Jackshaft Operators

Big Advantages

Jackshaft operators are wall-mounted beside the garage door. Moving the overhead motor from the ceiling to the wall frees up overhead space to highlift your garage door.

This clever and clean installation comes with a variety of bells-and-whistles and provides some big advantages. Only Liftmaster makes a jackshaft operator that we recommend for residential applications.

Pros & Cons

Less Noise
Typically, belt drive operators are slightly quieter. Chain can bounce slightly. The less moving metal, the quieter the machine.

These motors have a Slow Start, Slow Stop functionality, reducing stress on the gears and reducing future maintenance expenses.

Premium Warranty
Liftmaster offers lifetime warranties on their belt-driven operators. 

Slightly costlier
Belt-driven operators are slightly more expensive than their chain-driven counterparts. See pricing for more details.
