Safety Warnings
3.
Electrical safety
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 such as pipes, radiators, ranges and
refrigerators. 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. Use of an RCD or GFI
reduces the risk of electric shock.
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.
D.
Remove any adjusting key or wrench before turning
the power tool on. A wrench or a key left attached to

Hedge Trimmer Safety Warnings
• Use both hands when operating the hedge trimmer.
Using one hand could cause loss of control and result
in serious personal injury.
Maintain power tools. Check for misalignment or
binding of moving parts, breakage of parts and
any other condition that may affect the power tools
operation. If damaged, have the power tool repaired
before use. Many accidents are caused by poorly
maintained power tools.
F.
Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly
maintained cutting tools with sharp cutting edges are
less likely to bind and are easier to control.
G.
Use the power tool, accessories and tool bits etc.
in accordance with these instructions, taking into
account the working conditions and the work to
be performed.. Use of the power tool for operations
different from those intended could result in a hazardous
situation.
•
Keep all parts of the body away from the cutter blade. Do
not remove cut material or hold material to be cut when
blades are moving. Make sure the switch is off when
clearing jammed material. Blades coast after turn off. A
moment of inattention while operating the hedge trimmer may
result in serious personal injury.
•
Carry the hedge trimmer by the handle with the cutter
blade stopped. Proper handling of the hedge trimmer will
reduce possible personal injury from the cutter blades.
•
Hold the power tool by insulated gripping surfaces only,
because the cutter blade may contact hidden wiring or its
own cord. Cutter blades contacting a “live” wire may make
exposed metal parts of the power tool “live” and could give
the operator an electric shock.
•
DANGER – Keep hands away from blade. Contact with
blade will result in serious personal injury.

The trimmer blade should be oiled before and after each
use.
1.
Stop the motor and remove the battery.
2.
Clean dirt and debris from the body of the hedge trimmer,
using a damp cloth with a mild detergent.
Note:
Do not use any strong detergents on the plastic
housing or the handle. They can be damaged by certain
aromatic oils such as pine and lemon, and by solvents such
as kerosene.
Operating Tips
•
The unit is used for cutting in either direction in a slow,
sweeping action from side to side.
•
Lay the hedge trimmer on a flat surface. Apply light weight
machine oil along the edge of the top blade. If you will be
using the hedge trimmer for an extended period of time, it is
advisable to oil the blade during use.
Stand so that you are stable and balanced on both feet. Do
not overreach.
Note:
•
•
Inspect and clear the area of any hidden objects.
Never use a blade after hitting a hard object without first
inspecting it for damage. Do not use if any damage is
detected.
•
Never touch blades or service unit with the power supply
connected.
•
Do not force the hedge trimmer through heavy shrubbery.
This can cause the blades to bind and slow down. If the
blades slow down, reduce the pace.
•
Do not attempt to cut stems or twigs that are larger than
9/16 in., or those obviously too large to feed into the cutting
blade. Use a non-powered hand saw or pruning saw to trim
large stems.
•
If blades do become jammed, stop the motor, allow the blades
to stop, and remove the battery before attempting to remove
the obstruction.
•
If desired, you can use a string to help cut your hedge level.
Decide how high you want the hedge. Stretch a piece of
string along the hedge at the desired height. Trim the hedge
just above the guide line of string.
•
Trim the side of a hedge so that it will be slightly narrower at
the top. More of the hedge will be exposed when shaped this
way, and it will be more uniform.
Do not oil while the hedge trimmer is running.
Preparing the Battery Pack
for Recycling
Never use the hedge trimmer near power lines, fencing,
posts, buildings, or other immovable objects.
•
•
3.
WARNING
Before recycling, cover the battery pack's terminals
with heavy-duty adhesive tape. Do not attempt to
destroy or disassemble the battery pack or remove
any of its components. Lithium-ion batteries must be
recycled or disposed of properly at the nearest battery
recycling facility.

Toro Service Dealer. Your Toro Dealer is specially trained to repair
Toro products and will ensure that your Toro stays “All” Toro.
Storage
Wear gloves when trimming thorny or prickly growth. When
trimming new growth, use a wide sweeping action, so that the
stems are fed directly into the cutting blade.
•
•
Clean all foreign material from the product.
•
Keep away from corrosive agents such as garden chemicals
and de-icing salts.
Store it in a well-ventilated place that is inaccessible to
children.
Troubleshooting
Using the battery when it is hot can reduce the operating time.
The battery will automatically stop working when it is overheated
to prevent damage to it. Remove the battery from the charger and
allow it to cool before placing it back into the trimmer.
Using the battery when there is moisture on the leads can cause
the trimmer to malfunction. Allow the battery to dry or wipe it dry
before placing it back into the trimmer.

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.
