Starting the Engine

Starting the product depends on whether the engine is cold or warm.

WARNING:

The recoil starter can be damaged by abuse.

Never pull the starter cord to its full length.

Always engage the starter before cranking the engine. Always rewind the starter cord slowly.

9. Since the throttle has been secured in the open position the cutting head will start to rotate. To release the throttle simply operate the throttle and then by releasing it the throttle will return to idle.

10. Run the engine at idle speed until operating temperature is reached (2-3 minutes).

11. The machine should now be ready for use.

IMPORTANT: For maximum line trimmer performance and operating life, allow engine to warm before use.

To Start a Warm Engine

CAUTION:

Follow these steps to start a warm engine:

Operating the machine with loose, missing or damaged components could allow the engine to over-speed, possibly causing serious engine damage. Inspect the entire machine for damage, loose or missing components or fastenings and repair as necessary.

1.

2.

3.

4.

Lay the product on a fl at, bare surface.

Switch the ON/OFF switch to “I”.

Secure the throttle lever the same way as starting a cold engine.

Pull the starter cord until you fi nd resistance

(engaging the starter cog) then pull sharply on the starter.

WARNING:

A cutting blade on the underside of the grass shield automatically cuts the cutting line to the optimum length. This blade is covered by a transport cover. Remove this cover before you start working and replace it after you have finished using the trimmer.

To Start a Cold Engine

Follow these steps to start a cold engine:

1.

2.

3.

4.

5.

6.

7.

8.

Lay the product on a fl at bare surface.

Set the choke lever to the full choke position.

Switch the ON/OFF switch to “I”.

Push the primer bulb approximately 10 times until fuel comes into the primer pump.

Using the throttle lock, set the throttle open.

To engage starter, hold the machine handle fi rmly with your right hand, pull the starter cord slowly until you feel resistance.

Start the engine by pulling the starter cord upward rapidly. If necessary, repeat two or three times until the engine starts.

Let it run for 10 seconds before moving the choke lever fully open.

Note:

If the product does not start, repeat the previous steps.

Check that the fuel tank has suffi cient fuel for the engine to start or that the engine cooled suffi ciently to allow for a “cold start”.

Disconnect the spark plug boot and use the spark plug wrench supplied to remove the plug in a counter-clockwise direction.

If the spark plug is fouled or is soaked with fuel, clean or replace the plug as required.

Turn the product so that the spark plug hole is aimed at the ground.

Clear excess fuel from the combustion chamber by cranking the engine several times while the spark plug is removed.

Install the spark plug fi rmly, tighten it with the spark plug wrench supplied. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN.

Reconnect the spark plug boot.

WARNING:

Incorrect spark plug installation can result in serious engine damage.

Operating the Trimmer

Prolonged cutting at partial throttle will result in oil dripping from the muffl er.

BEFORE EACH USE:

Cutting Tips

Remove dirt and debris from the product exterior.

Inspect the engine, tank and hoses for possible fuel leaks and repair as necessary.

Inspect the engine cooling fi ns for accumulation of debris and clean as necessary.

Inspect the entire machine for damage, loose and missing components or fasteners and repair as necessary.

WARNING:

1.

2.

3.

4.

5.

Keep the trimmer tilted toward the area being cut; this is the best cutting area.

The curved shaft trimmer cuts when passing the unit from right to left. This will avoid throwing debris at the operator. Avoid cutting in the dangerous area shown in Fig. 11.

Use the tip of the line to do the cutting; do not force line head into uncut grass.

Wire and picket fences cause extra line wear, even breakage. Stone and brick walls, curbs and wood will wear the cutting line rapidly.

Avoid tree, shrubs, tree bark and wood mouldings.

To avoid burns from hot surfaces, never operate unit with the bottom of the engine above waist level.

Follow these steps to operate the Line Trimmer.

Fig. 11

1.

2.

3.

4.

5.

Start the trimmer.

Hold the trimmer at waist level with one hand on the trigger handle and the other hand on the front handle.

Keep a fi rm grip with both hands while in operation.

Place the product on the right side of your body with the engine behind and away from your body.

Cut tall grass and weeds down in a right-to-left motion. This will prevent grass from wrapping around the shaft housing and string head, which may cause damage from overheating.

If grass becomes wrapped around the string head,

STOP THE ENGINE, disconnect the spark plug wire and remove the grass.

Maintenance

To Advance the Cutting Line Emissions Maintenance Schedule

Follow these steps to advance the cutting line.

The cutting line is advanced by tapping the cutting head on grass while running the engine at full throttle.

Maintenance, replacement or repair of the emission control device and systems may be performed by any recognised Toro or Pope Service Centre.

1.

2.

Run engine at full throttle.

Tap the spool retainer on ground to advance line.

The line advances each time the spool retainer is tapped.

WARNING:

NOTE: The line trimming cut-off blade on the grass defl ector will cut the line to the correct length.

To Advance the Cutting Line Manually

Before performing any maintenance on this machine, stop the engine and disconnect the spark plug wire.

Follow these steps to advance the cutting line manually.

Before Each Use

1.

2.

Stop the engine.

Push the spool retainer down while pulling on the nylon line(s) to manually advance the line.

The trimmer is equipped with a line trimming cut-off blade on the grass deflector.

For best cutting, advance line until it is trimmed to length by the cut-off blade.

Advance the line whenever you hear the engine running faster than normal, or when trimming efficiency diminishes. This will maintain best performance and keep the line long enough to advance properly.

2.

3.

Remove dirt and debris from the product exterior.

Inspect the engine, tank and hoses for possible fuel leaks and repair as necessary.

Inspect the engine cooling fi ns for accumulation of debris and clean as necessary.
