This electric fence kit is suited to anybody who wants to protect their permanent wooden fencing.
Typically it is run along the top rail of the fence and stops livestock from chewing the fencing or using it as a scratching post.
In wet conditions horses or cattle can quickly start to push fencing so it leans outwards.
If you are having new fencing installed it is well worth putting this kit on the fence straight away so the livestock learns to respect the new fence from day one.
Normally we recommend putting one insulator at each upright post. If the fencing is very straight and flat this can be extended to every other post.
Extra rope and insulators can be easily added, for longer fences.
Kit comes with:
1 x Hercules 240v energiser
1 x earth stake
1 x 10 metre lead out wire
6 x 10 Distance ring insulators
200 metre roll of Green rope (with 6 x stainless steel conductors of 0.2mm)
1 x Gate handle insulators
1 x Gate handle
1 x warning sign
1 x multilevel tester
We include Gate handles and Gate handle insulators in the kit so you can pass in front of a gateway. If your fencing does not have a entrance way, these will not be required.
As this is a mains powered kit we have included 10 metres of lead out wire to carry the power from the energiser to the nearest part of the fence. If a longer length is required please contact us so we can alter the kit.
Extra rope and insulators can be easily added to extend protection as required.
