    Default Need dump trailer tailgate parts

    I want to build a two way tailgate for my dump trailer. I would like to copy the design used on the 2 yard dump trucks. Basically this is a tailgate that will swing from either the top or bottom pins. I know the bottom pins use a cam latch which will release even under the pressure caused by the load. I don't want to reinvent the wheel here, so I'd rather buy the latch parts and install them. Anybody know where I can get them?

    I did buy some parts off Ebay once that were for a dump body. I am not sure this is what your looking for. I think a couple of the pieces you could use with linch pins so you could open it either way. I am not sure if this helps or not. I will take some pics and try to post them for you.

    I don't know where you are located, but in N.H. my spring shop, truck equipment body dealer sells parts. If you go on dump body manufacturers sites Donovan, Galion, J&J, etc. you can probably find info. plowking

    I'm curious why you want such a tailgate on a dump trailer. Most of the ones I've seen had two doors hinged at the sides that folded out of the way and latched to the sides for dumping.

    In a dump truck, you can usually relase the tailgate from inside the cab, but on a dump trailer you pretty much have to get out and do it.

    A two way tail gate allows you to meter the material from the bottom or it can flip down for bulkier material.

    I'd appreciate the links guys.

    Cord:

    That makes sense. Most of the material I've seen being dumped with these trailers has been brush and tree limbs, not soil.
