True that how do you have the tank mounted in the trick now? Did you build something?



Well, that's a whole lot more than the $99 I paid for mine. It depends if you need to move it often. I knew I wanted a stationary unit, and I can fabricated a stand with wheels for alot less than the ramaing $300.

We did a tree removal today. This climber used to be my father's full time climber when my father was still in business (about 6 years ago), He is 58 years old and never did anything else in life instead of climbing trees for a living. Sorry for the quality of the pictures, it was a rainy day!

I used to when I did more tree work. Now I split it, give away or take it to the dump.

Copa what did you use to mount the tank to the wall that would support the weight. I was thinking about building a box.

I made a L shape bracket with steel that is both welded and bolted than I used 6 self drilling screws on each bracket to attach to the steel posts on the box body. It's very strong. Let me know how you do yours.
