Eis Implement News and Tips
First Man Planting
The snow is almost gone, and you think, it's time to dig the planter out from the back of the shed. You watch weather reports, your fields soil moisture, temperatures, and when the ideal conditions arise, you hit the fields. As your corn emerges you notice a spot here and there with missing or small ears reducing your total yield.
This is where seed meter inspections can help improve singulation and space seeds evenly, which reduces the competition between plants and maximizes the ears per acre. We often hear that a seed meter inspection is too costly per unity or to bring in one's meters to a dealership requires time away from their operation, which they just can't spare.
This is why Eis Implement has invested in a portable meter testing, allowing testing to be done directly on-site for any John Deere, Kinze or Precision Planting meters. We will test with your seed and check for singulation, seed release index, proper speed, population, and vacuum levels for a low cost of $25 per meter.
$25 per meter may seem high to some, but if you are running 32,000 population at 95.1% singulation, figuring current commodity pricing at $3.33, you could be losing $43.73 per acre.

How to Respool Your Weed Trimmer
Anyone who has a yard to maintain knows this common frustration: respooling the weed trimmer.
In years past, the process was a long and difficult one - generally due to the design of most trimmers. You had to push in the tabs or unscrew the previous spool, cut a long length of string (or two), locate the small hole, push the string though, and wind the string manually - you remember.
however, things are looking up! Companies like STIHL are coming out with simplified easy-feed heads to take away those headaches. The latest line from STIHL, the CF3 Pro Trimmer, features their AutoCut EasySpool Trimmer Head. To use, you simply insert the line and turn a knob. That's it! And, it's made of incredibly durable, heavy-duty plastic to cut though the toughest weeds. To release the line while trimming, just tab the head on the ground. This simple-to-use option is compatible with most straight or curved shaft trimmers. Give us a call or stop by and we'll be happy to see if this new trimmer head will work with your current trimmer.
Already have string at home? Try your hand at respooling other varieties of STIHL trimmers by using the helpful step-by-step videos in our Learning Center.
To simplify the process even more, stop by and we can respool your trimmer for you. This is absolutely free when you buy any of our trimmer string products.
Whether you want to try the new EasySpool Trimmer Head, re-spool a traditional model at home, or let us do the work for you...we'll get that trimmer in working shape so you can get back to work on those weeds!

Fundraising with 4th H.O.O.A.H. of Wisconsin
This spring, Eis Implement had a great opportunity to give back to our local community. We decided to get involved with an area charity called the 4th H.O.O.A.H. of Wisconsin.
The Wisconsin chapter was founded in 2013 by local veteran, William Kocken, with the mission of lending support to servicemen and women who currently deploying and veterans who are returning from service. The group initiated the annual Green Bay Milwaukee for Them Ruck March and the Veterans Suicide Awareness March - both of which raise awareness and funds for local veterans.
In support of this organization, Eis Implement was able to assist with fundraising on Facebook. For every new page "like" Eis received from May 1st - May 24th, we donated one dollar to 4th H.O.O.A.H. of Wisconsin - totaling $500!
"At Eis Implement, we're especially moved by the sacrifice of veterans and active military. We so appreciate what these great men and woman have done for our country - and it often goes unnoticed. This fundraiser has been one small way for us to make a difference in the lives of these heroes living right in our community," said Jon Eis.

Some exciting things have been happening at Eis Implement this spring. We were selected to receive two significant awards.
We are proud to announce that we have been chosen, for the third year in a row, as on of Landoll's Top 25 Dealers in the United Sates. Landoll, a major manufacturer of agricultural equipment, trailers, forklifts, and other large machinery, is located in Marysville, Kansas and sells their large implements nation-wide.
It is such an honor to be selected as top dealer among a long list of great companies they do business with all over the U.S.
This April, Territory Manager Kevin Wendland came to Eis Implement to present us with this year's plaque.
We would like to thank Landoll for being an excellent company to work with. They have proven to be an incredibly customer-oriented company that goes the extra mile to serve others and have shown such kind hospitality towards us during our visits to their headquarters.
We look forward to next year's award and hope to remain one of the top dealers in the nation.
SorbIts Achievement in Waste Reduction
ITU AbsorbTech has awarded Eis Implement with a plaque in recognition of our environmental initiatives to reduce solid waste and pollution over the past year, in support of ISO 14001.
By utilizing the SobIts system, which includes launderable, reusable textiles, we were able to prevent 1,788 pounds of industrial wiping towels, 145 pounds of restroom hand towels, and 58 pounds of mop heads from entering landfills.
In addition to preventing this sold waste, we where also able to prevent the typical oils and by-products of our industry from entering landfills. These liquids were collected using absorbent materials and will be repurposed elsewhere in our industry rather than being discarded, as was the typical process many years ago.
"We know that it's essential to make smarter environmental choices these days. There was zero hesitation to get on board with this waste reduction plan. It's great to see that small changes like this can make a big difference over time," said Jon Eis.

To Bag or to Mulch - That is the Question
Most of us can agree on one thing -we'd all like a healthy-looking, green lawn. And, the perennial question that comes up is: which choice is better for my lawn, bagging my grass clippings or mulching them? Mulching is actually best choice for most lawns, with a couple of exceptions.
