    Hello I am new to this forum but have been In pest control for 15 years.
    I have 3 birchmeier 2.5 gallon backpacks My question is the larger backpacks ( 3.5 gal and 5) have a handle built into the lid. are the lids interchangeable? My supplier gave me a flat no. but one site I looked at listed the gasket as the same part # for all. The handle would make it super easy to move it in and out of the truck.
    Thanks Mark

    have a few of the 2.5 gallon sprayers. I noticed that the larger ones( 3.5 gal and 5 gal) have a handle built into the lid. My question is are they interchangeable? That would make moving them in and out of the truck really easy.
    Thanks

    Don't know and if no one here knows then you might ask a supplier that sells em to try it out for you to see if they're interchangeable.

    Try another supplier that's not clueless. Do a Google.

    Never seen a Birchmeier with a handle attatched to the tank lid.

    Mark, click this site and click "Request Form" near top to get their phone # and call them tomorrow.

    I see they carry all the sizes and can probably give you the answer.
