This is our lowest priced complete package for creating low lying fog effects that will treat an approximate size of a 1-car garage where the conditions are controlled from the natural elements. We recommend refreshing the ice to top capacity every 30 minutes of this system when set to its highest setting. The smoke machine included here is the most affordable, fully professional unit on the market today, built for years of rugged use. Comes with a hand held remote on/off switch only. This unit does not have the option of remote timer and is not a continuous operation, meaning that it will cycle on and off as typical fog machines do. For maximum output and ease of use, the ON button on the remote control can safely be taped down into the ON position, allowing the machine to simply begin producing fog again once the heat exchanger reaches optimum temperature. Never leave your operating machine unattended.
