I already have a smoke machine but wanted to add another to add to this year's Halloween decorations to help increase the spooky factor. I saw this one with the colored LED lights, thought it looked really cool, and pulled the trigger on purchasing it.
Not. Sorry. I. Did.
This little machine rocks! It throws out tons of smoke, more than my other machine, and the lights make it look so much better! Super simple to use: Attach the handle and the remote box cable, fill with smoke fluid, plug it in and turn it on. It takes 3-5 minutes to heat up and a red light will show it is ready on the remote box attached to the back of the machine. Then just hit a button on the included remote and watch the smoke billow out.
There are only 2 things I can think of with this machine that do detract from it a bit but not enough to remove a star:
1) The 3 color LEDs are either on or off by a switch on the main unit. You can not have just 1 color on, either all of them or none.
2) The remote has 4 buttons on it labeled A-D. I had hopes that these would control the LED lights but all they do is make the machine blow smoke. Doesn't matter which one you press. You need to hold the buttons down to have it do this, unlike my old one where you hit 1 button and it blows smoke until it needs to heat up again. Kind of odd but whatever.
But still, even with these odd features(?) this machine is well worth the purchase price. Grab yourself 2 quarts of smoke fluid and you will be ready for Halloween, photo shoots, or just for a fun time. The smoke blows out just hard enough to fill the area and keep it close to the ground, which is exactly what I wanted for the graveyard I have set up for the Trick or Treaters.This year is going to be better than ever thanks to this awesmoe smoke machine!
Now if I could figure out a way to have this thing fog for mosquitos in the summer I would be all set!
