Guys I have been running my biz out of a regular old trailer w/ no gate, ive just always used my atv ramp that folds up, Well ive been making a little extra lately & wanted to put a gate on. Where can i get the gate ? you know of any way to get the steel mesh metal gate from some metal distributor and buy some hindges to mount it myself ? Ive got a welder and can do it myself. Wanted to get out of this a cheaply as possible! thanks for the help

If you have a welder, why not go ahead and buy the materials you need and weld it together from scratch? You will probably save alot of money. I don't even know where you would search for an already put together gate. Just go out and buy the angle iron and expanded metal and bust it out yourelf.

look for one. One that will weld for you and let you buy the metal...this gate cost [in labor and materials] 275.00 US.

CleanCutLawn,

I have a friend in Parkway Village area who weld on the side. He is a steel fabricator by trade. He helped me build a nice leaf trailer in the fall. If you would like I can get you in touch with him. He has reasonable prices also..

I had someone in Benton County, Ms. weld this for me...I'm sorry that I don't know someone who will weld inexpensively in Memphis....However, I can provide you with the name of a mobile welder....but I don't think this is the best choice for you...You might consider talking to the quys located on Summer Ave. near the Kawasaki dealership....on the right headed East...I seem to remember they advertise "trailer repair" right on Summer Ave...they might be able to help you, just talk to them and work something out,...kenny.
