Foam Cannon Recommendations

I'm finally upgrading from a foam gun and garden hose system to a pressure washer and foam cannon. What brand do you guys recommend? It seems like Adams and Chemical Guys both use MTM. Are there any quality lesser known brands that I'm missing?

Spending more than $25 on a generic foam cannon from Amazon or eBay is foolish. Have had mine for five years and it sprays thick creamy loads as well as it did day one. If you need a colorful sticker on the side... grow up.

Love this. I could watch it over and over again lol! Did not know you can change the MTM sprayer from vertical to horizontal. That alone may make it worth the extra money.

I just bought the Torq foam cannon from Chemical Guys, does anyone know if this is a direct fit to the Karcher k5 or is an adapter necessary?

Karcher's have that weird connect system on their gun wand right? Pretty sure you need an adapter since it doesn't utilize a normal quick-connect type system.

Think that is what you're looking for.

I have this with a greenworks electric pressure washer and it works for exactly what i need

dont buy into the youtube hype of all the "detailers" out there pushing "name brand" stuff. It's all the same crap with stickers. I did however pickup the MTM quick disconnect fittings from MTM Hydro and an SGS28 Gun.

Hrm. I've had mine for life and it's been spraying thick creamy loads since I started using it as a teenager.
