Yes, I have one, it is awesome. Quiet and smooth. Put in new in '08 and no probs yet, knock on wood... Brother has one too, and it is same. Mine is Chamberlain, brothers is Craftsman, both good units. Have no idea on price these days though. Biggest thing is the quietness.

I changed mine out last summer and agree with what Box had to say. So quiet you wonder whether the door is really moving. I think it was about 150 at menards.

Very nic I have them in my shop. 7 years now and no problems. I put a couple screw drives in my garage when I built the house and the one is great but the other is noisy and acts up when its cold. Would go to belt again if to do over again. Price depends on what H.P. you get Chamberlain is my choice they last forever. Watch sales at home d or menar for decent prices usually around $125 to $200.

Thank You guys.I am probably going to go with the Chamberlin. My Craftsman chain drive is 17+ years old and either the sensors or the circuit board went. Either way I think it's ime to put it to rest. I'll limp it along till it warms up. Does anyone have the parking assist? My DW wants a tennis ball but if the laser works I would prefer that.

    • Box? i don't think I've ever seen them but will be looking in a little while
    • Buy a box of cheesy tots.  Cook.   Use rack over sheet pan on grill or in oven.  😀
    • Cheesy tots sound great! Anyone got a recipe?
    • If you're feeling adventurous some time follow the same process you just explained but instead of using a rib rub try using a generous amount of Montreal Chicken seasoning with yellow mustard as your glue.  Also, try a wing or thigh before using the Famous Dave sauce.   Goof Luck
    • I took wings, thighs and legs and put rib rub on them and let them sit for 4 hours then I smoked them for about 90 minutes this morning. Tonight I put them on the grill to crisp up and slathered with Famous Dave's. I seem to kill chicken on the grill but with the smoker I can regulate better plus all that flavor. Only way I'll do chicken now!
    • The grain belt is a bigger sin.😁
    • Yes, I noticed the bottled water in the back👺
    • I did 2 racks of St. Louis style ribs on the pellet smoker yesterday, rubbed with smoky mesquite seasonings...  so good no bbq sauce was used when they were eaten!!!  did the 3-2-1 method but used different temps from the last time I did them...  started at 175 for 3 hrs, then 230 wrapped and finished unwrapped at 230...  Oh Yea!!!
