Before Starting
POTENTIAL HAZARD
¢ In certain conditions gasoline is extremely
flammable and highly explosive.
WHAT CAN HAPPEN
e A fire or explosion from gasoline can burn
you, others, and cause property damage.
HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD
e Use a funnel and fill the fuel tank outdoors,
in an open area, when the engine is cold.
Wipe up any gasoline that spills.
¢ Do not fill the fuel tank completely full.
Add gasoline to the fuel tank until the level
is 1/4” to 1/2” (6 mm to 13 mm) below the
bottom of the filler neck. This empty space
in the tank allows gasoline to expand.
e Never smoke when handling gasoline, and
stay away from an open flame or where
gasoline fumes may be ignited by a spark.
¢ Store gasoline in an approved container
and keep it out of the reach of children.
e Never buy more than a 30-day supply of
gasoline.
Mix Gasoline And Oil (Fig. 7)
Use clean, fresh lead-free gasoline, including
oxygenated or reformulated gasoline, with an octane
rating of 85 or higher, To ensure freshness, purchase
only the quantity of gasoline that can be used in 30
days. Use of lead-free gasoline results in fewer
combustion chamber deposits and longer spark plug
life. Use of premium grade fuel 1s not necessary or
recommended.
1.
APPROVED OIL—For simplicity and best
engine performance, mix the contents of one
5.2-ounce bottle of Toro 50:1 Two-Cycle Oil
with two gallons of fresh, unleaded regular
gasoline. You can also use Toro “Easy Mix”
Two—Cycle Oil (3.2 ounce bottle mixed one per
gallon of gasoline; 40:1 ratio) in this Toro
two-cycle engine. Leaded regular gasoline may
be used if unleaded regular is not available.
Toro Two-Cycle Qil is specially formulated to
provide superior lubrication, make starting easy,
and prolong engine life. If Toro Two—Cycle Oil
is not available, mix two gallons of gasoline and
5.2 ounces of another high grade two-cycle oil
that has the NMMA or BIA-TCW certification
printed on the label.
NEVER USE AUTOMOTIVE OIL (ie. SAE
30, 10W30 etc.), TWO-CYCLE OIL THAT IS
NOT CERTIFIED NMMA/BIA-TCW, OR THE
WRONG MIX RATIO BECAUSE THE
ENGINE CAN BE DAMAGED, AND IT
WOULD NOT BE COVERED BY THE TORO
WARRANTY.
Mixing Gasoline and Oil-—Pour a half gallon of
gasoline into an approved gasoline container
(preferably plastic, not metal) and add the correct
amount of two-cycle oil. Reinstall cap on
gasoline container and shake the container to
mix oil and gas thoroughly. Remove cap and add
remaining amount of gasoline.
Toro also recommends that Toro
Stabilizer/Conditioner be used regularly in all
Toro gasoline powered products during operation
and storage seasons. Toro Stabilizer/Conditioner
cleans the engine during operation and prevents
gum—like varnish deposits from forming in the
engine during periods of storage.
IMPORTANT: NEVER USE METHANOL,
GASOLINE CONTAINING METHANOL,
GASOHOL CONTAINING MORE THAN
10% ETHANOL, PREMIUM GASOLINE,
OR WHITE GAS BECAUSE ENGINE
FUEL SYSTEM DAMAGE COULD
RESULT.
DO NOT USE FUEL ADDITIVES OTHER
THAN THOSE MANUFACTURED FOR
FUEL STABILIZATION DURING
STORAGE SUCH AS TORO’S
STABILIZER/CONDITIONER OR A
SIMILAR PRODUCT. TORO’S
STABILIZER/CONDITIONER IS A
PETROLEUM DISTILLATE BASED
CONDITIONER/STABILIZER. TORO
DOES NOT RECOMMEND STABILIZERS
WITH AN ALCOHOL BASE SUCH AS
ETHANOL, METHANOL OR ISOPROPYL.
