I bought this opener after buying my new car and having a new baby and baby things to shlep around. It made things so much easier. It is a great buy for the money and has some excellent features. The security pad outside the garage door allows my 14yr old to come and go after school with out having a key to the house we have to worry about her loosing. The two remotes have allowed my husband to have one as well as my father in law. I was able to program the remote capabilities for my car with this opener as well. Its like having three remotes for the same opener! I wasn't so sure about buying a garage door opener with a chain drive. I have never bought an opener before and had just assumed that a belt drive would be quiter. They may be. However, I felt that a chain drive would probably last longer so that is the one I bought. I figured I would just deal with the noise. After having the opener professionally installed by Sears (they did a fabulous job and the guy really knew his stuff), I was very pleasantly surprised that the chain isnt loud at all. As a matter of fact, the thing that is making the noise is my metal garage door. The chain drive doesnt seem to be making noise at all! I would highly recomend this product. The price is great. The lighting feature, extra remotes and car programable ability, the key pad and the lock out capability are absolutely great. I use all of them.
Opener quit working after 10 months and you have to pay for a service call to get warranty service which is about the same as a new opener.
It is fairly quite and hasn't given me any problems. You must lubricate and tighten the chain when necessary.
So far so good, worked as expected.
This is a fantastic garage door opener. Easy to install, versatile, and powerful. The directions clearly explained the install process, remote setup and keypad setup. I'm sad to have sold the house I installed this in.
Bought this to replace another Craftsman garage door opener. I've been using these for many years and they get the job done. The chain drive is a little noisy.
I replaced my old Craftsman garage door opener with this newer model. It works well and has the added benefit of a remote key pad that comes in handy when working in the yard.
I really like the key pad option. Was not hard to install.
