United Kingdom 2005 Range Rover Sport Supercharged Rimini Red

I was going to buy a specialist lance and foam but thought I'd give it a go with what I already had available... I thought it did a pretty good job. There was loads of foam and it clung to the car for a good length of time - when I washed it all off the car was practically clean!

I'll get some dedicated snow foam though - looks like it'll work out a lot cheaper than using the meguiars anyway and I'll see what difference it makes Thumbs Up

Can I resurrect this topic, I've bought a new macallister pressure washer but I'm struggling to work out which connection I'd need for a snow lance. Has anyone got a macallister? It seems the old macallister fittings are slightly different to the new ones too.

If it's none of these, you you are going to find it difficult to find one

If you can't find one the alternatives are, a replacement popular brand machine, or a hand pump sprayer.

I also have one of these.

Because I have to lug my pressure washer out of the basement every-time I want to wash my car I rarely use it. Now I just use a normal soap dispensing nozzle off the hose after an initial pre-rinse and then a rinse and then the hand wash. I find Results are the same, it just takes a few minutes more but way faster than the time it takes to set the pressure washer up. This may change once I move into my new home with the double car garage Thumbs Up

Wales 2008 Range Rover Sport TDV6 HSE Java Black

Hi Canrover

I prefer the pressure washer for brake dust on wheels & arches etc..

A lot of people in the U.K. Who dont have easy access to a pressure washer use car plan demon foam Twisted Evil off a standard hose fitting not sure if it's any good..(Halfords)

Once used mix up your on solution & use same bottle Wink

Not sure if available to you in Canada Question

Probably more cost affective long term to purchase large container of snow foam & dilute similar to below but will require bottle & spray attachment..of course depends how often you wash the car

Thanks pal, I'm sorted now, it turns out the fitment for a new macallister is the Lavor/halfords one whereas the older macallister uses the Bosch/ b&q one.

2013 Range Rover Sport SDV6 HSE Stornoway Grey

The local car wash guys based at our nearby large garden centre use diluted snow foam agent in a hand pumped Hozeloc garden sprayer, seems to get the same results as using it with a pressure washer. Certainly better than I can get with the Karcher reservoir and snow foam attachment that I have for my pressure washer. To the extend that I no longer use my Karcher for washing the RRS and go to the garden centre and listen to the radio while somebody else gets cold and wet for 6. Still use the pressure washer with a long lance attachment for cleaning the mud out of my Defenders underside nooks and crannies. 2018 Melting Silver Mini Countryman PHEV - a test car before Seeing if I could go to totally Petrol/Diesel free motoring
