As a young man, Gianni Ferrari, together with his father, Fernando, patented irrigation machines and components such as a ball joint, now known the world over as the “Ferrari joint.” A few years later, in 1957, Gianni designed his first walk-behind tractor and started to devote himself to farming machinery.

Between the 1960s and 1980s, Gianni Ferrari developed a vast range of walk-behind tractors, motor scythe mowers, transporters and tractors, specializing in articulated chassis tractors with equal-sized wheels and 4-wheel drive.

1960 >1980

The Brevini e Bernardelli was established in Gonzaga as a metal structural-work plant for agricultural machinery. In 1979 Claudio Ferrari joined the company and founded the Officine BIEFFEBI, hence the development of equipment (mowers, snow throwers etc.) for power-tillers and tractors.



BIEFFEBI launched the “Fullgreen” line with Rinova Double, its first power-model. Rinova is an innovative machine with an interchangeable aerator/flail mower rotor.


Gianni Ferrari, Franco Maletti and Claudio Ferrari (BIEFFEBI) founded in Reggiolo the GIANNI FERRARI s.r.l. company for the construction of professional lawn mowers.


The GIANNI FERRARI company produced the Turbograss, the first European ZTR (zero turning radius) mower. A few years later the high dump system was introduced and the cutting system was patented with RC™ contrary rotation.


BIEFFEBI started manufacturing lawn mowers with the Play Green model. A unified sales network was created for the sales of medium-small machines bearing the BIEFFEBI trademark, and the bigger models with the GIANNI FERRARI brand.


BIEFFEBI produced the Top Green model, the first ride-on mower in the world with an out-front deck and direct grass collection system.


The Turbo 4 model was launched with the slogan «4-wheel drive and 4 cylinders». This flagship model of the GIANNI FERRARI range is still today the reference point on the market.


The merging of the two companies was completed and GIANNI FERRARI became the sole trademark for the entire range.


The Turbo 6 Flail made the scene as the first lawn mower in the world with a flail cut and 3 independent flail decks for a 3-meter cutting width.


GIANNI FERRARI diversified its own range with the Turboloader, a multi-purpose machine with articulate chassis, four equal-sized driven wheels and a tool-carrier telescopic boom.


All the power and productivity of the Turbo 2-4 meets the utmost comfort with the debut of the Turbo 2-4 CRUISER. The large insulated and suspended cab, heating and air conditioning as standard, along with electronic transmission management make this model extremely comfortable for prolonged use in any weather conditions.


The Turboloader range completes the range over six years with the 3 S, M, and H Series. There is the new optional of the Cab and H440-2S emerges with innovative 4 dual speed transmission wheels.


GIANNI FERRARI launches the most powerful, high-performing model in the already existing Turbo1-2-4 range. The new Turbo4 FIFTY features strengths like a 50 Hp engine, dual speed transmission, and a 1400-litre collector, making this a top-of-the-line machine.


After 7 years of designing, testing, and development, GIANNI FERRARI is starting its own ELECTRIC DEPARTMENT, manufacturing 2 professional fully electric mowers with lithium batteries and different features to meet various operator requirements.
