A new energiser from Datamars Speedrite range claims to be the first “smart” electric fence unit, alongside an output of 46 joules.
Having established a reputation over the last ten years, the Taragate geared reel system has proved ideal for setting up portable fences with speed and efficiency.
In readiness for the 2020 season, several changes to the design will make the unit even more user-friendly.
The patented wire guide attached to the front of the reel for extra strength and stability, has seen the fixings beefed up for the latest version, while the unique metal spool lock will not fall forward when reeling out the fence, giving the user total control. The extra-long crank handle and smooth gearbox delivers trouble-free winding when dismantling breaks and the insulated double hook system offers an additional, smaller hook to snap securely on to the fence wires.
The tape and poly-wire on the 2020 reels have been upgraded from the typical five strand, light stainless-steel wires to 6 strand heavy-duty wires for higher conductivity, particularly useful when using high powered energisers over longer runs. Meanwhile, a flatter profiled carriage bolt is used to secure the carrying handle to the frame, providing more clear space for the poly-wire on the spool.
