Thank you for purchasing a GTO/ACCESS SYSTEMS 4000XL. When correctly installed and properly used,
your 4000XL operator will give you many years of reliable service. Please read the following information
to ensure you have the correct system for your particular needs. This manual will enable you to properly
install your 4000XL Automatic Gate Operator.
The 4000XL operator is designed for installation on a pull-to-open single leaf gate. The gate must not
exceed 16 feet in length nor weigh more than 650 pounds* (please see Technical Specifications on page
1). The 4000XL operator can be used on vinyl, aluminum, chain link, farm tube, and wrought iron gates.
Use on solid (wood) gates is not recommended. Solid surface gates have a high resistance to the wind.
If the wind is strong enough, the operator will obstruct, stop, and blow fuses.
*NOTE: By purchasing and installing the HBP4XL Bracket Set, the 4000XL can accommodate gates that
are 20 feet in length and weigh up to 1000 pounds. The 4000XL can be installed on a push-to-open gate
with the addition of the push-to-open bracket [R4388].
The 4000XL operator accommodates extra transmitters, digital keypads, solar panels, push buttons,
automatic gate locks, and other access control products. These optional accessories are noted with the
symbol.
The 4000XL operator features adjustable stall force. This safety feature makes the gate stop and reverse
direction within two seconds when it comes in contact with an obstruction. The “MIN” setting means the
gate will exert the minimum force on an obstruction before it stops and reverses direction.
The 4000XL operator also has an adjustable auto-close feature. It can be set to remain open from 3 to
120 seconds before automatically closing. Pressing the transmitter button at any time after the gate fully
opens will cause it to close immediately. “OFF” is the factory setting; meaning the gate will stay open until
you press the transmitter button (or keypad, etc.) again.
Please call GTO at (800) 543-GATE [4283] or (850) 575-0176 for more information about our GTO/ACCESS
SYSTEMS professional line of gate operators and accessories. Our Sales Department will be glad to give
you the name and phone number of a GTO/ACCESS SYSTEMS dealer near you.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Because automatic gate operators produce high levels of force, consumers need to know the potential
hazards associated with improperly designed, installed, and maintained automated gate operator
systems. Keep in mind that the gate operator is just one component of the total gate operating system.
Each component must work in unison to provide the consumer with convenience, security, and safety.
This manual contains various safety precautions and warnings for the consumer. Because there are
many possible applications of the gate operator, the safety precautions and warnings contained in
this manual cannot be completely exhaustive in nature. They do, however, provide an overview of the
safe design, installation, and use of this product. CAREFULLY READ AND FOLLOW ALL SAFETY
PRECAUTIONS, WARNINGS, AND INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS TO ENSURE THE SAFE
SYSTEM DESIGN, INSTALLATION, AND USE OF THIS PRODUCT.
warning symbol. The symbol
Precautions and warnings in this manual are identified with this
identifies conditions that can result in damage to the operator or its components, serious injury, or
death.
Because GTO automatic gate operators are only part of the total gate operating system, it is the
responsibility of the installer/consumer to ensure that the total system is safe for its intended
use.
How To Manually Open and Close the Gate:
CAUTION: The gate can be opened and closed manually when the operator is disconnected.
ONLY disconnect the operator when the operator power switch is OFF and the gate is NOT moving.
Disconnecting the Operator
1. Turn operator power switch (Control Box) OFF.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
For The Consumer
WARNING: To reduce the risk of injury or death:
1.
READ AND FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS. Failure to meet the requirements set forth in the instruction manual
could cause severe injury or death, for which the manufacturer cannot be held responsible.
2. When designing a system that will be entered from a highway or main thoroughfare, make sure the system is placed
far enough from the road to prevent traffic congestion.
3. The gate must be installed in a location that provides adequate clearance between it and adjacent structures when
opening and closing to reduce the risk of entrapment. Swinging gates must not open into public access areas.
4. The gate and gate operator installation must comply with any applicable local codes.
I. Before Installation
1. Verify this operator is proper for the type and size of gate, its frequency of use, and the proper class rating.
2. Make sure the gate has been properly installed and swings freely in both directions. Repair or replace all worn or
damaged gate hardware prior to installation. A freely moving gate will require less force to operate and will enhance
the performance of the operator and safety devices used with the system.
3. Review the operation of the system to become familiar with its safety features. Understand how to disconnect the
operator for manual gate operation (page iii).
4. This gate operator is intended for vehicular gates ONLY. A separate entrance or gate must be installed for
pedestrian use (page vi).
5. Always keep people and objects away from the gate and its area of travel. NO ONE SHOULD CROSS THE PATH
OF A MOVING GATE.
6. Pay close attention to the diagram below and be aware of these areas at all times.

