MANUAL
| 826 and 1132 POWER SHIFT’ SNOWTHROWERS
dA SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
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 OPEI safety seal. To
assure maximum safety, best 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 be-
fore the engine is ever started. Pay particular attention to the safety alert symbol A which means
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.
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 Safety Instructions MAY RESULT IN PER-
SONAL 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 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 opera-
tion. 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 (wheel drive) control are in dis-
engaged 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. Since 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 a 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.

ÁN sareTy 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 the skids are not adjusted so auger hous-
ing 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 angle.
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 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 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 snowthrower
In an enclosure such as a garage or storage shed.
NEVER STORE SNOWTHROWER IN HOUSE (LIV-
ING AREA) OR BASEMENT BECAUSE GASOLINE
AND FUMES ARE HIGHLY FLAMMABLE, EXPLO-
SIVE, 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 ensures 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 & 12)
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 first 2 hours of operation; thereafter,
under normal conditions, change oil after every
25 hours of operation or annually, whichever
comes first.
The 1132 snowthrower has a dipstick in the oil fill tube
(Fig. 11) and the 828 snowthrower has an oil fill cap
(Fig. 12).
1. Move unit to a level surface to ensure an accu-
rate oil level reading.
2. Clean area around dipstick/oil fill cap.
3. Remove dipstick/oil fill cap from fill tube.
4. Slowly pour SAE 5W-30 or SAE 10 oil into the
filler hole; refer to Oil Fill Chart to determine correct
amount of oil. The engine uses any high—quality de-
tergent oil having the American Petroleum Institute
(API) “service classification” —SE, SF or SG.
Note: POUR OIL SLOWLY. DO NOT OVERFILL.

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
10
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. 13)—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. 13)—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. 13)—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. 13)—When auger/impeller
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. 13) —Rotate dis-
charge chute control clockwise to move discharge
chute to the right and counterclockwise to move
chute to the left.

POWER SHIFT OPERATION
Wheels will shift forward (or rearward) with every oth-
er movement of the shift control.
Move wheels to the rear Power 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 position, move
shift control fully forward to Power shift position and
hold (Fig. 18).
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. 20),
snowthrower free wheels. By contrast, when pins are
installed thru holes in wheel hub and inner hole of
axle (Fig. 20), snowthrower propels itself.
Figure 18
3. Fully engage traction drive lever to move wheels
into alternate position (Figs. 18 & 19).
Note: When power shifting it may be necessary to
slightly raise handle to assist wheel movement.
Note: To shift wheels manually if engine is not run-
ning, follow steps 1 and 2 and then lift up on handles
to unlock wheels.
Note: If wheels do not move in desired direction
when power shifting, repeat procedure.

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 parts 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 14.
7. Run snowthrower for a few minutes 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 low-
er gear to reduce forward speed.
13
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.
ÁN DANGER
e ROTATING IMPELLER OR AUGER CAN
CUT OFF OR INJURE FINGERS OR HANDS.
STAY BEHIND THE HANDLES AND AWAY
FROM DISCHARGE OPENING WHILE OPER-
ATING THE SNOWTHROWER. KEEP FACE,
HANDS, FEET AND ANY OTHER PART OF
YOUR BODY OR CLOTHING AWAY FROM
CONCEALED, MOVING OR ROTATING
PARTS.
e BEFORE ADJUSTING, CLEANING, RE-
PAIRING AND INSPECTING THE
SNOWTHROWER, AND BEFORE UNCLOG-
GING THE DISCHARGE CHUTE, SHUT EN-
GINE 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
HANDS, TO REMOVE OBSTRUCTIONS
FROM DISCHARGE CHUTE.
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.

cant (Fig. 25). Wipe up any excess oil.
Figure 25
1. Drive chain
CHANGING CRANKCASE OIL (Fig. 26)
Initially, change oil after the first 2 hours of engine
operation; thereafter, change oil after every 25 hours
of engine operation or annually, whichever comes
first. If possible, run engine just before changing oil
because warm oil flows better and carries more con-
taminants than cold oil.
3. After all oil is drained, reinstall oil drain cap se-
curely.
4. Position snowthrower on a level surface. Next, fill
crankcase with oil: see Fill Crankcase With Qil, page
9. Wipe up any oil that may have spilled.
AUGER GEAR BOX OIL (Fig. 27)
The auger gear box oil level must be checked at set-
up, after every 10 hours of use, and upon removal
from annual storage. To check the auger gear box
oil level:
1. Position snowthrower on a level surface.
2. Clean area around pipe plug so dirt is removed.
3. Remove pipe plug from gear box (Fig. 27).
4. Check level of oil in gear box. Oil must be at
point of overflowing in filler opening.
5. Iflevel of oil is low, add GL—5 or GL—6 SAE
85— 95 EP transmission oil to the gear box until point
of overflow.
Note: Do not use synthetic gear oil.
6. Reinstall pipe plug in gear box.

7. Move throttle control backward to idle speed.
Next, rotate idle speed adjusting screw until engine
idles fast—1750 rpm.
ÁN 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.
8. Rotate idle valve clockwise—in—until engine be-
gins 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 lean settings.
9. Again, rotate idle speed adjusting screw until
engine idles at 1750 rpm.
MAINTENANCE
10. Check carburetor adjustment by quickly moving
throttle from idle speed to high speed. Engine
should accelerate without hesitation or sputtering. If
engine does not accelerate properly, adjust carbure-
tor 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
between center and side electrodes of the spark
plug increases gradually during normal engine op-
eration, install a new plug after every 25 hours of en-
gine operation.
1. Clean area around spark plug so foreign matter
cannot fall into cylinder when plug is removed.
2. Pull wire off spark plug and remove 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 eventually
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. 38). 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 gasoline, refer to Draining Gasoline, page 15.
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 16.
4. Change crankcase oil: see Changing Crankcase
Oil, page 16.
5. 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.
6. Tighten all screws and nuts. If any part is dam-
aged, repair or replace it.
7. Store snowthrower in a clean, dry place, and
cover it for protection.
IDENTIFICATION AND ORDERING
MODEL AND SERIAL NUMBER
The snowthrower has two identification numbers: a
model number and a serial number. The two num-
bers are stamped on a decal which is located on
back of engine mounting plate. In any correspon-
dence concerning the snowthrower, supply model
and serial numbers to assure that correct information
and replacement parts are obtained.
To order replacement parts from an Authorized
TORO Service Dealer, supply the following informa-
tion:
1. Model and serial numbers of the snowthrower.
2. Part number, description, and quantity of part(s)
desired.
