a.
The 1132 POWER SHIFT SNOWTHROWER meets or exceeds 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 which means CAUTION, WARNING OR DANGER —
“personal safety instruction.” Read and understand the instruction because
it has to do with safety. Failure to comply with instruction may result in per-
sonal injury.
The following instructions are compa-
rable to the Instructions For Safe
Snowthrowing adopted by the Ameri-
can National Standards Institute
(ANSI). The snowthrower is designed
and tested to offer reasonably safe
service; however, failure to comply
with the following Safety Instructions
MAY RESULT IN PERSONAL IN-
JURY.
WARNING: Engine exhaust contains
carbon monoxide which is an odor-
less, deadly poison. Carbon monox-
ide is also known to the State of Cal-
ifornia to cause birth defects. Do not
run engine indoors or in an enclosed
area.
BEFORE OPERATING
1. Read and understand the contents
of this manual before operating the
snowthrower. Become familiar with all
controls and know how to stop the
engine quickly.
2. Keep everyone, especially children
and pets, away from area of opera-
tion. Never aliow children to operate
the snowthrower. Adults should oper-
ate the snowthrower only after read-
ing 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 de-
vices in place. If a shield, safety de-
vice, 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 hous-
ing 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 (wheel drive) control are
in disengaged position.

ÁN SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
8. Always use a grounded three wire
plug and cord to start snowthrower
equipped with an electric starter. Ex-
tension cord must be connected to a
properly grounded outlet.
9. Fill fuel tank with gasoline before
starting the engine. Avoid spilling any
gasoline. Since gasoline is highly
flammable, handle it carefully. DO
NOT SMOKE WHILE HANDLING
GASOLINE.
A. Use an approved gasoline contain-
er.
B. Fill fuel tank outdoors, not in-
doors. NEVER ADD FUEL TO AN
ENGINE THAT IS RUNNING OR
HOT. Engine must be cool to re-
duce a potential fire hazard.
C. Open doors if engine will be
Started in the garage because ex
haust fumes are dangerous and
could possibly be deadly. Do not
run engine indoors.
D. Wipe up any spilled gasoline. Re-
install gasoline container cap and
snowthrower fuel tank cap se-
curely before starting the engine.

12. Before leaving the operator's po-
sition (behind handles), rotate igni-
tion key to OFF and wait for all mov-
ing parts to stop. Remove key from
switch if snowthrower will be left un-
attended.
13. Allow engine to warm up out-
doors before clearing snow.
14. Operate the snowthrower only
when there is good visibility or light.
Always maintain secure footing 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 haz-
ards. Be careful when clearing snow
from a gravel drive because stones
could be picked up and thrown if the
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 by-
standers, glass enclosures, automo-
biles and trucks, window wells or a
drop-off without proper adjustment of
the snow chute and deflector angie.
18. Clear snow from slopes by going
up and down, never across the face.
Use caution when changing direc-
tions. 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.
ÁN SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
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 possible
damage, an obstruction or loose
parts. Vibration is generally a sign of
trouble. Repair any damage before
restarting engine and operating
snowthrower again.
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 backing.
MAINTAINING SNOWTHROWER
24. Perform only those maintenance
instructions described in this manual.
Shut engine off before performing
any maintenance service or adjust-
ment. Additionally, 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 operat-
ing 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 governor settings. Recom-
mended maximum engine speed is
3500 rpm. To ensure safety and ac-
curacy, check maximum engine
speed (3500 rpm) with a tachome-
ter.
27. Allow engine to cool before stor-
ing snowthrower in an enclosure such
as a garage or storage shed. NEVER
STORE SNOWTHROWER IN HOUSE
(LIVING AREA) OR BASEMENT BE-
CAUSE 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 memo-
rable place.
29. At the time of manufacture, the
snowthrower conformed with or ex-
ceeded OPE! safety standards in ef-
fect 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” REPLACEMENT PARTS AND
ACCESSORIES. The TORO logo en-
sures genuineness.
30. For safety reasons, use only
those accessories and attachments
recommended by The TORO Com-
pany to ensure continued safety cer-
tification of the product. Using unap-
proved accessories and attachments
could contribute to a potential haz-
ard.

