       Gate Opener Description Top of Page

    An Estate Swing gate opener is designed to be easy to install for the average handyman. Every unit comes standard with everything needed to automate your gate, including mounting brackets (hardware to affix brackets to the gate and column are not included). The Classic series of Estate Swing have a few features that are made for DIY installers. First it is has no learning procedure like all other openers. Because of its smart usage it runs from one limit to the other without having to learn the procedure to the processor. Some times simpler is better! The magnetic limit switches are adjustable on the bottom of the arm; simply slide them to where you need them. Third, it has fully adjustable brackets that can be made to fit any situations including push to open. Installers have alternate parts for gate openers on hand; homeowners do not; that is why these brackets are designed to fit all needs.

    Also included is Estate Swings unique user directed instruction manual. Estate Swing, being closely involved with its customers, has created the first user driven updateable manual for continuous improvement of installation ease, maintenance and trouble shooting updates. Gate Crafters also brings DIY projects to a new level of simplicity with our 7-day/week technical support and 24/7/365 scheduled installation support.

    All Estate Swings are built to the highest standards world wide. Each unit is put through rigorous quality control testing on each component. The Estate Swing E-S300 meets and exceeds UL325 standards for anti-crushing safety.

    The Estate Swing E-S300 Single Opener is a low voltage system, eliminating the need to run 110 AC to your gate. Simply run low voltage wire to a household outlet within 200' of the operator. This is a Constant Duty DIY gate opener. What does this mean to you? These gate openers will run again and again without running a battery down. All other DIY gate openers run off of a battery and are trickle charged after a cycle is run to recharge that battery. If cycles are run off the battery faster then the power can charge it, then your gate opener runs the risk of being temporarily stuck closed. With the E-S300 Classic the power for the cycles comes directly from the 24V transformer plugged into a standard outlet; the batteries (not included and optional) are strictly backup for power outages. Thus add another level of reliability and peace of mind.

    The Estate Swing E-S300 Single Opener has features never before seen or new to economically priced openers.

       Gate Opener Features Top of Page

  • NO Learning Procedure This is one of the most desirable features of this intelligent control board. Once everything is wired in you can just run your gate opener. All other openers have to go through a learning procedure to know how long to run for and other details. No hassles here.

  • Time Tested Design The Classic series of the Estate Swing is the identical design of the first electro-mechanical gate opener. This design has been used for over 30 years and is still in use on thousands of homes and businesses around the globe. This is the design that started it all and made people confident that electro-mechanical could be more reliable, efficient and cost effective than hydraulic gate openers.

  • Easy Access Adjustable Magnetic Limit Switches There are many pluses to the limit switches on this unit. They are easy to adjust and access. They are on the bottom of the exterior of the arm, simply slide them to the location needed and tighten down a screw. Secondly, both the open and closed point is adjustable; this gives you more flexibility of stopping points after the brackets are bolted into place. Lastly they are magnetic so there are no components to wear out or break from contact.

  • Adjustable Run Time/Soft Stop One of the parameters you can designate for this opener is a run time. The advantage of this is, again, it is not a learned procedure, but something you input manually as an adjustment for your soft stop. The purpose is to give an option for where you want soft stop to begin. If you make the run time the same as the actual run time from limit to limit it will slow down half way; as you extend the run time past that time the soft stop will become shorter and give you a faster opening time. The board makes it easy to set, it has a counter on it telling you how many seconds it takes to go from open to close - then you simply put that number or a number of your choosing to delay the slow down.

  • EZ read digital display notifications: The display will indicate when it is sending poser to the electric lock, when it is open, when it is in auto-reclose pause countdown, when it is closing and visually counting the run time. All this info makes it easy for the Do-It-Yourselfer to understand their gate opener clearer and look like a master installer.

  • Closed position lock release: The Estate Swing classic is the ONLY gate opener on the market to release your solenoid gate lock for a second time after the closed limit is reached. Why is this a plus? It shows true appreciation for customer feedback. For years the number one complaint from customers is the solenoid gate locks take too much force to lock back into place. And with the advent of soft stop this has become even more of an issue. The Estate Swing classic send a 1 second burst of power to the lock to allow the lock to re-latch electronically rather than through force.

  • Obstruction sensing alarm: Safety has always been the top priority for Estate Swing. The classic now comes with an alarm to let you know when a problem has occurred. If the gate makes contact with an obstacle it will stop and back up for 3 second to clear the obstacle. If the gate is jammed on the obstacle making an obstruction happen 3 times in a row the system will shut down and an alarm will sound until the system is reset notifying anyone around the gate that there is a problem needing immediate attention.

  • Large 24V Motor - The motor of the E-S300 is one of the largest found on any residential gate opener. It is well equipped to handle gates up to 600 lbs, more weight then found in many heavily ornamented gates.

  • Easily Adjustable Brackets - The brackets are set up to be user customized to fit any need configuration; push to open, pull to open, mounting on back of post, mounting on side of post, etc.

  • Large Opening Arch Capabilities - The E-S300 has the ability to open gates up to 110 degrees, well beyond most other openers.

  • Advanced Gear System - The gear system is one of the most important parts of a gate opener; it influences power, control, reliability, and the life span of the motor. The E-S300 uses an advanced worm gear system cutting down on bearing wear and motor deterioration.

  • All Weather Compatible - This arm can handle the cold, heat and everything in between.

