To assure maximum safety, best performance, and to gain knowledge of the product, it is essential
that you or any other operator of the trimmer read and understand the contents of this manual be-
fore 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 in-
struction because it has to do with safety. FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH INSTRUCTION MAY RESULT
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS FOR FUTURE REFERENCE
1. Read and understand the contents of this man-
ual before operating the trimmer. Become familiar
with all controls and know how to stop it quickly.
2. Keep everyone, especially children and pets,
away from area of operation.
3. Never allow children to operate trimmer. It is not
a toy. Never allow adults to operate unit without first
reading Operators Manual.
4. Always wear safety goggles or other suitable eye
protection when trimmer is used for trimming or dec-
orative edging.
5. Avoid Dangerous Environment—Never operate
the trimmer in wet or damp conditions.
6. Never use trimmer in the rain.
7. Inspect area thoroughly where trimmer will be
used. Pick up any debris or objects that could be
entangled in trimmer or picked up by trimmer and

particularly small children and pets.
8. Dress properly—Do not wear loose clothing or
jewelry which can be caught in moving parts. Always
wear substantial footwear and long pants.
9. Use the right appliance—Do not use the appli-
ance for any job except that for which it was in-
tended such as cutting grass and small weeds.
10. WARNING—To reduce the risk of electric shock,
use only an extension cord suitable for outdoor use.
Replace damaged extension cord immediately.
11. Extension cord—To prevent disconnection of the
trimmer from the extension cord during operation,
properly connect extension cord prior to operating.
12. Avoid unintentional starting. Be sure switch is off
when plugging in. Do not carry plugged —in trimmer
with finger on switch.
13. Do not abuse extension cord. Never yank cord
to disconnect from receptacle. Keep cord away from
heat, oil, and sharp edges. Replace damaged exten-
sion cords immediately.
14. Do not force the trimmer. It operates better and
safer at the rate for which it was designed.
15. 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.
16. Stop the motor and unplug the extension cord
whenever you leave the trimmer, before cleaning the
housing, and when making any repairs or inspec-
tions.
17. When not in use, store your trimmer in a dry
place; high or locked up out of the reach of children.
18. Keep all fasteners tight to insure the trimmer is in

4) SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
23. When servicing use only identical replacement
parts. Replace or repair damaged extension cords.
24. Don’t Overreach—Keep proper footing and bal-
ance at all times when operating the trimmer.
25. Maintain Appliance With Care—Keep cutting
head and motor housing clean for best performance
and to reduce the risk of injury. Follow General Main-
tenance Instructions on page 11.
26. CAUTION—Cutting knife on grass shield is
sharp and care should be taken when cleaning and
handling.
27. EXTENSION CORD REQUIREMENTS—Use an
extension cord suitable for outdoor use and one that
complies with the requirements specified in the Inter-
national Electric Code. Make sure your cord is in
good condition; if damaged, replace. Use a cord that
is large enough to carry the current the trimmer will
draw. Figure 1 shows the correct size cord to use for
trimmers of 6 amps or less.
Note: When in doubt about what size extension cord
to use, choose the next heavier gauge. The smaller
the gauge number, the heavier the cord. An under-
sized cord causes a drop in line voltage which re-
sults in a loss of power and overheating.
See Figures 11 & 12 for proper cord connection.
EXTENSION CORD CHART
If length of extension cord
is less than or equal to: 100 ft. 150 ft
Assure wire size gauge
(A.W.G.) in cord is: 16 14

CUTTING LINE
Note: The cutting line for your trimmer is a special
monofilament line. Your trimmer comes complete
with a supply of this line already wound onto the
Spool.
1. To avoid line tangle during shipment, the tip of
the monofilament line has been taped to the cutter
head. The tape must be removed before operation
(Fig. 10).
& CAUTION
e Cutting knife on grass shield is sharp.
e Contact with cutting knife could cause
personal injury. |
e Be careful when handling shield. Avoid
contact with knife blade.

SECURING EXTENSION CORD
Note: The proper extension cord is a requirement for
safe and efficient use of your Toro trimmer. Use only
a UL listed extension cord recommended for outdoor
use. Refer to Extension Cord Chart on page 2.
1. Your trimmer has a polarized plug. This means
one prong in the handle socket is larger than the
other (Fig. 11). When inserting the end of a suitable
extension cord into the handle socket, be sure to
insert the enlarged prong into the wide slot in the
extension cord end.

