For easy access, The Eagle-2000-FR model allows you to push the gate open during a power outage, in case of an emergency, with the use of a foot pedal, that disengages the operator from the gate. The foot pedal can be secured with a pad lock in the closed or open position and can be used on gates up to 45 feet or 1000 pounds. The Eagle-2000-FR comes with a 5 year commercial and 7 year residential warranty. It is equipped with a ½ horsepower continuous duty direct drive motor along with our Diamond control board. The most feature packed and installer friendly control board in the industry. For heavier applications we recommend the Eagle-2000-FR-1HP model, which has a 1 horsepower motor and built for gates up to 45 feet or 2000 pounds.
