General Conditions
All repairs covered by these warranties must be performed by an Authorized
Toro Service Dealer using Toro approved replacement parts. Repair by an
Authorized Toro Service 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 these warranties, including any
cost or expense of providing substitute equipment or service during
reasonable periods of malfunction or non-use pending completion of
repairs under these warranties.
All implied warranties of merchantability (that the product is fit for ordinary
use) and fitness for use (that the product is fit for a particular purpose) are
limited to the duration of the 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 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.

procedures described in the Operator's Manual. Such routine maintenance,

guarantee information, contact the Toro importer. If all other remedies fail, you may contact us at Toro Warranty Company.
