Field Gate Design and construction plans etc ?
« on: February 25, 2006, 11:34:59 PM »
I am looking for simple but effective designs for farm gate to pastures.

I do not have to keep animals in, but do want to keep cars and trucks out.

Thanks Stan

just put 2 4x4 on both sides of the road or path and hinge a 2x4 at the top with a brace underneith it to for a triangle brace that is also hinged, I could draw it but cant get it to post right now, this is a cheap block that you can put a padlock on the end to lock it to the other post or if it is a wide road make a gate on both and a padlock in the middle to hook them together.

Thanks Ryan,

I was thinking along those lines, but thinking about using steel pipe instead of 2x4s.  Was hoping to find a plan on the web showing how they handle the hinges when they use pipe since the weight would be much higher.
