ANSWER: I use mine with a 16 ft / 7ft roll door spring supported.<br /><br />Are you sure about the 12A statement? That would indicate that your old drive is about 2 hp. If that is true than the 3/4 hp Sommer is not for you. If your door is not spring supported, then you might need a high power drive. by Werner K a
