SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
This safety alert symbol
means CAUTION, WARN-
ING or DANGER —
“personal safety instruc-
tion”. Read and under-
stand the instruction
because it has to do with
safety. Failure to comply with the instruction
may result in personal injury.
Improper use or maintenance of the machine can
result in injury. To reduce the potential for injury,
comply with the following safety instructions.
BEFORE OPERATING
1. Read and understand the contents of this
Operator's Manual before operating the machine.
Become familiar with all controls and know how to
stop quickly. A free replacement manual is available
by sending complete Model and Serial Number to:
The Toro Company
8111 Lyndale Avenue South
Minneapolis, Minnesota 55420
2. Do not allow children to operate the machine.
Do not allow adults to operate the machine
without proper instruction.
3. Remove all debris or other objects that might
be picked up and thrown by the cutter blades. Keep
all bystanders away from the mowing area.
4. Keep all shields and safety devices in place. If
a shield, safety device or decal is defective or
damaged, repair or replace it before operation is
commenced. Also tighten any loose nuts, bolts and
screws to assure machine is in safe operating
condition.
5. Do not operate machine while wearing sandals,
tennis shoes, sneakers or shorts. Also, do not wear
loose fitting clothing which could get caught in
moving parts. Always wear long pants and sub-
stantial shoes. Wearing safety glasses, safety shoes
and a helmet is advisable and required by some
local ordinances and insurance regulations.
6. Fill fuel tank with gasoline before starting the
engine. Avoid spilling gasoline. Since gasoline is
flammable, handle it carefully.
A. Use an approved gasoline container.
B. Do not fill fuel tank indoors, when the engine
Is running, or until engine cools for several
minutes after running.
C. Do not smoke while handling gasoline.
D. Fill fuel tank outdoors and up to about one half
inch from top of the tank, not the filler neck.
E. Open doors if engine will be run in the garage
because exhaust fumes are dangerous and
could possibly be deadly. Do not run engine
indoors.
F. Wipe up any gasoline that spilled, and install
gasoline container cap and rider fuel tank cap
before starting the engine.
7. Before attempting to start the engine, shift into
neutral, move deck engagement switch into DIS-
ENGAGE position and lock parking brake. Engine will
not start with key unless gear shift is in neutral, deck
engagement switch is in DISENGAGE position, and
the operator is on the vehicle seat.
8. Assure interlock system is functioning correctly
before each use of the rider. Have all safety related
components and safety interlock switches checked by
an Authorized TORO Service Dealer every two years
to assure safe operation of the rider.
WHILE OPERATING
9. Never carry passengers on the rider.
10. Keep people and pets a safe distance away from
the rider and area of operation.
11. Do not run the engine in a confined area
without adequate ventilation. Exhaust fumes are
hazardous and could possibly be deadly.
12. Using the machine demands attention, and to
prevent loss of control:
A. Mow only in daylight or when there is good
artificial light.
Watch for holes or other hidden hazards.
Do not drive close to a drop off, ditch, creek or
other hazard.
D. Reduce speed when making sharp turns and
when turning on hillsides.
Never mow steep slopes.
F. Never mow side hills over 10°. See slope
gage on page 30.
13. During operation the grass deflector or complete
rear grass catcher assembly must be installed on
mower housing and rider. Move deck engagement
switch into DISENGAGE, shift into neutral, set park-
ing brake, and shut engine off before removing the
rear grass catcher hopper or unclogging discharge
chute or tube. Use a stick to remove any obstruction.
