HOW TO 66 Wraparounds and tube insulators are only needed on the wires you will electrify. It is common to put a tension indicator spring onto one or more of the wires at the inline wire tighteners (instructions on page 11). 250 pounds is the recommended tension on non-electric-style fences. The first notch on the heavy-duty tension spring tug indicates about 150 pounds of tension. Tighten the wire until the end of the spring exposes 2 notches which equals about 250 pounds of tension. If you know of a weak area in the fence, only tighten the wires enough to keep them from sagging. When you can’t tighten to the full 250 pounds of tension, it becomes more important to keep the fence electrified. Wide line post spacing also requires electric to be on more frequently. This gives you a brief overview of a basic 6-wire fence. Of course, these instructions can be adapted to fences of varying numbers of wire. If you want to use more than 6 wires, you should build double end and corner braces. Suggestions regarding installation or maintenance are only a phone call away. by Charles Kendall © 2019 12½ Gauge High-Tensile Wire Page 4 Wire Tighteners Pg 12-13 Crimp Sleeves Page 18 Tension Springs Page 11 Corner Insulators Page 28 4” Tube Insulators Page 29 13/4” Staples Page 14 4" or 5” Brace Pins Page 15 9" or 10” Brace Pins Page 15 Spinning Jenny to Dispense Wire Page 10 Strainer Handle for Wire Tighteners Page 13 4-Slot Crimp Tool Page 19 Chain Grab to Tension Wire Page 10 Wire Cutters Page 20 Wire Twist Tool Page 9 Drill Bit for Brace Pins Page 15 Acreage Chart Acres 2.5 5 10 20 40 80 Feet 1,320 1,867 2,640 3,733 5,280 7,467 (square pasture) Feet 1,400 1,980 2,800 3,960 5,600 7,920 (pasture 2-times as long as it is wide) Feet 1,650 2,333 3,300 4,667 6,600 9,333 (pasture is 4-times as long as it is wide) Feet 2,100 2,970 4,200 5,940 8,400 11,880 (pasture is 8-times as long as it is wide) Feet 2,805 3,967 5,610 7,933 11,220 15,867 (pasture is 16-times as long as it is wide) Use the acreage chart below for approximate perimeter footage compared to acreage. It is always best to measure the fence line distance as accurately as possible in order to purchase the correct amount of materials. The number of posts and gates needed will vary based on conditions of your terrain and your preferences. Recommended post spacing is 25’ depending on conditions.
