Answer: 
No, it is too light and has issues with my 12 foot gate. Get the fm 350. After my issues with the fm200, I read many reviews and none have had the issues I am having after changing to a fm 350.

Designed for gates up to 12 ft (3.7m) long or 300 lbs (136.1kg)....I would imagine that it could do it, but your probably going to be pushing the limits of the unit. I imagine the geometry stays the same, they just put a 12 foot limit on it to keep folks from overloading them.

Can I buy two of these for dual swing gates?

The dual swing models all seem to require digging a trench and laying cable underground. Wondering if I can avoid that by using a different opener for each gate, but programming just one remote to open them both at the same time.

Answer: 
Thanks for the answer, but the most important part of my question was ignored. ONE opener for both gates?? As mentioned, trenching is out of the question, and none of these seem to be able to communicate wirelessly with each other. this seems odd since the remotes are wireless. But, the point of the question really was whether a single remote will work for both gates.

Answer: 
Hello gt, This is possible, but please keep in mind that the gate openers would still work as independent systems and may not open and close exactly at the same time.You would also need to purchase two 12-Volt automotive or marine type battery, one for each FM200. Proper installation for a dual gate setup would be using our dual gate openers (models FM402,FM502). Thank you,

Answer: 
You'll have to buy some wire for the battery, but it's pretty cheap. You can buy the remotes on ebay, home depot, or several other retailers. They are easy to setup as they use mini switches which you set to the same setting as your opener.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 28 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mighty Mule Gate Opener this is my 3rd gate opener. Easy to install and works great August 14, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by junk this was junk and had to return the product, i would not buy again February 24, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Love the purchase! works great; excellent value and pretty easily installed. September 9, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Horrible Software Spend the money on a better model. I installed this opener on a 10ft light chain link gate. The opener handles the gate no problem and was easy to install. However, that is all I can say good about this gate. Setting the gate closing position was nearly impossible. It constantly wanted to over close, even to the extent that it scarred the casing after opening the gate nearly 150 degrees. Solved that problem with a gate stop on the gate. Even after fixing that issue, I have had to reprogram the gate opening position three times. The gate has attempted to close even more several times instead of opening. It has been constant frustration for several weeks now! November 5, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good gate opener I got about eight years of trouble free use from this opener before the threads in the shaft gave out. They are made of plastic and will eventually wear out, but otherwise it's a great product and for today's tools and appliances, eight years isn't a bad run. Do yourself a favor, utilize the larger amperage batteries, gate will open faster and smoother with fewer overall issues. Installation may require the utilization of some washers as shims, but otherwise it's pretty simple and straightforward. Programming the gate is easy, and adding additional remotes even easier as they use the DIP switch setup. May 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stay dry We have been looking at automatic gate openers for about 2 years. I finally purchased one so my wife or daughter would not have to get wet or cold when they left the house. The opener is a little slow but we absolutely love it. Keep your family happy and order one today. February 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great features and fast shipping. Opener works great. Very fast shipping. Fairly easy setup. Love it! January 18, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Needs a redesign Suffers from design deficiencies. The closing time and obstruction sensitivities are set by best guess, and it took several attempts to set these items to my needs. Further, the motor is very slow and our 12 foot gate takes about 15 seconds to fully open. I've learned to open the gate before I even start the car but the slowness is annoying. Also, there's no release to allow the gate opening when I simply want to walk out my driveway. That act requires using our spare transmitter and partially opening the gate just to retrieve the mail. The price seems fair but given the design problems it's certainly worth no more than that. June 26, 2014
