we have done a LiftMaster 84501 Opener install which is a belt drive opener. All our opener installations include a new boom as well. The size of the door will determine the length of the boom. Most commonly the door height and booms are 7′, 8′, and 10′. This garage door is an 8′ high door therefore an 8′ boom will be installed. Below depicts the boom for reference. In some cases, a new opener may not be required. A gear kit may need to be installed instead of replacing the entire motor so before assuming its best to call us as we would be happy to trouble shoot for you and provide you with your best option.
This is the LiftMaster 84501 Opener after the Install with the 8 ‘ boom depicted as explained above. All the openers we install are Liftmaster motors and both belt or chain drives. This opener is belt drive and is much quieter than a chain drive opener. All our openers have wifi and come with photo eyes as well.
