A.
Power tool plugs must match the outlet. Never
modify the plug in any way. Do not use any
adapter plugs with earthed (grounded) power tools.
Unmodified plugs and matching outlets will reduce risk
of electric shock.
B.
Avoid body contact with earthed or grounded
surfaces. There is an increased risk of electric shock if
your body is earthed or grounded.
C.
Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord for
carrying, pulling or unplugging the power tool.
Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges or
moving parts. Damaged or entangled cords increase
the risk of electric shock.
D.
Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions.
Water entering a power tool will increase the risk of
electric shock.
E.
If operating a power tool in a damp location is
unavoidable, use a supply protected by a residual
current device (RCD) in AUS or a ground fault
interrupt (GFI) in the USA.

General Safety Rules
Personal safety
A.
Stay alert; watch what you are doing and use
common sense when operating a power tool. Do
not use a power tool while you are tired or under the
influence of drugs, alcohol or medication. A moment
of inattention while operating power tools may result
in serious personal injury.
B.
Use personal protective equipment. Always wear
eye protection. Protective equipment such as dust
mask, non-skid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing
protection used for appropriate conditions will reduce
personal injuries.
C.
Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure the switch
is in the off-position before connecting to power
source and/or battery pack, picking up or carrying
the tool. Carrying power tools with your finger on the
switch or energizing power tools that have the switch
on invites accidents.
WARNING: When using electric gardening appliances, basic
safety precautions should always be followed to reduce the risk of
fire, electric shock, and personal injury, including the following:
Read all instructions.
The term “power tool” in all of the warnings refers to your
mains-operated (corded) power tool or battery-operated (cordless)
power tool.
1.
Work area safety
A.
Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or dark
areas invite accidents.
B.
Do not operate power tools in explosive
atmospheres, such as in the presence of flammable
liquids, gases or dust. Power tools create sparks
which may ignite the dust or fumes.
D.
Keep children and bystanders away while operating
a power tool. Distractions can cause you to lose
control.
Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance
at all times. This enables better control of the power
tool in unexpected situations.
E.
Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or
jewelry. Keep your hair, clothing and gloves away

Operating Tips
5.
Brush debris away from air intake vents on motor housing
to prevent the motor from overheating.
•
Keep the trimmer tilted toward the area being cut; this is the
best cutting area.
•
The string trimmer cuts when passing the unit from left to
right. This will avoid throwing debris at you.
•
Use the tip of the string to do the cutting; do not force string
head into uncut grass.
Use only 1.65 mm (0.065 inch) diameter monofilament string. Use
original manufacturer’s replacement string for best performance
(Toro Part No. 88532 or 88524).
•
Wire and picket fences cause extra string wear, even
breakage. Stone and brick walls, curbs, and wood may wear
string rapidly.
Important:
•
Avoid trees and shrubs. Tree bark, wood moldings, siding,
and fence posts can easily be damaged by the strings.
Replacing the Spool
Using a larger diameter string will cause the
motor to overheat and fail.
1.
Remove the battery.
2.
Push in the tabs on the side of the spool retainer (Figure 13).

3.
Pull the spool retainer up to remove it and remove the spool.
4.
To install the new spool, ensure that the string is captured in
one of the retaining slots on the new spool. Make sure the
end of the string extends approximately 6 inches (152 mm).
After each use of the trimmer, complete the following:
1.
Remove the battery from the trimmer.
5.
2.
Wipe the trimmer clean with a damp cloth. Do not hose the
trimmer down or submerge it in water.
Install the new spool so that the string aligns with the eyelet
in the string head. Thread the string into the eyelet.
6.
Pull the string extending from the string head so the string
releases from the slot in the spool.
7.
Reinstall the spool retainer by depressing tabs into slots and
pushing down until spool retainer clicks into place.
CAUTION
The line cut-off blade on the deflector is sharp and
can cut you.
Replacing the String
Do not use your hands to clean the deflector
shield and blade.
3.
Wipe or scrape clean the cutting head area any time there is
an accumulation of debris.
4.
Check and tighten all fasteners. If any part is damaged or
lost, repair or replace it.

