OPTI-GRAPE™: PREMIUM QUALITY GRAPES: The award winning Opti-Grape™ system available on BRAUD 9000M and 9000L harvesters is aimed at removing as much MOG as possible from the harvested grapes. It is a premium system aimed at wine growers who demand the highest possible harvest quality. The Opti-Grape system delivers up to five times better cleaning performance by means of a unique, air cushioned cleaning surface. As a result, the wine making process from the vineyard to the cellar is also enhanced, allowing growers to achieve a higher quality, more profitable harvest.
HIGH-COMFORT SEAT: Fully adjustable, the standard high comfort seat offers high levels of support and excellent shock load protection.
MESH CLEANER: In crops where large individual grapes are likely to lodge in the cleaning mesh, a cleaner can be specified. This pushes through the mesh, keeping it free of any blockages.
HIGH-CAPACITY CONVEYORS: The high-capacity conveyors are wider for better product distribution on the conveyors. As a result, the cleaning fans remove impurities more effectively. With BRAUD 9000L, 9000M and 9090X harvesters, you get better productivity and a cleaner product sample.
SIMPLE PICKING HEAD IMPLEMENTS: One person can remove the picking head, without special tools, in 10 minutes. All hydraulic and electrical connections are grouped together for easy access.
TOP GRAPE QUALITY: The Opti-Grape™ system has been specifically designed to maximize harvest cleanliness. It is intended for wineries and cellars targeting low- to middle-yielding grapes. A pre-sorter takes only the bunch of grapes and puts them into the destemmer. The MOG separation process is controlled by an air cushioned surface, generated by a rotary turbine blowing air through a fine mesh grid.
GAIN IN QUALITY, GAIN IN PRODUCTIVITY: The evolution destemmer is positioned so it does not compromise the hopper capacity. It has a high throughput for optimum productivity.
TIGHT TURN RADIUS: With a 90° turn angle, BRAUD 9000L and 9000M harvesters have the tightest turn radius on the market. The standard Soft Shift system automatically monitors wheel speed and manages oil flow to the traction motors. Power is always diverted to the wheel with the best grip, boosting traction and safety in difficult conditions.
OUTSTANDING IMPURITY ELIMINATION: The evolution destemmer eliminates on average 20% more harvest impurities than the system employed in previous generation models. An advanced trap removes the majority of stalks, leaves and MOG—material other than grapes. A dedicated MOG transfer auger discharges this material to the ground.
PRE-PRUNER MP 122 PROVITIS: The MP122 features a pre-pruning head with two disc modules equipped with multiple cutting blades. The working height ranges from 19 to 39 inches.
FRONT TOOL CARRIER: The front implement carrier attaches to the harvester quickly and easily. Operators can attach implements, including a trimmer, pre-pruner and leaf-remover, with fully integrated control via the IntelliView™ touch screen. The implement carrier telescopically adjusts both horizontally and vertically to suit the implements. It can be set to move away from the cab during a turn.
ALL-YEAR PRODUCTIVITY.: The base unit is designed to be used all year round, from pre-pruning to grape harvesting. To achieve this, we developed a patented system to couple and uncouple the picking head and a front tool carrier that can be fitted with implements.
MORE POWER. MORE PERFORMANCE.: The BRAUD 9000L Series and BRAUD 9000M Series are powered by ultra-efficient FPT Industrial 4- or 6-cylinder common rail electronic engines. Outputs range from 141 to 175 horsepower (CV).
REMOTE CAMERA READY: Harvesters are fitted with two cameras and you can add a third to enhance visibility and your view of machine functions. Images are displayed on a dedicated color monitor that fits to the top of the IntelliView screen.
LESS WATER AND TIME: The picking head is designed for easy cleaning. Wash time has been reduced by up to 30%. A semi-automatic wash system is available which further reduces wash times and reduces water consumption by up to 30%.
QUIETER AND MORE COMFORTABLE.: Step up into the superb BRAUD cab. You will find it has been designed to fit you perfectly. BRAUD 9000L, 9000M and 9090X harvester cabs are fully suspended and sound-proofed for a smoother, more comfortable drive. Pressurized, heated and air-conditioned, the cabs are designed to offer optimum comfort and protection during harvest, spraying and other operations. Noise levels are reduced by 3 dBA compared to previous harvesters in like conditions.
600-HOUR SERVICE INTERVAL: The BRAUD 9000L and 9000M Series is redesigned to minimize maintenance time and costs. The FPT Industrial common rail engine doesn’t need its first service until 600 hours. Less downtime. More productive working time.
REVERSIBLE FUNCTIONALITY: When the Opti-Grape™ system is not required, its rotational direction can be reversed from the cab without any additional adjustments, to direct all harvested crop directly into the hoppers.
ARMREST CONTROLS: Integrated into the fully adjustable armrest, the ”all-in-one” multi-function lever controls travel speed and direction, manual leveling, the harvesting head, as well as multi-function implements. Two sets of nine buttons to the right of the armrest can be allocated to control multi-function implements.
MODERN FUELS & WATER ECONOMY: All engines in the BRAUD 9000L and 9000M Series are engineered to run on 100% biodiesel (subject to conditions). A semi-automatic wash system reduces water consumption by up to 30%.
ADJUSTABLE SETTINGS: You can adjust the turbine speed generating the air flow from the cab using the IntelliView™ III monitor. A performance evaluation kit, supplied as part of the Opti-Grape™ system, enables the driver to sample the impurities rejected. As a result, the driver can adjust their own sorting parameters, depending on the harvest conditions, the grape variety, and also according to their own sorting expectations.