ADDITIVES SHOULD NOT BE USED TO
TRY TO ENHANCE THE POWER OR
PERFORMANCE OF MACHINE.
Note: Do not mix gasoline and oil in the
product fuel tank. Oil that is at room
temperature mixes easier and more
thoroughly than cold oil.

Operation
Starting/Stopping Engine
(Fig. 8)
1.
CONTROLS—Key switch, primer, recoil starter,
and electric start button are located on the
control panel. The choke is just below the
control panel.
Turn key to ON and pull choke out.
Cover hole in center of primer with thumb and
push once. An additional prime may be
necessary in extremely cold temperatures.
Note: Choke and primer are usually not
necessary when starting a warm
engine.
ELECTRIC STARTING—Connect extension
cord to snowthrower and standard household
power outlet. Push starter button.
IMPORTANT: Excessive running of the
electric starter could damage the starter due
to overheating. To prevent possible damage,
do not run electric starter more than 10 times
at intervals of 5 seconds ON, 5 seconds OFF.
Then wait more than 40 minutes to allow
starter to cool before continuing to run
starter. Before repeating engine starting
procedure, check that ignition key switch is
ON, and make sure there is fresh fuel in fuel
tank. If engine continues to fail to start,
servicing may be needed.
RECOIL STARTING—Hold snowthrower with
one hand and pull recoil starter vigorously with —
other hand.
When engine starts, push in choke slowly.
TO ENGAGE ROTOR—Squeeze control bar to
handle. When the control bar handle is released,
the rotor blades stop, but the engine continues to
run.
TO STOP ENGINE— Release control bar to stop
rotor, turn key to OFF, and wait for all moving
parts to stop before leaving operator's position.
Operating Tips (Fig. 9)
1.
ADJUSTING DISCHARGE CHUTE —
Rotate chute crank clockwise to move discharge
chute to the right and counterclockwise to move
chute to the left. The chute deflector handle on
top of the discharge chute controls the height of
the snow stream. Do not overtighten the chute
deflector mounting nuts so excessive force is
required to adjust the deflector.
SELF-PROPELLING ACTION — The
snowthrower clears down to the ground and
propels itself forward when the handle is raised
and the snowthrower 15 tilted slightly forward so
rotor blades strike the ground. The wheels do not
have to touch the ground in order to self-propel.
The further you tilt the handle forward, the faster
the snowthrower self-propels. However, depth
and height of snow affects forward speed.
Always overlap each swath and discharge
downwind whenever possible.
POTENTIAL HAZARD

discharge opening when engine is running.
Before leaving operating position, stop
engine by turning key to OFF.
Keep the area to be cleared free of stones, toys or
other foreign objects which may be picked up
and thrown by the rotor blades. Such items could
be covered by snowfall and, therefore, unnoticed
until struck by the rotor blades. Always be sure
to keep children and pets away from area of
operation.
Should you find it necessary to clear snow from
crushed rock or gravel, push down on handle to
raise rotor blades clear of loose material that
could be thrown by the blades.
In some snow and cold weather conditions, some
controls and moving parts may freeze solid.
Therefore, when any control becomes hard to
operate, stop the engine. Check all parts for
excessive freeze up. DO NOT USE
EXCESSIVE FORCE WHEN TRYING TO
OPERATE FROZEN CONTROLS. Free all
controls and moving parts before operating.
AFTER CLEARING SNOW — Let engine run
for a few minutes so ice does not freeze moving
parts solid. After engine is shut off, wipe ice and
snow off entire unit. Operate chute crank several
times to clear mechanism of snow.
IMPORTANT: STORE SNOWTHROWER
IN OPERATING POSITION ON ITS
WHEELS. TIPPING OR STORING UNIT
FORWARD ONTO FRONT HOUSING
MAY CAUSE HARD STARTING.
Maintenance
General Maintenance
Normally, the only maintenance required 1s cleaning
the unit and tightening nuts, bolts, and screws.
