Safety When using electric power tools, basic safety precautions should always be followed to reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, and personal injury, including the following:

WARNING Failure to follow all warnings and instructions may result in electric shock, fire and/or serious personal injury. Read all safety warnings and all instructions.

Save all warnings and instructions for future reference. The term power tool in all the warnings refers to your corded power tool or battery-operated (cordless) power tool. 1. Work area safety

A. Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or dark areas invite accidents.

B. Do not operate power tools in explosive atmospheres, such as in the presence of flammable liquids, gasses, or dust. Power tools create sparks, which may ignite the dust or fumes.

C. Keep children and bystanders away while operating a power tool. Distractions can cause you to lose control.

2. Personal safety A. Stay alert, watch what you are doing,

and use common sense when operating a power tool. Do not use a power tool while you are tired or under the influence of drugs, alcohol, or medication. A moment of inattention while operating power tools could result in serious personal injury.

B. Use personal protective equipment. Always wear eye protection. Protective equipment such as a dust mask, non-skid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing protection used for appropriate conditions reduces personal injuries.

C. Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure that the switch is in the OFF position before you connect the tool to a power source and/or battery pack, pick it up, or carry it. Carrying power tools with your finger on the switch or energizing power tools that have the switch on invites accidents.

D. Remove any adjusting key or wrench before turning the power tool on. A

wrench or a key left attached to the power tool may result in personal injury.

E. Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. This enables better control of the power tool in unexpected situations.

F. Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry. Keep your hair, clothing, and gloves away from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewelry, or long hair can get caught in moving parts.

G. If devices are provided for the dust extraction and collection, ensure that these are connected and properly used. Using these devices can reduce dust-related hazards.

H. Keep your hands and feet away from the cutting area.

3. Power tool use and care A. Do not force the power tool. Use the

correct power tool for your application. The correct power tool will do the job better and safer at the rate for which it was designed.

B. Do not use the power tool if the switch does not turn it on and off. Any power tool that cannot be controlled with the switch is dangerous and must be repaired.

C. Disconnect the plug from the power source and/or the battery pack from the power tool before adjusting it, changing accessories on it, or storing it. Such preventive safety measures reduce the risk of starting the power tool accidentally.

D. Store idle power tools out of the reach of children, and do not allow persons unfamiliar with the power tool or these instructions to operate the power tool. Power tools are dangerous in the hands of untrained users.

E. Store idle appliances indoors. When not in use, appliances should be stored indoors in a dry and high or locked-up place, out of the reach of children.

F. Maintain power tools. Check for misalignment or binding of moving parts, broken parts, and any other condition that may affect the operation of the power tools. If damaged, have the power tool repaired before use. Many accidents are caused by poorly maintained power tools.

G. Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly maintained cutting tools with sharp

cutting edges are less likely to bind and are easier to control.

H. Use the power tool, accessories, tool bits, etc. in accordance with these instructions and in the manner intended for the particular type of power tool, taking into account the working conditions and the work to be performed. Using the power tool for operations different from those intended could result in a hazardous situation.

I. Keep guards in place and in working order.

J. Use only replacement guide bars and chains specified by the manufacturer. Incorrect replacement guide bars and chains may cause chain breakage and/or kickback.

K. Follow the manufacturers sharpening and maintenance instructions for the saw chain. Decreasing the depth gauge height can lead to increased kickback.

4. Chain Saw Safety A. Hold the power tool by insulated gripping

surfaces only, because the saw chain may contact hidden wiring or its own cord. Saw chains contacting a live wire may make exposed metal parts of the power tool live and could give you an electric shock.

B. Wear safety glasses, hearing protection, and protective equipment for your head, hands, legs, and feet. Wearing adequate protective clothing reduces personal injury by flying debris or accidental contact with the saw chain.

C. Cutting trees can be hazardous and requires expertise. Do not use the chain saw to fell large trees that have a diameter greater than the length of the guide bar.

D. Do not operate a chain saw in a tree. Operating a chain saw while up in a tree may result in personal injury.

E. Always keep proper footing and operate the chain saw only when standing on a fixed, secure, and level surface. Slippery or unstable surfaces such as ladders may cause a loss of balance or control of the chain saw.

