These are not very good at all. Read comments on previous deals - same with the Nilfisk ones, I’ve had both. Might be cheaper but what’s the point if they don’t work?
Get one like this via eBay - few quid more but well worth it.

This worked fine for me at the weekend. Very good foam and no problem whilst using autoglym products?
I used this previously with demon foam and it was total rubbish... I've started using it again recently with turtle Wax snow foam and it's so much better. I was going to buy a new snow foam cannon but for now I'm happy with this. For £10 it's a good deal but you need to buy good snow foam.
As above. It's fine in specific situations. For me, it was guff and it got binned. It leaked a lot and just didn't suit the snow foams I tried. YMMV, but personally, try something a little bit more imo.

The clue is that this is basically all plastic. Others incorporate metal (and for good reason I reckon!).

Can anyone explain the reason for using snow foam? Would jet washing with water prior to cleaning not have the same effect?
Edited by: "mario999" 17th Jun
same as others have said not a bad price but useless for snow foam
This seems to work perfectly with Autoglm Polar Blast snow foam...

OOS though and no reviews.
I don't have a pressure washer so did a search for a hose version and found this, which comes with 2Ltrs of foam for £12 at screwfix:

WHY APPLY A SNOW FOAM TO YOUR CAR?
The whole premise of using snow foam is to achieve a safer and more effective car wash result. After a certain period of time, dirt, environmental fallout, and road grime settles and bonds to the surface of your vehicle.

In many cases, trying to remove those more bonded contaminates by simply hand washing your car can prove to be difficult or even worse, lead to swirls and scratches. A snow foam has the benefit of softening and encapsulating dirt and road grime, providing a far safer and easier hand washing result.

You can think of it like soaking your dirty plates and pans in soapy water that softens the stuck food particles and makes them so much easier and safer to clean without having to resort to more aggressive scrubbing and damaging the surface.

Read third comment from the top. Also, I have this product and as someone said that this made of plastic and hence not great in creating thick snowfoam.
I followed the previous thread and the rant goes on, however, when I looked at the reviews for brass bodied ones they had opposing views to from leaking, not enough foam, connector not fitting etc. Some say the foam should stay on, others say no It should run down taking the dirt with...... Makes you wonder if it’s all a load of baloney.
I've had one of these for a couple of years and think it works fine with snowfoam, personally don't think you can go wrong for the price (paid £15 for mine)

These are fine, maybe not for use in a professional/industrial environment for they are not aimed at that either
Are these specific to karcher? I've a nilfisk and I'm looking to find a foam cannon I can attach to it

Thanks for the reply.

But using the plate analogy, wouldn't it be possible to clean them just as well with a jet of high pressure water (jet washer)?

I'm currently using bilt hamber auto foam and it definitely is more effective than just jet washing. It's so effective that when I've finished cleaning the car, after the auto foam application, the water I've used is virtually clean

You can wash it with jet wash alone and no harm. However just imagine that is there are dust particles or other things which dig hard on to the paint or slide on the paint and leave some marks. Snowfoam make those things less sticky so they can come off easily.

All you are doing is going delicate with those particles if you use snowfoam. You can skip it however not considered a good practice in OCD world.

Yeah, it might not work great, but I'll have 2 litres of the foam, and I'm sure it'll be OK, if it's really bad, I'll take it back.

That’s why I said “one like this”

I’ve got exactly the same one and it’s considerably better than the one that came with my K4.
Looking at the negative reviews on Amazon, most complaints seem to be that it doesn’t fit All the Karcher Range it’s supposed to. Having said that, out of 2976 reviews it still attains 4.4 out of 5. Don’t seem that bad to me?

I have the K4 and K2, fits both of those

Jetting dirty paintwork causes scratches if loose dirt isn't removed first. #1 schoolboy error in using a pressure washer. Same as when a sponge on a car scrapes dirt across the paint. They both contribute towards swirl scratches.

You can't eradicate them entirely, but snowfoaming etc can help reduce the likelihood of swirlies.
Received mine today and used it this evening on the car.

I bought a cheap(ish) 5l bottle of CarPlan foam wash and wasn’t expecting much, but to my surprise it actually worked really well. I had a nice thick coat of foam all across the car, left it for 10mins and then washed it off...car looks as good as when I take it to the local car wash.

I can only assume that the negative reviews are from people using a cheap/incompatible foam shampoo.

That’s interesting, did you use much of the stuff?
I used about 400ml, which is quite a bit really, however my car is large (X5) and was absolutely filthy! I completely smothered it in the foam.

The foam was £9.99 for 5l and so I should get about a dozen or so washes out of it...that works out at around 77p per wash :-)
