is it a proper snow foam attachment, and not the Karcher own yellow one?

I use to have the yellow karcher detergent bottle and in my experaince it simply isn't a snow foam gun or even close to it !

I used the Karcher bottle and then swapped it for my proper foam lance, the difference is night and day.

I'd say that was pretty good for a Karcher foam lance.....

If you want more foam you need to invest in a "proper" foam lance. Autobrite do one on the group buy on here for £40 delivered...

It's a really good piece of kit.

Will see what mine is like as only paid £7 for it. However would something like this be better should I not like the results of the karcher

eBay item 370532328513

Why go for that ebay item when the Autobite Group Buy is only 51p more expensive, plus you get a half litre of magifoam to go with it?

At least you know what you get with the Autobrite one. If it goes wrong, Mark at autobrite will help.

With ebay stuff - your stuffed!

Was just comparing to see if that was the right kind of thing.

Never ever been "stuffed" on eBay with over 2300 feedbacks and 95% of them purchases!

I had a problem with the adapter that was with my AB foam lance. A couple of emails and some pics explaining the issue and a new one was duly sent. No quibbles or arguments....

AB customer service in my experience is excellent, and at 50 pence over the eBay item I know where I'd spend my money....
