I've burned out google and the other ones trying to find an electric powered patio umbrella. They have some in the UK and Belgium but shipping would be a killer and wrong power source (220). It could be either 120AC or 12DC. Home Depot.com has a spring loaded assist one but there's too many complaints they don't work well. Situation is my wife can't squeeze anything or operate a crank with her hands, bad nerve problem. If I put it up, I have to stay around if it gets windy or heavy rain. Does anyone have any ideas. Thanks. We don't want one of those wall mounted awnings either.

Is this a portable umbrella, or permanent mount at home?

It would be on the deck at home, more or less permanent at home.

This looks interesting: Umbrella Motor.

Hmm, auto link doesn't work so here's the actual URL:

https://www.smarthome-products.com/p-282-154rc-umbrella-motor-with-touch-switch-and-remote-control.aspx

You'll have to do a Copy and Paste.

35 miles from Normal, IL. As close to normal as I'll ever be.

Ow, nice find but at $855US that's a bit over the top.

Nice find, thanks. I'll have to look into that one for sure.

Ouch! Yes, $855 is nuts. I just saw $143 before, which is the monthly payment plan, I guess.

Most of the ones I could find were over $1000.

The link does not work because you put "This looks interesting:" in front of the URL.
