Quick question

What does a full O2 bottle weigh? One that is 48" tall at the neck. I
lifted one today up to my 38" high tailgate by myself. I weigh about 180.
Just wondering.

Good question.
I loaded a "T" bottle several times yesterday by myself. It got harder as the day went on.
6' to the top of the cap.
I think I left a testicle behind, on the last lift.

Just about the same as an empty one.

Probably 75-85 pounds. It's not light but manageable.

Rolled that puppy on the bathroom scales last night. 142#.
I do have to admit there's a trick to loading it. You lean it over and center it on your knee in a somewhat kneeling position. Then press down on the valve end, making the butt end go up. BTW, you have your left hand on the butt end. You put the butt on the tailgate, then lift up on the other end.
Still, no small feat for a 60 year old OF with a sternum held together with Super Glue and stainless steel wire..

K... Hercules... we're all impressed! Now stop it!!! Or your next post will likely be titled" How many screws did it take to reconstruct my shattered femur?!?
Those sound like instructions to EMS personnel to load you on a gurney!
..'member that old song... "you shudn't aur-ght'a, rupture your aorta"!!!
Cheers Michael (LMAO)

I'm not surprised!... seeing how you wuz "tanked" the day before ;-)
Reminds me of last summer when I decided to stucco my garage. Everything went fine... until the next day. Damn if somebody didn't sneak into my house overnight and jamb an ice pick into each shoulder!
Cheers

Didn't know there was another human being that had heard that song.
I'm paying for it today, though. The older I get the better I was .........

I had three shoulder surgeries. The last one took longer, two years, to get over than heart surgery, I was back to work in three months. You will notice I'm up at two in the morning for cookies and milk and a pain pill.................

I'm just a young pup, not birthed until 1951, but I see the truth in that line, for sure.

Hah... you're a geezer! O'course those of us spawned in 1952 still qualify for the "young pup" label. ;-)
