Do not buy the karcher one and buy the eBay one. The eBay one is great and is good as the more expensive ones.

I had the Karcher one and it's garbage compared to the other 2 that you are looking at. I sold the Karcher for nigh on £20 and put a few quid more to it and bought one that looks like the same as the Ebay one which works a treat!!

All snow foam lances, foam cannons or whatever they call it they you stick on the end of a pressure washer are the same, some might have the odd different colour to the plastic bits or different bottles attached but the working parts are the same, so get the one from ebay, why spend 40 quid plus p+p when you get the same thing for 25 on your door step.

Well to be precise all the ones that are brass in the middle are the same, and are sold all over the world and are by far the most common, there are some others around but the brass ones work well and don't break unless you dont look after them, and even then are very easy to take apart and clean etc.
