TAZ, We at Mighty Mule are sorry for any inconvenience regarding the MM271 opener. Please note this is our older unit, and we have lots of new improvements including 40% faster than ever before. However, high winds can be a problem for all gate openers regardless of the manufacture. A couple of ideas would be to adjust the tension control and a gate lock maybe beneficial so the gate stays secure when not in use. This way the high winds may help the gate from moving. We hope you find this helpful. Thank you

Works great and easy to assemble. Hoping the ends where the pin inserts holds up, they are heavy duty plastic but also have alot of tension on them. Otherwise works great and all the remotes work great too. With a long sight of distance range

I’ve had this gate system for 5 years, the gate actuators are antiquated. I was forced to buy a complete gate system to obtain the gate actuator I needed for my dual gate system. It was cheaper to buy this 260 system than buy a single actuator. The control unit is a “5” star runs great....
