Operation
DANGER
In certain conditions during fueling, static
electricity can be released causing a spark which
can ignite gasoline vapors. A fire or explosion
from gasoline can burn you and others and
cause property damage.
WARNING
Operating engine parts, especially the muffler,
become extremely hot. Severe burns can occur on
contact and debris, such as leaves, grass, brush, etc.
can catch fire.
– Always place gasoline containers on the
ground away from your vehicle before filling.
• Allow engine parts, especially the muffler, to
cool before touching.
– Do not fill gasoline containers inside a
vehicle or on a truck or trailer bed because
interior carpets or plastic truck bed liners
may insulate the container and slow the loss
of any static charge.
• Remove accumulated debris from muffler and
engine area.
WARNING
– When practical, remove gas-powered
equipment from the truck or trailer and refuel
the equipment with its wheels on the ground.
Engine exhaust contains carbon monoxide, which
is an odorless deadly poison that can kill you.
– If this is not possible, then refuel such
equipment on a truck or trailer from a
portable container, rather than from a
gasoline dispenser nozzle.
Do not run engine indoors or in a small confined
area where dangerous carbon monoxide fumes can
collect.
– If a gasoline dispenser nozzle must be used,
keep the nozzle in contact with the rim of the
fuel tank or container opening at all times

In certain conditions, gasoline is extremely
flammable and highly explosive. A fire or explosion
from gasoline can burn you and others and can
damage property.
• Fill the fuel tank outdoors, in an open area, and
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 6 to 13
mm (1/4 to 1/2 inch) below the bottom of the
filler neck. This empty space in the tank allows
the gasoline to expand.
• Never smoke when handling gasoline, and stay
away from an open flame or where a spark may
ignite the gasoline fumes.
• Store gasoline in an approved fuel container and
keep it out of the reach of children.
• Never buy more than a 30-day supply of

Check Safety Interlock System
DANGER
When fueling, under certain circumstances, a static
charge can develop, igniting the gasoline. A fire or
explosion from gasoline can burn you and others
and damage property.
Service Interval: Before each use or daily
CAUTION
If safety interlock switches are disconnected or
damaged the machine could operate unexpectedly
causing personal injury.
• Do not tamper with the interlock switches.
• Check the operation of the interlock switches
daily and replace any damaged switches before
operating the machine.
• Always place gasoline containers on the ground
and away from your vehicle before filling.
• Do not fill gasoline containers inside a vehicle or
on a truck or trailer bed because interior carpets
or plastic truck bed liners may insulate the
container and slow the loss of any static charge.
• When practical, remove gasoline-powered
equipment from the truck or trailer and refuel
the equipment with its wheels on the round.
Understanding the Safety Interlock System
The safety interlock system is designed to prevent the engine
from starting unless the motion control levers are in the
neutral position.
• If this is not possible, then refuel such
equipment on a truck or trailer from a portable
container, not from a gasoline dispenser nozzle.
Checking the Safety Interlock System
1. Disconnect the spark plug wires.
• If you must use a gasoline dispenser nozzle,
keep the nozzle in contact with the rim of the
fuel tank or container opening at all times until
fueling is complete.
2. While on level ground, block the wheels of the machine
to prevent unintended movement.
3. Disengage the parking brake.
4. With the motion control levers in the neutral position
turn the key to the start position — the starter must
not crank.
• For best results, use only clean, fresh, unleaded gasoline
with an octane rating of 87 or higher ((R+M)/2 rating
method).
Note: If the machine does not pass this test, do not operate.
Contact your authorized Toro Service Dealer.
• Oxygenated fuel with up to 10% ethanol or 15% MTBE
by volume is acceptable.
Important: It is essential that the operator safety
mechanisms be connected and in proper operating
condition prior to use for aerating.
• 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.
Check for Loose Hardware
• Do not use gasoline containing methanol.
Service Interval: Before each use or daily
• Do not store fuel either in the fuel tank or fuel containers
1. Stop engine, wait for all moving parts to stop, and
remove key. Engage parking brake.
over the winter unless a fuel stabilizer is used.
• Do not add oil to gasoline.
2. Visually inspect machine for any loose hardware or any
other possible problem. Tighten hardware or correct
the problem before operating.

WARNING
Loading a unit on a trailer or truck increases the
possibility of backward tip-over. Backward tip-over
could cause serious injury or death.
• Use extreme caution when operating a unit on
a ramp.
• Use only a single, full width ramp; Do not use
individual ramps for each side of the unit.
• If individual ramps must be used, use enough
ramps to create an unbroken ramp surface wider
than the unit.
Figure 13
• Do not exceed a 15° angle between ramp and
ground or between ramp and trailer or truck.
To turn left or right, release pressure on the motion
control lever toward the desired turn direction.
• Avoid sudden acceleration while driving unit up
a ramp to avoid tipping backward.
To make zero turns, lift your foot off of the tine ground
engagement foot switch to raise the tines. The head
will raise in half second.
• Avoid sudden deceleration while backing unit
down a ramp to avoid tipping backward.
Important: Do not make a zero turn when the
tines are in the down position.
Loading a Unit
Use extreme caution when loading units on trailers or trucks.
One full width ramp that is wide enough to extend beyond
the rear tires is recommended instead of individual ramps
for each side of the unit. If it is not possible to use one full
width ramp, use enough individual ramps to simulate a full
width continuous ramp.
3. To stop, position both motion control levers in the
neutral operate position.
Transporting
Transporting a Unit
Ramp should be long enough so that the angles between the
ramp and the ground and the ramp and the trailer or truck
do not exceed 15 degrees. Steeper angles may also cause the
unit to tip backward. If loading on or near a slope, position
the trailer or truck so it is on the down side of the slope and
the ramp extends up the slope. This will minimize the ramp
angle. The trailer or truck should be as level as possible.
Use a heavy-duty trailer or truck to transport the machine.
Lock brake and block wheels. Securely fasten the machine to
the trailer or truck with straps, chains, cable, or ropes. Be
sure that the trailer or truck has all necessary lighting and
marking as required by law. Secure a trailer with a safety
chain. Refer to your local ordinances for specific trailer and
tie-down regulations.
Important: Do not attempt to turn the unit while on the
ramp, you may lose control and drive off the side.
CAUTION
Avoid sudden acceleration when driving up a ramp and
sudden deceleration when backing down a ramp. Both
maneuvers can cause the unit to tip backward.
This unit does not have proper turn signals, lights,
reflective markings, or a slow moving vehicle
emblem. Driving on a street or roadway without
such equipment is dangerous and can lead to
accidents causing personal injury. Driving on a
street or roadway without such equipment may also
be a violation of State laws and the operator may be
subject to traffic tickets and/or fines.
Do not drive a unit on a public street or roadway.
