dA SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
The 3521 and 521 SNOWTHROWERS meet or exceed the Outdoor Power Equipment
Institute’s safety standards for snowthrowers; thus, Toro proudly displays the OPE! safety
seal. To assure maximum safety, optimum performance, and to gain knowledge of the
product, it is essential that you or any other operator of the snowthrower read and
understand the contents of this manual before the engine is ever started. Pay particular
attention to the safety symbol which means CAUTION, WARNING or DANGER —
“personal safety instruction”. Read and understand the instruction because it has to do
with safety. Failure to comply with the instruction may result in personal injury.
The following instructions are comparable to
the Instructions For Safe Snowthrowing
adopted by ANSI — American National
Standards Institute. The snowthrower is
designed and tested to offer reasonably safe
service, however, failure to operate it in
accordance with the following Safety Instruc-
tions MAY RESULT IN PERSONAL INJURY.
BEFORE OPERATING
1. Read and understand the contents of this
manual before starting and operating the
machine. Become familiar with all controls
and know how to stop the engine quickly.
2. Keep everyone, especially children and
pets, away from the area of operation. Never
allow children to operate the snowthrower.
3. Inspect area thoroughly where snow-
thrower will be used. Remove doormats, sleds,
boards, sticks, wire and any other foreign
objects which might be picked up and thrown
by the snowthrower.
4. Keep all shields and safety devices in place.
If a shield, safety device or decal is defective or
damaged, repair or replace it before operation
is commenced. Also, tighten any loose nuts,
bolts and screws.
5. Wear adequate winter clothing and foot-
wear that will improve footing on slippery
surfaces. Do not wear loose fitting clothing
that could possibly get caughtin moving parts.
6. Adjust both skids so auger housing clears
gravel or crushed rock surfaces.
7. Before starting the engine, assure auger
drive control and wheel drive control are in
disengaged position.
8. Fill fuel tank with gasoline before starting
the engine. Avoid spilling any gasoline. Since
gasoline is highly flammable, handle it care-
fully. DO NOT SMOKE.
A. Use an approved gasoline container.
B. Fill fuel tank outdoors and only when
engine is not running. Engine must be cool
to prevent a potential fire hazard.
C. Open doors if engine will be run in the
garage because exhaust fumes are
dangerous and could possibly be deadly.
Do not run engine indoors.
D. Wipe up any gasoline that spilled, and
install gasoline container cap and snow-
thrower fuel tank cap securely before
starting the engine.
WHILE OPERATING
9. Keep people and pets a safe distance away
‘from the snowthrower and area of operation.
10. Allow engine and machine to warm up
for about 2 minutes to adjust to outdoor
temperature before clearing snow.
11. Do not run engine indoors, except when
starting engine. When starting engine indoors,
open outside doors because exhaust gasses
are dangerous.
12. Operatethe snowthrower only whenthere
Is good visibility or light. Always maintain
secure footing and keep a firm grip on the
handles, especially when operating in reverse.
13. Be attentive when using the snowthrower,
and stay alert for holes inthe terrain and other
hidden hazards. Be careful when clearing
snow froma gravel drive because stones could
O The Toro Company — 1988, Rev. 1989
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
be picked up and thrown if the skids are not
adjusted so auger housing clears all rocks.
14. STAY BEHIND THE HANDLES AND
AWAY FROM DISCHARGE OPENING WHILE
OPERATING THE SNOWTHROWER. Keep
face, hands, feet and any other part of your
body or clothing away from concealed,
moving or rotating parts.
15. Do not make any adjustments while the
engine is running, with the exception of
carburetor adjustments.
16. Never operate snowthrower near by-
standers, glass enclosures, automobiles and
trucks, window wells or a drop-off without
proper adjustment of the snow discharge
angle.
17. Clear snow from slopes by going up and
down; never across the face, and use caution
when changing directions. Never clear snow
from steep siopes.
18. Do not overioad the snowthrower by
clearing snow at too fast a rate.
19. If a solid object is hit or snowthrower
vibrates abnormally, shut engine off and wait
for all movementto stop. Pull high tension wire
off spark plug and check snowthrower im-
mediately for possible damage, an ob-
struction or loose parts. Vibration is generally
a warning of trouble. Repair any damage
before restarting engine and operating snow-
thrower again.
20. Do not touch engine while itis running or
soon afteritis stopped because the engine will
be hot enough to cause a burn. Do not add oil
or check oil level in crankcase when engine is
running.
21. Before leaving the operator's position —
behind handles — assure traction and auger
drive controls are in DISENGAGE position
and rotate ignition key to OFF. Remove key
from switch if snowthrower will be left
unattended.
22. Before adjusting, cleaning, repairing and
inspecting the snowthrower, and before un-
clogging the discharge chute, shut engine off
and wait for all moving parts to stop. Also, pull
high tension wire off spark plug and keep wire
away from the plug to prevent accidental
starting. Use a stick to remove obstructions.
23. Release auger drive control to assure it is
disengaged before transporting or storing the
snowthrower. Never operate snowthrower at
high transport speeds on slippery surfaces.
Use care when backing.
24. Let engine run for a few minutes after
clearing snow and before storing so moving
parts do not freeze.
MAINTAINING SNOWTHROWER
25. Perform only those maintenance instruc-
tions described in this manual. Shut engine off
before performing any maintenance service or
adjustment. Additionally, pull high tension
wire off spark plug and keep wire away from
plug to prevent possibility of accidental
starting. If major repairs are ever needed,
contact the local Authorized TORO Service
Dealer for assistance. |
26. Keep snowthrower in safe operating
condition by keeping nuts, bolts and screws
tight. Check engine mounting bolts frequently
to assure they are tight.
27. Do not overspeed the engine by changing
governor settings. Recommended maximum
engine speed is 3400 rpm. To assure safety
and accuracy, check maximum engine speed
(3400 rpm) with a tachometer.
28. Allow engine to cool before storing snow-
thrower in an enclosure such as a garage Or
storage shed. Never store the machine with
fuel in the fuel tank inside a building where
open flame or sparks are present.
29. When storing the snowthrower for an ex-
tended time — off season storage or 30 days
— drain gasoline from fuel tank to
prevent a potential hazard. Store gasoline in a
safety-approved, red, metal container. Re-
move key from ignition switch and keep it in a
memorable place.
30. At the time of manufacture, the snow-
thrower conformed with or exceeded safety
standards in effect for snowthrowers. There-
fore, to assure optimum performance and

