Screw Drive Opener
The screw drive garage door opener technology has been around for 20 years. It is quieter and has less vibration and noise than the chain drive openers. Coupled with the LiftMaster best-in-class limit-sensing technology, this is a great mid-priced garage door opener.
A quick note from the owner: we recommend a belt drive opener. For a very small increase in price you get a much quieter garage door opener with better technology and less vibration. Even LiftMaster gives a longer warranty on the belt drive. Long ago the screw drive was a good choice, but now it has been superseded by the more durable and quieter belt drive system. This system here, however, is the best of the screw drives; it’s just not as good as the belt drive garage door opener.
