Energiser Focus - Shrike - 3v Battery Operated

 December Energiser Focus - Shrike 3v Battery Operated Energiser

Hotline Shrike Energiser

Looking for the ideal equestrian Christmas present...?

Why not try the small but mighty Shrike? The Shrike's a 3 volt battery operated electric fencing energiser... and the great news is that we have it on special offer until 31st December 2013 !

Normally £76.26, we are now selling it at a cool yule £55.25 (inc VAT)!

So when would you use a Shrike?  With its clean modern looks it's very popular for paddock fencing or strip grazing particularly within the equestrian sector.  It's so easy to use and is very compact but efficient too, making it great for shorter temporary electric fencing - but don't be fooled - it can do up to 800m fencing - powerful enough for many applications. And just think, with this dinky little energiser you (or the lucky recipient - if you can bear to give it away as an Xmas pressie!) will not have the hassle of recharging 12v batteries

How does the Shrike energiser work?: it works from 2 x 3v D-Cell batteries (similar to torch batteries) and these batteries will last approx 6-8 weeks running 24 hours a day. The cleverly designed shape of the shrike means that it can be placed on the fence line in between two fence posts (which are placed closely together) to prevent it from being blown along the fencing line or it can be attached to a fence post. Or it can even be hung on the earth stake (ES2) - in effect using the earth stake as a stand.  It's good practise especially in our wintry weather to test your fence regularly with a fence tester to make sure it is working well.

So how do you get the Shrike up and running?
It's so easy!  All you have to do is insert batteries into Shrike, attach the live lead to the fencing and attach the earth lead to the earth stake and then turn on (All leads are included).  The pulse indicator will start flashing immediately to show every second pulse travelling out from the energiser along the fence so you can see at a glance that it is working!
