Winters in New York City can get tough. And to open a commercial rolling gate which is not motorized using the chain system can be a nightmare. Winter months are the months we get the most calls for gate motor (operator) installation and repairs. And the reason is that using the chain to open or close the gate can become impossible. But many people assume that it is better to install the gate, and in the future to add the electric motor. In some cases they might be right, but it is not always like that.

Before we start, one thing need to be clear: Not every motor can be repaired, and even if it can be repaired, it is not always worth it. Sometime replacing the unit and install a new motor will be the best decision. People tend to assume that repairing is always the cheapest option.
