    Admweld, I dont remember how many gallons but the tank I built measures 48" x
    8" x 16" which is 3.55 cu ft. There are 7.48 gallons per cu ft which comes out to
    26.55 gallons.

    My tank is about 3/4 full.

    My guess would be that I put 20 gallons in and have never had a problem.

    Hope this helps.

    Portable I like that design I think that may work for fitting behind my underbody boxes along the frame rail.What gauge did you use I,m thinking 12 ga. should be fine also did you use hot roled or cold rolled to fab your tank,does it matter?

    AdmWelding, I used 12 ga. P&O, It doesnt give you mill scale on the inside after welding which can flake off.

    The nice thing about all hydraulic verses electric over hydraulic is you can run it all day without having battery issues.

    I was thinking cold rolled for the same reason mill scale coming off inside the tank.You think cold rolled 12 ga. is fine?Or do I need to use p+o, the reason I ask is I don,t now if it readily available from supplier.

    I think the 20 gallon is way over kill for that size unit?

    I have a 3-1/2" dia. boom lift cylinder.a telescoping cylinder inside the boom 2 outriggers.Portable suggested this size and has about the same crane.S berry last thing I want is to build a tank and run dry and wipe out my pump.More will stay cooler correct?

    Admweld., To be honest with you I cant say that Sberry is wrong or not, I built mine back in 1999.

    On the flip side I dont think that would have been something that I would have just guessed about.

    I dont have hydraulic out riggers so yes, You will need more volume than me.

    Better to have too much capacity rather than not quite enough. This larger quantity of fluid in the system will help to dissipate /absorb more heat. If over heating is a concern, you can weld some 1/16" plate rings around the outside of the tank to act as cooling fins like on an air cooled engine and or add an oil cooler in the return line to the tank.
