I have always used just an ordinary fencer (6 joules, low impedance, etc) from TSC or similar. Running a few (2-3) miles of fence line around 16-20 acres. Works well but I have to weedwhack the fence lines regularly in the summer to keep it hitting well. We just added a few more acres of fence line and I don't look forward to running the weed whacker more distance next year.

I have seen much higher priced fencers online and wondered what the difference was. Our fencing guy was telling me the circuitry is different and that the better fencers put out more juice when called for and fry the weeds off keeping them clear. He says he runs a 20 joule fencer and never has to weed whack the fence lines. Of course this is like music to my ears if it frees me up from all those trips around the fences in the summer. He is saying that for somewhere in the $1,200.00 range he can get me a 20 joule fencer like his.

Question is, are the better fencers worth the cost? What brand do you guys use and do you have to weed whack the fence lines anyway? Thanks in advance.
