    Customer gave me a 416 gallon tank. What is this thing worth? I checked out tractor supply and northern tool and ones this size are priced at $550. Is this right. What can I resale this for?

    I might have read it wrong, I have it at my storage shop so I cant go look. What does it look like to you?

    Theres not much to compare its size to in the pic, but if its a 6" lid and those are 18" trailer sides then I guess 50-75 gallons. I could be way off here.

    it's 300+ gallons for sure. It should be on the end molded into the tank. Maybe 2 or 3 bills.

    The sides are 24in. I guess I will just wait until tomorrow and get the measurements so I know for sure. How much do you think I should take off from actual price? There are not many for sale online that are used to compare.

    To me it doesn't look like a 400 gallon tank, but if it is then you can usually figure $.75-1.25/gallon depending on the size, shape and thickness.

    Being used, you should be able to get 50% of what it would sell for in the store.

    I spray with a 400 gallon tank. It fits nicely on my one ton pickup. Good for about 133,000 sqft. Just add engine, pump and reel. What inlets and outlets does it have? You may need a few items of rubber hose etc. I cut the frame in half from my old 200 gallon sprayer and sold the 200 gallon tank along with its saddle.
    Somebody needs this.
    My Chevy truck bed is about 61 iches wide. How wide and long is the tank? My Ford was about 64 inches wide. Fit into a van? Will tank fit sideways? longwise? Will it clear the wheelwells?
