As a rule there is 2 ways.
1 is a spring loaded idler pulley and the other is to loosen the motor and pull it back.
Depends on the age.

My Greenfield 12-30 mower constantly drops the Drive Belt. How do I correct this?


First make sure that you have the correct size belt.
Then make sure the belt you are using is not stretched or worn out. Check all pulleys and make sure they are not worn and that they are in alignment. Finally make sure that all the idler springs are in place. It is wither an alignment issue or a belt tension issue

My Craftsman riding lawn mower LT2000 (2002/2003) stopped moving. The drive belt seems to be loose. The engine starts and cutting blade engages fine. Was working fine but stopped working when it started...


there should be a drive belt tensioner somewhere on the belt, it usually works off the clutch/brake, when you push on the brake it apply's the brake and also takes the tension off the belt to stop it from moving.
Not sure of your ride on mower but that is how my ride on mower works so I hope this helps.

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.
