Safety
wrench or a key left attached to the power
tool may result in personal injury.
When using electric power tools, basic safety
precautions should always be followed to reduce
the risk of fire, electric shock, and personal injury,
including the following:
E.
Do not overreach. Keep proper
footing and balance at all times. This
enables better control of the power tool in
unexpected situations.
F.
Dress properly. Do not wear loose
clothing or jewelry. Tie back and keep
your hair, clothing, and gloves away
from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewelry,
or long hair can get caught in moving parts.
G.
If devices are provided for the dust
extraction and collection, ensure that
these are connected and properly
used. Using these devices can reduce
dust-related hazards.
H.
Keep your hands and feet away from the
cutting area.
WARNING
Failure to follow all warnings and instructions
may result in electric shock, fire and/or
serious personal injury.
Read all safety warnings and all instructions.
Save all warnings and instructions for future
reference.
The term “power tool” in all the warnings refers to
your corded power tool or battery-operated (cordless)
power tool.
1.
Power tool use and care
A.
Do not operate power tools in explosive
atmospheres, such as in the presence
of flammable liquids, gasses, or dust.
Power tools create sparks, which may ignite
the dust or fumes.
Do not force the power tool. Use the
correct power tool for your application.
The correct power tool will do the job
better and safer at the rate for which it was
designed.
B.
Keep children and bystanders away
while operating a power tool. Distractions
can cause you to lose control.
Do not use the power tool if the switch
does not turn it on and off. Any power tool
that cannot be controlled with the switch is
dangerous and must be repaired.
C.
Disconnect the plug from the power
source and/or the battery pack from the
power tool before adjusting it, changing
accessories on it, or storing it. Such
preventive safety measures reduce the risk
of starting the power tool accidentally.
D.
Store idle power tools out of the reach
of children, and do not allow persons
unfamiliar with the power tool or these
instructions to operate the power tool.
Power tools are dangerous in the hands of
untrained users.
E.
Store idle appliances indoors. When not
in use, appliances should be stored indoors
in a dry and high or locked-up place, out of
the reach of children.
A.
Keep work area clean and well lit.
Cluttered or dark areas invite accidents.
B.
C.
2.
3.
Work area safety
Personal safety
A.
B.
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 could result in serious personal injury.
Use personal protective equipment.
Always wear eye protection. Protective
equipment such as a dust mask, non-skid
safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing protection
used for appropriate conditions reduces
personal injuries.
C.
Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure
that the switch is in the OFF position
before you connect the tool to a power
source and/or battery pack, pick it up,
or carry it. Carrying power tools with
your finger on the switch or energizing
power tools that have the switch on invites
accidents.
F.
Maintain power tools. Check for
misalignment or binding of moving
parts, broken parts, and any other
condition that may affect the operation
of the power tools. If damaged, have the
power tool repaired before use. Many
accidents are caused by poorly maintained
power tools.
D.
Remove any adjusting key or wrench
before turning the power tool on. A
G.
Keep cutting tools sharp and clean.
Properly maintained cutting tools with sharp
3
cutting edges are less likely to bind and are
easier to control.
H.
I.
J.
K.
4.
Use the power tool, accessories,
tool bits, etc. in accordance with
these instructions and in the manner
intended for the particular type of power
tool, taking into account the working
conditions and the work to be performed.
Using the power tool for operations different
from those intended could result in a
hazardous situation.
Use extreme caution when cutting brush
and saplings. The slender material may
catch the saw chain and be whipped toward
you or pull you off balance.
H.
Carry the chain saw by the front handle
with the chain saw switched off and
away from your body. When transporting
or storing the chain saw, always use
the guide bar cover. Proper handling of
the chain saw reduces the likelihood of
accidental contact with the moving saw
chain.
Keep guards in place and in working
order.
I.
Use only replacement guide bars and
chains specified by the manufacturer.
Incorrect replacement guide bars and
chains may cause chain breakage and/or
kickback.
Follow the instructions for lubricating,
chain tensioning, and changing
accessories. Improperly tensioned or
lubricated chain may either break or
increase the chance for kickback.
J.
Keep handles dry, clean, and free from
oil and grease. Greasy, oily handles are
slippery, causing loss of control.
K.
Avoid kickback. Kickback may occur when
the nose or tip of the guide bar touches an
object, or when the wood pinches the saw
chain while you are cutting. Tip contact may
cause a sudden reverse reaction, kicking
the guide bar up and back toward you;
pinching the saw chain along the top of the
guide bar may push the guide bar rapidly
back toward you. Either of these reactions
may cause you to lose control of the saw,
which could result in a serious personal
injury. You can avoid kickback by taking
proper precautions as given below:
Follow the manufacturer’s sharpening
and maintenance instructions for the
saw chain. Decreasing the depth gauge
height can lead to increased kickback.
Chain Saw Safety
A.
Hold the power tool by insulated gripping
surfaces only, because the saw chain
may contact hidden wiring or its own
cord. Saw chains contacting a live wire may
make exposed metal parts of the power tool
live and could give you an electric shock.
B.
Wear safety glasses, hearing protection,
and protective equipment for your head,
hands, legs, and feet. Wearing adequate
protective clothing reduces personal injury
by flying debris or accidental contact with
the saw chain.
C.
Cutting trees can be hazardous and
requires expertise. Do not use the chain
saw to fell large trees that have a diameter
greater than the length of the guide bar.
D.
Do not operate a chain saw in a tree.
Operating a chain saw while up in a tree
may result in personal injury.
E.
Always keep proper footing and operate
the chain saw only when standing on a
fixed, secure, and level surface. Slippery
or unstable surfaces such as ladders may
cause a loss of balance or control of the
chain saw.
F.
G.
• Use both hands whenever you
operate the chain saw. Maintain a
firm grip, with thumbs and fingers
encircling the chain saw handles,
with both hands on the saw, and with
your body and arm in position that
allows you to resist kickback forces.
You can control kickback forces if proper
precautions are taken. Do not let go of
the chain saw!
• Do not overreach and do not cut
above shoulder height. This helps
prevent unintended tip contact and
enables better control of the chain saw
in unexpected situations.
5.
Service
Have your power tool serviced by a
qualified repair person using only identical
replacement parts. This ensures that the safety
of the power tool is maintained.
When cutting a limb that is under
tension, be alert for spring back. When
the tension in the wood fiber is released, the
spring loaded limb may strike you and/or
throw the chain saw out of control.
6.

