T Ground Rods
- Heights: 3 ft or 18 inches
- Diameter: 1/2"
How to Use
- Allow 3 ft of ground rod per joule of energy output. 18 inch ground rods are to be used with energizers with outputs of 0.5 joules or less.
- Space 18" rods at least 27" apart.
- Space 3 ft rods at least 4 ft apart.
- Space 6 ft rods at least 9 ft apart.
Green grass vs dry soil—in dry soils use ground rods long enough to reach moist soil.

As long as the ground is soft these rods work like a charm but the T handle weld is too weak to handle driving into the hard ground with a hammer. Needs to be redesigned as a "cross" where the handle(s) is only used for pulling out of the ground and a flattened head spike above the handle is used to hammer into the ground. The weld broke on half of my ground rods and the T fell off.

Exactly what we were looking for at a much better price than we had gotten in the past.
Nice for moving my portable poultry fence. Easy to push into soft ground, but I need a hammer for anything else. Still much more convenient than driving in a t-post every time.
I bough these grounding rods to use with portable electric netting fencing for my goats. I chose the T-bar style sepcifically because I'd be relocating them somewhat frequently - I live in an area where the ground is quite sandy and rocky. I had to use a mallet to drive them into the ground, which was kind of a pain, but pulling them out was pretty easy due to the T-setup!

So much easier when you are moving the fence every day!
