Powering poultry netting

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I'm interested in the electric poultry netting for expanding my safe zone ranging abilities.  I have a livestock high tensile fence next to the coop that's already grounded and highly functional.  Any reason I can't just hook up to that for my power source?

If you expand it off of the other fence you may run into a problem with hit power (voltage), what do you have running the other fence?

Check Out My youtube channel Hillaire Farming, just getting the channel up and going but will start to be more consistent with better weather to film.

It a Patriot PMX-50 electric charger.

I’d call Premier and chat with them. That Patriot sounds like their equipment.

To me it sounds like it could be done, but they should be able to help you. I’ve chatted with them a couple of times and they’ve been pretty honest with me. To me the issues would be to make sure the hot sides are hot and the grounds are grounded. As mentioned, voltage could be an issue. Sometimes there are little tricks to make it work better.

This too shall pass.  It may pass like a kidney stone, but it will pass.
