    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

    Referring to the attached drawing...

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