BEFORE OPERATING
FILL CRANKCASE WITH OIL Oil Fill Chart
(Fig. 11)
The engine is shipped from the fac-
tory without oil in the crankcase.
Therefore, before trying to start the
1132 Snowthrower 48 ounces of oil
engine, oil must be added to the Note: Dipstick must be fully installed
crankcase. to ensure accurate gauging of oil
IMPORTANT: Check level of oil level. DO NOT OVERFILL.
every 5 operating hours or each
time unit is used. Initially, change
oil after the first 2 hours of opera-
tion; thereafter, under normal con-
ditions, change oil after every 25
hours of operation or annually,
whichever comes first.
1. Move unit to a level surface to en-
sure an accurate oil level reading.
2. Clean area around dipstick to pre-
vent foreign matter from entering
filler hole when dipstick is removed.
3. Remove dipstick from crankcase.
4. Slowly pour SAE 5W-30 or SAE 10
oil into the filler hole, using the fol- DN
lowing oil fill chart. The engine uses Figure 11
any high-quality detergent oil having
the American Petroleum Institute
(API) “service classification” —SE, SF
or Sa.
1. Dipstick 3. Fuel tank cap
2. Filler hole
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 explo-
sion. 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 gaso-
line. 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.

BEFORE OPERATING
FILL FUEL TANK WITH GASOLINE
THE TORO COMPANY STRONGLY
RECOMMENDS THE USE OF CLEAN,
FRESH UNLEADED REGULAR GASO-
LINE IN TORO GASOLINE POWERED
PRODUCTS. UNLEADED GASOLINE
BURNS CLEANER, EXTENDS ENGINE
LIFE, AND PROMOTES GOOD START-
ING BY REDUCING THE BUILDUP OF
COMBUSTION CHAMBER DEPOSITS.
LEADED GASOLINE CAN BE USED IF
UNLEADED IS NOT AVAILABLE.
IMPORTANT: NEVER USE METHA-
NOL, GASOLINE CONTAINING
METHANOL, GASOHOL CONTAINING
MORE THAN 10% ETHANOL, PRE-
MIUM GASOLINE, OR WHITE GAS
BECAUSE ENGINE FUEL SYSTEM
DAMAGE COULD RESULT.
Toro also recommends that Toro Sta-
bilizer/Conditioner be used regularly
in all Toro gasoline powered products
during operation and storage sea-
sons. Toro Stabilizer/Conditioner
cleans the engine during operation
and prevents gum-like varnish de-
posits from forming in the engine
during periods of storage.
DO NOT USE FUEL ADDITIVES
OTHER THAN THOSE MANUFAC-
TURED FOR FUEL STABILIZATION
DURING STORAGE SUCH AS
TORO'S STABILIZER/CONDITIONER
OR A SIMILAR PRODUCT. TORO'S
STABILIZER/CONDITIONER IS A PE-
TROLEUM DISTILLATE BASED CON-
DITIONER/STABILIZER. TORO DOES
NOT RECOMMEND STABILIZERS
WITH AN ALCOHOL BASE SUCH AS
ETHANOL, METHANOL OR ISOPRO-
PYL. ADDITIVES SHOULD NOT BE
USED TO TRY TO ENHANCE 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 gaso-
line, 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/impelier Control
(Fig. 12) Control has two positions:
ENGAGE and DISENGACE. 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 acti-
vate power shift system, lever must
be compressed against left handle
grip. To stop traction, release lever.

of reverse or when using the Power
Shift feature, the traction drive con-
trol must be released. On-the-go
shifting may be accomplished be-
tween any of the forward speeds
without releasing the traction drive
control.
Auger Lock-Up (Fig. 12)—When
auger/impeller control and traction
drive control are both compressed,
the traction control locks the auger/
impeller control down. Releasing the
traction control releases the auger/
impeller control.
Discharge Chute Control
(Fig. 12)—Rotate discharge chute
control clockwise to move discharge
chute to the right and counterclock-
wise to move chute to the left.

FREE WHEELING OR SELF-
PROPELLED DRIVE
The snowthrower can be free
wheeled or engaged for self-
propelled operation. There are two
holes in each end of the axle. When
axle pins are thru outer axle holes
and not thru wheel hub(Fig. 19),
snowthrower free wheels. By con-
trast, when pins are installed thru
holes in wheel hub and inner hole of
axle (Fig. 19), snowthrower propels
itself.

SNOWTHROWING TIPS
1. When snowthrower is not being
used, close fuel shut-off valve and
remove key from the switch.
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
2. Remove snow as soon as possible
after it falls. This produces best snow
removal results.
3. When in the rear Power Shift posi-
tion, push down on handles to in-
crease traction if necessary.
4. Discharge snow downwind when-
ever possible, and overlap each
swath to ensure complete snow re-
moval. If wheels slip, shift into a
lower gear to reduce forward speed.
5. In some snow and cold weather
conditions, some controls and mov-
ing parts may freeze. Therefore,
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
EXCESSIVE FORCE AND TRY TO OP-
ERATE THE CONTROLS WHEN FRO-
ZEN. Free all controls and moving
parts before operating.
6. Adjust skids to match the type of
surface being cleaned. Refer to Ad-
justing Skids, page 18.
7. Run snowthrower for a few min-
utes after clearing snow so moving
parts do not freeze. Engage auger to
clear any remaining snow from inside
housing.
8. Do not overload snowthrower by
clearing snow at too fast a rate. If
engine slows down, shift to a lower
gear to reduce forward speed.
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 rid-
ing up over the snow.
10. Always use full throttle (maximum
engine speed) when throwing snow.
11. In wet or slushy conditions, clog-
ging of the discharge chute will be
reduced by maintaining maximum en-
gine speed and by not overloading
the engine.

