Has anyone done this before? exactly how many civilization did it take? long story short, we had an oil spill, cleanup is done, and also we are prepared for a brand-new tank. Household friend has actually a brand-new tank they never used they stated we can have, yet we need to pick it up. Cursory google'ing has actually said the empty tank is around 280lb. No sure exactly how many human being to beg because that help.

You are watching: How much does a 275 gallon oil tank weigh

The location i work has actually uses them. Ns don't think they weigh that much, myself and 1 other human being are able come lift one.


If you have wheels the you can utilize (hand van or moving dolly) it provides it much easier.

I would imply 2-3 people.


I had actually to cut mine in half to gain it out of the basement. It to be the original tank, and I'm assuming the was inserted in the basement during construction (it's "legs" were also set in concrete for this reason we had actually to jack hammer that out) 2 guys carried it the end - ns watched.


Yay, something I can answer! I occupational for a oil tank decommissioning/environmental remediation company. Most of our work are residential.

On the rare chance that ns am top top a jobsite instead of stuck here in the office, I've viewed our crew relocate empty 275 gal ASTs with only 2 laborers. If we have actually a little excavator onsite, we can use that instead, however two burly guys seemed to take care of it perfect fine. I'll asking the crew as soon as they get back in just to be sure.

Make sure you have actually some type of solid level structure for her tank! space you hooking the up you yourself or having actually a experienced do it?

Also simply out the curiosity, was her previous tank over or listed below ground, and how did that spill? I hardly ever see leaky ASTs, however tons of failed USTs. It's a pain in the ass and also the wallet.

EDIT: Just confirmed - two guys, one tank. Make certain to take into consideration how strong you are contrasted to knowledgeable laborers who do hefty lifting choose this daily.
