UPGRADED -

PREMIUM 3 REEL SYSTEM - 500M 9 STRAND TURBOBRAID WITH GEARED REELS this amazing system has been made even better by changing the polywire to braided polywire - so instead of it being twisted its braided for strength its 1mm thicker (3mm in total) and has a higher breaking strain of 105 kg, so zapper and stronger (all you need to make it even better is for someone to put the fence up for you)

Why would you use this three reel system? Strip grazing sheep with three reel system

There are many applications for Three Reel Systems and they are employed for many different reasons: to facilitate strip grazing, to fence off seasonal sheep/cattle grazing, to protect walls or hedges, and as a temporary barrier.  These fences are quick and easy to put up and likewise take down and store.  Theses systems are a semi-permanent and sometimes a permanent solution to livestock containment and can be made into any configuration.

What does this three reel system consist of ?

Kit list:

  • 3 x 3:1 Geared Reels
  • 3 x NEW 500m 9 strand Turbocharge Braid - Stronger braided not twisted 
  • 5 x 10 pack posts
  • 2 x end system post with insulators
  • 1 x reel fixing post
  • 3 x reel fixing bracket
  • 2 x hart clip double line connector

You will need to add an energiser, earth stake (and I recommend a fence tester)

Kits come with the turbobraid pre-wound on to the reel which makes for super-fast installation. The three reels containing the turbo braid are attached by reel fixing bracket to the Reel Fixing Post.  This post is generally placed next to a wooden corner strainer it is easy to run the turbobraid out from this spot around the perimeter of the containment area.  The reels keep tension in the fence and store the turbobraid when not in use.  Plastic posts are then used to carry the turbobraid along to the metal posts at corners and the end (metal posts add tension and stability to the fence).  The hart clip line to line connector ensures that power is passed to each horizontal line.

Which animals can be contained by a reel system?

Cows, sheep, goats, pigs and even poultry can be contained by reel systems.  There are variations on the main theme – ie goats require taller posts. Poultry being kept on a larger scale can be contained behind an eight wire system.  Three fixing posts with eight reels would be required and these would be situated in serial next to each other and the wires would be guided to the first post and then run out through insulators on tall metal posts.

 

Can I add to a 3 reel system?

Three reel system used for strip grazing.

three reel systems can be added together to cover greater distances.  Most three reel systems on the market today are about 500m in length.  To cover a 1000m stretch you can either start the 2nd system at the end of the 1st system or you can work back and place the start of the 2nd system at the end of your 1000m section and walk toward the 1st system and tie then together. The most important things to check when increasing your fence size would be that your energiser is capable of powering this extended distance.  Check the output joules and the energiser’s general capacity. ( Give us a call if you are unsure)

 

 

 

 

 

Top Tips

  • Measure out the area to be fenced twice before you buy.
  • Get extra plastic posts if you think the area is exposed or undulating to help maintain tension in the fence.
  • Make sure you have the correct energiser ie that it is powerful enough to power three 500 meter lines with a bit left over and is compatible with the type of animal being contained.
  • Use a fence tester to check the fence on a regular basis. This will help to tell you if there is shorting or perhaps a low battery or maybe even if the energiser is not working properly. Plus you don't have to touch the fence yourself 😂.
  • Extra wooden posts with screw in insulators or corner pulleys can be used to help tension the fence if it is covering a long distance or has many corners

As a company we say this time and time again… as with any electric fence a little planning goes along way.  Pace out your fence and work out which form of power, ie mains, battery or solar, are best for your fence.  Most three reel systems are sold as ready made kits – you just need to add the energiser, earth stake and fence tester  Kits do vary and so it is always worth checking if you are comparing like for like.
