As you browse the wide range of operators available for your next gate project, you will notice that there are two common drive types: hydraulic or electromechanical. Both operator types have benefits and drawbacks. Ultimately, the decision on which type of operator to use comes down to the application.
Hydraulic gate operators have an electric motor which pumps pressurized hydraulic fluid through a distribution valve system.
Powerful, exceptional control of large gates
Sealed actuator with lubrication of all parts
Highly precision manufacturing for performance in extreme conditions
Fewer moving parts
Reliable and long-lasting
Longer warranty period
Electromechanical gate operators have a worm gear which is driven through an electric motor and gear reduction.
Low voltage motor allows for battery back-up options
