Fantastic All Around Tanks

"Got two of these babies about 10 years ago and it is good to see they haven't changed them. Started using them to fill skid steers, so they began their life as diesel tanks. Then as the company grew we out grew them.
But they are also nice because they can be easier transfer, even fuel from one truck to another, as long as you don't mount them. We used binder straps and they held them perfectly. Then when they need to go into another truck, we grabbed a bobcat, a chain, hooked to the two lift spots and bingo they were out and on their way to another truck.
So they sat outside for about 4 years before we re-appropriated them for personal use on the water for our boat and jet skies. They are still fantastic and look as good as the day I got them shipped from northern tool. They hold up well in all kinds of conditions!
One nice thing these tanks have that others don't, a silly fuel gauge...totally love it :) You will be pleased."

good tank - great price

"The tank I recieved from Northern Tool was very well priced. The tank it self was slightly bowed on the top probably from welding the aluminum. Because of that I had to adjust some of my plans but all in all it is a well built tank and for the price you can't beat it!
I am actually using it for a waste cooking oil transfer and it works very well and I plan on purchasing another in the near future.
I did a lot of searching online before I found this tank and there is nothing even close to Northern Tool's prices.
I highly recommend this tank!
