Yes we do the loading in with the swing door and unloading sometimes with the slider if there isn't room for the big door. Also make sure when you are loading you aren't loading into the sun. It really makes the trailer look like a black hole and they won't go.

Sometimes the sliders arent as good as the butterfly gates but they're always easier until they get bent. The butterfly gates are a lot stronger but you can use a chain around the slider gate to make up for that. Biggest problem Ive had with the sliders is not as much clearance overhead...if you load off of the ground no problem....but if you load big bulls or horses out of a chute that is taller than your trailer floor you can have some problems with the crest or withers clearance on the slider
