[QUOTE=Tinstaafl;7828945]Buddy of mine has a pair of those tanks that live behind some shrubberies. He uses his little John Deere backhoe to hoist them in & out.[/QUOT

Hey Grand pa, thank you...

I'm gonna try that reasoning to buy a backhoe....

I'd think about going with two smaller tanks rather then 1 big ole honkin' one, easier to handle and no issues with no propane, just have a switching valve and run one down and then start on the other with the luxury of having no hurry on refilling the empty.

I think this is a good idea. Much better than running dry when your not expecting it. Also could give you a buffer on pricing if you can wait a month to fill the empty one

Re: Securing A Propane Tank To Wall..


they have to be transported vertically correct? I would love to get rid of my big tank and get a much smaller one.

Yes.
Two smaller tanks is intriguing as I'm not getting any younger.
It would also allow me to transport them in my truck.

The 100 lb tank is on sale at Tractor Supply if you have one around...$130.00.

The Dover store will purge the tank and fill it up.
