Zoom on the Lifan LFQ2130-CA
In a nutshell, the Lifan LFQ2130-CA is a medium duty pressure washer that allows:
- spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces and high-reach cleaning
- intense cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces
- cleaning of painted and fragile surfaces
Using a 79 cc (3 hp) engine, its axial cam pump delivers a pressure of up to 2100 PSI (roughly 35 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). Together, the values result in a cleaning power of 4200 Cleaning Units.
The Lifan engine of this gas-powered pressure washer relies on an old-school pull-start mechanism to get started.
Gasoline is stored in a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.37 gallon.
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. The robust and sturdy steel tubing frame offers longevity to the assembly. The rubber-padded fixed handle adds to the LFQ2130-CA convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.
Standing at only 33 lbs, this model can be carried around very easily. This light weight compensates for the fact that the LFQ2130-CA doesn't have any wheels, as it's not something necessary.
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 25 ft high-pressure hose, 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: 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.
- Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a thermal relief valve (which helps to prevent internal pump damage) and a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
- 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, pressure hose and spray gun.
- Emissions: The Lifan LFQ2130-CA is EPA-approved and CARB-compliant. Therefore, the sale and purchase of this pressure washer is permitted in all of the 50 states, including California.

- The Lifan LFQ2130-CA, a device which can produce up to 2100 PSI, is on the lower end of the pressure spectrum, among the gas-powered pressure washers in the $240-300 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 Westinghouse WPX3200 with a PSI of 3200.
- In comparison to other devices in the above-mentioned price range, this washer and its 2 GPM (gallons per minute), has one of the lower GPM values. If rinsing away debris most efficiently is your priority, one of the devices with the highest GPM in this price range is the Excell EPW2123100, which can reach up to 2.8 GPM.
- Amongst similarly priced gas-powered devices, the 4200 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM) of the LFQ2130-CA rank as low. In case you are looking for the highest overall cleaning power, in this price range, one of the current champions is the Excell EPW2123100 and its 8680 Cleaning Units.
