Our Best-Selling Opener
Other Liftmaster Garage Door Opener Models:
Jackshaft Opener: Model 8500
We also carry and install jackshaft garage door openers. The Liftmaster 8500 is an Elite series jackshaft operator. This opener is typically used only in special case scenarios. This opener mounts to the side of the garage door on the wall—in order to allow for higher lift and more clearance for special case garages. The side mount operation is unique and innovative. It allows for a very efficient and unique style of operation and installation, and uses the same technology and gadgets that are available with our other myQ compatible garage door openers. If you have any questions about our jackshaft opener, please call for more details.
Heavy Duty Chain Drive Opener: Model 8587W
Our Heavy Duty chain drive garage door opener is for the heaviest, thickest wooden or wood faced steel garage doors that can be up to 3″ thick, 12 feet in height, and 20 feet in width! It has the durability and strength to get the job done, but lacks the luxurious features of the 8557. The 8557 Belt Drive is very similar, but every now and then a door comes along that is bulky enough to demand this opener. This unit has built in Wi-Fi so that you can monitor and control your garage door from anywhere in the world!
Screw Drive Opener: Model 3240
This opener is typically used only in situations when the rail of a garage door opener needs to be cut down to accommodate a large beam, attic staircase, or other obstruction on the ceiling that prevents a standard 7′ or 8′ rail from being used. This is a premium screw-driven garage door opener, and is considered the best screw drive opener on the market. It is worth noting that screw drive openers work intermittently in the extreme cold and heat, require adjustment and lubrication at least twice a year, and contain several unreliable plastic components. This is why most of our customers decide to go with the new belt driven openers.
Chain Drive Opener: Model 8165
Our chain drive model is one of the best in the industry. However, we make sure to tell our customers that chain drive openers use plastic drive gears, are very noisy, and are classified in the contractor series. These attributes are the main reason that our customers have transitioned to the new technology of belt driven openers. The cost is nearly the same, and what you get for your money is nowhere near the same. If you are still interested in a chain or screw driven opener, feel free to call for more details on these openers!
