Features of our Innovative Lift & Go Vertical Gate Systems.
Pick up the round bale with the tractor and carry it to the traditional gate. Then……
Get off the tractor (1)
Open the gate while cursing at the snowdrifts in your way that you have to push the gate through. Chase the cows that are getting out while they are trying to get at the bale.
Get on the tractor (2)
Drive through, hoping you don’t run over your hay hungry investments.
Get off the tractor (3)
Close the gate.
Get on the tractor (4)
Take the bale to the feeders and drop it off.
Drive to the gate again.
Get off the tractor (5)
Open the gate while fighting the freezing wind.
Get on the tractor (6)
Drive through the open gate.
Get off the tractor (7)
Close the gate after slipping off the steps and twisting your bum ankle again.
Get on the tractor (8)
Pick up another bale and repeat the whole exercise.
Doing the math, if you go in and out of one gate, once daily, that is a total of 8 times getting into and out of a tractor. If you feed for 6 months every day, that is roughly 180 days, times 8 which equals 1440 times you have to go up or down the steps of the tractor to open or close the gate.
At approximately one minute per time that is 24 HOURS each feeding season opening and closing gates. At only $50.00 per hour for you AND your tractor, that corresponds to $1200.00 per year feeding only ONE bale per day.
Couldn’t you use three 8 hour days in a better way?
We have developed a remote-controlled livestock gate which pivots upwards to allow easy entry and exit into feeding pens, pastures, or wherever ease of access is desired. Farmers and acreage owners now can have an easy to use, time saving gate for efficiency and security purposes.
Pick up the bale. While you are still moving at 100 feet away, push the button on the remote and the gate will have pivoted upwards by the time you get to it.
As you go through it push the close button on the remote and continue driving while the gate closes behind you. It’s as simple as that!
No need to ever get off the tractor or out of a vehicle to open and close the gate.

Everything included except a battery;
the gate sells for $2950.00 Canadian.
This works out to approximately 3 years to pay for itself based on feeding only one bale once per day.
