STIGA Gyro – changing the game in mowing experience.

Gyro is powered by STIGA eMotion Technology, a unique electronic system developed to effortlessly govern direction, steering and speed.  The mower offers an extremely precise joystick, mounted on the armrest, which controls the vehicle, allowing it to turn on a sixpence…guaranteeing an enjoyable ride and taking lawn mowing to a whole new level.

STIGA cutting excellence – agility, control, and precision, meet safety and comfort

The precision control and 360° turning radius facilitates mowing particularly close to the edges along bushes or lawns while simultaneously ensuring the best-possible visibility over the broader mowing area.

Gyro offers the option to select variable speeds for both mowing and driving modes. With three blade speeds to choose from, the user can adapt the mowing performance to the desired conditions and conveniently adjust the mowing deck directly from the driver’s seat.

The robust chassis and sophisticated design provide Gyro excellent stability and balance, even when operating on slopes or uneven surfaces, resulting in a safe and comfortable ride. Designed with the needs of even the most discerning users in mind, Gyro offers maximum operating and driving comfort, ergonomic design, safety and proven, convincing efficiency.

The synergy between ePower, eMotion and STIGA Direct Drive motors creates a unique combination of proven technologies and compelling innovations to take lawn mowing to a whole new level. Each rear wheel is driven by a self-contained electric motor, for easier handling and greater driving precision.

This is what lawnmowers will be like in the future and is available now.  Gyro establishes a completely new category of battery-powered sit-on mowers for challenging areas, unbeatable productivity that are not just fun but comfortable to drive too” says Gary Whitney, managing director of STIGA UK.

STIGA Gyro 500e and 700e are available now from STIGA dealerships with retail prices starting from £7,511
