I'm looking for an opinions from those who already own/use a foam cannon. Are they as great as they're advertised to be?
Do you think it needs to be the chemical guys version or would one or the other ones at half the price be satisfactory?

Thanks in advance :)

    Yes

        I'm guessing that's a yes to foam cannon = worth the $$?

        How about $100 version compared to $45 or $50?

          I've never used one but I don't personally think they are worth it. I'm lazy and I don't want to add an extra step into my washing process.

            You don't need an expensive one. But I do like using a foam gun

                I have a foam canon attachment for my pressure washer.  I love it and it works better that the normal soap tip.

                      I would probably consider selling it :)

                      I think they're like $80 US plus shipping and all that

                          I have one too. For a vehicle that is maintained well (waxed regularly and doesn't get overly dirty) they work well. For really dirty vehicles, they are good to pre-soak.
                          I think Amazon has better prices than most other websites.

                              yeah exactly. The foam won't pull all the dirt off so you  need to use a mitt anyways.

                                    I think they're like $80 US plus shipping and all that


                                    What kind of pressure washer were you using with it?

                                    I've been wanting to get one, but I'm on the fence about committing to a good [expensive] pressure washer.
