Review of Liftmaster Belt Drive 81550: A Fair Look by Good Guys Garage Door Repair OKC

Good Guys Garage Door Repair OKC has served the Oklahoma City area for many years. We’ve seen garage door openers come and go, and we’ve got our hands on the latest offering from Liftmaster, the Belt Drive 81550. While we’re here to provide an honest look, we’ll never sugarcoat our opinions. Below, you’ll find an unbiased Liftmaster Belt Drive 81550 assessment.

Features of the Liftmaster Belt Drive 81550

1. Quiet Operation

One of the critical features of the Liftmaster 81550 is its belt drive system. Unlike chain drives that can be noisy, this belt drive promises a quieter operation. But is it the softest we’ve ever seen? Not exactly. Sure, it’s quieter than chain drives, but it may not meet everyone’s expectations.

2. Built-In Wi-Fi

The 81550’s built-in Wi-Fi lets homeowners control their garage doors from their smartphones. A novel feature, yes, but setting it up can be a bit of a hassle, especially for those not particularly tech-savvy.

3. Safety Sensors

Liftmaster has included safety sensors to stop the door if anything is in its path. While functional, we’ve seen more responsive sensors in other models.

Installation Experience

We’ve installed many of these 81550 units, and the installation process is straightforward for professionals like us. DIYers might find the instructions lacking, so it might not be the friendliest option for home installation.


The Liftmaster 81550 does its job, but it’s not a standout. It operates the door and has some additional features, but we have noticed that it can be slightly sluggish compared to other models in the same price range.


Priced in the mid-range, the Liftmaster 81550 isn’t the most affordable nor the most expensive. You could say it’s reasonably priced for what it offers, but there might be better value.


The Liftmaster Belt Drive 81550 isn’t a bad garage door opener, but it’s not remarkable. It has some excellent features like quiet operation and built-in Wi-Fi, but it falls a bit short in some areas.

This might be it if you’re looking for a decent, middle-of-the-road option. However, if you’re seeking something that stands out regarding performance or innovation, you might want to explore other options.

At Good Guys Garage Door Repair OKC, we value our clients and strive to provide honest feedback. Please get in touch with us if you need assistance choosing a suitable garage door opener for your home or require professional installation or repair services. We’re here to help!
