GreenRiggers electric fence outriggers are designed and manufactured in New Zealand.

Specially designed for stock retention and fence protection, the GreenRiggers, also available in Black, require no tools to fit, don’t short back to the fence, don’t have any sharp extremities that might cause injury and also incorporate a clever in-built “safety pop-off” system.

Designed to work best on high tensile 2.5mm fences and netting, in the dairy, equine, sheep, goat, pig, and dog sectors, the construction sees the use of high UV resistant polymers making then well suited to NZ conditions. 

A recent addition to the product range is a stainless-steel rail attachment option that attaches the GreenRiggers to Post & Rail fences, which is proving to be well received in the equine sector.
