greenmech 130 problem

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

Any help would be appreciated, I own a Greenmech Arborist 130, Honda petrol engine, I washed the chipper last sunday and haven't used the machine for a week, due to hiring in a tracked machine for jobs. Today I used it, it started up fine, but rollers wouldn't engage, after a few minutes they worked fine for 10 minutes then stopped. Knew I have no display on the RDS unit and the rollers don't work at all. Engine starts and stops fine just wont allow rollers to operate.

Many thanks for your help

remove the panel on the machine that covers the battery and feed rollers. Under there will be a couple of large round connector blocks in the main wiring harness. You have probably got water inside these. Unscrew the connectors, blow them out, pop a bit of Vaseline in there, make sure the O ring seals are present and in good condition and re assemble.


This will most likely fix your problem. Any issues give me a call on 07881 027599 and I can talk you through anything else.
