Recommended Oil Type
Only use a two-cycle engine oil formulated for use in
high-performance, air-cooled two-cycle engines. Toro
brand 2-cycle oil is formulated for use in
high-performance, air-cooled two-cycle engines.
IMPORTANT: Do not use National Marine
Manufacturer’s Association (NMMA) or BIA
certified oils. This type of 2–cycle engine oil
does not have the proper additives for
air-cooled, 2–cycle engines and can cause
engine damage.
Do not use automotive motor oil. This type of
oil does not have the proper additives for
air-cooled, 2–cycle engines and can cause
engine damage.
5
Recommended Fuel Type
Use clean, fresh lead-free gasoline, including
oxygenated or reformulated gasoline, with an octane
rating of 85 or higher. To ensure freshness, purchase
only the quantity of gasoline that can be used in 30
days. Use of lead-free gasoline results in fewer
combustion chamber deposits and longer spark plug
life. Use of premium grade fuel is not necessary or
recommended.
Use Of Fuel Additives
IMPORTANT: NEVER USE METHANOL,
GASOLINE CONTAINING METHANOL,
GASOHOL CONTAINING MORE THAN
10% ETHANOL, PREMIUM GASOLINE,
OR WHITE GAS BECAUSE ENGINE
FUEL SYSTEM DAMAGE COULD
RESULT.
DO NOT USE FUEL ADDITIVES OTHER
THAN THOSE MANUFACTURED FOR
FUEL STABILIZATION DURING
STORAGE SUCH AS TORO’S
STABILIZER/CONDITIONER OR A
SIMILAR PRODUCT. TORO’S
STABILIZER/CONDITIONER IS A
PETROLEUM DISTILLATE BASED
CONDITIONER/STABILIZER. TORO
DOES NOT RECOMMEND STABILIZERS
WITH AN ALCOHOL BASE SUCH AS
ETHANOL, METHANOL OR ISOPROPYL.
ADDITIVES SHOULD NOT BE USED TO
TRY TO ENHANCE THE POWER OR
PERFORMANCE OF MACHINE.
Mixing Gasoline And Oil
IMPORTANT: The engine used on this Hedge
Trimmer is of a 2–cycle design. The internal
moving parts of the engine, i.e., crankshaft
bearings, piston pin bearings and piston to
cylinder wall contact surfaces, require oil
mixed with the gasoline for lubrication.
Failure to add oil to the gasoline or failure to
mix oil with the gasoline at the appropriate
ratio will cause major engine damage which
will void your warranty.
For your fuel premix, only use a quality oil
designed for 2–cycle air cooled engines. Toro
50:1 2–Cycle Oil is formulated to meet the
requirements of high-performance, air-cooled
two-cycle engines.
Fuel Mixture
The fuel:oil ratio is 50 parts gasoline to 1 part oil or
50:1.
Note:
Never use a mixing ratio less than
50:1 regardless of the oil package
mixing instructions. Ratios less the
50:1, (for example, 60:1, 80:1,
100:1), reduce the amount of
lubrication to the internal moving
parts of the engine and can cause
damage.

other serious injuries.
Mark the container to identify it as fuel mix for
the Hedge Trimmer.
HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD
• Do not touch the sharpened edges of the
cutting blades.
• Always wear gloves to help protect your
hands and fingers from injury
Use regular unleaded gasoline and fill the
container with half the required amount of
gasoline.
Pour the correct amount of oil into the container
then add the remaining amount of gasoline.
Close the container tightly and shake it
momentarily to evenly mix the oil and the
gasoline before filling the fuel tank on the Hedge
Trimmer.
Before operating the Hedge Trimmer, it is necessary
to check the adjustment of the cutting blades. Blades
that are too loose may vibrate, and will not provide a
clean, smooth cut.
IMPORTANT: Blades that are too tight can
cause overloading. This may damage the
equipment. Do not overtighten the blades.
1.
With the blade cover installed, loosen the nuts
on the blade screws (Fig. 4).
2.
Remove the blade cover, gently turn the blade
screws in until they are snug, then back the
screws out 1/4 to 1/2 turn (Fig. 4).
3.
Hold the blade screws in place and tighten the
nuts (Fig. 4).
4.
Always shake the premix fuel container
momentarily before filling the fuel tank
Liberally coat the cutting blades with light oil
(Fig. 15).
5.
Always use a spout or funnel when fueling to
reduce fuel spillage.
Start the engine and operate the Hedge Trimmer
at full speed for at least one minute, then stop
the engine.
6.
When the blades are motionless, touch the flat
surface of the blades with your hand. Do not
touch the cutting edges of the teeth. The blades
should be warm. If the blades are too hot to
touch, loosen the screws another 1/8 turn
(Fig. 4).
When refilling the Hedge Trimmer fuel tank,
clean around the fuel tank cap to prevent dirt and
debris from entering the tank during cap
removal.