  • Highest Level of Safety The Estate Swing E-S300 automatically reverses directions when it comes in contact with an obstruction. The Estate Swing E-S300 also has the safest method of controlling safety devices. All safety devices are set up on a Normally Closed circuit. Some gate openers are set up on a normally open circuit. What this means is that the Estate Swing E-S300 is virtually fail-safe. If a safety device does not activate for any reason the Estate Swing E-S300 will not operate, keeping your loved ones and assets safe. Gate openers with safety devices set up on a Normally Open connection will operate with the disabled safety device and the consumer will not know the safety device is inactive until it is too late!

  • Quick, Safe and Secure Manual Release Every unit comes with a key chain ready manual release key. In the rare case power has failed and the back up battery is not charged, the manual release key can be used to safely open your gate without damaging your opener arm or disconnecting anything from your gate.

  • Adjustable Performance Features Adjust the performance of your gate opener to fit your tastes, lifestyle and needs. You can adjust Pause Times, Opening/Closing Delays, Static Force, etc.

  • 24 Volt Output Terminals Convenient for accessories requiring power. i.e. locks, sensors, etc.

  • has the resources you need. How do you use your gate opener system once you get it? is the only retailer to give a real answer to this question. We have develop videos for installing many of our gate openers and products and write DIY focused manuals for most gate openers and have individual instructions for each accessory to be installed with each gate opener.

       Words from Senior Application Engineer, Anthony Gaeto Top of Page
    Anthony Gaeto Application Engineer "The Estate Swing Classic series is one of the best things I have seen come to the gate opener market in a while. It combines an advanced yet simplified electronics board with tried and true mechanical technology. In an era of adding bells and whistles to everything sometimes it is better to have something that just plain works and in a way that even the untrained installer can understand. A real plus for the Do-It-Yourself market.

    The Classic series gate openers are linear actuators reflecting 30 years of gate opener in-use reliability. The design of the Estate Swing Classic opener arm is the design that launched electro-mechanical gate openers. In the early days of gate opener automation, the thought was if you were going to do a piston style gate opener you had to use hydraulics; however low voltage motors and gear driven system are far more efficient and maintenance free. This is the design that made the transformation and the design was so solid it has lasted for 30 years and is still being used today.

    The magnetic limit switches make a big difference in the longevity of this design. Magnetic limit switches have no parts that make contact; eliminating the possibility of a part wearing down over time. The adjustment can be done on both the open and closed side. Many gate openers simply are adjustable on one side or the other but if you want to make adjustments on the permanent side you would have to re mount the brackets. The adjustment is also the easiest I have seen. Most require turning some type of screw and guessing on the hidden limits position and degree of movement. These you simply slide them along the bottom of the arm and tighten a screw when you are set. You will be able to see how much you are moving the limit in adjustment.

    The intelligent control board is the best DIY aspect of this opener. The high tech part of it is all in the back end of how it regulates power, senses obstructions, etc. The user end is simplicity at its best. There is no learning process so this means you can just hook up all the wires, press your remote and it will begin running. Some adjustments to the limit placement and some of the parameters will probably need adjustment, but at least it will be a running gate opener with no confusing programming steps to begin.

    Safety is always a top concern with Estate Swing. They have designed their system to be the safest in the world. We at always recommend having external safety devices such as photo sensors installed on your opener to prevent damage or injury. The Estate Swing Classic series, first, has an auto-stop feature built in. Even if you do not decide to install any external safety devices, the Estate Swing E-S 300 will automatically stop if it comes in contact with an obstruction. The top safety feature is how safety devices are wired on the Estate Swing Classic. Other gate openers have a flawed system; they are hooked up on a normally open circuit, which means if your safety device is not functioning properly it will not stop the movement of your driveway gate. This can lead to disastrous results. The Estate Swing Classic works on normally closed connections for safety devices. In most cases, if the safety device is not functioning properly, the normally closed connection will be open, the same as when there is a breach of the safety device, and the gate will not move. was selected as a Estate Swing partner because our profound commitment to customer service. Every member of our technical support staff has had direct training from the manufacturer. We are available 7 days a week for support, even during holidays, from 9 A.M to 9 P.M. Eastern Time. Also we will make ourselves available to you after hours upon request for installation questions absolutely free 24 hours a day. I believe every customer will find the support they need at and that is what has lead us to be the number one seller of gate openers in the world.

    I stand behind the values of and would like to invite you to give us a try. You will find the service, knowledge and enthusiasm can't be beat; and the price will amaze you as well."

       Estate Swing Classic Factory visit October 2010 Top of Page

    Innovation and quality are the hallmarks of the “Classic” line of gate openers. This line is known for innovations that really matter. Yes, it is true that some if the new openers look sleeker or have better aesthetic designs but the folks that manufacture the classic focus on something much deeper. Currently the classic swing operators are the only openers on the market that have solved the soft close locking issue with their true lock system. It is this type of innovation that keeps this line in front of the pack for meaningful innovations.

    This design is 40+ years old, it has survived because it “just works” its super simple and reliable worm drive gear reduction, sealed ball bearings and acme screw combination leaves very little to go wrong, giving the Estate Swing Classic one of the longest life expectancies in the industry. The Classics’ innovative fully sealed magnetic limit switches are the perfect pair, adding even more to their reputation of quality.

    The focus on life expectancy and cross compatibility has been great, we have been through a half dozen board upgrades that all match with the same opener arms. This allows for customers to enjoy the latest innovations in the industry, easily added to their existing operator arms. We meet with factory reps face to face at least twice a year, when we meet they are constantly probing us for what quality issues may have crept up and how customer demands are changing. I say the word “classic” stands for the way that this manufacturer treats its customers, the classic way we all want to be treated.
