machine and in the manual(s) before operating this machine. Be thoroughly familiar with the controls and the proper use of the machine. Know how to stop the machine and disengage the controls quickly.

Never allow children to operate the machine. Never allow adults to operate the machine without proper instruction.

Keep the area of operation clear of all persons, particularly small children.

Exercise caution to avoid slipping or falling, especially when operating the machine in reverse.

Preparation Thoroughly inspect the area where the machine is to be

used and remove all doormats, sleds, boards, wires, and other foreign objects.

Disengage all clutches and shift into neutral before starting the engine.

Do not operate the machine without wearing adequate winter garments. Avoid loose fitting clothing that can get caught in moving parts. Wear footwear that will improve footing on slippery surfaces.

Handle fuel with care; it is highly flammable. Use an approved fuel container. Never add fuel to a running engine or hot engine. Fill fuel tank outdoors with extreme care. Never fill

fuel tank indoors. Never fill containers inside a vehicle or on a truck or

trailer bed with a plastic liner. Always place containers on the ground, away from your vehicle, before filling.

When practical, remove gas-powered machinery from the truck or trailer and refuel it on the ground. If this is not possible, then refuel such machinery on a trailer with a portable container, rather than from a gasoline dispenser nozzle.

Keep the nozzle in contact with the rim of the fuel tank or container opening at all times, until refueling is complete. Do not use a nozzle lock-open device.

Replace gasoline cap securely and wipe up spilled fuel.

If fuel is spilled on clothing, change clothing immediately.

Use extension cords and receptacles as specified by the manufacturer for all machines with electric starting motors.

Adjust the collector housing to clear gravel or crushed rock surface.

Never attempt to make any adjustments while the engine is running (except when specifically recommended by manufacturer).

Always wear safety glasses or eye shields during operation or while performing an adjustment or repair to protect eyes from foreign objects that may be thrown from the machine.

Operation Do not put hands or feet near or under rotating parts.

Keep clear of the discharge opening at all times.

Exercise extreme caution when operating on or crossing gravel drives, walks, or roads. Stay alert for hidden hazards or traffic.

After striking a foreign object, stop the engine, remove the ignition key, thoroughly inspect the machine for any damage, and repair the damage before restarting and operating the machine.

If the machine should start to vibrate abnormally, stop the engine and check immediately for the cause. Vibration is generally a warning of trouble.

Stop the engine whenever you leave the operating position, before unclogging the auger/impeller housing or discharge chute, and when making any repairs, adjustments or inspections.

When cleaning, repairing or inspecting the machine, stop the engine and make certain the auger/impeller and all moving parts have stopped. Disconnect the spark plug wire and keep the wire away from the plug to prevent someone from accidentally starting the engine.

Do not run the engine indoors, except when starting the engine and for transporting the machine in or out of the building. Open the outside doors; exhaust fumes are dangerous.

Exercise extreme caution when operating on slopes.

Never operate the machine without proper guards, and other safety protective devices in place and working.

Never direct the discharge toward people or areas where property damage can occur. Keep children and others away.

3

Do not overload the machine capacity by attempting to clear snow at too fast a rate.

Never operate the machine at high transport speeds on slippery surfaces. Look behind and use care when operating in reverse.

Disengage power to the auger/impeller when machine is transported or not in use.

Use only attachments and accessories approved by the manufacturer of the machine (such as wheel weights, counterweights, or cabs).

Never operate the machine without good visibility or light. Always be sure of your footing, and keep a firm hold on the handles. Walk; never run.

Never touch a hot engine or muffler.

Clearing a Clogged Discharge Chute

WARNING Hand contact with the rotating rotor blades inside the discharge chute is the most common cause of injury associated with machines. Never use your hand to clean out the discharge chute.

To clear the chute:

Shut the engine off !

Wait 10 seconds to be sure the rotor blades have stopped rotating.

Always use the cleanout tool mounted on the snowthrower, not your hands.

Maintenance and Storage Check all fasteners at frequent intervals for proper

tightness to be sure the machine is in safe working condition.

Always refer to the Operators Manual for important details if the machine is to be stored for an extended period.

Maintain or replace safety and instruction labels, as necessary.

Toro Snowthrower Safety The following list contains safety information specific to Toro machines or other safety information that you must know.

Rotating auger/impeller can cut off or injure fingers or hands. Stay behind the handles and away from the

discharge opening while operating the machine. Keep your face, hands, feet, and any other part of your body or clothing away from moving or rotating parts.

Before adjusting, cleaning, inspecting, troubleshooting, or repairing the machine, stop the engine, remove the key, and wait for all moving parts to stop. Disconnect the wire from the spark plug and keep it away from the spark plug to prevent someone from accidentally starting the engine.

Before leaving the operating position, stop the engine, remove the key, and wait for all moving parts to stop.

To unclog the discharge chute, stay in the operating position and release the left hand (traction) lever. While running the auger/impeller, push down on the handles to raise the front of the machine a few inches (centimeters) off the pavement. Then lift the handles quickly to bump the front of the machine on the pavement. Repeat if necessary until a stream of snow comes out the discharge chute.

If you cannot unclog the discharge chute by bumping the front of the machine, stop the engine, wait for all moving parts to stop, and use the cleanout tool; never use your hand.

