VersaGuard MAX Console

David Jackson | Features | August 23, 2021

Spartan Mowers and the all-new VersaGuard MAX Console puts you in complete control of your machine like never before. This technology represents a huge leap forward for the outdoor power equipment industry, and sets a new standard of features, performance, and integration for outdoor power equipment.


Features include a solid-state PTO switch that exceeds 250,000 cycles, a keyless push-to-start ignition switch, a large multifunction LCD screen, patented SoftStart clutch control, and integrated accessory switches to control deck lift motors or any other high-current accessories. 


Key Features, Benefits, and Advantages:


1. KEYLESS PUSH-TO-START with PERSONALIZED KEY CODE

Enter a unique 4 digit code and start the mower with a simple push of a button - with no key to lose and no cheap plastic tumbler to wear out or break. VersaGuard offers consistent, reliable starting. Each mower comes with a factory code that can be personalized to a code that only the owner/operator of the mower knows. This is a theft deterrent and also gives control to the owner for who has access to use the mower.  


2. PATENTED SOFTSTART CLUTCH CONTROL

This feature greatly improves the engagement of electric clutches. It also decreases engine RPM drop on engagement, decreases mechanical wear, and significantly increases deck belt life. The soft start features a solid-state PTO and sends electronic pulsation to the clutch when engaging the PTO.


3. LARGE MULTI-FUNCTION LCD

The VersaGuard’s easy-to-read screen displays up to 5 service alarms, and can also display fuel levels for 1 or 2 fuel tanks. 


4. MAINTENANCE REMINDERS AND ALERTS VIA ULTRA-BRIGHT STATUS LEDs

Instead of having to rely on keeping up with what needs maintenanced and when, let the VersaGuard Control Panel keep everything organized for you. LEDs can be assigned to safety interlocks like the seat switch, neutral safety switch, and parking brake, or to inputs like oil pressure, battery voltage or engine temperature. The panel alerts the operator to potentially dangerous or damaging conditions. You will be alerted for oil changes, low oil notices, tachometer to monitor engine performance, volt meter to monitor engine output, signaling both low and high output for operator assurance.


5. SOLID-STATE PTO

An industry first, this unique PTO design eliminates electrical contacts for the longest cycle life available in the outdoor power industry. This design eliminates arcing and has no contacts to corrode and fail. 


6. NEW ON/OFF BUTTONS

Every Spartan mower harness is pre-wired for easy plug in of two accessories such as light kits, deck lifts, electric discharge chutes, sprayer, etc. Convenience buttons on the control panel are in place to easily activate up to two of these additional accessories.


7. LEAVE ENGINE RUNNING WHILE OFF

This feature allows you to set safety features (blades off, handles out, brake on) and get off the mower while leaving your engine running. This is helpful when you need to get off to pick up debris. A premium feature of the control panel is if you did leave the seat with handles out, brake on, but forgot to turn the blades off, only the blades will shut down and not the entire mower. 

 

8. PANEL TOGGLE OPTIONS

You can now toggle between the engine hour meter and mower deck hour meter by pressing the hourglass button. How convenient!


9. CLOCK AND JOB TIMER

The VersaGuard Control Panel features a handy clock display, as well as a job timer. These easy to read LED displays keep you on track and on time. 


10. WARRANTY

Last but certainly not least is our 3 full year parts and labor warranty. We also provide a lifetime warranty on the PTO. Spartan builds what we sell, and we stand behind everything we sell. This provides the owner with a peace of mind and a confidence that should anything go wrong, our dealers are here to take care of you, the customer.
