Preventative Maintenance Program
As a factory-direct company, we are focused on the success of each customer with expert, dedicated customer support. With our Preventative Maintenance Program, a Rotochopper product specialist visits your work site to ensure your grinder is in top condition and your operators are maximizing its performance with best practices.
A preventative maintenance visit optimizes grinder efficiency, minimizes maintenance downtime and maximizes machine longevity.
In order to assist our customers in keeping their equipment operating economically, at peak performance, reduce downtime, and increase equipment life, we offer preventative maintenance program as individual visits or customers can contract a series of visits for even greater value. The frequency of the visits is established based on duration of daily operation and work week.
What to Expect
During a typical preventative maintenance visit, our service technician will complete the Preventative Maintenance checklist, monitor the operation of the machine, discusses machine performance and history with operators, reviews maintenance records, determines all necessary maintenance based on inspection and operator comments, performs preventative maintenance, and coaches operators in best practices. The customer is responsible for providing all parts and consumable items required for the preventative maintenance. Each preventative maintenance visit is customized to your machine and your operation.
Example Maintenance Tasks
- Check all control devices
- Check all moving parts for smooth operation
- Check hydraulic system pressures
- Observe environment and feedstock for potential causes of machine problems
- Check condition of fluids and filters
- Monitor and record electric motor amp draws
- Inspect and align all conveyor belts
- Inspect and record rotor, teeth, and screen wear
Scheduling Preventative Maintenance Visits
Typical preventative maintenance visits will last four to six hours. All operators and maintenance personnel should plan on being available when the product specialist is on-site to answer any questions or concerns. The machine and the area around the machine should be clean to allow the product specialist to access all areas of the machine. Your Rotochopper grinder or bagger is most profitable when it is in optimal condition. The expert guidance and service you get from our Preventative Maintenance Program will keep your machine running at its best.
