Horse float tailgate ramp spring RHS 17mm


Tailgate ramp loaded springs are commonly used on horse float trailers. They provide assistance to make it easy to open and close your rear ramp door and come in left and right sides.

These springs are made locally in Australia, so you can rest assured that the product is designed to Australian standards and made to last. Simply install these on the hinge of the ramp and let the springs do the heavy lifting for you.

  • Horse float tailgate ramp spring RHS 17mm
  • Can be used for RHS or centre of the horse float.
  • Leg is 520mm long.
  • This size spring holds approx. 75kg each.
  • Please see chart in photos for ratings.
  • Raw steel may have surface rust.


Note that the tailgate spring is designed to assist with the lifting/lowering and not take the total weight, the ramp or tailgate must overcome the resistance of the spring so that it is able to lay stable on the ground once lowered.


Load Rating Guide

Measure the weight of the door when it is at 90 degrees and touching the ground.

EL = Estimated Load

W = Weight of tailgate in Kg measured at furthest point

L = Length of tailgate (meters)

EL = W x L eg. Tailgate length = 2m, Weight at furthest point = 50

Kg EL = 50 x 2
