Electrical door opener

davestexasMay 19, 2011

I'm looking for suggestions for a method to install something like a garage door opener, but for a 4' wide wood fence gate. I want to be able to open the gate and ride though on my cycle and then have it close/lock. Any ideas? I appreciate all responses.

This is another gate opener that will use solar, or DC with a transformer. It also will open dual gates. Has a lot of options. Take a look at Amazon or just google. "Mighty Mule".

Thanks Don for the suggestion. I'll call a dealer and see what's needed/cost to install.

Thanks pointe man for your suggestion. I'll go to the local Tractor Supply store to see what I can learn after the 1st guy comes out and I have some information. Likely go with the Mule.
