OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS FOR TRU-TEK ELECTRIC FENCE COST ESTIMATOR

The software is supplied as is to assist with costing materials needed for an electric fence and any other wire fence,whether using barbed wire or normal steel wire.
With a bit of imagination you can even calculate the cost of a wooden picket fence or diamond mesh fence.

Height of the fence depends on the length of poles for which you input prices and the number of live and/or dead strands of wire.

Corner post construction can be selected between horisontal stay between two posts (H-Construction) or single angled stay post. The system will default to single angled staypost unless the checkbox is checked for H-Construction.

If Prices for material were entered excluding VAT, the resulting calculations will be excluding Vat.

if spacing between standard fence posts is left blank, the system will use a standard spacing of 6 meters.

3.  Hit Calculate and the results will be displayed under Rough Estimated Cost columns.

if spacing between droppers are left blank, the system will use a standard spacing of 2 meters.

1   Enter the latest prices for material.
2.  Input fence parameters.
3.  Hit Calculate and the results will be displayed under Rough Estimated Cost columns..


PICKET FENCE

Standard poles will be counted as upright planks on picket fence and price should be entered per each.
Fencing wire will be counted as horisontal beams and price should be entered per meter.


1.  Decide on distance from centre to centre between upright planks, taking into account the width of the planks.
2.  Decide how many horisontal beams 
3.  Enter Fence parameters, using dead wires as horisontal beams and distance between standard posts as distance     centre to centre between upright planks. Live wires must be left blank.
4.  Hit Calculate and the results will be displayed under Rough Estimated Cost columns.
