Tommy. My metal 'Garador' is 2 metres wide and can easily be
opened and closed with one hand. My previous Duralift motor was rated
at one third horse power and worked perfectly since 1992 but when it failed recently I could not get spares for it. I made the (wrong) assumption that the new Chamberlain Basic would be powerful enough to do the job. My electrician also considered that this basic model would be strong enough but, having fitted it, discovered that
this basic motor didn't have sufficient power. Therefore is it
possible to purchase a suitable motor without having to pay for
the complete package ?
