LiftMaster Elite 8500

Spacing-Saving Wall Mount Design

LiftMaster's 8500 jackshaft opener offers an ultra-quiet, space-saving, wall-mounted design that's specially designed for garages and unique applications that don't allow for a traditional garage door opener, such as garages with very low ceilings, cathedral or obstructed ceilings, and the home mechanic who uses a lift in the garage. The LiftMaster 8500 mounts easily on the wall beside the garage door, and comes with a remote 200-watt light that can be positioned anywhere in the garage. The optional EverCharge Standby Power System continues to operate your opener - even when the power goes out.
