    is it possible? I remember awhile back, someone had a technique for getting a larger WB through a smaller gate. Any clue? what would be even better this time around, we have the ability to post little video clips.

    I don't know about a 48 through a 36. You're looking at 10 inches differance. It could be possiable I guess if you put one side in first then turned it so the other side went in. But I don't know. I don't own a 48. I have done this with my 52 on a gate that was too small to go straight threw though. Didn't take the time to measure the gate.

    I don't know about a 36 in gate, but I used to be able to 'swing' my 48 through a 48 inch gate. My 48 is just about an inch wider than 4 feet, and it won't go through a 4 foot gate. But if you back it in, and pivot around the fence post carefully, it will swing through.