F. When cutting a limb that is under tension, be alert for spring back. When the tension in the wood fiber is released, the spring loaded limb may strike you and/or throw the chain saw out of control.

3

G. Use extreme caution when cutting brush and saplings. The slender material may catch the saw chain and be whipped toward you or pull you off balance.

H. Carry the chain saw by the front handle with the chain saw switched off and away from your body. When transporting or storing the chain saw, always use the guide bar cover. Proper handling of the chain saw reduces the likelihood of accidental contact with the moving saw chain.

I. Follow the instructions for lubricating, chain tensioning, and changing accessories. Improperly tensioned or lubricated chain may either break or increase the chance for kickback.

J. Keep handles dry, clean, and free from oil and grease. Greasy, oily handles are slippery, causing loss of control.

K. Avoid kickback. Kickback may occur when the nose or tip of the guide bar touches an object, or when the wood pinches the saw chain while you are cutting. Tip contact may cause a sudden reverse reaction, kicking the guide bar up and back toward you; pinching the saw chain along the top of the guide bar may push the guide bar rapidly back toward you. Either of these reactions may cause you to lose control of the saw, which could result in a serious personal injury. You can avoid kickback by taking proper precautions as given below: Use both hands whenever you

operate the chain saw. Maintain a firm grip, with thumbs and fingers encircling the chain saw handles, with both hands on the saw, and with your body and arm in position that allows you to resist kickback forces. You can control kickback forces if proper precautions are taken. Do not let go of the chain saw!

Do not overreach and do not cut above shoulder height. This helps prevent unintended tip contact and enables better control of the chain saw in unexpected situations.

5. Service Have your power tool serviced by a qualified repair person using only identical replacement parts. This ensures that the safety of the power tool is maintained.

6. Battery Safety

A. Do not charge the power tool in rain or in wet locations.

B. Do not use a battery-operated power tool in the rain.

C. Use only the following type and size of battery(ies): Toro battery Model 88525 or 88526 and battery charger Model 88527.

D. Remove or disconnect the battery before servicing, cleaning, or removing material from the power tool.

E. Do not dispose of the battery in a fire; the cell may explode. Check with local codes for possible special disposal instructions.

F. Do not open or mutilate the battery. Released electrolyte is corrosive and may cause damage to the eyes or skin. It may be toxic if swallowed.

G. Do not open or mutilate the battery. Released electrolyte is flammable and can cause damage if exposed to fire.

H. Exercise care in handling batteries to prevent shorting the battery with conducting materials such as rings, bracelets, and keys. The battery or conductor may overheat and cause burns.

I. Charging time increases if the battery pack is not charged within the appropriate temperature range.

Cutting with the Chain Saw WARNING

Operating a chain saw improperly can cause serious personal injury or death. Read and follow all operating instructions carefully to avoid possible personal injury.

WARNING Kickback can cause serious or fatal injury to you. Always ensure that the chain brake system is working properly before you operate the chain saw. Avoid touching objects to be cut with the tip of the chain saw.

There are 2 types of kickback: A fast upward motion of the chain saw that results

when the chain at the nose or top of the bar contacts an object

A fast backward motion of the chain saw that results when the chain at the nose or top of the bar is pinched by the object being cut

Figure 10 shows the area of the bar to avoid contacting an object to prevent kickback.

g026070

Figure 10

1. Grip the chain saw with 2 hands, with your left hand on the front handle and your right hand on the rear handle as shown in Figure 11.

Note: Keeping your left arm straight with your elbow locked helps reduce kickback.

g025213

Figure 11

2. Stand to the left side of the chain saw and not in line with the chain, and position yourself for balanced, stable footing while sawing.

