    I've used this Karchner for 4 years, it works great. just enough pressure to get after it but not damage anything. It's Only on when you're on the trigger. Plastic wand so you dont have to worry about bumping anything with it.

    Also use this fitting:

    With this foam cannon,

    Good time saver, pre soaks grime.
    Foam with gun, wipe down with MF mit, swap end, spray off.
    wish I would have done this years ago!

    An electric pressure washer with a bit more power, and a higher quality Foam Cannon makes for much thicker foam that will have more hang time.

    When the Foam Cannon is used as a pre-soak to help loosen up crud prior to the pre-rinse, then the longer the foam clings to the paint, the more time it has to loosen up the crud, allowing more to be rinsed away before you ever touch the paint with your wash media.

    When the Foam Cannon is used as a replacement to the suds bucket, which is how I always wash, then the longer time that the thicker foam clings to the paint, the more protection that is still on the surface when I use the wash media.

    To be an effective replacement to the suds bucket, I use the Foam Cannon to apply shampoo to just a few panels, then use the wash media and rinsing the media in the Rinse Bucket, then move to the next area on the vehicle, foam it up, wash with media, rinse the media, and so forth.

    I have found that the extra suds on the paint from using the Foam Cannon, compared to using a suds bucket, is more effective and safer for the paint, since there is more lubrication on the surface.

    Also, the black version of our Foam Cannon is part of the current Flash Sale. Use the discount code MARCH15 to get it for only $42.49.

    Yes, that's a black Raptor under all that foaminess!

    I have the SunJoe with the top reel. I do find that is a bit top heavy but it works well. Just bought a hose extension as the 20ft was too short for me. I use it with a Torq foam cannon and have been happy with it.
