Rotochopper's only 2022 Field Day showcases latest grinders, shredders, and technology
In October 2022, Rotochopper hosted users and potential users at a regional Field Day event in Spokane, Washington. The event provided the ability for the seventy-plus attendees to see seven different pieces of Rotochopper equipment in action.
After the opening comments, a B-66 horizontal grinder was displayed grinding green waste and feeding directly into a Rotochopper's 365R tracked radial stacking conveyor.
The morning proceeded with demonstrations of Rotochopper's screen change system on the B-66 horizontal grinder, the 75DK slow speed shredder, and the Go-Bagger 250. Attendees provided insight, questions, and conversations about the equipment and the use cases that would fit their own operations.
Doug (Spike) Meyer, director of customer service at Rotochopper, logged into a machine currently running in the field and shared with attendees the data and analysis that is available remotely through RotoLink, Rotochopper's remote monitoring system. This was followed by a Q&A conversation about colourant and colouring capabilities facilitated by Matt Cox, a western regional sales manager at Colorbiotics.
Rotochopper rounded out the afternoon with a demo of Rotochopper's new MT175 trommel screen, and grind and colour demos of the MP-2 and B-66. The 365R tracked radial stacking conveyor was also part of the demonstration, this time behind the B-66L as it fed coloured mulch onto the conveyor and demonstrated radial features for an operation.
"As our only Field Day Event held this year, we had more machines on display than previous events," says Rotochopper Sales Manager, Andy Bulson. "The attendees seemed to appreciate the wide range of equipment showcased from the B-66 to the Go-Bagger and our new trommel and stacking conveyor. It was also an excellent time to introduce Chad Angeli, our new vice president of customer experience to some of our West Coast customers and prospects. A huge thank you to Barr-Tech and their employees for being such a wonderful host."
Attendees at the event were excited to see all the equipment in action, network with other business owners, and learn about the new and exciting things happening at Rotochopper.
