824 AND 1028 POWER SHIFT “SNOWTHROWERS
—
4) SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
The 824 and 1028 POWER SHIFT SNOWTHROWERS meet or exceed the Outdoor Power Equipment
Institute’s safety standards for snowthrowers; thus, Toro proudly displays the OPEI safety seal. To
assure maximum safety, optimum performance, and to gain knowledge of the product, it is essential
that you or any other operator of the snowthrower read and understand the contents of this manual
before the engine is ever started. Pay particular attention to the safety alert symbol
CAUTION, WARNING OR DANGER — “personal safety instruction.” Read and understand the instruc-
tion because it has to do with safety. Failure to comply with instruction may result in personal injury.
A which means
The following instructions are comparable to the In-
structions For Safe Snowthrowing adopted by the
American National Standards Institute (ANSI). The
snowthrower is designed and tested to offer reason-
ably safe service; however, failure to comply with the
following instructions MAY RESULT IN PERSONAL
INJURY.
WARNING: Engine exhaust contains carbon monox-
ide which is an odorless, deadly poison. Carbon
monoxide is also known to the State of California to
cause birth defects. Do not run engine indoors or in
an enclosed area.
BEFORE OPERATING
1. Read and understand the contents of this man-
ual before operating the snowthrower. Become famil-
iar with all controls and know how to stop the engine
quickly.
2. Keep everyone, especially children and pets,
away from snowthrower and area of operation.
Never allow children to operate the snowthrower.
Adults should operate the snowthrower only after
reading this manual.
3. Inspect area thoroughly where snowthrower will
be used. Remove doormats, sleds, boards, sticks,
wire, and any other foreign objects which might be
picked up and thrown by the snowthrower.
4. Keep all shields and safety devices in place. If a
shield, safety device or decal is illegible, damaged or
lost, repair or replace it before beginning operation.
Also, tighten any loose nuts, bolts or screws.
5. Wear adequate winter clothing and rubber boots
that will ensure proper footing on slippery surfaces.
Do not wear loose fitting clothing that could possibly
get caught in moving parts.
6. Adjust both skids so auger housing clears gravel
or crushed rock surfaces.
7. Before starting the engine, move speed shift
control to N (neutral) and ensure that auger/impeller
control and traction drive control are in disengaged
position.
8. Always use a grounded, three wire plug and
cord to start snowthrower equipped with an electric
starter. Extension cord must be connected to a prop-
erly grounded outlet.
9. Fill fuel tank with gasoline before starting the en-
gine. Avoid spilling any gasoline. Because gasoline
is highly flammable, handle it carefully. DO NOT
SMOKE WHILE HANDLING GASOLINE.
A. Use an approved gasoline container.
B. Fill fuel tank outdoors, not indoors. NEVER ADD
FUEL TO AN ENGINE THAT IS RUNNING OR
HOT. Engine must be cool to reduce potential fire
hazard.
C. Open doors if engine will be started in the garage
because exhaust fumes are dangerous and could
possibly be deadly. Do not run engine indoors.
D. Wipe up any spilled gasoline. Reinstall gasoline
container cap and snowthrower fuel tank cap se-
curely before starting the engine.
WHILE OPERATING
10. ROTATING IMPELLER OR AUGER CAN CUT
OFF OR INJURE FINGERS OR HANDS. STAY BE-
HIND THE HANDLES AND AWAY FROM DIS-
CHARGE OPENING WHILE OPERATING THE
SNOWTHROWER. KEEP FACE, HANDS, FEET,
AND ANY OTHER PART OF YOUR BODY OR
CLOTHING AWAY FROM CONCEALED, MOVING
OR ROTATING PARTS.

A) SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
11. BEFORE ADJUSTING, CLEANING, REPAIR-
ING, AND INSPECTING THE SNOWTHROWER,
AND BEFORE UNCLOGGING THE DISCHARGE
CHUTE, SHUT ENGINE OFF AND WAIT FOR ALL
MOVING PARTS TO STOP. ALSO, PULL WIRE OFF
SPARK PLUG AND KEEP WIRE AWAY FROM THE
PLUG TO PREVENT ACCIDENTAL STARTING.
USE A STICK, NOT YOUR HAND, TO REMOVE
OBSTRUCTIONS FROM DISCHARGE CHUTE.
12. Before leaving the operator’s position (behind
handles), rotate ignition key to OFF and wait for all
moving parts to stop. Remove key from switch if
snowthrower will be left unattended.
13. Allow engine to warm up outdoors before clear-
ing snow.
14. Operate the snowthrower only when there is
good visibility or light. Always maintain secure foot-
ing and balance and keep a firm grip on the handles,
especially when operating in reverse. Walk; never
run.
15. Be attentive when using the snowthrower, and
stay alert for holes in the terrain and other hidden
hazards. Be careful when clearing snow from a
gravel drive because stones could be picked up and
thrown if skids are not adjusted so auger housing
clears all rocks.
16. Do not make any adjustments while the engine
IS running.
17. Never direct discharge of snow or operate
snowthrower near bystanders, glass enclosures,
automobiles and trucks, window wells or a drop — off
without proper adjustment of the snow chute and
deflector.
18. Clear snow from slopes by going up and down,
never across the face. Use caution when changing
directions. Use lower gear and rear wheel position
when operating on slopes. Never clear snow from
steep slopes.
19. Do not overload the snowthrower by clearing
snow at too fast a rate.
20. DO NOT USE SNOWTHROWER ON A ROOF.
21. If a foreign object is hit or snowthrower vibrates
abnormally, stop engine by turning key to OFF and
wait for all moving parts to stop. Pull wire off spark
plug and check snowthrower immediately for possi-
ble damage, an obstruction or loose parts. Vibration
is generally a sign of trouble. Repair any damage
before starting engine and operating snowthrower
again.
EN-2
22. Do not touch engine while it is running or soon
after it is stopped because the engine will be hot
enough to cause a burn. Do not add oil or check oil
level in crankcase when engine is running.
23. Never operate snowthrower at high transport
speeds on slippery surfaces. Use care when back-
ing.
MAINTAINING SNOWTHROWER
24. Perform only those maintenance instructions de-
scribed in this manual. Shut engine off before per-
forming any maintenance service or adjustment. Ad-
ditionally, pull wire off spark plug and keep wire
away from plug to prevent accidental starting. If ma-
jor repairs are ever needed, contact your local
Authorized TORO Service Dealer for assistance.
25. Keep snowthrower in safe operating condition by
keeping nuts, bolts, and screws tight. Check engine
mounting bolts frequently to ensure they are tight.
26. Do not overspeed the engine by changing gov-
ernor settings: Recommended maximum engine
speed is 3500 rpm. To ensure safety and accuracy,
check maximum engine speed (3500 rpm) with a
tachometer.
27. Allow engine to cool before storing in an enclo-
sure such as a garage or storage shed. NEVER
STORE SNOWTHROWER IN HOUSE (LIVING
AREA) OR BASEMENT BECAUSE GASOLINE AND
FUMES ARE HIGHLY FLAMMABLE, EXPLOSIVE,
AND DANGEROUS IF INHALED. Do not store
snowthrower near any open flame or where gasoline
fumes may be ignited by a spark.
28. When storing the snowthrower for an extended
time—off season storage or 30 days—drain gasoline
from fuel tank to prevent a potential hazard. Store
gasoline in a safety —approved red metal container.
Remove key from ignition switch when storing
snowthrower. Store key in a memorable place.
29. At the time of manufacture, the snowthrower
conformed with or exceeded OPEI safety standards
in effect for snowthrowers. Therefore, to ensure best
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
TORO logo assures genuineness.
30. For safety reasons, use only those accessories
and attachments recommended by The TORO Com-
pany to ensure continued safety certification of the
product. Using unapproved accessories and attach-
ments could contribute to a potential hazard.

