Appreciate the thought but I'm not going to run races with it, just move it forward a little to be able to clean up the dust and such behind it.
Oh and it's the 120H that has wheels.
Finally got the new tank in the house on the stand, only used 12 wheels, but looking at it I think it will be fine. To make a long story short, the tank gas been beside a ac
vent for 8 or 9 years, salt creep & such killing the vent in very short order. I have contacted to have the vent moved so I can actually move the tank 8 to 10 inches away from the door. Now sure when the ac
guy will be able to do this so I either have to wait on him to get done, or make a way to move the tank once loaded, hence the wheel idea.
Now this is not a factory stand, I built this stand using plans found here on this site and you could drive a truck over it and not be afraid of it coming apart.
