This model chipper is a generic Chinesium affair sold under a myriad of names with slight variations. This one with the folding hopper is new to me though.

Hopper folding may make for quicker blade changes but the hopper looks narrow which may make for harder feeding?

So after fitting a new battery on the Greenmech CS100, worked fine for 4 days but now I’m back to square one. Turn key and you hear 1 click at starter but it won’t turn over. Tested battery and it’s fully charged.

Check battery earth and engine  earth strap too.  I wonder if the charge unit is breaking down and your battery is gradually being drained. Put a Meyer across the terminals when running and see how much it is producing?

Cleaned up all terminals/connections. Still the same. Terminals on battery are 14.30v when running, 12.90v when off. 

Solenoid is -12.83v -14.02v when running.

Is the ignition actually switching everything off at the key? Sounds like you are producing enough while running  anyhow, I'll give Jase a nudge to see what Intel he can give you!

Ok Shaun, this is for free..

Take off the yellow wire from the starter motor solenoid and check for 12volts between this wire and earth when you turn the ignition key to the start position.

If you have this voltage, peel back the rubber boots from the two large connectors on the red leads on the solenoid and carefully bridge these together with a short length of electrical wire.

If it now cranks then the solenoid us faulty...if it still won't crank then the starter motor is faulty.

I think we have had solenoid failures in the past..

I hope this helps....

Jase.
