Belt Drive = Lifetime Warranty
Similar to a camshaft belt, the Liftmaster 8550 utilizes steel mesh inside of a quiet and durable belt. This prevents you from getting the steel on steel grinding, while maintaining the durability and longevity of a chain.
Works When Power Goes Out!
The Liftmaster 8550 includes a battery backup system that kicks in when the power goes out! It uses a 12V DC battery that is always charged and ready, using a continuous trickle charge. This opener uses an audible signal to alert you when the battery is in use. Safety and security features still operate, ensuring protection during a power failure. Backup power also operates the opener for up to 40 full cycles in a 24-hour period.
3/4 hp DC Motor with Lifetime Warranty
This is what separates our belt drive from the rest. Self lubricating, steel enclosed gears, with self adjusting force and limits. You can see AND hear the difference! All other openers use exposed plastic gears that wear out every 4 to 8 years. This motor ensures a longer life and smoother operation than any other garage door opener.
Set it to Close Itself Behind You
This garage door opener features a brand new “TTC” (Time-to-Close) optional feature that can be adjusted to close your door automatically after a predetermined amount of time after each opening in order to ensure that you never forget to close the door behind you. The optional Timer-to-Close (TTC) feature has custom settings anywhere from 1-99 minutes after the door is operated each time. During operation with TTC turned on, the Alert-2-Close warning system provides UL325-compliant audible and visual warnings that the garage door is about to close, or remote closing features.
Time and Temperature Display
It features a wall console with a motion sensor that automatically turns the lights on for you, and an LED time and temperature display. The wall console also has as an adjustable light time delay. The Liftmaster 8550 is also equipped with an automatic maintenance alert system that scrolls any error codes on the LED display. It even has a lock feature that allows you to lock out anything that is programmed to the unit while you’re away on vacation, or in case of emergency.
Motion Sensing Lights
Two full sized light bulbs turn on automatically turn on when you walk into the garage, or operate your garage door.

Other Included Features
It includes rolling code security technology, infrared safety reversing sensors, and 2 multi-function motion-sensing remotes. The Liftmaster 8550 has auto force settings so that the garage door opener adapts to weather and changing environmental conditions, and has internal electronic limit settings. It has a one-piece solid steel T-rail with an automatic belt tensioner on trolley. The new energy-efficient operation consumes up to 75% less power in standby mode.
Other Garage Door Opener Models:
Jackshaft Opener: Model 8500
We also carry and install jackshaft garage door openers. The Liftmaster 8500 is an Elite series jackshaft operator. This opener is typically used only in special case scenarios. This opener mounts to the side of the garage door on the wall—in order to allow for higher lift and more clearance for special case garages. The side mount operation is unique and innovative. It allows for a very efficient and unique style of operation and installation, and uses the same technology and gadgets that are available with our other myQ compatible garage door openers. If you have any questions about our jackshaft opener, please call for more details.
Heavy Duty Belt Drive Opener: Model 8557
This model features an AC motor that is best fit for heavy lifting and over-sized garage doors such as wooden, cedar faced, or thick and heavy garage doors. This opener has a top of the line AC motor and Motor Vibration Isolation System. This opener uses all of the technology that the Liftmaster 8550 uses, except for the battery backup system.
Heavy Duty Chain Drive Opener: Model 8587
Our Heavy Duty chain drive garage door opener is for the heaviest, thickest wooden or wood faced steel garage doors that can be up to 3″ thick, 12 feet in height, and 20 feet in width! It has the durability and strength to get the job done, but lacks the luxurious features of the 8557. The 8557 Belt Drive is very similar, but every now and then a door comes along that is bulky enough to demand this opener.
Screw Drive Opener: Model 3240
This opener is typically used only in situations when the rail of a garage door opener needs to be cut down to accommodate a large beam, attic staircase, or other obstruction on the ceiling that prevents a standard 7′ or 8′ rail from being used. This is a premium screw-driven garage door opener, and is considered the best screw drive opener on the market. It is worth noting that screw drive openers work intermittently in the extreme cold and heat, require adjustment and lubrication at least twice a year, and contain several unreliable plastic components. This is why most of our customers decide to go with the new belt driven openers.
Chain Drive Opener: Model 3255
Our chain drive model is one of the best in the industry. However, we make sure to tell our customers that chain drive openers use plastic drive gears, are very noisy, and are classified in the contractor series. These attributes are the main reason that our customers have transitioned to the new technology of belt driven openers. The cost is nearly the same, and what you get for your money is nowhere near the same. If you are still interested in a chain or screw driven opener, feel free to call for more details on these openers!
