ment be done at a slow speed with attachment disen-
gaged. Continue this practice until operator is thor-
oughly familiar with the controls and has developed
operating skills.
33. Disengage all attachment clutches, set parking
brake and shift into neutral before attempting to start
engine,
34. Disengage power to attachment(s), set parking-
brake and stop engine before leaving operator posi-
tion.
35. Disengage power to attachment(s) and stop en-
gine before making any repairs or adjustments.

ing. Do not mow in reverse unless absolutely neces-
sary and then only after careful observation of the en-
tire area behind the machine.
39. LOOK behind machine to make sure the ares is
Clear before placing the transmission in reverse and
continue looking behind while backing.
SAFE OPERATING REQUIREMENTS
40. Always back up loading ramps and tilt bed trail-
ers.
41. The parking brake is designed to hold machine in
place at rest, with engine off. Parking brake will not
restrain machine with engine running and transmission
engaged.
STABILITY / TIP OVER / TRACTION
42. Know the terrain on which you are operating your
equipment. There are areas on which your equipment
cannot be safely operated.
43. Avoid operating equipment on hillsides, slopes or
rough terrain. DO NOT operate machine on hillsides
or slopes exceeding 15° (27% grade). If safety is in
doubt STAY OFF THE SLOPE.
44. Reduce speed and exercise extreme caution on
slopes above 10° (18% grade) to prevent tipping or
loss of control. Never mow uphill on these slopes —
mow downhill only. If a steep hill must be ascended,
back up the hill, and drive forward down the hill, keep-
ing machine in gear. If necessary to turn on hill, al-
ways turn downhill.
45. Mow up and down the face of slopes greater than
5° (9% grade), never across the face. Be especially
cautious when changing directions on all slopes.
46. Operate your machine smoothly and at a ground
speed slow enough to ensure complete control at all
times. Avoid erratic operation and excessive speed.
47. Sharp turns on any terrain may cause loss of con-
trol. Reduce speed and use caution when making
sharp turns.
48. Do not stop or start suddenly when going uphill or
downhill. Avoid uphill starts. If machine is stopped
going up a slope, turn the attachment off and back
slowly down the slope keeping the machine in gear.
Do not stop or change gears (speed) on slopes.
49. Know the terrain on which you are working. Find
hidden obstacles by walking through and inspecting
the area prior to operating your equipment in that
area. Plainly mark obstacles, such as rocks, ruts or
holes and stay well clear of these obstacles when
operating.
50. While operating, stay alert for holes, rocks or
roots, which may cause damage to equipment or
upset. Keep at least 3 ft. away from drop-offs,
ditches, creeks, culverts, washouts and public high-
ways.
51. Exercise care when mowing around a fixed object
to prevent the equipment or attachment from striking
the object. When mowing, never deliberately run over
any foreign object.
52. Areas wet with dew, rain or snow will be more
slippery than when dry. Areas covered with loose
gravel are more slippery than firm, dry ground. Greater
stopping distances are required in these slippery
areas.
53. Learn to expect changes in operating conditions.
Adding or removing attachments or weight to your
equipment will make your machine perform differently.
Rain, snow, loose gravel, wet grass, etc., change the
tractive conditions of the terrain, requiring changes in
your operating technique, which may include a deci-
sion not to operate on that terrain.
54. Use care when pulling loads or using heavy
equipment.
A. Use only approved drawbar hitch points.
B. Limit loads to those you can safely control.
C. Do not turn sharply. Use care when backing.
D
. Use counterweight(s) or wheel weights when
suggested in operators manual.
ATTACHMENT USE
55. When using attachments never direct discharge of
material toward bystanders nor allow anyone near ve-
hicle while in operation.
56. When using machine with mower:
A. Mow only in daylight or in good artificial light.
B. Never make a cutting height adjustment while
engine is running if operator must dismount to
do so.
C. Shut engine off and wait for all moving parts to
stop before unclogging chute.
D. Check blade mounting bolts for proper tight-
ness at frequent intervals.
57. Keep hands and feet away from rotating blade(s)
underneath mower deck. Never place foot on ground
when mower is engaged or when unit is in motion.
58. DO NOT operate mower attachment without the
chute deflector or complete bagger in place.
59. Exercise care while maneuvering with grass
catcher. Front to rear stability may change.
MAINTENANCE
60. Keep all nuts, bolts, fasteners and screws tight to
be sure equipment is in safe working condition and
check them frequently. Repair or replace worn, dam-
aged, distorted or broken parts as needed.
61. Keep vehicle and attachments in good operating
condition and keep safety devices in place and work-
ing.
SAFE OPERATING REQUIREMENTS
62. Under normal usage, grass catcher bag material
is subject to deterioration and wear. It should be
checked frequently to determine need for bag replace-
ment.
63. Use only genuine Toro Wheel Horse replacement
parts to ensure that original standards are maintained.
64. Shields, deflectors, switches, blade controls and
other safety devices must be in their proper position
and functional.
65. Do not operate without muffler or tamper with the
exhaust system. Damaged mufflers or spark arresters
can create a fire hazard. Periodically inspect and re-
place if necessary.
66. If equipment begins to vibrate abnormally, disen-
gage power to attachments and stop engine at once.
Repair any damage before starting or continuing oper-
ation,
67. Periodically inspect all shafts, levers, friction de-
vices and other moving parts subject to wear. Make
required adjustment or replace these parts if dam-
aged, distorted or broken, or as soon as wear affects
the normal operation of the vehicle or attachment. DO
NOT operate equipment that is not functioning proper-
ly.

