Hello everyone!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I need a help from your side. I need the calculation for pulling torque needed to rotate a swing gate hinged at two points.Weight of the gate is 130kg, width 5ft(1.524m) and height is also 5ft. Upper hinge is 0.381m from top and lower hinge is 0.381m from bottom.

Do i need to include the total weight of the gate for this torque calculation, because the gate is supported by two hinges.

what is the suitable motor for this application?

Thanks in advance,
