The trailer has a side step on the front of each side. The split gate is spring loaded, with 2 heavy springs on each side, so 4 total springs. For ramps as heavy as they are, they are easy to lift. That was important to us, being easy to operate,and I think Coyote did a great job making what I wanted.
Also the "fit and finish" is outstanding. No sharp corners, beautiful welds, very nice powdercoat paint.
