MANUAL
(228 and 1132 POWER SHIFT SNOWTHROWERS
The 828 and 1132 POWER SHIFT SNOWTHROWERS meet or exceed the
Outdoor Power Equipment Institute’s safety standards for snowthrowers;
thus, Toro proudly displays the OPE! 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 А 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 personal injury.
The following instructions are compara-
ble to the Instructions For Safety
Snowthrowing adopted by the American
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 INJURY.
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 en-
gine quickly.
2. Keep everyone, especially children
and pets, away from 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 or damaged, 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 assure secure
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).
8. Always use a grounded three wire
plug and cord to start snowthrower
equipped with an electric starter.
9. Fill fuel tank with gasoline before
starting the engine. Avoid spilling any
gasoline. Since gasoline is highly flam-
mable, handle it carefully. DO NOT
SMOKE WHILE HANDLING GASOLINE.
A. Use an approved gasoline
container.

A\ SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
B. Fill fuel tank outdoors, not
indoors. NEVER ADD FUEL TO
AN ENGINE THAT IS RUNNING
OR HOT. Engine must be cool to
prevent a potential fire hazard.
C. Open doors if engine will be run
in the garage because exhaust
fumes are dangerous and could
possibly be deadly. Do not run
engine indoors.
D. Wipe up any spilled gasoline, and
reinstall gasoline container cap
and snowthrower fuel tank cap
securely before starting the
engine.
WHILE OPERATING
10. STAY BEHIND THE HANDLES AND
AWAY FROM DISCHARGE OPENING
WHILE OPERATING THE SNOW-
THROWER. Keep face, hands, feet,
and any other part of your body or
clothing away from concealed, moving,
or rotating parts.
11. BEFORE ADJUSTING, CLEANING,
REPAIRING, AND INSPECTING THE
SNOWTHROWER, AND BEFORE UN-
CLOGGING 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 START-
ING. USE A STICK TO REMOVE OB-
STRUCTIONS.
12. Keep people and pets a safe dis-
tance away from the snowthrower and
area of operation.
13. Allow engine to warm up for about
2 minutes and machine to adjust to
outdoor temperature before clearing
snow.
14. Do not run engine indoors, except
when starting engine. When starting
engine indoors, open outside doors be-
cause exhaust gasses are dangerous.
15. Operate the snowthrower only when
there is good visibility or light. Always
2
maintain secure footing and balance
and keep a firm grip on the handies,
especially when operating in reverse.
Walk; never run.
16. 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 the skids are
not adjusted so auger housing clears
ali rocks.
17. Do not make any adjustments while
the engine is running.
18. 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
discharge angle.
19. STAY AWAY FROM DISCHARGE
OPENING WHILE OPERATING THE
SNOWTHROWER. Keep face, hands,
feet, and any other part of your body
or clothing away from concealed, mov-
ing, or rotating parts.
20. 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. |
21. DO NOT USE SNOWTHROWER ON
A ROOF.
22. Do not overload the snowthrower
by clearing snow at too fast a rate.
23. If a solid object is hit or snow-
thrower vibrates abnormally, shut en-
gine off and wait for all moving parts to
stop. Pull high tension wire off spark
plug and check snowthrower immedi-
ately for possible damage, an obstruc-
tion, or loose parts. Vibration is gener-
ally a sign of trouble. Repair any dam-
age before restarting engine and oper-
ating snowthrower again.
A\ SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
24. Do not touch engine while it is run-
ning or soon after it is stopped be-
cause the engine will be hot enough to
cause a burn. Do not add oil or check
oil level in crankcase when engine is
running because this could be a poten-
tial hazard. |
25. Before leaving the operator's posi-
tion (behind handles), rotate ignition
key to OFF. Remove key from switch if
snowthrower will be left unattended.
26. Never operate snowthrower at high
transport speeds on slippery surfaces.
Use care when backing.
27. Let snowthrower run for a few min-
utes after clearing snow sO moving
parts do not freeze.
MAINTAINING SNOWTHROWER
28. Perform only those maintenance
instructions described in this manual.
Shut engine off before performing any
maintenance service or adjustment.
Additionally, pull high tension wire off
spark plug and keep wire away from
plug to prevent accidental starting. If
major repairs are ever needed, contact
your local Authorized TORO Service
Dealer for assistance.
29. Keep snowthrower in safe operating
condition by keeping nuts, bolts, and
screws tight. Check engine mounting
bolts frequently to assure they are
tight.
30. Do not overspeed the engine by
changing governor settings. Recom-
mended maximum engine speed is
3500 rpm. To assure safety and accu-
racy, check maximum engine speed
(3500 rpm) with a tachometer.
31. Allow engine to cool before storing
snowthrower in an enclosure such as a
garage or storage shed, and make
sure the snowthrower fuel tank is
empty. NEVER STORE
SNOWTHROWER IN HOUSE (LIVING
AREA) OR BASEMENT BECAUSE
GASOLINE AND FUMES ARE HIGHLY
FLAMMABLE, EXPLOSIVE, AND DAN-
- GEROUS IF INHALED. Do not store
snowthrower near any open flame or
where gasoline fumes may be ignited
by a spark.
32. 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 memora-
ble place. :
33. At the time of manufacture, the
snowthrower conformed with and ex-
ceeded safety standards in effect for
snowthrowers. Therefore, to assure op-
timum performance and safety, pur-
chase genuine TORO replacement parts
and accessories to keep the TORO all
TORO. NEVER USE “WILL FIT” RE-
PLACEMENT PARTS AND ACCESSO-
RIES. The TORO logo assures genuine-
ness.
34. For safety reasons, use only those
accessories and attachments recom-
mended by The TORO Company to as-
sure continued safety certification of
the product. Using unapproved acces-
sories and attachments could contrib-
ute to a potential hazard.
A) SAFETY DECALS
Safety decals and instructions are easily visible to the operator and are lo-
cated near any area of potential danger. Replace any decal that is damaged.