ÁN WARNING
e Never use an electrical cord that is dam-
aged.
e A damaged electrical cord could cause a
shock or fire.
eo Thoroughly inspect electrical cord before
using trimmer. If cord is damaged, do not
operate trimmer. Replace or repair dam-
aged cord immediately. Contact your
TORO service dealer for assistance.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
ÁN WARNING
e Objects can be thrown by the trimmer while
It is in operation.
e Thrown objects could cause injury to the op-
erator or bystanders.
e Always wear safety goggles or other suit-
able eye protection, long pants and shoes
while operating trimmer.
e Keep people and pets away from trimming
area.
Your trimmer will cut grass and small weeds in diffi-
cult and hard to reach places. However, you will
most likely experience some line breakage during
your first few uses. As you learn the trimming tech-
niques, you will be able to cut areas around trees,
shrubs, foundation walls, fences, sidewalks, patios,
etc., with minimal line wear or line breakage.
1. Inspect area to be trimmed for any wire, cord, or
string-like matter which could become entangled in
the rotating line. Also pick up any objects or debris
that could be thrown by the trimmer.
2. Lay out the extension cord so that it won't be in
your way and to prevent kinking or tangling.
3. Trim only when grass and weeds are dry.
4. Slowly move unit in 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. 13 8 14).

1106
Figure 14
5. Grass in excess of eight inches tall or small
weeds should be cut by working from the top to the
bottom in small increments to avoid premature line
wear.
6. DO NOT FORCE THE UNIT. Allow the very tip of
the nylon line to do the cutting (especially along
walls) (Fig. 15). Cutting with more than the tip will
reduce cutting efficiency and overload the motor.
1107
Figure 15
The tip of the cutting line will wear during use and
cause a reduction in the cutting swath. If the line is
not advanced occasionally, it will wear down to the
metal eyelet. When the trimmer is stopped the line
will tend to relax and may retract into the cutter
head. Should this occur, remove spool, refeed the
line through metal eyelet, and reassemble spool to
trimmer.
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
7. The life of your cutting line is dependent upon
following the preceding trimming techniques, as well
as what is being cut, and where the cutting is being
done. For example, line wears 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 entanglement 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 indi-
cated in Lengthening Cutting Line procedure.
8. Never drag the trimmer spool on the ground
while trimming (Fig. 16). This causes motor over-
load and spool wear.
1108
1109
Figure 17
1. Support handle rotated 180°

9. After each use, feed out some line to prevent line
from retracting into cutting head.
10. Trimmer may be used as a decorative edger by
rotating support handle 180° (Fig. 17).
ÁN WARNING
When trimmer is used for decorative edging,
objects may be thrown in operator's or by-
stander's direction.
Thrown objects could cause injury to the op-
erator or bystanders.
Always wear safety goggles or other suit-
able eye protection, long pants and shoes
while operating trimmer.
Keep people and pets away from trimming
area.
EN-7
LENGTHENING CUTTING LINE
1. To lengthen line, firmly tap spool on the ground
while the motor continues 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. 18).
Remember to keep the trimmer ‘on’ while lengthen-
ing the line. Just tap the trimmer on the ground; do
not hold it on the ground. After the line feeds out,
Wait until you hear the line being cut to the proper
length before continuing to trim.
Note: To help prevent line tangle, tap only once to
lengthen line. If additional line is required, wait a few
seconds before retapping trimmer head. Do not al-
low line to wear too short. Keep line length at full cut-
ting diameter as much as possible.
2. Lengthen line only when line has been short-
ened by wear. Unnecessary lengthening will waste
line. |
Note: The spool may wear during normal use of the
line advance feature and may require occasional re-
placement. Replacement spools are available
through your TORO retailer. See page 11 for acces-
sories. |

Toro is specially formulated for use on your trimmer.
Other line may not provide the same high quality
performance.
A) CAUTION
e Use of improper monofilament line could
result in personal injury.
e Do not use any type of wire or other
string-like substance.
e Use only TORO .065” dia. nylon monofila-
ment cutting line, 30 feet maximum.
dA WARNING
e When trimmer is in operation, the cutting
head is rotating. |
e Contact with rotating cutting head could
cause personal injury. |
e Always be sure cutting head has com-
pletely stopped rotating and trimmer is
unplugged before inverting trimmer.
e Never activate trimmer when it is in an
inverted position.
1. Disconnect trimmer from power source.
À CAUTION
e Cutting knife on grass shield is sharp.
e Contact with cutting knife could cause
personal injury.
e Be careful when removing spool. Avoid
contact with knife blade.
2. To remove empty spool, invert trimmer, place
“hand over spool and press in tabs on each side of
cap (Fig. 19).
1111
3. Ifthere is any line on spool, hold free end of line
with one hand to prevent spool from unraveling and
with other hand grasp spool and lift off spool and
cap together (Fig. 20).
