The Toro Trimmer will cut grass and small weeds in difficult and hard- to-reach places. However, since this tool provides a totally new method of cut- ting, you will most likely experience some line breakages during your first few usages. As you learn the trimming techniques, you will be able to cut areas around trees, shrubs, foundation walls, along fences, sidewalks, patios, etc., with minimal line fatique or line break- age. inspect area to be trimmed for any wire, cord, or string-like matter which could become entangled in the rotating line. 2, Angle unit slightly with reference to area being cut. 3. Do not force the unit — Allow the very trip of the nylon line to do the cutting. (ESPECIALLY ALONG WALLS). 4, Whenever possible cut to your left. When cutting to the left, the unit's cut- ting efficiency is somewhat better since the line is contacting the grass as soon as It leaves the guard, and the clippings are moving away from the operator, TT re N 5. Slowly move unit into and out of area being cut, maintaining unit at de- sired height. This can be either a for- ward-backward or side-to-side motion as indicated. — лы VANOVA 6. Grass in excess of 8 inches tall 6. small weeds should be cut by working from the top to the bottom in small increments to avoid premature line wear, /. As cutting line wears, for best per- formance, lengthen as indicated in Line Lengthening procedure. Trim only when grass and weeds are dry, 8. The life of your cutting line is de- pendent upon following the above trim- ming techniques, as well as what is being cut, and where the cutting is being done. EXAMPLE: Line will wear faster Operating Instructions (cont.) ‚en run against a foundation wall as compared to trimming around a tree. Some line breakage will occur from moving unit too fast, from entangle- ment with foreign matter, from normal line fatigue, and from attempting to cut thick, stalky weeds in excess of unit's capability. 9. Lay out the extension cord so that it won't be in your way and to prevent kinking or tangling. Lengthening Cutting Line Toro Trimmers are equipped with an automatic line feeding device so the line can be lengthened WITHOUT STOPPING THE MOTOR. With your Toro Trimmer you need not stop and unplug the Trimmer, measure the proper length of line, and cut it off. Simply tap the Trimmer on the ground WHILE THE MOTOR IS RUNNING and line will automatically lengthen and be cut to the proper length. NOTE: The spool cap may wear during normal use of the line advance feature and may require occasional replace- ment. Spools prewound with 50 feet of cutting line are available through your Toro Trimmer retailer. 1. To lengthen line, firmly tap spool on the ground while the motor con- tinues to run. The line will be fed from the spool and cut off to the proper length by the cutting knife attached to the shield. Remember to keep the Trimmer ‘on’ while lengthening the line. Just tap the Trimmer on the ground; do not hold it on the ground. After the tap and the line has fed out, wait until you hear the line being cut to the proper length be- fore continuing to trim. 2. Lengthen line only when necessary; over lengthening will waste line. Replacing Cutting Line 1. To replace cutting line when yc factory furnished supply runs out, you may purchase replacement line to re- wind the empty spool or prewound re- placement spools from your Toro Retailer. CAUTION: Always unplug Trimmer from power source before inverting it. 2. To remove empty spool, insert med- ium blade screw driver in one of two win- dow slots on spool hub and twist screw driver 1/4 turn. Spool will snap off. Keep line tight on spool by making a hook in the line and secure in notch. NOTE: Before reassembly, be sure to thoroughly clean out drum area and visually inspect for any damaged or worn parts. The spool and the core are keyed. Be sure they are properly aligned when put- ting spool back on. Thread end of line through eyelet, place spool on keyed core and push in place until you hear it click. Pull line free from notch in spool. Unwind no more than three inches from spool. 4. If line should break at eyelet, refeed cutting line through eyelet by pushing spool in as far as it will go 5 ° thread line back through eyelet, Ory may remove the spool completely, refeed the cutting line through eyelet and reassemble spool to Trimmer fol- lowing instructions above.
