580 HY StarGate


Motor mower with new continuously variable transmission (CVT) and PowerSafe® hydraulic clutch.


With the 580 HY StarGate the new era for FERRARI multifunctional motor mowers has begun!

The new, completely redesigned, transmission opens up the approach to the machine with hydrostatic drive for a wide pool of users: from hobby farmers to professional farmers, and from individuals to the greenery caretaker.

In addition, the new driving position makes using the professional motor mowers for mowing grass and greens maintenance even easier, more intuitive and comfortable.

HY | Continuously variable transmission

The user of the 580 HY StarGate motor mower is given an advantage by the continuously variable transmission (CVT), especially in case of terrain that is irregular, sloping, when manoeuvring around obstacles and in general in cases where machine speed and direction are often changed.

The manoeuvre does not require any action on the clutch and gear levers, it simply requires adjustment of the EasyGrip lever positioned on the handlebar without releasing the driving handlebars for greater comfort in total safety.

Motocoltivatori Sicurezza

Continuously variable transmission (CVT).

StarGate hydrostatic transmission

Greater comfort in total safety.

With hydrostatic transmission, the forward speed can be changed continuously and independently, both from the PTO as well as from the engine’s rotation speed.

The work conditions are thus more relaxed and comfortable, especially in difficult operational situations and during manoeuvres.
