Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Way to Go if You Really Wanna Know What Your Fence is Doing! - Originally posted on Amazon.com This is a great product that takes all of the guesswork out of setting up and maintaining an electric fence. With the digital display that reads out to 100 volts, you can detect and correct drains or poor connections in your fence system before they become a problem. It's reassuring to see how much voltage is actually on the wire at various points in the fence.MUCH better than the neon light type testers. Those are fine if you only want to spend $10 or want something that can bang around in your pocket without concern, but the digital tester is much easier to read and has greater resolution instead of to the nearest 500-1,000 volts like the neon testers.So far, min has worked out well, even gotten a little wet a few times and works fine. I think the lead could be a bit higher quality, but it does work.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not last I have had this about two months and has already quit working. I use electric fence for my pigs so I am constantly checking it because of rooting. Even after replacing the batteries nothing. I purchased this on the old saying you get what you paid for, Not in this case. Still using the old light up one I have had for several years. Some time simpler is better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every dollar - Originally posted on Amazon.com Not being technical I wanted to buy something that was not complicated and easy to use. This instrument is everything and more. It is idiot proof and worth every dollar I paid for it. It is very economical as it switches itself off thus saving the battery. Superb product and great value for money.Highly recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Performs as described - Originally posted on Amazon.com This digital voltmeter works as decribed for up to about 10,000 V. Easy to use. My fence has pulses over 10kV and this was the best tools I found for assessing the actual voltage. My only complaint is the retailer send me an obviously used product (small crack in housing and bent probe tip) as a new one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fence tester - Originally posted on Amazon.com After using the testers with the little lights that are hard to see, this product has been much easier and faster to use. Well worth the money. Do be careful with the ground-prong because it won't stay attached long if you repeatedly jerk it out of the ground carelessly. Don't ask me how I know!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Know the electric fence's voltage - Originally posted on Amazon.com The electric fence works only with sufficient voltage in all areas. The Zareba tester tkes the guesswork out, and with it finding problems is easy. It would be nice to be able to measure fence voltage up to about 13 kV, but all the testers in the market stop at 10 kV.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my needs.... Great product, easy to use, highly visible display even during bright sunlight. I echo the comments made in the other reviews. Recommend purchasing this model rather than their less expensive model RSVT8. You will be glad you did.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great while it works I run about 2miles of wire. Great tester. I disconnect gates until I find which run is bad., shows voltage drop on the plastic type wire. But it just quit working bought a replacement the next day. It is a very good tool to have.