If a shield, safety device, or decal is damaged, illegible, or lost, repair or replace it before beginning operation.

Do not smoke while handling gasoline.

Do not use the machine on a roof.

Filling the Fuel Tank DANGER

Gasoline is extremely flammable and explosive. A fire or explosion from gasoline can burn you and others.

To prevent a static charge from igniting the gasoline, place the container and/or machine on the ground before filling, not in a vehicle or on an object.

Fill the tank outdoors when the engine is cold. Wipe up spills.

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

Store gasoline in an approved fuel container, out of the reach of children.

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.

DoNot store fuel either in the fuel tank or fuel containers over the winter unless a fuel stabilizer is used.

Do Not add oil to gasoline.

Important: To reduce starting problems, add fuel stabilizer to the fuel all season, mixing it with gasoline less than 30 days old. Do not add oil to the gasoline.

Note: Never use methanol, gasoline containing methanol, or gasoline containing more than 10% ethanol because the fuel system could be damaged.

Operating the Traction Drive CAUTION

If the traction drive is not properly adjusted, the machine may move in the direction opposite of what you intended, causing injury and/or property damage.

Carefully check the traction drive and adjust it properly, if necessary; refer to Checking the Traction Drive Operation in Setup for more information.

Important: If the machine moves when the traction lever is in the released position, check the traction cable (refer to Checking and Adjusting the Traction Cable) or take the machine to an Authorized Service Dealer for service.

Important: To operate the traction drive, you must operate the machine with the self-propel feature engaged. Refer to Freewheeling or Using the Self-propel Drive.

1. To engage the traction drive, squeeze the left hand (traction) lever to the handgrip (Figure 36).

Figure 36

2. To stop the traction drive, release the traction lever.

Using the Wheel Clutch Levers The wheel clutch levers allow you to momentarily disengage the drive to one or both wheels with the traction drive lever still engaged. This enables you to turn and maneuver the machine easily.

Note: Holding down the traction lever against the handle engages the traction drive to both wheels.

To turn the machine to the right, lift up on the right wheel clutch lever and squeeze it toward the handle (Figure 37).

18

Figure 37

Note: This disengages the drive to the right wheel while the left wheel continues driving, and the machine turns to the right.

Note: Similarly, squeezing the left wheel clutch lever turns the machine to the left.

When you complete the turn, release the wheel clutch lever, and the drive re-engages both wheels (Figure 38).

Figure 38

Momentarily squeezing and releasing the left or right wheel clutch lever also allows for steering adjustments to keep the machine going in a straight line, especially in deep snow.

Squeezing both wheel clutch levers simultaneously disengages the drive to both wheels. This enables you to manually move the machine backward without stopping to shift it into a reverse gear. It also allows you to maneuver and transport the machine more easily when the engine is not running.

To unclog the discharge chute, stay in the operating position and release the left hand (traction) lever. While running the auger/impeller, push down on the handles to raise the front of the machine a few inches (centimeters) off the pavement. Then lift the handles quickly to bump the front of the machine on the pavement. Repeat if necessary until a stream of snow comes out the discharge chute.

If you cannot unclog the discharge chute by bumping the front of the machine, stop the engine, wait for all moving parts to stop, and use the snow cleanout tool; never use your hand.

Important: Unclogging the discharge chute by bumping the front of the machine on the pavement may cause the skids to move. Adjust the skids and tighten the skid bolts securely.

Preventing Freeze-up In snowy and cold conditions, some controls and moving

parts may freeze. Do not use excessive force when trying to operate frozen controls. If you have difficulty operating any control or part, start the engine and let it run for a few minutes.

After using the machine, let the engine run for a few minutes to prevent moving parts from freezing. Engage the auger/impeller to clear any remaining snow from inside the housing. Rotate the Quick Stick to prevent it

20

from freezing. Stop the engine, wait for all moving parts to stop, and remove all ice and snow from the machine.

With the engine off, pull the recoil starter handle several times and push the electric-starter button once to prevent the recoil starter and electric starter from freezing up.

Operating Tips DANGER

When the machine is in operation, the impeller and auger can rotate and cut off or injure hands and feet.

Before adjusting, cleaning, inspecting, troubleshooting, or repairing the machine, stop the engine and wait for all moving parts to stop. Disconnect the wire from the spark plug and keep it away from the plug to prevent someone from accidentally starting the engine.

Remove an obstruction from the discharge chute; refer to Unclogging the Discharge Chute. If necessary, use the snow cleanout tool, not your hands, to remove an obstruction from the discharge chute.

Stay behind the handles and away from the discharge opening while operating the machine.

Keep face, hands, feet, and any other part of your body or clothing away from concealed, moving, or rotating parts.

WARNING The impeller can throw stones, toys, and other foreign objects and cause serious personal injury to the operator or to bystanders.

Keep the area to be cleared free of all objects that the augers could pick up and throw.

Keep all children and pets away from the area of operation.

Always set the throttle to the Fast position when throwing snow.

If the engine slows down under a load or the wheels slip, shift the machine into a lower gear.

If the front of the machine rides up, shift the machine into a lower gear. If the front continues to ride up, lift up on the handles.

Maintenance Note: Determine the left and right sides of the machine from the normal operating position.
