NorthStar Spot Sprayer Tank - 16 Gallon Capacity
The tank appears to be well made. Mounted it on a cart with a wand and a boom to pull behind a lawn tractor. It has useful mounting holes on bottom and on side. It drains well toward the drain opening on the end. I'm really pleased with the purchase.

Well built tank. Filler cap seals.
This is a very well built tank. It is marked 16 gallons, and I found it will actually hold that much (unlike other tanks). The filler cap contains a seal which I find useful to keep the unit from spilling fluid when transporting. I like the drain fitting as this is not found on the other tanks I have used in the past. And the price is half that (at least) than the more common tanks of 15 gallon size on the market. I highly recommend this one.

I had a sprayer that had developed a leak. I tried to patch it, but solution ran everywhere! When i saw this tank at such a reasonable price, I couldn't pass it up. It had all of the necessary screw locations to mount my existing pump and brackets. Thanks Northern

This tank was an excellent choice. My pump fit exactly. The mounting points and hardware worked like a charm. I am just giddy about my purchase. Keep up the good work Northern tool.

I purchased this tank to put in the bed of my pickup to hold water/methanol for injection into my engine. This has to be by far the best price for more capacity than the "special" tanks retailers sell. The water pump mounts on top perfectly and I use the drain hole with a fitting for my pump intake line.

Super Product to use as a Fuel Cell / Gas Tank
I purchased this product to use as a Gas tank on an automotive project, I ended up converting it into a Fuel Cell with Foam inserts to limit the unbalanced movement of the fluid inside. I am just loving it.
I sealed off the lid with loctite and modified the lid also to accept a Fuel sender unit and relief fittings.
- Sturdy and thick material
- Large lid cover provided good access to the inside of the tank
- Mounting tabs and Strap grooves makes installing this product a snap
- Very durable construction.
- None so far

Works on its side, too
I rarely purchase stuff to use as originally intended by the manufacturer. I am using this tank to provide additional cooling for my Diesel truck when hauling a heavy trailer over Donner Summit on I-80. It is strapped on its side (rotated 90 degrees from normal) to the frame of the truck and filled from an RV filler mounted on the side of the service body wall. I sealed the dome lid with silicone to keep it from leaking. The built-in threaded inserts greatly simplified mounting the pump and attaching the tank to the brackets I fabricated to support the weight of the water.
My only surprise was reading the volume capacity on the tank - 14 gallons, not 16.

Purchased tank to add to hood of tractor, the threaded mounting holes on the bottom made this a snap, I was also very pleased with the thikness of the material of the tank, looks to be 1/4", the lid is also wide for easy filling

NorthStar Spot Sprayer Tank — 16 Gallon Capacity
Great value for the money. I use it for spot watering of new plants/trees around my property. Just set it on back of my ATV and fill it with water or water/fertilizer combo.
I hooked a short 10 foot hose to it with a shutoff valve. Works off gravity feed perfectly.
