Milwaukee Tool debuted the M18 Switch Tank.

The M18 Switch Tank is an interchangeable sprayer and water supply system, which includes an interchangeable 4-gallon backpack sprayer. The tank’s powered base provides power to the backpack sprayer and has a frame with wide straps for comfort during extended spraying applications.

“Through its unique interchangeable tank system design, users can add on additional tank assemblies to eliminate cross-chemical contamination,” said Andrew Lentz, group product manager for Milwaukee Tool. “This also gives them the ability to simply replace the tank only versus the entire sprayer or water supply, delivering lower cost of ownership across the board.”

The system delivers a 25-foot spray distance with no manual pumping needed. The five-mode pressure adjustment knob on the 4-gallon backpack sprayer adjusts pressure between 20-120 PSI, with a lower flow rate optimized for more control during targeted spot spraying.

When equipped with an M18 RedLithium XC3.0 battery, the backpack sprayer provides up to 12 tanks of spraying per charge. Also compatible with the tank is a 4-gallon backpack water supply and 4-gallon backpack concrete sprayer.

Additional specifications of the system include:

  • Dual diaphragm pump;
  • Flow rate between 0.10 and 0.51 gpm;
  • Critical seals are Viton, and other seals are Nitrile;
  • Sprayer handle includes lock-on and lock-off mechanisms;
  • Hose length of 4 feet with the sprayer handle and wand;
  • Adjustable nozzle (small diameter outlet) and fan nozzle included;
  • Weight of 18.3 pounds (M18 powered base, tank assembly and M18 XC3.0 battery);
  • Three-year warranty for M18 powered base; and
  • One-year warranty for tank assembly.
