We had a manual sliding gate and installing this Mighty Mule has made my life so much easier!! It was fairly simple to install but is pretty sensitive to any drag on the gate. We have a 16.5' gate and had to reinforce the gate post so it would hold the gate up without sagging. (Could be the fault of the fence installer!) We have installed the solar panel as well and so far the charge is perfectly adequate for our needs. Closing time needs to be quicker and we are having bit of difficulty with that....dogs will get out if gate is open too long. Overall I LOVE this thing!
Pros: Easy to Install

I purchased this for my Mother's home as a replacement. My brothers were able to install it and the only glitch they had at all was setting the opener to stop at the correct position. Took a Saturday morning but then that is not their line of work so all is well.

This product is perfect for those of us with animals. The automatic gate opener gives us more security and we don't have to get out of the vehicle to open and close the gate. We recently closed in our front yard with a fence and gate on the front side. We already had the other 3 sides closed in with fence for our horses. Now our dogs can roam in our yard and we don't have to worry about them getting into the road. This product is the perfect solution!!!
