A removable end block gate is provided.

A high-lift jack is provided to raise and lower the unit. When the weight is taken off the wheels pins are removed to allow the axle to hinge. When lowered the drafting race is flat on the ground. The drafting race has telescopic legs at the outlet end which can be pinned to create a loading ramp.
