    I would like $6,500 but will consider other offers. I am selling it because I have a 325 gallon Anders tank and have no use for this one anymore. I bought it for another crew that I started in 2006 but the area dried up due to the economy. I also bought an anders riding rig for commercial so this is just sitting around. The pics don't do it justice. It is a dirty but it works like new. Fill it up and you are sealing. It is hand aggitated and also recirulates through the pump. I also have the quick release hoses on it which makes it easy to clean. It has a 9 horse power engine compared to my anders which is only 6.5 and an oversized filter basket housing so you don't have to clean it as much. All in all it is an excellent tank and I would keep it if I didn't get the riding rig last year.

    Here are some better pictures from after I brought it out to be cleaned. I also included a pic of what it looks like brand new. Also included is a pic of my 2001 325 gallon Anders tank after it was blasted and painted.Every two years I take my Anders tank to have it sand blasted and painted. Helps with apperance and prevents any rust. It ususally costs me around $800.00 and it looks brand new. View attachment frontsidetankjpeg.bmp

    I am thinking about getting into the sealcoat and striping business so I don't know much about machines so I have a couple questions,

    how many square feet will a 300 gal cover, does it take longer with manual agitation and could I put an electric motor on it to speed it up, would that be a good stater machine?

    These machines are perfect for starting up. My company is the #1 sealcoat company within the nearest 3 counties and I have used a 300 gallon for over 5 years. Check out our web site and google presence if you would like. 300 gallons will seal between25,000 - 35,000. sq ft. depending on how heavy you spray. If you start to get bigger and need a larger tank in a couple years you can always use this for residential or get a transfer tank. This is the most top notch tank you can get and for less than half the original price. It is built to last longer than any home made tank. You can throw an electric motor on for mixing but it is not necessary. When you are ready to seal just mix it up a couple of minutes or turn on the recirculator and your ready to go. You also don't have to worry about your motor going or any of the parts breaking and not be able to mix your material. If you get a motor put on than you have both.

    They are all over the board!! i have two now and selling one for around $6,000. I bought my second a couple years ago from a bank (repo) so I don't need two. The one I bought is a bigger machine so it works better for me.
