Zoom on the Lifan LFQ2130-CA
In summary, the Lifan LFQ2130-CA is a medium duty pressure washer, which provides:
- spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces or high reach areas
- thorough cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces
- cleaning of painted and fragile surfaces
Powered by a 79 cc (3 hp) engine, its axial cam pump can deliver a pressure of 2100 PSI (around 35 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). Combined, these values mean that the Lifan LFQ2130-CA has a cleaning power of 4200 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 0.37 gallon is used to store gasoline.
Design & Handling
With its portable design and approximate dimensions of D16 x W13 x H15 in, the Lifan LFQ2130-CA makes mobility one of its core strengths. Its sturdy steel tubing frame provides longevity to the assembly. The rubber-padded fixed handle adds to the LFQ2130-CA convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.
Since the unit weighs only 33 lbs, it is very easily carried around. Even though the LFQ2130-CA doesn’t have any wheels, their absence is fully compensated by this light weight.
The Lifan LFQ2130-CA's package includes a spray gun, a wand and a pressure hose, with a more detailed description below.
- Pressure hose: The included 25 ft high-pressure hose can be neatly stored on the unit when idle thanks to a set of convenient hooks.
- Spray gun and wand: A side hook allows for an easy storage of 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.
- Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation) and a thermal relief valve (which helps to prevent internal pump damage).
- Accessories: Included with the Lifan LFQ2130-CA 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 wand, spray gun and pressure hose.
- Emissions: The Lifan LFQ2130-CA is EPA-approved and CARB-compliant. Thus, selling and purchasing this pressure washer is allowed in each of the 50 states, including California.

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Lifan LFQ2130-CA compare to similarly priced pressure washers.
- The Lifan LFQ2130-CA, which can achieve a PSI of up to 2100, falls behind the other gas-powered pressure washers in the $240 to $300 price range. If the highest possible power of the water stream is your priority, one of the champions in this price range is the Westinghouse WPX3400 with 3400 PSI.
- The achievable water flow of this washer, which reaches 2 GPM (gallons per minute) can be described as low, 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 Powerhorse 89897, that can deliver up to 2.6 GPM.
- The LFQ2130-CA's Cleaning Units, 4200 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 Westinghouse WPX3400 and its 8840 Cleaning Units.
As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other gas-powered washers between 3500 and 5000 Cleaning Units, the Lifan LFQ2130-CA 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.
