Electric Fence

Bought some fencing goodies and asked the fella for some handles, thinking I'd be getting the plastic ones that didn't carry a current. But the spring loaded type have arrived, not a bother, just wondering is baler twine a good enough insulator to go from the polly wire to the handle?

Anyone a recommendation for a cheap battery or solar fencer. The father in law has a garden and has me plagued to stick something on it, there's not an acre in it and its beside the town so possibility of it being theived, hence looking for very cheap and cheerful

Would you not be able to put in a shed in the garden?

Unfortunately not quite that simple, its away from his house, there is a small shed but not exactly bomb proof and there have been undesirables in before. We have a couple of good fencers here that I could chance but if I picked something up for 100 quid or so it would do this and maybe another field we have stocked occasionally

Just google solar shockers.
There's a few cheap ones about.
They look suspiciously like the very expensive ones too!!

What is there in terms of fencing now?
Would some poles and barbed wire actually be a safer bet if theft is inevitable?

My main concern with solars is some bugger stealing them,a lad I know made a small trailer with his solar panel mounted high up,also had a remote switch so the whole trailer was energised with the unit locked in a cabinet.

It’s something I want to make but for now I love the fencer to a gatepost or such.

ShockRite energisers are keenly priced energisers made in Ireland.

Great reviews online, and there are battery and solars available (free delivery too)
