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 Ameri-
can National Standards Institute. However, im-
proper 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 instructions.
BEFORE OPERATING
1. Read and understand the contents of this
manual before starting and operating the tractor
and mower. Become familiar with the 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 — DO NOT
SMOKE.
A. Use an approved gasoline container.
B. Fill fuel tank outdoors and only when
engine is not running. Engine must be cool
to prevent a potential fire hazard.
C. Wipe up any gasoline that spilled, and install
gasoline container cap and machine fuel
tank cap securely before starting the engine,
D. Do not run engine indoors without adequate
ventilation. Exhaust fumes are dangerous
and can be deadly.
6. 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 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 correctly
before each use of the tractor. Have all safety
related components checked and safety interlock
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, Using a tractor 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 hazzards. To prevent tipping or
loss of control, do not drive close to a ditch or
creek.
10. 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
contro! reduce speed on slopes and when making
sharp turns. Extreme caution must be used when
changing direction on slopes. |f a steep hill must
be ascended. back the tractor up the hill and drive
forward when descending.
11. Watch out for traffic when crossing or near
roads. Always yield the right-of-way.
12. 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.
13. 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.
14. Do not touch engine, muffler or muffler shields
while it is running or soon after it is stopped,
because the engine and muffler components may be
hot enough to cause a burn.
15. 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.
16. Before leaving the operator's position — on the
seat — or leaving tractor unattended, shift trans:

SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
mission into neutral, set parking brake, move deck
engagement switch into DISENGAGE, rotate
ignition key to OFF, and remove key from switch.
17. 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, defective belt or an obstruc-
tion, and a loose blade or other parts. Make all
‘repairs before restarting the engine and operating
the mower.
MAINTAINING MOWER
18. Before storing 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.
19. If major repairs are ever needed or assistance
is desired, contact an Authorized TORO Service
Dealer,
20. 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.
21. Keep tractor and mower housing in safe
operating condition by having nuts, bolts, and
screws tight, Check the blade mounting nut
frequently to make sure the nut is tight
(50-60 ft-1b [68-81 N-ml).
22. To reduce potential fire hazard, make sure
engine, engine compartment, transmission and brake
areas are free of excessive grease, grass, leaves and
dirt. —
23. 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.
24. Do not overspeed the engine by changing gov-
ernor 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.
25. At the time of manufacture, the tractor
conformed to safety standards in effect for lawn
tractors. Therefore, to assure optimum performance
and safety, purchase genuine TORO replacement
parts and accessories to keep the Toro all TORO.

BEFORE OPERATING
ACTIVATING AND CHARGING BATTERY
(12 VOLT)
Tools Required: 3 to 4 Amp Battery Charger.
Since the battery for the tractor is not filled with
electrolyte or activated, the battery, if you have
not already done so, 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 and lift battery out of
compartment (Fig. 10).
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.
Figure 11
10
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 to or discon-
necting charger leads from battery posts.
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

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". Qil viscosity (weight) must be
selected according to anticipated ambient tem-
perature,
e Above +40°F (+4° C) — Use SAE 30: 10W-30
and T0W-40 as substitutes,
* - Below +40% F (+4° C) — Use SAE 5W-20 or
5W-30; SAE 10 or 10W-30 as substitutes.
* 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 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 tractor is used. Initially, drain the
oil and replace it after the first 5 hours operation
to remove the contaminents produced by normal
engine break-in; thereafter, under normal condi-
tions, change oil after every 25 hours 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
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 |).
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. |
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 or low lead regular gasoline (Fig. 14).
Then install fuel tank cap.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
operation, contact your local Authorized Toro
Service Dealer for assistance.
AR aan
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 trac-
tor to assure area is clear before backing.

cut ‚setting, then pull out and up on deck engage-
ment 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, rotate key to OFF position, and
set parking brake.
IMPORTANT: Never leave the deck engagement
switch in the ENGAGED position when the en-
gine is not running. Doing so with the igni-
tion 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 position.
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 discharge area. |f 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 and set
parking brake. Turn ignition key to OFF
position. Remove high tension 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 blade to tear the grass, re-.
sulting in poor lawn appearance. Lower rpm also
reduces alternator charging efficiency which may
affect battery performance.

13. 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 some material off heavy cutting edge end of
blade. Continue to check the blade until it is
balanced.
14. In sequence, install blade, and lock nut
(Fig. 35). Tighten lock nut to 50-60 ft-Ib (68-81

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.

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, because of a seat switch, 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 replaced 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 parking brake to prevent move-
ment of tractor.
2. Move deck engagement switch (Fig. 45) 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 (Fig. 45) and place shift control into one
of the gear selections (Fig. 46). 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.

in the charging circuit as a protective device against
alternator damage caused by possible "'short-outs
in the wiring harness. If the battery lacks power
to crank engine, raise the hood, separate the fuse
block (Fig. 47) and check the fuse. If fuse is de-
fective, replace It. | replacement fuse also fails,

HEADLIGHT CIRCUIT
Power for the headlights on the 11-42 Lawn Tractor
is provided by electric current from the engine
alternator; therefore, the headlights will not
function unless the engine is operating. An
AGC 7-1/2 Amp Euse (Fig. 47) is incorporated in
the headlight circuit as a protective device against
alternator damage caused by possible "short-outs”
in the wiring harness. If the headlights are
inoperative, raise hood, separate fuse block and
check fuse. If fuse is defective, check wiring for
“chort-outs”. If none can be ascertained, contact
your Authorized TORO Service Dealerfor assistance.
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 because 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. 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. 16.
A. Clean dirt and chaff from outside of cylinder,
cylinder head fins, and blower housing. Also, re-
move grass clippings, dirt, and grime from external
parts of tractor, engine, shrouding, and top of
mower housing.
5. Clean underside of mower housing: refer to
Cleaning Underside of Mower Housing, page 21.
6. Check condition of blades: refer to Servicing
Cutter Blade, page 20.
7. Check and tighten all capscrews, bolts, screws,
nuts, and mating parts. If any part is damaged, re-
pair 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.
