    Too far or I would take it. Wide load permits and escorts would cost a fortune to get it up here.

    About $2500- 3500. I just brought a sprayer in wide load from Indiana about that size and it cost $4800. I split the load cost with another guy who also bought a sprayer. The problem is the height, you would need a trailer that is lower then 18", preferably 12". You won't need any escorts for 10ft wide my sprayer was 12ft and didn't need any.

    It was to far for me to grab. I just bought a 8000 gal fiberglss one for $ 300 off craigslist, liquid cal supplier told me plan on 40-60 cents/gal, for the right tanks ( $3200-4800 new). This tank was orginally bought to hold brine for a fruit plant, so it was designed for the weight. From my understanding you can't just use water tanks as cal is about 12 or 14 lbs/gal. I guess he has a demand for used tanks also, he said if I come across more to let him know, he has some towns looking.

    We got it on with a skid, and some long ratchet straps. After it is empty it doesnt weigh that much.
