Lucky_P, we made a ring of cattle panels and put it in the tire tank. It gives the cows about a 12-18" ring of water but keeps them out of the tank.

So the taxpayers will even buy you a tank to water your cows? I guess its time for us to get on the government tit.

That's a good thing, another proud American not looking for a handout. After the last hurricane in Florida I figured there wasn't any left. Everyone even the rich and famous were ENTITLED to $350.00 dollars from FEMA. The deadbeats and freeloaders were ENTITLED up to $900.00 each. Some of the folks were covering their faces so no one could recognize them, like the criminals do on TV.
I met guy that cut the tires Louisville last here he's from Colorado and said trucking was the major expense in tire tanks. There's a Michelin commercial tire plant in South Carolina? That he cuts blems at and he give me a unbelievable price compared to what you pay. The only thing is I'd have to pick them up.

Thanks HDRider, I could never figure it out,
Mine isn't a government tank, I just used the design.

Lucky_P, where they talk of a concrete top, mine is a metal culvert pipe with a manhole cover for the top. I have also seen them used from a plastic barrel with a screw on top. It has worked for 12 years and I had to take the valve apart 1 time to get the fine materials out that had collected over the years. Put it back together and its working great. Never freezes either because its under ground.

I've gotten used combine tires from local farm tire service outfits - they're more than willing to let you have them, rather than pay the disposal fee. Same for the local custom fertilizer/lime spreading outfit - they have stacks of big tires out on the back side of the lot... will load 'em for you if you'll haul 'em off.
I've not had any problems cutting sidewalls with a reciprocating saw... have only had one that had steel belts in it, and it was no match for the sawzall blade.
