Kube 4000 Energizer
The Kube 4000 plug-in unit is economic and wide-impedance. That means it produces unusually high pulse outputs in fences over dry soils. It performs better than standard low-impedance units during dry/snowy seasons and on fences for deer, poultry and goats.
It's proven, over the past 5 years, to offer reliability and excellent value.
|Energizer Only||Plug-in Kit*|
|Kube 4000 Energizer||✔||✔|

- 3 miles of 3 strand cattle fence
- 1 mile of 5-7 strand sheep fence
- 15 rolls of 164' sheep/goat nets and 7 rolls of 164' PoultryNet
- Requires a grounding system. Inadequate grounding is the most common failure in an electric fence system. We recommend 6 ft. of grounding for this energizer, included in the kit.
- 2.30 released joules
- 2.30 joules in moist soils
- 1.24 joules in dry soils
- Pulses per minute: 40
- 110V draw is 4.5 watt per hour
- Impedance type: wide – pulse type
- Input: AC only
- 6' cord
- Modular. Very easy to repair.
- Connect insulated cable (stripped back 1 - 2" on ends) to the fence terminal on energizer, run the cable to the fence line and connect.
- Then run a second length of cable from the ground terminal (with ends stripped again) on the energizer to the ground rod.
- Secure to ground rod with a clamp.
- Plug the energizer directly into an outlet and test fence. Do not use an extension cord as it may cause a decrease in voltage and expose the unit to the elements.
- Unit indicator light should flash and a tic-tac sound will be heard. If the indicator light doesn't flash, then the unit should be serviced.
To Reduce Risk & Liability
- Never place your head or upper spine near an electrified wire. Accidental head or neck contact can occur when pushing a voltage probe into the soil. Be careful when doing so to avoid head-to-wire contact!
- Never attempt to step over or climb through an energized fence of any kind.
- Never encourage anyone to touch an electric fence.
Start by measuring the voltage at the end of the fence line. If the voltage is below 3000V, follow these steps to determine if the problem is with the fence, or the energizer.
Test the energizer first!
- Turn off the energizer.
- Disconnect the wires going to the fence and ground stake/rod.
- Turn the energizer back on.
- Measure the voltage on the energizer between the two terminals (positive and negative) with a digital voltmeter or other high-voltage tester. Touch one end to “-“ (earth terminal) and the other end to “+” (fence terminal). The reading tells you how well the energizer is working without any other variables.
- If the tester reads below 5000V, then the energizer (or possibly the battery) is the problem. If the voltage is above 5000V, then the trouble lies with your fence.
If the fence is at fault:
- Conductors touching another wire, steel post or the soil
- Broken or damaged insulators

We bought this to protect our garden from squirrels and rabbits. The squirrels are the worst! Go figure. We installed it and it works great. The only problem is the further you get from the source, the less you get the "zap". We figure it is because we are using chicken wire. We are considering changing the actual fencing, or maybe getting a stronger charger. For now, it is working. We are very happy with it.

Protects us well from the coyotes—so far...

Shows hotter on my tester here in the Florida sand. The horses and donkeys respect it but the dogs still run through to the other side. I was trying to stop the dogs at the fence.

These are wonderful energizers. Started with one about 10 or 15 years ago, it's still going strong and we've added several more. Can't tell you the voltage we get or the length of fence it will cover because we use them around pastures where we have goats and cattle that are annoyed to be in a dry lot. I can tell you the critters can hear the charge in the wire and they respect it. If you happen to bump the wire you will respect it too. We have one mounted to a fence post with a bucket over it, seems to work well. I understand they are very easily repaired (in most cases) at Premier. We have used a lot of different brands over the years including the Horizonts and we are sold on these.

My only complaint is the power cord could be a bit longer. 6 to 8 inches more would have really simplified set up. We have a box outside of the barn to decrease fire risk and the cord passes into barn to reach an outlet. We had to move the box so close to the barn that it still poses fire risk.
