Service
• Never operate machine in wet grass. Always be
sure of your footing; walk; never run.
• If the machine should start to vibrate abnormally,
Safe Handling of Gasoline
stop the engine and check for the cause
immediately. Vibration is generally a warning of
trouble.
To avoid personal injury or property damage, use
extreme care in handling gasoline. Gasoline is
extremely flammable and the vapors are explosive.
• Extinguish all cigarettes, cigars, pipes, and other
sources of ignition.
• Use only an approved gasoline container.
• Never remove gas cap or add fuel with the engine
running. Allow engine to cool before refueling.
• Never refuel the machine indoors.
• Never store the machine or fuel container where
there is an open flame, spark, or pilot light such as
on a water heater or on other appliances.
• Never fill containers inside a vehicle or on a truck
or trailer bed with a plastic liner. Always place
containers on the ground away from your vehicle
before filling.
• Remove gas-powered equipment from the truck
or trailer and refuel it on the ground. If this is
not possible, then refuel such equipment with a
portable container, rather than from 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. Do not use a nozzle lock-open device.
• If fuel is spilled on clothing, change clothing
immediately.
• Never overfill fuel tank. Replace gas cap and
tighten securely.
• Always wear eye protection when operating
machine.
• See manufacturer's instructions for proper
operation and installation of accessories. Only use
accessories approved by the manufacturer.
Slope Operation
Slopes are a major factor related to slip and fall
accidents, which can result in severe injury. Operation
on all slopes require extra caution. If you feel uneasy
on a slope, do not mow it.
• Mow across the face of slopes; never up and
down. Exercise extreme caution when changing
direction on slopes.
• Watch for holes, ruts, bumps, rocks, or other
hidden objects. Uneven terrain could cause a slip
and fall accident. Tall grass can hide obstacles.
• Do not mow on wet grass or excessively steep
slopes. Poor footing could cause a slip and fall
accident.
• Do not mow near drop-offs, ditches, or
embankments. You could lose your footing or
balance.
• When using the machine, always keep both hands
on the handlebar.
• When cutting steep slopes from the top of the
WARNING
slope and a longer reach is needed, never tie the
machine to a rope, use the extended handlebar
kit option.
Exhaust contains carbon monoxide, an
odorless, deadly poison that can kill you.
Do not run the engine indoors or in an
enclosed area.
Children
General Service
Tragic accidents can occur if the operator is not
alert to the presence of children. Children are often
attracted to the machine and the mowing activity.
Never assume that children will remain where you
last saw them.
• Never operate machine in a closed area.
• Keep all nuts and bolts tight to be sure the
•
• Keep children out of the mowing area and under
the watchful care of a responsible adult other than
the operator.

from the spark plug, and examine the machine for
damage.
• For best performance, install a new blade before
the cutting season begins.
• Replace the blade when necessary with a Toro
replacement blade.
Cutting Grass
• Cut only about a third of the grass blade at a
time. Do not cut below the 30 mm (1.2 inch)
setting (02602/02604) or 32 mm (1.25 inch) setting
(02606) unless the grass is sparse or it is late fall
when grass growth begins to slow down. Refer to
Adjusting the Cutting Height.
• Mowing grass over 15 cm (6 inches) in length is
g017366
not recommended. If the grass is too long, the
machine may plug and cause the engine to stall.
Figure 18
• Mow only dry grass or leaves. Wet grass and
leaves tend to clump on the yard and can cause
the machine to plug or the engine to stall.
Hauling
• Use care when loading or unloading the machine
WARNING
into a trailer or a truck.
Wet grass or leaves can cause serious
injury if you slip and contact the blade.
Mow only in dry conditions.
• Tie the machine down securely using straps,
chains, cable, or ropes. Both the front and the rear
straps should be directed down and outward from
the machine.
• Alternate the mowing direction. This helps
disperse the clippings over the lawn for even
fertilization.
Operating Tips
• If the finished lawn appearance is unsatisfactory,
try one or more of the following:
General Mowing Tips
– Replace the blade/line or have the blade
sharpened.
WARNING
– Walk at a slower pace while mowing.
Operating the machine on slopes of greater
than 45° will cause severe engine damage due
to a lack of lubrication. Some of the potential
damage could include stuck valves, scored
pistons, or burned crank bearings.
– Raise the cutting height on your machine.
– Cut the grass more frequently.
– Overlap cutting swaths instead of cutting a full
swath with each pass.
• Before operating on any slope, complete a
site survey to determine the actual slope
where you will operate the machine.