3
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
14. Before backing up, move deck engagement switch
into DISENGAGE. Do not mow in reverse unless ab-
solutely necessary and then only after careful obser-
vation of the entire area behind the mower.
15. Cut grass slopes up and down, never across the
face. When going uphill or downhill do not stop or
start suddenly. To prevent tipping or loss of control,
reduce speed on slopes and when making turns.
Extreme caution must be used when changing
direction on slopes. If machine stops while going
uphill, stop blade and back slowly down.
16. Watch out for traffic when crossing or near roads.
Always yield the right-of-way.
17. If the cutting blades strike a solid object or the
machine vibrates abnormally, shut engine off.
Remove high tension wires from spark plugs to
prevent possibility of accidental starting. Check
cutting unit and traction unit for damage and defec-
tive parts. Repair any damage before restarting the
engine and operating the cutting unit. Be sure blades
are in good condition and blade nuts are tight.
18. Keep face, hands, feet, or any other part of the
body and clothing away from concealed, moving, or
rotating parts such as the cutter blades, discharge
area, wheels, belts, and engine. Always sit on the seat
while operating the rider and mower.
19. When driving from one area to another, crossing
a gravel driveway, road, or sidewalk, move deck
engagement switch into DISENGAGE and raise
mower housing to its highest level. This will prevent
loose sand, rocks, and other debris from being thrown
by the whirling blades.
20. Do not touch engine or muffler while engine
is running or soon after it is stopped. These areas
could be hot enough to cause a burn.
21. Before leaving the operator's position on the seat,
or leaving rider unattended, shift transmission into
NEUTRAL, apply parking brake, move deck engage-
ment switch to OFF, and shut OFF engine.
22. Use only the drawbar hitch point at rear of chassis
to pull atrailer or cart. Limit loads to those that can be
controlled safely. Be very careful when backing and
turning: Make wide turns with trailer attached. Turn-
ing too sharp could damage trailer or vehicle.
MAINTENANCE
23. Disconnect high tension wire from spark plug to
prevent accidental starting of the engine when servic-
ing, adjusting or storing the machine.
24. If rider and mower has to be tipped to perform
maintenance or an adjustment, drain gasoline from
fuel tank, oil from crankcase, and remove battery.
Rider is not designed to stand on rear end.
25. Perform only those maintenance instructions
described in this manual. If major repairs are ever
needed or assistance is desired, contact an Author-
ized Toro Dealer.
26. To reduce potential fire hazard, keep the engine
free of excessive grease, grass, leaves and accumu-
lations of dirt.
27. Be sure machine is in safe operating condition by
keeping nuts, bolts and screws tight. Check the blade
mounting nuts frequently to be sure they are tighten-
ed to specification.
28. If the engine must be running to perform a
maintenance adjustment, keep hands, feet, clothing
and other parts of the body away from the cutting
unit blades and other moving parts.
29. Do not overspeed the engine by changing
governor settings. To be sure of safety and accuracy,
have an Authorized TORO Dealer check maximum
engine speed (3200 RPM) with a tachometer.
30. Engine must be shut off before checking oil
or adding oil to the crankcase.
31. To ensure optimum performance and safety,
always purchase genuine TORO replacement parts
and accessories to keep the Toro all TORO. NEVER
USE “WILL-FIT” REPLACEMENT PARTS AND
ACCESSORIES MADE BY OTHER MANUFAC-
TURERS. Look for the TORO logo to assure
genuineness. Using unapproved replacment parts
and accessories could void the warranty of The
Toro Company.