Zone 4 – the space between the gate in the open position and any object such as a wall, fence, etc.
Zone 5 – pinch points between the operator and gate.
iv GTO 4000XL Instruction Manual © 091610
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
II. During Installation
1. Install the gate operator on the inside of the property and fence line. DO NOT install an operator on the outside of
the gate where the public has access to it.
2. Be careful with moving parts and avoid close proximity to areas where fingers or hands could be pinched.
3. Devices such as contact sensors (safety edges) and non contact sensors (photo beams) provide
additional protection against entrapment.
4. If push buttons or keypads are installed, they should be within sight of the gate, yet located at least 10 feet from any
moving part of the gate (see diagram below). Never install any control device where a user will be tempted to
reach through the gate to activate the gate operator.
5. Do not activate your gate operator unless you can see it and can determine that its area of travel is clear of people,
pets, or other obstructions. Watch the gate through its entire movement.
6. Secure outdoor or easily accessed gate operator controls in order to prohibit unauthorized use of the gate.

III. After Installation
1. Attach the warning signs (included) to each side of the gate to alert the public of auto­matic gate operation. It
is your responsibility to post warning signs on both sides of your gate. If any of these signs or warning decals
become damaged, illegible or missing, replace them immediately. Contact GTO for free replacements.
2. The gate is automatic and could move at any time, posing a serious risk of entrapment. No one should be in
contact with an activated gate when it is moving or stationary.
3. Do not attempt to drive into the gate area while the gate is moving; wait until the gate comes to a complete stop.
4. Do not attempt to “beat the gate” (drive through) while the gate is closing. This is extremely dangerous.
5. Do not allow children or pets near your gate. Never let children operate or play with gate controls. Keep ALL
gate controls away from children and unauthorized users; store controls where children and unauthorized users do
not have access to them.
6.
KEEP GATE AND GATE Operator PROPERLY MAINTAINED. Always turn power to operator OFF before
performing any maintenance. Regularly grease the gate hinges. Clean the push-pull tube with a soft, dry cloth and
apply silicone spray to it at least once per month.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
7. To operate this equipment safely, YOU must know how to disconnect the operator for manual gate operation (page
iii). If you have read the instructions and still do not understand how to disconnect the operator, contact the GTO
Service Department.
8. Disconnect the operator ONLY when the power is TURNED OFF and the gate is NOT moving.
9. Make arrangements with local fire and law enforcement for emergency access.
10. Distribute and discuss copies of the IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS section of this manual with all
persons authorized to use your gate.
11.IMPORTANT: Save these safety instructions. Make sure everyone who is using or will be around the gate
and gate operator are aware of the dangers associated with automated gates. In the event you sell the
property with the gate operator or sell the gate operator, provide a copy of these safety instructions to
the new owner.

