    i have just recently bought a Leonard trailer. i was wondering what the rear gate was rated for. the reason for me asking is because i went to load my z track and the ramp broke from the trailer any advice would be helpful. the mower weight is 1200 pounds.

    If the gate broke from the trailer sounds like poor weld job.

    Are you sure it didn't just slip out of the hinges? :laugh:

    I am dead serious, a lot of gates will come right out when pushed to one side or the other, and mounting power units tends to move the gate some and next thing you know Ka-PLOW!

    Trust me I had mine come off more than once until I fixed it, first it scares the crap out of ya and then it's a PITA to get that joker back on (especially single piece gates, I think you have to have two people, at least I never got one back on by myself).

    Anyhow I would at least check and make sure if that's not all it is...
