Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tex Worked just fine!
Had my old gate opener die. Got 2 estimates for a new install. First was $1250; second was $2600. Bought this package instead. Less than $600. Install was a piece of cake. No complaints. Works just fine.

I have purchased and installed 4 Mighty Mule gate openers over the last 20 years as we moved to different homes. I have also installed several for friends. I have found the dual (750) and single (500) to work well over the years with minimal issues. Technical support is also excellent if ever needed. I just installed the FM500 on a single custom gate and the install went flawlessly and the gate opener worked well right from the start. Why spend thousands on a gate opener when $500 gets you everything you need.

The product was fairly simple to install as I was replacing a 11 yr old existing opener from the same manufacturer. It took me 21/2 hrs to do as there was already existing 120v power near by for the transformer. Getting the power set up would be the hardest part depending on the situation. Too early to tell how it will do as it is on a customer gate,but the last one lasted a while under medium amount of use. It is made in Chiner but isn't everything.

Opener arrived on schedule and in great condition. Directions were not in the package, but are available on-line with a very good video on how to install. I did find out after reading the directions that I needed to have a "push to open" bracket which delayed the installation. I had difficulties in the proper placement of the opener to the gate - took three attempts before the gate closed completely. The electrical hookups are easy to follow took less than one hour. After setting the remote dip switches, all remotes would activate the opener from about 40'. The wireless 10 key pad does not consistently operate the opener unless its within 30' so I plan to hard wire, more work than planned. Still, I'm satisfied with the purchase.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by gio436 so so after I got it tweeked
Iron Gate about 10 foot long.
The motor on this is slow and not to strong . Had a wheel on the bottom of gate and motor would stop at every bump. Had to cut and move brakes on gate higher and remove wheel. Tweeting the angle of the brakes was a little challenging. Battery dose run out quick. Gate still opens too far and was not able to fix that. Finally got it to close all the way to post.
Over all it works for now. One note the brakes that holds motor to the gate not the one that holds the motor to post. That brake did bend and is way to this.
If all variables are good then I would recommend product. If not don't bother.
