Will The Gator Work On My Gate And Driveway?

The short and quick answers is YES. The Gator fits and automates all types of applications like wrought iron to farm and ranch gates. Size doesn't seem to matter since we're mounting the Gator on the "open end" of the gate.
A properly hung swing gate will bare all the weight on the hinges of the gate. Which also ultimately means that your gate post needs to be able to support your gate. When this is the case, the Gator Power Gate will function with ease.
Gator's no-flat all terrain wheels provide the traction it needs to handle any type of driveway up to 5 and 1/2 inch slope.  A great way to measure your driveway slope is to get a long 2x4 and place a level on top while holding board level.  Measure the slope of your driveway from the highest to lowest point.
In the video we show you how the Gator Power Gate tracks up and down while keeping your gate level and plumb. Our universal mounting plate allows the Gator to float over different topography or slopes in your driveway. 
Gators can be mounted on most any type of swing gate. Learn more about what our customers are saying about the Gator Power Gate.
Gator Power Gates
The largest gate we've installed to this date is a 400+ pound gate that measures 20 feet long and 6 feet tall. To put a prospective to this figure, most 16 foot farm and ranch type gates weight about 60 to 90 pounds. Wrought iron can weigh much more but operate well with good adjustable hinges.

The Gator Power Gate is a great way to automate your swing gate and enjoy the convenience of staying in the car while feeling secure behind a close auto swing gate.
