Hi all,
Well, I've decided to go ahead and spend some reasonably serious bucks on a fogger. I'm deciding between the American DJ Fogstorm 1200HD and the Chauvet F-1250. The prices are about the same ($149) and the Chauvet comes with the timer. I think I've asked this before, but if anyone has used these foggers I'd like to know your opinions on usability and reliability. Thanks to all!

well in terms of foggers ive found that the 25 dollar remote operated foggers were ok in a non widy areas

I know that the 70 dollar foggers you see around halloween time work better and the fog can spread farther than the 20 dollar ones but i dont think they can be remote operated

Electronics City is selling the Chauvet F-1250 for $149 with free shipping and a timer. A quart of fog fluid is included (like thats gonna last for a long time), but free is free. I've heard plenty of good stuff about this machine - I'm hoping my chiller will be able to handle it. I modified my FOTR chiller, following the Vortex pix that were kindly posted the other day (thanx, gmacted!). The mods worked great with my Lite F/X 700 watt fogger. The fog effect I'm trying to get is not huge volumes of fog, but the ability to keep a 25' X 25' outdoor area well-covered with frequent short bursts (5 sec on, 15 sec off) and not have to wait for re-heating every 10th cycle.

I can't say anything about a brand I've never used before, but I can honestly say that even the high powered 1000 watt units will all get to the point where they need a reheat cycle. The only ones I've seen that can maintain a true state of constant readiness are the 1200 watt units which are really two 600 watt units in one fogger. The Lite F/X ones I just sold off can maintain bursts every five seconds forever with a good remote.

For about another $100 bucks (I know that's a lot of prop money) you could get a VEI V-950. That's what I have and it rocks. Last year I was going to buy a VEI V-940 and then decided to go for broke and get the "big boy". I wasn't disappointed and neither will you. This thing will put out a serious amount of thick fog continuously all night. I'm sure you've seen my video before I've posted it dozens of times.
