Your saying the guy was driving down the highway dragging these cylinders along the way and thought nothing of it. Hard to believe but it must be true since it is on the internet.

In this case I would tend to believe the OP due the scrape marks along the tanks... That's a WD hitch, too. Love the set up.

Yep, that's scary. Looks like he dragged the bottles for some distance based on the wear marks.

Guessing the safety chains being unhooked didn't make a lot of difference when the tanks blew. Looks like a real Darwin award winner to me.

I hope he has a steering stabilizer. When those tanks blow he will have trouble steering it with the rapid acceleration.

So did he have a singke tank setup, and while parked, did he attach a second tank?
looks like a hold down bracket laying in the tray.

Did he have a brain fade and fogot when he hooked up to leave?
