Ever since Snow (the one-hit wonder white rapper) invented Snow Foam, detailers have gone crazy for a flurry of white foamy goodness.
Now, you don't need to be an expert to realise that snow foaming without a proper snow foam lance is like trying to compete in the Grand National on a lame Shetland pony.
The 'foam gun' that came with the pressure washer, or the one you got from the garden centre that you pump up manually, could be woefully lacking.
And by lacking, we mean 'dribbling out watery foam no matter how good your snow foam is'.
Now, all that could change by investing in a proper snow foam lance, like our Snow Commotion here.
Being a 'proper' snow foam lance means that the Snow Commotion is made of brass, with a wide-mouth 1 litre dosing bottle and adjustments for mixture (top knob) and compression (nozzle).
Attach it to a decent pressure washer (not that £30 one you won in a raffle that has no branding on it), and it should result in thick, shaving-cream-like foam - assuming the right snow foam (Apple iFoam, iFoam Max), the right lance settings and reasonable water flow. Soft water will foam even more.
Our Snow Commotion lance also comes with a Quick Release connection, making it interchangeable with some short gun attachments. Or just to make your life easier when using it.
Karcher K-series fitment - ideally a K4 or K5 - but it works adequately with our in-house K2 (110 bar) even though it's a little under-pressure. Other adaptors purchased separately will allow it to be used with other pressure washers (G1/4" female thread).
Some assembly is required but we include PTFE tape and instructions - all you need are a couple of spanners/adjustable spanners/mole wrenches to tighten things up.
* Wide mouth bottle for stability and easy-fill - with graduations in multiple units!
* Quick release connector, for 'always-up' orientation and convenience/versatility
* Vertical/horizontal foam spread option... just twist the barrel
* Usual mixture and compression settings for thick foam
