Eagle 1000 FR 1/2 HP Sliding Gate Opener

Despite being the most expensive opener on our list, the Eagle 1000 FR has just about anything you could need.

It can operate gates up to 600 pounds and 27 feet long, with a power rating of 1/2 HP. Those who have smaller gates at home or in their businesses would find it perfect.

Thanks to its heavy-duty nature, this machine is ideal for heavy traffic flowing through gates. Though the tag may say ‘heavy-duty,’ be careful. A pin could drop while the gears are turning, so silent is it that you could hear it.

As you might expect considering its price, this model comes with a full set of features and perks. A powerful motor powered by 12 horsepower is accompanied by a powerful 12.5-inch LCD screen, two wireless remote controls, and the Eagle Monitor Photo Eye system.

If there is no power, you can open the gate manually using the foot pedal. This top-of-the-line model also comes with a 5-year limited warranty when installed on a residential property.

As a result, it’s an excellent option for residential and small business areas that will maintain a high level of traffic.
