1. Cantilever gate

I'm looking for a formula to calculate load on a cantilever gate. Gate opening is 33' and weighs 1000 lbs. I'm using a 2 post 4 wheel cantilever system. I'm wanting to set my post at 12' centers.
My nylon wheels are good for 3100 lbs each. 2 on the bottom and 2 on the top...12' apart. Total gate length is 45'. Thank you

2. Post a diagram. Explanation is unclear.

If I've understood you correctly, you are asking what the "force up" and the "force down" values will be.
Correct?
