O.K...you're right...I saw a red Birchmeier there last year I think. But they did test-market Gilmour backpacks for awhile, maybe 2 or 3 years ago... Birchmeier's are nice. But they're not a backpack sprayer you'd want to hand over to the "Bubba" on your crew. Keep that one for yourself, of your #1 guy. Some pest control operators use them. That in itself says a lot for them.
