Needing honest opinion on how much my used 10lb Powertank is worth. I don’t have the hose and fittings. New runs $600 plus. It is fully charged

I made my own brand new for $190 or so. 10 lb aluminum tank was around $90, regulator $50, hose and brass fittings etc to finish it. No need for those two gauges the Power Tank includes, they're really just there to make it look cool and to charge more. CO2 tanks don't change their pressure until they run out of CO2.

I did the same thing. I got my inline 150# regulator from (now defunct?) Big Air Systems for like $35 back in the day.

And Jerry is absolutely correct on the fancy gauges. Totally useless for CO2.

How often between refills on a 10# tank?

I agree I bought a complete set up from West Air Gas in Escondido for 200ish dollars and it lasts a long time. I did buy the bracket from power tank ... maybe 34.00 give or takes couple bucks. Welding supply shops have everything you need to build a good system
