Lightning knocked out my Stanley chain drive which I never had a problem with. Replaced it with a Chamberlain chain drive. I think a door in good working order is probably more important. I bought what was on sale and something that had the a remote light switch and two remotes. I piggybacked an outdoor light to it.

I have a Wayne Dalton chain drive for an aluminum door. It does the job, but it sounds like the house is about to fall down when I open/close the garage. If I had to do it over again, I'd definitely get a belt drive because they are the most quiet and least maintenance. You will eventually need to replace the belt, but you're talking years down the road (10 years or more). You can get a fully loaded Chamberlain Whisper Drive for under $200.

Good Luck!

      I love these fish! The attitude is always fun and they taste great. The strip of y bones can be cut right out with a little effort.    I know where I'll be early in the morning May 13th with topwaters and swimbaits!

      Grubens did permits the 2016 season. Fortune bay stopped writing BWCA permits the end of the 2015 season. Sally retired and that ended the permits at the bay.  Some day we will be able to buy permits on line and print them.

      The video shown in the link posted above shows most of the fish they're handling going back because they're not ready or too green. The video was from 4/14 so I would bet they are done as that was 1 1/2 weeks ago. Cutfoot was done in less than a week. Cliff will be able to tell you for sure when then finished but I'd guess they were done by the end of last week.
