11. Avoid unintentional starting — do
not carry plugged-in Trimmer with
finger on switch.
To assure optimum performance, and to gain knowledge of the Trimmer, it
is essential that you or any other operator of the Trimmer read and under-
stand the contents of this manual before operating Trimmer. Pay particular
attention to the instructions highlighted by the black safety symbol. Failure
to comply with the safety instructions may result in personal injury.
12. Don't abuse cord — never yank
cord to disconnect from receptacle.
Keep cord away from heat, oil and
sharp edges. Replace damaged cords.
13. Don't force the Trimmer — it will
do the job better and safer at the rate
for which it was designed.
14. Always be sure of your footing;
keep a firm hold on the handle and
walk, never run.
15. Stop the motor and unplug the
supply cord whenever you leave the
Trimmer, before cleaning the housing
and when making any repairs or
inspections.
16. When not in use, store your Trim-

Installing Grass Shield
1. Place grass shield over trimmer head
assembly.
2. Tilt grass shield so that back side of
shield is under locking shelf.
Figure 9
3. Push front side of grass shield down
and align screw holes. Tighten withscrew.
CAUTION: Grass shield should be kept
on Trimmer to prevent foreign material
or debris from being thrown into oper-
ator zone.
NOTE: Cutting knife is sharp and care
should be taken when handling shield.
Before Operating
Cutting Line
NOTE: The cutting line for your Trim-
mer is a special monofilament line. Your
Trimmer comes complete with a 50 foot
supply of this line already wound onto
the spool,
1. (Figure 10) To avoid line tangle
during shipment, the tip of the morio-
Figure 10
filament line has been taped to the
head assembly. The tape must be remov-
ed before operation.
2. After each use, either retaping or
looping the line through the eyelet (see
figure 11) will prevent unraveling.
Figure 11
Securing Pigtail Power Cord
NOTE: The proper extension cord is a
requirement for safe and efficient use of
your Toro 1100 Trimmer. Use only a
U.L. - C.5.A. listed extension cord
recommended for outdoor use with a
Figure 12
maximum length of 100 feet (minimum
16 gauge).
1. Secure the pigtail power cord and a
suitable extension cord as shown in
figure 12.
Operating Instructions
A CAUTION: Always wear safety
glasses or other suitable eye protection
and long pants while operating Trimmer,
1. Inspect area to be trimmed for any
wire, cord or string-like matter which
could become entangled in the rotating
line.
2. Your Trimmer will cut grass and
small weeds in difficult and hard to reach
places. However, since this tool provides
totally new method of cutting, you
ill most likely experience some line
preakage 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.
3. (Fig. 13) DO NOT FORCE THE
UNIT. Allow the very tip of the nylon
line to do the cutting (especially along
walls). Cutting with more than the tip
will reduce cutting efficiency and over-
load the motor.
Figure 13

A
4. Whenever possible cut to your
left. When cutting to the left, the
nit's cutting efficiency is somewhat
petter since the line is contacting the
grass as soon as it leaves the guard, and
the clippings are moving away from the
operator.
5. 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.

6. 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.
7. Trim only when grass and weeds are
dry.
8. The life of your cutting line is
dependent upon following the preceding
trimming techniques, as well as what is
Operating Instructions (Continued)
being cut, and where the cutting is
being done, EXAMPLE: Line will wear
faster when 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.
10. Never drag the Trimmer spool cap
on the ground while trimming. This
causes motor overload and spool cap
wear.
11. Your Toro Trimmer is also an
edger. Edging is usually required to
keep grass from growing over side-
walks, driveways and curbs. The old
way to edge was to dig a trench along
the border. A quick way to edge is
with your Toro Trimmer. Let your
grass grow over the trench and use the
Trimmer to remove the grass off the
driveway by trimming along the top
of the pavement.
Figure 16
Lengthening Cutting Line
Your Trimmer is equipped with an automatic line feeding device so the line can be
lengthened WITHOUT STOPPING THE MOTOR. Simply tap the Trimmer once on
the ground WHILE THE MOTOR 15
lengthen and be cut to the proper length.
1. (Fig. 17) 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.

‘gure 17
RUNNING and line will automatically
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 line has fed
out, wait until you hear the line being
cut to the proper length before con-
tinuing 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 50 feet of cutting
line are available through your Trimmer
retailer or directly from The Toro
Company Outdoor Appliance Division.
Replacing Cutting Line
Figure 18
1. To replace cutting line when your
factory furnished supply runs out, you
may purchase replacement line to re-
wind the empty spool or prewound
replacement spools from your Toro
Retailer.
CAUTION: Always unplug Trimmer
from power source before inverting it.
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.
Replacing Cutting Line (Continued)
3. (Fig. 19) To rewind empty spool,
follow the steps below:
A. Hook one end of line into groove on
spool allowing no more than 1/8
Figure 19
Figure 20
Figure 21
inch of line to protrude. Wind line
in direction of arrows on spool in
level rows between spool flanges
as shown.
B. Do not wind more than 50 feet of
line onto spool. Do not use line
over ,.065” diameter,
C. Keep line tight on spool by making
a hook in the line, and secure in
groove.
NOTE: Before reassembly, be :
to thoroughly 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
when putting 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 groove in spool. Un-
wind no more than three inches
from spool.
4, (Fig. 21) If the line should tangle or
break at eyelet, refeed cutting line
through eyelet by pushing spool in as
far as it will go and threading line back
through eyelet. Or you may remove
spool completely, refeed the line through
the eyelet and reassemble spool to
Trimmer.
General Maintenance
1. Always be sure your Toro Trimmer
is unplugged before attempting any

holes in lower tube.
4, Wipe or scrape clean the spool
area anytime there is an accumulat’
of dirt or cuttings.
5. Check and tighten all fasteners.
