Re: Gate

I'm not a welder or fabricator, but that seems very high to me.

Re: Gate

I've installed many, and that seems like a fair price to me. Make sure he sets them in concrete.

Re: Gate

There is a guy over my way that makes them for the National Forest roads. He charges $1,800 a gate and that isn't installed. I'd really like one at my property but not at that price.

Re: Gate

We are thinking about a gate at our camp in Lycoming county.
Where is this contractor located?

Re: Gate

We just installed one as I stated earlier. We set it the first week of turkey in concrete { 2 hours}, then went up Memorial Day and fabricated the rest on site {3 hours}. Yes 2 of us are welders one has his own rig. But 1,800 not installed is a CRIME. 750 to me installed is a little high also, but if you have no resources or skill to do the job go for it.

Camp life,it don't get much better!

Re: Gate

None of us have a welder.An yes he is seting it in concreat.Our land is very rocky.Sure glad he has a posthole digger.That alone is worth $750. just so we dont have to dig the holes.The price is going to be split 8 ways seeing how there is 8 other camps on the road.I know we are going to P OFF a bunch of fourwheelers an roadhunters but so be it

Re: Gate

I think the price seems fair. If you cant do it yourself and you feel ok with the price then no matter what anyone else says its worth it.

On a side not, four wheelers will find a way around it...unless it is completely unpassable on each side.

I bought the best cattle gate Tracor Supply had and set it on 2 6x6's (concreated). Had about $350 in materials and a couple hrs in labor. Your probably getting a better gate, so $750 sounds pretty darn fair.
