Disclosed is a document drive mechanism suitable for document input in such applications as an outdoor ATM. A document, inserted downward with its face toward the user to facilitate proper orientation, is guided by an open vertical input gate to feed rollers which drive it into the ATM mechanism. The gate, which readily sheds rain when closed, is behind a fixed shield which deters vandalism without interfering with operation.