BEFORE OPERATING
FILL CRANKCASE WITH OIL (Fig. 11)
The engine is shipped from the factory without oil in
the crankcase. Therefore, before starting the engine,
oil must be added to the crankcase.
IMPORTANT: Check level of oil every 5 operating
hours or each time unit is used. Initially, change
oil after the first 2 hours of operation; thereafter,
under normal conditions, change oil after every
25 hours of operation or annually, whichever
comes first.
1. Move unit to a level surface to ensure an accu-
rate oil level reading.
2. Clean area around dipstick to prevent foreign
matter from entering filler hole when dipstick is re-
moved.
3. Remove dipstick from crankcase.
4. Slowly pour SAE 5W—-30 or SAE 10 oil into the
filler hole, using the filler chart below. The engine
uses any high—quality detergent oil having the
American Petroleum Institute (API) “service classifi-
cation”—SE, SF or SG.
Note: Dipstick must be fully installed to ensure accu-
rate gauging of oil level. DO NOT OVERFILL.

BEFORE OPERATING
A WARNING
DANGER: Because gasoline is flammable, caution must be used when storing or handling it. Do not
fill fuel tank while engine is running, hot, or when unit is in an enclosed area. Keep away from open
flame and electrical spark. DO NOT SMOKE while filling the fuel tank to prevent the possibility of an
explosion. Always fill fuel tank outside and wipe up any spilled gasoline before starting engine. Use
a funnel or spout to prevent spilling gasoline. Do not fill tank full. Fill fuel tank to about 1/4 ” to 1/2”
(6 to 13 mm) from the top of the tank, not into the filler neck. This space is for expansion of fuel.
Store gasoline in a clean, approved container and keep the cap in place on the container. Keep
gasoline in a cool, well-ventilated place—never in the house. To assure volatility, do not buy more
- than a 30 day supply of gasoline. Gasoline is a fuel for internal combustion engines. Therefore, do
not use it for any other purpose. Since many children like the smell of gasoline, keep it out of their
reach because the fumes are explosive and dangerous to inhale.
FILL FUEL TANK WITH GASOLINE
THE TORO COMPANY STRONGLY RECOMMENDS
THE USE OF CLEAN, FRESH UNLEADED REGU-
LAR GASOLINE IN TORO GASOLINE POWERED
PRODUCTS. UNLEADED GASOLINE BURNS
CLEANER, EXTENDS ENGINE LIFE, AND PRO-
MOTES GOOD STARTING BY REDUCING THE BUIL-
DUP OF COMBUSTION CHAMBER DEPOSITS.
LEADED GASOLINE CAN BE USED IF UNLEADED
IS NOT AVAILABLE. |
IMPORTANT: NEVER USE METHANOL, GASO-
LINE CONTAINING METHANOL, GASOHOL CON-
TAINING MORE THAN 10% ETHANOL, PREMIUM
GASOLINE, OR WHITE GAS BECAUSE ENGINE
FUEL SYSTEM DAMAGE COULD RESULT.
Toro also recommends that Toro Stabilizer/Condition-
er be used regularly in all Toro gasoline powered
products during operation and storage seasons.
Toro Stabilizer/Conditioner cleans the engine during
operation and prevents gum—like varnish deposits
from forming in the engine during periods of storage.
DO NOT USE FUEL ADDITIVES OTHER THAN
THOSE MANUFACTURED FOR FUEL STABILIZA-
TION DURING STORAGE SUCH AS TORO'S STA-
BILIZER/CONDITIONER OR A SIMILAR PROD-
UCT. TORO’S STABILIZER/CONDITIONER IS A
PETROLEUM DISTILLATE BASED CONDITIONER/
STABILIZER. TORO DOES NOT RECOMMEND
STABILIZERS WITH AN ALCOHOL BASE SUCH
AS ETHANOL, METHANOL OR ISOPROPYL. AD-
DITIVES SHOULD NOT BE USED TO TRY TO EN-
HANCE THE POWER OR PERFORMANCE OF MA-
CHINE.
1. Clean area around the fuel tank cap (Fig. 11).
Remove cap from fuel tank. Using unleaded, regular
gasoline, fill tank to within 1/4” to 1/2”
(6 to 13 mm) from the top of the tank, not into the
filler neck. This space is for expansion of fuel. Do not
fill tank full. Reinstall fuel tank cap.
Fuel tank capacity is 4 quarts.
CONTROLS
Auger/Impeller Control (Fig. 12)—Control has two
positions: ENGAGE and DISENGAGE. To engage
both auger and impeller, compress lever against
right handle grip. To disengage, release lever.
Traction Drive Control (Fig. 12)—To engage traction
(wheel drive) or activate power shift system, lever
must be compressed against left handle grip. To
stop traction, release lever.
Speed Shift Control (Fig. 12)—The control has a
neutral position, four speeds forward and two re-
verse, and also controls power shifting of wheels. To
select speeds, move shift control to desired position.
Note: When shifting gears into or out of reverse or
when using the Power Shift feature, the traction drive
control must be released. On—the—go shifting may
be accomplished between any of the forward speeds
without releasing the traction drive control.
Auger Lock—Up (Fig. 12)—When the auger/impel-
ler control and traction drive control are both com-
pressed, the traction control locks the auger/impeller
control down. Releasing the traction control releases
the auger/impeller control.
Discharge Chute Control (Fig. 12)—Rotate dis-
charge chute control clockwise to move discharge
chute to the right and counterclockwise to move
chute to the left. |
Ignition Switch (Fig. 12)—Switch has two positions:
ON and OFF. Rotate key to ON position before start-
ing engine. To stop engine, rotate key to OFF.

