T Ground Rods
This ground rod features a unique T handle, which makes it easier to grip when removing from soil.
The ground system is an essential component of any electric fence. Ground rods guide the pulse from the soil, back into the energizer. The larger the pulse or higher the resistance of the soil (because it’s dry, sandy, or rocky), the more ground rods that are needed to collect the electrons from the soil.
- Heights: 3 ft or 18"
- Diameter: 1/2"
How to Use
- Allow 3 ft of ground rod per joule of energy output. 18" 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 5 ft apart
- Space 6 ft rods at least 10 ft apart
- In dry/sandy soil—use ground rods long enough to reach moist soil

Very well made - good packaging. Expensive shipping charge.

We tried using a steel rebar rod for a grounding rod with our Premier 1 goat fencing and the charge the fence was getting was rather low and spotty. Not to mention the rod was hard to get out of the ground when we wanted to move it. We purchased this and it worked really well. We aren’t losing any voltage anywhere along the fence and it’s hitting pretty hard. Plus it’s super easy to get out of the ground since it has a handle.

A much better ground than the old galvanized pipes we used before. Our ground is seriously rocky. If we need to hammer them in, we put a wood block all the way across the top evenly, then hammer away. Still sometimes need to chain to the post puller to get them out. 'T' makes a good hold.

These grounding rods are superior to the straight rods. Handles make removing the rods easy without the use of a jack or a tractor.

Makes portability of the electric fencing really nice.
