A turning circle of 3.60 m with the compact steering of the G7.200
This record-setting turning circle allows the new GRÉGOIRE G7.200 to offer unparalleled manoeuvrability.
The steering system is inspired by that of the GRÉGOIRE G4 (high clearance tractors for narrow vineyards).
The advantages are the following:
- Perfect visibility at the front of the machine: the driver has an unhindered view of the front wheels, the upper part of the row being worked, the entrance to the collection tunnel, and even the front implement (in the case of multi-purpose use).
- Soft and effortless steering: the steering control is effortless and particularly flexible. This allows for high-precision manoeuvrability.
- Exceptional handling: the rocker-free steering system also provides the G7.200 with excellent manoeuvrability. With a turning circle of less than 3.60 m, the tractor can even be easily manoeuvred in the most compact and difficult plots. Even "sharp corners" are rendered more accessible, thus preventing loss of time during work activities.
- Strength and durability: finally, the kinematics of the front wheels allows the operator to change directions with no need to slow down at the end of the row (if the topography permits). The manoeuvring times are optimised, and the work site's potential is significantly increased.
Together with the central GRÉGOIRE cabin, the new rocker-free steering system renders the G7.200 exceptional manoeuvrable.
GRÉGOIRE among the award recipients at the OENOVIDEO-PRO 2015 film festival
In late October, the OENOVIDEO-PRO 2015 film festival selection committee met to view and evaluate the films submitted to the competition. The Committee awarded the Initiative Entreprise special mention to the film "24h de vendange GRÉGOIRE (24 hours of Grégoire grape harvesting)".The awards ceremony will take place during the next SITEVI exhibition in Montpellier. The film describes the achievement of the harvesting record during the 2014 grape harvest.
For those who don't recall, following 24 hours of work activities, during which the darkness and the rain put a significant strain on the teams' morale, a G8.270 'ÉLITE set a series of exceptional records:24 hours of non-stop harvesting, 11.7 L/h (9.8 L/ha) consumed, 28.28 hectares harvested, equal to 1.18 ha/h at an average of 6.5 km/h.
This film, which lasts 10 minutes, was created by Bruno Boucard and produced by GRÉGOIRE. The film's protagonists are the teams of the Boinaud company and GRÉGOIRE. Filmed in Bois d'Angeac, at the distillery's historic location in Charente, 25 people collaborated for 24 hours non-stop to achieve a record grape harvest. All this served as a confirmation of the characteristics of GRÉGOIRE materials (reliability, durability, and low usage costs), while at the same time highlighting our innovations (driving comfort, motor efficiency, and ease of adjustments).
