Hi! I've got to replace a dead battery in a Greenfield Fastcut 32 ride-on mower, but can't work out how to release the old battery from its holding strap under the seat. Can anyone please guide me with this? Cheers and thanks!

How to remove front wheel from greenfield ride on

2 answers
Chris4469
Chris4469

On the outside of the front axle/hub there is a little allen screw that holds the wheel collar/retainer to the axle. Once the screw is loosened and the collar removed the wheel 'should' slide off the axle. Problem is it only takes a small amount of rust or a burr on the axle and the hub bearings will not slide over. You will need to get a piece of sandpaper and remove all the rust or burrs from the protruding axle shaft before the hub will slide off. Use a liberal amount of WD40 to help it slide. Sometimes you may need to tap the hub from the other side using a piece of hard wood or whatever you can find to reach the hub. They can be (are usually) a right pain in da butt but persist.

Does anyone know. Is the red warning light (oil pressure) supposed to come on when you switch on the ignition prior to cranking? Greenfield 34 Fast Cut.

I would imagine so. There is no oil pressure until the motor is running.

Thanks. I thought that was the case. I must have a wiring problem.. I'm able to start the engine and it runs without problem.

drive belt keeps shredding on my evolution 2000. any suggestions as to why? cheers

My unit has now done over 500 hours and I replaced the drive belt for the first time at approx 450 hours. My only suggestion is you may be going from forward to reverse too quickly and not allowing the rotors to settle before changing direction.

Chris4469
Chris4469

Check all the pulleys for damage where the belt runs. Make sure they all spin freely and make sure the belt is routed and tensioned correctly and not contacting anything it shouldn't. Sometime something as simple as a stone can get caught. Once the belt starts to fray or gets a nick it won't be long before it shreds.

My greefield keeps stopping about 5 minutes after we start mowing.i have replaced the spark plug done the fuel is good.what do you think?

Chris4469

Sounds like fuel starvation. There is a fuel gauze strainer in the tank (accessible by removing the fuel tap or visually by looking in the tank) and possibly a fuel filter along the fuel line somewhere. Check both are clear and fuel hose is not kinked. Also make sure the airfilter is not dirty and blocked as this will act like a choke and cause the engine to overheat after a short time.

I recently had the alloy deck of my Greenfield 32" Fastcut welded due to all the cuts in it. The local welder did a great job. After about 10hrs of mowing, I again have the same problem and can't keep paying to have it welded. Could anyone advise me of a suitable type of welder to buy (at a reasonable price) so I can do it myself?

I have a 25/42 about 3 years old with 110 hours. I’m finding out more about it and now believe it is one of the 1st one of a very poorly engineered model, particularly where the deck is concerned. I am constantly snapping belts and burning out pulleys. Now I’m having trouble sourcing new blades as I’ve heard greenfield are in administration. Any ideas? Can I change the cutting deck completely for a smaller deck? Will the swing away blades fit?

1 answer
Chris4469
Chris4469

Rick, I'm unsure about switching to a smaller deck. It would appear the chassis is very similar to the smaller models so it could be quite possible. Snapping belts and burning out pulleys could be the result of over tightened belts, that said most belts have automatic tensioning so there may well be a tweek to rectify the issue. I'd recommend talking to a dealer who has experience with Greenfield. Bill Jackson Mowerland have plenty of experience so that maybe a good place to obtain some helpful advice. Good luck.

Fastcut Twin Briggs & Stratton 17.5-32

I bought a new Greenfield 32 Fastcut and the mower just didn't start. I found out that the solenoid needs replacing but there are no spare parts anywhere in Australia It has to come from overseas. Why are there no spare parts available when it's supposed to be an Australian company?

Australian company making the mower but the workings (things that make it go) of the mower are probably all made overseas EG Briggs and Stratton engine. I find it very unusual that a brand new mower wouldn't start and needed a solenoid replaced. Maybe the dealer you purchased it from should have scavenged a solenoid from another new mower to get you going - very poor customer relations.

Chris4469

I can't imagine that the solenoid would not be available. Just about any aftermarket 12v starter solenoid should work and just about all mower repair shops should know this. Try Bill Jacksons Mowerland Bris. (07) 3355 9222

Thank you for your advice and comments. You've been most helpful! I discovered that the starter solenoid is available in Australia as it is a generic part which fits a number of other ride-ons, but the fuel solenoid that's required is in fact a Briggs & Stratton part which is made in the US and is not readily available in Australia - It has to be ordered from overseas. Still can't believe that these spare parts aren't available in Oz as there are so many mowers with Brigs & Stratton motors. Thanks again.

Fastcut Twin Briggs & Stratton 17.5-32

G’day. Was using the battery on the mower to run the air compressor to pump up a tire. As I was using it the seat fell and I noticed smoke coming out near the battery and also from under the hood. Now when starting the engine will turn over enough but will not fire. Do you think this could now be a spark plug issue or something more like the electrics? Any help appreciated cheers.

Unless you have a special "puller" take it to the dealer you purchased it from. The wheel is attached to the axle like the steering wheel on a car. Assuming you wish to change the tube (flat tyre) this can be done with the wheel on with a little bit of care and trouble.
