BEFORE OPERATING
SECURING POWER SUPPLY CORD
The proper extension cord is a requirement for safe
and efficient use of your appliance. Your Toro
snowthrower has been designed for use with cord
size recommended in the Extension Cord Chart.
A WARNING
e Electric shock can cause injury or death.
e Use only a UL listed extension cord rec-
ommended for outdoor cold weather use.
Refer to Extension Cord Chart.
e Don't handle plug or appliance with wet
hands or while standing in water.

release the control bar (Fig. 5).
OPERATING TIPS
A WARNING
e Foreign objects can be thrown by
snowthrower in operator’s or bystander’s
direction.
e Thrown objects can cause serious person-
al injury.
e If an obstruction or foreign object is hit
while operating snowthrower, stop unit by
releasing the control bar, unplug extension
cord, remove obstruction, and check unit
for damage.
1. 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 cov-
ered by snowfall and, therefore, unnoticed until
struck by the rotor blades. Always be sure to keep
children and pets away from area of operation.
2. ADJUSTING DISCHARGE CHUTE—Rotate the
chute crank clockwise to move discharge chute to
the left and counterclockwise to move chute to the
right.
Note: The chute crank makes a noise as you turn
the crank. This is normal.
The deflector handle on top of the discharge chute
controls the height of the snow stream (Fig. 7).
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Figure 7
1. Chute deflector handle
A WARNING
e Do not force the chute deflector over the
stops because snow and anything that may
be picked up by snowthrower will fly into
the operator’s zone.
e Thrown objects could cause serious per-
sonal injury.
e Do not force the chute deflector over the
stops.
e Do not over—tighten deflector mounting
nuts so excessive force is required to adjust
deflector.
3. Begin snow removal near the electrical outlet
and work outward. Blow back and forth, not away
and toward outlet.
When turning at the end of a swath, step over the
cord and turn the snowthrower.
4. Always overlap each swath and discharge snow
downwind when possible.
5. Shave down large banks of snow by placing the
snowthrower on the bank. Lift the snowthrower by
the primary and secondary handles only (Fig. 8). Let
the unit's weight shave down the bank in a back and
forth motion.
6. When clearing steps or deep drifts, hold the unit
by the primary and secondary handles (Fig. 8) and
use a swinging or sweeping motion.
7. Keep extension cord clear of obstructions, sharp
objects, and all moving parts. Do not pull sharply on
cord or abuse it in any manner. Frequently inspect
cord for damage which could result in electric shock.
If cord becomes damaged in any way, replace it.
8. In some snow and cold weather conditions,
some controls and moving parts may freeze solid.
Therefore, when any control becomes hard to oper-
6
ate, stop the motor by releasing the control bar, and
check all parts for freeze up. DO NOT USE EXCES-
SIVE FORCE WHEN TRYING TO OPERATE THE
CONTROLS IF FROZEN. Free all controls and mov-
ing parts before operating.
A WARNING
e When using the secondary handle, never
direct snow discharge chute at operator or
bystanders. Foreign objects could be
thrown by snowthrower.
e Thrown objects could cause serious per-
sonal injury.
e When using the secondary handle, always
turn the discharge chute in the opposite
direction from where you or bystanders are
standing.
