    Default Bulk Tank

    Found this bulk tank at an old dairy set up. Obviously out of business. Gave 300.00, i thought it was a deal. Got a line on a 600 gal. tank. The compressor was shot. Just left it at the farm. Oh yeah, there was a cat skeleton under the tank!!

    Any SS tank at under $1 / gal is a deal. While some use the refrigeration, most do not. The compressor is a bonus they rarely come with.

    I do believe WI has a lot more dairy farms. That's a positive for you. I know where more are but, there pretty proud of them.

    Looking at the manhole cover that tank is a Surge Zero Vacuum tank. If You wanted to sell it you could get $800 very easily.

    There are quite a few old dairy farms aroun me with some bulk tanks not being used. Problem is all the ones I talked to wont sell anything so they just sit there colecting dust. And Haynes after YOU soaked in that bulk tank it wouldnt be food grade any longer.