Pruning a Tree
Note: Keeping your left arm straight with your
elbow locked helps reduce kickback.
WARNING
Cutting higher limbs from a tree off the ground
can put you in an unstable position that could
be unsafe for you while handling a chain saw,
resulting in possible serious personal injury
or death to you or bystanders.
When cutting limbs from a standing tree, use
the following practices:
• Do not climb on limbs or branches with a
chain saw.
• Do not overreach, and cut with both hands
on the chain saw.
• Ensure that all bystanders are away from
the area where branches may fall.
g204033
Figure 12
2.
Stand to the left side of the chain saw and not
in line with the chain, and position yourself for
balanced, stable footing while sawing.
3.
Stand on solid, even ground in front of the wood
to be cut.
4.
While cutting, have the wood near the chain saw
head, at the exposed near end of the guide bar.
You can use the bucking teeth (Figure 13) to add
pressure but it works best with a sharp-toothed
chain.
1.
Grip the chain saw as shown in Figure 12.
2.
While cutting small branches, apply light
pressure to the branch to be cut.
3.
While cutting larger branches, make a shallow
undercut and then complete the cut from the
topside of the branch.
A.
Cut from the underside of the limb about 15
cm (6 inches) from the trunk. Cut a third of
the way through the limb.
B.
Cut 5.0 to 10.0 cm (2 to 4 inches) farther
out on the limb and from above. Cut the
limb until it falls.
C.
Cut about a third of the diameter of the limb
stub from underneath as close to the trunk
as possible.
D.
Cut the limb stub from above so that it
meets the previous cut as close to the trunk
as possible.