6. Rotate needie valve clockwise—
in—until engine misses because of a
lean gasoline mixture. Then rotate
needie valve counterciockwise—out—
until engine runs unevenly because
of a rich gasoline mixture. Next, ro-
tate needle valve clockwise, back to
the midpoint between the rich and
lean setting, so engine runs
smoothly.
7. Move throttle control backward to
idle speed. Next, rotate idle speed
adjusting screw until engine idles
fast—1750 rpm.
25
MAINTENANCE
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 parts of
your body and clothing away
from muffler, auger, discharge
chute, and any moving part(s).
Engine exhaust contains carbon
monoxide which is an odorless,
deadly poison. Do not run engine
indoors or in an enclosed area.
8. Rotate idle valve clockwise—in—
until engine begins to miss because
of a lean mixture. Then rotate idle
valve counterclockwise—out—until en-
gine runs unevenly because of rich
mixture. Next, rotate idle valve clock-
wise, back to the mid-point between
rich and lean settings.
9. Again, rotate idle speed adjusting
screw until engine idles at 1750 rpm.
10. Check carburetor adjustment by
quickly moving throttle from idle
speed to high speed. Engine should
accelerate without hesitation or sput-
tering. If engine does not accelerate
properly, adjust carburetor to a
slightly richer mixture.
11. After carburetor is adjusted, shut
engine off.
REPLACING SPARK PLUG
Use a Champion RCJ-8 or Autolite
AR7N spark plug. Set air gap at
0.030” (0.76 mm). Since air gap be-
tween center and side electrodes of
26
the spark plug increases gradually
during normal engine operation, in-
stall a new plug after every 25 hours
of engine operation.
1. Clean area around spark plug so
foreign matter cannot fall into cylin-
der when plug is removed.
2. Pull wire off spark plug and re-
move plug from cylinder head.
IMPORTANT: A cracked, fouled, or
dirty spark plug must be replaced.
Do not sand blast, scrape, or clean
electrodes because grit may eventu-
ally release from the plug and fall
into the cylinder. The result will
likely be engine damage.
3. Set air gap between electrodes of
new spark plug at 0.030” (0.76 mm)
(Fig. 37). Next, install spark plug in
cylinder head. Tighten plug to 15 ft-
Ib (20.4 N.m).
4. Push the wire onto spark plug.

PREPARING SNOWTHROWER FOR
STORAGE
1. For long term storage, either drain
gasoline from fuel tank or use a fuel
additive before storing. To drain gas-
oline, refer to Draining Gasoline,
page 19. 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 op-
eration and starting problems.
MAINTENANCE
Fuel can be left in gas tank only if a
fuel additive, such as Toro's Stabiliz-
er/Conditioner, is added to gasoline
and run through engine before stor-
ing. Toro's Stabilizer/Conditioner is a
petroleum distillate based condition-
er/stabilizer. Toro does not recom-
mend stabilizers with an alcohol
base, such as ethanol, methanol or
isopropyl. Use fuel additive in recom-
mended quantities as specified on
container.
Under normal conditions, fuel addi-
tives remain effective 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 cyl-
inder head. Install spark plug in cylin-
der head, but do not install wire on
the plug. Then pull recoil starter
slowly to distribute oil on inside of
cylinder.
3. Lubricate the snowthrower: refer
to Lubricating Snowthrower, page 19.
Change crankcase oil: see Changing
Crankcase Oil, page 20.
4. Clean the snowthrower. Touch up
chipped surfaces with paint. Toro
Re-Kote paint is available from an
Authorized TORO Service Dealer.
Sand affected areas before painting,
and use a rust preventative to pre-
vent metal parts from rusting.
5. Tighten all screws and nuts. If any
part is damaged, repair or replace it.
6. Store snowthrower in a clean, dry
place, and cover it for protection.
IDENTIFICATION AND ORDERING
MODEL AND SERIAL NUMBER
The snowthrower has two identifica-
tion numbers: a model number and a
serial number. The two numbers are
stamped on a decal which is located
on back of engine mounting plate. In
any correspondence concerning the
