Barrier swing gate?

Thinking of getting a swing barrier gate to stop trespassing. Any idea where to buy one? Tractor supply only sells full gates. Tks

if they are like what they call forestry gates they can still go under them , especially on 4 wheelers . I would go for the full gate . hope this helps you

Any competent welder/fabricator can make a gate like that. Some will also install the posts, too. 6" steel well casing filled with concrete, works well. Have them shield the lock, to make it harder to cut or break off. Do what's necessary to keep people from driving ATVs around the gate.

Friend of mine had hunting ground in Alabama for many years. Was originally a church camp on maybe 100 acres or so, had a coupla cabins and a pavilion. Long lane back thru the woods to get to it, gate out at the entrance to the lane. Darn near every time they drove down there to hunt deer or turkeys, someone had pulled the gate off with a 4x4, or had tried to. So he had heavier, sturdier gates made. Three or four, I think?

Told him the fabricator was probably buying free beer for the kids to party with back there, IF they ripped the gate open, or tore it off, so's he could make another one.

When I had a property in Clinton County back in the 1990s I had one installed that a guy was advertising them for sale in the local paper.

Contact dcnr and they will send you the plans to build one for their specs....just alter it for your application. They may even be able to direct you to a welder/fabricator that will make you one.

Anybody can shoot deer on the farm ground....You earn it in the mountains.......

If you already have them cursed multi flora rose bushes on your property, they make great ATV barriers around gates. 25 years ago we had problems with kids on dirt bikes and a few neighbors with horses, accessing our club property via an old roadway on the southern end of the place.

We originally put a dirt pile there to block it, did nothing to keep them out. I eventually uprooted several large MFR bushes with the club's loader tractor and dug them into that dirt pile. Problem solved.