Cutting Leaves
• Do not operate the machine on slopes
greater than 45°.
• After cutting the lawn, ensure that half of the lawn

Owner Responsibilities
As the Product owner, you are responsible for required maintenance and
adjustments stated in your Operator's Manual. Failure to perform required
maintenance and adjustments can be grounds for disallowing a warranty
claim.
Items and Conditions Not Covered
Not all product failures or malfunctions that occur during the warranty
period are defects in materials or workmanship. This warranty does not
cover the following:
•
Product failures which result from the use of non-Toro replacement
parts, or from installation and use of add-on, or modified non-Toro
branded accessories and products. A separate warranty may be
provided by the manufacturer of these items.
•
Product failures which result from failure to perform recommended
maintenance and/or adjustments. Failure to properly maintain your
Toro product per the Recommended Maintenance listed in the
Operator’s Manual can result in claims for warranty being denied.
•
Product failures which result from operating the Product in an abusive,
negligent, or reckless manner.
•
Parts subject to consumption through use unless found to be defective.
Examples of parts which are consumed, or used up, during normal
Product operation include, but are not limited to, brake pads and
linings, clutch linings, blades, reels, rollers and bearings (sealed or
greasable), bed knives, spark plugs, castor wheels and bearings, tires,
filters, belts, and certain sprayer components such as diaphragms,
nozzles, and check valves, etc.
•
Failures caused by outside influence. Conditions considered to be
outside influence include, but are not limited to, weather, storage
practices, contamination, use of unapproved fuels, coolants, lubricants,
additives, fertilizers, water, or chemicals, etc.
•
Failure or performance issues due to the use of fuels (e.g. gasoline,
diesel, or biodiesel) that do not conform to their respective industry
standards.
•
•
Normal noise, vibration, wear and tear, and deterioration.
Normal “wear and tear” includes, but is not limited to, damage to seats
due to wear or abrasion, worn painted surfaces, scratched decals or
windows, etc.
Parts
Parts scheduled for replacement as required maintenance are warranted
for the period of time up to the scheduled replacement time for that part.
Parts replaced under this warranty are covered for the duration of the
original product warranty and become the property of Toro. Toro will make
the final decision whether to repair any existing part or assembly or replace
it. Toro may use remanufactured parts for warranty repairs.
Deep Cycle and Lithium-Ion Battery Warranty:
Deep cycle and Lithium-Ion batteries have a specified total number of
kilowatt-hours they can deliver during their lifetime. Operating, recharging,
and maintenance techniques can extend or reduce total battery life. As the
batteries in this product are consumed, the amount of useful work between
charging intervals will slowly decrease until the battery is completely worn
out. Replacement of worn out batteries, due to normal consumption,
is the responsibility of the product owner. Battery replacement may be
required during the normal product warranty period at owner’s expense.
Note: (Lithium-Ion battery only): A Lithium-Ion battery has a part only
prorated warranty beginning year 3 through year 5 based on the time
in service and kilowatt hours used. Refer to the Operator's Manual for
additional information.
Maintenance is at Owner’s Expense
Engine tune-up, lubrication, cleaning and polishing, replacement of filters,
coolant, and completing recommended maintenance are some of the
normal services Toro products require that are at the owner’s expense.
General Conditions
Repair by an Authorized Toro Distributor or Dealer is your sole remedy
under this warranty.
Neither The Toro Company nor Toro Warranty Company is liable for
indirect, incidental or consequential damages in connection with the
use of the Toro Products covered by this warranty, including any
cost or expense of providing substitute equipment or service during
reasonable periods of malfunction or non-use pending completion
of repairs under this warranty. Except for the Emissions warranty
referenced below, if applicable, there is no other express warranty. All
implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for use are limited to
the duration of this express warranty.
Some states do not allow exclusions of incidental or consequential
damages, or limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above
exclusions and limitations may not apply to you. This warranty gives you
specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from
state to state.
Note regarding engine warranty:
The Emissions Control System on your Product may be covered by
a separate warranty meeting requirements established by the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and/or the California Air Resources
Board (CARB). The hour limitations set forth above do not apply to the
Emissions Control System Warranty. Refer to the Engine Emission Control
Warranty Statement supplied with your product or contained in the engine
manufacturer’s documentation for details
Countries Other than the United States or Canada
Customers who have purchased Toro products exported from the United States or Canada should contact their Toro Distributor (Dealer) to obtain
guarantee policies for your country, province, or state. If for any reason you are dissatisfied with your Distributor's service or have difficulty obtaining
guarantee information, contact the Toro importer.
