We know the spec's of all these(above) overseas made machines, we know how the blower and pump is configured and how they operate and perform. The advertising of these many of these machines claim performance only snowmasters offers, If it not The Snowmasters Brand its not top-of-the-line snow generators representing the latest in quality snow production technology. Snowmasters is America made.
Even those who sell these consumer grade machines make statements which reads as the follows "Leaves a barely perceptible no-slip residue" or "snow that evaporates within a few seconds of touching the floor, leaving almost no residue at all behind". These other snow machines have a great tendency to produce larger agglomerates, which in turn lead to excessive moisture buildup in the surrounding area while the larger flakes looking more like soap suds falling. Plus they don't get much distance.
The Superior features of snowmasters snow machine are high volume- long distance throw with the quality pump and blower, true DMX flake and machine control, engineered quite nozzles and socks. Your paying the same money why not get the best snow possible.

Snowmasters owns the snow blowing technology and if its now snowmasters brand its inferior 1990 models. Some paint the machine to take off the consumer brand name and may even silk screen a name. These inferior Consumer Grade are slanted in the front and will make a larger foamy snow.
example the Chauvet
consumer grade snow machine (pictured above) has the same
basic looks as most snow machines, but it doesn't perform the same as a Snowmasters
Professional Grade Machine. These consumer grade commercially available machines
are inferior and have a great tendency to produce larger agglomerates, which
in turn lead to excessive moisture buildup in the surrounding area while the
larger flakes looking more like large soap suds falling.

These consumer (Chauvet and Antari) grade brand machines that are made in China overheats (they needs to be turn off in 10-15 minutes),are louder, using a gal an hour flow rate, spraying foam snow shorter distances rated at 15' and 8' wide while only costing a few hundred dollars. All of these machines like Chauvet and Antari are snowmasters 1990 old technology and are the first snow machines invented. Antari was the first company commissioned by Francisco Guerra to manufacture snow machines and make them available commercially back in the early 90's.
These early machines that still are sold today spray snow flakes that are more moist with no evaporating properties, so the flakes are bigger and heavier so they won't fly and stay in the air like snowmasters brand of machines. Our snowmasters machines spray a High Volume - High Ranger yet dry light snow traveling 35- 80 ft that will evaporate before it hits the ground when adjusted correctly by flake size.
Each internal part of the snowmasters snow machines are improved and updated/upgraded each year, from the pump to the modulating sock to the blower, to give better performance.
