A local business carries parts for Zarebas so that is what I have. I bought some really cheap on Ebay in not working condition. Usually less than $40 in parts fixed them, so I probably have about ten of them and parts laid up to repair if needed. Currently have two 100 mile and a 50 mile in service. The cattle do respect them as do I also.

Cyclops
Have a 110 volt at one place for 8 years, never had it off the wall. 10 joule, fences all over 160 acres, my cow leaser said it was 10 to 11,000 volts everywhere.
8 joule, battery operated, with 60 watt solar panel, at summer pastures,
Fuses are a problem, seems like I go thru a lot of them.
Sent to be fixed twice, in 10ish years. 25 dollars both times so not much wrong. Always got it back in a week.
Question, should I bring in the solar panels in the winter if not using them. Will it extend their life.

I think they are the best chargers made . I have a couple of them


Thanks M-5


I own another one as of today. I had a Parmak on a short run of temp fence and yesterday morning calves were out . It was a good one but it is completely fried. went to my back up parmak -it wouldnt work. Drug out one of the old internationals it would read 8 volts but not pop , finally just moved cyclops over to that fence and bought a new cyclops this morning took parmak to jeffers for repair and bought a new popper for the international super 98 . while searching online I found that ZAREBA makes a control module that fits the old international super 100 I have . so hopefully all my backups will be working soon ,

My only question, does it have a remote to shut the fence off like my speed rite? I can’t live without the handiness of being able to shut the fence off and on from anywhere?
