Answer: 
You have to buy the 110 volt power supply as it does not come with the kit (it is optional). The control board has euro block style connectors to terminate the low voltage wiring.

Answer: 
It comes with the transformer, but no wire. I think they don't supply it because they don't know how far you have to run the wire. I order 100' roll of wire. It came in handy, because I also order the remote pole and pad, I had enough to run both and some left over. Good Valve for Around $35.00 Dollars. Hope this helps.

Answer: 
Not an explicit lock...but when the gate is open or shut you really can't move it much. The gate position is anchored by a worm drive that's pretty strong.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 80 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mighty Mule 500 single gate opener The gate opener was very easy to install and set up. It works well with our 16 foot gate. August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great gate opener The gate opener was easy to install with no special tools. It's a little slower than my old gate opener, but at a small fraction of the price. June 28, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Best unit so far This is second Mighty Mule I've had. First was a MM350- had problems for about 14 months then it finally quit MM500 is a lot easier to install and wire and a better design June 24, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by The MIghty Mule Openers Fail Frequently We have had the heavy and medium duty gates replaced three going on four times. They last a few months or a year then they stop randomly stop functioning. Their support department is overwhelmed. Expect to call 6 plus times to get a person. They are not reliable. June 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Opener for single gate. Good instructions, easy to install and program. Can add solar for remote areas. May 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mighty Mule 500 gate opener The Mighty Mule 500 gate opener seems very heavy duty and installed easily on a 16' tubular steel gate, with excellent instructions. Just installed so the above scores are "so far", and are partially due to my comparison with another brand we had that had many problems from day one and lasted about 2 years with several periods of down time [bad circuit boards]. The Mighty Mule operated flawlessly the first operation. The unit's operation is quite a bit noisier then the old one but it has an 18 month warranty so not to worry. February 23, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Replacement gate opener Original gate opener was caught by the heavy winds and the opening rod bent and rendered the opener useless. Hopefully, the new arm will not suffer the same fate. Package arrived promptly and well packaged. Arm installed easily and is working well at the moment. March 29, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A Valuable Gate Opener A great opener. Easy to install and set up. The cheapest opener I found. April 2, 2016
