LFQ2865 comes with soap hose, spray gun, pressure hose and wand.
  • 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 with its 2800 PSI achieves a lower pressure value, compared to other gas-powered pressure washers in the $400-500 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 Ryobi RY803423H with a PSI of 3400.
  • Considering its water flow, this washer, with a GPM (gallons per minute) of 2.5 is in the average compared to other devices in its price range. If you’re after the highest rinsing efficiency, one of the units with the highest water flow in the current price range is the Predator 3100, that can deliver up to 2.8 GPM.
  • The LFQ2865's Cleaning Units, 7000 CU (PSI X GPM), fall into the lower end when compared to gas-powered devices of similar price. In case you are looking for the highest overall cleaning power, in this price range, one of the current champions is the Predator 3100 and its 8680 Cleaning 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.
