This Drive-over Gate Doesn’t Require Electricity and Is Ideal for Farmers and Ranchers
Whether you have on a farm or a ranch and need to keep livestock inside, or own a small or large property and don’t want your pets to run away, there’s a gate opening solution that doesn’t require electricity. It’s called the Bump N’ Drive gate opener kit and it’s designed to open gates without using electricity, but instead uses solely mechanical and gravitational means. It allows farmers and ranchers to enter and exit their properties with ease from the comfort of their own vehicles, which is especially helpful when the weather is bad and the terrain isn’t ideal.
The Bump N’ Drive gate opener kit is easy to install, is time-saving, and economical. The kit includes all of the hardware, such as heavy-duty bumpers, hinges, locks, and adjustable gate latches to easily mount the components on new or older gates. (This can be done in just 5 easy steps!) The gate latch can be adjusted in increments to hold open for up to 45 seconds.
The Bump N’ Drive, which weighs 58 pounds, can be easily opened by gently pushing on the PVC-sleeved bump arm on the gate with your vehicle at a slow-rolling speed. Once the gate opens, you can proceed without stopping and continue pushing the bump arm until the gate swings entirely open. It will remain open for several seconds (according to your adjustments) before closing slowly behind you. While it’s most compatible with pipe rail gates, The Bump N’ Drive gate opener kit also fits on many other kinds of gates. Measuring 32″ x 25″ x 8,” for gates 12′ or longer, it is recommended to use the provided gate wheel.
Bump N’ Drive can be used for an array of vehicles – from RVs, semi-trucks, farm vehicles, and pickups with trailers. Plus, it’s also used on golf courses. According to the company, Bump N’ Drive was mainly designed for use by vehicles with a true bumper and without any attachments on the front end of the vehicle, or for passenger cars that are very low to the ground.
