Re: Automated gate entries
We just put one on one of our properties. There are gooseneck number key PaD and we also have remotes so the gate opens for our plows while they are still out on the roadway.
To get out there is a pressure PaD cut into the driveway that automatically opens by the vehicles weight. The gate we had installed opens 20ft wide and is chain driven.
They are not cheap if you need to have all the work installed by someone. Electrical cost alone was over 10k for a poll, load center and burial of conduct and wire for controls and pressure PaD. gate, motor,and install was another 18k.
Finished product and convenience was well worth the price.
