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 demonstration showed attendees how to install the main rotor bearings on a Rotochopper grinder.
Rotochopper offered two session options, with over 50 students from 32 companies across the US and Canada attending. “Being at Rotochopper University this year has been really interesting, I really enjoyed being able to come to the Rotochopper factory to see and meet the people that are behind the machines that we are operating on a regular basis. Anyone that operates a Rotochopper would benefit from coming here to see exactly how much care and time are put into building these machines. It really was a wonderful experience,” Jason Fenley, AKA Tree Removal, Buford, GA.
