Crossing gates

Hi All, our gates are getting pretty tired, and we are considering replacement, looking for options and possibly suppliers, we are running on a 7.5 “ gauge, currently the gates are controlled pneumatically through poly tubing, the system does work for the most part.

The latch has been removed and I think I will just be replacing the top panel, I managed to straighten out the other dents fairly well, once the top panel is replaced it will be good enough.

Hydraulic fluid

Re: Installing this set of trucks

Hi, can I assume that fluid is always flowing through the system when the pump is turning and only when the reversing valve is moved will fluid go to the motors?
