Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mighty Mule Review I was so excited to have finally been able to make this purchase, but have not been 100% pleased with it as I thought I would. I'm not trying to give a complete bad review whatsoever, but we have ha a few issues with it so far. Now, take in mind that we did not hire a professional to install the gate opener for us, so therefore, maybe it's my husbands fault being it's his first time installing knows??? Anyway, it's just really slow at opening, which maybe it's suppose to be super slow opening...IDK, we've also had trouble trying to get the gate to open all the way without having fear of scratching our vehicles, and then we had issues the other night where it did not want to open at all. Anyway, my husband finally made it were the gate will open farther now, and so far we've only had two issues were the gate would not open for us. Hopefully, all is good now, and if so great! It's a keeper, but if not, there may be consideration of a return. Definitely crossing my fingers that'll work to our benefit, because I sure hate getting sand all in my shoes and car we have a really sandy driveway.

Can your guests physically open the gate without a button? How does that work?

Asked by: Adrianna
Hi Adrianna, the only way to open the gate is either using a remote, keypad or push button control. You can also install a vehicle sensor but that will open when a large metal object drives through the sensor's path.

I have 2 questions. 1 does the transformer operate the opener without having a battery? I am looking at using this within 20 ft of a 110 power source and could bury the 12 volt wire.  2 how fast does a 12 ft gate open/ close?gpritch

Asked by: gpritch
gpritch, Thank you for posting your questions. The transformer is to be used in non solar panel applications, it will continually charge the gate openers battery (not included in this kit). A battery is required for operation, we recommend a 12V Automotive or Marine Type Battery that produces a minimum of 250 cold cranking amps (CCA). The approximate gate opening/closing time (90º) is 18 seconds. Thank you!

Would I be able to use the remote to open the gate from the house, which is about 300 ft. from the gate, such as when visitors are at the gate and I'm in the house or work shed?

Asked by: Gatekeeper too
Hi, our remotes are only rated for 100 ft. line of site. But some applications in rural areas without interference there is a possibility you could be farther from 100 ft. and be able to open the gate. If your remote does not work, we offer the Mighty Mule Push Button Control (Model # FM132) that is wired directly into the control board and can be wired up to 1000 ft. away from the gate.

Installed the opener with no problems but the gate opens on it's own for no apparent reason!!! Any suggestions for adjustments? We are not located on a major road but there are large trucks that do pass through once in a while.

Can you buy an extra remote, so my husband and I can both have a way to open the gate?

Asked by: Hawk211
Yes, you can add additional remotes for any of our operators. The part number for the remote is an FM135.

How is the battery charged if you do not use solar panel?

Asked by: Theresa Robinson
Hi, all of our Mighty Mule Gate Openers include a transformer (Model # RB570) that is used to plug into an outlet and charge the battery. If you do use the included transformer, we do not include the wire needed to wire the transformer to the control board. We recommend using 16 gauge, multi-stranded, dual conductor, low voltage wire that is UV treated & PVC coated that can be used for the transformer and our accessories. We offer this wire in three sizes: 100 ft. (Model # RB509-100), 250 ft. (Model # RB509-250), 500 ft. (Model # RB509-500) or 1000 ft. (Model # RB509).
