Snyder Industries Horizontal Leg Sprayer Tank - 60 Gallon Capacity, Model# 10637
The tank is exactly as described. However, remember one "important" thing I was unaware of, if you are using this with a pump or a sprayer or anything other than a holding tank, you completely void any and all warranties the second you drill and attach a feeder hole, a pump or anything of the such. Also, the drain in the bottom of the tank does NOT come with a plug or valve! What was more annoying was that Northern Tool doesn't carry the plug needed for it according to their Parts and Service Departments at the store where I picked it up. I was sent to a home improvement store in order to find one. And again, once I added the "after-market" plug insert, I voided the warranty on the tank according to the paperwork that came with the tank. The tank is working perfectly and I have no issues with it's performance so far but, these small things matter a great deal when you use one as much as I do.

tank is lite and easy to see the level in it. i wish that the tank fitting was on the bottom instead fo the side. over all it works very good for what i use it for.

60 Gallon Tank
I ordered this tank to mount on a mobile car detailing trailer. It is well made and functions perfectly. The only improvement I would suggest is at the outlet. The plastic used is delicate when threading pipe in, so some care needs to be taken not to damage anything or a slow leak will develop. Very minor issue when the overall quality is considered. I am happy with the purchase and will buy a larger Snyder tank when my route demands it, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good holding tank.

I use it on a trailer behind my atv for various projects...including minor fire suppression using an external pump. Easily plumbed and filled.

i was suggested by many people to use a drum for my hydroponics due to space and hieght requriement left me no other choice but to find a an alternative, thanks to northern tools i was able to do so at a low cost...
keep me from buying a barrel/drum with an addition to adding a pump, at half the size of a barrel i was able to rasie it to the recommended hieght and with the easy drain adapter i was able to connect it to a pvc pipe with no problem and what an easy to read level and looks professional rather then the tacky looking drum/barrel.....
material to construct this barrel is great was able to drill and tap for additional adapter without meesing up the durabilty of the tank up

Your Snyder water tank was just the answer to providing a temporary water source at our building site. We are building a small cabin in the woods with no electricity. We needed a temproary water source that had some water pressure to mix cememt and other construction needs. We used a block and tackel to hoist the water tank up into some trees. By connecting a garden hose to the tank, we have a good flow of water. The tank is strong, easy to fill, and the allowed us to connect a garden hose to the bottom. The tank is constructed that allows us to atttach straps to connect ropes to his so we could safely raise it up in the trees. Thank you for this product.
