Don't know how long it's been at this price but it's very cheap, belt driven and has an infra-red obstacle detector. Note that you may have to buy a canopy arm (£40) for certain types of doors, as is normal. The only gotcha is that there is only one remote control (£30 for another!) and no keypad entry.

Seems it is Italian made - an improvement on China.
Full instructions downloadable on screwfix site with a UK helpline- bodes well.

I looked into getting this before new year, but from what I could tell it didn't come with the infrared sensors for the reversal system. They are optional extras.

I went with the Chamberlain chain drive one (also from screwfix) not on offer but still only 116 notes. Came with the IR sensors one remote and switch for inside the garage. For typical uk doors you need the cannopy arm. Says £44 on the web, but I went into our local screw fix and it was more like £25. Bought an extra remote and paid for morning delivery, came to £177 all in.

Fitted it in about 6 hours, top bit of kit.

Toolstation also do the Chamberlain ones ...... http://www.toolstation.com/shop/Security/Garage+Door+Openers/d200/sd2901

This is a good price for a belt driven one as they are supposed to be quieter than the chain ones. Although it appears to be from an unknown brand and i'd question how long it will last \ availability of parts?

Very true and good point :thumbsup: - i've a chamberlain one and it's now 20 yrs old and apart from the remote packing up (Ebay kit with two remotes for £18 easily fixed) it's been fine.

Anyone know how easy this (or the Chamberlain chain one) are to fit...or if I'm rubbish at DIY (and I am) how long/much it's likely to cost to get a handyman to do install it?

Cheers

A fairly competent handyman should get it done in a day easy... I did mine in about 6 hours, its not mega complicated. Just takes a bit of time to read through the instructions and put the pieces together before installing. Check out screwfix you can download a pdf with the installation instructions. They have a help line which is really good and open on a Sunday too!

One thing I will say is make sure that your door runs smoothly, if it doesn't fix it first before tying to install. Also read the instructions before buying it to check that you have the space to fit it.

I had to go for the chain drive (was originally going for the belt) so that the length of the rail could be shortened as I have a loft hatch in the way. The chain was easy to shorten with a bike chain splitter from halfords. The chaimberlain support were very helpful and helped me decide that this was the way to go before buying.
