Was in my local sears hardware (Midland Park, NJ) and saw they had their 1 HPS belt drive opener on sale. I installed this exact model about a year ago and it has worked great. Best price I have seen.

Price seems to be in store only though, so obviously YMMV.

Question:

My brother and I recently bought a large residential/commercial property with a large attached garage (1,500+ square feet).

The garage door is very large, it's a double bay entrance with a single door. The door needs some TLC and will eventually need to be replaced.

They have a garage opener installed but it doesn't work (bad motor).

Is this a simple replacement and would it work for a large door? Door opens manually easily enough at the moment

most likely it can be installed, but there are some things to consider like the height of the door. Pretty much all of the garage door openers you buy off the shelf are for 7 foot tall doors. In order to use them for a taller door, you need an appropriate sized extension kit. Sometimes you can get an extension for use with an 8 foot tall door in stock, but you typically have to order the extension for anything taller than that. I this case, an extension kit would include a section of track and a longer belt. A Chamberlain extension would probably work, as this is just a re-branded chamberlain opener.

Other than that, the installation isn't too difficult. It might take a couple of hours, especially if one person is doing it. Two people makes it go a bit faster, particularly with the hanging and testing/programming part... A pro will have it up in less than an hour, but they could install these things in their sleep...

8x18 is the max size for this opener. But if you have a commercial garage door that's taller (Dock Door), you will need a chain drive and 2HP.

I bought this opener for my house last year due to a loud chain opener under my house.

This is whisper quiet, battery back-up for power outage, and can monitor/control with your phone.

It took 3 hours to install by myself.

Almost worth it for the two remotes, keypad, and smartphone connectivity alone.

$170 for the garage door opener. Probably about $500 to get it installed where I'm at. Frown I think installation is not hard but the spring tension and lining up the chain is what gets me. I tried to do some minor repair on my own and once I got the chain off it was a mess to put it back and to get the right tension back. SHM

This GDO is about the simplest install you couud possibly imagine. The belt is already "installed" on the track sections... you just put the sections end to end and click them together.

super easy install. if you already have an opener in place it's basically a remove and replace job. if all else fails sears will install it for $150 I believe.

i believe this is a rebadged chamberlain/liftmaster unit. i got 3 of them last year (SD from home depot for about $115 each). the belt drive is amazingly quiet. installation took about 3 hours for the first unit, 2 hours for the 2nd unit, down to about 1.5 hours for the last one. really a pretty easy DIY job.

Good to know. That's ONLY if I don't touch the track and chain area right?
