Save yourself trouble and buy a better system

Pros: the box it came is looked pretty
Cons: the remotes work occasionally, the keypad may or may not work., the battery held a charge out of the box.
Model Number: 500
"I had the system professionally installed along with my gate. I had it wired from the house to the box so I didn't have to worry about battery failure. The battery that came with the system wouldn't hold a charge right out of the box. I bought a replacement battery locally.
The remotes are fickle. At times they work from some distance (50+ ft). Other times, especially during cold weather, you have to open your car window and be within 5 ft of the antennae to get it to work. It's not a problem with a low battery in the remote. I've checked that several times.
The stationary keypad has worked a few times. We have no idea why it decides to work and why it doesn't. I moved the antennae because I thought there was an obstruction. It didn't help.
The installer did say, "These things are either good or bad. I hope ou got a good one." That should have been when I boxed it up and headed back to Costco with it."

Great opener with smooth operation

Pros: quality and ease of use
Cons: documenation could be clearer
Model Number: Mighty Mule 500
"The opener and the quality of all of the components are great. The opener transmitter that comes with this package works from a very far vistance. Opener has some really good options such as 25 different codes to operate and smooth or fast operation. Operated many times before even applying a charger to the battery with no issues. Purchased the exit wand sperately and it is a very nice addition."

Bad purchase and poor service

Cons: poor customer service
Model Number: MM500
"Before I bought this I found some not so favorable reviews on the internet. Some were positive. I decided since I would like a automatic gate opener I would buy one anyway. I installed this opener along with the optional solar panel and electronic lock. It did not lock properly. I called the service department. The technician on the phone stated that the control board was not operating the electronic lock properly. After another call they suggested that I send in the board and lock at my expense. Only after two more phone calls did I get a prepaid shipping label. About 4 weeks and a phone call later I got both the lock and circuit board back. I went to install them. The cord to the lock had a three foot section cut off and was placed in the box. This made the cord to the electronic lock to short. I just got off the phone with them about this. Their initial reaction was I could splice the wire with some wire nuts and if needed, they would send me a piece of electrical cord. Only after an extended conversation did the technician offer to send me another electronic lock which had been used as a demo. After I got it reinstalled, the circuit board operated exactly as it did when I sent it in. Obviously, the technician did not know how it was suppose to operate. I would return the whole unit if I had bought it all from Costco but the electronic lock and solar charger were bought separately and are not returnable after 30 days and also have a hefty restocking fee. Overall, I would never recommend this product to anyone."

Good gate opener, good price

"This gate opener was priced right and easy to install. Found it helpful to watch the DVD and read the whole book before starting, and definitely easier with a couple of people helping. Took about 2 hours from start to finish, including making the adjustments after installation... already had the electricity done, though. Follow the instructions exactly, and you can't go wrong!"

Very Good Buy

Pros: battery powered so it works when the power is out, reasonable quiet and quick, lots of accessories available, great tech support
Cons: great price compaired to others
Model Number: MM500
"The gate opener is really handy. A little complicated to install, but when you break it down into mechanical, electrical and configuration it isn't so bad. We have had ours for three years with no trouble. The limit switch in the motor arm just failed, but that is most likely due to some knuckle headed guys who installed a sprinkler system who forced their way through the small gap instead of using the man gate. I mention this because it made us aware of how great the gizmo really is! (The support folks at GTO are great, as is their web site support.) If you need an opener, this is a good value and most do-it-yourselfers should be able to do it without too much trouble, just take your time and read the instructions a few times before you start digging or drilling."
