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.
To help simplify your purchasing decision, look to a Kube 400 Plug-in Kit.
- 3 stored joules
- 2.3 released joules
- 1.9 output joules in moist soils
- 1.24 output joules in dry soils
- Requires 6 ft. of ground rod in the ground
- 4.5 watts drawn per hour
- 48 pulses per minute
- 6' cord
- 2 prong plug
- Simple. No fancy "bells and whistles"
- Modular. Very easy to repair
Should power... *
- 3 miles of 3 strand cattle fence.
- 1 mile of 5-7 strand sheep fence.
- 15 rolls of 164' sheep/goat nets or 7 rolls of 164' PoultryNet.
* All distances are dependent on amount of grass/weed load on the fence.
- 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.
- To check—first turn off the energizer.
- Then disconnect the wires going to the fence and ground rod system.
- Turn the energizer back on.
- Then measure the voltage on the energizer between the 2 terminals (fence and earth) with a digital fence voltmeter or other fence testing device. Touch one end to “–” earth terminal and the other end to “+” fence terminal.
- If the tester reads under 3000V, the energizer (or possibly the battery if it’s a battery/solar energizer) is the problem.
- If the tester reads more than 3000V, the energizer is working properly and the fence is the problem.
- Check that the 110V outlet is "live" by using a plug-in drill or test light.
- If the test light works and the energizer does not, call Premier.
- Walk or drive along the fence looking for any point in which the energized wires touch the soil, a steel post or a steel wire. On high-tensile wire fences, check the wires at braces to see if they are touching a hot wire. On netting, look for a hot wire touching the metal stake at the bottom of the plastic posts. Also look for damaged insulators.
- If the fence can be separated into several parts (by switches or by disconnecting parts of it), you can locate the problem by beginning at the far end and then progressively turn off or disconnect the sections of fence. When the voltage on the remaining fence rises sharply, you've located the section(s) that's causing the problems.
- The alternative to (2.) is to begin at the fencer and progressively turn on sections of the fence. When the voltage suddenly drops you can assume that the problem is in the section most recently connected.
Most energizers put out between 5000V and 8000V when there is no load (i.e. no fence hooked up).
If the energizer is faulty and it is a 110V plug-in unit…
If the fence is at fault, then you must find the fault(s) and fix them.
If you have a fault finder you can simply touch the fence with the fault finder at various points along the electric fence(s). The fault finder will tell you at each point which direction to go in to locate the problem. Move in that direction testing as you go and you will arrive at the problem.
If you lack a fault finder…

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.

The Kube 4000 is a great energizer. We have had a lot of problems with raccoons destroying my wife's bird feeders in the maple tree in the front yard. Not to mention chipmunks making a mess. We had a fence around the tree with a cheap 2 mile energizer we bought at Tractor Supply. That energizer was a joke. I did some research and learned of Premier1Supplies. We replaced that energizer with the Kube 4000 and wow what a difference! My wife is now extremely happy as now not even the chipmunks have gone up the tree and not one birdfeeder has been damaged since it's installation. Happy wife, happy life! Thank you Premier1Supplies!!!

Easy, intuitive setup. Brilliantly clear instructions with diagrams and pictures. Unparalleled performance on 3 miles of three strand for no better price.
