    Not sure on the pressure needed for snow foam but you cant really go wrong with a karcher.

    I use a 13year old karcher on mine. Have no idea of the output, but it does the job (except for my lance being broken!)

    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    Dont know if this will be true but would it also not depend on the pressure you get from your water source, if thats not very good would it not be better to get a washer to match this.