BEFORE OPERATING
ACTIVATING AND CHARGING BATTERY
The battery must be removed from the machine so it
can be filled with electrolyte and charged. Bulk elec-
trolyte with 1.260 specific gravity must be purchased
from a local battery supply outlet. Remove the battery
and activate it as follows:
1. Tip seat forward exposing battery.
2. Remove wing nut securing battery hold downs to
rider chassis (Fig. 5).

3. Filler cap
3. Lift up on top battery hold down and pivot rear-
ward.
4. Remove battery from chassis and set it aside.
5. Remove filler caps from battery and slowly fill
each cell until electrolyte is at the add line.

6. Leave filler caps off and connect a 3-4 amp bat-
tery charger to battery posts. Charge battery at a rate
of 4 amperes or less for 4 hours (12 volt).
7. When battery is charged, disconnect charger from
electrical outlet and battery posts.
8. Slowly add electrolyte to each cell until level is up
to the full line. Reinstall filler caps. Once battery is in
service, distilled water only should be added; never
add more electrolyte.
IMPORTANT: Do not overfill battery. Electrolyte will
overflow onto other parts and severe corrosion
and deterioration will result.
9. Install the battery with the terminal posts toward
the rear of the machine and vent tube on left side of
battery, thru hole in frame (Fig. 6).

10. Reinstall battery hold downs.
Be sure battery hold downs do not touch
battery posts during reinstallation of battery.
Contact between battery hold downs and
posts could result in personal injury and/or
damage to the electrical system.
11. Install the positive cable (rubber boot over end) to
the positive (+) terminal and the negative cable
(black) to the negative (-) terminal of the battery and
secure with capscrews and wing nuts. Slide the rub-
ber boot over the positive terminal to prevent a possi-
ble short-out from occurring (Fig. 6).
FILL CRANKCASE WITH OIL
The rider is shipped from the factory without oil in the
crankcase.
1. Place rider on a level surface.
2. Unscrew and remove the dipstick from the oil fill
tube (Fig. 7).
3. Insert a funnel into the tube and slowly add engine
oil into the crankcase. Use a high quality detergent oil
classified “For Service SG”. Qil viscosity (weight)
must be selected according to anticipated ambient
temperature.

