    Birchmeier Sprayer

    By Brier on 08/25/2010

    4 gallons is just right for the larger jobs, yet not too heavy smaller jobs. Good to go all day on a tank or two. I've worked with Birchmeiers before and know how easy they are to repair and maintain if needed.

    Straps and pump handle too short

    By Lance on 09/22/2012

    Verified Purchase

    When I received the Birchmeier Iris sprayer the quality looked great. When I put it on with the straps fully extended it fit to tight on my shoulders. If the straps where about two to three inches longer it may have fit. I'm not a heavy person just have wide shoulders. The other thing that needs attention is the pump handle was to short. Between the tight straps and the short handle it would have been very uncomfortable to use. They do make a Senior model which may have been larger?

    Birchmeier Sprayer

    By Mark on 07/05/2012

    Verified Purchase

    I was told by our pest control man that this was what he preferred and had used for years. I purchased one for some job sites I work on and am completely satisfied with this unit. The client was spending $500/month for a landscaper to do just the weeds. It will cost him a 1/5th of that now.

    By James on 09/09/2016

    Verified Purchase

    Ive been exterminating for over 30 years. Its been almost 10 years since I used a Birchmeier and now i remember why, after just a little bit of use I had chemicals running down my back . Pump leaks , wand leaks, I called Domyownpestcontrol and the gaskets are ridiculous , i called Birchmeier and they said they would ship me some over a month ago which didn't come.
