Types of Garage Door Openers

Chain Drive

The strongest and most cost-effective

The LiftMaster chain drive operator uses a solid chain to drive the door. This is the strongest system although it generally makes a little more noise than the other types of openers. LiftMaster makes three different levels of chain drive openers that range from the value-oriented 8165 to the premium ultra quiet and strong 8360.

This is the quietest system and includes a shock absorber to reduce the strain on the gears and increase operator life. LiftMaster makes three levels of belt drive openers that range from the value-oriented 8155 to the premium ultra quiet and strong 8550W.

Jack Shaft

The best for high-lifted doors

The LiftMaster jack shaft operator connects to the door torsion shaft and uses no rail. This is a system that can be used in an application where no rail is desired, like a high lift or vertical lift application. The jack shaft is also a great operator for light duty commercial applications.

Other Garage Door Openers

Besides the LiftMaster brand operators, we also sell three other brands that have a specific characteristics making them better for a situation. These brands are discussed below


The Linear brand of operator is reliable, quite, and is found where the customer has a linear gate operator and wants to use an garage door opener that is compatible with the same remote. This typically happens in apartment complexes. We stock, sell, and service linear operators.


Marantec operators are German in design and are very quiet. In Austin, they tend to be found in homes built 6 to 10 years ago. They were a favorite of builders because of their low noise and low cost. They do have a great warranty. We install these in locations where customers already have a Marantec operator and want another or there are two doors and one of the operators needs to be replaced.


The Sommer operator is a unique German operator with a lot of clever design and is also extremely quite. We use these operators on Swing out custom doors.


Genie operators have been around for many years. In our opinion they have varied in quality over the last 15 years but seem to be improving in the past four years. They are typically selected by volume builders due to their price and packaging with builder type garage doors. We will work on these operators and do carry some stock items for the most frequent issues we see with these operators. These operators can be found in Big Box stores also at appropriately cheap prices.