STARTING/STOPPING INSTRUCTIONS
TO START ENGINE
Note: If engine is operated when temperature is
+40° F (4° C) or higher, remove carburetor heater
box. However, the heater box (Fig. 17) must be rein-
stalled when temperature falls below +40° F (4° C).
To remove heater box:

A. Remove (2) mounting screws securing heater box
in place. Grasp choke knob and pull it off mount-
ing pin.
B. Lift heater box up and away from the engine, and
reinstall choke knob on mounting pin.
IMPORTANT: Check auger and impeller to ensure
that both parts are not frozen, but free to rotate.
Also, make sure discharge chute is not obstructed.
USE A STICK, NOT YOUR HAND, TO REMOVE
ANY OBSTRUCTIONS.
1. Move speed shift control to N (neutral) and throt-
tle to FAST (Fig. 12).
2. Ensure that auger/impeller control and traction
drive control are in disengaged position.
3. Open fuel shut—off valve below fuel tank
(Fig. 14).
4. Move choke to ON choke position (Fig. 13).
5. Rotate ignition key to ON (Fig. 12).
6. Cover hole in center of primer with thumb and
push primer three times slowly. DO NOT PRIME IF
THE ENGINE HAS BEEN RUNNING AND IS HOT.
Note: Excessive priming may cause flooding of en-
gine and failure to start.
7. Grasp recoil starter handle (Fig. 16) and pull it
out slowly until positive engagement results; then
pull vigorously to start the engine. Keep firm grip on
starter handle and return the rope slowly.
Note: If engine does not start or if temperature is
—10° F or below, additional priming may be re-
quired. After each additional prime, try to start the
engine before priming again.
8. After engine starts, immediately move choke
(Fig. 13) to 3/4 position. As engine warms up, move
choke to 1/2 position; then to OFF position. If engine
falters, return choke to 1/2 position. When engine
warms sufficiently, move choke to OFF position.
BEFORE STOPPING ENGINE
1. Engage auger to clear any remaining snow from
inside the housing.
2. Run engine for a few minutes to help dry off any
moisture which may have accumulated on engine.
3. With engine running, pull recoil starter with a
rapid, continuous full arm stroke three or four times.
This helps prevent possible freeze—up of recoil
starter due to extreme snow blowing conditions.
Note: Pulling of recoil starter rope produces a loud,
clattering sound. This is not harmful to the engine or
the starter.
TO STOP ENGINE
1. Release traction and auger/impeller drive con-
trols (Fig. 12).
2. Move throttle to slow and rotate ignition key to
OFF.
3. Wait for all moving parts to stop before leaving
‘the operator’s position (behind the handles).

