Charlie Abel
My name is Charlie Abel, and I specialize in Electric fences to keep pigs out and livestock in on the entire Big Island of Hawai’i.

So, you’re considering an Electric Fence? Here’s the steps I suggest to help you decide:

Step 1: Read my entire website. Look at the pictures. Go to the Timeless Fence System page at http://www.plastic-innovation.com. Look at their website. Most people know what a hog wire fence looks like, but when I say “High Tensile Electric Fence”, not too many people know what I’m talking about. So start your education about electric fences here because I only want to deal with educated customers.

Step 2:  If you like what you see so far, next you can go to the “Sample Invoice” page on this website (or the “Anti-pig fence” page if you want a fence just for pigs) and you can do a rough estimate on your own to see if an investment in electric fencing fits your budget or not.

Step 3:  If the fence fits your budget, the next step is to contact me and make an appointment to come and see my demonstration fence around my property in Mt. View if you want me to install it. If you want to install it yourself, then come see the fence and you can buy the materials in the same trip.

Just as you wouldn’t buy a house or a car without seeing it first, a fence is a big investment and you should know exactly what you are getting before you install one. Come see, feel, and touch it. Don’t just take my word for it, come see how it contains my cows and sheep and keeps pigs out. See my demonstrations: how I throw a large branch on it and it bounces off; how to use a voltmeter and fault finder,  how I can ground it out with copper pipes and you’ll still get a major shock, and how to test ground rods. Please, come ask a bunch of questions. I highly recommend coming to see the fence so you can see exactly what you’ll be getting.  The reason is that I want happy, satisfied customers who know exactly what they are getting. I know that not everybody can or will want to do this, but it is strongly recommended.

Step 4: After you know what you want, and you want me to install your fence, the next logical step is for me to come out to your property and see what it looks like, measure it, and give you an exact estimate of what your investment would be.

Why build an electric fence?

  • Cost is the main reason. You can build an effective fence in the range of $2 – $4. per linear foot of fence.  It is easier and faster to install. I find it to be a one man job.
  • Electric fences give animals an effective message to stay away from the fence. Pigs will dig under, lift up on, or find a hole in a hog wire fence. Horses and other animals will push on a non-electric fence and damage it so that it will not last it’s full lifetime
