Solar energizer

Gallagher's S50 solar energizer producers 0.5 Joules capable of powering up to 30 acres, or five miles, of multi-wire fence. The self-contained design is portable, has a built-in carry handle and easily mounts on walls, wooden posts, T-posts or placed on the ground. A large rotary switch makes the S50 easy to operate and an LED flashes to show the unit is functioning correctly. An automatic night mode monitors light levels and lengthens the pulse rate to save power when animals become less active.

Auger bucket

Danuser Industrial Group's auger bucket mixes, transports and dispenses concrete (up to 1-in. slump), sand, washed gravel (¾-in. max), asphalt, wildlife feed and agricultural grain. It features a ½-yard capacity of premix concrete and up to ¾-yard with an optional hopper extension. The auger can discharge a ½-yard in 50 seconds, and the quick-attach frame allows for right- or left-handed discharge.

Fence tester

Eight Light Fence Tester model 3360, from Dare Products, accurately measures fence voltage up to 7,000 volts. It is designed for neat storage at an affordable price.

Fence mender

Gripple Plus, from Gripple Inc., is designed to connect wires on all types of fence without the bending or twisting of wires. It splices, tightens and eliminates the need for crimps, ratchet strainers, come-alongs and stretchers.

Wire winder mount

A new universal mount for wire winders from Pro-Tatch is applicable on most anything with hydraulics, including loader buckets, pickup boxes and other equipment.

Post-driver trailers

Shaver Manufacturing introduces its TU series of trailers for mounting post drivers that allows operators to transport posts with the drivers. The unit's positioner turntable gives an operator better accuracy and control by tilting the driver forward and sideways, and swiveling it up to 155°. The standard TU-13 trailer features a self-contained, 13-hp Honda engine with electric start. The TU-13T unit hooks up to a tractor and is powered by the tractor's hydraulic system.


Measuring 4.5mm in diameter, IntelliRope PE 4.5 from Premier is black and white to provide extra visibility and is an excellent “starter” material for receiving paddocks. Its “super conductor” design allows electrical pulses to travel further while being less affected by vegetation on the fenceline.

T-post insulator

Premier's Heavy Duty Offset T-Post Insulator features a pin-lock design that holds conductors 9 in. away from the post. The wrap-around base provides strength and support while the internal X design resists up, down and side-to-side strain.

Driveway alert probe

Gate Bird's Solar 9V Driveway Alert Probe is wireless and capable of transmitting radio calls up to a ½-mile or more, depending on terrain. The 20-in. probe is buried slightly underground parallel to the driveway while an 80-ft. cable can be coiled to fit the application. The electronic sensing board and radio transmitter is housed in a small square 4.7-in., all-weather enclosure, which can be placed as close to the probe as convenient. A 9-volt Lithium battery version is also available that will perform without the solar charger.

Gate lock

Lokk-Latch® Deluxe is an improved version of the Lokk-Latch Pro® but costs 10% less. One latch fits vinyl, metal or wood gates and features rekeyable, six-pin security locks, adjustability for easy installation. An External Access Kit is available. The Deluxe has been cycle-tested to over 200,000 closures.

Field fence

Trusted by one of the largest cattle operations in the world, Red Brand's King Ranch Fence provides cattle with a full 49 in. of protection. It features variable vertical spacing and 12-in. horizontal spacing. Class 3 galvanized coating provides extra durability and the exclusive Red Brand Square Deal® Knot, designed to eliminate sagging and keep fence taut and upright.


The Speedrite SG50 Energizer is ideal for small, temporary electric fencing, or strip-grazing applications. It runs off 2 D-cell batteries and can power up to 1 acre of fence for more than one month. The extremely portable SG50 has a unique stay-on fence wire clip, on/off switch and weatherproof construction.

Post driver attachment

The Pilot Auger, distributed by Kencove Farm Fence and Shaver Manufacturing, digs pilot holes that make driving posts quicker and easier and reduces driver wear. The auger can attach to and be powered by Shaver's HD-10 or HD-12 post-driver unit. It can also be installed on Shaver's skid-steer loader-, tractor- or trailer-mounted units.

Fence post clips

The new Step-In post from Geotek Inc. features its new SmartClip. The SmartClip has a fast and easy-to-use durable design and holds up to 2-in. tape, braided rope, polywire or high-tensile wire. The Step-In post is lightweight and strong.

Wood posts, steel rails

Cameo Fencing Inc. introduces a combination fencing product comprised of treated wood posts and steel pipe rails. The rails are the same pipe-in-pipe “swedge” rail connection that's part of the company's all-steel pipe fencing. The rail-in-rail design can be constructed as a single continuous rail to whatever length is needed.

Energizer for horses

Power Wizard's line of electric fence energizers for horse owners shocks through weeds and brush. Its HorseSafe 15 is a 110-volt, 1.5-Joule plug-in energizer recommended for corrals and pastures up to 15 acres. HorseSafe 30, also 110 volts, supplies 3 Joules of energy and is for pastures up to 30 acres. HorseSafe 10B is a 1-Joule, 6- or 12-volt battery-operated energizer for corrals and pastures up to 10 acres.

Slab Blaster and Postmaster

The Slab Blaster, from Danuser Industrial Group, has a 400-lb. hammer to break concrete up to 9-in. thick. Additional weight is available to bolster total hammer weight to 700 lbs.

The Postmaster is capable of driving 14-ft.-tall wood or steel posts varying from 3- to 8-in. in diameter. The 275-lb. hammer can drive 60 posts/hour with hydraulic requirements of at least 12 gpm and 2,000 psi.


Twin Mountain Fence has added the TE50 and TB50 to its Titan electric fence energizer line. Both are equipped with digital control, built-in lightning protection, weather resistance, “Power on Demand” and comes with a three-year guarantee, which includes lightning.

The units are capable of powering a single-wire fence for 5 miles, or a three-wire fence for 1.66 miles. A fence lamp flashes at regular intervals mirroring the electrical pulse on the fence line. The Titan pulse is designed for performance on fences with abundant weed growth and can shock through wet fenceline growth.

The Power Wizard PW18000 Electric Fence Energizer provides safe, electric pulses to fencing that will not harm cattle. Using ultra-low impedance technology, the unit delivers an effective shock, even through overgrown weeds and brush.
