500 Gallon Tank Weight?

Recommended Posts

Pulling 500 gallon water tank on R608F pumper for refurb. Any estimates on tank weight? Looks to measure 67 1/2 x 113, maybe 3/16 thick plus baffles. Any help is appreciated.

So is it a round tank?  67" dia x 113" long?  Using an online calculator that is about 1300# for 3/16" wall,  though that does not take into effect the end plates or baffles.  Adding a few hundred pounds would maybe get you in the ballpark.

So using that calculator it is 400# each panel(1600# for all four sides).  The ends are 250# each.

So that makes it 2100# just for the tank.  Add a few baffles(say #200 each) and you are at 2500# for rough numbers.
