Just a little background. I was born and raised on a farm and studied electronics at Valpariso Technical Institute in Valparaiso, Indiana. For some years I worked in the Airospace Industry as a tech writer and production engineer, farming on the side raising beef cattle. I know some of the challenges that farmers face each day. I became a ham radio operator (w8nwx) when in high school and early on repaired all sorts of electronic devices. One day a farm friend of mine mentioned that I should repair electric fencers. I started studying how they worked then contacted some of the leading manufacturers and become certified as a repair facility. We are a family owned business with myself and two of my family in training as technicians. It has been very rewarding serving the farming community and to watch our business grow into what is known across our great country as Dick’s Electric Fencer Repair Inc.

More About Electric Fencers
There are three general types of electric fencers; some operate on domestic 110V ac, some are battery operated and some operate on battery/solar combinations. Regardless of power source, the single goal for all electric fencers is to provide a safe electrical charge to fences for the containment of livestock.
Depending on where you live in this country an electric fencer may be referred to by many different names. Primarily they are referred to as either a fencer, charger, energizer or controller. Sometimes they are referred to as a fence charger, electric fence charger, fence energizer, electric fence energizer, fence controller or electric fence controller. We repair them all!