A. Above + 40° F (4° C) — Use SAE 30 or 10W-30.
B. 0° to + 40° F (4° C) — Use 10W-30.
C. Below 0° (-18° C) — Use 5W- 20 or 5W-30.
Note: Avoid premature engine failure by ensuring the
funnel used is clean so contaminants are not intro-
duced into the crankcase. Wipe up any oil spilled so it
will not cause dirt to collect on the engine.
4. Ensure the oil level is to the full mark on the dip-
stick when it is fully installed. Do not overfill or engine
damage may result.
5. insert the dipstick and turn 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 re-
place it after the first 5 hours of operation to remove
the contaminants produced by normal engine
break-in; thereafter, under normal conditions, change
oil after every 25 hours of operation. Change the oil
more frequently when the engine is operated in dusty
or dirty conditions.
FILL FUEL TANK WITH GASOLINE
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 spill-
ing gasoline, and fill tank to about 1/2 inch (13
mm) below the filler neck. Store gasoline in a
cool, well-ventilated place; never in an en-
closed area such as a hot storage shed. To
ensure volatility, do not buy more than a 30
day supply of gasoline. Gasoline is a fuel for
internal combustion engines; therefore, do not
use it for any other purpose. Since many chil-
dren like the smell of gas, keep it out of their
reach because the fumes are explosive and
dangerous to inhale.
The Toro Company strongly recommends the use of
clean, fresh UNLEADED gasoline in Toro gasoline
powered products. Unleaded gasoline burns cleaner,
extends engine life, and promotes good starting by
reducing the build-up of combustion chamber depos-
its. Leaded gasoline can be used if unleaded is not
available,
Toro also recommends that Toro Stabilizer/Condi-
tioner be used regularly in all Toro gasoline pow-
ered products during operation and storage sea-
sons. Toro Stabilizer/Conditioner cleans the engine
during operation and prevents gum-like varnish
deposits from forming in the engine during stor-
age.
NOTE: NEVER USE METHANOL., GASOLINE CON-
TAINING METHANOL, GASOHOL CONTAINING
MORE THAN 10% ETHANOL, LEADED PREMIUM
GASOLINE OR WHITE GAS BECAUSE ENGINE
FUEL SYSTEM DAMAGE COULD RESULT.

RECYCLER* RIDER TIPS
RECYCLER® RIDER FEATURES
Your Toro Recycler® rider has a new and completely
different cutting concept. It leaves your lawn with a
bagged look without bagging clippings.
The rider is equipped with special parts (Fig. 12)
which increase your rider's ability to cut and recut
grass clippings, leaves, and other yard debris into tiny
particles which are injected down into the grass.
These parts are:
e Deckring
e Special blade and blade stiffener
e Discharge cover
e Four special “kickers” positioned on the under-
side of the mower deck in strategic positions. (A fifth
kicker is molded into the discharge cover.)
394

