    Since I seel both types, it's tough to choose.

    I sell more of the inexpensive foggers then the expensive ones 3 to 1.

    That's cause of all us cheep skates who buy the 'disposable' kind. :lol: No, really, we've never had any trouble out of the cheep ones. We don't USE them as much or as roughly as some of the bigger haunts. We've rarely had one break, but when they DO give up the ghost or get lost or dropped we don't cry over it.

    I had a middle of the road fogger here for close to seven or more years and it STILL works well. That's because I rarely use fog machines. BUT, this year calls for one. So, we'll see how it holds up. If it plays out, I have three more that can take it's place.

    We sell a nice variety of foggers at the Haunted Ventures FX web site (www.HauntedVentures.com) and I personally like the top of the line PRO fogger. I've had a few of them in use for many years and they have never let me down. A huge amount of fog is produced by these units, and the recycle time is rather short.

    Then again, we also sell the smaller and medium size foggers and they, too, have lasted for many years. It's all in the way you treat them. Throw them around and treat them poorly and they won't last long. Treat your equipment well and they will last a long while.

    buy a $20 fog machine at Wal-Mart or Target and use it until it breaks. I bought one from Target 2 years ago, and it still works fine. 8)

    I can't buy foggers that cheap, walmart foggers don't put out the same as all our other 1700w foggers we use at the haunt. I am talking more quality, I have to go high wattage, quality is more the issue here. I know what I am buying already, I am just curious about everyones view on the subject.

    I buy foggers from Springtree Lighting and Audio and I get good prices for heavy duty foggers. I only own 2 heavy duty foggers. I might buy 1 additional this year, every other fogger I own came from Wal-Mart for $20 and they work like a champ. I refer to them as scene foggers because they are small, but the out put is great. I'm outdoors and they still last good. If they break, oh well.
