Lawn Truck Fuel Tank System

Fuel Tank with Pump
New Fuel Tank System has Two Tanks - 37 gallon tank (Regular) 17 gallon tank (Mixed). I Was going to mount onto a lawn truck, but sold the truck. Fuel System is new has mounting instructions with nozzels, gauges, and wiring system. Could be used in the back of a pickup truck or on a utility trailer. Paid $2500 for the Tank System From Super Lawn Trucks in the spring.

Asking $1000.00

What are the dimensions of the tank? I was wondering if it will fit under my dump body.

If you are using zeroturn or walkbehind mowers how many times do you need to refuel them during the day??? Handheld equipment ???? If equipment is fueled before you leave the shop in the morning two gas cans are all you need all day and you still would not use a full can of mixed gas. These fuel tanks are nice but how much $$ are they making you in the end. Do your numbers and you will find it is a waste of money. Why are they being sold for $1500 less than purchase??

who really cares, start you another thread and you can debate the issue, let the guy sell his tank. that is a really nice tank.
