Created with the maximum starting torque in mind, the ALEKO® AR2700 Gate Opener kicks off other gate opener models through its 120V AC motor that translates into 2.0 HP total power. This monster dominates all others through its raw strength as displayed by its specs. Be the judge as we lay down to you what’s good and not about this product.
- EASE OF USE
The first feature of the ALEKO AR2700 Gate Opener is its smart technology which auto-reverses the gate movement if its sensors feel that someone will be hit or is currently in contact with the gates. This opener coupled with its portable remote which is sold separately would enable its users to access the gate’s movement even from a distance.
This unit also comes with the soft start and stop feature which will smartly accelerate and decelerate your entrance relative to the gate’s distance to the port magnet. It can also support up to 100 remotes for easy access of multiple users in an industrial scale.
This ALEKO AR2700 Gate Opener can apparently handle up to 2700 pounds of mass and gates that are up to 50 feet long. This means that it is well suited for industrial use, large home-owner units and even gated villas. It does come with a 20 feet chain and 2 remotes as a basic startup for its users who want to test the waters.
It is also equipped with a high base for easier installation as well as a powerful 2.0 HP AC motor. Its chassis’ main build is made up of aluminum alloy making the main motor corrosion resistant. It does also come with a chain mounting hardware and other bolts which you need to have for easier installment.
The sheer strength of the motor that drives the ALEKO AR2700 is its greatest pitching point. The fact that it can drive even the heaviest gates makes it compatible to almost every user. It is even widely used in many gated villas and communities, hence word about its strength have apparently spread quickly over the years.
Its smart security and wireless features has also put it in the front line in the market of gate openers. Its ability to accommodate large gates also makes it very nuanced for industrial and luxurious home ownership use. The idea to use magnets in order to securely guide the fixture was also a neat mechanical engineering feat for the manufacturer.
What we advise to you however is that you have to watch supplementary DIY videos in installing it so as to save you time. Large equipment like these do not come easy to set-up. However, if done correctly the ALEKO® can be a reliable gate opener around your block.
What the manufacturer needs to improve however, is their instruction manual. Many report that it is a bit vague and too technical to be understood by a person who is not used to Do-It-Yourself projects. We recommend then that you read its instructions well first and even watch videos over YouTube to make yourself familiar with its installation process.
Overall, the AR2700 is literally a powerhouse in terms of raw power. This is complimented well with its software control through the soft start and stop, making the whole operation smooth. What we advise to you however is that you have to watch supplementary DIY videos in installing it so as to save you time.
