    The washer would be fine, it's just snow foam doesn't work properly through the detergent bottles. The only real thing to get snow foam to work properly is the snow foam lance tbh!!

    you don't get any washer that will give foam from a plastic bottle - anything under £50 is always going to be a real budget machine. Nothing wrong with a budget machine for occasional car wash but your going to have to buy a lance for snow foam and they don't last or have a decent water flow / pressure.

    yes with a hobby adapter (probably), snow foam lance sellers know what fits as long as you tell them what washer you have.

    Where can you get these longer hoses from. My adaptor comes in the form of my g/f carrying the Karcher around behind me.
    I found the cheap foam bottle produces alot of foam but drinks the contents.
