1. READ OPERATORS MANUAL
CAREFULLY. Become fully familiar
with the chain saw before attempting to
operate it.
2. KEEP WORK AREA CLEAN. Clut-
tered areas and benches invite accidents.
3. AVOID DANGEROUS ENVIRON-
MENT. Don’t expose saw to rain, or use
saw in damp or wet locations. Keep
work area well lit. NEVER OPERATE
THE SAW WHILE IN CONTACT WITH
WATER.
4. WEAR PROPER APPAREL. Loose
clothing or jewelry may get caught in
moving parts. Wear a hard hat during
felling of trees.
5. WEAR SAFETY GLASSES. Use
safety glasses with most tools. Also use
a face or dust mask if cutting operation
is dusty.
6. KEEP CHILDREN AWAY. All visi-
tors should be kept a safe distance from
work area.
7. NEVER OPERATE SAW WHEN
YOU ARE FATIGUED.
8. USE PROPER EXTENSION CORD
OUTDOORS. When tool is used out-
doors, use only extension cords suitable
for use outdoors and so marked. (Sug-
gested cord sizes listed on page 5.
9. MAINTAIN SAW WITH CARE.
Never operate a chain saw that is unclean,
SNA ERES
improperly adjusted, or is not complete-
ly and securely assembled. Keep the saw
handles dry, clean and free of oil. Use
only identical replacement parts. Follow
instructions for lubricating and changing
accessories.
10. REMOVE ADJUSTING TOOLS.
Form habit of checking to see that
adjusting tools are removed from too!
before turning it on.
11. DISCONNECT SAW WHEN NOT
IN USE. Disconnect before servicing
and when changing accessories such as
guide bar or saw chain.
12. KEEP GUARDS IN PLACE AND
IN WORKING ORDER.
13. USE CORRECT SAW. Don't force
small saw or attachment to do the job
of a heavy-duty saw.
14. Аве AWARE OF KICKBACK.
When the moving chain at the nose of the
guide bar touches an object, the chain
and guide bar often are thrown upward
with speed and force, (see figure 12).
Your TORO chain saw's special non-
symmetrical guide bar reduces this
action, but care must be taken regard-
less.
15. SECURE WORK. Use clamps or
chocks to secure work.
A Safety Instructions (cont.)
16. CONNECT CHAIN SAW TO COR-
RECT VOLTAGE (120V).
17. AVOID ACCIDENTAL START-
ING. Do not place finger on switch when
plugging in or until ready for cutting.
Always carry the chain saw from one lo-
cation to another with the power cord
disconnected and finger off of switch.
The guide bar and saw chain should be
to the rear, and away from your body
(see figure 12).
18. BETWEEN CUTS set the saw down
and pick it back up by the front handle
to avoid contacting switch and starting
saw unintentionally.
19. GRIP SAW PROPERLY. Always
hold the chain saw firmly with both
hands when the saw is running. Use a
firm grip with thumbs and all fingers en-
circling the chain saw handles.
20. DON'T OVERREACH. Keep pro-
per footing and balance at all times.
21. KEEP HANDS AWAY FROM CUT-
TING AREA. Be sure all parts of your
body or clothing are away from the cut-
ting area before starting the saw and
during its operation.
22. DON'T ABUSE CORD. Never carry
tool by cord or yank it to disconnect
from receptacle. Keep cord away from
heat, oil, sharp edges and away from
operator.
23. CLEAR SAW CHAIN BEFORE
STARTING. Before you start the saw,
make sure the saw chain is not contact-
ing operator.
24. DON'T FORCE SAW. It will do the
job better and safer at the rate for which
it was designed.
25. STORE IDLE SAW. When not in
use, saw should be stored in dry, high,
or locked-up place — out of reach of
children.
26. BE ALERT WHEN CUTTING
LIMBS. When cutting a limb that is un-
der tension be alert for spring back so
that you will not be struck when the ten-
sion in the wood fibers is released.
27. USE CAUTION WHEN CUTTING
BRUSH AND SAPLINGS. Slender brush
and saplings may catch the saw chain and
be whipped toward you or pull you off
balance.
28. BE CAREFUL WHEN CUTTING
TREES. Do not operate a chain saw in a
tree unless specifically trained to do so.
When felling trees never start cutting un-
til you have a clear work area, secure
footing, and a planned retreat path.
29. CUTTING STANDING TREES RE-
QUIRES EXPERTISE AND POSES
HAZARDS. Your Toro Chain Saw should
not be used to fell large trees with dia-
meters greater than the length of your
quide bar.
Assembly Instructions
Install Guide Bar and Saw Chain
1. Remove the guide bar hexagon
nut and spring washer. Then remove
sprocket cover (Fig. 1).
