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

    • should have set up in the grass! Uncle went back for evening set up at a pinch point hen and tom came through to go back to roost but no shot!
    • Beside the fun of fooling a turkey and sticking it witj my bow,this is why I love turkey hunting. Slow smoked with apple on the pellet smoker. 
    • Does anyone have a water driven backup sump pump? They look like the cats meow if you live in town. Or does code even allow them? If they are not allowed what is the best battery backup ones?
    • Got out Saturday morning. Perfect weather. Jakes and hens. Had a new group of 6 hens come in with no tom or jakes.   Did have a yote come out of nowhere right into my dekes. 12 yards. Just as I was drawing on it , it must have scented me and booked. A second yote crossed about 50 yards out. Sticking a yote is on my bucket list.   All in all a great morning.    
    • Good season Wild, onto next year. Should be some changes but I don't expect us to do anything crazy. Need to sign Granlund and Nino and that will use up a lot of our cap space. Can't afford Hanzel and possibly Haula and Vegas will be taking a player off our hands. I'm more interested to see who can sustain or step up their scoring next year or if anyone regresses. Granlund, Coyle, Nino, Zucker, Dumba, Spurgeon and Brodin all had career years, those are good problems to have. They showed us a lot but I think they still have room to grow and that is what we need. We have a nice cast of vets but they are likely too old to lead us to a cup, they would be in more supporting rolls. Hopefully our now seasoned young core and continue to build on their impressive seasons. Always disappointing to lose, even worse when you can't score against your old coach but I like the our team and hopefully we can keep getting better.
    • I'm not the most techy 40yr old out there, so I will try to explain what I'm looking to do and hopefully someone can point me in the direction I need to go. I have a cabin in the Chippawa National Forrest, no phone at the cabin and our cell phones dont work at the cabin either. My teenage son wants to take the wheeler and go riding alone. I worry he's going to get lost or if the wheeler breaks down he can't call my cell for help. When we drive my truck around; the gps in it works all the time.  I know I can put a GPS app on my sons phone so he can track his route in reverse to get back to the cabin. But what if he breaks down?  Does anyone know if there is a gps app that I could "pair" up me and my son's phone so I can see where he is at? kill 2 birds with one stone per say, he can use it to navigate himself on the wheeler and I can see where he's at incase I need to rescue him.  Thanks for the help.
    • Hit the Red River over the weekend for the 2nd time this spring. First outing wasn't great with a handful of smaller cats all under 10lbs. This weekend was a different story as we ended up with 15 cats Friday night. 5 over 10lbs, 2 of which were high teens fish. All caught on cut river bait.  Cats were on the shallow side of the river. Water was high and flowing pretty good. All fish were caught and released. Great night of fishin w no bugs to bother us and very nice weather! Gonna give it another whirl soon in a boat this time. Have a look!!
    • I've never tried my booya poppin pad crashers Yet but are they really bad or just not as good? Just wondering.
    • Well, I got the bow out today and it took about a dozen shots to get it sighted in then I shot this group at 30 yards.    I am impressed with this CB. The trigger is really thing that I'm not impressed with but I have nothing to compare it to. It seems like there is 40 acres of creep before it releases.
