Definitely won't fit a K-series without an adapter. You can get one from Amazon for less than $20 and warehoused by Amazon so you get it tomorrow or whatever:

That said this has a plastic end, but not like the Karcher wand/adpaters aren't plastic to begin with. The adapter I got was all brass/metal but I had to wait some weeks for it to arrive--I don't see any listings like that on Amazon anyway; I'd just go with the half-plastic since it'll be lighter and you'll get it quickly and easily. It'll cost more than the cannon, lol, but the good news is you'll then be able to use any quick-connect pressure washer hoses, accessories, etc. instead of being stuck with only Karcher products.

Don't use it too damn close to the car in case it breaks.

I had the same one and the plastic head broke completely off the copper end and shot out.
Damaged the car's door, had to get the dent pulled.
:eek: WOW really? That is a bit concerning.

Maybe I'm just dumb but I don't see anything in that bylaw about washing cars in your own driveway? (Commercial car washes need to have grease and oil traps).

Yes I have photos somewhere in my older iPhone! The whole plastic part including the copper holding it screwed down broke right off!

I tried both the $4 Kobalt and the $15 PA one. Hands down, the PA piece is much better. More foamy. The Kobalt was basically shooting soap suds.. Not foamy at all. I ended up returning the Kobalt to Lowes and kept the PA piece..

So on the new small kobalt pressure washers that many picked up, this only connects on the long wand?

Kinda heavy and less control then if you connected without the wand (which the one in the box with the washer did)

Any other feedback?

I made a much shorter one and you have a lot more control. Also not as heavy. Purchased all the parts from PA.

Please check your local bylaws before washing your car in your driveway. In many cases, like Toronto, it is not allowed for good reason (ever notice how each time it rains in Toronto all the beaches become off-limits for days and days? it's not just E. coli they're testing for). This "hot deal" can quickly become not so hot if your neighbours call 311 and you get fined (it's unlikely but still no reason to be a crap person and pollute)

Lots of car wash products also contain phosphates which contribute to the spreading of blue-green algae in our waterways (already a really bad problem and getting significantly worse in recent years). The algae is extremely toxic and routinely kills fish and animals (including pets).

You can purchase one on amazon that’s ready to go like my previous post in the photo or build your own, like I did. About $25 from PA.
An employee helped me get all the parts, all I needed to do was screw on the attachments .

i just used my PA 15$ foam cannon! works good! lots of foam and i didn't need to use much of the bottle and soap...i only used like 1/4 of the bottle, the only bad thing is it makes a #(@!!@ing mess of the driveway with all the white soapy water! my neighbors might complain cuz i leave the sidewalks dirty with white streaks! i didn't really adjust the spray, not sure if it can widen the spray pattern of the foam? or it only shoots a straight line?

Twist the black nozzle. It’s an adjustment
