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

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

This Kube was purchased to replace a Kube that I had for many years and quit working. We have sandy soil and the wide impedance Kube works super well in dry summer conditions compared to low impedance models. It also puts out a reliable charge when we are 20 below zero temps. Great product.

The Kube 4000 worked just fine last summer. This spring, on setup, it was not functioning. After several very helpful phone conversations with people at Premier 1, the decision was to purchase a new unit and ship the faulty one to Premier 1 for evaluation as to repair or replacement. After only a few days Premier 1 notified me of a refund of the price of the new unit, which is performing very well at this time. I want to compliment not only this product but especially the exemplary assistance and service from the staff of Premier 1.

We're small hobby farmers in Florida and have been using Kubes for about three years and have 4 currently. They’ve continued working perfectly despite being outside in the elements, including being halfway submerged for hours after our frequent thunderstorms.
We’ve never had any losses to predators while using a Kube - and once it killed an armadillo that got tangled in the netting!

I was using a low impedance fencer on my electric fence for my horses. It worked fine this summer but once we got snow and a great deal of ice this winter , it was sending a very weak pulse that had no shock value. We have sandy soil also. In researching the problem, I came across information that convinced me I needed a wide impedance energizer. The only one I could find was the Kube 4000 Energizer online. It had good reviews so I decided to give it a try. I am now receiving a 5500 v plus pulse through my fence. I am well satisfied with this energizer.