SNOWTHROWING TIPS
1. When snowthrower is not being used, close fuel
shut—off valve and remove key from the switch.
2. Remove snow as soon as possible after it falls.
This produces best snow removal results.
3. When in the rear Power Shift position, push
down on handles to increase traction if necessary.
4, Discharge snow downwind whenever possible,
and overlap each swath to ensure complete snow
removal. If wheels slip, shift into a lower gear to re-
duce forward speed.
5. In some snow and cold weather conditions,
some controls and moving paris may freeze. There-
fore, when any control becomes hard to operate,
stop the engine and wait for all moving parts to stop;
then check all parts for freeze up. DO NOT USE EX-
CESSIVE FORCE AND TRY TO OPERATE THE CON-
TROLS WHEN FROZEN. Free all controls and mov-
ing parts before operating. -
6. Adjust skids to match the type of surface being
cleaned. Refer to Adjusting Skids, page 15.
7. Run snowthrower for a few minutes after clearing
snow so moving parts do not freeze. Engage auger
Figure 19 to clear any remaining snow from inside housing.
8. Do not overload snowthrower by clearing snow
Note: If wheels do not move in desired direction at too fast a rate. If engine slows down, shift to a low-
when power shifting, repeat procedure. er gear to reduce forward speed.
EN-14
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
9. Move wheels to the rear Power Shift position and
shift to a lower gear in heavy and/or drifted snow to
prevent the auger housing from riding up over the
snow.
10. Always use full throttle (maximum engine speed)
when throwing snow. |
11. In wet or slushy conditions, clogging of the dis-
charge chute will be reduced by maintaining maxi-
mum engine speed and by not overloading the en-
gine.

3. Move the snowthrower onto a flat surface and
shift the wheels to the FRONT position.
4. Loosen the (4) flange bolts securing both skids
to the auger side plates.
5. Next, loosen the carriage bolts securing the
scraper to the auger housing.
6. Support the auger blades so that the auger is
1/8 — 1/4 inch off the ground.
7. Move the scraper so that it contacts the flat sur-
face all the way across, then tighten the two rear
flanged cap screws securing scraper and skids to
the side plates. This temporarily locks the scraper in
the proper position so that the remainder of the fas-
teners can be tightened without affecting adjust-
ment. |
8. Secure the scraper using carriage bolts and ny-
lon locknuts. |
9. Adjust the skids; refer to Adjusting Skids,
page 15.
ADJUSTING SKIDS (Fig. 22)

to prevent picking up rocks.
1. Pull wire off spark plug and make sure wire does
not contact plug accidentally.
2. Loosen the (4) flange bolts securing both skids
to auger side plates. Next, slide skids down as far as
possible so auger will be supported as far from the
level surface as skid adjustment allows: then tighten
flange bolts.
ADJUSTING HEADLIGHT
1. Rotate headlight to desired position. If light is
difficult to move, loosen locknut (Fig. 23).
2. If necessary, tighten locknut to secure headlight

ADJUSTING CARBURETOR (Fig. 37)
The carburetor has been adjusted at the factory, but
an occasional adjustment may be required.
1. Remove carburetor heater box: see To Start En-
gine, paragraph one, steps A & B, page 13.
Note: Skip steps 2 and 3 if the engine will start and
run.
2. Power Adjusting Screw—Close screw by gently
rotating it clockwise until a slight seating resistance
is felt. Next, rotate power adjusting screw 1 full
turn—360°—counterclockwise.
IMPORTANT: Do not close power adjusting screw
or idle mixture screw too tight because the screw
and seat will likely be damaged.
3. Idle Mixture Screw—Close screw by gently rotat-
ing it clockwise until a slight seating resistance is felt.
Next, rotate idle mixture screw 1—1/2 full turns coun-
terclockwise.

