Fence charger

Postby redandblack » Tue May 30, 2017 11:53 am

Wanted to hear some people's opinion on fence chargers. 40 acres single strand to keep cows off fence, also will be running 3-strand of 14 gauge galvanized wire to wean calves on 20 acres. Want something with bite that will withstand a little bit of weed/grass contact. Not looking for cheap, want what works and will last. I know opinions will vary. Also it will be a 110v plugged in inside barn. Thanks for the help

I like my Kencove brand with the remote so I can turn it on and off from anywhere along the fence.

Pretty much any suggested and including Gallagher. Just stay clear of the discount makes. You may get lucky and get a good one but the odds are just as good that you will get crap

Check into what they actually give the charge at the end of the fence. Speedright for one will guarantee so many volts at 10 miles on a 10 mile charger. Some of the others will guarantee 1 volt at the same distance.

My thoughts only, don't bet the farm on them. KT

Some people know people, who know people, who aren't very nice people and you could get a visit from them someday. So be good people.