3. Stand on solid, even ground in front of the wood to be cut.

4. While cutting, have the wood near the chain saw head, at the exposed near end of the guide bar. You can use the bucking teeth (Figure 12) to add pressure but it works best with a sharp-toothed chain.

g200720

Figure 12

1. Bucking teeth

5. Press the chain saw lightly against the wood, allowing the weight of the chain saw to drive the cutting.

6. Keep steady pressure on the chain saw throughout the cut, and release pressure only near the end of the cut.

10

Pruning a Tree WARNING

Cutting higher limbs from a tree off the ground can put you in an unstable position that could be unsafe for you while handling a chain saw, resulting in possible serious personal injury or death to you or bystanders. When cutting limbs from a standing tree, use the following practices: Do not climb on limbs or branches with a

chain saw. Do not overreach, and cut with both hands

on the chain saw. Ensure that all bystanders are away from

the area where branches may fall.

1. Grip the chain saw as shown in Figure 11. 2. While cutting small branches, apply light

pressure to the branch to be cut. 3. While cutting larger branches, make a shallow

undercut and then complete the cut from the topside of the branch. A. Cut from the underside of the limb about 15

cm (6 inches) from the trunk. Cut a third of the way through the limb.

B. Cut 5.0 to 10.0 cm (2 to 4 inches) farther out on the limb and from above. Cut the limb until it falls.

C. Cut about a third of the diameter of the limb stub from underneath as close to the trunk as possible.

D. Cut the limb stub from above so that it meets the previous cut as close to the trunk as possible.

Felling a Tree WARNING

Cutting standing trees requires expertise and poses hazards. Before attempting to cut a big tree, practice

cutting a few branches, limbs, or small logs to familiarize yourself with the chain saw.

Do not use this chain saw to fell large trees with a diameter larger than the length of the guide bar.

The proper operator stance for felling a tree is shown in Figure 13.

g195831

Figure 13

1. Determine the direction that the tree will fall. Consider the wind direction, if there are heavier limbs on 1 side of the tree, and the natural tilt of the tree, if any.

2. Determine a clear, safe retreat path away from the danger area; refer to Figure 14.

g024800

Figure 14

1. Retreat path 3. Danger area 2. 45 degree angle

3. Grip the chain saw as shown in (Figure 11). 4. Make the first cut a third of the way through the

tree diameter on the side where you want the tree to fall (Figure 15).

Note: Making this cut prevents the chain saw from being pinched while making the next cut.

11

g228707

Figure 15

1. First cut 3. Hinge 2. Second cut 4. Back cut

5. Make a second cut to form a notch, starting the cut at least 5 cm (2 inches) above and away from the first cut (Figure 15).

6. Make the back cut from the opposite side of the notch and about 5 cm (2 inches) higher than the bottom of the notch as shown in Figure 15.

Important: Stop the third cut 2.5 to 5.0 cm (1 to 2 inches) from the notch to form a hinge between the cuts (Figure 15), which keeps the tree from falling in the wrong direction or twisting as it falls.

Note: As the back cut nears the hinge (Figure 15), the tree should begin to fall.

7. When the tree begins to fall, remove the chain saw, shut it off, put it down, and retreat along the path you determined in step 2.

Important: If the tree begins to fall in an undesired direction, immediately stop the cut, shut off the chain saw, put the chain saw down, and use a wedge to open the cut and push the tree in the desired direction.

Limbing a Fallen Tree 1. Grip the chain saw as shown in Figure 11. 2. Cut off the smaller limbs from the tree that are

not supporting its weight off the ground.

g194824

Figure 16

g194825

Figure 17

3. Cut the larger limbs that support the weight of the tree from the bottom upward so that the limbs do not pinch the saw blade (Figure 18).

12

g194822

Figure 18

13

Bucking a Log If you are cutting branches from a fallen tree or

cutting a log into lengths, support the log off the ground (preferably on a sawbuck); refer to Figure 19.

g194820

Figure 19

If the log is supported on an end, cut from the top. If the chain saw binds in the cut, do not attempt to free it by running the motor. Shut off the saw, then use a wedge to pry open the cut and release the saw.

If the log is supported on both ends, start from the top and cut about a third of the way through the log (Figure 19A). Make a second cut from the underside to meet the first cut (Figure 19B and Figure 19C). This keeps the log from pinching the saw.

If the log is supported along its entire length, cut all the way through the log from the top.

If the log is supported on both ends but not in the middle, cut a third of the diameter from the top, then either cut from the bottom or roll the log over to meet the first cut (Figure 20).

g194819
