Best Snow Foam Gun Australia
There are many different brands that are simply private label brands snow foam guns. It can be difficult to find the original manufacturers to exercise caution when buying online.
1. XZT Foam Cannon
It's the most popular snow foam guns on the market and suits most brand name cold water electric pressure washers. You can even choose the adaptor for a perfect fit. Brands include Gerni, Karcher K, Lavor, Stihl and Nilfisk brands.
This high powered device offers a maximum pressure of 3300PSI/220Bar and water up to 60 degrees. A 1L 32oz bottle is included for long periods of use and the nozzle is fully adjustable for different spray widths and flow rates.
Compared to the expensive models featured on Youtube channels this is one of the cheapest snow foam cannons on the market.
2. NUZAMAS Snow Foam Gun
The Nuzamas is a unique foam cleaning gun with 900ml capacity that works with nearly any garden hose using an easy universal connection.
A unique 2 in 1 function allows you to spray foam or water depending on whether you're foaming or rinsing.
The Nuzamas creates thick, clinging foam every time and with the adjustable ratio dial you can choose six different sprays.
The power output is not as powerful as the XZT as you're using a standard garden hose rather than a power washer but you can upgrade to the Nuzamas high pressure gun if you'd like (see #3).
During testing the flow rate was 5.5L per minute from a distance of up to 8 metres. The device is lightweight and easy to clean and maintain.
If you're looking for a high pressure foam gun without needing a power washer you'd be foolish to overlook the Nuzamas.
3. Nuzamas High Pressure Foam Gun
If you're looking to take the Nuzamas but want to buy the higher pressure gun that fits on standard electric washers then you'll need this one.
It features a large 1L snow foam bottle and 5 different spray nozzle tips for 0,15,25,40 and 65 degrees for every possible use case.
Combining high pressure water flow and mixed with detergent and air you'll have thick clinging foam every time.
The design and build quality would suit professionals and washing enthusiasts looking for the best in the business.
4. ESYNIC Foamaster 2
Boy does this snow foam gun look awesome. Featuring a slightly smaller 100ml capacity it works with most garden hoses and offers the ability to spray both water and foam.
An adjustable ratio dial mixes and sprays 6 ratios of foam and is suitable for small family cars, motorcycles and other household devices that need a clean. If you're cleaning a large car, boat etc I'd opt for something larger.
It's perfect for storing or carrying around due to it's small and portable design. It's pretty robust and sturdy given it's low price.
5. Foamee Snow Foam Cannon
Last on our list of the best snow foam guns is the Foamee which looks sleek and is manufactured locally and sold in many stores nationwide.
Offering a heavy duty solid brass head and wide angle or pin point spray nozzle it's ready to go for washing small, medium and large vehicles.
The device connects to standard Australian brands pressure washers and Foamee offers adapters for any brand in the domestic market.

Then attach it to your garden hose or power washer (you may need an adapter), adjust the dial and shoot your foam.
Snow foam guns are also commonly called:
- Snow foam cannons
- Snow foam catapults
- Foam cannon.
If like me you are new to snow foam guns, once you start to use them you can see how much time and effort they solve.
After much deliberation we believe the best snow foam gun for us is the XZT Foam Cannon. It ticked all the right boxes and was available at an affordable price with fast delivery. It worked with our standard Stihl pressure washer without buying additional adaptors.