BEFORE OPERATING
ACTIVATING AND CHARGING BATTERY
(12 Volt)
Tools Required: 3 to 4 Amp Battery Charger.
Since the battery for the rider is not filled with
electrolyte or activated, the battery must be removed
from the machine so it can be filled with electrolyte
and charged. Bulk electrolyte with 1.260 specific
gravity must be purchased from a local battery supply
outlet. Remove the battery and activate it as follows:
1. Tip the seat forward exposing battery (Fig. 4).
2. Remove wing nut securing battery hold downs to
rider chassis. (Fig. 4).
8
A CAUTION
Wear safety goggles and rubber gloves
when working with electrolyte. Charge
the battery in a well ventilated place so
gases produced while charging can dis-
sipate. Since the gases are explosive,
keep open flame and electrical spark
away from the battery; do not smoke.
Nausea may result if the gases are in-
haled. Unplug charger from electrical
outlet before connecting or disconnect-
ing charger leads from battery posts.

7. Leave filler caps off and connect a 3 to 4 amp
battery charger to the battery posts. Charge the
battery at a rate of 4 amperes or less for 4 hours.
8. When battery is charged, disconnect charger
from electrical outlet and then from battery posts.
9. Slowly add electrolyte to each cell until level is up
to fill ring. Install filler caps.
IMPORTANT: Do not overfill battery. Electrolyte
will overflow onto other parts of the machine and
severe corrosion and deterioration will result.
10. Install the battery with the battery vent tube
toward the rear. Reconnect vent tube.
11. Reinstall battery hold downs.
12. Install the positive cable to the positive (+)
terminal and the negative cable (black) to the

CHECK CRANKCASE OIL LEVEL
The rider is shipped from the factory with oil in the
crankcase. However, check the oil level in the
crankcase prior to starting the engine.
1. Place rider on a level surface to assure an
accurate oil level reading. Ensure the oil drain plug is
securely tightened (Fig. 7).
Figure 7

BEFORE OPERATING
2. Unscrew and remove the dipstick from the oil fill
tube (Fig. 8).
Figure 8
1. Dipstick
3. Ifoillevelislow, insert afunnel into the tube and
slowly add engine oil into the crankcase. Use a high
quality detergent oil classified “For Service SC, SD,
SE or MS". Oil viscosity (weight) must be selected
according to anticipated ambient temperature,
A. Above +40° F (4° C) — Use SAE 30; 10W-30
as a substitute.
B. Below +40° F (4° C) — Use SAE 5W-20 or
5W-30; SAE 10 or 10W-30 as substitutes.
C. Below 0° F (-18° C) — Use SAE 10 or 10W-
30 diluted 10% with kerosene.
Note: Avoid premature engine failure by insuring the
funnel used is clean so contaminents are not intro-
duced into the crankcase. Wipe any oil spilled, so it
will not cause dirt to collect on the engine.
4. Insure the oil level is to the full mark on the
dipstick when it is fully installed. Do not overfill or
engine damage may result.
5. Insertthedipstick andturn it clockwise to secure
it in the fill tube.
Note: Check the oil level every 5 operating hours or
each time rider is used. Initially, drain the oil and
replace it after the first 5 hours of operation to
remove the contaminents produced by normal
engine break-in; thereafter, under normal condi-
tions, change oil after 25 hours of operation. Change
the oil more frequently when the engine is operated
in dusty or dirty conditions.

