    It was got to keep wild stock out, not to keep stock in. It was needed, you'd have to have seen what this guy was at with his stock to understand. It still, to this day, amazes me to see what he was able to get away with.

    And the department of agriculture wernt one bit interested in him as he hadn't drawn any subs, no SFP, and as his animals wernt technically ill from mistreatment, they couldnt do anything. He bought a bull off a man who was getting rid of him due to the beast turning wicked, it ran my father when it took a liking to our cows, lucky escape, the HSA didn't do anything when I reported it either. Ah, I could rant on for hours about him, but just shows ya, is my SFP worth the bother?

    A meter box is what you need.

    Any electrical wholesalers will have them.

    Be aware though, fencers can go walkabout, mine was stolen out of an unlocked shed a couple of years ago.

    no , not deep enough , too big aswell , looking for something only slightly larger than the fencer itself with a see through plastic front door

    Can you use the same earth for 2 fencers?
    5 good earth rods, hoping not to have to put in a separate earth for the second fence.

    I have done it, can't see any reason not to as long as it isn't shared with an ESB earth.

    I'd say you could. Whether the 2 dancers would be happy to share one rod I mean earth is another question :scratchhead:
