Got to agree with this . Snowfoam Lance from In2detailing cost me £16 and works great. Karcher k4 cost me £159 and so far it's brilliant. Vario Lance for bodywork , jet Lance for wheel arches.In2detailing do snowfoam lance kits mate very good value for money
K4 is your best bet refurbished around £100
That's what the Vario Lance is for as you can control the jet so it's not too harsh .Don't forget the car nozzle , some people have found the clear coat coming off wheels etc when using the normal patio cleaning nozzle. Amazon do a Nilfisk 'Auto nozzle for pressure washer' which I have and been brilliant so far.
@Joxh - Another vote for the Karcher K4 here
I was lucky enough to get a new one from Asda for £100
Best place to start looking would be Karcher's Outlet Store
Don't forget to check out Amazon's specials on Nilfisk power washers, especially over the easter weekend
Snow foam lance ?
Can't beat Autobrite's IMHO
You may pay a little more but they are the best
Snow foam? I'm not a fan but if you must Bilt Hambers Auto-Foam is highly recommended
You'll find with Car Detailing that everyone has their own fave products. Its just a matter of trial and error to get what works best for you
You get the variable nozzle on the new K2, if I’m understanding you correctly. It adjusts for different uses, eg cars, drives etc.Been watching this thread.
I have a k2 and it’s starting to break after about 7 or so years. Started leaking from inside so thought it’s time to upgrade.
For those with the k4 is there any point in the variable nozzle control thing? Is it just a gimmick?

The K2 nozzle is adjusted manually by twisting it, no leds though.My k2 was really good but think I want to replace with something more powerful
Only seen the variable nozzle thing in the k4.
This one with the leds
I got mine free when I bought Tesco insurance years ago. Definitely got my money’s worth too.The K2 nozzle is adjusted manually by twisting it, no leds though.
Same happened to my old K2 as yours but only after 13 or 14 years so I got my money’s worth
Good thing about the auto brite Lance is it is easy to take apart and remove the gauze capsule soak over night in vinegar and rinse . The lance will foam like new again . You can also by a new capsule for £5 .
I like their foam as well
Didn’t know this either mate, cheers for the infoYes it is like wire gauze . This creates the foaming of the solution . Over time it gets clogged with soap residue and you get less and less foaming . With the karcher gun you have to buy a new gun . With autobrite ( and others made by the Italian factory) you can open it up ( nice brass fittings) soak it to clean out the soap and as good as new . Will try to upload a picture.
The likes of AliExpress is good for things like this, yeah the delivery takes some time but at their prices you can buy in advance:Glad to help , I have had plenty of good advice over the years , so nice to return the favour.
