Westheffer Co. Tanks

Just got back last night from our trip West to Lawrence, Kansas - home of the Westheffer Co. We went down to pick up the tank we ordered - 275 gallon split tank.
Tank on one side is 185 gallon, and 90 gallon for the mating part.
Electric hose rewind.
Electric start.
Jet agitation.

Pretty excited to get this thing mounted on the truck once the weather breaks and I don't have to worry about freezing anymore. I will get some pics this evening of the tank/motor/hose rewing assembly.

Congrats Striper!
Where is the link? What kind of motor? Own battery or use vehicle battery? Looking forward to pics--be sure to wax it first. It will never be cleaner than right now. Does the motor have protection from rain and from solution dripping off the hose?

Congrats! Westheffer built our first unit, and we still use the same design. Westheffer is QUALITY for sure. Did they use a Tuflex split tank? Looking forward to your pics.

Nope -- not ours. I'm a tight wad I still use the same Tuflex split tank in my truck that Westheffer installed in 1991. These tanks last forever, and they look professional.

Good choice on your part for using Westheffer. Fine folks & high quality equipment. Nice job StriperPro!
