Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by moh4747 MIGHTY MULE DUEL GATE OPENER
Everything from ordering to delivery turned out to be excellent and installation wasn't that complicate either. It opens and closes smoothly but with some noise a bit louder than expected.
But my main concern is, how long it will last? Many previous owners complained about malfunctioning of operating arms or control board after 1 month thru 2 years usage. Only time can tell.
My previous model was FAAC brand which worked fine for 5 years then developed a serious problem with the receiver unit, caused several parts replacement at $150 but finally ended up in trash can.
I hope this new opener proves all the negative reviews incorrect.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tgDIYer Great replacement for older Mule
I still had all of my old mounts which easily adapted to the newer opener. My biggest challenge was getting the cable through the old conduit for my double gates. As for the product, the installation minus the conduit was easy to install and I am not an electrician or a trained installer. This said, due to running the wire, the install did take me about 10 hours. Also, one word of advice, read the directions then read them again carefully. I made one dumb two hour mistake that was simply not reading the directions.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Idaho Issues but value balanced
The dual gate set up opens and closes fine, but the remote openers (bought separately) are junk. One came with the unit, 5 others I ordered (total of 6) trying to find 3 that work. One remote kills batteries in a few days, some of the others simply will not work. The ones that do work have a short range (about 75', and 3 of them I ordered are "extended range pro" which is bull) If anyone knows better remote openers from some other company, I'd like to know about them. I installed an entry key pad and the automatic gate lock, both work great.
I also picked up buried vehicle sensor to auto open the gate to let guests out, but what they do not tell you is if you have any electrical cables near the sensor, it will not work. When you call to complain, they tell you they know it is an issue but its not written into any literature so they sent a small potentiometer to put in the wiring, which so far has made the auto open sensor work as advertised but using a smaller sensing area. (cars have to be closer to it to open the gate)
If you have expectations of flawless use, find a higher end product. If you want something that gets you buy with some security, this does work.

For all you DIYers out there, make sure you have the gate frame made in steal or iron. A wooden framed gate will not work. You can dress the metal frame up with wooden pickets to match your fence though...

Best gate opener for the money, I installed it myself as usual and it went very easy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Owlranch Replaced Mighty Mule openers destroyed by crazy ants.
Since we were replacing Mighty Mules that were virtually destroyed by crazy ants, our mountings were already in place so this was very easy.
The board had been changed so I had to relearn how to program it but it went quickly. We were even able to reprogram our older (and some much older) controllers so we have spares now.
LOVE my Mighty Mules!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by buckwheat WORKS GREAT
Replaced an older model that stopped working, so it was easy to install. However the cable for the second gate opener was about five feet short and had to splice the cable, which is not recommended, was just long enough to reach the end of the conduit but not long enough to reach the control module.I installed a watertight box just above the ground to protect the splice from moisture. The receiver for the remote control has less range than the old model. other than that it works satisfactorily.