2. Loosen the guide bar adjusting
block by turning the tension adjusting
screw counter clockwise to the screw
end (Fig. 2).
3. Insert the saw chain into the groove
of the guide bar with the cutting edge
facing forward toward the nose of the
guide bar (see inset). Note that the
through hole near the guide bar slot
must be positioned below the slot as
indicated (Fig. 3).
4. Loop the open end of the saw chain
around the sprocket and position the
guide bar slot over the guide bar bolt
and guide bar pin so that the projected
portion of the adjusting block fits into
the through hole (Fig. 4).
A note: GUIDE BAR IS NOT
REVERSIBLE.
5. Replace the sprocket cover, spring
washer and guide bar hexagon nut.
Secure finger tight.
Assembly Instructions (cont.)
Adjust Saw Chain Tension
A CAUTION: Make sure chain saw is
disconnected from power source before
adjusting chain tension. Use gloves or
rag to protect hands.
IMPORTANT: Do not operate chain
saw if chain is not properly adjusted.
A loose chain will shorten sprocket and
guide bar life and may cause chain
breakage. An over-tightened chain will
overheat the quide bar and chain, caus-
ing rapid wear and may cause motor
burnout.
1. Loosen the guide bar hexagon nut
by turning counter clockwise 1/2 turn.
Then tension the chain by turning the
tension adjustment screw clockwise
(Fig. b).
2. The tension is correct when the
chain fits tightly but can be moved
easily around the guide bar by hand.
An easy test for correct tension is to
lift one chain cutter away from the
middle of the guide bar (Fig. 6). There
should be approximately 1/8” clearance
between the bottom of the side links
and the guide bar (Fig. 7). The bottom
of the chain drive link should never be
loose enough to drop or be pulled beyond
the lip of the bar slot.
3. Lift up the nose of the guide bar,
tighten the guide bar hexagon nut and
retest the chain tension. If tension has
changed, repeat entire procedure.
NOTE: Check chain tension after the
first few cuts. New chains usually stretch
and will require readjustment.
Before Operating
Fill Oil Reservoir
A caution: Make sure chain saw is
disconnected from power source before
performing maintenance operations.
1. (Fig. 8).
2. Using a pouring spout or funnel,
fill the oil reservoir. When temperature
is below 30° Fahrenheit (1° C) use SAE
#10 motor oil. For temperatures above
30°F (1°C) use SAE #30 motor oil.
3. Replace and tighten fill cap im-
mediately after filling. Failure to tighten
the cap will cause excessive oil leakage.
Due to the vacuum type oiling system
there may be a constant minimal
leakage.
IMPORTANT: Cutting without proper
oiling will damage the saw's chain and
bar.
Extension Cords
1. The proper extension cord is a must
for safe and efficient use of your chain
saw. Your extension cord should be
suitable for outdoor use and comply
with the requirements specified in the
National Electric Code. Refer to the
following table for proper extension cord
usage. Examine the extension cord
periodically and replace immediately if
damaged.
Extension Cord
Length in Feet 0-50
50-100 | 100-150
Required wire size
(A.W.G.) incord | 16 | 14 12
2. Connect extension cord as shown in
figure 9.
Operating Instructions
AA CAUTION: Operating a chain saw
may be hazardous. Read and follow
operating instructions carefully to help
avoid possible personal injury.
1. Operate the chain saw with two
hands. Use a firm grip with your fingers
encircling both chain saw handles.
2. Stand to the left of the saw (Fig. 10)
with your left hand on the front handle;
hold the rear handle with your right
hand so you can operate the switch
Operating Instructions (cont.)
Never stand directly behind the chain
saw (Fig. 12).
3. Stand securely with your weight
evenly distributed on both feet.
4, Don’t
balanced.
overreach, Keep vyourself
5. Always cut with the spike bar set
firmly against the wood. Start saw chain
before cutting into wood (Fig. 11).
6. When cutting, keep the nose of the
guide bar from contacting logs, branches,
the ground or any other obstruction.
This can cause KICKBACK, which is a
quick and dangerous upward movement
of the guide bar and saw chain (Fig.12)!
7. IMPORTANT: Motor overload and
burnout can be caused by:
A. Starting saw while chain is pinched
in a cut.
B. Forcing the saw into a cut so hard
that chain speed is drastically
slowed.
C. Working with a saw chain that is dull
or improperly sharpened or a chain
that is too tight.
D. Using an unsuitable extension cord.
E. Using a saw with dirty, dusty, clog-
ged air passages. Good air circulation
is necessary to properly cool the
motor.
8. By pushing the oiling button with
moderate pressure, oil will feed into the
guide bar slot and onto the saw chain
(Fig. 13). To keep the saw chain prop-
erly lubricated, push the oiling button
at least once before each cut and reqular-
ly during extended cuts. Check the oil
level in the reservoir frequently.
dA IMPORTANT: Cutting without
proper oiling will damage the saw's
chain and bar.