2. Discharge cover 5. Blade stiffener

TIPS FOR CUTTING GRASS
Even with the Recycler® rider, you may encounter con-
ditions where it is not possible to incorporate all of the
grass clippings or leaves all of the time into the grass.
Follow these instructions for the best cutting results
and lawn appearance:
® Always use FAST (full) throttle when mowing.
® Maintain a sharp blade throughout the cutting
season. A sharp blade cuts cleanly and without
tearing or shredding the grass blades like a dull
blade. Tearing and shredding causes the grass to
turn brown at the edges which impairs growth and
increases susceptibility to diseases. About every
30 days, remove the wire from the spark plug and
check the cutter blade for sharpness. File down
any nicks on blade to restore its sharp edge.
e Clean any residue from the underside of the rider
housing and kickers after each use. If residue is al-
lowed to build up in rider housing and on Kickers, cut-
ting performance may be unsatisfactory.
e Very long or extremely wet grass can be Cut, but
specific operating techniques must be used. Start by
setting height-of-cut in the highest position. Using 1st
gear and maximum throttie speed, move into the
grass and cut a swath that is only half as wide as the
mower housing. If side discharging, direct grass clip-
pings toward area that was cut previously. Stop for-
ward movement occasionally to allow discharge area
to clear itself. Cutting too much grass may clog the
mower housing and discharge area. If mower housing
does clog, shut engine off, disengage blade and re-
move the obstruction with a stick.
Before removing any obstruction from mower
housing, move blade control into DISENGAGE
detent, depress clutch and brake pedals,
shift into neutral and turn ignition key to OFF
position. Remove wire from spark plug to
prevent the possibility of accidental starting.
e When the rider is used to cut a lawn for the first
time, Cut grass slightly longer than normal to ensure
that cutting height 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.
When cutting grass over six inches tall, you may want
to cut the lawn twice to hide clippings down in the
grass.
e [Ifthe grass is ever allowed to grow slightly longer
than normal, or if it contains a high degree of mois-
ture, 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.
e In the heat of the summer, it is best to cut only
about 1/3 of the grass blade. Cutting below the 3rd
setting is not recommended unless grass is sparse or
it is late fall when grass growth begins to slow down.
e If the cutting width of the rider is wider than the
mower previously used, raise height-of-cut setting one
notch to ensure undulations in turf are not cut too
short.
e MOWING IN EXTREME CONDITIONS — Air is re-
quired to cut and recut grass clippings in rider hous-
ing, so do not set height-of-cut too low or totally sur-
round housing by uncut grass. Always try to have one
side of the rider housing free from uncut grass, allow-
Ing air to be drawn into housing. When making an ini-
tial cut thru center of uncut area, operate rider at a
slower ground speed and back up if rider starts to
clog.
® STOPPING RIDER—If forward motion of rider
has to be stopped while cutting, a clump of grass
clippings may be deposited on lawn. Follow this
procedure for stopping while cutting:
17
RECYCLER' RIDER TIPS
A. With blade engaged, move onto a previously cut
area.
B. Raise deck one or two height-of-cut settings
while driving rider forward and deck is in opera-
tion.
C. Depress clutch and brake pedals, move throttle
control lever to IDLE position, disengage mower
and rotate ignition key to OFF.
e MOW AT PROPER INTERVALS — Under most nor-
mal conditions you'll need to mow approximately ev-
ery 4-5 days. But remember, grass grows at different
rates at different times. This means that in order to
maintain the same height-of-cut, which is a good
practice, you'll need to cut more frequently in early
spring; as the grass growth rate slows in mid summer,
cut only every 8-10 days. If you are unable to mow for
an extended period due to weather conditions or other
reasons, mow first with the height-of-cut at a high
level; then mow again 2-3 days later with a lower
height setting.
e Alternate mowing direction. This helps disperse
clippings over lawn for even fertilization.
e SIDE DISCHARGING OR BAGGING — To side dis-
Charge or use bagging attachment, remove the
wingnut securing the discharge cover to the mower
housing. NEVER REMOVE THE GRASS DEFLEC-
TOR FROM THE MOWER HOUSING.
Never remove the grass deflector (Fig. 12)
from the mower housing. If the discharge cov-
er under the grass deflector is removed in or-
der to side discharge or bag, the grass deflec-
tor routes discharged material down toward
the turf. If the deflector is ever damaged, re-
place it. Without the deflector or complete
grass catcher assembly mounted in place,
discharged material could cause personal in-
jury or blade contact could occur.
18
The Recycler® rider's special features reduce clipping
size, thus decreasing amount of grass to be disposed
of and number of times bagger will have to be emp-
tied.
Note: When bagger is full, mower will begin to inject
clippings down into the grass.
If the lawn appearance is not satisfactory after mow-
Ing, try one of the following:
e Sharpen the blade.
e Raise the height-of-cut setting on your mower.
® Cut your grass more frequently.
e Overlap cutting swaths instead of cutting a full
swath with each pass.
® Mow across the marginal areas a second time.
TIPS FOR CUTTING LEAVES
In the fall, you can cut your leaves up into finely cut
particles and inject the particles down into the grass.
When spring arrives, the leaf particles will have de-
composed and restored valuable nutrients to the soil.
® When cutting is complete, always be sure that
50% of the lawn shows through the finely cut leaf cov-
er. This may require one or more passes over the
leaves.
e If there are more than five inches of leaves on
lawn, raise the deck one or two notches higher. This
makes it easier to feed leaves under mower deck.
e If leaves are not cut up finely enough to be hid-
den down in the grass, make a second pass 90° to
the first pass.
® If you cut up a lot of oak leaves, you might want
to add lime to your grass in the spring. Lime reduces
the acidity of oak leaves.

