Default CO2 tank question

I've got an opportunity to get this 20# tank for cheap but was wondering if the handle stand would get in the way of the regulator. Any thoughts? Thanks

Its hard to tell from the pic, but I imagine the handle is removable. If it's cheap I would grab it.

Looks just like mine I have a 4 foot hose from tank to reg. But the handle does come off just need a snap ring pliers

My 20# tank has a valve guard/handle on it. It works fine. No problem getting at the fittings. I connect the regulator straight to the tank.

The handle isn't fixed... it swivels.

Thanks for the advice. I picked it up today, $40 on craig's list. Craig's list has been good to me lately, guess my patience watching it everyday paid off.
