This Changing Times dry applicator is the best I’ve seen. It does a very nice job. It’s a very simple design, easy to calibrate and easy to operate. It’s manufactured from stainless steel components, so it doesn’t build up static electricity. Ultimately you get very accurate application.
Another benefit of the CT applicator, he says, is that it continuously sifts product onto the seed. It doesn’t have the fluctuations in flow rate that are common with auger-type applicators.
There are five screen sizes. Based on the size of the screen and the speed of the rheostat, you have a wide range of application rates. To me, it’s a very good solution for the application rate challenge.

These CT applicators are extremely accurate. That’s why I went with it. I ran one for two years, then bought another one in 2017. We have one now on each caddy (seed tender).
This is really convenient, fast, flexible and accurate. Nothing is wasted. You just put in the amount you want, and it does a really good job. We’re pretty happy with it.

My applicator works amazing! It's very easy to change between screens for different products as well! Tracy and his crew did a fantastic job on getting a new product tested I had requested in a short amount of time! 10 out of 10 overall!

We purchased a dry applicator to apply inoculant to our field peas. Setting up the machine, we changed the screen to the one recommended and set the dial where the chart indicated. I was pleasantly surprised that the output was off less than 1/2 oz of what we were supposed to catch in a calibration run. We then did a different calibration run for a higher output and it too was less than 1/2 oz off of the total to catch.
Very impressed with the construction of the unit and the stand. The charts that are provided are a huge help in setting up getting close to where you need to be.
Had two neighbors purchase this applicator because of our experience. Great product.

Product worked good. Had to take filter out right away so it would flow. Going off pressure settings is pretty tough since products very so much in density and with air temperature. Also replaced hose going to the orifice with 1/4, so I could use the push lock fittings.

The applicator worked well, I got rid of the hose that came with it and used 2 inch EMT, a 45 degree pipe and a piece of straight pipe to let the treat slide to my wagon door. This allowed the enhance to slide really good!

The CT Dry Applicator worked really well. It took a little calculating but once things were timed out it did what it was suppose to.
