Best Snow Foam Lance of 2021

Hi guys,

Still have my old faithfull, got to be 12 yrs plus & I think I paid circa £50 back then. All brass fittings & from AutoBrite Direct I think.

So, if you were in the market & looking to spend around £50 which one you get?

Thanks,

Rappy

To be honest I’ve used a few but personally find the Autoglym (polar blaster) is brilliant. Nice size bottle gap at top and very easy to put solutions in etc. Is very good at application in my opinion. Especially when I’ve used their polar range...

I'm still using my AutoBrite one and had no issues with it. However, if I was going to replace it think I'd be looking at the MTM one or the Auto Glym one, just to try something different but is also well regarded.

Lots of choices now. Need to look into both.

The only thing to add.

I purchased a new wider AB bottle a few years ago, as mine had split around the neck.

with a 1.1mm orifice

and I would pick up one of these (again) as you'll get a bit tired of how unstable it can be.

The MTM one is brilliant but if you are in the market for one, bear in mind that the new stable bottle is a bit more finicky when you are using the last bit of product. When you get down to say the last 10mm of product, because the base is very wide, you can have a reasonable amount of product in there but you only need to hold it a little off-level and the liquid can move away from the pickup hose which results in the last bit of foam being a bit watery.
You don't get this with the older style bottle. Still a fantastic cannon though and I wouldn't let it put you off.

+1 for Autoglym.

Admittedly I'm not experienced with lances but I've used the Karcher one and have seen videos of plenty other ones. the AG blaster really does a great job at thick foam which you can tone down with the nozzle.

This video really does it justice and is exactly my experience using the polar blast snow foam.

IVe had a cheap Chinese

Ibrobase piuma (also known as the MTM FEATHERWEIGHT)

MTM PF22

The PF22 takes the lead in quality and adjustability, the only issue is the bottle shape.

The Ibrobase piuma is a close second and is very good quality