PREPARATION BEFORE STARTING
FILL CRANKCASE WITH OIL
Theengineis shipped fromthe factory without
oil in the crankcase. Therefore, before trying
to start engine, oil must be added to the
crankcase.
IMPORTANT: Check level of oil every 5
operating hours or each time unit is used.
Initially, change oil after the tirst 2 hours of
operation; thereafter, under normal condi-
tions, change oil after every 25 hours of
operation. However, change oil more fre-
quently when engine is operated in extremely
dirty conditions.
1. Move unit to a level surface to assure an
accurate oil level reading.
2. Clean area around dipstick to prevent foreign
matter from entering filler hole when disptick
is removed.
3. Remove dipstick from crankcase (Fig. 13).

key to OFF (Fig. 15).
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
SNOWTHROWING TIPS
1. When snowthrower is not being used, close
fuel shut-off valve. and remove key from the
switch.
2. Remove snow as soon as possible after it
falls. This will produce best snow removal
results
3. Hf snow will be removed from crushed rock
or gravel areas. adjust skids so bottom of
auger housing clears the rocks: refer to
Adjusting Skids, page 12.
10
4 For concrete or asphalt surfaces, adjust
skids so there is 1/8 inch (32 mm) between
bottom of auger and concrete or asphalt
surface.
5. The snowthroweris designed to clean most
of the snow down to the contact surface, but
there are times when front of snowthrower
may tend to ride up If this happens. reduce
forward speed by shifting into a lower gear. If
front still tends to ride up. lift up on both
handles to hold down front of snowthrower.
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
6. Discharge snow downwind whenever
possibile, and overlap cach swath to assure
complete snow removal. If wheels slip, shift
into a lower gear which reduces forward
speed.
7. Normally, chains are not required: how-
ever, tire chains are recommended when the
wheels spin excessively.
8. Insome snow and cold weather conditions,
some controls and moving parts may freeze
solid. Therefore. when any control becomes
hard to operate, stop the engine: then check
all parts for freeze up. DO NOT USE
EXCESSIVE FORCE AND TRY TO OPERATE
THE CONTROLS WHEN FROZEN. Free all
controls and moving parts before operating.

every 25 hours ofengine operation or annually.
If possible, run engine just before changing
oil because warm oil flows better and
carries more contaminants than cold oil.
Note: Drain oil when fuel tank is empty to
prevent spilling gasoline.
1. Pull high tension wire off spark plug and
make sure wire does not contact plug
accidentally (Fig. 16).
2. Putatwo inch block under the right wheel
so snowthrower is tipped slightly to the side.
This will assure that all oil drains from
crankcase.
3. Clean area around oil drain cap. Next, slide
oll drain pan below drain extension; then
remove oil drain cap (Fig. 19).

