Safety
To ensure 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
before the motor 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 instruction because it has to do
with safety. Failure to comply with instruction
may result in personal injury.
The following instructions are comparable to the
Instructions For Safe 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 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 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
properly grounded outlet.
9. Fill fuel tank with gasoline before starting the
engine. 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 securely before starting the
engine.

Allow engine to warm up outdoors before
clearing snow.
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.
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.
Do not make any adjustments while the engine is
running.
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.
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.
Do not overload the snowthrower by clearing
snow at too fast a rate.
DO NOT USE SNOWTHROWER ON A
ROOF.
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 starting
engine and operating snowthrower again.
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
adjustment. Additionally, pull 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.
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
governor settings.
27. Allow engine to cool before storing in an
enclosure such as a garage or storage shed.
NEVER STORE SNOWTHROWER IN
HOUSE (LIVING AREA) OR BASEMENT
BECAUSE GASOLINE AND FUMES ARE
28.
30.
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.
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.
. 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” REPLACEMENT
PARTS AND ACCESSORIES. The TORO
logo assures genuineness.
For safety reasons, use only those accessories
and attachments recommended by The TORO
Company to ensure continued safety certification
of the product. Using unapproved accessories
and attachments could contribute to a potential
hazard.

Fill Fuel Tank With Gasoline
ÁN DANGER
POTENTIAL HAZARD
e In certain conditions gasoline is extremely
flammable and highly explosive.
WHAT CAN HAPPEN
e A fire or explosion from gasoline can burn
you, others, and cause property damage.
HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD
e Use a funnel and fill the fuel tank outdoors,
in an open area, when the engine is cold.
Wipe up any gasoline that spills.
e Do not fill the fuel tank completely full.
Add gasoline to the fuel tank until the level
is 1/4” to 1/2” (6 mm to 13 mm) below the
bottom of the filler neck. This empty space
in the tank allows gasoline to expand.
e Never smoke when handling gasoline, and
stay away from an open flame or where
gasoline fumes may be ignited by a spark.
® Store gasoline in an approved container
and keep it out of the reach of children.
¢ Never buy more than a 30-day supply of
gasoline,
Use clean, fresh lead-free gasoline, including
oxygenated or reformulated gasoline, with an octane
rating of 85 or higher. To ensure freshness, purchase
only the quantity of gasoline that can be used in 30
days. Use of lead-free gasoline results in fewer
combustion chamber deposits and longer spark plug
life. Use of premium grade fuel is not necessary or
recommended.
IMPORTANT: NEVER USE METHANOL,
GASOLINE CONTAINING METHANOL,
GASOHOL CONTAINING MORE THAN
10% ETHANOL, PREMIUM GASOLINE,
OR WHITE GAS BECAUSE ENGINE
FUEL SYSTEM DAMAGE COULD
RESULT.
Toro also recommends that Toro
Stabilizer/Conditioner 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
STABILIZATION DURING STORAGE SUCH
AS TORO’S STABILIZER/CONDITIONER OR
A SIMILAR PRODUCT. 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. ADDITIVES
SHOULD NOT BE USED TO TRY TO
ENHANCE THE POWER OR PERFORMANCE
OF MACHINE.
1. Clean area around the fuel tank cap (Fig. 12).
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.
Operation
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 reverse,
and also controls power shifting of wheels. To select
speeds, move shift control to desired position.

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 the 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. 13)—Rotate
discharge chute control clockwise to move discharge
chute to the right and counterclockwise to move chute
to the left.

