Propane/LP Tank for the Cabin?

12 posts in this topic

Wondering if anyone can tell me the best way, or place, to find a used, functional, 250-500 gallon LP tank for the cabin near St. Cloud, MN. We converted the furnace from oil to propane and need to locate a tank before winter. I'm much more interested in buying vs. leasing. Doesn't need to be pretty, just in good shape.

Any thoughts and/or advice...?

Thanks!!

My propane dealer owns my tank and I don't pay a cent to use it.

Long time customer, buy in bulk by combining my purchase with the neighbor, pre-buy in July, and pay cash. Never had to dicker on the price but I do check rates with other suppliers.

If you buy one on hsolist, I don't know how they will ship it to you?

My dealer in I. Falls, MN (lakes gas) doesn't charge anyone a lease fee? On the 250-1000 gallon tanks they let you use them as long as they get them filled at least once a year.

Check with the local propane place in your cabins area, maybe you can get a deal like this.

Hey!!!!

I have a 500 or 550 gallon tank that is in great shape but needs to be moved by monday the 18th. Lets just say the price is flexable. It is in Isanti and you would be resposible to move it.

It is short notice, but it is available...

Guys we need to keep the Sales threads where they belong.

Neighbor_guy, please post your tank in one of the Regional(Free)For Sale forums.

A couple of other things to remember about a customer owned tank is that you are responsible for all the equipment and any product loss due to a leak is YOUR loss. Like the others have mentioned, many companies will "lease" a tank for nothing if you have it filled at least once a year.

I'm sure the admins are not upset. They are just doing what they are supposed to. I should have known better, but I figured he wasn't advertising a sale.

If things don't work out and you need it moved, let me know. roofer750@yahoo.com

    •   Dave, I’ll take a shot at your question. Just like you always say, we can’t be the police for the whole world. On the same lines we can’t be the world’s health and human services department as well.   Do you honestly think that people in need are only in Mexico a couple hundred miles from the US border? There are many people throughout the world that don’t have good jobs and find it tough to put food on the table. What separates those people from the Mexicans a couple hundred miles from the border? Do you want to tell the family in Africa that since they are a couple thousand miles from our border they don’t count?   It’s a cruel world as they say and the US caps immigration at a certain number each year. Is it fair for the people that wait their turn and go through the proper channels to immigrate here and then say oh well to the immigrants that sneak across the border illegally? There is a system in place and all immigrants should follow it whether they are 100 miles from our border or 2,000 miles from our borders.   In a perfect world we could let anyone that has a tough life into the US but that would be an astronomical number of people and our country and economy could not support that no matter how much we tried. What Jesus or good Christians would do is not feasible in today’s world, we can’t save all the people in the world no matter how hard we try.
    • You don't have to be suspicious of religion at all. Spend some time at church, if it fits you great, if it doesn't, you move on.   I went through dozens before i found a home,   If you are going to cast a suspicious eye. Do not start with governing body or a religion.   Start with the family, as that is where all the pressure, guilt and brain washing starts.  
    • You'll still only be able to go so fast with tracks whether you're turning 2 or 4. Sure might add a little speed with just 2, but any incline or terrain, having only rear tracks is just going to get you stuck.
    •     What one did you get???
    • took to long but I finally  ordered the grill this morning!! looking forward to using it!! 
    • 2.20.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report   Hello from the NW Angle!   We still have lots of ice up here, however the snow pack is diminishing rapidly, especially with the warm temps and rain in the forecast.   On the Minnesota side, fishing away from structure seems to be most productive with target depth being from 22-30 feet. Gold continues to be the hot color. The amount of perch we are seeing in our buckets continues to increase.   Fishermen on the Canadian side are still reaching their crappie limit with ease, fishing holes between 29 and 35 ft. A variety of baits are producing including, wax worms, mustache baits and dead minnows.   Until next week, Sunset Lodge Ice Team
    • this thread is making me soooo hungry!!!!!!!!  great looking food guys!!
    •   True.  Trump doesn't either.   Like I said, we should be more suspicious of rulers and oppressors who use religion as a tool than the religion itself.    
    • We picked up a couple voles mid-last week, that must have come from our neighbor yard.  Once the neighbors snow melted, their nest was exposed and it is quite the elaborate colony too.  Got a deer mouse this morning also.
