Has anyone here installed a gate opener/closer system? This is a wrought iron driveway gate(2 wings opens in the middle)This is for a good customer,and with the other things he wants done it could mean 3 or 4 wks. work or I wouldn't even think about it.Any advice pro or con is welcomed. Russell

We have done a couple of installations of this in commercial application.

Be sure to differentiate between the two gate motors, one gate is the "Master", the other is the 'Slave', then simply follow the wiring diagrams and its quite straight forward.
