Answer: 
Motor HP is judged by size and weight of door. single car door= 1/2 HP, double car door= 3/4 HP. To me, chain is strong but noisy, screw is real strong and quiet, belt is quiet. Remember, door should be counterbalanced by spring(s). For what it's worth, I would use 3/4 HP screw for this door

Chain drive is probably the most robust, belt drive is the quietest, and the screw drive seems to have all the shortcomings of both. I will never buy a screw drive again. As to power, a properly adjusted garage door should require very little effort to open.

Installation instruction were easy to follow. The only difficulty I encountered, was programming the remote unit, as no instruction were included with the unit. It was necessary for me to do an internet search for similar problems from this manufacture. I was able to program remote unit using recommended procedures. As a consumer these instruction should have been added with unit. Since this is an instructional problem related to manufacturing, I fault the Manufacturer for not including necessary instructions and will research other brand names to replace my 2nd. door.

Answer: 
Weight is the factor to determine the motor HP. A door that wide and age, a 3/4 HP is needed. A 1/2 HP could do the job, but the life of the motor would be shortened. As far as the lift system, that choice is made by one, noise. Belt drives are the quietest, and I can attest to that. Chain drives are the noisiest. Screw type... I have no experience with these.

There are very good instructions to walk anyone through installation. It is considered advance DIY work and they should have another person available to help.
Also, it would be very good if they had a 8-10 ft step ladder to hold up the assembly while installing.

I found today that Genie has a backup battery (Model # 37228R) that shows to work with many of their 140 volt DC openers. My question is, will this battery work with this opener (model# 2042-TK)? If not is there a battery that will work with it? Or would I have to open it up & wire in a tap to hook up the Genie battery? (I do realize that the last question would/idea void any warranty on the unit.)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Choice Well pleased with unit; was easy to install, no missing parts, good instructions and works great...much quieter than my old chain drive unit. September 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Good Quality Product Never installed a garage door opener before. The assembly directions were clear and very easy to follow. The door opener is extremely quiet compared to the chain drives and the adjustments dials on the back of the opener are easy to read and control the door with precision. The extra garage light with shut off timer button is also a nice feature. No need to open the door just to turn on the light! August 1, 2016

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This Genie is Fantastic !!! This opener is so easy to install,I replaced my old screw drive by myself in about 4 hours. Its also extremely quiet. April 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works Really Well This garage door opener works really well. It's a lot quieter than others that I've seen and it also moves pretty fast. I got mine installed by Home Depot and the technician did an excellent job. It's a really good price for what you get. I love that it comes with two remotes and a wall unit for outside the garage. Now I can go bike riding without having to bring my house key with me! Oh, and there's also a way to operate the garage door opener in case the power goes out. Cool. January 20, 2016
