YankATank US Patent #6530737

A 500 lb. 250 gallon tank can be lifted with one hand

  

 Lift and move loaded uprights with minimal effort

                              

 Paint tank bellys in your yard or in the field

                

One person can quickly pin YankATank dollys on a horizontal and then roll tank through gates and narrow access areas

 

Handles 420 uprights, 120, 250, & 330 gallon horizontals

 800 lb cargo capacity 

Net weight 135 lbs (with dollies, pins and YankATank)

Width 31", length 80"

Lifting ratio is approximately 10:1. If a 500 lb. (250 gallon) tank is lifted  into transporting position on the YankATank, 50-60 lbs downward handle pressure is required.)

The operator's weight is easily and favorably utilized in providing the downward force to lift tanks.

Downward pressure on the YankATank handle to lift tanks is ergonomically much easier on the back, arms, fingers, etc. than when personnel attempt to scoot, lift, scrape, drag, roll or otherwise manipulate or move tanks without the YankATank.

Customer comments

 "The first time I used the YankAnUpright I knew its design was well thought out. It performed perfectly and made pulling the 420lb 120 gallon propane tank across a bumpy field easy. It took 10 minutes to put together and is built very well yet is also light enough to make loading/unloading easy. Given the fact that there are zerk fittings for all the bearings/bushings I know it will last a long time.  Thanks!" 

Jeremy Smith Operations Manager, Vashon Energy, Vashon Island, WA

 

"we are now setting tanks in places we were never able to before. 

This is a "must-have tool" for anyone in the propane business.    We now have 5 YankATanks"    Mike Crawford, District Manager  Ferrellgas, Kennewick, WA 

 

"At Main Care Energy, we serve 12 counties. We were looking for a feasible way to safely and efficiently move and set propane tanks in situations where our crane equipment was not appropriate.  We found this in the YankATank. We started out with 3 and now have 7units! It is unquestionably one of the most valuable tools on the installation truck! "   Marcia Booth, Main Care Energy, Albany, NY

 

 

 

 

"We absolutely love the PolyMinder. It gets the work done in half the time!" Brooks Shepard, Manager, Range LP Gas, Ely, MN

 

"We recently purchased a YankATank tank handling system and received it quickly and in good condition. Since many of our staff are natural skeptics, we immediately headed to the tank yard to try it out.   Thanks for excellent service and an excellent solution at a value packed price! Not to mention made in  America by Americans for anyone looking for a better way of doing a hard task."  Lawrence R Miller, Branch Manager and Partner, Williams Panhandle Propane,Tallahassee, FL

 

"I have nothing but good things to say about the YankATank. We bought ours about two years ago and seem to use it daily. It has held up under all circumstances and helps us operate very efficiently. The YankATank has made two-man sets a thing of the past and allows us to move tanks around the yard with ease."  Ray Galan, District  Manager, Ferrellgas Portland, OR

 

 

 

 

"I like the PolyMinder...it saves a lot of work and time, especially on long pulls. It keeps the pipe cleaned up and out of the way. It is a great tool!"   Bill Smith, Owner, Tek Gas Service, Kent, CT

 

"We do a lot of new construction and we are called to set the tank after the yard has been sodded. This would only allow us to use the YankATank to get the tank in since the truck would ruin the new grass. The YankATank rolls over the new grass with very little damage and little effort making it easy for a one-man tank set. The YankATank is also easy to load on and off the truck with its rugged lightweight construction. The versatility to use with upright 50’s and 120’s as well as horizontal tanks is also a plus." Mark E. Holloway, Vice President  Modern Gas Inc. Albany, GA

 

"We have owned the 'YankATank' for approximately 5 years. It has been very  helpful around our propane yard and also in setting customer tanks. It may be simplistic in  design, but it is a workhorse. We look forward to using the “YankATank” in the coming years and saving our backs."  Ed Congleton, Stokes and Congleton, Stokes, NC

 

I think I bought one of the 1st ones sold. I'm guessing we've had it about 6 years and  considering the abuse it has received, it is still working great!  Just normal wear and tear on an item used at least once a week but sometimes as many as 20 times in a week!  Thanks again!" Larry (Lawrence R Miller, Williams Panhandle Propane)
