PLEASE READ THIS FIRST
Thank you for purchasing a Mighty Mule Gate Opener—
GTO's "do-it-yourself" automatic gate opener! When
correctly installed and properly used, your Mighty Mule
Gate Opener will give you many years of reliable service.
Please read the following information and watch the
enclosed DVD video to ensure you have the correct
system for your particular needs. Furthermore, this
manual and the DVD video will enable you to properly
install your Mighty Mule Gate Opener.
The Mighty Mule Gate Opener is designed for installation
on a pull-to-open single leaf gate (gates that open into
the property). The gate must not exceed 12 feet in length
and weigh more than 300 pounds (please see Technical
Specifications on page x). The Mighty Mule Gate Opener
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 opener will
obstruct and stop.
The Mighty Mule Gate Opener accommodates extra
transmitters, digital keypads, solar panels, push
buttons, automatic gate locks, and other access control
products. These optional accessories (see the enclosed
Mighty Mule Accessory Catalog) are available at most
stores. Your store should be able to special order any
accessory not in stock. If your store cannot special order
accessories, please call the GTO Sales Department (800543-GATE).
stop and reverse direction within 2 seconds when it
comes in contact with an obstruction. MIN is the factory
setting; meaning the gate will exert the minimum force on
an obstruction before it stops and reverses direction.
The Mighty Mule Gate Opener also has an adjustable
auto-close feature. After the gate reaches the fully open
position, it can be set to remain open up to 120 seconds
before automatically closing. Pressing the transmitter
button at any time after the gate opens fully will cause it
to close immediately. OFF is the factory setting; meaning
the gate will stay open until you press the transmitter (or
keypad, etc.) again.
PLEASE NOTE—This operator is not for the following:
• Push to Open
• Column Mounting
• Swing gates longer than 12 feet or
weighing more than 300 lbs.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
For the Consumer
WARNING: To reduce the risk of injury or death:
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 opener
and safety devices used with the system
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 opener installation must
comply with any applicable local codes.
3. Review the operation of the system to become
familiar with its safety features. Understand how to
disconnect the opener for manual gate
operations (see page iii).
4. This gate opener is intended for vehicular gates
ONLY. A seperate entrance or gate must be
installed for pedestrian use (see page viii).
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.

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 Mighty Mule
200 utilizes Type A, an inherent (i.e., built-in) entrapment
sensing system as the primary type of entrapment
protection. Also, the Mighty Mule 200 has provisions
for the connection of Type B2 protection to be used as
the secondary type of entrapment protection, and is
recommended.
1. For gate operators utilizing a contact sensor (e.g.,
safety edge sensor– Type B2) in accordance with UL
325 (51.8.4 [i]):
A. O
ne 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 is 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 Mighty Mule 200 Automatic 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 hardwired 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.

CONNECTING SAFETY DEVICES
Although GTO strongly recommends the use of additional safety devices, we do not endorse any
specific brand names. Only use products that are certified and listed to be in compliance with any
applicable UL standards (Underwriters Laboratories) and national and regional safety codes.
Call GTO Sales at 1-800-543-4283 for information on compatible
products for your specific application.
Make sure the power to the opener is turned off before connecting safety device wiring to the
terminal blocks. Unplugging the transformer does not turn power to the opener OFF.
