Spartan Mowers recently revealed its latest product lineup, which includes upgrades to all 2024 models along with the addition of three brand-new units: the Shield, the Defender, and the RZ-HD Blackout.

“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.”

Scheduled for release later in the spring, the Shield and Defender models were designed with value, performance, and comfort in mind. 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.

Also new to the lineup is the RZ-HD Blackout, a combination of the popular RZ-HD and the stealthy KGZ-XD Blackout. True to its name, this model is covered with black powder coating and features a new decal package, a custom blackout suspension seat, and blacked out 24x12 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.

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.

“Our team is definitely proud of this year’s mower lineup,” said Andrew McFarland, Product Marketing Manager for Spartan Mowers. “We listened to our customers and dealers and were able to release several upgraded features that will benefit them.”

The complete 2024 Spartan Mowers lineup includes the Shield, Defender, RZ-Pro, RZ-HD, RZ- HD Blackout, RT-Pro, RT-HD, SRT-XDe, SRT-XD, and the KGZ-XD. Mowers are only sold through independent dealers within Spartan’s authorized network. In addition to standard features on some models, accessories and upgrades are also available for increased comfort, functionality, and style.
