Over the course of the last three months, St. Martin, Minnesota-based Rotochopper has hosted three field day events across the country. The events, hosted at Rotochopper customers sites in Wisconsin, Tennessee and Texas, provided an opportunity for attendees to see Rotochopper equipment in action, network with other business owners and operators, and connect with the Rotochopper team.
The first event was conducted at Hay Creek Companies in Pittsville, Wisconsin. Machines demoed at the event included two horizontal grinders owned by Hay Creek Companies—a B-66 and an EC-366 that feeds into a Rotochopper RMT Hammermill. In addition, the 75DK slow-speed shredder, GB-250 Bagger and Rotochopper’s new 365R Radial Stacking Conveyor were demonstrated at the event. During the field day, attendees were able to tour Hay Creek Companies facility and learn more about their operation in which they produce animal bedding, wood pellets and mulch.
The next event was hosted at The Compost Company outside of Nashville, Tennessee. Rotochopper’s Mid-Atlantic sales team provided attendees with a full day of demonstrations and learning. The day included demos of the Rotochopper B-66L, FP-66, 75DK Shredder and a GB-250. In between machine demos, attendees were also able to learn more about Rotochopper’s exclusive screen change system.
The final event was hosted by Rotochopper’s South-Central sales team at GWG Wood Group in Dallas. Attendees were able to see the B-66L grind green waste and whole logs, and after a screen change, switch to quickly process regrinding material. The MP-2 showed its ability to efficiently grind pallets and pallet scrap. Additionally, the 75DK Shredder was on-site to demo C&D materials and tires. Attendees were also able to view GWG’s two machines, the B-66 and B-66E, in action. Combined, these machines have over 11,000 hours logged. Rotochopper also provided a presentation on RotoLink to share the advantages of a remote monitoring system with attendees.
“The Rotochopper field day events provide a unique opportunity for attendees from a regional area to participate in an up-close-and-personal demo event. Attendees are able to not only learn from the Rotochopper sales and service team, but also from other business owners. The connections made at these events are immeasurable,” Rotochopper Marketing Manager Nicole Klein says.
