Description

LIFAN Power USA’s Hydro Pro 4500 rental/contractor-grade pressure washer is extremely dependable, using LIFAN’s Industrial Grade 15MHP (Maximum Horsepower) 4-Stroke OHV Gasoline Engine and a high quality Annovi Reverberi (AR) Triplex Plunger High Pressure Pump (source: Lifan (opens in a new tab))

Zoom on the Lifan LFQ4515E-CA

In a nutshell, the Lifan LFQ4515E-CA is a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, which not only offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, but that also allows:

  • spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces and high-reach cleaning
  • intense cleaning of tough, paintless surfaces
  • cleaning of painted and fragile surfaces
  • use of detergent and cleaning solutions

Its power characteristics and design, its main features and all its additional features are presented ahead.

Power

The Lifan LFQ4515E-CA's triplex pump, powered by an impressive 420 cc (15 hp) engine, can provide a pressure of up to 4500 PSI (approximately 75 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 4 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). The Lifan LFQ4515E-CA thus has a cleaning power of 18000 Cleaning Units.

The Lifan engine provides a convenient and reliable start of this gas-powered pressure washer, with a dual start mechanism: you can either choose the practical electric start, or the traditional pull-start mechanism. Yet, it must be noted that the 12V battery, which is necessary for the electric start, is not included.

The fuel is stored in a tank, which can hold up to 1.75 gallon of gasoline.

Design & Handling

The wheelbarrow design of the Lifan LFQ4515E-CA 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.

At 120 lbs, we can't really say that the unit is a lightweight, and manually lifting or transporting it could be a challenge. Its 420 cc Lifan engine, the triplex pump and steel tubing frame are mainly responsible for its heavy weight. However, the device’s two 13" never-flat wheels play a key role in its maneuvrability, as they allow it to be manipulated smoothly.

Main Features

Along with the Lifan LFQ4515E-CA itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles 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 LFQ4515E-CA has an automatic soap dilution mechanism, which dilutes the detergent using a 7:1 ratio. The detergent is automatically added to the water when a soap nozzle is connected.
  • Pressure hose: The 50 ft high-pressure hose (5000 PSI rating), 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: A side hook enables you to easily store the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.
  • Nozzles: The 5 nozzles included with the device, and the respective surfaces which they’re the most suitable for, are shown in the following table.

Other Features

  • Onboard storage: The Lifan LFQ4515E-CA features a handy storage area, which allows you to neatly store nozzles and accessories and be always prepared by having everything needed at hand.
  • Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation), a thermal relief valve (which helps to prevent internal pump damage) and a low oil protection.
  • Accessories: Besides the usual owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and documentation to get you promptly started, the Lifan LFQ4515E-CA comes with spray gun, wand, pressure hose and soap hose.
  • Emissions: The Lifan LFQ4515E-CA is EPA-approved and CARB-compliant. And so, this pressure washer is available for sale and purchase in any of the 50 states, including California.