the gear box until point of overflow.
5. Install pipe plug in gear box.
BEFORE OPERATING
FILL CRANKCASE WITH OIL (Fig. 8)
The engine is shipped from the factory
without oil in the crankcase. Therefore,
before trying to start 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
8
first 2 hours of operation; thereafter,
under normal conditions, change oil
after every 25 hours of operation or
annually.
1. Move unit to a level surface to as-
sure an accurate oil level reading.
2. Clean area around dipstick to pre-
vent foreign matter from entering filler
hole when dipstick is removed.
BEFORE OPERATING
3. Remove dipstick from crankcase
(Fig. 8).

2. Filler hole
4. Slowly pour SAE 5W-30 or SAE 10
oil into the filler hole, using oil filler
chart below. The engine uses any
high-quality detergent oil having the
American Petroleum Institute (API)
“service classification” —SE or SF.
Oil Fill Chart
828 Snowthrower 44 ounces of oil
1132 Snowthrower 48 ounces of oil
Note: Dipstick must be fully installed to
assure accurate gauging of oil level.
DO NOT OVERFILL.
FILL FUEL TANK WITH GASOLINE
THE TORO COMPANY STRONGLY REC-
OMMENDS THE USE OF CLEAN, FRESH
UNLEADED REGULAR GASOLINE IN
TORO GASOLINE POWERED PROD-
UCTS. UNLEADED GASOLINE BURNS
CLEANER, EXTENDS ENGINE LIFE, AND
PROMOTES GOOD STARTING BY RE-
DUCING THE BUILDUP OF COMBUSTION
CHAMBER DEPOSITS. LEADED GASO-
LINE CAN BE USED IF UNLEADED IS
NOT AVAILABLE.
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. Al-
ways fill fuel tank outside and wipe
up any spilled gasoline before start-
ing engine. Use a funnel or spout
to prevent spilling gasoline, and fill
fuel tank to about 1/2” (13 mm)
from the top of the tank, not the
filler neck.
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 sup-
ply 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.
IMPORTANT: NEVER USE METHANOL,
GASOLINE CONTAINING METHANOL,
GASOHOL CONTAINING MORE THAN
10% ETHANOL, PREMIUM GASOLINE,
OR WHITE GAS BECAUSE ENGINE
FUEL SYSTEM DAMAGE COULD RE-
SULT.
BEFORE OPERATING
DO NOT USE FUEL ADDITIVES OTHER
THAN THOSE MANUFACTURED FOR
FUEL STABILIZATION DURING STOR-
AGE (SUCH AS TORO'S PRESERVIT
OR A SIMILAR PRODUCT). ADDITIVES
SHOULD NOT BE USED TO TRY TO
ENHANCE THE POWER OR PERFORM-
ANCE OF MACHINE,
1. Clean area around the fuel tank cap
(Fig. 8). Remove cap from fuel tank
and fill tank to within 1/2” (13 mm)
from the top with unleaded regular
gasoline. Reinstall fuel tank cap.
Fuel tank capacity is 4 quarts.

