       Gate Opener Description
    The Mighty Mule FM502 Dual Opener can be used in residential applications including automating gates made of farm tubing, steel, aluminum, wood, and chain link, along with many other gate types. This opener can be set on the left or right and is used in the standard pull-to-open operation. By adding the push-to-open bracket accessory (not included) the Mighty Mule FM502 can be used to push the gate open away from the property with the arms still mounted on the inside.

    The Mighty Mule FM502 Dual Opener is a low voltage system, eliminating the need to run 110 AC to your gate. Simply run 16-gauge low voltage to a household outlet within 1000' of the operator or use a solar panel. With the Mighty Mule FM502's oversized control box you can house (2) 7 amp/hour batteries to accommodate higher opening cycle situations and extra storage for solar. (Second battery is not included).

    The Mighty Mule FM502 Dual Opener can be used with GTO Inc.'s complete line of accessories including keypads, transmitters, exit wands, gate locks, solar panels, and more.

       Gate Opener Features

  • Soft Start/Soft Stop - Soft start/soft stop is a feature in which the control board, during the set up process, learns where your opening and closing points are for the swing of the gate. Then during normal operation the gate operator automatically slows the motion of the gate to smoothly meet with the gates destination point. This feature can also be turned off.
  • Closing Timer - Set your gate to close between 0 and 120 seconds after reaching the full open position or turn this option off to leave it open until an entry device activates closing motion.
  • Learn Mode - With the Mighty Mule FM502 the learning process, the end points are determined by the user via remote. A simple press of the transmitter tells the opener where to stop and when the opener is set to the desired stop points, save the settings on the board.
  • GateCrafters.com has the resources you need. How do you use your gate opener system once you get it? GateCrafters.com is the only retailer to give a real answer to this question.

       Words from Senior Application Engineer, Anthony Gaeto
    Anthony Gaeto Application Engineer "The Mighty Mule FM502 by GTO Inc. is the largest opener of the Mighty Mule line and best for larger light weight gates. The Mighty Mule FM502 has been widely used for over a decade with a dedication to dependability and quality. They have taken that reputation and asked consumers to apply that same level of loyalty to this new opener. This opener features greater leverage with its long stroke length.

    Featuring soft start and stop, the Mighty Mule FM502 helps to preserve the life of the gate. When your gate approaches its endpoints the opener will slow the momentum of the gate, this prevents damage to the gate.

    Another advantage of the Mighty Mule FM502 is the oversized control box. GTO listened attentively to the wishes of their customers and answered with their new design. Customers many times wish to use an extra battery for larger number of cycles, extra power storage for solar. The new control box design has an extra storage space built in for a second battery.

    Even though this is an easy to install DIY gate opener GateCrafters.com is still available for any installation or technical support the installer may need. Gate Crafters has years of experience with GTO inc. openers as well as many other brands and accessories and is readily available 7 days a week, 9am to 9pm eastern time just by calling our number: 1 800 537-4283.

       Factory Visit Updates
    As part of one of GateCrafters.com's constant quality checks and knowledge updates. I personally go to visit the factories in which the products we sell are made. I made 6 visits to the GTO Inc. US facility, most recently in Februrary 2009. My visits accumulated a considerable period of time visiting because they were not only to tour the facility and meet employees, but also for authorized factory training. During training I received a certificate (Click here to view) and a score of 100% on the Factory Certified training exam.
