When you enter or exit your house, do you really have to exert your entire potential energy in order to open your driveway gate?

It is unlikely that you will be able to do so in most cases. Isn’t it better to purchase a gate opener that automatically opens and closes? If you have one, it will make your life so much easier.

Your peace of mind will be enhanced with a gate opener that automatically opens.

However, where does one find the right Eagle Sliding Gate Opener?

Regardless of whether your gate is a swing gate or a sliding gate, this guide can help you choose the right automatic gate opener.

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 their homes 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, 2 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 in 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.
