    mowpart.com guys might sell you one at their cost plus shipping if you order it online.

    Why on earth would they want to sell at their cost plus shipping? I believe they are in the business to make a profit, just like most companies selling parts over the internet.
    Why don't you just go to your local Redmax dealer and check the price? You might be surprised at how inexpensive a fuel tank is.

    I don't see how you could buy one for less money. You could buy a new trimmer and use the old one for parts. All parts cost much more in relation to buying new unit. I just bought a new carb for a 27 hp kaw and my cost was 247.00

    Call some dealers or other LCO's and see if they have any junk units that may have good tanks on them.

    Just get some JBweld and patch the hole I have done many many plastic tanks on trimmers, mowers and never had any problem.
