Install Wheels (Fig. 2) 1. Carefully turn machine onto its left side. Place a wood block under the left axle end. Slide the short spacer and a wheel onto the right axle end. The side of the wheel with six spokes must face the center of the machine. Slide a pushnut onto the end of the axle. Using a hammer, strike the pushnut to seat the nut FIRMLY in place. Turn the machine over on its right side so that the left axle end is pointing up. For the left side, slide the long spacer and a wheel onto the left axle end. The side of the wheel with six spokes must face the center of the axle. Place a wood block under the right axle end. Repeat steps 3 and 4. Install Chute Crank (Fig. 3) 1. Insert flattened end of chute crank through hole in shroud while aligning mounting bracket with holes in lower handle. Slowly rotate crank until flattened end fits into hidden gear opening and chute ring turns with crank. Make sure plastic bushing is fully inserted into hole in mounting bracket, then secure mounting bracket to handle with (2) capscrews and locknuts. Install Discharge Chute (Fig. 4) 1. Set discharge chute onto chute ring. Align hole in back of chute with center hole in ring and install a carriage bolt and sems locknut. Position nut on outside of chute. Note: Chute ring may be rotated to ease assembly of discharge chute. Secure chute to remaining holes in chute ring and tighten all nuts SECURELY. Install Handle (Fig. 5) 1. Remove tie securing control cable to lower handle. Position upper handle so that curved control bar is on top of handle, not underneath it. Secure upper and lower handle in place with (3) handle bolts, (1) eyebolt, and (4) locknuts. Use eyebolt to mount lower left side of handle. Eyebolt must be positioned perpendicular to handle when tightened. Install Control Cable (Fig. 6) 1. Route control cable through eyebolt and hook upper end in rear hole (hole with arrow) in control bar bracket. Move control bar back toward handle until slack in cable is removed. The gap between the control bar bracket and handle should be approximately 1/16”—1/8”. See insert, Figure 6. If an adjustment 1s required, refer to Adjusting Control Bar, page 8. Note: The control cable must always have slack in it when in the disengaged position. 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. 50:1 GAS/OIL Mixing Chart U.S. GALLON Gasoline Oil 1 gallon 2.6 07. 1.5 gallons 3.9 oz. 2 gallons 5.2 02. 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 e When engine is running, discharge rotor is WHAT CAN HAPPEN e Objects thrown from discharge chute can HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD e Keep yourself and other people away from turning. cause personal injury. 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. 11 It is Toro’s policy to design and produce high In addition to The Toro Total Coverage quality products.

The dealer will either arrange service at his/her dealership or recommend another Authorized Service Dealer who may be more convenient. You may need proof of purchase (copy of registration card, sales receipt, etc.) for warranty validation. If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the Service Dealer's analysis of the defect in materials or workmanship or if you need a referral to a TORO Service Dealer, please feel free to contact us at the following address: Toro Customer Service Department 8111 Lyndale Avenue South Bloomington, MN 55420-1196 612—888 —8801 800—348—2424 What Must You Do To Keep The Warranty In Effect?
