The Red gate operator update.

For whatever reason we hadn’t heard from a customer in a long time. Could have been  budget issues or a change of management, not sure.  I went by the customer and noted that they had removed the Red Doorking operator that we had installed. I noticed that is was still onsite and sitting off to the side getting buried in the accumulating banyan leaves. I asked what was up with it.  The main thing was that they said I could have it. So, almost five years to the day after installing it I loaded it into my truck and brought it back to the shop. I washed it down and wired it up and it worked.

The red powder coat looks like it was just done. Only thing wrong I believe was that the chain was rusted.  This was installed next to Biscayne Bay close to salt air and was supposed to have been lubricated regularly. I can guarantee that this gate operator, as old as it is, is better than most newly manufactured operators on the market.
