Hi everyone,

I have just successfully repaired the clutch in my trusty Greenfield thanks to the help found in these forums.

Now I'd like to shout my mower a new properly fitting battery, it has an el cheapo battery i found at a swap meet that doesn't physically fit.

What model number battery is the correct one, my mower is an Evo 3 Mark 2 13 / 32

Thanks,
Raff

Hi Raff,
if the battery works why change it, if it is small and moving around, just pack it with a block of wood or something similar

Hi NormK,

The battery that I have in the mower is way too large and fouls the linkages for the pedal at times.

I have it sort of packed in there with timber, but it still slides about.

There are a couple of local sellers on social media advertising good cheap batteries that I was hoping would be a perfect fit.

I think it's a U1 type I need.

Just wondering if that's the right type before I go and grab the $30 battery I found.

Hi Raff,
just measure the space you have and get a battery that will fit in the hole with the terminals that line up with you leads

G'day Raff and Norm,

Here are the different sizes https://www.centurybatteries.com.au/products/lawn-garden

https://www.ebay.com.au/sch/i.html?...;_nkw=ride+on+mower+battery&_sacat=0

185x125x175 or 195x130x183

Most of my ride on mowers I would fit a small car battery ,new they were $60. saves spending $100. for a ride on battery,
but if you want the mower original fit a battery that fits the hole and if you are missing the clamps ,go to Bunnings and
get some 6 mm all thread and bent a couple of hooks and with some right angle steel make a battery clamp.

Cheers
Max.

I am not recommending anything but I am managing to start my Fastcut 34" with a gel battery, which is smaller in size, a tad taller, than the lead acid it replaced. I had to put longer bolts in for the bracket. probably done a minute on the starter motor, too soon to tell about charging . I am still w1orking on the motor etc. It came from amobility scooter and cost me nothing as I already had it. It is 3 years old but hardly used.

this gel battery is working fine and dandy. it means I can ride my greenfield into my house and charge it indoors as there should be no fumes to worry about / kidding.