2. Idle mixture screw
4. Start engine and let it warm up for approximately
3 to 5 minutes; then move throttle to FAST.
AN WaRninG
Engine must be running so final adjustment of
the carburetor can be performed. To guard
against possible personal injury, move auger
drive and wheel drive controls to DISENGAGE,
and remember to keep hands, feet, face, and
other part of your body or clothing away from
muffler, auger, discharge chute, and any mov-
ing part(s).
AN WaRNING
Engine exhaust contains carbon monoxide
which is an odorless, deadly poison. Do not
run engine indoors or in an enclosed area.
5. Rotate power adjusting screw clockwise—
in—1/8 turn at a time until engine misses because of
a lean gasoline mixture. Then rotate screw counter-
clockwise—out—1/8 turn at time until engine runs
unevenly because of a rich gasoline mixture. Next,
rotate power adjusting screw clockwise, back to the
midpoint between the rich and lean setting, so en-
gine runs smoothly.
Note: Wait several seconds between each 1/8 turn
setting so engine can adjust to the new fuel mixture.
6. Move throttle to idle speed. Next, rotate idle |
speed screw until engine idles fast—1750 rpm.
EN-21
MAINTENANCE
7. Rotate idle mixture screw clockwise—in—1/8
turn at a time until engine begins to miss because of
a lean mixture. Then rotate screw counterclock-
wise—out—1/8 turn at a time until engine runs un-
evenly because of rich mixture. Next, rotate idle mix-
ture screw clockwise, back to the mid-point be-
tween rich and lean settings.
Note: Wait several seconds between each 1/8 turn
setting so engine can adjust to the new fuel mixture.
8. Again, rotate idle speed screw until engine idles
at 1750 rpm.
9. Check carburetor adjustment by quickly moving
throttle from low speed to high speed. Engine should
accelerate without hesitation or sputtering. If engine
does not accelerate properly, adjust carburetor to a
slightly richer mixture. Also, if engine falters under
load, open power adjusting screw 1/8 turn counter-
clockwise.
10. After carburetor is adjusted, shut engine off be-
fore replacing carburetor heater box.
REPLACING SPARK PLUG
Use a Champion RJ—19LM spark plug or equivalent.
Set air gap at 0.030” (0.76 mm). Since air gap be-
tween center and side electrodes of the spark plug
increases gradually during normal engine operation,
install a new plug after every 25 hours of engine op-
eration.
1. Clean area around spark plug so foreign matter
cannot fall into cylinder when plug is removed.
2. Pull wire off spark plug (Fig. 38) and remove
plug from cylinder head. |
3. Setair gap between electrodes of new spark
plug at 0.030” (0.76 mm) (Fig. 39). Next, install spark
plug in cylinder head. Tighten plug to 15 ft—Ib (20.4

PREPARING SNOWTHROWER FOR
STORAGE |
1. For long term storage, either drain gasoline from
fuel tank or use a fuel additive before storing. To
drain gasoline, refer to Draining Gasoline, page 16.
After fuel is drained, start engine and let it idle until
all fuel is consumed and engine stops. Repeat the
starting procedure two more times to assure all gas
is removed from the engine. If gasoline is not
drained, gum—like varnish deposits will form and
cause poor engine operation and starting problems.
Fuel can be left in gas tank only if a fuel additive,
such as Toro’s Stabilizer/Conditioner, is added to
gasoline and run through engine before storing.
Toro’s Stabilizer/Conditioner is a petroleum distillate
based conditioner/stabilizer. Toro does not recom-
mend stabilizers with an alcohol base, such as etha-
nol, methanol or isopropyl. Use fuel additive in rec-
ommended quantities as specified on container.
Under normal conditions, fuel additives remain effec-
tive in fuel for 6—8 months.
2. Remove spark plug from cylinder head. Next,
pour two teaspoons of engine oil into spark plug
hole in cylinder head. Install spark plug in cylinder
head, but do not install wire on the plug. Then pull
recoil starter slowly to distribute oil on inside of cylin-
der.
3. Lubricate the snowthrower: refer to Lubricating
Snowthrower, page 17. Change crankcase oil: see
Changing Crankcase Oil, page 17.
4. Clean the snowthrower. Touch up chipped sur-
faces with paint. Toro Re—Kote paint is available
from an Authorized TORO Service Dealer. Sand af-
fected areas before painting, and use a rust preven-
tative to prevent metal parts from rusting.
5. Tighten all screws and nuts. If any part is dam-
aged, repair or replace it.
6. Store snowthrower in a clean, dry place, and
cover it for protection.
