    Anybody know how heavy a 20lbs. Aluminum Co2 cylinder is? Or how about your 10 lbs. tank? Preferably full weights.

    ship weight plus volume weight (20 lb tank holds 20 lbs) should get you close. I think my 20 lb aluminum tank is about 50 lbs full.

    I had estimated 46 to 48 lbs. on a 20 lbs. tank due to 85mudblazin's post. Thanks though thats good reassurance. Just jockeying some things around in the back of my blazer and I didn't have the weight of that particular peice so it was bugging me on how I wanted to set it up. Thanks.

    In your experience has a 10# tank been big enough?

    I'm going to do a co2 setup, and I was worried that 10# is not enough.

    ow yea its plenty, I use it atleast 2 twice a week, I use it alot to blow out the garage and such since I dont have a air compressor, I also use it for welding which I do about every day for a few hours, I can fill up all 4 of my tires about atleast 8-10 times, it lasts a long time. one of the best "mods" I have done yet I think. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
