    Snow foam lance advice

    I am looking to purchase a snow foam lance for my karcher. My plan was to buy it from chemical guys as they were doing a good deal with the lance and snow foam product. They are always out of stock when I go on their website and I am very inpatient. I have done a bit of searching and come across this on ebay:

    KARCHER K SERIES BAYONET FITTING SNOW FOAM DETAILING LANCE HEAVY DUTY 1 LITRE | eBay

    Seems like a good deal, however I am uncertain if it is any good. Any feedback on ebay snow foam lances or advice on where to get a decent one would be appreciated!

    I have a Karcher powerwasher myself and I purchased my Snow Foam lance from Juicy Jen, super fast postage and excellent item, would certainly recommend the following:

    I got my snow foam lance from Autobrite and it's spot on. About the same price as the one you've linked to but won't include the 1l of snow foam stuff.

    Their Magifoam is brilliant as well!

    No problem at all mate, Juicy Jen is actually a site sponsor also. Similar to your link, the Snow Foam lance does come with snow foam:

    If you look at most snow foam lances the heads are made by a company called "PA" so there's not really any difference IMHO. You'll get good service from Juicy or Autobrite but the 1L of snow foam from Juicy should get you started for no extra outlay.

    the one you linked to first time round is the newer version the one you bought if picture is right is the older one. if its not made up then get some plumbers tape or thread seal and put on the barrel that links the karcher fitment to the head to make sure you get a good seal, the newer one is meant to amongst other things stop the leakage issue.

    I paid £50 with 15L of snowfoam, still using the first 5L bottle! lol, it's fun spraying it on the car, but not ideal on hot sunny days!

    Probably stock up on more goodies at the next meet anyway so snow foam will be on the list as I imagine ill get carried away once the lance arrives

    Which snow foam is better... the AutoBrite one or the one from Clean Your Car? They look almost identical and both heavy duty lances?

    Just thought I would update you guys on my experience of the juicy jen detailing snow foam lance and their service. On the website the lance + 1L of snow foam cost me £52.90 plus a delivery charge of £8.82. This was delivered within 24 hours of them receiving my order. The package arrived yesterday and to my surprise when I opened it I saw my brand new snow foam lance and 5L of snow foam instead of 1! Grinning from ear to ear thinking "boy, this was a great deal" dug a little further to discover 3 new microfiber towels too and to sweeten the deal (excuse the pun) some maoams! Desperate to use my new toy, I got changed and set up all the equipment for a quick wash. The lance was set up so all I had to do was add some product into the bottle with water plug it into my karcher and off it went. Literally took me 2 minutes to set it up to my liking. Overall to say I am satisfied is an understatement. Thank you for the recomendation and I would definitely advise anyone looking for a lance to get this one. Anyway here are some pictures I took along the way!

    Glad to hear you are very happy with your purchase mate, Juicy Jen offers a great service and the maoams was a nice touch too I thought!