FILL FUEL TANK WITH GASOLINE
A DANGER
Because gasoline is flammable, caution
must be used when storing or handling
it. Do not fill fuel tank while engine is
running, hot or when machine is in an
enclosed area. Vapors may build up and
be ignited by a spark or flame source
many feet away. DO NOT SMOKE while
filling the fuel tank to prevent the
possibility of an explosion. Always fill
fuel tank outside and wipe up any spilled
gasoline before starting engine. Use a
funnel or spout to prevent spilling
gasoline, and fill tank to about 1/2 inch
(12.7 mm) from top of tank, not the filler
neck. Store gasoline in a clean safety-
approved container and keep the cap in
place on the container. Keep gasoline in
a cool, well-ventilated place; never in an
enclosed area such as a hot storage
shed. To assure volatility, do not buy
more than a 30 day supply of gasoline.
Gasoline is a fuel for interal combustion
engines; therefore, do not use it for any
other purpose. Since many children like
the smell of gas, keep it out of their reach
because the fumes are explosive and
dangerous to inhale.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
GRASS DEFLECTOR
AA...
The grass deflector and toe bar is a safety
device that routes discharged material
down toward the turf; therefore, do not
remove deflector from mower housing.
If the deflector is ever damaged, replace
it. Without the deflector or complete
grass catcher assembly mounted in place,
discharged material could cause personal
injury.
OPERATING PROCEDURE
1. Move deck engagement switch into DIS-
ENGAGE.
2. Start the engine: refer to Starting/Stopping
Instructions, page 12.
IMPORTANT: When rider is used for the first
time, operate the transmission in all gears to assure
that drive system is functioning correctly, and be-
come familiar with the controls and operating
characteristics. Never shift without first depressing
the clutch pedal or transmission damage could
result.
3. Depress clutch pedal and shift transmission into a
low gear. Then release pedal slowly until traction
drive engages. Do not downshift into a lower gear
without first slowing down or transmission damage
could occur.
IMPORTANT: Do not operate machine with
foot resting on either brake or clutch pedal or
mechanical damage can occur.
IMPORTANT: To avoid a jerky start and putting a
heavy load on the transmissions, release clutch
pedal slowly. If shifting into reverse gear is difficult,
let out clutch pedal slowly while maintaining a
slight rearward pressure on gear shift. Do not
force the gear shift because damage may result.
Should you encounter a jerking or grabbing condi-
tion during operation, contact your local Author-
ized TORO Service Dealer for assistance.
A WARNING
To avoid loss of control, slow down
when turning, backing and changing
direction. Before backing up, move deck
engagement switch into DISENGAGE.
Do not mow in reverse unless absolutely
necessary and then only after careful
observation of the entire area behind the
mower.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
4. Toengage blades for cutting, move height-of-cut
control to the desired setting, then pull out and up on
deck engagement switch.
5. To stop the engine, in sequence, depress clutch
and brake pedals, move throttle control to SLOW,
deck engagement switch into DISENGAGE, gear
shift into neutral, engage parking brake, and rotate
key to OFF position.
IMPORTANT: Never leave the deck engagement
switch in the engaged position when the engine is
not running. Doing so with the ignition switch ON
will discharge the tractor battery.
Note: Remove the ignition key and store it in a
memorable place between operating periods.
GRASS CUTTING TIPS
1. When the rider is used to cut a lawn for the
first time, cut grass slightly longer than normal to
assure that cutting width of mower housing will
not cause scalping, which could result from severe
undulations of the ground. In general, however,
the cutting height used in the past is probably the
best one to use.
2. If the grass is ever allowed to grow slightly
longer than normal, or if it contains a high degree
of moisture, raise cutting height higher than usual
and cut the grass at this setting. Next, cut the
grass again using the lower, normal setting. This
method of cutting long grass results in an even
distribution of clippings and an acceptable quality-
of-cut.
3. Very long or extremely wet grass can be cut, but
specific operating techniques must be used. Start by
setting height-of-cut in Position #6. Using 1st gear
and maximum throttle speed, move into the grass and
cut a swath that is only half as wide as the mower
housing. Direct grass clippings toward area that was
cut previously. Stop forward movement occasionally
to allow discharge area to clear itself. Cutting too
much grass may clog the mower housing and dis-
charge area. If mower housing does clog, shut engine
off, disengage blades and remove the obstruction
with a stick.
A DANGER
Before removing obstruction from mower
housing, move deck engagement switch
into DISENGAGE, depress clutch and
brake pedals, shift into neutral, turn
ignition key to OFF position and set
parking brake. Remove wire from spark
plug to prevent possibility of accidental
starting.
4. When mowing, operate engine at full throttle.
This maintains proper blade speed and air flow
to facilitate discharge of clippings. Mowing with a
lower rpm causes the blades to tear the grass,
resulting in poor lawn appearance. Lower rpm also
reduces alternator charging efficiency which may
affect battery performance.

A. Position rider on level surface.
B. Clean the area around oil dipstick so
foreign matter cannot enter filler hole when
dipstick is removed.
C. Unscrew dipstick and wipe oil off.
D. Screw dipstick fully in to filler neck: then
remove it and check oil level on dipstick. If
level is low, add only enough oil to raise level
to FULL mark. Do not overfill or engine
damage may result.
E. Screw dipstick back into filler neck.
2. Change oil after first 5 hours of operation;
every 25 hours thereafter. Change oil more fre-
quently when operating conditions are extremely
dusty or dirty.
To change oil:
A. Position rider on level surface. Start and run
engine for a period to warm the oil.

