Spartan reveals 3 new mowers

“For the last year, we’ve been focused on bringing new models to market that better suit the wants and needs of our customers,” said John Swanson, general manager at Intimidator Group. “We’re excited to release three new machines that will do just that by expanding our lineup with two entry-level mowers and a new take on one of our bestsellers.”

New to Spartan’s lineup is the RZ-HD Blackout, a combination of the popular RZ-HD and the stealthy KGZ-XD Blackout. This model is covered with black powder coating and features a new decal package, a custom blackout suspension seat, and blacked out 24×12 rear radial tires. Available in a 54 or 61-inch deck with a 23-horsepower Kawasaki engine, the RZ-HD Blackout adds another level of style to Spartan’s mid-lineup.

Scheduled for release later in the spring are the new Spartan Shield and Defender models. The Shield offers 48 and 54-inch decks with a 23-horsepower Kawasaki engine, and 20-inch Carlisle Turf Armor rear tires. As the entry-level model for Spartan’s signature seven-gauge steel decks, the Defender offers three cutting widths of 48, 54, and 60 inches as well as three engine options with power ranging from 22 to 24 horses.

Along with the lineup additions, Spartan has added several upgrades to existing models for increased durability and performance. All 2024 RZ, RT, SRT, and KGZ-XD models now feature magnetic pin height adjustments, upgraded spindles, and redesigned pulley covers. Replacing the rotary height-of-cut system with the magnetic pin height adjustment—as well as improving the correlation between the blade height and pin system settings—ensures a consistent, true height of cut.
