Connecting to a Power
To reduce the risk of electric shock, this appliance has a polarized
plug (i.e., one blade is wider than the other). Use only a polarized,
UL listed (CSA certified in Canada) extension cord recommended
for outdoor use. A polarized plug will fit in a polarized cord only
one way. If the plug does not fit fully in the cord, reverse the cord.
If it still does not fit, purchase a polarized extension cord. If you
have a polarized extension cord and the extension cord plug does
not fit fully into the wall receptacle, reverse the plug. If it still does
not fit, contact a qualified electrician to install the proper outlet. Do
not change the appliance or extension cord plug in any way.
Use only an extension cord recommended for outdoor use.
If you do not fully seat the extension cord on the
inlet plug, or if the plug and cord do not fit firmly, the
loose plug could lead to overheating and cause a fire,
possibly burning you or others.
Install the blower tube and bottom inlet cover.
• Ensure that you fully seat the cord on the plug.

possibly causing serious personal injury to you or
• Do not blow hard objects such as nails, bolts, or
• Do not operate the blower near bystanders or pets.
• Use extra care when cleaning debris from stairs or
other tight areas.
• Wear safety goggles or other suitable eye

Using the Appliance as a
The appliance used as a vacuum is intended for residential use
only. Use it outdoors to collect debris as needed.
Using the appliance as a vacuum can throw debris,
possibly causing serious personal injury to you or
• Do not operate the vacuum without the bag installed
or with the bag zipper open.
• Do not vacuum sharp, pointed, or hard objects that

Separating the Vacuum Tube
Removing Clogged Debris
from the Impeller
Vacuum only dry leaves and soft items. Hard
items such as sticks, rocks, acorns, and pine cones will
damage the impeller.
Do not force the vacuum tube into a pile of
debris or hold the tube upright while force feeding debris into
the tube. Either action may clog and damage the impeller. If
the vacuum starts to vibrate or make abnormal noise, stop it,
unplug the cord, and check for the cause.
Turn off and unplug the appliance from the power source
and wait for all moving parts to stop.
Remove the vacuum tube then remove the debris from the
impeller blades.
Emptying the Bag
Turn off and unplug the vacuum from the power source.
Empty any debris from the bag.
Do not store debris in the bag. To clean the bag, turn it
inside out and shake out any excess debris. Once a year,
hand wash the bag in soapy water and allow it to air dry.
Normal usage of the bag causes it to wear and
deteriorate over time. A worn or deteriorated bag
allows small objects to be thrown through the bag,
possibly injuring you or bystanders.
Check the bag frequently. If it is worn or
deteriorated, replace it with a genuine Toro
vacuum bag.
Always use the shoulder strap whenever you use
the appliance with the bag. This prevents the bag
from dragging on the ground, reducing bag wear
and deterioration.
Check the impeller for any signs of damage. If it is damaged,
contact your Authorized Service Dealer.
Install the vacuum tube, or, if you want to switch to blower
mode, the bottom inlet cover. Refer to Converting from
Blower to Vacuum (page 3) or Converting from Vacuum to
Blower (page 4) for more information.
A selection of Toro approved attachments and accessories is
available for use with the machine to enhance and expand its
capabilities. Contact your Authorized Service Dealer or authorized
Toro distributor or go to for a list of all approved
attachments and accessories.
To ensure optimum performance and continued safety certification
of the machine, use only genuine Toro replacement parts and
accessories. Replacement parts and accessories made by other
manufacturers could be dangerous, and such use could void the
product warranty.
In a double-insulated appliance, two systems of insulation
are provided instead of grounding. No grounding means is
provided on a double-insulated appliance, nor should a means for
grounding be added to the appliance. Servicing a double-insulated
appliance requires extreme care and knowledge of the system,
and should be done only by the qualified service personnel
at your Authorized Service Dealer. Replacement parts for a
double-insulated appliance must be identical to the parts they
replace. A double-insulated appliance is marked with the words
“Double Insulation” or “Double Insulated.” The symbol (square
within a square)
may also be marked on the appliance.
Store the appliance and extension cord indoors, in a cool dry
location, out of reach of children and animals.
If your blower fails to run when you turn it on, check the following
before contacting your Authorized Service Dealer:
Ensure that the bottom inlet cover or vacuum tube is locked in
Ensure that the power cord is secured in place at the back of
the appliance and that the plug is fully seated.
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—
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
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.