However, the scraper, drive belt, rotor blades, and
spark plug should be checked once a year.
Adjusting Control Bar
Periodically check control bar for proper adjustment.
1. Turn ignition key to OFF.
2. CHECK ADJUSTMENT (Fig. 9)—Move
control bar back toward handle until slack in
cable is removed. Gap between control bar
bracket and handle should be approximately
1/16”—1/8”. If cable is too loose or too tight,
proceed to step 3 for adjustment procedure.
Note: The control cable must always have
slack in it when in the disengaged
position.
3. ADJUST CABLE—Unhook upper cable end
from hole in control bar bracket (Fig. 6). Slide
spring cover up cable to expose cable adjuster
(Fig. 10). Unhook lower cable end from adjuster.
Reposition cable end in a higher or lower hole
on adjuster to obtain a gap of 1/16—1/8”
between control bar bracket and handle.
(Positioning cable end in a lower hole decreases
gap; positioning cable end in a higher hole
increases gap.) Reinstall upper cable end into
rear hole in control bar bracket (hole with arrow)
(Fig. 6). Slide spring cover over cable adjuster
and recheck adjustment. Repeat procedure until
the proper gap of 1/16”-1/8” between control bar
bracket and handle 1s obtained.
4. After extended use the drive belt may wear and
proper belt tension may not be maintained.
Improper belt tension causes belt slippage and
decreases the snowthrower's performance under
a heavy load. Belt slippage may occur after 2-3
seasons of normal usage (10-15 hours). If drive
belt slips (continuous squealing noise) under
“heavy load, increase belt tension by
repositioning spring end into forward hole in
control bar bracket. Readjust cable (see steps
2-3).
IMPORTANT: Unnecessary use of forward
adjusting hole in control bar bracket reduces
drive belt life. Occasional belt slippage
(squealing) may occur in extremely wet
conditions due to moisture in drive system. To
remove moisture, start rotor and operate under
no load for 30 seconds. Once moisture is
removed, belt should not slip.
Draining Gasoline
1. Stop engine. Remove key from switch.
2. Remove cap from fuel tank and use a pump type
syphon to drain fuel into a clean gas can.
Note: This is the only procedure
recommended for draining fuel.
Replacing Scraper (Fig. 11-12)
Before each season, inspect scraper for wear. If
thickness of bottom of scraper is less than 1/16”
(1.6 mm), replace scraper (Fig. 11).
1. Turn ignition key to OFF.
2. Drain gasoline from fuel tank; refer to Draining
Gasoline, page 9.
3. Tip snowthrower forward onto front housing.
4. Remove (3) carriage bolts and locknuts holding
scraper in place (Fig. 12). Remove scraper by
sliding 1t to right and down.
5. Install new scraper to housing using carriage
bolts and nuts.
Replacing Drive Belt
(Fig. 13-14)
Inspect drive belt before each season. If ribs on inside
of belt are damaged or belt is worn, replacement 1s
necessary.
1. Turn ignition key to OFF.
2. Remove (3) self tapping screws, (2) capscrews,
(1) washer and (2) nuts securing belt cover to
snowthrower frame (Fig. 13). Set belt cover
aside.
3. REMOVING BELT (Fig. 14)—Push down on
idler pulley allowing belt to be removed from
rotor pulley, brake arm assembly, and engine
pulley.
4. INSTALLING BELT (Fig. 14)—L.oop belt
around engine pulley, under idler pulley, over
roller, through brake assembly, and around rotor
pulley.
IMPORTANT: Belt must be on top of roller as
shown.
5. Reinstall belt cover. Tighten fasteners securely,
but DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN.
Replacing Spark Plug
(Fig. 15-17)
Before each snow season, check the spark plug. If
electrodes in center of plug are dark or have
deteriorated, install a new plug. Use an NGK
BPMRAA spark plug and set gap at .032” (.81 mm).
