The VISIOcenter driver cab offers every feature in terms of comfort. Alignment with the row is optimised and 360° vision gives you total control over the surrounding environment. Simple and intuitive to drive, thanks to the large VIEWmaster touch screen, the exclusive MULTIDrive multifunction joystick and the CONTROLmaster lateral control console. You can check all of the machine parameters at a glance, allowing you to concentrate on the harvest. On the ELITE, you also have automated camera management and a display of the filling level for the bins.
The G8.260 ELITE is equipped with the ARC harvester head. Dual pendular suspension and VARlwidth hydraulic toe-in adjustment ensures careful handling of the vine and unrivalled harvesting quality. With 2600mm of sealing, a 650mm wide harvesting tunnel, 320mm of conveyor belts and two large capacity bins. The G8.260 is a machine specially designed for large yields. The G8.260 ELITE is equipped with four fans for an exemplary quality harvest. The on-board Cleantech and Cleantech Vario sorting systems perfect cleaning.
The G8.260 ELITE requires a minimum of maintenance. Daily cleaning can be performed quickly thanks to the large space provided in the harvester head. A large, secure platform, equipped with an offset control console (exclusive to the ELITE), allows daily maintenance of the machine to be carried out with ease. Preparing your machine for winter storage at the end of the season is very simple and inexpensive. The G8.260 ELITE is part of a range of equipment produced by GREGOIRE.
The G8.260 ELITE is a versatile carrier that will be of use throughout the growth cycle of your vines. It can house tools on the front lifting tool holder, and in a rear spraying cell. Thanks to the ISOBUS and TOOLintegration systems, the tools are controlled directly from the cab without adding any accessories, as your holder directly recognises the installed GREGOIRE equipment.
AUTOdrive automatically adapts the engine speed to the ground speed when driving. This integrated management of the engine speed gives the transmission unrivalled flexibility and significantly reduces both consumption and the noise level. The joystick can also be used as a forward drive control.
AUTOspeed is used to perfectly regulate the working speed, regardless of the terrain. It is simple to activate via an easily accessible button on the joystick, allowing you to return quickly to the programmed speed.
Easily accessible, the CONTROLmaster control console means you can monitor all of the settings on your machine. Its simple, intuitive pictograms adapt to whatever tool is connected to the carrier (ISOBUS system), freeing the cab from the need for other bulky controls.
The MULTIdrive joystick (GREGOIRE patented) groups together all of your machine's functions (forward drive, tilt, tools, etc.). The driver can control the harvesting machine with just one hand, and focus on the harvest.
SOFTfloat is a device with pendular suspension on both the harvester head and the feeder channel chassis. It follows the row and the trellis perfectly, ensuring careful handling of the vine for a perfect harvest. Further confirmation that the GREGOIRE harvester head is the most flexible on the market.
With TOOLintegration, GREGOIRE versatile carriers are pre-equipped as standard to be versatile, allowing a GREGOIRE spraying unit or tool to be easily installed. ISOBUS technology allows this equipment to be controlled directly using the existing controls in the cab.
VARIwidth enables the toe-in to be adjusted from the cab. You can adjust the distance between the shakers quickly and easily, ensuring careful handling of the vine and a quality harvest. This adjustment is hydraulic, achieved by tilting the eccentric block, and is simple, reliable and maintenance-free.
VIEWmaster, the largest colour touch screen on the market (13"), groups together all of the information required for monitoring your job. This display makes navigation tasks quick and easy, and can be used to store and extract data and view one of the colour cameras.
VISIOcenter is the most spacious cab on the market. Its central position gives you exceptional 360° vision, perfect alignment on the row and total control of the machine. Its comfort-boosting equipment help keep you safe during long hours of work.
The ARC system harvesting principle ensures high quality harvesting and as yet unrivalled handling of the vine. Its exclusive characteristics give you access to an unlimited range of settings, which translates into quick and easy adaptation to any type of vineyard.
The ECOdrive system, easy to activate from the joystick during manoeuvres, allows a drastic reduction in consumption. Its end of row sequencing, which can be fully configured, reduces the engine speed and helps increase the service life of your machine by conserving use of its components.
ELITE is a performance pack which is fitted onto the range of harvesting machines bearing the same name. It comprises exclusive equipment which will allow you to optimise the use of your GREGOIRE harvesting machine so that you can get the very best from your vines.
AUTOlevel can be accessed from your joystick. Once activated, your machine then automatically adapts to differences in height and difficulties with the terrain. This provides you with greater safety, meaning you can focus your attention on the quality of your harvest.
FLEXspeed automatically manages the shaking frequency when a stake is taken into the harvesting tunnel. Shakers, mechanical components and stakes are all protected. And the service life of your machine is increased.
TEP, the train of pneumatic sealing scales (GREGOIRE patented), perfectly adapts the recall force of the sealing scales to the different types of vine. By adjusting the air pressure in a membrane located underneath the scales, vines can be handled as delicately as possible whilst limiting losses on the ground.
Cleantech is an on-board sorting device combining slow rotation, flexible fingers and plastic mesh to promote optimum separation of the fruit. Identical direction of rotation for the rotor and chain ensures careful handling of the fruit for a perfect harvest.
VARIO is a sorting table which comprises a succession of rollers. It is used to eliminate all the waste remaining in the harvest (petioles, dried fruit, etc). Thanks to its roller speed and distance settings, you can adapt your device to all yields and all fruit.
VINIselect is a sorting table which is used to eliminate all the waste remaining in the harvest (petioles, dried fruit, etc.). Combining vibration and rotation, VINIselect adapts to all types of vines, ensuring a perfect harvest, a byword for quality.
