do the job better and safer at the rate
for which it was designed.
14. Use only in daylight or with good
artificial light. Always be sure of your
footing; keep a firm hold on the handle
and walk, never run.

Before Operating
Cutting Line
NOTE: The cutting line for your Trim-
mer is a special monofilament line. Your
Trimmer comes complete with a 30 foot
supply of this line already wound onto
the spool.
1. To avoid line tangle during ship-
ment the tip of the monofilament line
has been taped to the head assembly.
The tape must be removed before
operation (Fig. 4).
2. After each use, either retape or
loop the line through the eyelet (see
figure 5) to prevent unraveling

Securing Pigtail Power Cord
NOTE: The proper extension cord
Is a requirement for safe and efficient
use of your Toro Trimmer. Use only
a UL-C.S.A. listed extension cord re-
commended for outdoor use with a
maximum length of 100 feet (minimum
16 gauge).
1. Secure the pigtail power cord and a
suitable extension cord as shown in
figure 6.

1. Inspect area to be trimmed for any
wire, cord or string like matter which
could become entangled in the rotating
2. Trim only when grass and weeds
are dry.
3. Your Trimmer will cut grass and
small weeds in difficult and hard to reach
places. However, since this tool provides
a totally new method of cutting, you
will most likely experience some line
breakage during your first few uses.
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 fatigue or line breakage.
Allow the very tip of the nylon line to
do the cutting (especially along walls).
Cutting with more than the tip will re-
duce cutting efficiency and overload the
motor (Fig. 7).
The tip of the cutting line will wear
during use and cause a reduction in
the 10" cutting swath. If the line is not
advanced occasionally, it will wear down
to the drum eyelet. When the trimmer is
stopped the line will tend to relax and
may retract into the drum. Should this
occur, be sure to replace the cutting line
in the proper position before restarting
the Trimmer (page 6, #4) or the line
may tangle around the drum.
5. Whenever possible cut to your
left. When cutting to the left, the unit's
cutting efficiency is somewhat better
since the line Is contacting the grass as
soon as it leaves the guard, and the clip-
pings are moving away from the operator.
Figure 8
6. Slowly move unit into and out of
area being cut, maintaining unit at
desired cutting height. This can be
either a forward-backward or side-to-
side motion as indicated (Fig. 8 & 9).

Operating Instructions (cont.)
7. Grass in excess of 8 inches tall or
small weeds should be cut by working
from the top to the bottom in small in-
crements to avoid premature line wear,
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.
For example, line will wear faster when
trimming against a foundation wall as
opposed 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. As cutting line wears, for best
performance, lengthen as indicated in
Lengthening Cutting Line procedure.
9. Never drag the Trimmer spool cap
on the ground while trimming (Fig. 10).
This causes motor over load and spool
cap wear.
10. Lay out the extension cord so that
it won't be in your way and to prevent
kinking or tangling.
Lengthening Cutting Line
1. To lengthen line, firmly tap spool
on the ground while the motor contin-
ues 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 (Fig. 10).
Remember to keep the Trimmer ‘on’
while lengthening the line. Just tap the
Figure 10
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.
NOTE: To prevent line tangle, never tap
more than once at a time.
2. Lengthen line only when line has
been shortened by wear. Unnecessary
lengthening will waste line.
NOTE: The spool cap may wear during
normal use of the line advance feature
and may require occasional replacement.
Spools prewound with 30 feet of cutting
line are available through your TORO

Replacing Cutting Line
1. Replacement line or prewound re-
placement spools can be purchased from
your local TORO retailer. The cutting
line used by TORO is specially formu-
lated for use on your trimmer. Other
line may not provide the same high
quality performance.

2. To remove empty spool, insert
widest possible blade screw driver
snugly into one of the two window slots.
With screw driver pressed firmly into
window slot twist screw driver 1/4 turn.
Spool will snap off (Fig. 11).
3. To rewind empty spool, follow
the steps below:
A. Hook one end of line into groove on
spool allowing no more than 1/8
inch of line to protrude. Wind line
in direction of arrows on spool in
level rows between spool flanges
(Fig. 12).
B. Do not wind more than 30 feet of
line onto spool. Do not use line
over .050” diameter.
C. Keep line tight on spool by making
a hook in the line and secure in
groove (Fig. 12).
NOTE: Before reassembly, be sure
to thorougly clean out drum area
and visually inspect for any dam-
aged or worn parts.
D. The spool and the core are keyed.
Be sure they are properly aligned

end of line through eyelet, place
spool on keyed core and push in
place until you hear it click. Pull
line free from groove in spool.
Unwind no more than three inches
from spool (Fig. 13).
4, If line should tangle or break at
eyelet, refeed cutting line through eye-
let by pushing spool in as far as it will
go and threading line back through
eyelet. Or you may remove spool com-
pletely, refeed the line through the
eyelet and reassemble spool to Trimmer
(Fig. 14).
General Maintenance
1. ÁN Always be sure your Trimmer is
unplugged and stopped before attempt-
ing any maintenance.
2. To keep the exterior clean, just
wipe it off with a damp cloth — never
hose it down.
3. Wipe or scrape clean the drum and
spool area any time there is an accumula-
tion of dirt or cuttings.
4. Check and tighten all fasteners. If
any part is damaged, repair or replace it.
5. Air exhaust vent is located on under-
side of shield. Scrape vent clean regularly.
6. Wipe debris away from air intake
holes in motor housing.
IMPORTANT: Keeping intake and ex-
haust vents free of grass and debris,
will help prevent motor overheating
and possible failure.
