I think you'll need an extension kit for 8 + foot doors. The unit doesn't come with it.

Excelerator 1 HPc Direct Screw Drive DC Garage Door Opener is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 160.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent garage door opener -- fast, quiet and easy to install. I purchased this online with an ... Excellent garage door opener -- fast, quiet and easy to install. I purchased this online with an in-store pickup that was very easy. I bought this to replace a belt-drive garage door opener that was about 17 years old and had finally stop closing all the way. I installed this myself (with an extra hand at one point from my wife) on April 1, 2017, so it's been in use for a bit over three weeks now. By the way, I have the Excelerator II, even though I purchased this item from the website, the Excelerator I. You can see this in my picture, too. Installation Very easy because I was replacing an existing opener that had the same footprint and features. I was able to use the existing wiring in my garage to the wall remote and to the obstruction sensors. The bracket holding the opener needed a slight adjustment because the length of the track for this new opener was a little shorter than the old track, but not by much. Maybe a 1/4" difference. Altogether, I'd say installation took me about 3 hours, but it wasn't an intense concentrating amount of time. I was still interacting with my family and chatting with neighbors as they walked by. Operation My old belt-drive opener was pretty quiet, but it was very slow. The Excelerator II, on the hand, is a little more quiet and it is VERY fast. It opens in about half the time as the old opener. But the nice thing is that it still closes at a slower speed, which is good for safety. The included remotes are quite small and have nice mashable buttons. The wall remote lights up and it's big and easy to hit as you walk into the garage from your house. Wishes One nice feature from my old opener was that if your garage door is left open the lights on the opener will automatically shut off after a set length of time (5 minutes or so?). This opener has that feature, too. However, my old opener would also turn the lights back on if someone or something "broke the beam" of the obstruction sensors -- the Excelerator II does not do this and I wish it did. But I would not go so far as to say this is a complaint. Overall, I find this product was exactly as it was described on the website: fast, quiet, and easy to install. I heartily recommend this product, especially if you are replacing an opener with a similar footprint.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but not excellent I bought this to replace my 10-12 year old 1st generation Genie Excelerator, that had a failing circuit board. Installation of the new one was pretty straight forward and the instructions were well done. However, my biggest complaint is it's much louder than the old Genie that I had. If it were just as quiet or quieter, it would get 5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We love this opener. It's quieter then the old 1/2hp screw drive it replaced and the opening spee... We love this opener. It's quieter then the old 1/2hp screw drive it replaced and the opening speed is amazing! When you open it it starts upward slowly (soft start) then within maybe 1' (or less?) it really picks up speed. Closing doesn't seem to be quiet as fast (maybe my imagination) but regardless is fast enough and just before it fully closes, it slows (soft stop). Although the programming instructions look somewhat complicated and lengthy, it's basically just three or four steps for up and that many down. Programming the hand held remotes (2) weren't necessary and the wall mounted remote wasn't a problem to program either. That remote I mounted inside our house and it works great through two finished walls, both with foil backed insulation, one bricked, the other covered with black board/plywood/siding to a detached garage with the opener 30' away. Buy this. You'll be very pleased.

I bought this to replace a 15-year-old Genie Excelerator that stopped working. It was easy enough to install by myself. I like the way this newer version lets you set or change the travel limits very easily. It seems the smaller remote controls work from farther away than the old opener's remotes. It opens slowly at first then goes to maximum speed. It takes about a second longer for this opener to open the door than the old version which starts faster. It closes about one second faster than the old version. I would prefer it to not start slowly but this soft start feature, intended to reduce stress on the door, I don't think can be adjusted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replaced Genie Excelerator from 2001 I bought this as replacement for 15 year old Genie Excelerator. I installed it in under five hours by myself but would have been easier with helper. Setting the limits was much easier than previous model. The rail on this model is much sturdier and is quieter. The operating speed is as fast or faster than previous model I had. Very happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It was time to replace a 20 year old Genie ISL-950, so I purchased the Ryobi Garage Door Opener (... It was time to replace a 20 year old Genie ISL-950, so I purchased the Ryobi Garage Door Opener (because it was in stock). After installation, it failed the initial tests. Calls to Ryobi Customer Service quickly determined it was a defective unit, so I uninstalled it and returned i to Home Depot. I ordered the Excelerator (which I should have done in the first place). It was delivered to my home very quickly, installation and setup were easy, and it was compatible with the existing sensor and keypad wiring and existing wireless keypad (unlike the Ryobi). It is very fast and quiet (the bearings on the door track wheels are noisier), with excellent transmitter range. I like the soft start/stop feature.

I hired a professional to install it and he said it was fairly easy to set up and install. It does everything a garage door opener should do. Not impressed with the key less remote pad as it was impossible to get programmed and is currently still not being used. That's ok because all I really need are the car remotes and the main wall remote in the garage. This replaced my 20 year old Kenmore 1/2 HP which sometimes would not work at all. Overall I would recommend this product without the Key less remote pad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Home Upgrade The switch from our old operator to this new Genie was relatively simple. The operator was hung on the same brackets, the length of the rail was the same as the old one. We did run new wires, but it could have been less time consuming if we had used the existing wires. The new system works very well, is very quiet and fast. Total install took the two of us about six hours, but the re-wiring was a huge contributor to this. The installation instructions were easy to follow. The plastic cover for the lights does seem very cheap and flimsy, but I put in LEDs, so should not have to touch the cover for a long time.