IMPORTANT: Check auger and impel-
ler to assure that both parts are not
frozen solid, but free to rotate. Also,
make sure discharge chute is not ob-
structed.
1. Move speed shift control to N (neu-
tral) and throttle to FAST (Fig. 9).
2. Open fuel shut-off valve below fuel
tank (Fig. 11).
3. Move choke to ON choke position
(Fig. 10).
4. Rotate ignition key to ON (Fig. 9).
5. Depress primer (Fig. 10) five times.
6. Grasp recoil starter handle (Fig. 13)
and pull it out slowly until positive en-
gagement 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, addi-
tional priming may be required.
7. After engine starts, immediately
move choke (Fig. 10) 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 po-
sition. When engine warms sufficiently,
move choke to OFF position.
BEFORE STOPPING ENGINE
1. Run engine for a few minutes to
help dry off any moisture which may
have accumulated on engine.
2. 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 pro-
duces a loud, clattering sound. This is
not harmful to the engine or the
starter.
TO STOP ENGINE
1. Release traction and auger/impeller
drive controls (Fig. 9).
2. Move speed shift control to N (neu-
tral).
3. Move throttle to slow and rotate ig-
nition key to OFF.
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
POWER SHIFT OPERATION

Shift position in heavy and/or drifted
SNOW.
Leave wheels in the front position for
light snow or for transporting
snowthrower.
1. Release traction drive lever.
2. To move wheels to front or rear po-
sition, move shift control fully forward
to Power shift position and hold
(Fig. 14).
3. Fully engage traction drive lever to
move wheels into Power Shift position
(Figs. 14 & 15).

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Figure 15
Note: If wheels do not move in desired
direction when power shifting, repeat
procedure. Wheels must rotate in for-
ward direction to move wheels ahead
and rotate rearward to move wheels
back.
FREE WHEELING OR SELF-
PROPELLED DRIVE
The snowthrower can be free wheeled
or engaged for self-propelled opera-
tion. When axle pins are through outer
axle holes (Fig. 16), snowthrower free
wheels. By contrast, when both pins
are installed through holes in wheel
hub and inner hole of axle (Fig. 16),
snowthrower will propel itself.
Figure 16
1. Axle pin
SNOWTHROWING TIPS
1. When snowthrower is not being
used, close fuel shut-off vaive, have
speed control in N (neutral) position,
and key removed from the switch.
2. Remove snow as soon as possible
after it falls. This produces best snow
removal results.
3. When in the Power Shift position,
push down on handies to increase
traction.
4. To remove snow from crushed rock
or gravel areas, adjust skids so bottom
of auger housing clears the rock: refer
to Adjusting Skids, page 13.
5. For concrete or asphalt surfaces,
adjust skids so there is 1/8 inch (3
mm) between bottom of auger and
concrete or asphalt surface.
6. Discharge snow downwind whenever
possible, and overlap each swath to
assure complete snow removal. If
wheels slip, shift into a lower gear to
reduce forward speed.
7. In some snow and cold weather
conditions, some controls and moving
parts may freeze solid. Therefore,
when any control becomes hard to op-
erate, stop the engine; then check all
parts for freeze up. DO NOT USE EX-
CESSIVE FORCE AND TRY TO OPERATE
THE CONTROLS WHEN FROZEN. Free
all controls and moving parts before
operating.
ADJUSTING SKIDS (Fig. 17)
To use snowthrower on concrete or as-
phalt surfaces, adjust skids using steps
1-2. However, use only step 3 when
using snowthrower on gravel or
crushed rock surfaces.
1. Move snowthrower to a level surface
and move wheels rearward into the
Power Shift position.
2. Next, loosen four flange bolts secur-
ing both skids to auger side plates.
Skids must slide up and down.
12
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
3. Adjust both skids so there is 1/8 of
an inch between bottom of auger and
level surface. When skids are adjusted
correctly, tighten flange bolts. Next,
check scraper blade that is mounted at
bottom of auger housing. Scraper must
be parallel with level surface. If scraper
is not parallel, adjust skids again. Do
not use step 3 after adjusting skids for
hard surfaces.
Figure 17
1. Flange bolts 2. Skid
4. Loosen four flange bolts securing
both skids to auger side plates. Next,
slide skids down as far as possible so
auger is as far from the level surface
as skid adjustment allows; then tighten
flange bolts.
ADJUSTING SCRAPER
If the amount of snow being picked up

