Mighty Mule FM200 is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Needs a redesign Suffers from design deficiencies. The closing time and obstruction sensitivities are set by best guess, and it took several attempts to set these items to my needs. Further, the motor is very slow and our 12 foot gate takes about 15 seconds to fully open. I've learned to open the gate before I even start the car but the slowness is annoying. Also, there's no release to allow the gate opening when I simply want to walk out my driveway. That act requires using our spare transmitter and partially opening the gate just to retrieve the mail. The price seems fair but given the design problems it's certainly worth no more than that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Be prepared for some trial and error The price is right and the gate opener works as it should, so I'm not complaining. The problem I ran into is that every gate is different, and if you're retrofitting a gate that was built without thought for a gate opener, you may have a tough time getting the geometry to work out so the gate opens and closes all the way. Your goal is to get a 10 foot wide gate to open fully with a power arm that opens only about 14 inches. So it makes a big difference where you attach the shaft to the gate, and where you attach the opener to the gate post; I spent hours tinkering with the attachments at both ends. Once you get that figured out, the installation goes pretty quickly. The one-button controls, the wireless dial pad, and the solar charger all work as expected. If I had to start over, I would start with a one of the more expensive units because the 200 takes about 30 seconds to open fully.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent opener I bought this to replace one of my 350 openers and it is working fine. Much cheaper than the 350 and much easier to setup. I vhad a 14foot field gate and it is working fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was very pleased with the quality of the product and the flexibility of the hardware.  the installation instructions were clear.  I was a little concerned as I was mounting the fixed arm on a 2-1/2 inch chain link fence post, but it works fine because my gate is small.  My only puzzlement is that there is no hole or notch in the control box for the wires to/from the battery/charger, and if you wanted the gate lock, there would be  no place for those wires also.  My dremel tool fixed that in short order.  I was also puzzled at first about the transformer cube, thought it was a battery charger, but that was my mistake which I realized after reading the output info.  the output being 18 volts AC.  so, the converter to DC must be in the control box!!!