MAINTENANCE
REPLACING SPARK PLUG
Correct spark plug to use is a Champion RJ-
17LM or Autolite AR7N, and correct air gap is
0.030 of an inch (0.76 mm). Since air gap
between center and side electrodes of the
spark plug increases gradually during normal
engine operation, install a new plug after
every 25 hours of engine operation.
1. Clean area around spark plug so foreign
matter cannot fall into cylinder when plug is
removed.
2. Pull high tension wire off spark plug and
remove plug from cylinder head.
IMPORTANT: A cracked, fouled, or dirty spark
plug must be replaced. Do not sand blast,
scrape, or clean electrodes, because grit may
eventually release from the plug and fali into
the cylinder. The result will likely be engine
damage.
3. Set air gap between electrodes of new
spark plug at 0.030 of an inch (0.76 mm),
(Fig. 32). Next, install spark plug in cylinder
head. Tighten plug to 15 ft-lb (20.4 N-m). If
torque wrench is not used, tighten plug firmly.
Figure 32
4. Push the high tension wire onto spark plug.
ADJUSTING CARBURETOR
The carburetor has been adjusted at the
factory, but an occasional adjustment may be
required. However, do not make unnecessary
carburetor adjustments because factory
settings are usually satisfactory.
1. Remove carburetor heater box; use Starting
and Stopping Instructions, paragraph one,
steps A & B, page 10.
IMPORTANT: Do not close power adjusting
screw too tight because the screw and seat
will likely be damaged.
2. Power adjusting screw (Fig. 33) — Close
screw by gently rotating it clockwise until a
slight seating resistance is felt. Next, rotate
16
power adjusting screw 1 full turn — 360° —
counterclockwise.

1. Power adjusting screw
2. Idle mixture screw
3. Idler speed screw
IMPORTANT: Do notclose idle mixture screw
too tight because the screw and seat will likely

3. Idle mixture screw (Fig. 33) — Close screw
by gently rotating it clockwise until a slight
seating resistance is felt. Next, rotate idle
mixture screw 1% full turns counterclockwise.
Note: The settings for the power adjusting
screw and the idle mixture screw are approxi-
mate; however, these settings will allow
engine to be started so carburetor can be fine
tuned — steps 4-7.
4. Start engine and let it warm up for
approximately 3 to 5 minutes; then move
throttle to FAST.

5. Rotate power adjusting screw (Fig. 33)
clockwise — in — 1/8 turn at a time until
engine misses because of a lean gasoline
mixture. Then rotate screw counterclockwise
— out — 1/8 turn at a time until engine runs
unevenly because of a rich gasoline mixture.
Next, rotate power adjusting screw clockwise,
back to the midpoint between the rich and
lean setting so engine runs smoothly.
Note: Wait several seconds between each 1/8
turn setting so engine can adjust to the new
fuel mixture.
6. Move throttle to idle speed. Next, rotate idle
speed screw (Fig. 33) until engine idles fast
—1750 rpm.
7. Rotate idle mixture screw (Fig. 33) clock-
wise — in — 1/8 turn at a time until engine
begins to miss because of a lean mixture.
Then rotate screw counterclockwise — out —
1/8 turn at a time until engine runs unevenly
because of rich mixture. Next, rotate idle
mixture screw clockwise, back to the mid-
point between rich and lean setting.
Note: Wait several seconds between each 1/8
turn setting so engine can adjust to the new
fuel mixture.
8. Again, rotate idle speed screw (Fig. 33)
until engine idles at 1750 rpm.
9. Check carburetor adjustment by quickly
moving throttle from low speed to high speed.
Engine should accelerate without hesitation
or sputtering. Hf engine does not accelerate
property. adjust carburetor to a slightly richer
mixture. Also, if engine falters under load,
open power adjusting screw 1/8 turn counter-
clockwise.
10. After carburetor is adjusted, shut engine off.
Reinstall carburetor heater box.
PREPARING SNOWTHROWER
FOR STORAGE
1. Drain gasoline from fuel tank, refer to
Draining Gasoline, page 11. Wipe up any
gasoline that may have spilled.
2. Start the engine and let it run until it stops
because there is no gasoline in the fuel
system. When engine sputters, push choke
down so fuel in carburetor is expended.
3. Remove spark plug trom cylinder head.
Next. pour two teaspoons of SAE 30 engine oil
into spark plug hole in cylinder head. Install
spark plug in cylinder head, but do not install
high tension wire on the plug. Then pull recoil
starter slowly to distribute oil on inside of
cylinder.
4. Lubricate the snowthrower: refer to
Lubricating Snowthrower, page 11. Change
crankcase oil: refer to Changing Crankcase

surfaces with paint. Sand affected areas
before painting, and use a rust preventative to
prevent metal parts from rusting.
6. Tighten all screws and nuts. If any part is
damaged, repair or replace it.
7. Store snowthrower in a clean, dry place,
and cover it to give protection.
8. If snowthrower is equipped with the
optional, drift breaker storage bar. the snow-
thrower may be stored in upright position.
Make sure to drain gas before tipping snow-
thrower upright on auger housing.
