mum). Replace a damaged extension cord imme-
diately.
8. To prevent disconnection of snowthrower cord
from extension cord during operation, tie extension

A) SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
16. Clear snow from slopes by going up and
down; never across the face. Use caution when
changing directions. Never clear snow from steep
slopes.
17. Do not overload the snowthrower by clearing
snow at too fast a rate. Let the unit do the work.
18. If a solid object is hit or the snowthrower vi-
brates abnormally, stop the snowthrower and wait
for all movement to stop. Disconnect extension
cord and check the snowthrower immediately for
possible damage, an obstruction, or loose parts.
Vibration is generally a warning of trouble. Repair
any damage before operating the snowthrower
again.
19. If snowthrower will be left unattended, discon-
nect extension cord from receptacle and remove
key from handle.
20. Before adjusting, cleaning, repairing, or in-
specting the snowthrower, or before unclogging
the discharge chute, stop the snowthrower and
wait for all moving parts to stop. Also, disconnect
extension cord from receptacle to prevent acci-
dental starting.
21. Let snowthrower run for a few minutes after
clearing snow so moving parts do not freeze.
MAINTAINING SNOWTHROWER
22. Perform only those maintenance instructions
described in this manual. Disconnect cord from
receptacle before performing maintenance proce-
dures to prevent the possibility of accidental start-
ing. If major repairs are ever needed, contact your
local Authorized TORO Service Dealer for assis-
tance.
23. Keep snowthrower in safe operating condition
by keeping nuts, bolts, and screws tight. Check all
fasteners frequently to assure they are tight.
24. Store snowthrower indoors when not in use, in
a dry, locked-up place out of reach of children.
Disconnect extension cord from snowthrower be-
fore storing and remove key from handle. Store
key in a memorable place.
25. At the time of manufacture, the snowthrower
conformed to and exceeded safety standards in
effect for snowthrowers. Therefore, to assure opti-
mum performance and safety, purchase genuine
TORO replacement parts and accessories to keep
the Toro all TORO. NEVER USE “WILL FIT” RE-
PLACEMENT PARTS AND ACCESSORIES. The

genuine.

sert key into hole at rear of handle (Fig. 4).
3. Keep the area to be cleared free of stones,
toys, or other foreign objects which may be picked
up and thrown by the rotor blades. Such items
could be covered by snowfall and, therefore, un-
noticed until struck by the rotor blades. Always be
sure to keep children and pets away from area of
operation.
STARTING/STOPPING
To start rotor, make sure key is installed, and
squeeze the control handle. To stop, release the
control handle (Fig. 3).

(Fig. 3). The depth and weight of the snow gov-
erns the forward speed.
2. Do not tip the snowthrower to self-propel.
Push snowthrower along the scraper.
3. Direct the snow to left, right or straight ahead
by twisting the vane directional control attached to
the middle handle (Fig. 5).

could be thrown by the blades.
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

and rotor blades. Do not pull sharply on the cord
or abuse it in any manner. Frequently inspect cord
for damage. If damaged, replace it.
8. Remove the key and disconnect the extension
cord when through using the snowthrower. Keep
key in a memorable place so it will not be mis-
placed. Set the vanes in a vertical position and
hang snowthrower up by switch guard for conven-
ient storage and to prevent switch damage
(Fig. 6). Hang the extension cord with the
snowthrower so it will not be misplaced or possibly
damaged (Fig. 6).
