The front gate & side doors are mounted flush to the floor & made of flattened expanded metal which provides a smooth "slide" exit for unloading heavy bales without lifting.
The "see-thru" front gate is E-Z to open with its pressure release latch & EZ lift spring. It serves as a platform to begin unloading. Bales unload easier starting at the front, then unloading the rear half thru the side doors. It's called "LIFO," last in first out. However, rear swing gates are available as an option.
E-Z Trail floors are designed lower, lighter, stronger, & longer lasting. The 2x8 floor boards and 4x8 sills are made of Southern Yellow Pine treated for long life. The special cut sills are 27% stronger than commonly used 6x6 sills, according to the University of Wisconsin Forestry Dept. The floor is framed all around in steel for added strength and warp prevention. Since there are fewer collection points for residues which cause wood decay, floors will stay cleaner and last longer.
The side doors open to form a horizontal platform, or tilt down 45° for sliding bales into a conveyor.