Required Safety Precautions for Gates
Install Warning Signs
Warning signs alert people of automatic gate operation and are required when installing the GTO Gate Operator. The
Warning Signs included must be installed on both sides of each gate. Furthermore, a walk-through gate must be installed
for pedestrian traffic. We recommend using the GTO Bulldog Pedestrian Gate Lock [FM145] for controlled access.
Entrapment Protection
GTO’s inherent obstruction settings, even when properly adjusted, may not be sensitive enough to prevent bodily
injury in some circumstances. For this reason, safety devices such as safety edge sensors (or photoelectric sensors),
which stop and reverse gate direction upon sensing an obstruction, are suggested for enhanced protection against
entrapment.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Secondary Means of Protection Against Entrapment
As specified by Gate Operator Safety Standard, UL 325 (30A.1.1), automatic gate operators shall have an inherent
entrapment sensing system, and shall have provisions for, or be supplied with, at least one independent secondary
means to protect against entrapment. The 4000XL utilizes Type A, an inherent (i.e., built-in) entrapment sensing system
as the primary type of entrapment protection. Also, the 4000XL has provisions for the connection of Type B1 or B2
protection to be used as the secondary type of entrapment protection, if desired.
1. For gate operators utilizing a non-contact sensor (e.g., photo-electric sensor– Type B1) in accordance with UL 325
(51.8.4 [h]):
A. Refer to the sensor manufacturer’s instructions on the placement of non-contact sensors for each type of
application.
B. Care shall be exercised to reduce the risk of nuisance tripping, such as when a vehicle trips the sensor while the
gate is still moving.
C. One or more non-contact sensors shall be located where the risk of entrapment or obstruction exists, such as the
perimeter reachable by a moving gate or barrier.
2. For gate operators utilizing a contact sensor (e.g., safety edge sensor– Type B2) in accordance with UL 325 (51.8.4
[i]):
A. One or more contact sensors shall be located at the leading edge, bottom edge, and post edge, both inside and
outside of a vehicular swing gate system.
B. A hard wired contact sensor shall be located and its wiring arranged so that the communication between the
sensor and the gate operator is not subjected to mechanical damage.
C. A wireless contact sensor such as one that transmits radio frequency (RF) signals to the gate operator for
entrapment protection functions shall be located where the transmission of the signals are not obstructed or
impeded by building structures, natural landscaping or similar obstruction. A wireless contact sensor shall
function under the intended end-use conditions.

ENTRAPMENT ALARM (UL 325; 30A.1.1A)
The 4000XL Gate Operator is designed to stop and reverse within 2 seconds when the gate comes in contact with
an obstruction. Additionally, these operators are equipped with an audio entrapment alarm which will activate if the
unit obstructs twice while opening or closing. This alarm will sound for a period of 5 minutes, or until the operator
receives an intended signal from a hard wired entry/exit source (e.g. push button control or keypad) and the gate
returns to a fully open or fully closed position. Turning the power switch on the control box OFF and back ON will also
deactivate the alarm. Wireless controls such as transmitters and wireless keypads will not deactivate the alarm.

Before You Begin...
1. Determine Charging Option for Battery: Transformer OR Solar
NEVER USE TRANSFORMER AND SOLAR PANEL(S) AT THE SAME TIME.
It will damage the control board.
IMPORTANT:
• The 4000XL’s 12 volt battery must be charged by either connecting the transformer (included) or
solar panel kit [FM123] to the control board.
• The transformer is designed for indoor use. If the transformer can be plugged only into an outside
electrical outlet, a weatherproof cover/housing (available at local electrical supply stores) must be
used.
• If your gate is more than 1000 ft. from an AC power source, you will need to use at least 10 watts
solar charging power to charge the battery [FM123]. Refer to the Solar Panel and Gate Activity
chart below.
• All low voltage wire used with the GTO Gate Operator must be 16 gauge dual conductor, multistranded, direct burial wire [RB509]. Do not run more than 1000 ft. of wire.

3. Prepare the Gate
• The gate must be plumb, level, and swing freely on its hinges. • The gate must move throughout its arc without binding or dragging on the ground. • Wheels must NOT be attached to the gate. • Gates over 250 lb. should have ball bearing hinges with grease fittings.
• Post must be secured in the ground with concrete (minimizes twist/flex when the operator is
activated).
• Make sure there is a stable area for mounting the gate bracket (this may require the addition of a
horizontal or vertical cross member).
• We recommend you position the operator near the center-line of the gate to keep the gate from
twisting and flexing, and to avoid back-splash from rain.

6. Materials You may Need for the Installation:
Depending on the type of gate and post, you may need some additional materials/hardware.
• Low voltage wire [RB509]. Length depends upon the distance between the transformer power
supply and the control box. (Page 13)
• If the gate is more than 1000’ away from an AC power source you will need to use at least one 10
watt Solar Panel [FM123] to trickle charge the battery. (Page 2)
• PVC Conduit. (Page 6)
• The diameter of the post should be at least 6” in order to mount the post bracket. (Page 6) • Depending upon the diameter of the post, you may need longer bolts than those provided. Bolts
should be at least 1” longer than the diameter of the post. (Page 6)
• Metal plate for wooden posts. (Page 6)
• A horizontal or vertical cross member or mounting plate may be needed to mount the operator to
the gate. (Page 3)
• Some types of installations require U-Bolts. (Page 10)
• Surge protection for transformer. (Page 15)
• Weatherproof cover for transformer if installed outside. (Page 15)
• For longer, heavier gates (up to 20 ft. or 1000 lbs.) you must purchase the HBP4XL Bracket Set.
(Page 21)
• For push-to-open applications you must have PTO Bracket [R4388). Or if using the HBP4XL
Bracket Set [R4KPTO]. (Page 21).

