Fuel Safety DANGER

Fuel is extremely flammable and highly explosive. A fire or explosion from fuel can burn you and others and can damage property. To prevent a static charge from igniting the

fuel, place the container and/or machine directly on the ground before filling, not in a vehicle or on an object.

Fill the fuel tank outdoors, in an open area, when the engine is cold. Wipe up any fuel that spills.

Do not handle fuel when smoking or around an open flame or sparks.

Store fuel in an approved container and keep it out of the reach of children.

WARNING Fuel is harmful or fatal if swallowed. Long-term exposure to vapors can cause serious injury and illness. Avoid prolonged breathing of vapors. Keep your hands and face away from the

nozzle and the fuel-tank opening. Keep fuel away from your eyes and skin.

Filling the Fuel Tank For best results, use only clean, fresh, unleaded

gasoline with an octane rating of 87 or higher ((R+M)/2 rating method).

Oxygenated fuel with up to 10% ethanol or 15% MTBE by volume is acceptable.

Do not use ethanol blends of gasoline, such as E15 or E85, with more than 10% ethanol by volume. Performance problems and/or engine damage may result, which may not be covered under warranty.

Do not use gasoline containing methanol. Do not store fuel either in the fuel tank or in fuel

containers over the winter unless fuel stabilizer has been added to the fuel.

Do not add oil to gasoline. Fill the fuel tank with fresh unleaded regular gasoline from a major name-brand service station (Figure 11). Important: To reduce starting problems, add fuel stabilizer/conditioner to fresh fuel as directed by the fuel-stabilizer manufacturer.

Operating Tips General Mowing Tips Important: Operating the machine on slopes of more than 45 will cause severe engine damage due to a lack of lubrication. Do not operate the machine on slopes greater than 45. Inspect the area where you will use the machine

and remove all objects that the machine could throw.

Avoid striking solid objects with the blade. Never deliberately mow over any object.

If the machine strikes an object or starts to vibrate, immediately shut off the engine, disconnect the wire from the spark plug, and examine the machine for damage.

For best performance, install a new blade before the cutting season begins.

Replace the blade when necessary with a Toro replacement blade.

Cutting Grass Cut only about a third of the grass blade at a

time. Do not cut below the highest setting unless the grass is sparse or it is late fall when grass growth begins to slow down. Refer to Adjusting the Cutting Height (page 10).

Mowing grass over 15 cm (6 inches) in length is not recommended. If the grass is too long, the machine may plug and cause the engine to stall.

Wet grass and leaves tend to clump on the yard and can cause the machine to plug or the engine to stall. Avoid mowing in wet conditions.

WARNING Wet grass or leaves can cause serious injury if you slip and contact the blade. Mow only in dry conditions, if possible.

Be aware of a potential fire hazard in very dry conditions, follow all local fire warnings, and keep the machine free of dry grass and leaf debris.

If the finished lawn appearance is unsatisfactory, try 1 or more of the following: Replace the blade or have it sharpened. Walk at a slower pace while mowing. Raise the cutting height on your machine. Cut the grass more frequently. Overlap cutting swaths instead of cutting a full

swath with each pass.

Cutting Leaves After cutting the lawn, ensure that half of the lawn

shows through the cut leaf cover. You may need to make more than a single pass over the leaves.

Mowing grass over 15 cm (6 inches) in length is not recommended. If the leaf cover is too thick, the machine may plug and cause the engine to stall.

Slow down your mowing speed if the machine does not cut the leaves finely enough.

13

After Operation After Operating Safety General Safety Clean grass and debris from the machine to help

prevent fires. Clean up oil or fuel spills. Allow the engine to cool before storing the machine

in any enclosure. Never store the machine or fuel container where

California Proposition 65 Warning Information

What is this warning? You may see a product for sale that has a warning label like the following:

WARNING: Cancer and Reproductive Harmwww.p65Warnings.ca.gov.

What is Prop 65? Prop 65 applies to any company operating in California, selling products in California, or manufacturing products that may be sold in or brought into California. It mandates that the Governor of California maintain and publish a list of chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects, and/or other reproductive harm. The list, which is updated annually, includes hundreds of chemicals found in many everyday items. The purpose of Prop 65 is to inform the public about exposure to these chemicals.

