Quoting my own post, although I have bought a different model of Resqtech, foam Lance don't come with the package.

Has to be bought separately from ResQTech.

Yes. The Foam Lance is sold separately INR 750.
I feel the effect of the foam lance is more cosmetic. Just my thoughts.

I agree, same thing I have written in my review above. It doesn't produce thick suds, but for the price of 750 it seems ok, as the MJJC ones which are really good costs about twice the ResQTech ones.

And unfortunately MJJC ones doesn't fit the ResQTech washer.

Has anyone been able to get good results with foam lance on a Karcher K3 Premium? The foam lance from Karcher doesn't seems promising neither are its reviews.

Seen enough videos to get even more confused with the result's people are getting. What is the main factor in producing good thick foam?

1. Good quality foam lance
2. Foaming liquid
3. Or a very high pressure washer( more then 120bar)

Any first hand experience ?

I have a K 3.500, the foam lance works really well. Currently using Meguiar's Hyper-wash. Bought a bottle of Proklear's SFW recently, will try it once the lance empties.

Need to work out how much shampoo goes in, too much and it won't mix, either the lance will get blocked by the sludge or you'll get only a watery mix. Too less also makes it watery.

This is how much I put (green line), rest is topped up with RO water.

Any foam lances that work with a garden hose? Isn't that enough pressure to get things going?

There won't be enough pressure.

If nothing you could get an agriculture sprayer and manually spray the foam, though it has its limitations it is worth the price.

Where did you sourced the MJJC lance and for how much? What ratio you are using for the mixture?

I tried making an order on MJJC site but transaction did not go through. It's on sale right now for $22 only

I ordered from AliExpress. Tools me 30 days to deliver. It is trustworthy but delivery takes time. I follow the dilution ratio mentioned in the pack. There are many many videos on YouTube, especially the one by alphyrenady

Got myself the Resqtech 135 bar power washer. Very well packed and good delivery timings.

Compared this with my brothers Karcher 120 bar washer and Karcher wins for its cleaning efficiency. The main factor, I noticed for this was, due to the type of nozzle that is available in the Karcher.

If only the models of pressure washers followed some standards in the nozzle attachments, we could freely cross use nozzles with various washers.

And no, this is not silent as they have mentioned on the site.

The power cable seems adequate but the pressure hose length is way too small. I cannot go around a car if I place this unit at a safe distance from the work area. Any closer and water will get sprayed on the unit itself.

Self priming function is a boon, especially where you have difficulty in accessing running tap water.

Compact size does makes it easy to carry around in the car. You can do your cleaning at your destination, provided you get a 20amp rated plug point there. Better carry an extension chord, if you are serious about this.

Tried the foam applicator without looking at how to use it and failed. Looks like I need to learn what ratio to put in it and how to properly use it before I try again.

Aquatak 100 is stopped. Don't buy it. It will definitely be pls stock.

Difference between 33 and 35 is pressure. If money is not a constraint go for 37-13 plus.

on a budget so the 37-13 is definitely out.

between the 33 and 35 ? isnt the pressure of the 33 enough to clean the car/bike ?
