Consider adding track sweepers to your sliding gate
These are specially designed brushes which are installed on both sides of each wheel. When the gate opens and closes, they work to clear the path of the wheels by removing bigger lumps of dirt, pebbles and other kinds of obstructions. They assist the smoother performance of the unit, but like all other components they will need cleaning and replacement eventually.

The belt shouldn't be too loose, but have just a little bit of play. If adjustment is necessary, it has to be perfectly accurate to avoid malfunction. You should also check the belt for signs of damage (with the most common ones being cracks). If it is not in good shape, it should be replaced without delay.
