Water-Powered Gate Opener

You can use water pressure from your farm or house to power this automatic gate opener that installs under the ground.
It consists of a hydraulic unit inside a box and a latch mechanism. No electricity is required. A pressure relief valve allows the gate to be manually opened or closed in case the water pressure fails. For cold weather areas, a frost kit is available that uses oil and compressed air instead of water to open the gate.
