Zoom on the Lifan LFQ4515E-Elite

In a nutshell, the Lifan LFQ4515E-Elite 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, reaching high areas, and removing stubborn stains
  • general cleaning of hard surfaces , washing vehicles, and preparing surfaces for painting
  • soft cleaning of delicate surfaces, and gentle cleaning for larger areas with low pressure
  • applying detergent and cleaning solutions, and rinsing surfaces

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

Power

The Lifan LFQ4515E-Elite in use

The Lifan LFQ4515E-Elite

The Lifan LFQ4515E-Elite's triplex pump, powered by a powerful 420cc (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). Thus, the Lifan LFQ4515E-Elite achieves a cleaning power of 18000 Cleaning Units.

Boasting a dual starting mechanism, the Lifan engine of this gas-powered pressure washer delivers convenience and reliability: you have the option to select either the practical electric start or the time-tested pull-start mechanism. Yet, it must be noted that the 12V battery, which is necessary for the electric start, is not included.

Gasoline is stored in a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 1.75 gallon.

Design & Handling

Characterized by its wheelbarrow layout, the Lifan LFQ4515E-Elite provides improved mobility and stability, facilitating easy movement and steadfast operation for effective cleaning results. With its strong stainless steel frame, the assembly is built to last, providing stability and safeguarding internal components, even in challenging environments. The folding handle enhances its mobility, while allowing for a convenient storage.

Weighing in at 120 lbs, it's safe to say this unit isn't lightweight, which might pose difficulties for users when it comes to lifting and transporting, particularly over uneven surfaces. The major reasons for its heavy weight are its 420cc Lifan engine, the triplex pump and stainless steel frame. Nevertheless, with its two 13" never-flat wheels, users can manage the LFQ4515E-Elite with less difficulty, even over uneven terrain.

Main Features

The Lifan LFQ4515E-Elite comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.

  • Soap injection: While the device doesn't feature a soap tank, detergent supply is ensured by a siphon hose. The detergent is diluted with a 7:1 ratio by the Lifan LFQ4515E-Elite's automatic soap dilution mechanism. Upon connecting a soap nozzle, the pressure washer takes over the task of seamlessly combining the detergent with the water flow.
  • Pressure hose: With a set of convenient hooks, the unit offers a practical solution for maintaining workspace order, allowing the included 50 ft high-pressure hose (5000 PSI rating) to be neatly stored when idle.
  • Spray gun and wand: A side hook enables you to easily store the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.
  • Nozzles: Find details on the 5 included nozzles and their recommended surface applications in the table below.
