AgriWheel Automated Gate Wheel
AgriWheel Automated Gate Wheel

Operating off a battery-powered, 12-volt electric motor, the remote-controlled AgriWheel Automated Gate Wheel moves on a chassis fixed to the latch end of any single gate up to 28 feet long. The battery is charged either by a 13-amp transformer or by a solar panel, which allows the device to be used with gates far away from a source of electricity. The motor, being in the moving chassis (not on the gate or gate post) allows the wheel to follow the ground's contour over a variance of 12-18 inches rise and fall. When the gate closes, it locks using an electronic solenoid; in addition, there is an override key for both latch and wheel. The complete AgriWheel kit includes: chassis, motor, latch, safety beams, two hand-held remotes, battery and charger, and control unit.
