Rotochopper owners and operators gathered at Rotochopper’s manufacturing facility in St. Martin, MN for training the last two weeks of February. The customer service department hosts Rotochopper University annually for companies that have purchased Rotochopper grinders during the past year.
The two-day class includes a manufacturing facility tour, equipment operation best practice training, a hands-on demonstration and plenty of networking opportunities allowing machine owners to learn from each other as well. This year the education focused on ‘how to properly feed your grinder’, ‘how to perform preventative maintenance’ and ‘how to troubleshoot’. The hands-on demonstrations showed attendees how to install the main rotor bearings and how to adjust the sheave and tension the drive belt on a Rotochopper grinder. “The class was well organized, the instructors are very knowledgeable, plus they kept things moving with the mix of classroom and hands on training,” attendee from Norwich, Ontario.
Rotochopper offered two session options, with over 50 students from 35 companies across the US and Canada attending. “Rotochopper University was very beneficial. I was able to gain knowledge on every part of my machine. It felt very personal, and not like generic coverage. This was a very good course and I would recommend to anyone with a Rotochopper machine,” attendee from Appleton, WI.