Prop 65 does not ban the sale of products containing these chemicals but instead requires warnings on any product, product packaging, or literature with the product. Moreover, a Prop 65 warning does not mean that a product is in violation of any product safety standards or requirements. In fact, the California government has clarified that a Prop 65 warning is not the same as a regulatory decision that a product is safe or unsafe. Many of these chemicals have been used in everyday products for years without documented harm. For more information, go to https://oag.ca.gov/prop65/faqs-view-all.

A Prop 65 warning means that a company has either (1) evaluated the exposure and has concluded that it exceeds the no significant risk level; or (2) has chosen to provide a warning based on its understanding about the presence of a listed chemical without attempting to evaluate the exposure.

Does this law apply everywhere? Prop 65 warnings are required under California law only. These warnings are seen throughout California in a wide range of settings, including but not limited to restaurants, grocery stores, hotels, schools, and hospitals, and on a wide variety of products. Additionally, some online and mail order retailers provide Prop 65 warnings on their websites or in catalogs.

How do the California warnings compare to federal limits? Prop 65 standards are often more stringent than federal and international standards. There are various substances that require a Prop 65 warning at levels that are far lower than federal action limits. For example, the Prop 65 standard for warnings for lead is 0.5 g/day, which is well below the federal and international standards.

Why dont all similar products carry the warning? Products sold in California require Prop 65 labelling while similar products sold elsewhere do not.

A company involved in a Prop 65 lawsuit reaching a settlement may be required to use Prop 65 warnings for its products, but other companies making similar products may have no such requirement.

The enforcement of Prop 65 is inconsistent.

Companies may elect not to provide warnings because they conclude that they are not required to do so under Prop 65; a lack of warnings for a product does not mean that the product is free of listed chemicals at similar levels.

Why does Toro include this warning? Toro has chosen to provide consumers with as much information as possible so that they can make informed decisions about the products they buy and use. Toro provides warnings in certain cases based on its knowledge of the presence of one or more listed chemicals without evaluating the level of exposure, as not all the listed chemicals provide exposure limit requirements. While the exposure from Toro products may be negligible or well within the no significant risk range, out of an abundance of caution, Toro has elected to provide the Prop 65 warnings. Moreover, if Toro does not provide these warnings, it could be sued by the State of California or by private parties seeking to enforce Prop 65 and subject to substantial penalties.

Deep Cycle and Lithium-Ion Battery Warranty: Deep cycle and Lithium-Ion batteries have a specified total number of kilowatt-hours they can deliver during their lifetime. Operating, recharging, and maintenance techniques can extend or reduce total battery life. As the batteries in this product are consumed, the amount of useful work between charging intervals will slowly decrease until the battery is completely worn out. Replacement of worn out batteries, due to normal consumption, is the responsibility of the product owner. Battery replacement may be required during the normal product warranty period at owners expense. Note: (Lithium-Ion battery only): A Lithium-Ion battery has a part only prorated warranty beginning year 3 through year 5 based on the time in service and kilowatt hours used. Refer to the Operator's Manual for additional information.

Maintenance is at Owners Expense Engine tune-up, lubrication, cleaning and polishing, replacement of filters, coolant, and completing recommended maintenance are some of the normal services Toro products require that are at the owners expense.

Neither The Toro Company nor Toro Warranty Company is liable for indirect, incidental or consequential damages in connection with the use of the Toro Products covered by this warranty, including any cost or expense of providing substitute equipment or service during reasonable periods of malfunction or non-use pending completion of repairs under this warranty. Except for the Emissions warranty referenced below, if applicable, there is no other express warranty. All implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for use are limited to the duration of this express warranty.

Some states do not allow exclusions of incidental or consequential damages, or limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above exclusions and limitations may not apply to you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state.

Note regarding engine warranty: The Emissions Control System on your Product may be covered by a separate warranty meeting requirements established by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and/or the California Air Resources Board (CARB).
