The gate opener utilizes so little power you would hardly notice. You would have to open and close your gate thousands of times before you notice a difference. It sounds extreme until you have tried it out. These farm gate openers are battery operated. The batteries enclosed do not need much in the way of charging, thus fulfilling the confirmation that such small, hand-held pockets of power are powerful sustainable developments if you will.
In this day and age, this is very good. In this era, you are all dealing with the negative impacts of global warming, climate change, high levels of pollution and, of course, the high costs of energy use, still, generally speaking, a high emitter of carbons. Rural farmers and smallholding owners, you could just say, would be bearing the brunt of such a global impact, but truth be told, independent farmers and farm stall owners have had to be self-reliant for many years anyhow.
They have always been far away from the national grid and are thus last in the line when it comes to making necessary repairs during times of power shortages or outages. Anyhow, the innovative sustainable development that is your battery powered farm gate opener requires no effort for the purposes of opening and closing farm gates. Rather, if there is any effort at all (and usually it is none), it lies with the farmer’s truck.
This is what happens. As the truck slowly approaches the gate, it gives the gate a gentle nudge. And the moment contact is made, the gate opens. And once the gate is opened, the vehicle can obviously drive through. The landowner only needs to program the gate opener to remain open for a set period of time before closing again once the vehicle has driven through.
