    Battery keeps going flat - is that normal?

    published

    Hi,

    This is a great heavy-duty mower - except for one thing - despite regular use the battery keeps going flat in the machine.. I am pretty sure the battery is not supposed to go flat if you are using the machine regularly. The guy I bought it off changed the battery but that hasn't helped.. Bit disappointing. I am presuming I will be able to get it fixed under warranty... I am hoping Greenfield will be able to help out and explain how I get it fixed..

    Excellent machine

    published

    Very happy with my machine as will mow anything and the result is amazing. Comfortable, quick and easy to maintain. A solidly built machine that is more expensive than alternatives but worth the money. Do not expect to ever own anything else to do my lawns. I refuel every third mow and is heavy on fuel due to its power, but the motor does not have to work hard it does it all easily.

    Lasted 6 hours total - Stay Away

    published

    I bought one of these brand new, used it once through tough grass and it did really well. Cleaned it and 2 weeks later used it again. This time mowing the short grass that I had left after the first time it caught on fire and burnt down to nothing before myself and the neighbour could get it out. I told the dealer and Greenfield. The dealer was rude and Greenfield showed little interest and with no investigation and without asking any real questions about what happened said it was grass on the deck so no warranty.

    I will not go Greenfield again based on Service alone without even questioning what caught on fire.

    Buyer beware

    published

    Potential new owners should know about dealer only service availability.
    I had the experience of a seized pulley. I rang the dealer who is over an hours drive away and was told that it would be more than 3 weeks before they could even look at my mower. So I took it to my local mower shop which was not a Greenfield agent and was told they could fix it but NO, their account for parts at Greenfield was cancelled as only Greenfield dealers can now get parts. Beware of this as and there can be long long wait with a small dealer network. On my personal approach to Greenfield was told that it was only a new decision.

    Solid machine but the overall finish needs improvement. Perhaps not worth the money.

    Not happy Jan

    published

    18 months old 150 hours and have got the same problem as most of the unhappy greenfield owners. Gets stuck going forward and have to kick it into reverse to get it to stop. Obviously a recurrent problem. Oh, also told its not under warranty. Listen to your customers GREENFIELD. Also broke the join on the foot peddle this arvo :-(. If you could put the drive system of a cox on this machine it would be awesome.

    Incredible

    published

    After much research bit the bullet and paid for Aussie made quality. This mower runs over tall grass as if mowing a lawn. Once you get used to the forward/reverse action on the pedal it is highly manoeuvreable. Motor is a gem and nothing stops it. Only issue is that the left front wheel rubs on the support wheel for the cutting deck and stretches the tyre when turning. If turning left to mulch cut grass it leads to punctures, so make sure you have a spare wheel! Current model has a 5 cm longer chassis to remove the issue. After sales service has been great.

    My family have had these Greenfield type for years they just keep going ang going.
    It was a bit more than I wanted to pay but I thought i Would bite the bullet and give this little aussie champion a go. And blow me down it's no slow go.
    first time in years we have had grass like this but it knocks it down.
    - Sold mower two years later too much trouble
    I brought a V20 Twin Kawaka and man does this Kill my old american mower "heap of ----" for performance and cutting. I mow 2 good acres and 10 "out back" acres last two with heavy hill work. I think it is the only ride on with a lockable diff for hill work. Completely WOW!
    Was not a dealer in my area.

    Don't Damage your Greenfields Mower

    published

    I recently damaged my mower by running over some large stones. This caused the cutter deck to warp and also bent the cutter disk and spindle. Since the replacement cutter disk and spindle are apparently sold as 1 unit, the local dealer had to acquire and replace this unit and the deck. The cutter deck is cast iron so it does not rust. The down side is that it cannot be hammered back into shape. Try in excess of $1200.00 to repair the mower. I do not wish to amend my favourable earlier review but purchasers should be aware that structural repairs may not be as cheap or as easy as with mowers with a steel cutter deck and components that are not bundled.

    V Twin Deluxe Series

    I have a Greenfield Fastcut 34 and have managed to put the blades through the alloy deck twice. Am very dissapointed with the flimsy alloy deck and am surprised an optional steel deck isn't available for the 34. I can fix it, but am worried about future breakage. What are my alternatives???
    Hope someone can help resolve this shortfall in the weak alloy decks.

    Cheers John!

    I have exactly the same problem. My Greenfield 34 inch alloy deck developed a small within the first 30 hours. The dealer patched this with a small plate, but this temporary fix failed and the small hole has now expanded to a huge and dangerous hole. It just cannot handle roots and rocks. Pretty disappointing for a mower that sells itself as being designed for tough Australian conditions.

    Hi Murray, Thanks for your post. I to have had to bolt on several plates to hold the deck together. I cannot see the sense in replacing my deck with the same deck. I may have to opt for the smaller 32" deck replacement (heavy duty steel) and put with having to do several more cuts to make up for the loss of the 2" decrease in deck size. I will however put up with the 34" until it becomes a danger to use. Hope yours doesn't get as bad as mine. Good luck... John!

    I have had my deck welded up successfully. There is also a guy, advertising on Gumtree who will fabricate any mower deck in steel. His greenfield deck (advertised at $550) looks good in his add. He is in Queensland so freight may add a little to the cost.
