Pre Season Maintenance

With cherry season fast approaching, it’s time to get your AirJet® grader in perfect working order for day one of the cherry season. To help prepare for the season, GP Graders are pleased to offer a Pre Season Maintenance (PSM) service.

Our highly skilled technicians will conduct the PSM to ensure all hardware, electronics and software is checked and up to date to have you “ready to roll” the day the first cherries arrive into your facility.

The PSM is an insurance policy you cannot afford to be without.

What’s included in Pre Season Maintenance?

GP Graders mechanical and electrical Service Technicians will carry out a comprehensive and detailed service of your AirJet® grader, including system start up, fault checking, calibration, software updates and part replacements. It is critical in the pre-season for your sorting machine and fruit grader to be ready for the rigours of a successful season.

Operator training

An intensive two-day training seminar for system users will be held at our training facilities prior to the start of cherry season. Operators will be trained on programme set up, fault diagnosis and all the features the AirJet® software provides. On conclusion of the training, an examination will be undertaken where successful students receive an Accreditation Certificate. Being an expert in the features of a sorting machine such as the AirJet® will enable greater flexibility and ensure that you are conducting first-class risk management.
