    Looking to start residential sealcoating in my area this upcoming year. I have been looking at my options on a sealcoat tank. I, like alot of people on here have a limited amount of money I can spend. I have taken into account that I need to use some of my resources on other pieces of equipment, insurance and advertising. I have been watching craigslist, ebay and different online sealcoat equipment suppliers.
    I have found a few in my search based on the amount of money I have for start up. I have some examples below.

    I have read just about every post here on the sealcoating forum...and I understand that some of the members here have there opinons about the choices I have listed above.

    I do appreciate any comments.

    I tried to click on your links and it said they were no longer valid. How much are you looking to spend?

    If you are looking for a skid loaded tank then I see what you mean. If you want a tank on a trailer then your money is way better spent on one like mine. If those are new on a trailer going for 5-6,000 then doesn't it make sense to go with a unit that costs $14,000 new and used 3 years old for only six?

    When I was looking for sealcoating equipment I stumbled across a pretty good guide to sealcoating equipment at www.pavemanpro.com. It goes over the major systems of a sealcoating machine and helps with understanding what's best for your situation. They also have a good used sealcoating equipment post.
    hope that helps.
