About product

Having a suitable earthing stake is essential to your electric fencing system. This 1m long galv'd angle iron comes c/w a nut and bolt to allow an easy connection also includes clamp.


The earth stake enables the full circuit to be made when the animal touches it.


Galvanised finish so it won't rust underground reducing the effectiveness of your fence.


Drive the earth stake into the ground as far as you can, ideally in an area that remains damp, attach the energiser units earth terminal to your earth lead (or insulated lead out cable) to your earth stake.


A good earth can account for 85% of the fences efficiency it is important to get a good earth at all times.


The most common cause of electric fence failures is normally down to a poor earth.


Attention should always be paid to the ground condition, if the ground dries out in summer then the fence will be less effective which is why the further the earth stake is in the soil the better the fence will be, or even have multiple earth connected to each other, mains and high powered energisers over 2 joules require two or three earth stakes to perform effectively.


Please note that leads and cables are not included.


How does earthing work?


For an electric fence shock the current produced by an energizer must complete a full circuit. The current leaves the energizer and moves along the fence wires through the animal, into the soil and back to the energizer via the earth system. If the earth system is ineffective the animal will receive an inadequate shock.
