The Alpha 900 is the lowest priced of all Rosco fog machines, but it has a large volume for such a small machine. Weighing less than 12 lb. (5 kg), the Alpha 900 delivers quite a punch for a machine with a 1000 watt heater. The Alpha 900 is operated from a hand held remote attached to a 30 ft. (9 m) cord which has a simple ON/OFF switch. Alternatively, the machine can be operated from an optional Wireless Remote Control that can run the machine from 30 ft. (9 m).
