Reviews of 3 best electric gate opener




1. ALEKO AC1400 Electric Sliding Gate Opener for Sliding Gates


Designed for sliding gates, AC1400 Electric Gate Opener (for example: MIGHTY MULE MM360 )
 is made up of the aluminum alloy chassis. This chain-drive gate opener supports 50ft long sliding gates that may weigh up to 1400 pounds. This is all because of the heavy-duty motor and the 20ft long chain.

It comes with the 120V AC 1.5 HP equivalent motor and hence, it is an AC-powered addition to the ALEKO family of electric gate opening products. It is fully capable of stopping and reversing in case it encounters any obstruction. For me, it is an ideal gate opener that offers exceptional starting torque and incessant operation.


It is light in weight to be carried and installed by one person alone. Moreover, its body is corrosion resistant making it the long-lasting product. With the plenty of extra chain, high base and two sensors, it also supports up to hundred remotes.

​With two years of warranty, it’s a great deal for the money. If you want a good hardware in low budget, this electric sliding gate opener is definitely for you.


2. US Automatic Sentry 300 S Commercial Grade Automatic Gate Opener


This automatic gate opener weighing 32.9 lbsis essentially designed for operating 20 feet long swing gates. The best thing about this gate opener is that it comes with no complicated wiring and hence, making it easy to install and use. You can quickly install it in just less than one hour.

I simply love this gate opener because it provides weeks of operation without sunbecause it’s truly a solar charged gate opener. The Sentry 300 series introduced by US Automatic is the first high quality ‘Do it Yourself’ gate opener. It includes12 vdc battery that is charged from inbuilt AC transformer.


Optional solar panel kit helps in remote installations and the linear actuator gives 400 pounds of thrust along with the compression rating of 1000 pounds. Its chain can link up to 14ft in length and you can use it for ornamental iron gates with length if about 12ft.16 seconds of opening and closing time does not vary with the gate weight, making this gate opener an excellent choice for my farm’s single swing gate.


3. US Automatic Sentry 300D Commercial Grade Automatic Gate Opener


This commercial grade automatic gate opener is intended for use on swinging gates. With all the mounting hardware, this gate opener come with50ft cable and a perfect choice for dual gates up to 20ft in length.Sentry 300D is designed to be used with Sentry 300S and hence, your first gate should have Sentry 300S installed in.

You can easily install this unit on your12ft long ornamental iron gates. You can also use it with your wood panel gates without any fear.

It is more like the secondary arm for your dual gate and weighs only 25.8 pounds. Water tight junction box, controlling kit and wire nuts for connections are included in the complete package. This gate automatic gate opener is one of the best options for the price tag it holds.
