I had a new helper carry 2 acetylene B tanks up 4 flights of steps today. He seems a bit winded and asked why they are so heavy. I told him they are filled with concrete. He didn't believe me so I told him to carry the 2 empties down to my truck parked 3 blocks away. Someone told me this years ago but I couldn't remember why. Or maybe I was wrong?
No announcement yet.
Why is the B tank so heavy?
