Important Safety Information
Thank you for purchasing a Mighty Mule Gate Operator—
Nortek Security and Control's "do-it-yourself" automatic
gate operator! When correctly installed and properly used,
your Mighty Mule Gate 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. If so, this manual and will enable you to properly
install your Mighty Mule Gate Operator.
The Mighty Mule Gate Operator 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.
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 end user with convenience,
security, and safety.
The Mighty Mule Gate Operator is designed for installation
for single or dual gates. The gate(s) must not exceed 18
feet in length or weigh more than 850 pounds (please see
Technical Specifications on page x). The Mighty Mule Gate
Operator can be used on vinyl, aluminum, chain link, farm
tube, and wrought iron gates.

FOR THE INSTALLER AND END USER
FOR THE INSTALLER AND END USER
WARNING
Typical Entrapment Zones are shown in the diagrams on page iv:
To reduce the risk of injury or death:
1. READ AND FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS.
2. Never let children operate or play with gate controls. Keep the remote control
away from children.
3. Always keep people and objects away from the gate. NO ONE SHOULD CROSS
THE PATH OF THE MOVING GATE.
4. Test the gate operator monthly. The gate MUST reverse on contact with a
rigid object or stop when an object activates the non-contact sensors. After
adjusting the force or the limit of travel, retest the gate operator. Failure to
adjust and retest the gate operator properly can increase the risk of injury or
death.
6. KEEP GATES PROPERLY MAINTAINED. Read the user’s manual. Have
a qualified service person make repairs to gate hardware.
7. The entrance is for vehicles only. Pedestrians must use separate
entrance.
8. 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.
9. SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS.
1. Verify this operator is proper for the type and size of gate, frequency of use
and class of the gate system.
II. During Installation
NEVER install any control device
within the indicated area
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.

10'
2. Be careful with moving parts and avoid close proximity to
areas where fingers or hands could be pinched.
5. Use the manual/emergency release only when the gate is not moving.
I. Before Installation
Zone 1 – leading edge of the gate and the fence post.
Zone 2 – between the gate and the gate post.
Zone 3 – the path of the gate.
Zone 4 – the space between the gate in the open position and any object such as a wall, fence, tree, etc.
Zone 5 – pinch points between the operator and gate.
8. When designing a system that will be entered from a highway or main
thoroughfare, make sure the gate system is placed far enough from the
road to prevent traffic congestion.
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 entrapment protection devices used with
the system (see page xii).
ZONE 2
ZONE 1
3. Review the operation of the system to become familiar with its safety
features. Understand how to disconnect the operator for manual gate
operation (see page iii).

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
becomes damaged,
illegible, or missing, replace them immediately.
Contact Nortek Security and Control for free
replacements.
2. The gate is automatic and could move at any time,
posing serious risk of entrapment. No one should be in
contact with the 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. D
o not attempt to “beat the gate” while the gate is
closing. This is extremely dangerous.
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 gate systems. 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.
Should you need a replacement manual, a copy can
be obtained by downloading one from the Mighty Mule
web site (www.mightymule.com), by contacting Nortek
Security and Control by calling 1-800-543-4283 and
requesting a duplicate copy.
Mighty Mule gate operators utilize Dual Sense Technology™
entrapment protection. Dual Sense Technology™ is built
into every Mighty Mule and provides redundant methods of
entrapment protection for open and close gate directions.
In addition to Dual Sense Technology, every Mighty Mule
gate controller has provisions for the connection of
additional obstruction detection devices such as sensing
edges and photo beams.
These devices may be located where there is an increased
risk of obstruction. Refer to the diagram below.

(RF) signals that promote safety shall be located where the
transmission of the signals is not obstructed or impeded by
building structures, natural landscaping or similar objects.
Vehicular Gate
(recommended, not included)
6. KEEP GATE SYSTEMS MAINTAINED. Always turn power
to operator OFF before performing any maintenance. See
page 28 for maintenance procedures.
8. Disconnect the operator ONLY when the power is
TURNED OFF and the gate is NOT moving.
Wiring to sensors must be located and arranged so the
wiring between the sensor and the gate operator is not
subjected to mechanical damage.
NOTE: Photo beams should
always be located on the
non-travel side of the gate.
5. Do not allow children or pets near your gate. Never let
children operate or play with gate controls. Keep the
remote control away from children and unauthorized
users; store controls where children and unauthorized
users do not have access to them.
7. To operate this equipment safely, YOU must know how to
disconnect the operator for manual gate operation (see
page iii). If you have read the instructions and still do not
understand how to disconnect the operator, contact the
Mighty Mule Service Department.
One or more edge sensors may be located at the leading
edge, bottom edge, and post edge, both inside and outside
of a vehicular swing gate system.
(Installations vary slightly on different types of gates)
Entrapment and Obstruction Protection
Mighty Mules’s Dual Sense Technology™ provides entrapment protection. Since all installations are different, you may need to add
photo beams or sensing edges to help prevent damage to vehicle or other items that could be hit by a moving gate.
Entrapment Alarm
The Mighty Mule Automatic Gate Operator is designed to stop and reverse the gate 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). 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.
