Electric Fence Testers
We highly recommend buying an electric fence tester. Without a tester it is hard to tell if the fence is working unless you touch the fence, which can be dangerous and is not recommended. These testers also make excellent troubleshooting tools when diagnosing electric fence issues.
To build an electric fence you will need a charger along with posts, insulators, fence wire or poly fencing and a grounding system. For basic information on electric fences see our Electric Fence Knowledge Base. You may also want to include a gate handle, lightning protection and a cutout switch. We carry all these items except posts, see our Electric Fence page and Electric Fence Supplies pages for our current product line.
