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.

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). View Hole SECURING PIGTAIL POWER CORD Note: The proper extension cord is a 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. 4 Cord Lock a 200 Pigtail _.

Figure 10 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. Figure 11 N = TOO Figure 12 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. 5 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). Al MEN LAGO CEO Aal) uN Figure 13 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 Figure 15 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). = 1 — Spool J Cap Figure 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). REPLACING CUTTING LINE 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 Figure 20 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). + Figure 21 GENERAL MAINTENANCE Inadvertent starting can cause per- sonal injury. Always be sure your trimmer is unplugged and stopped before attempting any maintenance. 1. To keep the exterior clean, just wipe it off with a damp cloth. Never hose it down. 2. Wipe or scrape clean the drum and spool area any time there is an accumu- lation of dirt or cuttings. 3. Check and tighten all fasteners. if any part is damaged, repair or replace it. 4, The air exhaust vent is located on underside of shield (Fig. 22). Scrape vent clean regularly. 5. Wipe debris away from air intake holes in motor housing (Fig. 22). Figure 22 IMPORTANT: Keep intake and exhaust vents free of grass and debris to pre- vent motor overheating and possible fail- ure. 6.
