Default 50 lb cylinder?

so i posted a wanted ad on craigslist for a 20 lb co2 cylinder, and got a response from someone with a 50 lb for pretty damn cheap. any reason besides weight/size that i shouldn't pull the trigger on this bad boy?

How are you going to transport it for re-fills?

it's a little under 5 foot tall, i could easily get it in my SUV to transport... once every 6 years when it's empty

Aside from the 150lb weight you would need to be able to lift...check with your local gas shop to make sure they exchange 50's.

Then go get it!

the shops around here only rent 50lb and larger tanks . Just like the big welding tanks . So be careful you may bring it in and they say"thanks we have been looking for this one"