1. REMOVE CONTROL PANEL
(Fig. 15)—Remove (3) capscrews securing
control panel to housing. Remove ignition key
and lift off panel, allowing it to hang on recoil
rope.
2. REMOVE SPARK PLUG (Fig. 16)—Pull wire
off spark plug and remove plug. Examine the
plug and replace if cracked, fouled or dirty. DO
NOT SANDBLAST, SCRAPE OR CLEAN
SPARK PLUG BECAUSE DIRT MAY
RELEASE AND FALL INTO CYLINDER
CAUSING ENGINE DAMAGE.
3. INSTALL SPARK PLUG—Set air gap (Fig. 17)
between electrodes at .032” (.81 mm). Install
plug and tighten to 15 ft-Ib (20.4 N-m). If torque
wrench is not used, tighten plug firmly. Push
wire onto spark plug and reinstall control panel
with (3) capscrews.
Adjusting Carburetor
The carburetor has been factory set, and no
adjustment is required. However, when operating
snowthrower at altitudes of 5000 feet above sea level
or higher, carburetor jets may have to be changed.
Contact your local Authorized Toro Service Dealer
for assistance.
Replacing Rotor Blades
(Fig. 18-20)
Before each snow season, inspect rotor blades for
wear. When blade edge has worn to the wear indicator
hole (Fig. 18), the blades must be replaced to ensure
proper performance and prevent damage to underside
of snowthrower. Always replace both blades at the
same time.
Note: Whenever rotor blades are replaced,
scraper should also be replaced to
ensure proper snowthrower operation
and performance.
Removing Old Blade
1. Remove (4) torx screws and (4) locknuts
securing outer edges of rotor blade to rotor shaft
assembly (Fig. 19).
2. Next, remove (2) hex—head capscrews, spacers
and locknuts securing center of blade to rotor
halves (Fig. 19).
3. Loosen the hex—head screw securing the rotor
halves to the auger shaft assembly (Fig. 19).
4. Slide the blade out from between the rotor halves
(Fig. 19).
10
Installing New Blade
1.
The rotor blades are made of laminated rubber.
Examine the edge of a blade to see the difference
in layer thicknesses (Fig. 20). (Some blades have
a part number on the thick side of the blade.)
Both blades must be installed with the thick
layer on the inside of the curve. If one blade is
installed with the thick layer on the outside of
the curve and the other blade installed with the
thick layer on the inside of the curve, the blades
will be unbalanced, causing the snowthrower to
“hop” or “bounce.”
Insert the new blade between the rotor halves.
Secure it to the rotor halves with (2) hex—head
capscrews, (2) spacers and (2) locknuts (Fig. 19).
Position bolt heads on thick (bottom) side of
blade. Curve the blade, and secure it with the
remaining (4) torx screws and locknuts (position
screw heads on thick side of blade). Tighten all
screws and nuts securely.
Storage
1.
FUEL SYSTEM PREPARATION-
Add Toro Stabilizer/Conditioner to the fuel tank
(one ounce per gallon of fuel).
Run engine for five minutes to distribute
conditioned fuel through fuel system.
Stop engine, allow it to cool, and drain fuel tank
or run engine until it stops.
Restart the engine again and run it until it stops.
Either choke or prime the engine, restart it a
third time and run engine until it will not restart.
Dispose of fuel properly. Recycle per local
codes.
DO NOT store STABILIZED gasoline over 90
days.
CYLINDER/PISTON CARE—Slowly pull
recoil starter until resistance is felt due to
compression pressure, then stop. Release starter
tension slowly to prevent engine from reversing
due to compression pressure. This position
closes both the intake and exhaust ports which
prevents corrosion of the cylinder bore.
TIGHTEN FASTENERS AND
CLEAN—Tighten screws, bolts, and nuts if
necessary. Repair or replace damaged parts.
Clean unit thoroughly.
STORE SNOWTHROWER-—Cover
snowthrower and store in a clean, dry place.
NEVER STORE SNOWTHROWER IN THE
HOUSE OR BASEMENT.
