Solar powered automatic gate openers are an excellent choice for drive gates when electricity is not available, if you have 6 to 8 hours of direct sunlight daily.
Cost: Approx. $4000.00 - includs a single gate solar powered opener kit, wireless keypad, exit probe, installation. This is for the solar powered opener supplies and installation only - the gate and post are priced seperately.
Automatic gate openers are popular out in the country so I wanted to place some information about them here along with farm gates - to see more, be sure to look at the Gate Openers page.
Here are some pictures of a typical solar powered driveway gate opener installation:
If electricity from the power company is near the gate location, then a 120 volt system is around $600 less for the automatic gate opener kit, plus 120 volt service allows for additional options that a solar powered system doesn't have the resources to power, like the Siren Operated Sensor for Emergency Vehicles and Cell Phone and land line Communication call boxes.

Tubular farm style gates, right, or the custom fabricated heavy duty tubular gate below, are inexpensive and are excellent for keeping unwanted traffic off of your property.

These gates also stand up to the stress of an automatic gate operators torque extremely well. Priced at around $1000.00 installed without an electric gate opener.
A "mesh" tubular gate is great for animal control and is available in different colors.
Sizes range from 4ft. wide to 16 ft. wide
A combination of two can be assembled to create a double gate as large as 32 ft. wide, which is true of any of the tube style farm gates.
Some large rural estate properties need something a little nicer looking for the entry.
See the ornamental gates on the "Residential Gates" page for a larger selection.
For extra security, a steel "lock box" can be welded onto the post to allow a padlock to be placed out of the reach of bolt cutters and hack saws.
Simply close the gate, place a padlock through the hole in the tongue which is reached through the open bottom of the steel box, and presto - LOCK DOWN!
The only thing that can be accessed from the open bottom of the lock box is the key hole for the lock, there isn't room for bolt cutters or hack saws to operate.
