That would indeed be a really big plus. It may be I should have thought this through longer before I bought the door opener but......I am going to continue on. I knew there were a lot of threads out there from guys who had done it but the door opener was there, handy, and cheap. Also it should require no machine work since it already has a sprocket on the end of the shaft.

Thanks for the input. There may be other guys who read this thread that will want to go the winch route. It does make sense.
