Electric Motor Pre-Start

Rotochopper electric grinders already offer dramatic savings over comparable diesel-power wood grinders, and we’ve further minimized the cost of operating electric grinders by reducing the amperage surge that normally occurs at start-up with our exclusive mechanical soft start system.

Reduced Start-Up Costs

Our mechanical soft start (patent pending) gradually spins up the rotor to a specified RPM level before engaging the main electric motor. The electric motor therefore encounters less resistance at start-up, dramatically reducing the amperage spike. Power companies typically apply fees to amperage spikes from large electric motors. This exclusive system reduces or even eliminates these fees.

More than Power Bill Reductions

A more controlled, gradual start-up means less wear on drive belts and other components. Rotochopper electric grinders already have a solid reputation for consistent uptime and longevity. This new approach to start-up further enhances the dependability and efficiency of Rotochopper electric grinders.
