I am making a soil container of size 1meter x 1 meter x 0.60 meter or (3.2feet x 3.2 feet x 1.9 feet)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

with soils in it, it weights approx 2000 pounds/900 kg.

I want to know, how can i reduce the downward force of that 900kg.

(the bottom of the container can be slide open, hence i need a lower downward force, so that its lighter to slide)

I found a way to do that by putting a beam on the middle of the container, is there a more effective way?

Thank you geniuses
