In today’s market where brands fight over sales and the ultimate strategy which everyone resorts to is cutting the prices just to attract audience, a crucial degradation in quality is observed due to them cutting the costs of manufacturing the products as well. These cuts in costs also entail lesser quality build, cheaper material, and of course, gimmicky looks to compensate for the lack of efficiency and functionality.
- EASE OF USE
This model focuses chiefly on hardware efficiency and performance so there isn’t much fancy software features that it can actually brag. However, it does exhibit a long range frequency receiver which means that the reach for your remotes are much longer compared to other brands in the market. An automatic halt and reverse motion is also displayed by the gates if ever you are to collide with it.
These safety features are also paired with security features like the Internal Friction Brake Locking Device which ensure that your gates are ultimately locked once it shuts off until you command it to open. It does this by applying pressure towards the gate, making it impossible for thieves to forcibly open the fixture.
This Mighty Mule Gate Opener is equipped with a heavy duty motor which can lift over a thousand pounds of mass for gates that are 30 feet long with a 20 feet opening. It is compatible to all gate materials such as chain link, wood, tubular steel, ornamental, and wrought iron enclosures. It is also capable of solar power electrical source as it has an adapter for at least 10-watts of power, a 24 Amp Hour battery kit, and it also includes a concrete padding kit.
The packaging itself contains what you need in installing it like a battery back-up kit, a radio receiver and transmitter, transformers and the necessary fittings that you would be using. It also provides space for upgrades as it has terminals for safety loops, intercoms, card readers and even phone systems. All of the things therefore that this unit provides are not gimmicky but rather based on pure utility.
What we liked about this product is the absence of those gimmicky features that, at the end of the day. are just for show and bragging. This item means business as it provides all the necessary equipment for a heavy duty gate opener while still leaving space for many upgrades and utilities. This provides an endless possibility of the things that you could equip it.
Mighty Mule, remains firm in their beliefs on producing nothing but the best no matter what the cost may be. And this is the reason why the said company continues to be on the top despite all of their model being in the high end spectrum- both in price and features. This is the case as well with the Mighty Mule Gate Opener MM-SL2000B, wherein while it might not come cheap yet what it offers is the outstanding quality that no product can ever surpass right now or in the near future.
