The dust allows with other dusters of design to give you a uniform application and a application that uses as little materials as possible to be economical. We're using flour ordinary household flour here as the dust for demonstration purposes. You would put your dust in a hopper just the way it would come out of your bag or container. Close the lid now when we turn the crank the flour sifter is going to sift the product finer even and drop it down to the blaster. This is created when we crank the handle, when it comes out of this duster it will come out like smoke. It will come out in such a way that it will get under the leaves and on top of the leaves and blow all over the place. That's one of the reasons why you need protected equipment because it's going to be disbursed into the air. So protection is key and the reason why you need protection is also hooked back to the fact that you are going to get a uniform application with a lot less material. That is the way to go because it's better for the environment and better for everything concerned.