9. Before carrying the saw from one
location to another disconnect the
extension cord. Carry the saw with the
guide bar and saw chain to the rear and
away from your body (Fig. 14).
Operating Instructions (cont.)
Felling a Tree
AN CAUTION: Cutting standing trees
requires expertise and poses hazards.
Your TORO Chain Saw should not be
used to fell large trees with diameters
greater than the length of your guide
bar.
The proper operator stance for felling a
tree is shown in Figure 15.
1. Before attempting to cut a big tree,
practice cut a few branches, limbs or
small logs to familiarize yourself with
the controls.
2. Next, the direction of the fall must
be determined. Consider the wind dir-
ection, if there are heavier limbs on any
one side of the tree and the tree's
natural tilt, if any.
3. Have a wide path cleared behind the
planned direction of fall as a safety re-
treat.
4. To fell the tree, make the first cut
1/3 of the way through tree diameter on
the side you want the tree to fall. The
second cut should be made as illustrated
to complete the notch (Fig. 16).
5. The third cut should be made from
the opposite side of the first two cuts and
two or three inches higher than the bot-
tom of the notch as shown in Figure 16.
6. Stop the third cut one or two inches
from the notch to form a “hinge” which
will keep the tree from falling in the
wrong direction or twisting as it falls.
Limbing a Tree
A CAUTION: When cutting limbs
from a standing tree, use a well secured
ladder to reach the higher areas. After
you have a firm position on the ladder,
hoist the chain saw with a rope. Do not
climb on limbs or branches with the
chain saw and don’t overreach. Cut with
both hands on the saw.
1. Make the first cut from the under-
side of the limb about 1/2 foot from the
trunk. Cut one third of the way through
the limb (Fig. 17).
Operating Instructions (cont.)
2. Make the second cut two to four
inches farther out on the limb and from
above. Cut until the limb falls.
3. Cut one third the diameter of the
limb stub from underneath as close to
the trunk as possible.
4. Make the final cut from above so
that it meets the previous cut as close as
possible to the trunk.
Cutting Fallen Trees (Bucking)
1. When cutting branches from a fall-
en tree or cutting a log into lengths, sup-
port the log off the ground (preferably
on a sawbuck).
2. When cutting a log supported on
one end, cut from the top. If the chain
saw should bind in the cut, never try to
free it by running the motor. Stop the
chain saw, then use a wedge to pry open
the cut and release the saw (Fig. 18).
3. When cutting a log supported on
both ends, start from the top and cut
about 1/3 of the way through the log.
The second cut should be made from
the underside to meet the first cut. This
will keep the log from pinching the saw
(Fig. 19).
Maintenance
Refilling Oil Reservoir
A CAUTION: Make sure chain saw is
disconnected from power source before
performing maintenance operations.
1. Remove the oil fill cap (Fig. 20).
2. Using a pouring spout or funnel, fill
the oil reservoir. When temperature is
below 30° Fahrenheit use SAE #10
motor oil. For temperatures above 30°
use SAE #30 motor oil.
3. Replace and tighten fill cap im-
mediately after filling. Failure to tighten
the cap will cause excessive oil leakage.
Due to the vacuum type oiling system
there may be a constant minimal leakage.
IMPORTANT: Cutting without proper
oiling will damage the saw’s chain and
bar.
Sharpening the Saw Chain
A caution: Before beginning the
sharpening procedure, make sure chain
saw power source is disconnected. Wear
gloves to protect hands.
1. The saw chain needs sharpening
when it must be forced onto the wood
or it does not produce wood chips as
large as when new.
2. Following the tensioning procedure
on page 4, adjust chain tension extra
tight so cutters are firm and remain
steady as sharpened.
3. To sharpen the cutters, you will
need a 5/32 round file and a file guide.
4. First, file all left hand cutters (from
inside out). Then file all right hand
cutters. The correct angle is 30° (Fig. 21).
5. Press File Guide so it rides on both
cutter top plate and depth gauge, with
guide marks in line with the length of
chain (Fig. 22).
Maintenance (cont.)
6. Move to other side of chain and file
all cutters opposite to complete chain
sharpening. File all cutters identically
(Fig. 23).
7. Depth gauges should be checked
every third sharpening with a depth
gauge tool. Depth gauge setting is .025",
Place the depth gauge tool as indicated
and file away portions of each depth
gauge which extend above the tool's slot
(Fig. 24).
8. Round off leading edges of depth
gauges as shown (Fig. 25).
9. IMPORTANT: saw chain
Reset
tension. See instructions on page 4.
10. Any other servicing should be per-
formed by an authorized TORO Service
Dealer.
