Just bought a snowfoam lance, went to use it for the first time today and it was crap. Had to hold it upside down for any foam to be produced?? It's on a Karcher K2 with AutoBrite Magifoam, but a £20 eBay lance. One thing I've noticed is there's no plastic pick up line from the lance down into the bottle, surely there should be? Any help would be great thanks

I thought there would have to be, or it would have to be one hell of a Venturi to pull all that out hahaha. Yeah I knew it wouldn't be amazing but I thought it might have done the job! The autobrite hd are supposed to be good anybody got any experience or advice on any good ones?

the autobright like most non ebay lances are just re branded PA lances, so in all honesty just shop around the retailers sites and see what one comes up cheapest (Y)

What's PA mate? Ive given the people I bought it off a bit of grief about it, but I'll probably get a bit of pick up tube and see how it goes then if not I'll look for another :)

PA is just the brand, can't mind what it stands for if anything, but most Lance's you buy From the likes of AD, clean my car ect ect despite having branding on it to the contrary, are all PA Lance's at heart( normally has PA etched on the mixture control or the nozzle)

PA Spa are an Italian company that make liquid distribution systems. Only buy a snow lance that you can be certain is a PA

Yeah I've heard good things about them, I've found a perfect bit of hose for it and put it on just need to give it a go at the weekend now and see if it's any better! Looks fairly well put together to be honest but we will see
