I hear alot of people talking up those ringtop ones.Just wondering people's thoughts on best electric fence posts?
I've hear good things about Strainrite, I guess 6mm x 1040mm for cattle. Not cheap though (over £5 each).
Open to suggestions!
Last ones I bought were super light duty short ones that were cheap, I'd buy them again actually as they are super lightweight.
All my answers feature the phrase "it depends" but the key difference here is we seldom use a quad or pickup to cart gear around, I like being able to grab a reel and upto 15 posts in my little hot hand and zoom off on the bike
When we used a quad more then the heavier ones seemed better, but I'd still use doubles at corners etc .
So there's a lot of variables, if I was just doing short subdivision fences across reasonably flat terrain then I'd have a different favourite than if we were on steep stuff - or if we were making perimeters etc out of temp fence
As you know I'm a huge fan of the kiwitech stuff and it just seems to make more sense - if you bust a clip, put on a new one. If you bust the spike off, put a new one on
Having seen a great pile of good pigtails slowly deteriorate over use, there seems to be a lot of waste after a while, when you get the insulation cut thru in one place but the rest of the unit is fine (and we never roll the wire up through them either, these cuts are all from animals busting thru the fences on dairy farms)
I do like the plastic treadin style, we have the red strainrites and the white gallagher ones, each have their pros and cons too
Not many gems in there but IF I was going to buy 100 then I'd not even look in a store and just ring kiwitech TBH
