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||✔||✔|
|(1) Ground Rod (galvanized)||6 ft|
|(1) Ground Rod Clamp||✔|
|MaxiShock Insulated Cable||100' roll|
- 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

Works very well — we’ve had this for several years and needed to replace the cord that plugs into the outlet. I didn’t see it on the website, but if you call Premier 1 they do have the replacement cords for about $18. It looks very easy to repair.

Great fence energizer and super fast shipping. Highly recommend!

Your documentation for installation of the electric fence and Kube energizer is grossly deficient. All parts should be labeled and identified; set up of the Kube should be documented and videoed. I can figure out how to do set up and deployment. BUT, I SHOULD NOT HAVE TO HESITATE ONE MOMENT wondering what this or that part is for, or that there are not included parts, like alligator clips for the energizer wire. I do not have time to waste scratching my head. I would not recommend Premier 1 for the electric fence.

I was worried about getting a good ground with our dry soil but tried the Kube with the existing ground rod from my old fence charger. I was also worried about using a pulsing charger for my mules and horses in winter as their coats are very thick, so I chose an energizer with a stronger charge. It has worked perfectly and the animals are very respectful of it.

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.
