Item #: 4020-06
Our Gatemaster openers are compact, simple-to-use manual tools for hard-to-open gates.
Through planetary gear reduction in the Gatemaster head, the worker's handle effort is multiplied 18-1/2 times for Gatemaster I — a considerable mechanical advantage. A maximum torque output of 3,200 ft.-lbs (enough to open almost all gates) can be achieved by only 173 lbs. of handle effort. By comparison, the same effort on a 6 ft. pry bar would only produce about 1,000 ft-lbs. of torque.
Gatemaster II includes a torquing unit which further reduces the input effort to only 35 lbs.
There is no loss of effort when using the Gatemaster. The output torque is sustained until the gate opens or the operator releases the torque.
Weight: 35 lbs.
