Rotochopper owners and operators gathered at Rotochopper’s manufacturing facility in St. Martin, Minn., for training the third week of February. The customer service department hosts Rotochopper University annually for companies that have purchased Rotochopper equipment during the past year. After taking a break from the event in 2021, the team was thrilled to have attendees back in session this 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. “Great instructors with a lot of helpful knowledge for Rotochopper operators” shared one event attendee. Another attendee commented, “this event is definitely a benefit for anyone around or operating a Rotochopper”.

Rotochopper was able to host over 20 students during the two day event from various companies across the United States. Rotochopper customer service manager and event instructor, Adam Asmus, shared the following thoughts, “Rotochopper University continues to be an event that we find has a great benefit to our customers. The attendees can connect with our service team, our company and each other in ways that will benefit their operation for years to come. As an instructor for the event, I was thoroughly impressed with group of attendees this year and enjoyed the time we were able to spend with them”.
