Rated 1 out of 5 by from Keeps blowing fuses. I purchased the gate opener a few weeks ago. Installed it according to the instructions. And it hasn’t worked once without blowing the fuse inside of it. I’ve asked about every fence company to come and take a look at it. And everyone of them, refuse to help us. They state that this gate opener is junk, and they never work, and if they do. Expect to replace it over and over again. I wouldn’t recommend this even to open a doggie door. (There’s a reason why it’s about half the price of the good ones) We’re hoping Tractor Supply will give us our money back!

Does the solar chargers go into a floating mode (drops down to zero volts and amps) when battery is charged or does it continuously trickle charge at some rate? Is it suitable for use with a gel or AGM battery?

Asked by: GPop
Hi, the solar panel provides a constant trickle charge to the battery that is regulated by the gate opener's control board. Depending on which gate opener you have, depends on which type of battery we recommend. If you have a MM260, MM360, MM362 or MM660 we recommend a 12 Volt Automotive or Marine Type Battery that produces a minimum of 250 cold cranking amps (CCA). If you have a MM560 or MM562 we recommend our Mighty Mule 12 Volt 7 amp/hr Battery (Model # FM150).

will any 12v automotive battery w/minimum 250 cold cranking AMP work w/this panel and is there enough room in the control box for any 12v battery OR is there a special battery?

Asked by: Brad 1973
Brad 1973, Thank you for posting your question. To correctly answer your question we need to know which Mighty Mule Gate Opener model you are adding this solar panel to. If you are adding the solar panel to one of the following gate openers any 12v automotive battery with a minimum of 250 CCA will work (model # MM260,MM360, MM362, or MM660). If you are adding a solar panel to one of the following gate openers models you would use our part # FM150 12v, 7amp hour battery (model # MM560,MM562, MMDIA30S or MMDIA30D). Thank you,

Does this solar panel charge the battery directly or does it have to 'go through the Mighty Mule Gate opener'?

Asked by: Desertdog
Hi, the solar panel charges the battery through the control board to control amount of charge the battery receives. The batteries in our gate openers are trickle charged by either solar panel or AC transformer and the control board makes sure the batteries are not over charged.

How long does the battery last before needing to be replaced

Asked by: Erb1711
Hi Erb, the battery is continually trickle charged by the solar panel. Depending on the model of gate opener you purchase it will either include a battery or require a battery. Models: MM560 & MM562 include a 12-volt 7 amp hour battery (Model # FM150) that is rated for a 3 - 5 year life expectancy. Gate opener models MM260, MM360, MM362, MM660 all require a battery, we recommend a 12 Volt Automotive or Marine Type Battery that produces a minimum of 250 cold cranking amps (CCA). Depending on which battery you decide to purchase will depend on life expectancy, please refer to the manufacturer of the battery your purchase for more information.