ing hose clamp and remove filter.
4. Install the new filter with arrow on the filter body
pointing towards the carburetor. Reinstall clamps.
5. Open fuel shut-off valve fully.
REPLACING SPARK PLUG
Tools Required: Spark Plug Socket, Spark Plug
Gapping Tool, and Clean Rag.
Since air gap between center and side electrodes of
the spark plug increases gradually during normal
operation of the engine, check condition of
electrodes after every 25 operating hours. Recom-
mended air gap is 0.030 of an inch (0.762 mm).
Correct spark plug to use is:
Champion RCJ-8 or Autolite AR7N.
Note: The spark plug usually lasts a long time;
however, the plug should be removed and checked
whenever the engine malfunctions.
1. Clean area around spark plug so foreign matter
cannot fall into cylinder when spark plug is re-
moved.
2. Pull high tension wire off spark plug and re-
move plug from cylinder head.
3. Check condition of side electrode, center
electrode, and center electrode insulator to assure
there is no damage.
IMPORTANT: A cracked, fouled, dirty or defec-
tive spark plug must be replaced. Do not sand
blast, scrape, or clean electrodes by using a wire
brush because grit may eventually release from the
plug and fall into the cylinder. The result is usually
a damaged engine.
5. Set air gap between center and side electrodes
at 0.030 of an inch (0.762 mm) (Fig. 21). Install
correctly gapped spark plug w/gasket seal, and
tighten plug to 15 ft-lb (20.4 N-m). If torque
wrench is not used, tighten plug firmly.
6. Push high tension wire onto spark plug but do
not leave key in the ignition. This will prevent ac-
cidental starting when mower is being stored be-
tween use periods. Keep key in memorable place
so It is not lost.

ADJUSTING CARBURETOR
Tools Required: Medium Blade Screwdriver
The carburetor has been set at the factory, but an
occasional adjustment may be required. How-
ever, do not make unnecessary carburetor adjust-
ments because factory settings are usually cor-
rect. An adjustment may be required to com-
pensate for differences in fuel, temperature and
altitude.
IMPORTANT: Before the carburetor is adjusted,
throttle control must be checked for proper
operation: refer to Adjusting Throttle/Choke
Control, page 18.

IMPORTANT: Do not close the needle valve too
tight because the valve and seat in carburetor will
likely be damaged.
2. Rotate — open — the needle valve 2 turns
counterclockwise (Fig. 23).
Note: The needle valve setting is an approximate;
however, the setting will allow engine to be started
so carburetor can be fine tuned — steps 3-9.
A WARNING
Engine must be running so final ad-
justment of the carburetor can be per-
formed. To guard against possible per-
sonal injury, move deck engagement
switch into DISENGAGE detent, shift
into neutral, and engage parking brake.
Keep hands, feet, face, and other parts
of the body away from the cutter blade,
underside of mower housing, discharge
area, and any rotating engine parts.
3. Start engine and let it warm up for approxi-
mately two minutes. Next, move throttle control
into FAST detent.
IMPORTANT: A clean air cleaner must be installed
on the engine whenever high speed is being ad-
justed. The air cleaner mounting screw must also
be installed when engine is run.
4. Rotate needle valve (Fig. 23) clockwise, 1/8
turn at a time, until engine starts to lose speed. Let
engine react to each 1/8 turn setting.
5. Rotate needle valve (Fig. 23) counterclockwise
— out — 1/8 turn at a time, until engine first runs
rough. Let engine react to each 1/8 turn setting.
6. Rotate needle valve (Fig. 23) clockwise — in —
very slowly until engine starts to run smoothly.
This setting, under no load, may be slightly rich;
however; the slightly rich setting will assure proper
operation when engine is under load.
7. Move throttle control backward so engine idles.
If engine stalls, rotate idle adjusting screw until
engine speed increases (1750 rpm).
Note: Rotate idle adjusting screw clockwise to
Increase idle rpm. By contrast, rotate idle adjusting
screw counterclockwise to decrease idle rpm.
8. Turn idle valve in (lean) and out (rich) slowly
until engine idles smoothly.

MAINTENANCE
9. Check carburetor adjustment by quickly
moving throttle control from SLOW to FAST. En-
gine speed should increase without hesitation. If
engine tends to stall or die out, rotate needle valve
1/8 turn counterclockwise until engine accelerates
smoothly.
10. After carburetor is adjusted, shut engine off.
If mower will not be used immediately, remove key
from switch to prevent possibility of accidental
starting. Keep key in a memorable place so it is
not lost accidentally.

blade (Fig. 26C). Eventually, a piece of
the blade may break off and be thrown
from under the housing, possibly result-
ing in serious injury to yourself or by-
stander.
Note: Since lock nut is tightened at the factory, it
may be difficult to remove the nut. If nut cannot
be removed, contact an Authorized TORO Service
Dealer for assistance.
5. Using a file, sharpen cutting edge at both ends
of the blade (Fig. 27). File only top side of blade,
not the bottom side.

