American FarmWorks 5-Mile AC Powered Low Impedance Charger, EA5M-AFW is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 48.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from No power I have this on 900 ft of wire. I have a 6 foot copper ground rod sunk into a perpetually wet spot on my place. Was weak. So I also attached it to the ground rod for my breaker box on the side of my house and to the one for the power pole in my hard. All new insulators nothing touching. How weak is it? The grass is wet from a recent rain and I can stand barefooted and hold the wire. And I have to really concentrate to feel anything. Tried a piece of fencing wire and pliers and touched to positive wire at box and then over to ground. Nothing. My old box would actually make an arc like a spark plug. This one...nothing. I called the tractor supply I got it from and they wont refund replace. Even though I bought the protection plan and it's only been installed 3 hrs. And no it's not in the weather. It's in the dry.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good device, good price This item works but I wish it had an LED to indicate that it was operational. There were times when the breaker was tripped and I didn’t know it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not working? I am not sure how to tell if this charger is actually working. It makes no sound when plugged in and there is no indicator light to let you know if it is running. This is my first electric fence so I am learning as I go, but I would think there would be some indication that the charger is actually giving out a charge. Very frustrating. Returning for a different unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Should be good for small areas, just was not mine. I did not get to really use this item. Although it was easy enough to install, we found out it was not going to be strong enough for our needs.

This unit is advertised as a "weather-resistant" unit (this was a selling point to why I bought it) yet now I see seller comments say it has to be housed. Why is weather-resistant being described if it can't be in the elements outside?

Asked by: Egdirreb
Thank you for bringing this to our attention, this unit is not weather-resistant.

I was sold a 6ft copper coated grounding rod with my 5 mile unit. Is the 6ft the necessary length and must it be buried completely? We are using hot wire to keep German Shepherd behind privacy fence in backyard.

Asked by: GretchenAR
Yes, we generally recommend three grounding rods placed about 10 feet apart and driven at least 6 feet into the ground in order to get the appropriate voltage for your fence.

In Description of Product it indicates an electrical indicator light. I do not see this on my unit. Is There supposed to be an indicator light somewhere?

Asked by: TxBengalFan
This charger is not equipped with a "Fence OK" light. We recommend regularly testing the energizer with a fence tester.

After running the output wire and ground wire, do I need to loop the output wire back to the controller?

Asked by: James0214
No, the hot wire does not need to create a complete loop back to the energizer.

I think my problem is coyotes getting my chickens. Are they considered under the dogs, under your animals? Or is there something stronger I need to get.? I want to put my wire atop the chicken yard fence.

Asked by: eeegee
Coyotes are considered predatory animals rather than dogs. Often a more powerful charger that can provide a minimum of 4,000-5,000 volts on the fence is recommended vs. what would be used for dogs.