Fill the tank only to within 1/4–1/2 inch
(6mm–13mm) from the top of the tank. Avoid
filling to the top of the tank filler neck.

Operation
• Read the Safety instructions on page 2
concerning proper use of the Hedge
Trimmer.
The Toro Hedge Trimmer is designed for cutting and
trimming foliage and small branches up to 1/4 inch
(6mm) in diameter. Although the Toro Hedge
Trimmer is capable of cutting larger diameter
branches, wear and tear on the machine would be
proportionally increased.
This Hedge Trimmer is equipped with a
non-adjustable fuel mixture carburetor. The engine
idle speed is the only adjustment for the operator.
• Always wear gloves and protective clothing
when operating the Hedge Trimmer.
The cutting blades may be moving during idle speed
adjustment. Wear the recommended personal
protective equipment and observe all safety
instructions. Keep hands and body away from the
blade area.
•
If the cutting blades become jammed, stop the
engine immediately.
•
When the throttle trigger is released, the engine
should return to an idle speed between 2700 and 3300
RPM, or just below the clutch engagement speed.
The cutting blades must not move and the engine
should not stall (stop running) at engine idle speed.
Make certain all moving parts have stopped and
disconnect the spark plug before inspecting the
equipment for damage.
•
Never use a Hedge Trimmer that has chipped,
cracked or broken cutting blades.
To adjust the engine idle speed, rotate the idle speed
adjustment screw on the carburetor (Fig. 8).
•
Turn the idle speed screw in (clockwise) to
increase the engine idle speed.
•
Turn the screw out (counterclockwise) to
decrease the engine idle speed.
If idle speed adjustment is necessary, and if after
adjustment the cutting blades move or the engine
stalls, stop using the Hedge Trimmer immediately!

Cylinder Cooling Fins
Maintenance Interval
•
The spark arrester should be inspected and
cleaned after every 25 hours of use.
The cylinder cooling fins should be cleaned after
every 25 hours of operation, or once a week,
whichever comes first.
•
Replace the screen if it cannot be thoroughly
cleaned, or if it is damaged.
Air must flow freely around and through the cylinder
cooling fins to prevent engine overheating. Leaves,
grass, dirt and debris buildup on the fins will increase
the operating temperature of the engine, which can
reduce engine performance and shorten engine life.
Spark Arrester Maintenance
Maintenance Interval
Cooling Fin Cleaning
1.
With the engine cool (ambient or room
temperature), remove the socket head screw
holding the muffler cover, then remove the
muffler cover (Fig. 11).
2.
Loosen the cylinder cover screw and remove the
cylinder cover (Fig. 12).
3.
Clean all dirt and debris from the cooling fins
and from around the cylinder base.
4.
Reinstall the cylinder cover and the muffler
cover (Figs 11 and 12).
Spark Arrester
The spark arrester is installed inside the exhaust
outlet of the muffler. One screw located on the side of
the exhaust outlet holds the spark arrester in place
(Fig. 14). To remove the spark arrester:
1.
Remove the socket head screw holding the
muffler cover, then remove the muffler cover
(Fig. 11).
2.
Remove the spark arrester retaining screw and
washer, then carefully withdraw the spark
arrester using a suitable pair of pliers. Do not
crush or distort the spark arrester flange during
removal (Fig. 14).
3.
Clean the spark arrester with a safety solvent and
a stiff brush. If the spark arrester cannot be
thoroughly cleaned, it must be replaced.
4.
Reinstall the spark arrester and muffler cover
(Figs. 11 and 14).
Lubrication: Gearcase And
Blades
The gearcase and blades should be lubricated after
each 10 hours of use.
POTENTIAL HAZARD
• Muffler surface becomes hot when
Trimmer is in operation and remains hot
for some time after the engine is shut off.
WHAT CAN HAPPEN
• Contact with hot muffler surfaces could
cause a burn.
HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD
• Make sure the muffler is cool before
inspecting and cleaning the spark arrester.
The gearcase has a felt wick located at the blade
opening. As the Hedge Trimmer is used, the grease
within the gearcase becomes very soft. The
reciprocating blades constantly draw small amounts
of grease between the blade contact surfaces for
additional lubrication (Fig. 15).
IMPORTANT: If the gearcase is not
lubricated at the recommended intervals, a
gearcase failure will occur due to a lack of
lubrication. Gearcase failure due to improper
maintenance is not covered by warranty.
11
If the Hedge Trimmer is used under
severe conditions such as high ambient
temperatures (above 75_F/23_C), or
for extended periods of continuous
operation, the gearcase and blades
must be lubricated every two hours.
2.
Pump the primer bulb on the carburetor until all
fuel is discharged through the clear fuel return
hose.
3.
Run the engine to remove any fuel that may
remain in the carburetor.
•
Lubricate the gearcase at the grease fitting with a
good quality #2 lithium-base grease (Fig. 15).
4.
Perform all regular maintenance procedures and
any needed repairs.
