I spoke with the manufacturer and the cutting/welding kit you will receive is brand new and the cylinders can be filled.

Brand new cylinders do not come with stickers, once you have the cylinder filled for the first time the gas company will provide you with the appropriate HazMat sticker.

Brand new cylinders do not come with stickers, once you have the cylinder filled for the first time the gas company will provide you with the appropriate HazMat sticker.

With that said... some of the new cylinders were painted poorly and look older so this is why the previous customer was having a problem getting them filled for the first time.

If you receive poorly painted cylinders and you are denied from getting them filled, you can contact the manufacturer (Genstar Technologies) for new cylinders at phone number 1-800-333-0811

answer 2
No questions about hazmat stickers or markings were asked when I got them refilled. The bottles had plenty of numbers stamped into them about pressure testing and dates and stuff like that. They looked near exact to the ones I got back. Try another refilling place if the first one gives you a hard time.
