This review is from: Mighty Mule RB709U-NB Garage Door Receiver (Tools & Home Improvement) Unfortunately this brand of gate opener is low quality.

    Seems to be alright.

    This is the cheap low end model, doesn't get much worse then this for gate openers... and it works fine! This model is good for the light weight ranch tube gates. Make certain your gate is in perfect shape, do NOT buy any opener unless you have a well installed functioning gate.I gave four stars because I couldn't program the "Stop Limit" function (this is how the gate knows to stop when it's perfectly closed). Customer Service told me that this is a common problem and you need to make sure you have a good distance between the control box and power arm. I stretched it out as much as I could, and it still didn't work. So I re-mounted the hardware to close perfectly with the factory settings (since I couldn't change them) and it worked great. Maybe try this the first time if you buy one in case you have the same problem as me (they say it's common).With that said, it's been four months of absolutely perfect operating and this includes the keypad entry and... 4/5 Justin Rainey "Buck Rainey" (Nevada City, California) - See all my reviews, July 2, 2009

    Follow up Review - Needs Improvement and Customer Service of GTO is terrible!

    This is our second opener from GTO. The first (model FM350) we purchased 8 years ago. It did not work out of the box and after a week of constantly calling GTO, without reaching anything but an answering machine on their non-toll free tech line, I finally managed to speak with somebody and get a replacement unit sent out. This unit worked well with little trouble until last year. I looked for a replacement and found this model at a much lower price than the FM350. I was surprised to find that it was not a direct replacement for the FM350 and its installation was entirely different from the FM350. It also seemed to be the FM350's very tiny cousin.It worked for 60 days and gave up the ghost. Based on my previous problems reaching GTO on the telephone 8 years ago, I was hoping things had changed. I called the toll free number on the opener and, as 8 years ago, was told to call a non-toll free number for tech support. Once again a call was made and a message left.

This review is from: ML4-6 - 6 VOLT 4.5 AH SLA BATTERY KIT WITH 6V SOLAR PANEL CHARGER (Electronics) I have 2 trail camera which 1 uses 8 AA batteries, the other uses 4 C batteries, the batteries in the summer last about 5 weeks, in cold weather maybe 2 weeks, got tired of keep buying batteries, or when i got back up north found out that the batteries went dead and missed a whole lot of pictures so i purchased a 6 volt system (battery and solar cell), and a 12 volt system, what each trail camera required and no longer have to change batteries, they are always up with a charge.I would advise to buy online (Amazon), when i reviewed at the sporting goods store, the cost for 1 battery and solar cell is $40 to $50.00 and up, and they are much smaller solar cell in the store than what i purchased online. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 14, 2014

    USAutomatic, LTD

    Solid, Well built American product.

    We have had the USAutomtic 020345 Medium 300 Solar Charged Automatic Gate Opener Double Gate Deluxe Kit installed about since June 2012 and it is working perfectly. The components are well made and the company and support is from Texas - I think the owners actually man the phones. They support the product well. The control is not always intuitive. The two-button remote is a little confusing. One button opens and closes the gate and if the button is not pressed to close, the controller is set to automatically close after 5 minutes (adjustable). The second button will lock the gate open (or closed, I think). The non-intuitive part is that you have to press the second button again to unlock it. We would have preferred just pressing the open/close button, but that's not how it works. Installation was easy and the instructions are easy to understand. Overall, I am very pleased with the opener and believe it will last. The solar panel has been able to keep the battery charged and we open... 4/5 L.

    Overall, unsure at this point....

    Let me say that I researched this for a long time. We wanted a driveway gate so that our kids wouldn't go out and also would keep the idiots coming on our driveway to make U-turns.Mighty Mule has horable reviews and others are the same. After a long research I heard about the US automatic (Sentry) from amazon, one of the reviewers. I ended up buying the sentry deluxe kit since I needed all for a dual swing gate configuration. A week after started using it, one of the linear actuators went bad, it refused to close all the way in, meaning the piston wouldn't go all the way in back the cylinder. I called tech support and was advised to start the RMA for the actuator. Their tech support is great no doubt and I got the replacement in 3 days, although the stuff I got does NOT look new. The overall system looks to be well built and good quality, however one of the brackets did have some missing holes, which I had to drill, not a pleasant experience.
