Flox, Iris and Senior – when it comes to backpack sprayers, they are classics within the sector. These devices have proven themselves over many decades. Professionals and private users consider them robust, durable and technically advanced. Birchmeier has now reworked this range of devices and made what was already good even better.
The red Flox, Iris and Senior backpack sprayers are proven products for demanding users. Although they have repeatedly undergone minor changes in the past, Flox (10 litres) and Iris (15 litres) have now been comprehensively re-engineered. “Our aim was to further improve the quality of the devices. We worked hard to make the devices even more reliable, robust and maintenance-friendly, with a view to setting standards once again with this new generation of products,” said Jürg Zwahlen, the owner of the company.
Naturally, Birchmeier has retained the external pump system with the proven valve control system and the brass cylinder. However, the legendary system at the heart of the products has been updated.
For example, it now features an additional filter in the suction system before the pump. The pump can easily be dismantled in order to turn the hose outlet 180°. This enables the device to be adapted to the user’s individual needs depending on whether they are left- or right-handed. The pump lever too can now be attached on both sides.
The manufacturer has also improved the ergonomics of the pump lever. With its new design, it has a variable length to meet users’ needs.
The new base is made of a composite plastic material with rustproof moulded steel parts. The materials used for the frame and pump lever as well as the new form are designed to offer uncompromising durability and practicality.
The tanks now have a more ergonomic shape to help prevent back strain even when working for long periods. The click strap system that has proven successful on the manufacturer’s rechargeable backpack sprayers makes it easier to put on and take off the devices, while the new comfortable soft straps ensure comfort during use.
The popular professional hand valve has been reworked too. The handle has been improved from an ergonomic point of view and now features a dual-position locking function. As a result, the user can set the sprayer either to continuous operation or lock the valve to prevent accidental triggering.
With the transportable accu pumpstation BM 1035, Birchmeier Sprühtechnik AG has once again expanded its range of battery driven devices. Equipped with the proven electronic pressure control system, this flexible device can be used to upgrade the manufacturer’s motorised cart sprayers and make them rechargeable. Alternatively, the box can be used as a portable rechargeable pump for existing tanks. With the BM 1035, Birchmeier has expanded its range of rechargeable models and offers a modern and environmentally friendly alternative to motorised and petrol engine devices.
Following the launch of the two-wheel A 50 battery sprayer and the REX 15 backpack sprayer, Birchmeier is once again presenting a rechargeable solution for professional users. With the rechargeable pumpstation BM 1035, professionals benefit from sophisticated, reliable technology and flexibility wherever the device is used. After all, the transportable box can be mounted as a rechargeable battery on the A 75 and A 130 cart sprayers or simply used as a battery driven pump for watering and spraying work.
Although it measures just 42 x 34.5 x 20.5 cm (L x W x H), the box is a real power package. After all, the Li-Ion battery lasts from four to over ten hours depending on the pressure and the accessories used. During this time, up to 1,300 litres of spray solution can be applied.
With this device too, the user can select a pressure of 1 to 10 bar. The electronic control system keeps the pressure constant and monitors important pump and rechargeable battery functions.
The benefits of using BM 1035 are obvious: there is no smell of petrol or noise when working – instead a quiet, zero emission device with Birchmeier’s clever, practical features.
- The user sets the desired operating pressure anywhere from 1 to 10 bar – with a rotary knob for infinite adjustment.
- The Li-Ion battery allows up to 14.5 hours of spraying at an operating pressure of 2 bar.
- The device can easily be mounted on the A 75/A130 cart sprayer or on existing tanks.
- A spare battery can be stored in an additional second compartment.
The wide range of accessories from the manufacturer including the Vario Gun spray gun, the XL 8 telescopic lance, the spray boom or hood and various nozzles make the product even more versatile. More information is available at www.birchmeier.com.
The in- and outgoing hose which allows the device to be used as a transportable rechargeable pump comes supplied.
The BM1035 belongs to «Accu-Power» Line. This «Accu-Power» won the Taspo Award 2017 in the category "Innovative Product".
At the IPM 2017, Birchmeier presents its new two wheel battery pressure sprayer A 50 – once again setting standards for professional cart sprayers. Like the successful REC 15 backpack sprayer, the A 50 has an electronic control system. This allows you to preset the pressure and maintain it at a constant level. It also monitors important functions such as the pump and rechargeable battery. A constant pressure results in constant spray characteristics. This maximises effectiveness while reducing the amount of solution used.
Just like the backpack sprayers, this device offers impressive performance. Depending on the pressure and the accessories used, the rechargeable battery lasts anywhere from four to over ten hours. During this time, up to 1.300 litres of spray solution can be applied (this is the equivalent of filling the container 26 times, deviations possible depending on the accessories used).
Birchmeier devices are famous for their well-thought-out, practical details. For example, the A 50 has a built-in mixing function. When the stirring mechanism is switched on, the spray liquid in the container is mixed with the help of the pump. Not only does this prevent liquid settling at the bottom of the container – it also allows spray solutions to be mixed in the device.
The benefits of the new sprayer are obvious: no smell of petrol or exhaust gases when working, and a lightweight, economical device which like all Birchmeier products is extremely easy to operate.
