    One of the reasons I bought a power washer this winter was to foam cannon my truck, it better work! Just waiting for warm weather.

    I use the foam gun, works with garden hose and I love it! What’s great about is it’s adjustable to where you can change the air ratio and either gets tons of suds or just enough and it makes washing the truck really fun!

    I’m not even on top of this two bucket method. Maybe I’m just a car washing hack..

    I just started the two bucket thing. At least the foam cannon will help eliminate having to rinse, soap bucket, scrub, water bucket, soap bucket, scrub, repeat then hose all off. Using just that method it can take me forever to get it all.

    It also creates a slick surface to wash on, so not only does it break the dirt down more, but there is less friction with the slick surface. The difference I notice is I miss less spots on the original wash, especially on the wife's car where dirt hides more. Is it worth it? I think so, but it also creates more work so it may not be for everyone FWIW.

    I have both. Foam gun and foam cannon. I use my cannon with the power wash for deep cleaning and details and for quick washes foam gun is great. It’s a pain to get the power wash out. Turn a wash into a 2 hour project.

    anyone have a hard time finding a foam cannon that's disconnect fits in their pressure washer? I'm 1/3 on trial. The other two the disconnect nipple was a tad too short.

It was just normal road dirt and bird dropping’s .... All I did was blow it off with the pressure washer then hit it with the foam cannon and repeat blowing it off with water. Very impressed!!

    Do you have specs such as psi and gpm?

    What should I look for in a pressure washer and adaptability for a foam cannon?

    This is what I was looking for. If you can foam and then rinse without all the two bucket etc stuff and get a clean vehicle I would see the value.

    I just blew it off with water then hit it with the foam twice letting it sit about 2 minuets..... Swapped back over to water and blew it all off and started drying.

    The foam encapsulates the dirt, debris, etc lessening the chance for swirls, scratches on your paint. Get you a two bucket system with grit guards, then empty the rinse bucket when you're done and look at all the dirt, debris (stuff that can scratch) at the bottom of the bucket, you'd be surprised. I'm gonna do everything I can to reduce/minimize scratches, swirls, etc on my black truck. That's value to me IMO. To each their own though!! :cheers:

    Flux capacitor!
    Ever since I started using the foam cannon I’ve always used it. I did upgrade to the professional big mouth foam cannon but I haven’t used it yet. 003DC842-9C81-4D51-AA76-13EF47B12BD4.jpg

    I have that one and the one from Amazon. I'll say I do notice a difference in the overall quality of the Torq.

    2 buckets, what's that? I just unscrew the antenna and get pulled through the processing plant machines and Pop out the other end cooked and processed. I do opt for the low sodium formula to keep it healthy.

    I got one from Amazon that has the brass on the bottle as well as the nozzle. I saw one in Lowes yesterday for 22 bucks. Bottle looks smaller and I think everything was plastic on it except the quick disconnect...Didn't feel well made.
