air tank

Guy here local has a new aluminum 5 gal air tank he bought for his vehicle and never used. I emailed but haven't heard back yet. How much pressure will 5 gal hold? He wants 35 bucks for it, worth it? Here a crappy pic.

If it is a commercial air tank, it should easily hold 150 psi+. Are you going to plumb into an on board air system, or were you planning on filling it and then using to fill tires independently?

If you have to ask what it is or what it does, you don't need it, and you will need help to install it!

Any paperwork to cerify the Max. Working Pressure? Also, all compressor tanks must have a pressure safety valve, does this tank?

Unless you have the paperwork or it has a data plate stating the pressure rating, you just might be buying a bomb. You only need to overpressurize it once to cause a catastophic failure. It might not be rated for 150psi.... maybe 5 psi. you won;t know unless you have the information.

I would not buy it unless it has paperwork or data plate that states the specs.

It ain't no fun unless you get some of it on you.
