Warnings & Disclaimers

Do not use portable electric fencing as only means of animal restraint. If used as only means of restraint without permanent fencing, animals may escape with the risk of serious injury to animals or people.

Sandy, Rocky or Clay Soil Grounds

Poor Ground Will Damage Your Fencer And Will Decrease Shock On Fence Line.

Your low impedance fencer requires (MUST HAVE) a minimum of three (3) six to eight foot ground rods, ten feet apart driven eight feet deep into permanently moist earth. Sandy, rocky or clay soil conditions cause a poor ground. In these areas additional ground rods may be needed to adequately ground the fence. (In some locations as many as 5 to 6 ground rods may be needed).

If you cannot drive a ground rod 6-8 feet deep due to rock, etc.

In these areas it is recommended that ground rods be driven at a 45 degrees angle as deep as possible. Drive 4 or 5 ground rods in a circle like the spokes of a wheel. Connect all ground rods together with ground wire and then back to the ground terminal of fence charger.

If you DO NOT properly ground your fence, your fence charger will be damaged and you will have decreased or no shock at all on fence line.