6. Check balance of blade by putting it on a
blade balancer. (An inexpensive balancer can be
purchased at a hardware store). A balanced blade
will stay in a horizontal position on the balancer.
By contrast, a blade that is not balanced will
settle to the heavy side. If blade is not balanced,
file more material off cutting edge of the blade.
Continue to file and check the blade until it is
balanced.
7. In sequence, install blade, anti-scalp cup and
locknut (Fig. 25). Tighten locknut to 50-60 ft/lb
(68-81 N-m).
IMPORTANT: Make sure blade sail is facing top of
mower housing and cutting edge of blade is away
from top of mower housing (Fig. 25). While lock
nut is tightened, move blade slightly so it seats
between sides of blade retainer.
8. Mount the cutting unit to the rider. Refer to Install
Cutting Unit, below, for proper procedures.
INSTALL CUTTING DECK
Tools Required: None.
1. Remove (4) clevis pins and cotter pins from deck
hanger brackets on cutting deck.
2. Insure height-of-cut lever is in the highest height
setting.
3. Lock parking brake, and slide deck under rider.
4. Position the cutting deck so the hanger bars bisect
the deck hanger brackets on each side of deck. Lower
the height-of-cut lever to its lowest setting.
A CAUTION
Suspension bars are spring loaded. Use
caution when installing deck.
5. Route belt around deck pulley and engine pulley.
6. Starting with the front, pull down on each hanger
bar while lifting deck enough to install the clevis pins
into the bracket holes. Secure with cotter pins.
7. With washer, spacer and spring installed on deck
tension rod, insert front end of rod into bracket on
deck and rear end onto post on rider frame. Secure
rear end on post with a washer and cotter pin (Fig. 28).

1. To tension belt, tighten front jam nuts on deck
tension rods equally until springs are compressed to a
length 3/16" longer than spacers inside of springs
(Fig. 29). Secure rear jamnuts.
Figure 29
I. Deck tension rod 2. Deck bracket
Note: Check position of tension rods. Both rods are to
extend equally through deck brackets within 1/4" per
side in order to prevent binding on hanger bars. If an
adjustment is required, readjust jam nuts to equalize
rods.
2. Check position of both belt guides. Guides should
be positioned so rod edges are approximately .10 inch
from back side of each belt.
CLEANING UNDERSIDE OF MOWER HOUSING
Tools Required: Wooden scraper, garden hose and
paste wax.
To assure a good quality-of-cut and efficient grass
bagging, underside of mower housing and inside
of discharge area must be kept clean. Whenever the
mower is removed, clean out debris with a scraper
and hose and apply a coat of paste wax on inside
of mower housing and grass deflector. This will
retard corrosion and prevent grass and dirt from
sticking on inside of housing.
22
REPLACING BLADE SPINDLE DRIVE BELT
The blade drive belt, tensioned by the spring loaded
idler, is very durable. However, after many hours of
use, the belt will show signs of wear. Signs of a worn
belt are: squealing when belt is rotating, blades
slipping when cutting grass, frayed edges, burn
marks and cracks. Replace the belt if any of these
conditions are evident.
Tools Required: Medium Blade Screwdriver.
1. Remove the cutting deck. Refer to Removing
Cutting Deck, page 19.
2. Remove the screws securing belt shields to deck
and remove shields (Fig. 30).

