    Does that include the foam bottle? I think thats what it is in the picture...but not sure if it would do the trick for the snow foam. Please let me know as I will be picking one of them up if it does!! Thx.

    It would dilute snow foam but not to the level that a proper lance would, more like soapy water than thick foam. You have to get a proper lance and snow foam, about £50.

    the little bottle does work in a fashion, but does not dilute the snow foam to the same degree, so its not worth having snow foam

    as mentioned you need a proper lance

    To use a snow foam lance your going to need a pressure washer PLUS a lance. They are a specialist tool that nobody supplies with a pressure washer as far as I know.

    I just thought anyone wanting to get into snow foaming could save a few pounds on the pressure washer, even budget machines are usually £35 -£40 .

    and dont forget to check what your buying. some of the cheaper ones have odd size fittings, i bought a cheap one, cost me a few more quid to get the fittings right. and now i want to upgrade to a better one and will have wasted my time. and a good snow lance is £50 every where

    Great minds Rich! Mutts nuts for cleaning the drive too. Find the 50% extra power nozzle a little too much power and just washes the snow around