•
Lubricate the blades using a light (#10 wt.) oil
(Fig. 15).
5.
Remove the spark plug and squirt a very small
amount of oil into the cylinder.
Note:
General Cleaning and
Tightening
POTENTIAL HAZARD
• Oil may squirt out of the spark plug
opening when you pull the starter cord.
The Toro Hedge Trimmer will provide maximum
performance for many, many hours if it is maintained
properly.
•
WHAT CAN HAPPEN
• Oil squirting out of the spark plug opening
can cause injuries.
Good maintenance includes regular checking of
all fasteners for correct tightness, and cleaning of
the entire machine.
•
Pitch and gum deposits should be removed from
the cutting blades daily.
•
Check the adjustment of the cutting blade
tension regularly (see page 7).
HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD
• Protect your eyes and keep your face away
from the spark plug opening.
6.
Pull the starter cord once.
7.
Slowly pull the starter cord to bring the piston to
the top of the cylinder (TDC).
8.
Reinstall the spark plug.
For long-term storage of the Hedge Trimmer
(Fig. 16):
9.
Liberally lubricate the blades with a light
(#10 wt.) oil.
1.
10. Store the Hedge Trimmer in a dry place away
from excessive heat, sparks or open flame.
Storage

California Emission Control Warranty
Statement
Your Warranty Rights And Obligations
The California Air Resources Board and Toro are pleased to explain the emission control system
warranty of your 1995 and later lawn and garden equipment engine. In California, new lawn and garden
equipment engines must be designed, built and equipped to meet the State’s stringent anti–smog
standards. Toro must warrant the emission control system on your lawn and garden equipment engine for
the periods of time listed below provided there has been no abuse, neglect or improper maintenance of
your lawn and garden equipment engine.
Your emission control system may include parts such as the carburetor or fuel injection system, the
ignition system, and catalytic converter. Also included may be hoses, belts, connectors and other
emission–related assemblies.
Where a warrantable condition exists, Toro will repair your lawn and garden equipment engine at no cost
to you including diagnosis, parts and labor.
The 1995 and later utility and lawn and garden equipment engines are warranted for two years. If any
emission–related part on your engine is defective, the part will be repaired or replaced by Toro.
Owner’s Warranty Responsibilities:
•
As the lawn and garden equipment engine owner, you are responsible for the performance of the
required maintenance listed in your Operator’s manual. Toro recommends that you retain all
receipts covering maintenance on your lawn and garden equipment engine, but Toro cannot deny
warranty solely for the lack of receipts or for your failure to ensure the performance of all scheduled
maintenance.
•
As the lawn and garden equipment engine owner, you should however be aware that Toro may deny
you warranty coverage if your lawn and garden equipment engine or a part has failed due to abuse,
neglect, improper maintenance or unapproved modifications.
•
You are responsible for presenting your lawn and garden equipment engine to a Toro Authorized
Service Dealer as soon as a problem exists. The warranty repairs should be completed in a
reasonable amount of time, not to exceed 30 days.
If you have any questions regarding your warranty rights and responsibilities, you should call
1–800–237–2654.
Manufacturer’s Warranty Coverage:
•
The warranty period begins on the date the engine or equipment is delivered to the retail purchaser.
•
The manufacturer warrants to the initial owner and each subsequent purchaser, that the engine is free
from defects in material and workmanship which cause the failure of a warranted part for a period of
two years.
•
Repair of replacement of warranted part will be performed at no charge to the owner at an
Authorized Toro Service Dealer. For the nearest location, please contact Toro at: 1–800–237–2654.
•
Any warranted part which is not scheduled for replacement, as required maintenance which is
scheduled only for regular inspection to the effect of “Repair or replace as necessary” is warranted
for the warranty period. Any warranted part which is scheduled for replacement as required
maintenance will be warranted for the period of time up to the first scheduled replacement point for
that part.
•
The owner will not be charged for diagnostic labor which leads to the determination that a warranted
part is defective, if the diagnostic work is performed at an Authorized Toro Service Dealer.
•
The manufacturer is liable for damages to other engine components caused by the failure of a
warranted part still under warranty.
•
Failures caused by abuse, neglect or improper maintenance are not covered under warranty.
•
The use of add–on or modified parts can be grounds for disallowing a warranty claim. The
manufacturer is not liable to cover failures or warranted parts caused by the use of add–on or
modified parts.
•
In order to file a claim, go to your nearest Authorized Toro Service Dealer. Warranty services or
repairs will be provided at all Authorized Toro Service Dealers.
•
Any manufacturer approved replacement part may be used in the performance of any warranty
maintenance or repair of emission related parts and will be provided without charge to the owner.
Any replacement part that is equivalent in performance or durability may be used in non–warranty
maintenance or repair and will not reduce the warranty obligations of the manufacturer.
•
The following components are included in the emission related warranty of the engine, air filter,
carburetor, primer, fuel lines, fuel pick up/fuel filter, ignition module, spark plug and muffler.
