Mechanically driven gate openers are an excellent choice for farms, ranches, and agricultural properties where electricity availability is a problem. Moreover, Bump N Drive gate openers which use a mechanical kit to open farm gates just upon the vehicle pressing on it are quite affordable. Entering your farm by opening the gate without any external assistance or alighting from your vehicle provides a highly comfortable experience as you can drive along uninterrupted. As soon as the bumper of the approaching vehicle touches the gate, it activates the gate opening mechanism that opens the gate completely, thus making way for the vehicle to pass through. Achieving automation without using electricity makes the gate opening kit completely eco-friendly, which is an added benefit.
Affordable and convenient
Convert your existing farm gate into an automatic gate by installing upgrade kits that automate gate opening and closing by leveraging mechanical power derived from the bumper of a vehicle hitting the gate. Although inspired by the automation technology used in electric gate openers, the upgrade kit does not use electricity but utilizes mechanical energy to automate the gate opening and closing process. The technology used in the upgrade kits is less sophisticated and less costly than electrical gate openers but equally effective and even easy to maintain as it is a low maintenance device.
Ideal for any types of gates and any location
Farm and ranch gates are usually pipe rail gates for which the automatic the gate opener kit is ideal even though it can work equally well on other types of gates too. Since the kit is a mechanical device fitted to the gate, it can operate in any location, including places where electricity is not available. Since farmlands are very large, having access to electricity across the entire area, which may be necessary for installing electrical gates is not always feasible, but the bump gates are the perfect solution in such cases.
The user-friendliness of the mechanical gate opener is evident from its operational features as well as ease in installation. You can install the gate opener kit yourself in 5 easy steps. Not only it is easy to fit the kit on the gate, but the installation video that comes along with it makes things even easier. By following the instructions, you can install the kit quickly without any hassles. Such is the ease of installation that you would like to install more kits on the other gates of the farmland.
By doing your installation, you save money on the already affordable gate opener kit that draws its inspiration from farmers working on a 2-million-acre ranch that had only a few fences. When the driver of vehicles approached the gate, they would lightly press against it with the bumper of the vehicle to open it so that the vehicle could pass through. Tying an old tire on either side of the gate protected it from any damage.
These gates are completely environment-friendly, and it will not be wrong to term these as green gates.
