Questions & Answers

Will a riding mower activate the vehicle sensor?

We just purchased the MM FM500 gate opener (not installed yet), and I am looking at accessories for it. My lawn maintenance crew comes 2 to 3 times a month, if they enter the 12' zone with a riding lawn mower, will it activate the gate to open? I have 3 dogs that run loose in the yard, so gate must remain closed unless entering or exiting, and would hate to see it opening and closing with each pass of the mower.
Asked by: HotWaterPlease
Yes. A lawnmower of any size will set it off. But only expect the sensor to work for a few months before needing to be replaced or repaired.

What happens when two or three vehicles follow each other by the sensor?

I am wondering what happens if the first vehicle activates the gate and 10 seconds later another vehicle or two drive by the sensor.
Asked by: BigW
If the unit is working, the gate will stay open for all of the cars as long as they are on or moving. When it works, it is great. Don;t expect it to keep working for more than a few months though.

Can two of these automatic gate sensors be wired to the same fm 350?

Asked by: Mike
And yet, one customer tried this and he said the gate continuously opened and closed. Perhaps he had the gate too close to the sensor when open?

I would like to run a mighty mule m200 on a 5 watt solar panel. Will I need any additional power sources for the sensor?

Asked by: Rob
Hello Rob, Thank you for posting your question.The FM200 light duty gate opener is designed and indented for use with a 12 volt automotive or marine type battery (not included) for powering the gate opener system. Please refer to the solar panel and gate activity chart located in the installation guide on the FM200 product page to see the appropriate amount of solar panel wattage that is required for the area you live in. A minimum of 5 watts is required when operating your FM200 gate opener with a solar panel and additional accessories such as the wired vehicle sensor. Thank you!

The sensor worked well for about 4 months, but has stopped working entirely now. I have tried disassembling the control box and disconnecting the batteries to reset everything (many times). In fact the entire Mighty mule system has been a disaster since installing it. The control box has to be disassembled once or twice a week to re-adjust the gate closure or to re-set the unit so it will start working again. My family and i have been trapped inside our gate more times than we can count. Do yourself a favor and invest in a different brand. Mighty Mule has been a nightmare for us.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money I followed the instructions and am pretty handy and couldn't get it to work properly. When I first installed it would work only during the daytime for some reason and now it doesn't work at all! Don't waste $175 and 2 hours.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from good product The gate opener serves it purpose to keep people out and to control who comes on our property. The gate is very slow to open and slow to close, which sometimes allows our dogs to get out. Wish we could change the timing to get it to close faster. Overall, a great product. We would purchase it again