CHECKING SAFETY INTERLOCK SYSTEM
The purpose of the safety interlock system is to
prevent the engine from cranking or starting unless
the operator is on the seat, the transmission shifted
into neutral and the cutting unit deck engagement
switch is in the Disengage position. In addition, the
engine will stop if the operator gets off the seat when
the deck engagement switch is engaged or trans-
missions are in gear. To assure interlock system is
functioning correctly, check it before each use of the
rider. Have the safety interlock switches checked by
an Authorized TORO Service Dealer every two years
to assure safe operation of the rider.
1. Sit on seat and move shift control into neutral
position. Engage the parking brake to prevent move-
ment of the rider.
2. Move deck engagement switch to the ENGAGE
position. Rotate the ignition key to START. Engine
should not crank. If engine cranks, the interlock
system is malfunctioning and it must be repaired by
an Authorized TORO Service Dealer. If engine does
not crank, proceed to step 3.
3. Move deck engagement switch to DISENGAGE
position, push clutch in and place shift control into
one of the gear selections. Rotate the ignition key to
START. Engine should not crank; but if it does, the
interlock system is malfunctioning and it must be
repaired by an Authorized TORO Service Dealer. If
engine does not crank, proceed to step 4.
4. Move shift control into neutral and deck engage-
ment switch to DISENGAGE position. Engage the
parking brake to prevent movement of the rider.
Rotate ignition key to START position and start
engine. Place the deck engagement switch in
ENGAGE position and carefully raise off the seat: the
engine should stop running. If engine does not stop
running, shut engine off and have interlock system
repaired by an Authorized TORO Service Dealer. If
engine shuts off when you raised off seat, the
interlock system is functioning correctly.
Aone
Do not operate the rider if the interlock
system is malfunctioning because it is a
safety device, designed for protection.

BATTERY CHARGING SYSTEM
An AGC 10 Amp Fuse is incorporated in the charging
circuit as a protective device against alternator
damage caused by possible “short-outs™ in the wiring
harness. If the battery is fully charged, but fails to
28
crank the engine, have the electrical system checked
by an Authorized TORO Service Dealer.
PREPARING MOWER FOR STORAGE
1. Drain gasoline from fuel tank and fuel line:
refer to Fuel Filter Replacement, page 17. Next,
start engine and let it run at idle speed until it
stops and all gasoline is used. Replace the fuel
filter.
Note: All gasoline must be expended to prevent
gum-like varnish deposits from forming in the
carburetor, fuel line, and fuel tank. Such deposits,
if allowed to form, will cause starting problems
and poor engine operation.
2. Pull high tension wire off spark plug and clean
area around the plug so foreign matter cannot fall
into cylinder when plug is removed. Next, remove
plug from cylinder head and pour two tablespoons
of engine oil into spark plug hole. Rotate engine
by hand slowly to distribute oil on inside of cylin-
der. Then reinstall spark plug and tighten it to
15 ft-lb (20.4 N-m). If torque wrench is not used,
tighten plug firmly. DO NOT INSTALL HIGH
TENSION WIRE ON SPARK PLUG.
3. Drain oil from crankcase and refill with proper
viscosity oil: refer to Changing Crankcase Oil,
page 17.
4. Clean dirt and chaff from outside of cylinder,
cylinder head fins, and blower housing. Also,
remove grass clippings, dirt, and grime from external
parts of rider, engine, shrouding, and top of mower
housing.
5. Clean underside of mower housing: refer to
Cleaning Underside of Mower Housing, page 22.
6. Check condition of blades: refer to Servicing
Cutter Blades, page 20.
7. Check and tighten all cap screws, bolts, screws,
nuts, and mating parts. If any part is damaged,
repair or replace it.
8. Lubricate wheels and spindles with grease: refer
to Grease Front Axle Spindles and Wheels, page 15.
9. Check air cleaner element: refer to Servicing
Air Cleaner, page 16.
10. Touch up all rusted or chipped paint surfaces.
Make sure to sand affected area before painting.
Note: TORO Re-Kote “touch-up” paint is available
from any Authorized TORO Service Dealer. The
spray paint dries in minutes to a glossy, factory-
finish.
MAINTENANCE
11. Remove the battery from the machine, recharge
it and store it in a cool, dry place. Recharge it
every 30 days to prevent it from discharging. Refer
to Activating and Charging Battery, page 8.
IMPORTANT: Improper storage or failure to
recharge may cause battery failure.
12. Place blocks under the front and rear axles to
raise the wheels off floor and prevent tire deterior-
ation.
13. Store the rider in a clean, dry place. Remove key
from ignition switch and keep it in a memorable place.
Cover the rider to protect it and keep it clean.
