Having kicked off the snowfoam cup last weekend you’ll be seeing a lot of this in action in the coming weeks so I thought it was worth a mention.
I recently upgraded my snowfoam lance and the main criteria I was looking to improve from my old one was the quality of foam, a wide neck for easy filling and a wide base so it doesn’t keep falling over. The Extra Foam Cannon that Infinity wax offer seemed to tick all of my boxes.
Priced at £29.99 you won’t find many of the currently in fashion wider bottles for less. It comes with your choice of fitting which I went for my current set up the standard Karcher K Series, even though I will soon be swapping to quick release the connector can easily be changed. For those using with a K2 like me will be glad to hear the improved internals maximise foam thickness. This is described as a ‘custom injector/ gauze’ which I believe means it comes with the smaller orifice and good quality gauze filter that a lot of people upgrade in their lances for thicker foam.
The only negatives that I have found is the karcher connection is very tight, doesn’t connect as smoothly as standard parts takes a bit of persuasion. Also it’s good that it has the numbers on the side of the bottle for measurement but they are so small, I have good eyes and have to hold it up to the light to see them.
These are minor issues though considering the benefits. My favourite part is how it produces that thick foam in a wide spray pattern. As you can see in the clip below once down the side of the car pretty much covers it definitely saving me solution over my previous lance. for me it’s a worthwhile upgrade and worth considering if you’re in the market for a new one.
