The unique joystick technology by STIGA gives you maximum control over direction, steering and speed – and a 360º turning radius makes cutting around trees, shrubbery, flower beds and garden ornaments effortless; like a zero-turn mower, but bettered.
Control both blade rotation and traction speed for a fully customisable cut, perfectly suited to the shape, size and condition of your lawn. The STIGA Vehicle Management System communicates automatically with the machine’s traction controllers, independently managing Direct Drive motors in each rear wheel to deliver an instant response, maximum safety and precise trajectory as you mow.
Move the deck to eight cutting positions using the lightweight central lever. Then with STIGA’s Smart Cutting Mode, choose from three blade speed settings: Eco (2.800 rpm) for very frequent mowing of soft grass or if you choose to mulch the grass; Standard (3.000 rpm) for usual, weekly sessions and cuts up to 2.5 cm; and Boost (3.200 rpm) for quicker cuts or thick, taller grass.
Gyro allows you to combine the cutting and driving speed to suit the kind of work to be done on your lawn. You can choose between Standard for your usual cutting sessions; and Performance at 11 km/h for the fastest results. For each of the speeds, Gyro will automatically limit minimum and maximum speeds and apply different acceleration curves – this way, you will always feel in control, regardless of whatever speed you choose.
Thanks to a very well-studied weight distribution and a very low centre of gravity (just 55.3 cm), Gyro gives optimum stability – both for pitch and roll – also on slopes up to 15°. Following STIGA’s tradition of testing beyond industry standards, Gyro is tested to ensure a greater safety margin (up to 32°) in comparison to the suggested use of the machine. Plus, the electronics of the machine automatically manage speed limitations when on slopes, further enhancing its safety.
With its integrated ePower battery pack and 98cm-wide side-discharge cutting deck, the Gyro 500e can mow up to 5,000 square metres on one charge – with minimum noise and vibrations. Use the included fast charger to fully recharge the battery pack in just two hours and 45 minutes.7