not obstructed. USE A STICK, NOT YOUR
HAND, TO REMOVE ANY
OBSTRUCTIONS.
Move speed shift control to N (neutral) and
throttle to FAST (Fig. 13).
Ensure that auger/impeller control and traction
drive control are in disengaged position.
Open fuel shut-off valve below fuel tank
(Fig. 15).
Move choke to ON choke position (Fig. 14).
Rotate ignition key to ON (Fig. 13).
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 engine and failure to start.
Grasp recoil starter handle (Fig. 17) 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 1f
temperature is -10% For below,
additional priming may be required.
After each additional prime, try to start
the engine before priming again.
After engine starts, immediately move choke
(Fig. 14) 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
1.
Engage auger to clear any remaining snow from
inside the housing.
Run engine for a few minutes to help dry off any
moisture which may have accumulated on
engine.
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.
Stopping
1.
Release traction and auger/impeller drive
controls (Fig. 13).
Move throttle to slow and rotate ignition key to
OFF.
Wait for all moving parts to stop before leaving
the operator’s position (behind the handles).
Power Shift Operation
Wheels will shift forward (or rearward) with every
other 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.
To move wheels to front or rear position, move
shift control fully forward to Power Shift
position and hold (Fig. 20).
Fully engage traction drive lever to move wheels
into alternate position (Figs. 20 & 21).
When power shifting it may be —
necessary to slightly raise handle to
assist wheel movement.
Note:
Note: — To shift wheels manually if engine is
not running, follow steps 1 and 2 and
then lift up on handles to unlock
“wheels.
Tf wheels do not move in desired
direction when power shifting, repeat
procedure.
Note:
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. 22), snowthrower
free wheels. By contrast, when both pins are installed
thru holes in wheel hub and inner hole of axle
(Fig. 22), snowthrower propels itself.
Operating Tips
1.
11.
When snowthrower is not being used, close fuel
shut-off valve and remove key from the switch.
Remove snow as soon as possible after it falls.
This produces best snow removal results.
When in the rear Power Shift position, push
down on handles to increase traction if =
necessary. |
Discharge snow downwind whenever possible,
and overlap each swath to ensure complete snow
removal. If wheels slip, shift into a lower gear to
reduce forward speed. |
In some snow and cold weather conditions, some
controls and moving 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 OPERATE
THE CONTROLS WHEN FROZEN. Free all
controls and moving parts before operating.
Adjust skids to match the type of surface being
cleaned. Refer to Adjusting Skids, page 14.
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.
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.
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.
. Always use full throttle (maximum engine
speed) when throwing snow.
In wet or slushy conditions, clogging of the
discharge chute will be reduced by maintaining
maximum engine speed and by not overloading
the engine.
13
ÁN DANGER
POTENTIAL HAZARD
e When snowthrower is in operation,
impeller and auger can be rotating.
WHAT CAN HAPPEN
e ROTATING IMPELLER OR AUGER
CAN CUT OFF OR INJURE FINGERS
OR HANDS.
HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD
e Stay behind the handles and away from
discharge opening while operating the
snowthrower.
e Keep face, hands, feet and any other part of
your body or clothing away from
concealed, moving or rotating parts.
e Before adjusting, cleaning, repairing and
inspecting the snowthrower, and before
unclogging the discharge chute, SHUT
ENGINE OFF AND WAIT FOR ALL
MOVING PARTS TO STOP.
e Also, pull wire off spark plug and keep
wire away from the plug to prevent
accidental starting. |

obstructions from discharge chute.
Adjusting Scraper (Fig. 8)
Adjust the scraper to compensate for wear and to
ensure that the auger does not contact the pavement.
1. Pull wire off spark plug and make sure wire does
not contact plug accidentally.
2. Check the tire pressure in both tires. Make sure
that they are both inflated equally between 7 and
15 psi.
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.
14
Support the auger blades so that the auger is 1/8
- 1/4 inch off the ground.
Move the scraper so that it contacts the flat
surface 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 fasteners can be tightened
without affecting adjustment.
Secure the scraper using carriage bolts and nylon
locknuts.
Adjust the skids; refer to Adjusting Skids,
page 14.
Adjusting Skids (Fig. 9)
For Concrete or Asphalt Surfaces

position.
Support the scraper to be 1/8 inch above a level
surface if the snowthrower is to be used on
smooth pavement.
Note: The scraper should be higher than 3/16
inch above the pavement if the
pavement surfaces are cracked, rough
or uneven.
Move the skids down to sit flat on the ground
and tighten the (4) flange bolts securing both
skids to the auger side plates.
For Gravel Surfaces
For gravel or crushed rock surfaces, adjust the skids
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.

between center and side electrodes of the spark plug
increases gradually during normal engine operation,
install a new plug after every 25 hours of engine
operation.
1.
Clean area around spark plug so foreign matter
cannot fall into cylinder when plug is removed.
Pull wire off spark plug (Fig. 33) 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.
19
Set air gap between electrodes of new spark plug
at 0.030” (0.76 mm) (Fig. 34). Next, install