Powder dusters are ideal for applying diatomaceous earth or rockdust. Birchmeier has made changes to its Bobby power duster and it is now available in a new improved version.
Whether it be rockdust for organic pest control or diatomaceous earth for poultry keeping – the right device makes it much easier to apply powder effectively. Birchmeier has further improved its Bobby powder duster with new, practical features. As a result, the product is now much more convenient and easier to use.
As with the previous device, powder can be applied evenly and economically. The large bellows remain unchanged.
Bobby is now available with various attachments. Depending on the application, the powder duster can be fitted with an angled, conic or flat attachment in order to produce the desired dusting pattern. As a result, the powder is applied optimally to the areas to be treated or the undersides of leaves.
Birchmeier has now equipped its A 75 and A 130 cart sprayers with the rechargeable BM 1035 pump station and thus now also offers a modern and environmentally friendly alternative to the existing electric and petrol models. Professionals can now purchase powerful sprayers that boast the advantages of rechargeable devices. The quiet and emission-free cart sprayers offer optimum comfort when working:
· The user sets the desired operating pressure anywhere from 1 to 10 bar – with a rotary control for infinite adjustment. The electronic control system keeps the pressure constant during spraying.
· The lithium ion rechargeable battery allows up to 14.5 hours of spraying at an operating pressure of 2 bar.
· The high throughput of up to 5.5 litres per minute ensures efficient work.
· The hydraulic stirring unit can be switched on as an option.
· The rechargeable BM 1035 pump station can be mounted on the existing motorised variants in a few simple steps.
The A 75 and A 130 belong to the manufacturer's «Accu-Power» line, which received the Taspo Award 2017 in the category of "Innovative Product".
For years, the wheelbarrow sprayers have been part of the manufacturer's standard range, as they are ideally suited for applications on larger surfaces and for the application of large quantities of spraying solution. Professionals appreciate Birchmeier’s clever, practical features.
· Transparent 75 litre or 130 litre tank with scale and residue drain
· Removable 4.5 litre fresh water tank with spout
· Hose reel with 50 metre hose, running brake
· Optimum centre of gravity thanks to deep tank
· The wide range of accessories from the manufacturer including the Vario Gun spray gun, the XL 8 telescopic lance (max. 6 bar) and various nozzles make the product even more versatile.
Birchmeier Sprühtechnik AG presents at IPM the «Accu-Power» line. This environmentally friendly battery product line won the Taspo Award 2017 in the category "Innovative Product".
In addition to the battery backpack sprayers REB 15 , REC 15 and REX 15 and the two-wheel battery sprayer A 50 , the company now offers the pump station BM 1035 and the wheel barrow sprayers A 75 and A 130 which can be converted into rechargeable devices. This means that the manufacturer provides zero emission free products with reliable technology in various performance classes.
As the first manufacturer the company introduced a comprehensive range of battery sprayers for plant protection. These powerful products are a real alternative to engine-powered sprayers.
Instead of noise and exhaust gases, users enjoy sophisticated technology, highly convenient operation and practical features.
The electronic regulating system acts as a control centre in all «Accu-Power» devices. First used in the REC 15 backpack sprayer, the intelligent control system has proven extremely successful in use.
Birchmeier attaches great importance to providing products tailored to the needs of all users in the plant sector. Because of this, various «Accu-Power» devices are available, offering different pressure ranges, application rates and operating times:
Horticulture and landscaping/ cemeteries: Generally speaking, pest control in relatively small areas is required here. With a pressure of 4.5 bar and an operating time of more than four hours, the REB 15 will be adequate for most applications. For higher pressures and longer operating times, e.g. when applying fungicides, the REC 15 with up to 6 bar is recommended.
Sports grounds and golf courses: With an operating time of more than ten hours, the REX 15 is recommended for applying herbicides. The REC 15 is suitable for smaller areas.
Tree nurseries, fruit-growing and wine-growing: The REX 15 with 10 bar offers the manoeuvrability of a backpack sprayer with a high pressure for spraying range and stock penetration. The device’s high application rate also allows quick and efficient spraying.
Indoor plants: The A 50 cart sprayer or the «Accu-Power» pump station BM 1035 with an application rate of four to five litres per minute are ideal here.
Flowers and decorative plants: For propagation and young plants, high flow rates with low pressures are very important. With an operating time of more than eight hours, the REC 15 is ideal here. If a high level of stock penetration is needed for established or specimen plants, it offers ample performance thanks to a pressure of 6 bar.
Vegetable-growing/ speciality vegetable-growing: Large quantities of spraying solution and a long operating time are important here, e.g. in tunnels at the edge of a company site. With a 50 litre capacity and an operating time of more than 14 hours, the A 50 meets these requirements. The rechargeable A 75 and A 130 cart sprayers are suitable for larger areas. The BM 1035 can be used as a pump station for even larger tanks.
Fertilizer mixing unit for liquid fertilising without a watering can. The well designed dosing system ensures a precise mixture of water and commercial liquid fertiliser.
Application of nematodes in a precise dosage. The well designed dosing system ensures a precise mixture of water and nematodes.
