SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
This safety alert symbol
means ARNING or
CAUTION — PERSONAL
SAFETY INSTRUCTION
— Read the instruction
because it has to do with
safety. Failure to comply
with the instruction may result in personal
injury.
The TORO LAWN TRACTOR was tested and veri-
fied by an independent laboratory for compliance
with the B71.1 1980 specifications of the American
National Standards Institute. However, improper
use or maintenance by the operator or owner of
the mower can still result in injury. To reduce the
potential for injury, follow these safety in-
structions.
BEFORE OPERATING
1. Read and understand the contents of this
manual before starting and operating the tractor
and mower. Become familiar with all controls, and
know how to stop the engine and machine quickly.
NEVER ALLOW CHILDREN TO OPERATE THE
TRACTOR.
2. Keep everyone, especially children and pets,
away from the area of operation. Remove sticks,
stones, wire, and any other debris or objects which
might be picked up and thrown by the mower.
3. 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 frequently check and tighten any
loose nuts, bolts and screws.
4. Wear long pants and substantial shoes. Do not
operate the tractor while barefoot, wearing sandals,
tennis shoes, sneakers, or shorts.
5. Fill fuel tank with gasoline before starting the
engine. Avoid spilling any gasoline. Since gasoline
is highly flammable, handle it carefully.
A. Use an approved gasoline container.
B. Fill tractor fuel tank outdoors. To prevent
a potential hazard when filling tank, engine
must be cool and not running.
C. Wipe up any gasoline spills, and install
gasoline container cap and tractor fuel
tank cap before starting engine.
D. Do not run engine indoors without adequate
ventilation. Exhaust fumes are dangerous
and can be deadly.
6. Before attempting to start engine, shift into
neutral, move deck engagement switch into DIS-
ENGAGE position and lock parking brake. Engine
will not start unless gear shift is in neutral, deck
engagement switch is in DISENGAGE position,
and the operator is on the vehicle seat.
7. Assure interlock system is functioning correct-
ly before each use of the tractor. Have all safety
related components checked and safety inter-
lock switches replaced by an Authorized TORO
Service Dealer every two years to assure safe
operation of the tractor.
WHILE OPERATING
8. Never carry passengers on the tractor.
9. Keep people and pets a safe distance away from
the tractor and the area of operation.
10. Start engine when parking brake is set, blade is
disengaged, and transmission is in neutral.
11. Using a riding mower demands attention; there-
fore, mow only in daylight or when there is good
artificial light. Stay alert for holes in the terrain
and other hidden hazards. To prevent tipping or
loss of control, do not drive close to a ditch or
creek.
12. Cut steep 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 sharp turns. Extreme caution must be used
when changing direction on slopes. If a steep hill
must be ascended, back the tractor up the hill and
drive forward when descending.
13. Watch out for traffic when crossing or near
roads. Always yield the right-of-way.
14. Keep face, hands, feet, or any other part of the
body and clothing away from concealed, moving,
or rotating parts such as the cutter blade, discharge
area, wheels, belts, and engine. Always sit on the
seat while operating the tractor and mower,
15. During operation the grass deflector or com-
plete rear grass catcher assembly must be installed
on mower housing and tractor. Move deck en-
gagement switch into DISENGAGE, shift into
neutral, set parking 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.
16. When driving from one area to another, crossing
a driveway, road, or sidewalk, move deck en-
gagement switch into DISENGAGE and raise
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
mower housing to its highest level. This will
prevent loose sand, rocks, and other debris from
being thrown by the whirling blade.
17.Do not touch engine, muffler or muffler
shields while it is running or soon after jt is
stopped, because the engine and muffler com-
ponents may be hot enough to cause a burn.
18. Use only the drawbar hitch point at rear of
chassis to pull the lightweight cart that is sold as an
accessory. Limit loads to those that can be con-
trolled safely. Be very careful when backing and
turning: Never turn sharply, |
19. Before leaving the operator's position — on the
seat — or leaving tractor unattended, shift trans-
mission into NEUTRAL, apply parking brake, move
deck engagement switch into DISENGAGE, rotate
ignition key to OFF, and remove key from switch.
20. If the blade strikes a solid object or mower
vibrates abnormally, shift transmission into neutral,
set parking brake, move deck engagement switch
into DISENGAGE, rotate ignition key to OFF,
and remove key from switch. Disconnect high
tension wire from spark plug, and keep wire away
from the plug to prevent possibility of accidental
starting. Check tractor and mower for possible
damage, bent blade or other parts. Make all
repairs before restarting the engine and operating
the mower.
MAINTAINING MOWER
21. Before starting the tractor, or performing any
maintenance service and adjustment, shift trans.
mission into neutral, set parking brake, move deck
engagement switch into DISENGAGE, rotate
ignition key to OFF and remove key from switch.
Keep the key in a memorable place. Also dis-
connect high tension wire from spark plug to
prevent possibility of accidental starting.
22. If major repairs are ever needed or assistance
Is desired, contact an Authorized TORO Service
Dealer.
23. If tractor and mower must be tipped to perform
maintenance or an adjustment, drain gasoline from
fuel tank and oil from crankcase and remove the
battery.
24. Keep tractor and mower housing in safe operat-
ing condition by having nuts, bolts, and screws
tight. Check the blade mounting nut frequently to
make sure the nut is tight (50-60 ft-Ib: 63-81 N-m).
25. To reduce potential fire hazard, make sure
engine, engine compartment, transmission and
brake areas are free of excessive grease, grass,
leaves and dirt.
26. Check all components of optional grass catcher,
including discharge chute and duct, for wear,
damage or deterioration and replace if necessary
with genuine TORO parts.
27. Allow engine to cool before storing tractor in
any enclosure such as a garage or storage shed. Make
sure the tractor fuel tank is empty if machine is to
be stored in excess of 30 days. Do not store
tractor near any open flame or where gasoline
fumes may be ignited by a spark. Always store
gasoline in a safety-approved, red metal container.
28. Do not overspeed the engine by changing
governor settings. Recommended engine speed is
3400 rpm. To assure safety and accuracy, have an
Authorized TORO Service Dealer check maximum
engine speed (3400 rpm) with a tachometer.
29. At the time of manufacture, the tractor con-
formed to safety standards in effect for lawn
tractors. Therefore, to assure optimum perform-
ance and safety, purchase genuine TORO replace-
ment parts and accessories to keep the Toro all
TORO. NEVER USE "WILL-FIT" REPLACEMENT
PARTS AND ACCESSORIES. The TORO logo
assures genuine TORO replacement parts and
accessories.

