Default Help me choose a linear actuator

Hi! I want to put myself a linear actuator on the sliding gate to the cottage. I looked in the internet, there are a lot of offers and the prices are very different. Maybe there are people here who understand this and can advise me what type of actuator is better, manufacturer and where to buy? I will be very grateful.

Need to know the max force and stroke length. Presumable you want one thats IP rated for outdoors (IP67 or better)?
With a gate actuator you have to consider safety, ie don't make a death-trap.

Yes, I saw this example, but I need something like an all-in-one with a remote controller. Any ideas?

I think this is what you are looking for: https://www.amazon.com/CO-Z-Automati...85408075&psc=1

Usually once I find the right search term I can find a number of options. Good luck.
