The Craftsman garage door opener model 53993 is the 1/2 HP screw drive garage door opener from Sears. Quieter than a chain drive with a maintenance free screw drive mechanism, this model will easily open most single or double car garage doors. For the heaviest carriage house doors or solid wooden garage doors, a more powerful chain drive model or belt drive garage door opener should also be considered.
