Are you sure your new belt is the proper length A quarter inch too long could make it slip. Something to try is spray your belt with belt dressing and see if that helps That will help stop it from slipping.I had to do that with one of mine when my belt was not the right size. I shot spray about once a week one summer.

SOURCE: Have a Greenfield Evolution 2000

The Greenfield clutch (drive belt) is adjusted by spring pressure pulling a long rod that has serations on it. Either the belt has run out of adjustment (= new belt needed) or the adjuster has stuck. Lift up the seat and push the adjusting rod that has a big spring attached to see if you can move it towards the front. Look at the pulley beside the rod, if the belt has stretched too far, the pulley will be hard up against its slot. The pulley moves towards the front to tighten the belt. I just push with my leg to get another "click" out of the adjusting rod. New belts are cheap too.

SOURCE: I replaced both belts on

Likely the belt is mispositioned or somehow in a bind.

My swisher25hp-60 in.cut barely moves going forward


Was it working correctly earlier or is this your initial operation?

According to the product manual for "loss of drive":
1. Bypass linkages in the bypass position
2. Hydro belt worn, damaged, or broken
3. Idler spring loose or broken

1. Make sure that the bypass linkages are in
the drive or engaged position. Located at
the rear of the machine. Refer to decal on
the rear of the unit.
2. Replace Hydro belt.
3. Replace Idler spring

My MTD 12.5 hp briggs and stratton ride on mower is losing forward speed as though a clutch is slipping especially going up hills or slopes. MIKE


You didn't indicate what model so I don't know if it is hydrostatic drive or not. If it is not hydrostatic drive, it is most likely a worn belt or clutch adjustment. If you don't have your manual you can download one here:http://www.mtdlawnmowerparts.com/manuals.php
If it is hydrostatic drive it stil could be the drive belt or low water in hydrostatic transmission, or even water in the oil in the hydrostatic transmission. Always list model number when asking questions.

Cutting deck on greenfield evolution mower will not disengage


Usually this is caused by badly worn belt or incorrect type of belt fitted, check allignment, tension, belt size should be marked as A... not 13A..... if marked as the latter it is an "automotive" type belt not suited to "slipping" when belt loosened to disengage cutter. Check also for the belt has not rolled over in the groove.

Hi i have seen this with most greenfield models The only way to fix this problem is to replace the drive clutch assy as it ends up to costly to replace the worn parts : shaft,clutch plates & drive pulleys.
In most cases replacing these parts has led to a new assy six months later.
