780 HY StarGateNew
Reversible two-wheel tractor with new continuously variable transmission (CVT) and PowerSafe® hydraulic clutch.
With the 780 HY StarGate model, the new era of the BCS multifunctional two-wheel tractors 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 two-wheel tractor, both with rear and front attachments, even easier, more intuitive and comfortable.
HY | Continuously variable transmission
The user of the 780 HY StarGate two-wheel tractor 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.

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.
PowerSafe® hydraulic clutch.
PowerSafe® hydraulic clutch
Unique and inimitable.
The exclusive PowerSafe® clutch with hydraulically-operated multiple steel disc in oil bath, not only guarantees maximum reliability but also greater operational comfort, safety and high performance in any conditions of use.
