automatic gate opener

Recommended Posts

ok. i generally leave my driveway gate open. mostly because i'm lazy, and don't want to get out of my car to close it, or to open it to pull in. i'm to the point where i want it closed now. but i'm still lazy. the fence is just your standard chainlink fence, and so are the gates. i think the gateway's 16'wide total with 2 8' swing open gates. they probably weigh less than 50 lbs each.

 i'm looking for an automatic opener. either one that would sense the remote in thecar and open on its own, or one that would open by my hitting the remote. when i google it, i find tons of openers that would fit the bill. if i were rich and had a giant fence with giant gates. does anyone know of any place local that sells automatic openers for us poor folk with cheap ass chainlink fences? i don't need installation, as i'm fairly confident i can handle that myself. i just need to find something reasonable.

Some of the places that install / service residential and commercial overhead doors also do gates.

that is something i hadn't thought of. i deal with jersey pine overhead doors for the shop, and he hooked my up with a new door on my home garage. maybe i'll give him a shout tomorrow.
