Manufacturer Part Number MM560
Mighty Mule Automatic Gate Opener for Heavy-duty Single Swing Gates for 18 ft. Long or 850 Pounds (MM560) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from good so far I read a lot of features and reviews on the Mighty Mule products and decided on the 560 for the concealed battery option. The gate has been working fine for 4 months, although I am now having problems with the battery and/or solar panel. There are a lot of parts and components to this system, so until I figure out the problem, I give the gate operator 4 stars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Replaced older MM500 This unit replaced a poorly installed MM500 from about 2006. The new control board is orange? in color. The led status lights were helpful. The install of the new control arm took minimal effort as the original mounting brackets were used. This is a solar powered location so I set 2 new batteries in the control box. I have about 15 watts available to charge the batteries, which is fine for summer months, but will need to upgrade to at least 30 watt panels before winter. I may not get enough charging hours for the winter months. I liked all the new mounting hardware. The 3/8" nylon bushings at the pivot points on the control arm will probably need to be replaced annually as they will have normal wear and become brittle over time. I used two security pin locks (FM133) for the arm, and I used additional 3/8" flat washers to take up the extra gap spaces in the pin mounting hardware so that the gate arm was tighter with less chance of chattering which causes extra wear to the pin mounting holes. This location was challenging as the gate is mounted on a thick limestone wall with mortar. The operational limits were limited due to the opening angle of the gate.

Do these gates close automatically after a vehicle passes or do you need to press a button to get it to close?

Asked by: currangate 2017
Hi, our gate openers include a feature called Auto-Close that you can set to close your gate automatically after being opened up to 120 seconds after initial opening.

Presently I am operating a 16ft single aluminum gate with a 500 Mighty Mule. Operation is good except when it is windy. Question: do you offer a unit that wil produce more force and is compatible with my existing controller?

Asked by: Tailspin
Hello Tailspin, Thank you for taking the time to post your question. Unfortunately we do not offer a different unit that produces more opening/closing force. I would consider adding a Mighty Mule Automatic Gate Lock (model # FM143). The Automatic Gate lock, Unlocks and locks automatically as the gate is activated to open and close to provide added security for Mighty Mule automatic gate openers. Recommended for gate leafs over 8 ft. long, high wind areas or additional reinforcement against unwanted intrusion to your property. Thank you!

What is the difference between the MM560 and MM660, other than including the battery? The MM560 had an 18 month warranty and MM660 had 24 month warranty. Not sure which one to go with.

Asked by: 7195
Hi, the main difference between the MM560 and MM660 is that the MM560 includes a battery box and a compact 12-Volt, 7 amp-hour battery (Model # FM150). The MM660 requires a 12 Volt Automotive or Marine Type Battery that produces a minimum of 250 cold cranking amps (CCA) that is recommended to be placed in a battery box that needs to be purchased additionally. Also, the MM660 includes an extra remote (2 total) whereas the MM560 only includes 1. In addition, the MM660 has an additional 6 month warranty.

Can the MM560 be mounted on either left or right side of gate to accommodate left/right side mounted hinges? Also can swing be controlled? (Eg: Outward or Inward)

Asked by: DIYDave
Hi Dave, yes you can install the MM560 with the post located on either side of your driveway. In addition, you can have the gate opener open outward, away from your property (Push-To-Open) or open into your property (Pull-To-Open) which is the factory setting for our gate openers. If you decide to have your gate opener Push-To-Open, you will need to purchase the Mighty Mule Push-To-Open Bracket (Model #FM148). Note: Dual applications require 2 brackets.

Can you add a solar panel to this gate instead of having it run off of hard wired electricty?

Asked by: MM305
Hi, yes all of our gate openers can either operate off the included transformer (Model # RB570) or can be setup with a Mighty Mule Solar Panel (Model # FM123). Up to 3 10-Watt solar panels can be added to your installation, we recommend reviewing our Solar Panel Application Chart to see how many watts of solar panel charge we recommend depending on your geographic location.