2. Remove filler caps from battery and slowly
fill each cell until electrolyte is just above the
plates. To obtain best results, let battery set for
20 minutes. Add electrolyte to the maximum
capacity.
3. 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.
4. When battery is charged, disconnect charger
from electrical outlet and battery posts.
5. 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.
6. Install the battery into the battery compart-
ment with the terminal posts toward the rear of
the machine,
7. 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 rubber boot over the positive terminal
to prevent possible short-out from occurring
(Fig. 11).
CHECK CRANKCASE OIL LEVEL
The tractor 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 tractor on a level surface to assure accu-
rate oil level reading and open the hood. Ensure the
oil drain plug is securely tightened, Page 16,
(Fig. 22).
2. Unscrew and remove the dipstick from the oil
fill tube (Fig. 12).
Figure 12
3. If oil level is low, insert a funnel 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 tem-
perature.
A. Above +40° F (4° C) — Use SAE 30: 10W-30
and 10W-40 as substitutes.
B. Below +40° F (4° C) — Use SAE bW-20 or
oW-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
introduced 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 js 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 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 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
Tools Required: Clean Rag and Funnel
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) below 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 internal combustion engines; there-
fore, 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.
IMPORTANT: Leaded regular gasoline is recom-
mended. If leaded regular gasoline is not available,
low lead regular gasoline can be used. Do not mix
any oil with the gasoline, and never use premium
gasoline, gasohol, gasoline additives or white gas
because engine damage could result. Capacity of
fuel tank is 7 quarts (6.62 1).
1. Open the hood.
2. Clean area around fuel tank cap so foreign
matter cannot enter tank when cap is removed.
3. Remove cap from fuel tank and fill tank with
leaded-regular gasoline (Fig. 13). Then install fuel
tank cap.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
GRASS DEFLECTOR
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 mou nted 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 tractor 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 while the machine is
moving or without first depressing the clutch pedal
or transmission damage could result.
3. Depress clutch pedal and shift transmission
into 1st gear. Then release pedal slowly until
traction drive engages.
IMPORTANT: To avoid a jerky start and putting a
heavy load on the transmission, release clutch pedal
slowly. If shifting into reverse gear is difficult, jog
clutch pedal in and out to get gears to mesh. Do
not force the gear shift because damage may re-
sult. Should you encounter a jerking or grabbing
condition during operation, contact your local
Authorized TORO Service Dealer for assistance.
A WARNING
To avoid loss of control, always come to a
complete stop before shifting gears, and
slow down when turning, backing and
changing direction. Look behind the
tractor to assure area is clear before
backing.
4. To engage blade 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 tractor 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 the highest po-
sition. 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 dis-
charge area to clear itself. Cutting too much grass
may clog the mower housing and discharge area.
If mower housing does clog, shut engine off, dis-
engage blade 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 high tension
wire from spark plug to prevent possi-
bility 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 blade to tear the grass,
resulting in poor lawn appearance. Lower rpm also
reduces alternator charging efficiency which may
affect battery performance.

gasoline.
A. Install the new filter with arrow on the filter
body pointing towards the carburetor.
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. Open the hood.
2 Clean area around spark plug so foreign matter
cannot fall into cylinder when spark plug is re-
moved.
3. Pull high tension wire off spark plug and re-
move plug from cylinder head.
4. 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. 26). Install
correctly gapped spark plug w/gasket seal, and

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 17.
1. Needle Valve (Fig. 28) — Close valve by gently
rotating it clockwise.

rough. Let engine react 10 each 1/8 turn setting.
6. Rotate needle valve (Fig. 28) 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.
3. Turn idle valve in (lean) and out (rich) slowly
until engine idles smoothly.

A CAUTION
If blade is allowed to wear, a slot will
form between the sail and flat part of
the blade (Fig. 32C). Eventually, a piece
of the blade may break off and be
thrown from under the housing, possibly
resulting in serious injury to yourself
or bystander,
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.

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 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.
9. In sequence, install blade, anti-scalp cup and
locknut (Fig. 31). 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. 31). While lock
nut is tightened, move blade slightly so it seats
between sides of blade retainer.

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 cutter blade drive control is engaged or
transmission is in gear. To assure interlock system
is functioning correctly, check it before each use of
the tractor. Have the safety interlock switches re-
placed by an Authorized TORO Service Dealer
every two years to assure safe operation of the
tractor.
1. Sit on seat and move shift control into neutral
position. Engage the parking brake to prevent
movement of the tractor.
2. Move deck engagement switch (Fig. 46) 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.

movement of the tractor. Rotate ignition key to
START position and start engine. Place the deck
engagement switch in ENGAGE position and care-
fully 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.
