Prior to your order we consult with you directly to determine your exact observatory requirements and establish your custom cable lengths. This allows us to pre- wire the entire system and fully test it before shipment. Call 510-495- 7932 for consulting & ordering details.

If you already have one of our Gate Motor Models listed, it must be sent to our facility for installation of the new relay board and the smaller drive gear. Contact us for details and pricing.

*Gate opener drive gear can be replaced with a #40 chain sprocket if needed

*Price includes free shipping in the Continental U.S.

MOTOR NOTE: All of our gate openers have their electronic control boards removed.  

This is due to some unresolved issues, usually during electrical storm activity, the gate opener control board logic has caused “Phantom Roof Openings”.  

We now install our own solid state relay board for direct reliable motor control.
