I use a regular foam gun yes
No it doesn't do anywhere near what a foam cannon does, but it does the job for me.

I so agree with that.

I am too lazy to use my foam gun most of the time.

But she gets washed once a week, no matter what. (until winter gets here)

I have a question about what I found on Amazon,there is the foam lance and there is a foam cannon from chemical guys that look the same but,one sells for 60 and the one from CG sells for 84.I don't see what the difference is and I watched a video from CG's site they seem to be the same MTM Hydro foam cannon

Not sure what the PSI is on mine, after owning it for 21 years I forget, if I had to guess I'd say in the 2000/2500 range. BTW, it's a gas PW.

Not a very good pics but I just took this for you.

Have you checked Autopia or Autogeek? They're $120 there. Skip the naming put on them and just get the cheap one.

I'd like to see a comparison review between the different ones on the market to see if there is any real difference ( we know there's a big difference in price ), I don't know what the other cannons can do better then my Lance but I do know I'm very please with mine. As I've already said before, wish I would have bought one a long time ago.

Thanks for the pix,I should have mine by Wed.I had been using a Gilmour foam gun,but this has always looked like a better method and I agree it is a pain in the rear to drag a PW out to clean a car,and I like to wash early in the morning to avoid the sun and the neighbors probably wouldn't like that noise.

My pleasure, what kind of soap do you plan on using?
