4 Types Of Dump Trailer Gates & How The Gate Impacts Your Usage
A dump trailer can be great to rent or own. A dump trailer allows you to easily haul the garbage away from your property, as well as haul landscaping materials. It is a great way to hauling and handling a large amount of material all at once. There are various types of gate options when it comes to dump trailers, all which impact how you use the trailer.
#1 Side Loading Gate
With a side loading gate, instead of opening the back end of the trailer, the side of the trailer can be opened. Opening the side of the trailer provides one with a larger access area. It can also allow you to load things up from a different angle. It can also be easier to load and unload items from the side of the trailer. This gives more space for you to work with.
#2 Landscape Spreader Gate
With a landscape spreader gate, the gate of the trailer can be operated in two different manners. The gate can be pulled down to create a ramp. This can allow you to easily wheel items up into the trailer. A gate can also help you push material out of the trailer, such as a load of gravel.
With the spreader gate, you can also position the gate so that it is designed to allow material to slowly pour out of the trailer when the trailer is elevated. The gate stops materials from coming out all at once and allows you to slowly disperse the material.
#3 Rear Swing-Out Door
With a rear swing-out door, the back of the trailer is designed to swing out, sometimes with one door, often with the door splitting in half, and both sides swinging open. With a rear swing-out door, you can have access to the entire back of the trailer for loading and unloading. This full access can make it a lot easier to load things up. It can specifically make it easier to load-up large items that can otherwise be difficult to get into a trailer.
#4 Double Action Spreader Gate
With a double action spreader gate, the gate can open like a typical tailgate on a pick-up truck. This gives you some extra space to set things when you are loading and unloading your trailer. The gate on the trailer can also flip upward, allowing you to have a controlled opening across the back. This can make it easier to push short items out of your trailer.
When renting a dump trailer to help you move items, think carefully about what you need to move, and choose the trailer that will help you most easily move those items. For more information, contact a company like Duffield Hauling INC.
