Mine are Zarebas and they sure are nothing to brag about. The best thing about them is the local Co-op handles parts and they are easy to fix, unless they take a direct hit.

Some of that stuff has gotten crazy expensive. Guy I work for and a buddy of mine all walked in to the feed store to get some stuff. One of the things we needed was a hot wire fence tester. The cheapest one was $60 and went up to $100. I told them for like $20 Ill grab the wire to see if its hot. They both laughed... I was like... no, for real, $20. :) We ended up finding one for $8 at another place.

How accurate are you at telling the difference between 4k volts and 10k volts? A decent digital is worth its weight. And if you get the ones that show the direction of a ground (Not all that much more money) they can be worth twice their weight if you have a lot of fences and sub-divided fences

Yep I was way to stingy for years and will gladly pay twice what I paid for one I have now if it quits

What store is that?

I've got 3 of the M1000's and they've been pretty good boxes. Still have one of the old M800's, and swear it outperforms the larger units.

That box say 18 joules. I hit a 15 joule fence one time. I saw the light. I think my life flashed before my eyes. I try to avoid my 2 or 3 joule fences. I don't get within 10 feet of my neighbors 15 joule fence. Works the same for cows.

My wife bumped her head on a fence with a M800 on it one time, it literally left a black mark on her head. She swears she saw stars.

With the digital checker, I start picking up stray voltage 6-8 inches from a hot wire on one of the good fences. I think cows can pick up on that with their noses, wet as they are.
