Our History

Now celebrating over 46 years of service to the agricultural community, Ballweg Implement boasts more than 45 employees who are trained and motivated to provide the best experience in customer satisfaction for sales, parts and service. We have two locations, Ballweg Implement in Waupun and Ballweg Turf & Leisure in Beaver Dam.

Tom and Joan Ballweg purchased the former Ahrens Implement in Markesan in November of 1976 and opened Ballweg Implement Co., Inc. on December 1, 1976 with Tom, Joan and seven employees.


Over the first 20 years, the Markesan location office and showroom areas were remodeled twice and a large addition was built for combine service in 1986.

Through the 80s and 90s, the agricultural base continued to grow as did the John Deere Lawn and Grounds Care line, adding lawn mowers, garden tractors, chain saws, compact utility tractors and skid loaders.

1980s — 1990s

In April 1998, the opportunity to expand presented itself when Harold Maly, owner of Maly Implement in Waupun, decided to retire. This location on Hwy 68, just west of the Waupun city limits, became the new home for Ballweg Implement and the Markesan location was closed.


In the new, larger location at Waupun, the business has continued to grow with many unique features. Our sales line expanded to include Ferris Commercial Mowers in 2005.


In May 2008, Tom and Joan added a second location in Beaver Dam called Ballweg Turf and Leisure.

This location specializes in lawn and garden, commercial and leisure products and is located on North Spring Street, just north of the mall. We stock lawn and garden equipment, ATVs and trailers. We are also proud to carry a full line of John Deere merchandise, memorabilia and the parts to back our products.


Ballweg Implement in Waupun broke ground in October 2011 on a 9,000 sq. ft. expansion that was dedicated to our service department, along with expanded parts storage. This includes a larger and roomier showroom to provide space for expanded inventory of JD identity wear and giftware, and indoor equipment displays. We completed the construction Spring of 2012 and if you haven’t stopped in to check out the new showroom in Waupun, do so today!

We are a sales outlet for Premier Portable Buildings. Actual buildings on sight for you to inspect. Order the building style, options and size you need. Nine styles to choose from with a 5 year craftsmanship warranty and a standard 30 year metal roof. Purchase and Rent To Own options are available, Premier Portable Buildings here at Ballweg Implement of Beaver Dam.
