existing or proposed structures, characteristics of the
landscape, and other proposed jobs in the area scheduled
at the same time as your job.
Think Safety First
Note the following items at the job site:
Carefully read all safety instructions and symbols in the
safety section. Knowing this information could help you or
bystanders avoid injury.
– Changes in elevation in the proposed work area
– The condition and type of soil in the proposed work
area
DANGER
– Locations of structures, water, railroad tracks, and
other obstructions that you will need to work near
or around
Operating on wet grass or a steep slopes can cause
sliding and loss of control.
– Utility markers, meters, and poles
Wheels dropping over an edge can cause a rollover,
which may result in serious injury, drowning, or
death.
– If the work site is near or on a roadway with traffic,
call the local authorities regarding proper safety
procedures and regulations.
Always use the seat belt.
– Access to the site
Read and follow the rollover protection instructions
and warnings.
• Call your local One-Call service (811 in the US) or the
One-Call referral number (888-258-0808 in the US and
Canada) and ask the participating utility companies to
locate and mark their underground utility lines. Also call
utility providers that are not part of the One-Call system.
To avoid loss of control and possibility of rollover:
• Do not operate the machine near drop-offs or
near water.
• Reduce your ground speed and use extreme
caution on slopes.
• Avoid sudden turns or rapid changes in speed.
Adding Fuel to the Engine
Fuel tank capacity: 182 L (48 US gal)
Fuel type: ultra-low sulfur diesel (ULSD)
CAUTION
Note: Using other fuels can cause a loss of engine power
and high fuel consumption.
This machine produces sound levels that can cause
hearing loss through extended periods of exposure.
Important: Do not use kerosene or gasoline instead of
diesel fuel; otherwise, you will damage the engine.
Wear hearing protection when operating this
machine.
Use only diesel fuel for the machine that meets Specification
D975 of the American Society for Testing and Materials
International. See your diesel fuel distributor.
The use of protective equipment for eyes, ears, hands, feet,
and head is recommended.
1
Use only clean, fresh diesel fuel or biodiesel fuels with low
(<500 ppm) or ultra low (<15 ppm) sulfur content. The
minimum cetane rating should be 40. Purchase only enough
fuel that you expect to use within 30 days to ensure that it
stays fresh.
2
G009027
Use summer-grade diesel fuel (No. 2-D) at temperatures
above 20°F (-7°C) and winter-grade diesel fuel (No. 1-D or
No. 1-D/2-D blend) below 20°F (-7°C). Using winter-grade
fuel at lower temperatures provides a lower flash point and
cold flow characteristics, which aid in starting the engine and
help prevent clogging the fuel filter.
Figure 19
1. Wear safety glasses.
2. Wear hearing protection.
Preparing for Work
Using summer-grade fuel above 20° F (-7°C) contributes
toward a longer fuel pump life and increased power compared
to using winter-grade fuel.
Before operating the machine on the job site, review the
following items:
21
portion should be low or ultra-low sulfur. Observe the
following precautions:
• The biodiesel portion of the fuel must meet specification
ASTM D6751 or EN14214.
• The blended fuel composition should meet ASTM D975
or EN590.
• Biodiesel blends may damage painted surfaces.
• Use B5 with a biodiesel content of 5% or less in cold
weather.
• Check seals, hoses, and gaskets that come in contact with
the fuel, as they may degrade over time.
• The fuel filter may become plugged for a time after
converting to a biodiesel fuel blend.
• Contact your distributor for more information about
biodiesel fuel.
WARNING
Fuel is harmful or fatal if swallowed. Long-term
exposure to fuel vapors can cause serious injury
and illness.
• Avoid prolonged breathing of vapors.
• Keep your face away from the nozzle and the
fuel tank opening.
• Keep fuel away from your eyes and skin.
DANGER
In certain conditions, fuel is extremely flammable
and highly explosive. A fire or explosion from fuel
can burn you and others and can damage property.
• Fill the fuel tank outdoors in an open area when
the engine is cold. Wipe up any fuel that spills.
• Never fill the fuel tank inside an enclosed area.
• Never smoke when handling fuel, and stay away
from an open flame or where fuel fumes may be
ignited by a spark.
• Store fuel in an approved container, and keep
it out of the reach of children. Never buy more
than a 30-day supply of fuel.
