From a Craigslist ad:
http://tallahassee.craigslist.org/tls/1540694323.html

"Champion Model HR5; 1735 RPM; time 24 hrs; maximum amp 40; head radius 2-1; 120 gal tank; Westinghouse lite line AC motor."

What's the meaning of "head radius 2-1" in this context?

That's a steal -- grab it! I have the 7.5 HP Champion -- it'll last a lifetime...

The 2 to 1 has to do with the pressure vessel design. Pressure tanks have to be certified and that is part of the info. on the take.
