    Default Snow foam/Jet washer question

    Ok. I am looking to buy a reasonably priced Jet washer and also be able to attach a snow foam lance which works well. I know, reading from the other posts on this forum, that some of you have Karcher etc, but my questions are these:-
    Which is a reasonably priced washer to buy (for use producing good foam for car and also cleaning block paved driveway)
    and, Which snow foam lance should I buy which is compatible.

    Is it fair to say that Autobrite seem to do the best lance?
    Where can I buy snow foam at a reasonable price too.

    Sorry for all the questions but just wanted a simle answer instead of chasing my tail buying lots of different bits and pieces.
    Pity there wasn't something out there which did it all at a decent price.
    Thanks guys.

    Mikey - did you get anywhere with this? I'm on the look-out for the same setup. Did you get any good advice from Mark?

    I bought this type of pressure washer from this guy. Great price and in like brand new condition. Autobrite snowfoam guns are good. I've not used thier soap.

    I spoke to Mark today. He recommended certain items which I agreed with having read up on them on here.
    I went for the Super Snow foam concentrate 5L, Some Brite wheels cleaning stuff, the snow foam lance from Mark and he says that a Karcher 2.54 would be well up to the job for my requirements. I said I would hardly use it really so didn't feel spending £100's would be worthwhile. Leaves me with more beer tokens. I got the Karcher today from Argos, and hopefully be able to give it all a try on Fri afternoon or Sat after work. I think I spent more on bits from Mark than I did on the washer itself and having a quick try of the Karcher on the patio, the wife is more than impressed so it keeps her off my back too. Only problem is I have to do the whole patio now and the front drive blocks.
    I plan to take my wheels off and do the inside rims as they are filthy at the minute. I'll post some pics up on the snow foam if it all goes ok and hopefully the car will get a good clean if it doesn't rain.

    Bit of a competition going on as the guy opposite me has a Fiesta ST he's always cleaning and now I can see how bad a job he's doing. Same sponge for wheels and bodywork, etc etc. I'll show him how it's done.

    Weird... looks like we've come to the same conclusion on the same day.
    I've sourced a Karcher 399M (similarly priced to your 2.54, should be powerful enough), and Mark helped (via email) to select the correct snow foam lance. I also went for the 5L Super Snow Foam (Thick).
    Looking forward to it all arriving and giving the car a good blasting! I'll post some further piccies & we can compare notes!
