Any alternative to Ecogate??12/15
Other than fabricating my own gates.
I like the idea of the system, auto on/off of DC plus auto open/close of the gate.
Has anyone found a similar system that functions the same but does not cost as much?
anyone else consider this setup for their shop?
I put in an Ecogate system when I set up my shop 14 years ago. Best return on investment of anything in the shop. Just think: you never have to stop and turn on the dust collector or open a gate before using a machine.
At the time, customer service was outstanding -- I talked to the inventor/owner about questions I had. Haven't needed any customer service since.
If cost is an issue, look for used. They're around.
How much do those systems cost?
iVEC Systems is an alternative. They're not as familiar a name but they have solid equipment and support.
