10. Extension cord — To prevent dis-
connection of the power supply cord
from the extension cord during oper-
ation, properly connect extension cord
with pigtail power cord.
11. Avoid unintentional starting — Do
not carry plugged-in Trimmer with
finger on switch.

spections.
16. When not in use, store your Trimmer
in adry place out of the reach of children.
17. Keep all fasteners tight to be sure
the Trimmer is in safe working condition.
18. Never operate without proper guards
or other protective safety devices in place.
19. Do not put hands or feet near or
under rotating parts. Keep clear at all
times.

Installing Grass Shield
A CAUTION: Cutting knife on grass
shield is sharp and care should be taken
when handling shield.
1. Place grass shield over motor housing
with the raised tab on shield centered
with notch in motor housing side.
2. Lock shield into position by firmly
turning 1/4 turn so raised tab on shield
locks into square notch in motor
housing back.
3. Secure shield to motor housing with
(2) self tapping screws.
4. THE GRASS SHIELD MUST
ALWAYS BE KEPT ON TRIMMER.
Mounted on the shield is a cutting knife
used to automatically cut line to proper
cutting length. The use of too long a
line can result in shortened motor life.
5. Remove tape from cutoff blade.
A AUTION: Grass shield must be
kept on Trimmer to prevent foreign
material or debris from being thrown
into operator zone.
Before Operating
Cutting Line
NOTE: The cutting line for your Trim-
mer is a special monofilament line. Your
Trimmer comes complete with a 38 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. 10).
2. After each use, either retaping or
looping the line through the eyelet (see
figure 11) will 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 listed extension cord recommend-
ed for outdoor use with a maximum
length of 100 feet (minimum 16 guage).
1. Secure the pigtail power cord and a
suitable extension cord as shown in
figure 12.

1. Inspect area to be trimmed for any
wire, cord or string like matter which
could become entangled in the rotating
line.
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 fatique or line breakage.
4. 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 re-
duce cutting efficiency and overload the
motor (Fig. 13).
The tip of the cutting line will wear
during use and cause a reduction in
Instructions
the 12" 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 7, #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.
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. 14 & 15).
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-
Lengthening
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. 16).
Remember to keep the Trimmer ‘on’
while lengthening the line. Just tap the
Trimmer on the ground; do not hold it
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. 16).
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.
Cutting Line
on the ground. After the tap and the
line has been fed out, wait until you
hear the line being cut to the proper
length before 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 38 feet of cutting
line are available through your Toro
retailer.

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.

With screw driver pressed firmly into
window slot twist screw driver 1/4 turn.
‘Spool will snap off (Fig. 17).
3. To rewind empty spool, follow the
steps below:
A. Hook one end of the 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. 18).
B. Do not wind more than a total of
38 feet of line onto spool. Do not
use line over .080".
i
C. Keep line tight on spool by making
a hook in the line and secure in
groove (Fig. 18).
NOTE: Before reassembly, be sure
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 ends of line through eyelets,
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 (Fig. 19).
4. If 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 com-
pletely, refeed the line through the eyelet
and reassemble spool to Trimmer
(Fig. 20).
General Maintenance
1. 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 accumu-
lation of dirt or cuttings.
4. Check and tighten all fasteners. If
5. Air outlet vent is located on under-
side of shield. Scrape vent clean regularly.
6. Wipe debris away frorn air intake

prevent motor overheating and possible
failure.
