New technologies and connectivity mark an exciting era in the vineyard industry. GREGOIRE offers the GL8.6, a harvester specifically designed to use the latest technology available but retaining the key values of the brand which are picking quality, ease of use and low maintenance cost. 

The GL8.6 is designed to work in vineyards with minimum row spacing of 1.6 metres. Notably,  the GL8.6 can be used to harvest your grapes and then utilised during other periods of the year as the tractor base can be equipped with a front tool carrier for trimming / pruning, or used as a dedicated spraying unit by employing the machine’s ISOBUS functionality. 

GREGOIRE GL8.6 brings major innovations that are already recognised and rewarded by the industry with AUTOpinch, NEOmap and EASYpilot. The GL models are a compact and versatile series of self-propelled harvesters. 

The GL8.6 is equipped with a Deutz 6-cylinder engine that requires No AdBlue or DPF (Tier 3). These engines deliver impressive power and optimised fuel efficiency even in the most trying conditions (harvesting and spraying). The GL series is equipped with an automatic engine rpm management; depending on demand (e.g. running tools, vehicle speed, machine load) engine rpm will adapt automatically to always supply the necessary power. This smart management program guarantees precise and controlled fuel consumption, reduced noise levels and optimised machine reactivity.






Steering & Turning Radius

Ο The new steering system allows precise and perfect manoeuvrability even in the most restricted areas. Vision is not compromised as the steering system is fitted without a steering beam.


Ο The GL offers an exclusive forward speed management. Speed can be adjusted in three different ways
(by 0.2 km/h impulse - acceleration - creep mode)

30 km/h AUTOdrive 

Ο In road mode a new maximum speed of 30km/h is achievable. In this mode all four wheels are powered for driver comfort and optimal road holding ability.


ARC picking head 

Ο Smooth picking and respect to the vineyard are most important. The Gregoire ARC picking head achieves this with a double swinging pendulum system. This means both the conveyers and suspended picking head swing to follow the vine minimising damage to vine and vineyard to guarantee a high level of pick.


Automatic Slope Correction

Ο The GL series are equipped with the latest generation of automatic slope management allowing fast correction and higher reactivity with up to 600mm of movement.



Ο Let there be light! The GL series harvesters are equipped with a total of 12 LED lights to guarantee vision and safer night time work. With LED technology Gregoire harvesters emit of 18,000 lumens.  

Large Bin Capacity 

Ο As a twin bin solution the GL8 lateral stainless steel bins offer the largest storage with 4000 litre capacity.


Large Picking Tunnel

Ο A 650mm picking tunnel on the GL8 enables the harvester to work in all kinds of vineyard configurations, from VSP to a sprawling canopy. 

Fast Fit Rods

Ο The Fast FIT system enables quick mounting and an easy curve adjustment of the picking rod. The number of rods can be easily changed and positioned depending on the fruit zone of the vine.


Deutz Engine

Ο The GL8.6 harvester is equipped with a high performance Tier 3 178 hp Deutz engine that requires no AdBlue. Gregoire together with Deutz have tuned this engine to deliver the best efficiencies.

Large Cabin

Ο A centrally mounted ROPS certified cabin gives the operator optimum vison of the vineyard and working areas at all times. The cabin is mounted on “Hydro Silent-Block” cab suspension which reduces vibrations, thereby enhancing driver comfort. 

Comfort Console with armrest control

Ο The armrest control fittest to the Gregoire GL series is intuitive and easy to use with push button operation. Fitted at the end of the armrest is the large 12" touch screen, the I-Monitor. The I-Monitor displays all harvester data clearly in colour; if any settings needed to be changed this can be done using the touch screen.




Ο EASYpilot automatically centers the harvester on the vine row without driver input. Using a 3D telemetric camera, EASYpilot works, no matter the season. It works with multi-function tools, harvesting or spraying, day or night. As opposed to a GPS guided system, EASYpilot can be use in a vineyard not covered by a GPS signal. Perfect centering on the row is a guarantee of optimal picking quality


Ο EASYturn reduces the steering wheel revolutions from lock to lock. This enables you to turn around quicker in the headlands. Combined with EASYpilot, steering on the GL & GX is quick, smooth and provides a perfect row following.


Ο GL & GX are equipped with two cameras. The 360° camera (option) shows on an additional color screen to provide a complete overhead view of the machine and its surroundings. EASY360 removes all blind spots and provides confidence to the operator during headland, bin dumping and loading maneuvers.
