Installing and Removing
the Attachment
Refer to the Operator’s Manual for the traction unit for
the installation and removal procedure.
Installing an Auger
Important: Before installing the attachment,
position the machine on a level surface, ensure
that the mount plates are free of any dirt or debris,
and ensure that the pins rotate freely. If the pins
do not rotate freely, grease them.
The auger head swings freely in the cradle
arms. Your hands or fingers could get
pinched and severely injured or amputated if
they are caught between the cradle arms and
the swinging drive head.
Note: Always use the traction unit to lift and move
the attachment. To move an auger without the drive
head, sling a strap over each end of the auger and
hoist it to the desired location.
Keep your hands and fingers away from the
cradle arms.
If you do not fully seat the quick-attach
pins through the attachment mount plate,
the attachment could fall off the machine,
crushing you or bystanders.
Ensure that the quick-attach pins are fully
seated in the attachment mount plate.
Hydraulic fluid escaping under pressure can
penetrate skin and cause injury. Fluid injected
into the skin must be surgically removed
within a few hours by a doctor familiar with
this form of injury; otherwise, gangrene may
Park the machine on a level surface and engage
the parking brake (if applicable).
If you are installing an auger on the Model
22806 drive head continue as follows, otherwise
continue to step 3.
A. Lower the loader arms, shut off the engine,
and remove the key.
B. Position the drive head vertically, slide a
bolt (1/2 x 2-1/2 inches) into the holes in the
front cradle arms, and secure it lightly with
a flange nut (1/2 inch) as shown in Figure 4.
C. Continue to step 3.
• Ensure that all hydraulic-fluid hoses
and lines are in good condition and all
hydraulic connections and fittings are tight
before applying pressure to the hydraulic
• Keep your body and hands away from
pinhole leaks or nozzles that eject
high-pressure hydraulic fluid.
• Use cardboard or paper to find hydraulic
leaks; never use your hands.

Removing an Auger
When the auger is vertical, tilt the attachment
plate rearward until the drive head contacts the
attachment plate to stabilize the auger and keep
it from swinging freely (Figure 9).
Disengage the auxiliary hydraulics.
Raise the loader arms so the auger comes out
of the hole.
Digging a Hole
Note: If you have a 24-inch extension installed
between the drive head and the auger, you may
need to raise the auger as high as possible and
then move the traction unit backward to pull the
auger the rest of the way out of the hole.
Important: Before digging, ensure that the
ground is free of any trash or debris.
1. Lower the auger to the soil at the site of the
proposed hole.
2. Move the throttle lever to the FAST position.
3. If your traction unit has a speed-selector lever,
move it to the SLOW position.
4. If your traction unit has a flow-divider control,
move it to the 10 o'clock position.
5. Pull the auxiliary hydraulics lever to the operator
grip or reference bar to begin digging.
6. Lower the auger slowly as the soil is loosened.
As you dig deeper, move the traction unit
backward or forward as required to keep the
auger vertical (Figure 10).
Figure 10
When the auger becomes full of soil, disengage
the auger drive and lift the auger from the hole.
Engage the auger drive to spin off the soil, then
resume digging.
Important: Switching the auxiliary
hydraulics lever rapidly from forward to
reverse will help to shake off the soil.
When you are done digging, allow the auger to
run for a few seconds to clean any loose dirt out
of the hole, shut off the auxiliary hydraulics, and
fully raise the auger out of the hole.
If you are using Model 22806, excessive
downward force may cause the bit to wobble
uncontrollably, which could tip the traction
unit. You or bystanders could be pinned or
seriously injured.
Do not use excessive downward pressure on
the bit. Allow the bit to pull itself into the soil.
Drive the machine to the storage location for
the auger.
While lowering the arms, drive slowly backward
until the auger is horizontal.
Shut off the engine and remove the key.
Remove the bolt and nut securing the drive head
to the auger or extension.
Start the engine and back the traction unit away
from the auger.
If you used an extension, remove the bolt and
nut securing it and pull it off the auger.
Transport Position
• When transporting an auger smaller than 51 cm
(20 inch) diameter over long distances or slopes,
do the following:
• When transporting any size auger over short
distances or an auger larger than 51 cm (20 inch)
diameter over longer distances, do the following:
Raise the auger so that it clears the ground
and is vertical (Figure 9).
While lowering the arms, drive slowly
backwards until the auger is horizontal, then
engage the parking brake (if applicable).
Shut off the engine and remove the key.
Manually rotate the auger drive head up,
until you can slide a bolt (1/2 x 2-1/2 inches)
into the hole in the cradle arm, securing the
drive head. Lightly secure the bolt with a nut
(1/2 inch) as shown in Figure 5.
As you transport the auger, keep it as close
to the ground as possible, no more than 15
cm (6 inches) above the ground.

California Proposition 65 Warning Information
What is this warning?
You may see a product for sale that has a warning label like the following:
WARNING: Cancer and Reproductive Harm—
What is Prop 65?
Prop 65 applies to any company operating in California, selling products in California, or manufacturing products that may be sold in or brought into
California. It mandates that the Governor of California maintain and publish a list of chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects, and/or other
reproductive harm. The list, which is updated annually, includes hundreds of chemicals found in many everyday items. The purpose of Prop 65 is to
inform the public about exposure to these chemicals.
Prop 65 does not ban the sale of products containing these chemicals but instead requires warnings on any product, product packaging, or literature with
the product. Moreover, a Prop 65 warning does not mean that a product is in violation of any product safety standards or requirements. In fact, the
California government has clarified that a Prop 65 warning “is not the same as a regulatory decision that a product is ‘safe’ or ‘unsafe.’” Many of these
chemicals have been used in everyday products for years without documented harm. For more information, go to
A Prop 65 warning means that a company has either (1) evaluated the exposure and has concluded that it exceeds the “no significant risk level”; or (2)
has chosen to provide a warning based on its understanding about the presence of a listed chemical without attempting to evaluate the exposure.
Does this law apply everywhere?
Prop 65 warnings are required under California law only. These warnings are seen throughout California in a wide range of settings, including but not
limited to restaurants, grocery stores, hotels, schools, and hospitals, and on a wide variety of products. Additionally, some online and mail order
retailers provide Prop 65 warnings on their websites or in catalogs.
How do the California warnings compare to federal limits?
Prop 65 standards are often more stringent than federal and international standards. There are various substances that require a Prop 65 warning
at levels that are far lower than federal action limits. For example, the Prop 65 standard for warnings for lead is 0.5 μg/day, which is well below
the federal and international standards.
Why don’t all similar products carry the warning?
Products sold in California require Prop 65 labelling while similar products sold elsewhere do not.
The enforcement of Prop 65 is inconsistent.
A company involved in a Prop 65 lawsuit reaching a settlement may be required to use Prop 65 warnings for its products, but other companies
making similar products may have no such requirement.
Companies may elect not to provide warnings because they conclude that they are not required to do so under Prop 65; a lack of warnings for a
product does not mean that the product is free of listed chemicals at similar levels.
Why does Toro include this warning?
Toro has chosen to provide consumers with as much information as possible so that they can make informed decisions about the products they buy and
use. Toro provides warnings in certain cases based on its knowledge of the presence of one or more listed chemicals without evaluating the level of
exposure, as not all the listed chemicals provide exposure limit requirements. While the exposure from Toro products may be negligible or well within the
“no significant risk” range, out of an abundance of caution, Toro has elected to provide the Prop 65 warnings. Moreover, if Toro does not provide these
warnings, it could be sued by the State of California or by private parties seeking to enforce Prop 65 and subject to substantial penalties.
