Why Farm Stands Are Choosing Epson TM-H6000III Receipt Printers

Spring has finally arrived, and along with warmer weather and longer days comes the anticipation of many of our favorite establishments reopening: golf clubs, ice cream shops, and– of course– farm stands.

Here in New England during the Spring and Summer you can’t drive too far without coming across a farm stand bursting with fresh summer fruits, vegetables, and other delicious locally sourced foods. And if we’ve noticed one thing about farm stands, it’s that their owners aren’t just concerned with the quality of their food; they also have high standards when it comes to their equipment, including the POS printer they use at their stands.

Many experienced farm stand owners choose and recommend the Epson TM-H6000III POS printer for their farm stands. Why is this printer their choice for their busy warm season operations? We’re here to tell you why the TM-H6000III is such a popular choice for this industry– and why it might be a great choice for your farm stand, too!

Reason 1: Customization Options

There are many ways to customize the Epson TM-H6000III receipt printer to fit your needs. Here at Hillside Electronics, we offer state-of-the-art, professionally refurbished TM-H6000III printers that are guaranteed to serve your business reliably and efficiently for years to come. Each printer at Hillside Electronics comes with the much sought after MICR and Endorsement technology, and your choice of either a Serial, USB, Powered USB, Parallel, or Ethernet interface. The dimensions of the TM-H6000III come in at 7.3 x 11.7 x 8.2 inches, and the machine weighs 13 pounds– a size that is optimal for durability and yet compact enough to not take up too much valuable real estate on your counter.

Reason 2: High Speed Receipt Printing & Windows Compatibility

The Epson TM-H6000III delivers superior high-speed receipt & slip printing. The printer is capable of printing receipts at a speed of 200mm per second / 63 Ips. For two-color mode (the printer can print in two colors with special thermal paper), the speed is an impressive 78mm per second / 24.51 Ips. In addition, Epson TM-H6000III printers are fully compatible with POS systems and computers running Windows software.

Reason 3: Slip Printing with Endorsement

Purchasing an Epson TM-H6000III printer may be an excellent choice for your farm stand because of its slip & endorsement printing capabilities. Slip printing means that paper or card stock can be inserted into the printer for printing within a 3" margin via the slip deck. Endorsement printing allows for printing on the back of the inserted material. This way, when paper needs printing on both sides, it only has to be inserted once, rather than having to remove the paper and flip it in order to print on the opposite side.

Slip printing with endorsement is ideal for farm stands as it can be utilized for a variety of purposes. Say, for instance, you have a farm that sells pumpkins. A customer may want to purchase three large pumpkins, but they might not want to have to haul all three up to the counter to pay. In this instance, an employee could insert a piece of paper or card stock into the slip deck which can quickly and simply print out a note with the number of pumpkins and the size the customer chose. The customer could then hand the paper to the cashier, while the employee could transport the pumpkins to the patron's car. Farm stands can benefit greatly from the versatility of slip and endorsement printing in their businesses.

Reason 4: MICR Check Processing Capabilities

For farm stands that accept payment by check, the Epson TM-H6000III's MICR Check processing capabilities is a definite advantage. MICR (Magnetic Link Character Recognition) facilitates the processing of checks. Epson's TM-H6000III's MICR has an accuracy of 99.9%, almost completely eliminating misreads and substitution errors. The MICR reader is integrated into the slip feeding mechanism of all of the Epson TM-H6000 models.


Reason 5: Durable & Reliable at a Lower Cost

If you're looking for superior reliability and durability without a hefty price tag, the Epson TM-H6000III is a superb choice! In fact, most variations of TM-H6000IIIs we sell here at Hillside Electronics are only $189-$199 (with the exception of models with an Ethernet interface, which come in at $269.99). For a printer that will last you many years, the TM-H6000III is a great investment that won't break the bank.


Reason 6: Safety & Sustainability Certifications

For safety and environmentally conscious farm stand owners, the Epson TM-H6000III is a very thoughtful choice. The TM-H6000III is both WEE and RoHS Compliant. These certifications were developed to reduce waste arising from electronic equipment, to limit the concentrations of potentially environmentally harmful substances, and to improve environmental performance for the life cycle of these appliances. Epson is dedicated to continuing to improve the quality of their products, while being mindful of their impact on the environment, and these certifications help consumers know they are helping this mission when they purchase an Epson printer.