2. Hose clamp
2. Place a clean drain pan under shut-
off valve.
3. Loosen hose clamps securing fuel
line to valve and slide line off valve
Since gasoline is highly flammable,
drain it outdoors and make sure
engine is cool to prevent a poten-
tial fire hazard. Wipe up any gaso-
line that may have spilled. Do not
drain gasoline near any open flame
or where gasoline fumes may be
ignited by a spark. DO NOT SMOKE
a cigar, cigarette, or pipe when
handling gasoline.
4. Open valve allowing fuel to flow into
drain pan.
5. Reinstall fuel line and secure with
hose clamp.
LUBRICATING SNOWTHROWER

CHANGING CRANKCASE OIL (Fig. 21)
Initially, change oil after the first 2
hours of engine operation; thereafter,
change oil after every 25 hours of en-
gine operation or annually. If possible,
run engine just before changing oil be-
cause warm oil flows better and carries
more contaminants than cold oil.

the factory so regular maintenance is
not required. However, if oil must be
replaced in gear box:
1. Drain gasoline from fuel tank. Wipe
up any spilled gas.
2. Position snowthrower on a level sur-
face.
3. Clean area around pipe plug so dirt
is removed.
4. Put a drain pan below front of auger
gear box and remove pipe plug: refer

adjustment of the carburetor can
be performed. To guard against
possible personal injury, move
auger drive and wheel drive con-
trols to DISENGAGE, and remember
to keep hands, feet, face, and
other part of the body away from
muffler, auger, discharge chute,
and any moving part(s).

6. Rotate needle valve clockwise—in—
until engine misses because of a lean
gasoline mixture. Then rotate needle
valve counterclockwise—out— until en-
gine runs unevenly because of a rich
gasoline mixture. Next, rotate 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 ad-
justing screw until engine idles
fast—1750 rpm.
8. Rotate idle valve clockwise—in—until
engine begins to miss because of a
lean mixture. Then rotate idle valve
counterclockwise—out—until engine
runs unevenly because of rich mixture.
- Next, rotate idle valve clockwise, back
to the mid-point between rich and lea
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 acceler-
ate without hesitation or sputtering. If
engine does not accelerate properly,
adjust carburetor to a slightly richer
mixture.
11. After carburetor is adjusted, shut
engine off.
MAINTENANCE
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 between
center and side electrodes of the spark
plug increases gradually during normal
engine operation, install a new plug af-
ter every 25 hours of engine operation.
1. Clean area around spark plug so
foreign matter cannot fall into cylinder
when plug is removed.
2. Pull wire off spark plug (Fig. 32)
and remove plug from cylinder head.
IMPORTANT: A cracked, fouled, or
dirty spark plug must be replaced. Do
not sand blast, scrape, or clean elec-
trodes because grit may eventually
release from the plug and fall into the
cylinder. The result will likely be en-
gine damage.
Figure 32
1. Spark plug wire
3. Set air gap between electrodes of
new spark plug at 0.030” (0.76 mm)
(Fig. 33). Next, install spark plug in
cylinder head. Tighten plug to 15 ft-lb
(20.4 N-m). If torque wrench is not
used, tighten plug firmly.
4. Push the wire onto spark plug.
Figure 33
PREPARING SNOWTHROWER FOR
STORAGE
1. Drain gasoline from fuel tank: refer
to Draining Gasoline, page 15. Wipe up
any gasoline that may have spilled.
2. Start the engine and let it run until it
stops because there is no gasoline in
the fuel system.
3. Remove spark plug from cylinder
head. Next, pour two teaspoons of en-
gine 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 cylinder.
4. Lubricate the snowthrower: refer to
Lubricating Snowthrower, page 15.
5. Change crankcase oil: see Changing
Crankcase Oil, page 15.
6. Ciean the snowthrower. Touch up
chipped surfaces with paint. Toro Re-
Kote paint is available from an Author-
ized TORO Service Dealer. Sand af-
fected areas before painting, and use
a rust preventative to prevent metal
parts from rusting.
7. Tighten all screws and nuts. If any
part is damaged, repair or replace it.
8. Store snowthrower in a clean, dry
place, and cover it for protection.
9. The snowthrower may be stored in
upright position. Be sure to drain gas
and oil before tipping snowthrower up-
right on auger housing.
