Building and repairing fence is one of those jobs that is as much a part of rural life as riding a tractor. Whether on a livestock operation where it is important to keep critters in or on a vegetable farm where it is important to keep critters out, fencing is an unavoidable task. Anyone who has done fence work knows how exhausting it can be to drive nails or staples into an endless row of fence posts.

Straight out of New Zealand, where a lot of good cattle ideas come from, is this beauty. The award-winning STOCKade ST400i stapler is a heavy-duty cordless gun that holds 50 staples and, through a combined fuel cartridge and battery system, delivers one heck of a punch, enough to drive into any wooden post out there. Where was this when I was on the job?

I like the catch phrase ‘farming smarter, not harder’ and two new tools from Stockade, the ST315i batten stapler, and ST400i post stapler certainly tick that box.

Since we first started adapting Paslode power actuated nailing tools for fencing applications, STOCKade has been determined to deliver fencing staple solutions which deliver better results; faster and safer than traditional hand stapling.

STOCKade staplers are becoming increasingly common across New Zealand as fencing contractors and farmers discover our tools revolutionise the way they fence. Benefits of the stapling tools are obvious to anyone who has used them, their ease of use means anyone can achieve a consistently high quality result and dramatically reduce the time it takes to staple off any fence with fewer aches and pains.

Building and repairing fence is one of those jobs that is as much a part of rural life as riding tractor. Whether on a livestock operation where it is important to keep critters in or on a vegetable operation where it is important to keep critters out, fencing is one of those chores that comes with the territory.

Anyone who has done any amount of fence work knows how exhausting it can be to drive nails or staples into an endless row of fence posts.

Let’s face it. If there is one task that many cattle producers dread, it is installing and/or fixing fence. Put simply, it’s a pain, and for that reason it is often put off and ignored as long as possible. After all, it is time consuming, physically tasking and when it comes to ranching, it’s often a long ways away from the ranch.

On November 30, 2016, FenceFastFenceFast, STOCKade’s Canadian distributor, attended the Ag in Motion Innovations Program awards ceremony at the Agricultural Manufacturers of Canada Convention in Calgary.

Entering the STOCKade ST400i Cordless Fence Stapler, FenceFast won the Equipment Innovation Award and the People’s Choice Award.

During the 2016 Agri-Trade Equipment Expo in Red Deer, Alberta, three pieces of technology were awarded Ag Innovations awards for their contributions to helping farmers complete their work.

They’re not cheap, but this cordless fence stapler will make the job go at least five times faster, says its Canadian distributor. 

Innovation drives the agriculture industry and a lot of it is on display at Agri-Trade.
