Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely satisfied Exactly what i needed. The employee that assisted me was knowledgeable and helped me every step of the way. I didnt know what size i needed and he helped me decide to go with a larger tank ( less times back to refill) there nothing worse that stopping half way through a job to get more shielding gas.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not what i expected From the website I thought I was going to be getting a new tank, not just a cheaper exchange program than AirGas, But in all fairness this was a very simple program to get into and they are open on the weekends- just call to make sure they have your tank size in stock to exchange.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Price Effective and Convenient My local gas supplier has similarly priced gases. However they are only open M-F and charge more in one year of rental fees than the price of buying a gas cylinder from Tractor Supply. Buying the tank from Tractor Supply saves money and makes it possible to pick up gas on Saturday and Sunday. This is price effective and convenient for a hobby welder. This size tank is good for approximately 3 hours of continuous welding. This makes it a good size for hobby welding.

What are dimensions of this cylinder? Specifically it's overall height with and without the cap.

Asked by: Sanity
The cylinders we purchase are 80 cf, HT 32", diameter 6.6", and weight 53 lbs. There are other types that may vary from this size, but this is what we purchase. Since we are a customer owned cylinder exchange business, there may be other tanks in our fleet across the country, we classify size by cf. So if someone had a 80 cf cylinder that was shorter or taller than what we typically purchase, it would still be a #3 since it is 80cf.

When you buy a cylinder does it come full or do you have to pay to fill it?

Asked by: Charlie penn
This part number is for the cylinder only. You can exchange your customer owned cylinder for a full cylinder at the store for $44.99. If you do not have a customer owned cylinder to exchange, you would need to purchase this cylinder ($299.99) and the content (gas) inside of the cylinder for $44.99. Total price would be $344.98 plus tax.

Do you carry 100% Argon gas

Asked by: Buckrub1
we do carry 100% argon, but not at all locations. If you could tell me what location you are looking to purchase at, I could see if they carry it, or if we can get it for you there with a special order. Feel free to contact me directly at

I recently purchased a tank from a welding company I was wondering if I could get it filled or exchanged through tractor supply?

Asked by: Timsmis
If it is a customer owned tank, size #3 (80cf.), yes, it is acceptable for exchange. The only customer owned tanks that must be Thoroughbred Blue for exchange are size #4 ACE (145cf), and high pressure tanks 240 cf or larger.

Does the #3 tank work well with a Mig welder cart?

Asked by: Harry10
I am not sure which mig welding cart you are referring to, but if you are talking about the Hobart Arc Welding cart with cylinder rack (SKU 385144299), then yes, this cylinder would work with that cart. The cylinder in question is 6.6" in diameter, and weighs 53 lbs.
