  • You should of left the 4x4's longer about 1 foot on each end, then put the dolly sideways. The dolly lifts the frame high enough to slide forks underneath the 4x4's, but skill saw an inch off the bottom in sections for forks to slide into (this will keep the heavy load from sliding left/right when carrying with the forks to and fro. Best to have a wider balanced fork load. When the box is full you will have a heavy cube of fuel and hard to balance on tight forks. How are you getting in and out of the truck bed to go fill it (forks), so make sure you don't drop it with a tight fork lift. Why didn't you just cut 6" on the pipe? It extends. So cut 6", cut the suction holes, extend the pipe, then place in box. It will collapse as you push down, and will be at the bottom, and not bottom out. Thanks for all your great video's and including us in your life.

  • That's awesome looks like a pretty handy tank to have around glad you were able to find a way to make it easier for you to keep diesel in bulk

  • I’ve followed a few other so called “off the grid” You Tube sites and you and your family are the best in my opinion. Your lovely wife keeps you on your toes, and both your son and daughter are destined for success...Oklahoma senator or congressman/congresswoman or whatever they want to become.

  • I understand your idea of a shorter upright pipe but make sure not to make it so short that changing the filter would be difficult. Keep up the great work.

  • I love watching you feed the animals. When I watch Flair feed his it's like Night at the Thunderdome crossed with Mad Max, a total mad house. You sit on the dang bucket in amongst them all and they're all calm as could be!

    DaveDaveOy oldin
  • If you forget to fill the small diesel cans then you can not keep the large tank filled. I like the furniture dolly concept. Keep the filter pipes the way you have them. You will be glad you did. 55 gallons of diesel should weigh about 350 pounds.

  • Daniel good Idea. My uncle had something similar for his farm. Do you need to add a stabilizer additive for Diesel as you do for Gasoline? Thanks for the videos, watch all the time.

  • I would add washers under the mounting points to keep any moisture from accumulating and rusting the mounting point.

  • I just had some forks I just got rid of!! Dang it. I'm in MO right now but we're moving to TX soon. I so could have delivered them on my way since we have to make a stop in OK. Sucks you didn't make this video a few weeks ago.

  • Why not just roll the tank underneath the shelving on the floor level since it's already sitting on wheels? Seems secure enough like that to me.

  • Don’t forget Murphy’s Law, if there’s even a chance that pallet will fall off the dolly it most certainly will. With my luck it’d be full of fuel when it did.

  • Why didn't you just buy a farm tank? Last time I bought one it was 150.00 they hold 300 gal of fuel. The fuel guy brings it to you. All you have to do is drive your tractor up to it no pump needed they are gravity flow.

  • If you have any kind of air compressor, you can make a transfer tank easy , use a regular water hose hydrant , solder in copper tube to reach the bottom put in small bung , drill big bung plug for a valve stem , use air pressure to move liquids, how I used a hand pump , for moving water and such , when I lived off grid on a ranch .

  • It was funny when Bear chased the goats 🐐 out of the feed pan he decided to chow out of. He’s done it before but he was far more serious this time 😀😃😄😁😆😅😂🤣🥲☺️😊 I was sincerely impressed with your Diesel Tank. Especially knowing that the wheel base supports 1,000 lbs. I always enjoy viewing projects through their completion. Next project a Sawmill? 😉 We’ll watch whatever you endeavour. I know I enjoy them as everyone else does. Y’all have a blessed day today and every day. 😊❤️🌎

  • Watched another channel where he was sawing logs. He had a tank like yours with a hand pump. Sure makes it look easy. Besides you work hard and deserve it.

  • Nicely done! I'm looking to do the same thing. Stating the obvious, but keep the spin off filter in mind when shortening that length of pipe.

  • My dad built one of those and well just use the forks on the tractor and put the tank in the back of the truck and take it to the co-op and fill it up with fuel and we’ll be good for a while

  • Great video Two boards on the bottom might help supporting it if you was worried about the 4x4 slipping off the dolly

    Charles HunterCharles HunterOy oldin
  • Maybe you could build a platform on top of the dolly to give you more surface to set your drum on. A piece of 3/4 inch plywood would probably work. It was so nice to see that Freedom is bonding with you and is eating out of your hand. I guess sitting on the feed bucket has really brought the animals to you.
