Interesting concept...

Personally I like the "Jack Shaft" style openers much better than traditional openers. You don't have to give up the clearance/overhead space. Especially if you can install the garage door tracks to take the door up to the ceiling when opened..

I have many projects at home well ahead of garage door openers and a potential lift but moving the tracks closer to the ceiling is on the list.

Never really seen a good enough picture showing what I want until now.

I use the liftmaster Jack shaft style too to keep the door close to the ceiling for the lift...

I need someone to run wiring to my garage ceiling so I can get some door openers. I really want the jackshaft style because there are asbestos wrapped pipes that will interfere with the rod for a conventional one.

Liftmaster. They are cable/drum style. That's what's on my barn. There's a spring loaded bar that runs across the header and cables that go to the bottom of the door. As the motor winds the cable on the drums the door goes up. No big jackshaft or chain.

Thanks for the awesome post, you can get them for $340 on Amazon. You just helped me out tremendously with my garage plans. I will be starting a Garage Renovation thread here soon (garage journal is too yuppie for me).

I have this opener (x3):
https://www.liftmaster.com/For-Busin.../Elite/model-H

Guess i was confused by what they mean by a jackshaft, cz I have that. I guess that I was thinking screw shaft or chain that drives a trolley hook.
The jackshaft is spring loaded to take some of the weight of the door so the motor doesn't really dead-lift the thing. Also, you don't manually lift up on the door if the power goes out. There is a chain hanging on the side of the lift assembly that you use to turn the shaft.
These are not really DIY install. I had the local lift door guys come out and do it.
