View Full Version : another leaf box question

09-11-2008, 08:05 PM
To anyone that has a leaf box on a dump trailer and one with a swing away back gate on their leaf box did you just use the plywood or did you reinforce the plywood of the swing gate with 2x4's or something?

I would think that the plywood should be reinforced or it will warp after awhile or would that make the gate to heavy to swing away while dumping?

2 x 4 reinforce

Still some reinforcement, although I plan to extend the bottom of my box gate a little inside my swingaway trailer gate for more reinforcment. I will be splitting my box door like a lot do anyway.
