A SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
17. Keep all fasteners tight to insure 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 un-
der rotating parts. Keep clear at all
times.
20. If the trimmer should start to vibrate
abnormally, stop the motor and check
immediately for the cause. Vibration is
generally a warning of trouble.
21. Do not operate your Toro trimmer
after it has been dropped or damaged.
Return it to your nearest authorized
service dealer for inspection and repair.
22. When servicing use only identical
replacement parts. Replace or repair
damaged cords.
23. Don't Overreach—Keep proper foot-
ing and balance at all times when oper-
ating the trimmer.
24. Maintain Appliance With Care—Keep
cutting head and motor housing clean
for best performance and to reduce the
risk of injury. Follow General Mainte-
nance Instructions on page 9.
25. CAUTION-—Cutting knife on grass
shield is sharp and care should be taken
when cleaning and handling.
26. EXTENSION CORD REQUIREMENTS—
Use an extension cord suitable for out-
door use and one that complies with the
requirements specified in the Interna-
tional 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
cord to use, choose the next heavier
gage. The smaller the gage number, the
heavier the cord. An undersized cord
causes a drop in line voltage which re-
sults in a loss of power and overheating.
See Figures 9 & 10 for proper cord con-
nection.

CUTTING LINE
Note: The cutting line for your trimmer
is a special monofilament line. Your
trimmer comes complete with a 50 foot
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 head assembly. The
tape must be removed before operation
(Fig. 7).

requirement for safe and efficient use of
your Toro 1410 Trimmer. Use only a
CSA approved extension cord recom-
mended for outdoor use.
1. Secure the pigtail power cord and a
suitable extension cord to trimmer with
cord lock as shown in Figures 9 & 10.
Figure 7
2. A view hole in the spool cap is pro-
vided to show how much line remains
on the spool without removing spool
(Fig. 7).
3. After each use, either retape or loop
the line through the eyelet (Fig. 8) to
prevent unraveling.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Thrown objects can cause injury to
the operator or bystanders. Always
wear safety goggles or other suitable
eye protection, long pants, and
shoes while operating trimmer. Keep
people and pets away from trimming
4. Slowly move unit into and out of area
being cut, maintaining unit at desired
cutting height. This can be either a for-
ward-backward or side-to-side motion
as indicated (Figs. 11 & 12).
area.
Your trimmer will cut grass and small
weeds in difficult and hard to reach
places. However, you will most likely ex-
perience some line breakage during
your first few uses. As you learn the
trimming techniques, you will be able to
cut areas around trees, shrubs, founda-
tion 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.
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.

5. 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.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
6. 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.
7. DO NOT FORCE THE UNIT. Allow the
very tip of the nylon line to do the cut-
ting (especially along walls) (Fig. 13).
Cutting with more than the tip will re-
duce cutting efficiency and overload the
motor.
The tip of the cutting line will wear dur-
ing use and cause a reduction in the
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 restart-
ing the trimmer (page 8, #3) or the line
may tangle around the drum.
a tree. Some line breakage will occur
from moving unit too fast, from entan-
glement with foreign matter, from nor-
mal 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 proce-
dure.
9. Never drag the trimmer spool cap
on the ground while trimming
(Fig. 14). This causes motor overload
and spool cap wear.
10. After each use, either retape or loop
the line through the eyelet to prevent
unraveling (Fig. 15).

8. The life of your cutting line is de-
pendent upon following the preceding
trimming techniques, as well as what is
being cut, and where the cutting is be-
ing done. For example, the line wears
faster when trimming against a founda-
tion wall as opposed to trimming around
Figure 14

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. 16).

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 line has
fed out, wait until you hear the line be-
ing cut to the proper length before con-
tinuing to trim.
Note: To help prevent line tangle, tap
once only to lengthen line. If additional
line is required, wait a few seconds be-
fore retapping trimmer head. Do not al-
low line to wear too short. Keep line
length at 14” diameter as much as pos-
sible.
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 replace-
ment. Replacement spools are available
through your TORO retailer.
REPLACING CUTTING LINE
monofilament cutting line.
Replacement line or prewound replace-
ment spools can be purchased from
your local Toro retailer. The cutting line
used by Toro is specially formulated for
use on your trimmer. Other line may not
provide the same high quality perform-
ance.
1. To remove empty spool, insert widest
possible blade screwdriver snugly into
one of two window slots. With screw-
driver pressed firmly into window slot,
twist screwdriver 1/4 turn. Spool will
snap off (Fig. 17).
A rotating cutting head can cause
personal injury. Always unplug sup-
ply cord and be sure cutting head
has completely stopped rotating
before inverting trimmer.
Figure 17
2. To rewind empty spool, follow the
steps below:
A. Hook one end of line into groove on
spool, allowing no more than 1/8" of
line to protrude. Wind line in direction
of arrows on spool in level rows be-
tween spool flanges (Fig. 18).

1/8” Мах WIND LINE
no more than 3 inches from spool
(Fig. 20).
Figure 18
NOTE: Trimmer will not function
properly if line is wound in the
wrong direction.
. Do not wind more than 50 feet of line
onto spool. Do not use line over
.065" diameter.
. Keep line tight on spool by making a
hook in the line and secure in groove
(Fig. 19).
A loose spool can fly off of ma-
chine and cause injury to operator
or bystanders. Be sure spool is
fully secured before operating the
unit. Replace spool if it is dam-
aged or does not securely snap
on core. Keep bystanders and
pets away from trimming area.
Figure 19
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 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. Unwind

3. If line should tangle or break at eye-
let, 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 (Fig. 21).
