Your mower comes from the factory ready to recycle the
grass and leaf clippings back into the lawn.
If the grass bag is on the mower, remove it (refer to
Removing the Grass Bag) before recycling the clippings.
If the side discharge chute is on the mower, remove it
(refer to Removing the Side Discharge Chute) before
recycling the clippings.
Bagging the Clippings
Use the grass bag when you want to collect grass and
leaf clippings from the lawn.
Note: Ensure the bag is seated in the correct position.
A worn grass bag could allow small stones
and other similar debris to be thrown in the
operator’s or bystander’s direction and result in
serious personal injury or death to the operator
or bystanders.
Check the grass bag frequently. If it is
damaged, install a new Toro replacement bag.
If the side discharge chute is on the mower, remove it
(refer to Removing the Side Discharge Chute) before
bagging the clippings.

Removing the Side Discharge Chute
– Replace the blade or have it sharpened.
To remove the side discharge chute, lift up the side
deflector, remove the side discharge chute, and lower
the side discharge deflector.
– Walk at a slower pace while mowing.
Operating Tips
– Overlap cutting swaths instead of cutting a full
swath with each pass.
General Mowing Tips
– Set the cutting height on the front wheels one
notch lower than the rear wheels. For example,
set the front wheels at 2-1/8-inch (54 mm) and
the rear wheels at 2-1/2 inches (64 mm).
– Raise the cutting height on your mower.
– Cut the grass more frequently.
• Clear the area of sticks, stones, wire, branches, and
other debris that the blade could hit.
• Avoid striking solid objects with the blade. Never
deliberately mow over any object.
• If the mower strikes an object or starts to vibrate,
immediately stop the engine, disconnect the wire
from the spark plug, and examine the mower 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 Leaves
• After cutting the lawn, ensure that half of the lawn
shows through the cut leaf cover. You may need to
make more than one pass over the leaves.
• If there are more than 5 inches (13 cm) of leaves
on the lawn, set the front cutting height one or two
notches higher than the rear cutting height.
• Slow down your mowing speed if the mower does
not cut the leaves finely enough.
Cutting Grass
• Cut only about a third of the grass blade at a time.
Do not cut below the 2-1/8-inch (54 mm) setting
unless the grass is sparse or it is late fall when grass
growth begins to slow down. Refer to Adjusting the
Cutting Height.
• When cutting grass over 6 inches (15 cm) tall, mow
at the highest cutting height setting and walk slower;
then mow again at a lower setting for the best lawn
appearance. If the grass is too long, the mower may
plug and cause the engine to stall.
• Mow only dry grass or leaves. Wet grass and leaves
tend to clump on the yard and can cause the mower
to plug or the engine to stall.
Wet grass or leaves can cause serious injury if
you slip and contact the blade. Mow only in dry
conditions.
• Be aware of a potential fire hazard in very dry
conditions, follow all local fire warnings, and keep
the mower free of dry grass and leaf debris.
• Alternate the mowing direction. This helps disperse
the clippings over the lawn for even fertilization.
• If the finished lawn appearance is unsatisfactory, try
one or more of the following:

Limited Warranty for Commercial Use*
All components of gas powered Toro Products used for commercial use are warranted for 45 days against defects in materials or workmanship.
Conditions and Products Covered under The Toro GTS Starting Guarantee
The Toro Company and its affiliate, Toro Warranty Company, pursuant to an agreement between them, jointly guarantee that your Toro GTS engine, when used for residential
purposes*, will start on the first or second pull for three (3) years from the date of purchase, if you provide the routine maintenance it requires, or we will fix it free of charge.
This Warranty applies to all 22 in Recycler® walk power mowers. This warranty covers the cost of parts and labor, but you must pay transportation costs.
This Toro Starting Guarantee does not apply when the product is used commercially.*
The following applies to both the Toro Total Coverage Guarantee & the Toro GTS Starting Guarantee:
Items and Conditions Not Covered
There is no other express warranty except for special emission system coverage on some products. This express warranty does not cover the following:
• Cost of regular maintenance service or parts, such as filters, fuel, lubricants, oil changes, spark plugs, air filters, blade sharpening or worn mower blades, cable/linkage adjustments, or brake and clutch adjustments
• Any product or part which has been altered or misused and requires replacement or repair due to accidents or lack of proper maintenance
• Repairs necessary due to improper battery care, failure to use fresh fuel (less than one month old), or failure to properly prepare the unit prior to any period of non-use over one
month
• Pickup and delivery charges
• Operational misuse, neglect, or accidents
• Repairs or attempted repairs by anyone other than an Authorized Toro Service Dealer
• Repairs or adjustments to correct starting difficulties due to the following:
Failure to follow proper maintenance procedures
Rotary mower blade striking an object
Contaminants in the fuel system
Improper fuel (consult your Operator’s Manual if in doubt)
Failure to drain the fuel system prior to any period of non-use over one month
• Special operational conditions where starting may require more than two pulls:
First time starts after extended period of non-use over one month or seasonal storage
Cool temperature starts such as those found in early spring and late autumn
Improper starting procedures
If you are having difficulty starting your unit, please check the Operator’s Manual to ensure that you are using the correct starting procedures. This can save an unnecessary visit to a
Service Dealer.
Owner Responsibilities
You must maintain your Toro Product by following the maintenance procedures described in the Operator’s Manual. Such routine maintenance, whether performed by a dealer or by
you, is at your expense.
Instructions for Obtaining Warranty Service
If you think that your Toro Product contains a defect in materials or workmanship, or if a normal, able-bodied adult can no longer start your product’s engine in one or two pulls, follow
this procedure:
1. Contact any Authorized Toro Service Dealer to arrange service at their dealership. To locate a dealer convenient to you, refer to the Yellow Pages of your telephone directory (look
under “Lawn Mowers”) or access our web site at www.Toro.com. You may also call the numbers listed in item #3 to use the 24-hour Toro Dealer locator system.
2. Bring the product and your proof of purchase (sales receipt) to the Service Dealer. The dealer will diagnose the problem and determine if it is covered under warranty.
3. If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the Service Dealer’s analysis or with the assistance provided, contact us at: Customer Care Department, Consumer Division, Toro Warranty Company, 8111 Lyndale Avenue South, Bloomington, MN 55420-1196; or call us toll free at 866-214-9807 (U.S. customers) or 866-214-9808 (Canadian customers).
General Conditions
All repairs covered by these warranties must be performed by an Authorized Toro Service Dealer using Toro approved replacement parts.
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 these warranties, including any cost or expense of providing substitute equipment or service during reasonable periods of malfunction or non-use pending
completion of repairs under these warranties. Some states do not allow exclusions of incidental or consequential damages, so the above exclusions 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.
Countries Other than the United States or Canada
Customers who have purchased Toro products outside the United States or Canada should contact their Toro Distributor (Dealer) to obtain guarantee policies for your country, province, or state. If for any reason you are dissatisfied with your Distributor’s service or have difficulty obtaining guarantee information, contact the Toro importer. If all other remedies fail,
you may contact us at Toro Warranty Company.

warranty would apply.
