    Not super great, but it doesn’t suck either.Just wanted to chime in here because I purchased one of these recently for Halloween. I read a lot of negative reviews, but I went with my gut and bought one anyway. Quite frankly, I was pleasantly surprised. The unit itself is pretty sturdy and appears to be well-built. Most of the complaints about the unit appear to center around the fog not staying low to the ground. Well, depending upon the room temperature it is in, the fog will either rise or stay low to the ground. In a warm room it won’t take long for it to rise. Well duh, is this really a surprise to anyone? In cooler rooms it will stay down longer, but eventually the fog will warm up and rise. ALL FOG WILL. Also, it isn’t for outside use and it even says so in the instructions. I suspect complaints of the unit burning out and not working were the result of the operator letting the the fog juice run out resulting in the failure. The instructions warn against this as well.I do have a legitimate complaint, and that is with the water drainage lever on the back of the unit. It doesn’t indicate which is the “open” or “closed” position. I got a little concerned because the melting ice was not collecting in the drainage bag. I tried both left and right sides and even called the company and they said “right.” Well, they were wrong. The lever, at least on my unit, has to be straight out in the middle. With the unit slightly raised and slightly tilted back, the melting water run right out and into the collection bag.I would give the unit a higher rating if it were slightly cheaper. For a 400 watt foger, it looks like you’re paying at least $75-$100 for a built in chiller. You can make a chiller to attach to your fogger yourself for about $20. I don’t think I would recommend the unit for DJs on the go. They have enough heavy equipment to haul around, and other fog units may be better suited for their needs. But for use at small parties, home use, haunted houses, etc. the unit should perform well. I actually used mine outside on Halloween, and if not for the wind blowing so hard that night, it would have been perfect. However, for outdoor haunting displays, for next year I may pick up a pair of 1000 watt units. They cost less and should produce even more fog.

    Works Great but Just Not For our NeedWe tested this machine several times wanting it desperately to work, however marketed as and bought strategically as, a “low lying” fog machine – we could not reach this result, even going to 3 different stores to locate dry ice after regular ice produced no low fog…yet still, to no avail would the fog remain low.The fog filled our home to the ceiling like a nightclub and never would achieve the graveyard effect that we specifically spent the high-end price on this machine for – without the low lying effect and only the night club effect, we have no need for this machine and it did not meet our intent for use when buying.Production of fog, ease of machine, including quality/durability all seem excellent however – zero issues. I also think if you ran the machine in very small fog emitting durations it could lay low. We needed more fog though than a small burst every now and then.

    This would be a great fogger if ADJ would improve upon itThis would be a great fogger if ADJ would improve upon it. The one I got leaked even though I had the bag and tubing attached to collect melted water, which it did. You cannot produce fog for more than 8 to 10 seconds before it stops. Than you have to wait until it heats up again to get another 8 seconds out of it. Because you cant emit fog longer than this small duration of time, it does not fill a large room with the desired results.It could be that 400 Watts is just not powerful enough to run this continuously or certainly more than 10 seconds at a time. It’s a great concept, and I like the idea of an all in one unit but definitely has room for improvement. I’m hoping that ADJ can update this product and correct it’s deficiencies.I returned it, and as always, Amazon is just great! Would never buy from anywhere else.

    Great with Dry Ice and the Right Fog JuiceThis nice and quiet machine really does crank out the low lying fog that is good for grave yard effects, etc. I have used other machines for years, but this is the best outdoor one for the money. HOWEVER, you must use a high quality professional fog juice (such as “Froggy’s Freezin’ Fog Juice” for outdoors). Equally important is filling the chamber with dry ice (about 2-3 lbs.) Dry ice super-chills the vapor before it is pumped out of the machine. It must be colder than the surrounding air to hug the ground. Regular frozen water ice is often not cold enough to keep the vapor from rising, particularly on a cold night. When the fog isn’t cold enough, the effect is more like smoke than fog. So to summarize: A) professional quality juice gives you density and B) dry ice makes it hug the ground. You want both.

    Great Afordable Low Lying Fog Machine!This works great. I DJ wedding and use this with fog juice & dry ice. Fog sticks to the floor great. 10 pounds of dry ice will run for about 3 hours.One of these will work fine on a 20X20 size dance floor, I would suggest two of these for larger areas like a gym etc. So much more compact and light weight then lugging around a regular sized low lying fog machine. Higher quality fog juice like black label or the ADJ low lying fog juice DOES make a difference and works better. Dry ice is also another key factor to having amazing low lying fog. Great unit, I was so impressed with the first one I bought, I ordered another! Best bang for the buck!

    Professional gradeFairly industrial compared to others I have owned, and produces a GREAT deal of fog while using surprisingly little fluid. I have not yet tested it with dry ice, which would be considerably colder than that produced by your refrigerator, but have noticed with the latter that, upon output, the fog does tend to lay a little lower for a little longer before dissipating. Note that the manual encourages running it for a couple minutes every few months, presumably to keep the motor and pump seals from drying out. I am looking forward to see what it will do with dry ice.

    Fog Chiller that worksThis is a nice compact all in one unit. This is a multi-day multi-season machinge. It has the largest reservior for ice I have seen yet. When compared with standard for machines the fog it puts out stays much lower to the ground. However the 400 watt is a bit on the low side so the volume of it’s output is medium to low. The picture of the fog comming out of the machine is greatly exagerated. The amount of fog juice it can hold is small, so be careful. When it runs out of juice you can easily burn up ANY fog machine. When done and it is time to store clean it with fog machine cleaner.

    only worked for a few momths… and the warranty isno good if you don’t have the original boxit used to make an awful lot of fog… it was difficult to calibrate so the whole place would get so full of fog you couldn’t see, and then i would try to adjust it to produce less and then it was like almost no fog at all. But i still liked it, except then it just stopped sucking the fog juice into the machine for no apparentl reason. i could not find anything blocking it. But I also live in New York and just finding space for the fog machine is a challenge. There is no place for keeping orginial boxes…. so there is no warrantee for people like me It only worked for about 4 months. I keep playingwit it hopeing there is a way to fix it or lookiung for a repair manula oinline but for several months now its just a big chunk of metal taking up lots of space. I hope i can make it work again.

This is a floor unit only, but even if you want a ‘warm’ smoke as opposed to a low-lying fog, it works well due to the angled outlet.

    One time useUsed for a halloween party once. Used dry ice and highly rated low lying fog juice that was kept in fridge overnight. Wasn’t low lying at all, filled room solid white in seconds…cool if thats what you want, I didnt. Cleaned it really well and put into storage. Open it up this year and the pump is no longer working. Too late to return, very expensive paper weight.
