Purchased this unit based on excellent reviews. Replacing a competitor unit because this unit appears to produce a stronger jolt and less grounding issues. Will be anxious to see the unit in action once the snow melts.
"Best Solar Charger"
Buying another. The fancy names & flashy packages do not hold up as well as this tried and true unit. Best shock for your buck.
We’ve been using these for years, work well and are well made. Definitely recommend them over other solar chargers.
I am getting another one for another field that has had 3 other brands! The first and oldest is this Parmak which is 9 yeas old and never once did not work. It serves a 14 acre, 4 wire fence and dividing fences perfectly. Love the front on -off switches and indicators on the front. IF it is not working then there is something wrong with the fence not the charger!
I have been using these chargers for 18 years and i have never had any issues with them. As with anything using a battery you will need to replace the battery every few years and as with anything that runs 24/7 you will need to replace the unit on occasion. I am on my 2nd unit and have replaced the battery once. As with any electrical item if you have anything that touches the wire and then touches the ground it will ground it out. The closer it is to the unit the more it will ground out the farther away the less effect it will have on the unit. I would say that if it doesn't work right for you go back over all your installation steps and check them again i am positive that it will be as they say operator error as i am a woman alone and have never had any issues with any of the units that i have installed.
This electric fence box is not very good .we have 3 ground rods like it recommends and it still want keep cows in .It doesnt take much to ground it out. All it will put out is 4500 volts on 1/4 mile of fence it sucks in my opinion.
- - - - - - - - - - - - This is the first solar fencer I have purchased and what a SUPER BUY! It's easy to install and works like a champ. It's easy to see if there is a problem with the gauge on the front. If I ever need another, it will be a Parmak that I buy!
I own about a dozen of these, which I have been using for roughly 15 years to charge my electric bear fences, which keep bears out of my honey bee apiaries. The fencers are such a simple, sturdy design that there's very little that can go wrong. If I have a problem, I send the unit to McCrory. Their service and customer support is excellent. I wouldn't use any other fencer to protect my bees.
We are on our second of these chargers in 4 years and have had to purchase a replacement battery for each. So I'm $419.99 into these solar chargers and batteries. Not a great shelf life. Have also suboptimal performance when it is particularly dry or overcast for an extended period of time. A small tree branch lying against the fence is enough to ground it out. So, kinda of pricey in my book for the performance.
"The best solar charger!!"
We bought this charger 10 years ago and just replaced the battery last month. It shocks strongly despite weeds growing up around our 1 1/2 polytape- three strand fence. It has survived numerous tropical storms & a Cat 3 hurricane, not to mention the tropical heat & humidity of south FL summers. You will not be disapointed with this charger!!
"Solar Fence Charger A+"
I use this fence charger to power my electrobraid fence. I have 2 electrified strands (out of 3). It has been installed about 8 months, and has worked perfect! Only doesnt charge when covered in snow but I cant blame it since we've gotten 120 inches with 2 months left to go. No problems even with sub zero temps. Very happy with the charger.