after every 25 operating hours. Recommended air gap
is 0.030 of an inch (0.762 mm). Correct spark plug to
use is:
Champion RJ -19LM.
Note: The spark plug usually lasts a long time; how-
ever, the plug should be removed and checked when-
ever the engine malfunctions.
1. Clean area around spark plug so foreign matter
cannot fall into cylinder when spark plug is removed.
2. Pull wire off spark plug and remove plug from cyl-
inder head (Fig. 20).
3. Check condition of side electrode, center elec-
trode, and center electrode insulator to ensure there is
no damage.

IMPORTANT: A cracked, fouled, dirty or defective
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 which could damage the
engine.
4. 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).

5. Push wire onto spark plug but do not leave key in
the ignition. This will prevent accidental starting when
mower is being stored between use periods. Keep
key in memorable place so it is not lost.
DRAINING GASOLINE FROM FUEL TANK
ne is highly flammable, drain it
outdoors and make sure engine is cool to
prevent a potential fire hazard. Wipe up any
gasoline that may have spilied. Do not drain
gasoline near any open flame or where gaso-
line fumes may be ignited by a spark. Do not
smoke a cigar, cigarette or pipe when handl-
Since gasoli
ing gasoline.
IMPORTANT: When the rider is tipped, all gasoline
must be drained from the fuel tank.
MAINTENANCE
1. Clean area around fuel tank cap so foreign matter
cannot enter filler hole when cap is removed. Next,
remove Cap from fuel tank.
2. Using a pump-type syphon, drain gasoline into a
clean gas can.
Note: There is no other recommended way to drain
gasoline from the fuel tank, other than by using a
pump-type syphon. An inexpensive syphon can be
purchased at a hardware store.
ADJUSTING THROTTLE/CHOKE CONTROL
To ensure that choke and carburetor-mounted throttle
are operating properly, the throttle control must be ad-
justed correctly. Hard starting may be an indication of
an incorrect adjustment. If throttle control is ever re-
placed, an adjustment is also necessary. Before the
carburetor is adjusted, ensure that throttle control IS
operating properly.
Cause factory settings are usually correct. An adjust-
ment may be required to compensate for differences
in fuel, temperature, altitude and load.
IMPORTANT: Before the carburetor is adjusted,
throttle control must be checked for proper opera-
tion: refer to Adjusting Throttle/Choke Control,
page 23.
1. Gently turn idle mixture valve clockwise until it
just closes (Fig. 23). Turning valve in too far may
cause damage.

