Paxair has them in stock. I think they were like $65.00. I ordered mine from 4x4rockshop $46.00 I also lookewd up the company they buy from and you can order direct from them but you only save like $1.00.


I ordered mine on monday night and had it on thurs. it ships out of southern california.


Were did you get the tank and is it aluminum?

You can fill the tanks at AirGas on Industrial way in Sparks.

Compare to $350.00+ for a powertank system.

Nice setup -- did AirGas pressure test the tank for you too?

I have an old CO2 soda tank that I've been meaning to convert for quite awhile, just never got around to it.

Since it's a new bottle, it didnt' need a hydrostatic testing. I'm not sure if they do the testing or not though. Sierra Dive Center on Grove Street, will do the testing. I'm sure AirGas does though, it's such a big store.

How are you going to mount it? I built mine today
I dunno how I'm going to mount it yet. Probably look into fire extinguisher options, since the 5# tank is about the same size as an extinguisher. Right now it's against the back seat supported by a bungie strap and coveralls :eek:
