GX9.6

The NEW Gregoire GX9 large canopy grape harvester with side arm destemmer is available to purchase in Australia and ready to harvest for vintage 2021. The Gregoire engineering team have been hard in work of recent years listening to growers around the world what they need in grape harvester especially in Australia and the USA. The design requirement for the new Gregoire GX9 side arm destemmer machine is to handle large yielding, big canopy crops that can destem fruit simple and easy whilst using a discharge arm to deal with the long rows we have in both countries.  

Gregoire have made many changes from the current G9.330 machine with a new Cabin and driving system but more importantly improving the picking head design and conveying system. The main item done on the picking head was moving the picking posts forward, which allowed the machine to pick quicker. The EASYCLEAN destemming system is adapted from there GL Twin bin series.  The benefit of this system is easy to use and set up and requires very little maintenance. Successful tests recently in Australia the USA have seen the new GX9 picking fruit using the destemmer with results of 32 tonnes hectare at a groundspeed of 3.2km. The new machine from Gregoire will give the owner flexibility with choice to pick fruit using the EASYCLEAN destemmer system or convert with a flick of a switch to a normal 4-5 Fan machine.

Features

30 km Auto Drive 

Ο In road mode 30km/h is achievable. The engine RPM is automatically managed according to speed resulting in lower fuel consumption and noise levels. In this mode all 4 wheels are powered for driver comfort and optimal road holding ability.

 

Auto Speed 

Ο AUTOspeed perfectly manages the working speed no matter what the ground conditions are. The dedicated command on the joystick allows the operator to set and retrieve a desired ground speed.

VARIwidth+

Ο  The VARIwidth+ picking head is designed especially for wide trellis. The parallel expansion of the picking-posts always keep the same shape of the picking rod for the best picking result.

Easy Maintenance and Cleaning

Ο Maintenance is an integral part of the typical harvest day and the Gregoire design team have made sure that all aspects of cleaning and maintenance operations are easy. An integrated washing line and separated control box to control harvester functions outside the cabin are all standard.

 

Large Picking Tunnel

Ο A 650mm picking tunnel on the GX9.6 enables the harvester to work in all kinds of vineyard configurations from VSP to a sprawling canopy. 

Conveyor System

Ο Two large 32cm belts forming a continiuos loop that carry the harvest to the top of the machine. The pick will always lay flat on the belts so the fans can remove MOG whilst leaving the juice and berries. The conveyor pulleys are self-tensioning which ensures positive torque on the conveyor belt no matter the load or yield.

High Yield Arm

Ο The GX9.6 come in various configurations but in high yield wide canopies this is the system needed. Fruit falls directly over the top pulleys falling onto a double cross conveyor. This system combined with top fans guarantees removal of MOG before harvest leaves on the stainless steel discharge arm.

Side Arm Easy Clean

Ο The new GX9.6 Easyclean destemmer with side arm is available. Sucessfull testing in Australia and the US has seen results of upto 32 tonne a hectare at 3.2km groundspeed. The simple EASYclean system from Gregoire eliminates 99.8% MOG allowing harvest to go from vine to tank

Lighting

Ο The GX series are equipped with a total of 12 LED lights. With LED technology Gregoire harvesters emit of 18,000 lumens turning night into day!

Large Cabin 

Ο The central position of the cab allows for perfect alignment on the Row. 360 Degrees of glass windows provides perfect visibility to all facets of the harvester. The Cabin is suspended as standard and an optional CAT 4  pressurised cabin is available for spraying. 

Comfort Console

Ο The armrest control fitted to the GX is ergonomically designed to make operation of all functions at your fingertips. A new joystick that can be rotated is designed to perfectly fit your comfort and preference. 

Deutz Engine