IMS - INTELLIGENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM: In work, IMS will constantly monitor the demand on the engine. In light load conditions, or at the end of a row when the operator switches off the shakers and fans, IMS will vary the engine speed to precisely match demand but with no impact upon performance. This saves fuel, with no need for any operator input.
IMPURITY SELECTION: The air cushion surface enables a wide range of impurities of all shapes and all sizes to be removed, such as petioles, stalks, bits of leaves, wood, stems, etc. It is also effective at removing dry and moldy fruit, and also botrytized fruit which may be present during difficult harvest conditions.
RTS ROW TRACKING SYSTEM: Night harvesting is easy for the operator with the Row Tracking System. You can specify RTS with New Holland GPS guidance to automatically track the worked rows. Worked rows are displayed on the IntelliView™ screen, enabling the operator to quickly identify the rows to be harvested. You can store work data on a USB memory stick for traceability.
STORAGE SPACE: Attention to design detail includes improved in-cab storage positions. A fold-down laptop table, coat hook and elastic stowage net are standard.
AUTOMATIC HEIGHT AND LEVELING: The system automatically controls the height and the leveling. Once the operator sets the desired picking head height, it is maintained automatically. Sensors prevent the picking head from making contact with the ground in difficult terrain.
PRECISE CRUISE CONTROL: Working in conjunction with the true ground speed radar, the electronically controlled hydrostatic pump and IMS system enable the operator to set and maintain a constant harvest speed. The system also accommodates changes in terrain.
LOWER HOPPERS, RAISED DISCHARGE: The hoppers are redesigned to lower the center of gravity, for improved stability and improved traction. The hopper discharge height has been increased by 9.8 inches. Furthermore, you can empty both hoppers at the same time.
INTELLIVIEW™ III. PLUG AND PLAY ISO BUS COMPATIBILITY: The IntelliView™ III in-cab display has a touchscreen interface to make setting machine functions faster and simpler. You can customize pages to suit your specific operations. The system offers full ISO BUS control so you can use your IntelliView screen to operate a range of compatible equipment, including sprayers and multi-function implements. This eliminates the need for separate controls and reduces the time to switch between jobs.
NIGHT WORK: Double cab work lights and two additional LED lights to the front and rear of the picking head provide superb illumination in low light conditions. An additional LED light kit for intensive night operations is available.
REDUCED AND SIMPLIFIED MAINTENANCE: BRAUD harvesters have been redesigned to minimize maintenance time and costs. Advanced materials, sealed bearings and a smoother conveyor path make looking after these harvesters less expensive and more straightforward. The sliding pads last two to three times longer, depending on working conditions. Destemmer maintenance materials require less frequent replacement.
BERTHOUD CO-DESIGN: Berthoud spraying equipment*, co-designed with BRAUD New Holland, attaches in around 10 minutes, with full touchscreen operation via the IntelliView™ III monitor. * The use of a sprayer requires the operator to wear specific and appropriate personal protective equipment. Observe the manufactures safety instructions for the use of pesticides, and also the operating instructions for personal safety equipment.
SDC SHAKING SYSTEM: The BRAUD SDC is recognized as the best picking system, period. Each shaking rod is independent and hinged at the rear on a maintenance-free flexible fixation. This fixation allows perfect control of the shaker action, with maximum flexibility, for gentle picking. You can quickly and easily activate or deactivate the shaking rods according to the fruit-bearing zone.
DESTEMMER EVOLUTION.: BRAUD 9000L and 9000M models as well as Braud 9090X two-hopper models can be fitted with a SOCMA patent evolution destemmer. Fitted on the top of each hopper, the system delivers outstanding harvest quality.
NORIA COLLECTION NOW EVEN BETTER: At New Holland BRAUD, respect for the vine and grapes is a design priority. The proven NORIA system, with its polyurethane baskets, ensures the most gentle treatment of the vines and harvested crop, without ground losses. The life of the sliding pads is increased by two to three times.
TRIMMER ST 120 PROVITIS: Adjustable cutting bars with 16.9-inch rotary blades rotate at 2000 rpm. Choose a one-row model or a model with one row plus two half rows, with cutting heights of 48, 60, and 69 inches.
OUTSTANDING FUEL ECONOMY: The common rail electronic engines and IMS Intelligent Management System offer outstanding fuel economy with an average of 35% fuel savings.
CENTRALIZED GREASING: To facilitate and reduce maintenance, all harvester head grease points are grouped at a single point. Automatic greasing is also available.
LEAF REMOVER LR 350 PROVITIS: The LR 350 leaf remover frame is composed of two leaf removing heads. Each head follows the plane of vegetation and offers hydraulic width adjustment.
CROP DISTRIBUTOR: A specially designed crop distributor, combined with two infrared level sensors, allows for complete and efficient filling of the hopper. The hoppers are redesigned, with either 687 gallon (2600L) or 845 gallon (3200L) capacities, with a lower center of gravity, and an integrated top fan exhaust to the rear to reduce the spread of dust around the harvester. NOTE: The Opti-Grape™ system is available on BRAUD 9000M and 9000L harvesters only.
HYDROSTATIC TRANSMISSION: A hydrostatic transmission delivers enhanced traction and improved performance in demanding terrain. Anti-skid automatically manages drive to the wheels for optimum performance on slopes and in wet soil conditions.
