Circuit Board Development

As we transition from Florida to Texas we were able to meet with our electrical engineer Tom Saliga at EDA in Tampa Bay to help us with our second generation circuit board. We hope to have our first set of boards within 3 to 4 weeks as we setup our assembly here in Texas.

Gator Power Gate in Robstown, Texas

Recently we demonstrated the Gator Power Gate at the AgXchange trade show in Robstown on October 3rd and 4th. It was really a lot of fun meeting farmers and ranchers as well as fellow exhibitors. We really appreciate the warm welcome of our new product as we get ready to launch and bring the Gator Power Gate to the public.

Gator Power Gate Trade Show Preparation
We set-up the Gator Power Gate in our garage as we prepared our exhibit for the AgXchange trade show in Robstown. We set the GPG on an 8 foot gate to accommodate our 10 foot exhibit area. It was really a challenge to anchor a fence post down that would handle the weight of a gate and the motion of an open and closing swing. But it certainly worked out. I recently built the bench on the right to accommodate assembly until we are able to obtain something larger.

Stuart on the right was a fellow show exhibitioner selling water treatment systems. We had a great time over the few days. We all had a good laugh during the setup on Tuesday before the show. The Gator Power Gate got away and almost took down a row of curtains behind us. Like I said, there were some challenges in setting up posts to demo the Gator Gate.

We hope you enjoy the terrific response we had at the farm and ranch show. We were able to get several people's testimonies on the Gator Power Gate as they tried it out for themselves. We edited in their comments in the above video. We hope you enjoy.

Please leave us some comments or questions that you might have.