the trimmer to malfunction. Allow the battery to dry or wipe it dry
before placing it back into the trimmer.
2. Hole
1. Spool
Remove any old string remaining on the spool.
The spool accepts up to 4.5 m (15 ft) of string.Use only 1.65
mm (0.065 inch) diameter monofilament string.
Note: Do not use any other gauge or type of string, as this
could damage the trimmer.
4.
Insert the string into the anchor hole in the upper part of
the spool (Figure 14). Wind the string onto the spool in the
direction shown by the arrows on the spool.
5.
Place the string in the slot on the upper spool flange, leaving
about 152 mm 6 inch (6 inches) extended beyond the slot.
Note:
Do not overfill. After winding the string, there should
be at least 6 mm 1/4 inch (1/4 inch) between the wound
string and the outside edge of the spool.
6.
Replace the spool and the spool retainer. Refer to Replacing
the Spool (page 10) earlier in this manual.

California Proposition 65 Warning Information
What is this warning?
You may see a product for sale that has a warning label like the following:
WARNING: Cancer and Reproductive Harm—www.p65Warnings.ca.gov.
What is Prop 65?
Prop 65 applies to any company operating in California, selling products in California, or manufacturing products that may be sold in or brought into
California. It mandates that the Governor of California maintain and publish a list of chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects, and/or other
reproductive harm. The list, which is updated annually, includes hundreds of chemicals found in many everyday items. The purpose of Prop 65 is to
inform the public about exposure to these chemicals.
Prop 65 does not ban the sale of products containing these chemicals but instead requires warnings on any product, product packaging, or literature with
the product. Moreover, a Prop 65 warning does not mean that a product is in violation of any product safety standards or requirements. In fact, the
California government has clarified that a Prop 65 warning “is not the same as a regulatory decision that a product is ‘safe’ or ‘unsafe.’” Many of these
chemicals have been used in everyday products for years without documented harm. For more information, go to https://oag.ca.gov/prop65/faqs-view-all.
A Prop 65 warning means that a company has either (1) evaluated the exposure and has concluded that it exceeds the “no significant risk level”; or (2)
has chosen to provide a warning based on its understanding about the presence of a listed chemical without attempting to evaluate the exposure.
Does this law apply everywhere?
Prop 65 warnings are required under California law only. These warnings are seen throughout California in a wide range of settings, including but not
limited to restaurants, grocery stores, hotels, schools, and hospitals, and on a wide variety of products. Additionally, some online and mail order
retailers provide Prop 65 warnings on their websites or in catalogs.
How do the California warnings compare to federal limits?
Prop 65 standards are often more stringent than federal and international standards. There are various substances that require a Prop 65 warning
at levels that are far lower than federal action limits. For example, the Prop 65 standard for warnings for lead is 0.5 μg/day, which is well below
the federal and international standards.
Why don’t all similar products carry the warning?
•
•
Products sold in California require Prop 65 labelling while similar products sold elsewhere do not.
•
•
The enforcement of Prop 65 is inconsistent.
A company involved in a Prop 65 lawsuit reaching a settlement may be required to use Prop 65 warnings for its products, but other companies
making similar products may have no such requirement.
Companies may elect not to provide warnings because they conclude that they are not required to do so under Prop 65; a lack of warnings for a
product does not mean that the product is free of listed chemicals at similar levels.
Why does Toro include this warning?
Toro has chosen to provide consumers with as much information as possible so that they can make informed decisions about the products they buy and
use. Toro provides warnings in certain cases based on its knowledge of the presence of one or more listed chemicals without evaluating the level of
exposure, as not all the listed chemicals provide exposure limit requirements. While the exposure from Toro products may be negligible or well within the
“no significant risk” range, out of an abundance of caution, Toro has elected to provide the Prop 65 warnings. Moreover, if Toro does not provide these
warnings, it could be sued by the State of California or by private parties seeking to enforce Prop 65 and subject to substantial penalties.
