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

I am new to raising goats and started just 2 years ago. A neighbor told me when the thought of raising goats was still in discussion stage, that if you can pour water through a fence, a goat can get out of it. That comment led to more studies and my introduction to Premier 1. I have a Kube, wide-impedance, electric fence charger and my goats do not get out or rub on fences. Unless, I forget to latch the gate. I tell anyone that will listen about all the things I have learned from the staff at Premier 1. Because you see, their products are only part of what make them a great company, the other part is the wisdom they so freely share. Thanks Premier 1.

Some years ago I bought a Hotshock 600 to replace a 20+ year old Premier energizer(925 I think). The Hotshock 600 wasn't quite enough so I bought the Kube 4000 planning to split our fences. It turns out the Kube unit is plenty by itself. Day in day out it is a stronger energizer than the Hotshock 600 and has got to be the best value in an energizer anywhere.

As soon as we plugged the Kube in, the voltage on the Premier 1 fence was at 6000! Now I am confident my hens will not have any predators trying to get into their safe zone. Had used other named product before, but I was not as confident as this one. I now feel comfortable moving them out into the cow pasture to rotate around in their movable coop after the cows have been there. Will be buying 2 more in the next few months!!!

In fairness to the product, there is no 'problem' with it. HOWEVER, I do wish that someone had told me how many extras I would be needing to purchase/do in order to get my fence working at a voltage to keep coyotes out do to Arizona conditions. I am giving it one star for the extra time and money I spent (am spending daily in water)to make it work. The dryness of Arizona soil meant running more grounding wires, live strands, and a soaker hose around the hole perimeter in order to get the voltage I needed to ward off coyotes. Aside from the original purchase of the fence and energizer, I probably spent an additional $250 to make the fence work properly. Oh, and there was NO WAY I was sinking a grounding rod into my ground 3 feet down. I ended up painstakingly pounding two 1.5' rods in and running drip lines to them. Lots of more water usage to make this product work than I would have thought. This all said, however, it does seem to be putting enough juice out now. So again, the low star rating is due to my location/dry soil issues.

We have very dry rocky conditions with dry snow. Since the KUBE 4000 came to our aid there has been a lot less worry about bucks crossing into the doe pens.