Press the chain saw lightly against the wood,
allowing the weight of the chain saw to drive the
cutting.
6.
Keep steady pressure on the chain saw
throughout the cut, and release pressure only
near the end of the cut.
Felling a Tree
WARNING
Cutting standing trees requires expertise and
poses hazards.
• Before attempting to cut a big tree, practice
cutting a few branches, limbs, or small logs
to familiarize yourself with the chain saw.
• Do not use this chain saw to fell large trees
with a diameter larger than the length of
the guide bar.
The proper operator stance for felling a tree is shown
in Figure 14.
11
g228707
Figure 16
g195831
Figure 14
1.
Determine the direction that the tree will fall.
Consider the wind direction, if there are heavier
limbs on 1 side of the tree, and the natural tilt
of the tree, if any.
2.
Determine a clear, safe retreat path away from
the danger area; refer to Figure 15.
1. First cut
3. Hinge
2. Second cut
4. Back cut
5.
Make a second cut to form a notch, starting the
cut at least 5 cm (2 inches) above and away
from the first cut (Figure 16).
6.
Make the back cut from the opposite side of the
notch and about 5 cm (2 inches) higher than the
bottom of the notch as shown in Figure 16.
Important: Stop the third cut 2.5 to 5.0 cm
(1 to 2 inches) from the notch to form a hinge
between the cuts (Figure 16), which keeps
the tree from falling in the wrong direction
or twisting as it falls.
Note: As the back cut nears the hinge (Figure
16), the tree should begin to fall.
7.
When the tree begins to fall, remove the chain
saw, shut it off, put it down, and retreat along the
path you determined in step 2.
Important: If the tree begins to fall in an
undesired direction, immediately stop the
cut, shut off the chain saw, put the chain saw
down, and use a wedge to open the cut and
push the tree in the desired direction.

Grip the chain saw as shown in (Figure 12).
4.
Make the first cut a third of the way through the
tree diameter on the side where you want the
tree to fall (Figure 16).
Note: Making this cut prevents the chain saw
from being pinched while making the next cut.

Limbing a Fallen Tree
1.
Grip the chain saw as shown in Figure 12.
2.
Cut off the smaller limbs from the tree that are
not supporting its weight off the ground.
g194825

Bucking a Log
• If you are cutting branches from a fallen tree or
cutting a log into lengths, support the log off the
ground (preferably on a sawbuck); refer to Figure
20.
g194820
Figure 20
• If the log is supported on an end, cut from the top.
If the chain saw binds in the cut, do not attempt
to free it by running the motor. Shut off the saw,
then use a wedge to pry open the cut and release
the saw.
• If the log is supported on both ends, start from
g194819
Figure 21
the top and cut about a third of the way through
the log (Figure 20A). Make a second cut from the
underside to meet the first cut (Figure 20B). This
keeps the log from pinching the saw.
• If the log is on a hill, always stand on the uphill
side of the log (Figure 22).
• If the log is supported along its entire length, cut
all the way through the log from the top.
• If the log is supported on both ends but not in the
middle, cut a third of the diameter from the top,
then either cut from the bottom or roll the log over
to meet the first cut (Figure 21).

Servicing the Guide Bar,
Chain, and Drive Sprocket
Ensure that the chain is properly tensioned. A loose
chain will shorten the life of the drive sprocket and the
guide bar and may break the chain. An overtightened
chain will overheat the guide bar and chain, causing
rapid wear and possible motor burnout. Also, check
the chain tension after a few cuts. A new chain usually
stretches and requires adjustment after its first use.
Service Interval: Yearly or before storage
DANGER
Contact with the chain saw teeth can cause
serious personal injury.
The chain tension is correct when you are able to use
a gloved hand to pull the chain smoothly around the
guide bar. The chain should remain in contact with
the bottom edge of the guide bar.

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.
