How does the Mighty Mule automatic gate opener work?

How does the gate close?

Mighty Mule automatic gate openers are fully capable of adjustable programming to allow for the gate to close automatically after reaching its fully opened position. If you wish to have the gate close sooner than that temporarily, push the button on the Mighty Mule entry transmitter to activate the gate.

What happens if the gate hits something while it is in motion?

The Mighty Mule automatic gate opener a built-in safety obstruction sensor that once activated, causes the gate to stop and reverse its direction (much like a garage door opener). The sensitivity for this safety feature is fully adjustable.

What if I don't want my Mighty Mule automatic gate opener to close automatically?

To disable this feature, open the control box, and with a small screw driver - turn the Auto Close dial until the auto close feature; is off.

What about security for my gate opener?

Will the automatic gate opener hold the gate tightly closed?

Depending on the length and type of gate, there is a possibility that the end of the gate can flex enough to allow a person or an animal to enter. For maximum stability and additional security, the Mighty Mule Automatic Gate Lock should be installed.


Can I lock my gate?

Yes, Mighty Mule's Automatic Gate Lock will lock the gate and has a manual key as well.


Do you carry an automatic lock that is for pedestrians only?

Yes, we have a product that will do just that. It is called the Bulldog Pedestrian Gate Lock. It does not require a gate opener to lock a "walk-thru" gate. It utilizes additional accessories such as a digital keypad for added security. It is wonderful for areas around pools or daycare centers that need to restrict pedestrian traffic.


Can anyone remove my Mighty Mule automatic gate opener arm by removing the clevis pins?

Yes. However, to avoid theft, add the Mighty Mule Pin Lock accessory on the front end of the swing gate operator to ensure that only the homeowner can unlock and release the opener.

How does climate affect Mighty Mule automatic gate opener?

Mighty Mule's Automatic Gate Openers are currently in use from the Arctic to the Amazon. Because of the battery's design, extreme cold may cause it to operate a little slower than under normal conditions, and may cause it to malfunction. Therefore, we recommend an optional battery heater in extreme cold weather. Strong winds can also affect the operator.

Does lightning affect the Mighty Mule automatic gate opener?

Unfortunately, no electrical devices can withstand a direct lightning hit. However, Mighty Mule automatic gate openers have built-in ground paths on the control board designed to diffuse mild static charges created by lightning.

Transmitters and Receivers

Can I open my garage door opener with my Mighty Mule entry transmitter?

Garage door openers use a different radio frequency than the Mighty Mule Automatic Gate Opener. If you want your Mighty Mule entry transmitter to activate both, you can purchase a special Mighty Mule garage door receiver (special order item RB709U-NB) The garage door receiver has the same frequency as the Mighty Mule Automatic Gate Operator. If your gate and garage are within close range of each other and you wish to have one transmitter to do it all, then you can purchase a two or three button entry transmitter that will operate the openers separately.

Can I open my Mighty Mule automatic gate operator from my house with my Mighty Mule transmitter?

The normal operating range of the Mighty Mule entry transmitter is 50 ft. to 100 ft. However, because it uses a radio frequency and is subject to interference by weather conditions, topography, outside interference, etc., the actual range may vary. If your house is within 1000 ft. of your gate, you can place a second set of low voltage wires in the ground at the same time you are running wire for the transformer and connect it to an unlit Push Button inside the house. At the control box, simply connect the wires to the accessory terminal block.


Can anyone with a Mighty Mule transmitter be able to open my gate?

No, not if you personalize your transmitter code. Every Mighty Mule entry transmitter comes with identical factory settings, but you can personalize your code by repositioning the dip switches inside the Mighty Mule entry transmitter. Please review your installation manual for additional programming information.


Can anyone open my Mighty Mule gate operator without my entry transmitter?

Mighty Mule offers a weatherproof Digital Keypad accessory (for wired or wireless applications) which can be mounted on a post near the gate. The keypad can be easily programmed with up to 25 different entry codes for use by family members, delivery personnel, employees, etc. An additional security feature is the ability to change only one code at a time. For example, you can give a delivery person an entry code and then that particular code can be changed or eliminated after the delivery, without affecting the other codes.


Just how are Mighty Mule's automatic gate operators powered?

All Mighty Mule automatic gate openers are low voltage (DC) automatic gate operators and are operated by a 12 volt, 7.0 amp-hour battery which also provides battery backup during a power outage.


How many times will the Mighty Mule automatic gate operator activate during a power outage?

On the average, a fully charged 12 volt, 7.0 amp-hour battery will provide fifty (50) cycles during a power outage. The number of cycles may vary depending on factors such as the type and size of gate, number of added accessories, age of the battery and weather conditions.


Just how are Mighty Mule's batteries charged?

Each of Mighty Mule's (DC powered) Automatic Gate Openers comes with a transformer that plugs into any 110/120 electrical outlet and provides the power to charge to the battery. The transformer is connected to the control box with up to 1000 ft. of 16 gauge, multi-stranded, dual conductor, direct burial, low voltage wire (not provided). If there is not a standard outlet within 1000 ft. of the control box, the battery charge can be maintained with optional solar panel(s). If an outlet is located outside, the transformer can be placed inside a weatherproof electrical box and connected to the control box with low voltage wire.