MAINTENANCE
6. Release throttle. Engine should accelerate
smoothly. If it does not, carburetor should be read-
justed, usually to a slightly richer mixture.
7. After carburetor is adjusted, shut engine off. If
mower will not be used immediately, remove key from
switch to prevent possibility of accidental starting.
SERVICING CUTTER BLADE
1. Make sure engine is shut off and remove wire
from spark plug.
IMPORTANT: To remove blade from spindle shaft,
the riding mower must be tipped on its rear end.
However, before the unit is tipped, drain all gaso-
line from fuel tank and remove oil from crankcase.
Also remove battery so acid does not spill onto the
rider. (ALL BAGGING ATTACHMENTS MUST BE
REMOVED BEFORE TIPPING UNIT.)
2. Drain gasoline from fuel tank: refer to Draining
Gasoline From Fuel Tank, page 22.
3. Drain oil from crankcase: refer to Changing Crank-
case Oil, page 20.
4. Remove battery from chassis: refer to Activating
and Charging Battery, page 12.
S. Shift transmission into 1st gear and engage park-
ing brake. Tip rider onto its rear end.
6. Grasp end of blade using a rag or thickly padded
glove; then remove blade bolt, washer, blade stiffener
and blade (Fig. 24).
Note: Since blade bolt is tightened to 45-60 ft-Ib
(61-81 N-m) at the factory, it may be difficult to re-
move. If the bolt cannot be removed, contact an Au-
thorized TORO Service Dealer or a “service station”
for assistance.
7. Using a file, sharpen cutting edge at both ends of
the blade (Fig. 25).
Check cutter blade every time rider Is tipped
on end. If blade bolt holding blade is loose,
tighten it to 45-60 ft-Ib (61-81 Nm). If blade or
sail (Fig. 25) at end of blade is worn, eroded or
cracked, replace the blade. Replace the blade
if it is bent or out-of-balance. Always use a
genuine TORO replacement blade to ensure
safety and best performance. NEVER USE A
WILL-FIT REPLACEMENT BLADE.

IMPORTANT: Sharpen top side of the blade and
maintain original cutting angle to ensure a sharp
cutting edge. The blade will remain balanced if
same amount of material is removed from both cut-
ting edges.
8. 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 ina
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.
9. In sequence, install blade, blade stiffener, washer
and blade bolt (Fig. 24). Tighten blade bolt to 45-60
ft-lb (61-81 N-m).
IMPORTANT: Make sure cutting edge of blade is
away from mower housing.
10. Tip rider back to its normal operating position.
11. Fill crankcase with oil: refer to Fill Crankcase With
Oil, page 13.

MAINTENANCE
CLEANING UNDERSIDE OF MOWER HOUSING
To ensure a good quality-of-cut, underside of mower
housing, kickers and inside of grass deflector (if dis-
charge cover has been removed) (Fig. 12) must be
kept clean. Periodical ly apply a coat of paste wax on
inside of mower housing. Wax the grass deflector if
the discharge cover has been removed (Fig.12). This
will retard rust and prevent dirt and grass from sticking
on inside of housing.
1. Make sure engine is shut off. Then pull wire off
spark plug.
IMPORTANT: To clean underside of mower hous-
ing, the riding mower must be tipped on its rear
end. However, before the unit is tipped, drain all
gasoline from fuel tank and oil from crankcase.

ADJUSTING DRIVE CHAIN
The drive chain must be adjusted to maintain 1/8 of an
inch deflection at mid span between transmission and
differential sprockets. Check chain deflection after the
first 5 hours of operation and after every 25 hours of
operation thereafter.
IMPORTANT: If chain is worn, loose or adjusted
incorrectly, chain could come off sprockets, result-
26
ing in no brakes or traction drive. If assistance is
needed, contact your local authorized Toro Dealer.
1. Check the deflection of the drive chain from bot-
tom of rider by lifting up on chain with moderate pres-
sure at mid span (Fig. 29). There should be 1/8 of an
inch (3 mm) deflection (Fig. 29). If deflection is not as
specified, an adjustment is required — steps 2-6.

5. Since differential axle must be parallel to rear of
chassis, measure distance from center of pillow
blocks to rear of chassis (Fig. 29). Difference between
the two measurements must not exceed 1/4 inch
(6 mm) If difference exceeds 1/4 inch (6 mm), differ-
ential axle is not parallel with chassis; therefore left
side must be repositioned to attain desired dimen-
sion. Tighten locknuts securing left pillow block to rid-
er frame.
6. Check the deflection of the drive chain from bot-
tom of rider.
Note: Do not over-tension chain as excess chain dif-
ferential may occur.