• Do not operate the machine without the entire
exhaust system in place and in proper working
condition.
Storing Fuel
If you store fuel in a storage tank, it can accumulate foreign
material or water. Keep the fuel storage tank outside, and
keep the fuel as cool as possible. Remove water from the fuel
in the storage container at regular intervals.
Filling the Fuel Tank
Note: Fill the fuel tank of the machine at the end of each day
to prevent condensation in the fuel tank.
1. Clean around the fuel-tank cap (Figure 20), and remove
the cap from the tank.
In certain conditions, fueling can release static electricity and
cause a spark, which can ignite the fuel vapors. A fire or
explosion from fuel can burn you and others and can damage
property.
• Always place fuel containers on the ground, away from
your vehicle before filling.
• Do not fill fuel 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 the equipment from the truck
or trailer, and refuel the equipment with its wheels on
the ground.
• If refuelling the equipment with its wheels on the ground
is not possible, then refuel such equipment on a truck or
trailer from a portable container rather than from a fuel
dispenser nozzle.
• If you must use a fuel dispenser nozzle, keep the nozzle in
contact with the rim of the fuel tank or container opening
at all times until fueling is complete.

Service Interval: Before each use or daily
Note: The engine is shipped with oil in the crankcase;
however, check the oil level before and after you first start
the engine.
Oil specification: API classification of CJ-4 or higher
Use only high-quality SAE 15W-40 heavy-duty engine oil with
an API classification of CJ-4 or higher.
While SAE 15W-40 oil with an API classification of CJ-4 or
higher is recommended for most climates, refer to Figure 23
for oil viscosity recommendations for extreme climates.
Figure 24
1. Dipstick
2. Dipstick tube
Figure 23
Note: Limited use of low-viscosity oils such as SAE 10W-30
with an API classification of CJ-4 or higher can be used for
easier starting and providing sufficient oil flow at ambient
temperatures below -5°C (23°F). However, continuous use of
low-viscosity oil can decrease engine life.
Figure 25
5. Insert the dipstick fully into the dipstick tube, then
remove the dipstick (Figure 24).
Toro Premium Engine Oil is available from an Authorized
Toro Service Dealer in either 15W-40 or 10W-30 viscosity
with API classification CJ-4 or higher. See the Parts Catalog
for part numbers. Also, refer to the engine operator's manual,
included with the machine, for further recommendations.
6. Read the oil level on the dipstick (Figure 25).
Note: The oil level on the dipstick should be between
the H (high) mark and L (low) mark.
Important: If the oil level in the crankcase is too low
or too high and you run the engine, you may damage
the engine.
• If the oil level is too low, slowly pour a small
amount of the specified oil into the oil-filler neck
(Figure 64) and wait 3 minutes; refer to step 1 in
Filling the Engine with Oil (page 46).
Note: The best time to check the engine oil is when the
engine is cool before it has been started for the day. If the oil
level is at or below the Add mark on the dipstick, add oil to
the engine to bring the oil level up to the Full mark. Do not
overfill. If the oil level is between the Full and Add marks on
the dipstick, you do not need to add oil.
Important: Do not overfill the engine with oil.
• If the oil level is too high, drain the excess oil until
you obtain the correct oil level on the dipstick;
refer to Draining the Engine Oil (page 45).
1. Ensure that the machine is on a level surface.
7. Repeat steps 4 through 6 until the oil level is correct.
2. Lower all attachments, set the parking brake, stop the

the key from the key switch.
Breaking in a New or Rebuilt Engine
Note: A fully charged battery at -17ºC (0ºF) has
only 40% of the normal starting power. When the
temperature decreases to -29ºC (-20ºF), the battery has
only 18% of the normal power remaining.
During the first 20 hours of operation of a new or rebuilt
engine, do the following:
• Run the engine at a normal operating temperature.
• Do not run the engine at low idle speeds for long periods
Note: The machine comes with a maintenance-free
battery. If you use a different battery and add water to
it when the temperature is below 0ºC (32ºF), ensure
that you charge the battery or run the engine for about
2 hours to prevent the battery from freezing.
2. Inspect the battery cables and terminals. Clean the
terminals, and apply a coat of grease on each terminal
to prevent corrosion.
