Tanks for sale

I am not where I can look at them, but is this a good buy for someone?

The buyer should determine if the tanks have current hydro tests (required every five years) and current visual tests (required every year). A hydro test costs about $30, a visual about $15. So that $50 price could quickly go up to $95 depending on how current the tanks are. New 80cf aluminum tanks go for about $150. These tanks look like they are a little more than "lightly used" so if I had to get a hydro and a visual, I think I would go for a new tank rather than paying $95 for these used ones. Also the tank on the left looks a little smaller than the other three; the buyer should verify that it is actually an 80cf aluminum.

carpe diem!