CHECKING SAFETY INTERLOCK SYSTEM
The interlock switches in the electrical system prevent
the engine from starting unless the gear shift is in neu-
tral and deck engagement lever is disengaged. In ad-
dition, the engine will stop — because of a seat
switch — if the operator gets off the seat when deck
engagement lever is engaged or gear shift is in gear.
To ensure interlock system is operating correctly,
check it before each use of the rider.
1. Move gear shift into neutral.
2. Move deck engagement lever into ENGAGE. Sit
on the seat and rotate ignition key to START. Engine
should not crank; but if it does, the interlock system is
malfunctioning and it must be repaired by an Autho-
rized TORO Service Dealer. If engine does not crank,
proceed to step 3.
3. Move deck engagement lever into DISENGAGE.
Sit on the seat, depress the brake and clutch pedals,
engage the parking brake and shift into gear. Rotate
ignition key to START. Engine should not crank: but if it
does, the interlock system is malfunctioning and must
be repaired by an Authorized TORO Service Dealer. If
engine does not crank, proceed to step 4.
4. Sit on the seat, move gear shift into neutral, deck
engagement lever into DISENGAGE and ensure park-
ing brake is engaged. Rotate ignition Key to START.
Engine should start and continue to run. Then engage
28
deck engagement lever and carefully raise off the
seat: the engine should stop. 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 the seat, the in-
terlock system is functioning correctly and the rider
can be operated safely.
Do not operate the riding mower if the inter-
lock system is malfunctioning. It is a safety
device, designed to protect the operator.
PREPARING MOWER FOR STORAGE
1. For long term storage, either drain gasoline from
fuel tank or use a fuel additive before storing. To drain
gasoline, refer to Draining Gasoline From Fuel Tank,
page 22. After fuel is drained, start engine and let it
idle until all fuel is consumed and engine stops. Re-
peat the starting procedure two more times to ensure
all gas is removed from the engine. If gasoline is not
drained, gum-like varnish deposits will form and
cause poor engine operation, even starting problems.
Fuel can be left in gas tank only if a fuel additive, such
as Toro’s Stabilizer/Conditioner, is added to gasoline
before storing. Toro’s Stabilizer/Conditioner is a petro-
leum distillate based conditioner/stabilizer. Toro does
not recommend stabilizers with an alcohol base, such
as ethanol, methanol or isopropyl. Use fuel additive in
recommended quantities as specified on container.
Under normal conditions, fuel additives remain effec-
tive in fuel for 6-8 months.
2. Remove wire from spark plug and clean area
around the plug so foreign matter cannot fall into cyl-
inder 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 to distrib-
ute oil on inside of cylinder. Then reinstall spark plug
and tighten it to 15 ft-lb (20.4 N-m). DO NOT REIN-
STALL WIRE ON SPARK PLUG.
3. Drain oil from crankcase: refer to Changing Crank-
case Qil, page 20. However, do not fill crankcase with
oil at this time.
4. Remove battery from chassis: refer to Activating
and Charging Battery, page 12. Remove corrosion
from battery terminal and wipe any grease and dirt off
the battery case. Check level of electrolyte. If level is
low, add distilled water to the affected cell. Fill only to
the FULL line on side of battery. Reinstall filler caps.
MAINTENANCE
5. Clean dirt and chaff from outside of Cylinder, cylin-
der head fins, and blower housing. Also, remove
grass clippings, dirt, and grime from external parts of
rider, engine, shrouding, and top of mower housing.
6. Clean underside of mower housing: refer to Clean-
ing Underside of Mower Housing, page 25.
7. Check condition of blade: refer to Servicing Cutter
Blade, page 24.
8. Check and tighten all cap screws, bolts, screws,
nuts, and mating parts. If any part is damaged, repair
or replace it.
9. Lubricate wheels and spindles with grease: refer
to Grease Front Axle Spindles and Wheels, page 19.
10. Remove dust and dirt from air cleaner element:
refer to Servicing Air Cleaner, page 21.
11. 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
12. Fill crankcase with oil: refer to Fill Crankcase With
Oil, page 13.
13. Install the battery: refer to Activating and Charging
Battery, page 12. Charge battery for 48 hours to en-
sure full charge.
