A safety door for the discharge opening of a selfunloading wagon is disclosed herein. The wagon includes a material receiving box having a first conveyor therein for conveying the material towards one end thereof. A cross conveyor is mounted at the one end of the box for conveying the material outwardly from the box through the lower end of a discharge opening formed in the side of the box. A material beater means is rotatably mounted in the box above the cross conveyor. The safety door extends across the discharge opening to prevent the operator from reaching inwardly through the discharge opening. The safety door is self-closing and is opened by the material being discharged outwardly through the discharge opening.
