HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!

Looking for some good tips on the best way to clean a rusty hydraulic tank. I've been watching video's of people putting small pebbles/sand in the tank and strapping them to tractor wheel that's up off the ground. Put the tractor in gear and letting the pebbles polish the inside of the tank. Some of them are quite funny, but seems to work?

I never tried pebbles. I use a sack of playground sand and spin it like you describe works really good. The trick is to let it turn slow and don't get in a hurry.

I've seen guys use BB's. When you are done you just dump them out and use a magnet to get the last few. Much easier than trying to clean sand out of there.

Good point JTF but I never had any problem at all getting sand out. Just a couple of shots with and air nozzle and its clean except for a tad of dust sometimes.

I use the steam cleaner for the final touch so the the tank dries itself then it's ready to go.
