Combines the familiar hinge joint knot with high tensile steel. This means Gaucho is significantly stronger and installs faster and with fewer posts. Plus, using Gaucho means reduced sagging and less maintenance. A 14 gauge Gaucho Field Fence with its 12.5 gauge top and bottom wires is as strong as a 12.5 gauge low carbon fence. And a 12.5 gauge Gaucho Field Fence with 10.5 gauge top and bottom wires is stronger than 11g and equivalent to 9g low carbon field fence. Both of these options are less expensive than using low carbon field fence.