Install the Post Bracket Assembly
The post bracket is designed to work on a flat post. Posts
must be at least 6” square in order to bolt the post bracket.
When using bolts to mount the post bracket, the bolts must
completely penetrate the post.
• The best method of attaching the post bracket to a metal
post is welding.
• If your post exceeds 8”, it will be necessary to use hex
head bolts longer than those supplied.
• Round wood posts (no smaller than 8” diameter) may be
notched to create a flat surface for attaching the post
bracket.
• Wood posts will require a metal plate (not provided)
between the nuts and post to prevent the operator from
pulling the bolts and washers through the wood.
• A post smaller than 6” in diameter should be made of
metal instead of wood so that it will remain stable while
the operator is moving the gate.
• Masonry columns will require masonry anchors/
hardware (not provided).

Step 1:
Close the gate and place your level
against the horizontal cross member.
Position the level so that the top should
be in the center of the cross member
and overlaps the post. Scribe a line
across the cross member and post.
You will use this line to help determine
position of post and gate brackets.
Step 2:
Position the post bracket on the post with the mounting holes
centered over the scribe line. The post bracket should be
flush with the edge of the post closest to the gate. Mark the
position of post bracket holes on the post.
Step 3:
Drill holes through post as marked using a 3/8” drill bit. Install
the post bracket using the 3/8” x 8” hex head bolts and 3/8” flat
washers, lock washers, and nuts (provided)­.

Check Clearance
Step 7:
Open the gate to the desired open position. Position the
operator so that the gate bracket rests against the gate along
the level scribed line. Check the clearance between the
operator and the gate. The operator should only make contact
with the gate at the gate bracket. There should be a minimum
clearance of 2” between the widest part of the operator arm
and the gate.
When you have achieved the best position for the post
pivot bracket in the open position, insert the 3/8” x 3” bolt and
3/8” flat washer through the aligned holes of the post bracket
and post pivot bracket to hold it in place.
Clamp the gate bracket to the gate using c-clamps or
another type of clamp.
IMPORTANT: While determining the position of the post
pivot bracket, be sure that the position allows for minimum
2“ of clearance between the gate and the operator in both
the open and closed positions. This clearance will give the
operator the most efficient leverage point for opening and
closing the gate and, more importantly, provides the least
possible pinch area.

post bracket and readjust the pivot
bracket until you can achieve the proper
clearance.
With the post pivot bracket in the optimum position for clearance and freedom of movement,
replace the bolt in a post bracket adjustment hole and secure. Return the operator to the open position
and reattach the gate bracket. Recheck the gate operator level and clearance in the open position.
Adjustment of the gate bracket will be necessary if the post bracket was moved. After verifying clearance,
make sure the gate bracket is clamped securely.

Temporarily mount the receiver at this time. You will need to
use the transmitter (page 17) to check the range of the receiver
before permanently mounting it. You may have to try different
locations before permanently mounting the receiver. The
receiver range can vary from 50 to 100 feet depending upon
weather, topography, and external interference.
Mount the receiver:
• Ensuring a line-of-sight between transmitter and
antenna.
• At least 3 feet away from AC voltage.
• As high as possible for optimum range.
• DO NOT mount receiver upside down.
• DO NOT mount receiver on metal fence or post (this will
decrease signal range). If attaching receiver to metal
fence, you should mount receiver on a piece of wood
attached to the fence (see illustration).
The receiver cable:
• Cable length is 10 ft. (receivers with longer cables are
available as special order items; call the GTO Sales
Department).
• NEVER splice receiver cable!
• Run the receiver cable through PVC conduit to protect it
from damage.
• DO NOT run cable in conduit containing AC wiring.

Connect the Transformer
IMPORTANT:
• The transformer is designed and intended for indoor use. If the transformer can be plugged
only into an outside electrical outlet, a weatherproof cover/housing (available at local electrical
supply stores) must be used.
• The only wire acceptable for use with GTO products is 16 gauge multi-stranded, low voltage,
direct burial wire [RB509]. This particular gauge enables the transformer to provide an
adequate charge through the control board to the battery at distances up to 1000 ft.
• DO NOT use telephone wire or solid core wire; these types of wire do not deliver enough
voltage for your gate operator to function and will cause the system to go into a condition
known as “low voltage lockout.”
• NEVER splice wires together. Splicing permits corrosion and seriously degrades the wire’s
ability to carry an adequate current.
• NEVER USE TRANSFORMER AND SOLAR PANEL(S) AT THE SAME TIME! Doing so will
damage the control board.
• If your gate is more than 1000 ft. from an AC power source, you will need to use at least 10
watts solar charging power [FM122/FM123] to charge the battery. Refer to the Solar Panels
and Gate Activity Chart on page 2.
Step 1
Make sure the control box power switch is OFF.

Step 2
Select the electrical outlet outlet into which you will plug the transformer. Measure the distance from this
outlet to the control box following the path where the wire will be laid (allow for an additional 6” to be

Main DIP Switch Settings (MODES)
DIP Switch #1: Soft Start/Stop
ON– Soft start enabled (factory
preset).
OFF– Soft start disabled.
The Soft Start/Stop feature slowly
starts the gate as it begins to open
and slows the gate as it comes
to the closed position. This saves
wear and tear on the gate and gate
operator system.
DIP Switch #2: Warning Buzzer
ON– Buzzer warning enabled
(factory preset).
OFF– Buzzer warning disabled.
The Warning Buzzer alerts
you when the gate operator is
beginning to either open or close
the gate. It sounds for the first 2
seconds in each direction. It also
sounds a warning when the gate
obstructs two times in one cycle.
Switching this to OFF only disables
the open and close warning not
the obstruction warning.
DIP Switch #3: Push/Pull-To-Open
ON: Push-To-Open.
OFF: Pull-To-Open (factory preset).
If your gate opens into the
property the DIP Switch is set to
the OFF position (factory setting).
If your gate opens out from the
property the DIP Switch must be
set to the ON position. NOTE: if
you have a Push-to-Open gate
application you will need a PushTo-Open bracket (see Push-ToOpen Instructions on page 21).
DIP Switch #4: Dual Operation
ON– Second opens simultaneously
with master.
OFF– Second opens after master
(factory preset).
Note: Not applicable for single gate
operator.

Push-To-Open Installation Information
Swinging gates shall not open into public access areas!
A “Push-to-Open” gate opens out from the property (operator arm extends to open the gate). A Push-ToOpen installation requires the purchase of a Push-To-Open Bracket [R4388].
In a Push-To-Open installation the operator is installed while the gate is in the CLOSED POSITION.
Install the Operator
Follow directions for installing the
4000XL beginning on page 7. The PushTo-Open installation differs from the
Pull-To-Open installation in the following
ways:
Gate In Closed Position
1. In a Push-To-Open installation, the arm
fully extends to open the gate, and it
fully retracts to close the gate. (C)
2. You will install the operator while the
gate is in the CLOSED POSITION (arm
fully retracted). (A)
Level O
A
perato
r
Clevis Pin, Bushing, and Hairpin Clip
Fence Post
3. You must use the Push-to-Open Post
Pivot Bracket
[R4388] in the Post Bracket assembly(B).
4. IMPORTANT: While determining the mounting point for the
post pivot bracket assembly be sure that the position allows
for 2” clearance between the gate and the operator in both the
open and closed positions (see diagram below). This clearance
will give the operator the most efficient leverage point for
opening and closing the gate and more importantly provides
the least possible pinch area. (C)

Column Installation
If this operator will be used with gates that are mounted on masonry, brick, or rock (etc.) columns, read
the following carefully before proceeding
A. The simplest solution is to install the operator in a push-to-open configuration. The minimum
clearance is easier to achieve and clearance is no longer a problem, since the operator will be
pushing the gate away from the column instead of pulling it toward the column. It is recommended
that you place a steel plate between the operator mounting brackets and masonry surface for
additional strength.
B. If a push-to-open installation is impossible due to traffic hazards, terrain, etc., another option is to rehang the gate. You may hang it on a post, either in the center of the column or at the back corner, or
move the gate to the back corner of the column.
C. The most difficult solution is to cut a notch in the column to accommodate the operator and power
cable. This job is NOT for the inexperienced!*
