[Home Depot] Chamberlain 3/4hp belt drive garage door opener - $305 (pm with Lowe's or Rona)

Lowe's and Rona has this garage door opener for $339 and Home Depot has it at $359. Price match it for an additional 10% off to bring the price down to $305. Good deal for a 3/4hp quiet opener with a built in back up battery.

Good for double car garages? The info says 7 foot but I think that's referring to height.

For double, I suggest 1/2. not unless your door is made of aluminum.

Pretty sure 7ft is in reference to the height, not width.
And by double, I assume you mean a double as in a single door double in which case, yes. I've been using a 1/2hp on on a double car garage door. 3/4hp might be a bit overkill, but it'll put less strain on the motor which hopefully mean it's more quiet too.

Still holding on for a 1/2 HP motor as 3/4 is too much for a single car garage door. Will also need to buy the extension of you have a newer 8 ft door so this will end up around 400 dollars before installation.

3/4 is bigger than 1/2…

I have this 3/4hp one (more or less), and I have a double garage door (uninsulated, standard height, 'standard'). Installed it myself, not that hard, takes an afternoon for someone like me who isn't a DIY expert. Works fine. I got a chain model, it's honestly fairly quiet and we can't hear it much - if you want to get it even quieter (say a bedroom on top of the garage) then get a belt, it's very quiet, and clean then lubricate the wheels and hinges with a dry lubricant or a low-temp silicone grease designed for garage doors. Makes a big difference.

Most older doors are standard 7' height, and that's the standard kit that most garage door openers come with. For 8' and taller doors you need to buy an additional extension kit that adds a longer chain/belt and rail extension, but only if you don't have an existing chain/belt and rail already in place that you could re-use.

My double wooden segmented door originally came with a 1/3 hp opener. When it had an electronic failure after decades of use, I replaced it with a 1/2 hp model.

B4603 vs B4613
May be someone can share their feedback. As I am looking for one machine to install for a Single Car Garage door (Pretty small one). It really helps me.

i have 4603 installed on a single car garage, it works fine. not sure what info/feedback ur looking for. the only thing i dont like about it is when u close the door with ur phone, it beeps in warning, and it beeps for SO friggin long, like a good 5-10 seconds, and its loud too. i feel like its not really necessary, if theres someone in there, they can just go to the door and block the sensor with their feet, or even if they dont have time for that, theres a wall mounted remote to open the door, or worst case scenario, theres no power, u can just open it by hand. like why is this warning necessary? but even if it is, i think 2-3 beeps that last maybe 1-2 seconds is more than enough.

It's a safety thing, giving plenty of warning in case you are opening or closing the garage door with an internet command from a remote location and can't see what's going on.

If you really hate it, you can use SimpleCommands MyQ support to send open/close commands with no warning from their app or a Google/Alexa routine. I would have thought the warning was a mandatory thing built into the remote API, but apparently not.

right, i thought about that scenario, but even then, whos it hurting? what difference does it make? if anybody is right under the doors, the sensors will prevent it from closing, and anybody inside can just open it by other means. and if its a child trapped inside, well, whoever their parents are, they should thank you because this serves as a warning for their negligence, so hopefully they learn their lesson and dont let more serious things happen to their kids in the future. and if its ur own kid, well, u deserve it.
