Rotochopper, St. Martin, Minnesota, hosted Rotochopper University, an exclusive training event for owners and operators the last two weeks of February.
The two-day class included a manufacturing facility tour, equipment operation best practice training, a hands-on demonstration and networking opportunities. 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, as well as 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,” says an attendee from Norwich, Ontario.
Rotochopper offered two session options, with over 50 students from 35 companies across the U.S. and Canada attending.
“Rotochopper University was very beneficial,” says an attendee from Appleton, Wisconsin. “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.”
