How a Heavy-Duty Weld-On Gate Hinge Improves US Automatic Gate Opener Performance

If you have a durable gate and a USAutomatic gate opener, you may forget about one thing – the hinge on your gate. After all, no matter how well a gate opener and gate work, if the hinge is not strong enough for your gate, you’re in for a not-so-great time when that hinge makes the gate sag or hang ajar. Especially if you are using your hinge on a farm or ranch gate, you’ll need something sturdier to help you out.

Two of the most popular USAutomatic swing gate openers, the Patriot and Ranger, have multiple versions to help you get the most out of your gate opener.
