FUEL / FIRE PRECAUTIONS
20. Handle gasoline with care. It is highly flammable.
21. Use approved gasoline container. Place contain-
er out of reach of children.
22. Use gasoline only as a fuel — never as a cleaner.
23. Never remove fuel cap or add gasoline to a run-
ning or hot engine, or an engine that has not been
allowed to cool for several minutes after running.
24. Never fill fuel tank indoors. Wipe up spilled gaso-
line.
25. Open doors if engine is run in garage — exhaust
fumes are dangerous. Do not run engine indoors.
26. Do not fill machine with gasoline while smoking
or when near open flame or sparks.
27. Never store equipment with gasoline in the tank
inside a building where fumes may reach an open
flame or spark.
28. Allow engine to cool before storing in any enclo-
sure.
29. To reduce fire hazard, keep engine and attach-
ments free of grass, leaves or excessive grease.
30. Battery acid is a poison and can cause burn.
Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothes and pro-
tect your face, eyes and clothing when working
around the battery.
31. Battery gases can explode. Keep cigarette,
sparks and flames away from battery.
EQUIPMENT USE AND OPERATION
32. It is recommended that first operation of equip-
ment be done at a slow speed with attachment dis-
engaged. Continue this practice until operator is
thoroughly familiar with the controls and has devel-
oped 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.
36. Disengage power to attachment(s) when trans-
porting or not in use.
37. Disengage attachment clutch before attempting
to remove the mower from a hole or other obstruc-
tion.
SAFE OPERATING REQUIREMENTS
38. Disengage power to attachment(s) before back-
ing. Do not mow in reverse unless absolutely neces-
sary and then only after careful observation of the
entire area behind the machine.
39. LOOK behind machine to make sure the area is
clear before placing the machine in reverse and con-
tinue looking behind while backing.
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 trans-
axle 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 hil-
Isides 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,
keeping machine in gear. If necessary to turn on hill,
always turn downhill.
45. Mow up and down the face of slopes greater
than 5° (9% grade), never across the face. Be espe-
cially 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
control. Reduce speed and use caution when mak-
Ing 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 ob-
ject 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 different-
ly. Rain, snow, loose gravel, wet grass, etc., change
the tractive conditions of the terrain, requiring
changes in your operating technique, which may
include a decision 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
vehicie 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.
SAFE OPERATING REQUIREMENTS
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,
damaged, distorted or broken parts as needed.
61. Keep vehicle and attachments in good operating
condition and keep safety devices in place and
working.
62. Under normal usage, grass catcher bag material
is subject to deterioration and wear. It should be
checked frequently to determine need for bag re-
placement.
63. Use only genuine Toro Wheel Horse replacement
parts to ensure that original standards are main-
tained.
64. Shields, deflectors, switches, decals, blade con-
trols 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 ar-
resters can create a fire hazard. Periodically inspect
and replace 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 continu-
ing operation.
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
properly.

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 bat-
tery and activate it as follows:
1. Tip seat forward exposing battery.
2. Remove wing nut securing battery hold downs to
rider chassis (Fig. 4).
Figure 4
1. Wing nut 2. Battery hold downs 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 just above the “LOWER”
fill 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 or distilled water to each
cell until level is just below the “UPPER” fill line. Rein-
stall filler caps. Once battery is in service, distilled
water only should be added; never add more elec-
trolyte.
IMPORTANT: Do not overfill battery. Electrolyte
will overflow onto other parts and severe corro-
sion 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. 5).
Figure 5
1. Vent tube 2. Throttle cable
10. Reinstall battery hold downs.
ÁN WARNING
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 red positive cable (rubber boot over

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. 6).
3. Insert a funnel into the tube and slowly add en-
gine oil into the crankcase, using oil fill chart below.
Use a high quality detergent oil classified “For Ser-
vice SG”. Oil viscosity (weight) must be selected ac-
cording to anticipated ambient temperature.

Note: Avoid premature engine failure by ensuring
the funnel used is clean so contaminants are not in-
troduced into the crankcase. Wipe up any oll 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 en-
gine 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
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 de-
posits. Leaded gasoline can be used if unleaded is
not available.
Toro also recommends that Toro Stabilizer/Condition-
er be used regularly in all Toro gasoline powered
products during operation and storage seasons.
Toro Stabilizer/Conditioner cleans the engine during
operation and prevents gum-—like varnish deposits
from forming in the engine during storage.
12
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. Al-
ways fill fuel tank outside and wipe up any
spilled gasoline before starting engine. Use
a funnel or spout to prevent spilling gaso-
line, 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 children like the smell of gas, keep it
out of their reach because the fumes are
explosive and dangerous to inhale.
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.
DO NOT USE FUEL ADDITIVES OTHER THAN
THOSE MANUFACTURED FOR FUEL STABILIZA-
TION DURING STORAGE SUCH AS TORO’S STA-
BILIZER/CONDITIONER OR A SIMILAR PROD-
UCT. TORO’S STABILIZER/CONDITIONER IS À
PETROLEUM DISTILLATE BASED STABILIZER/
CONDITIONER. TORO DOES NOT RECOMMEND
STABILIZERS WITH AN ALCOHOL BASE SUCH
AS ETHANOL, METHANOL OR ISOPROPYL. STA-
BILIZERS SHOULD NOT BE USED TO TRY TO EN-
HANCE THE POWER OR PERFORMANCE OF MA-
CHINE.
1. Clean area around fuel tank cap so foreign mat-
ter cannot enter tank when cap is removed (Fig. 6).
2. Remove cap from fuel tank and fill tank with un-
leaded gasoline to within 1/2” (13 mm) from top of
tank. Then reinstall fuel tank cap.
3. Wipe up any gasoline that may have spilled.
CHECK TIRE PRESSURE
Check and ensure the tires are inflated to 12 psi

To avoid loss of control, always come to a
complete stop before shifting gears, and slow
down when turning, backing and changing di-
rection. Look behind and down to ensure area
is clear before backing.
3. Depress clutch pedal and shift transaxle into
selected gear. Then release pedal slowly until trac-
tion drive engages.
IMPORTANT: To avoid a jerky start and putting a
heavy load on the transaxle, 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 Au-
thorized TORO Service Dealer for assistance.

control to the desired setting. Place throttle in OPER-
ATE position. Then move deck engagement lever to
ENGAGE position.
5. To stop engine, in sequence, depress clutch and
brake pedals, move throttle control to IDLE, deck
engagement lever into DISENGAGE, gear shift into
neutral, throttle to IDLE, engage parking brake, and
rotate key to OFF position after allowing the engine
to idle a short period.
SIDE DISCHARGING OR BAGGING
To side discharge or use bagging attachment, stop
engine and wait for all moving parts to stop. Then
remove the wingnut securing the discharge cover
(Fig. 11) to the mower housing. NEVER REMOVE
THE GRASS DEFLECTOR FROM THE MOWER
HOUSING (Fig. 11). Save the discharge cover and
wingnut for possible future reinstallation.
If you no longer wish to side discharge or bag clip-
pings, the discharge cover can be reinstalled by se-
curing it the mower housing with the wingnut.
GRASS DEFLECTOR
A WARNING
NEVER remove the grass deflector (Fig. 11)
from the mower housing. If the discharge
cover under the grass deflector is removed
in order to side discharge or bag, the grass
deflector routes discharged material down
toward the turf. If the deflector is ever dam-
aged, replace it. Without the deflector or
complete grass catcher assembly mounted
in place, discharged material could cause
personal injury or blade contact could occur.

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. 11)
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 Deck ring
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.)

RECYCLER" RIDER TIPS
TIPS FOR CUTTING GRASS
Even with the Recycler® rider, you may encounter
conditions 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 cut-
ting results and lawn appearance:
e Always use FAST (full) throttle when mowing.
e Maintain a sharp blade throughout the cutting
season. A sharp blade cuts cleanly and without tear-
ing 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 in-
creases 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,
cutting 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 throttle 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 hous-
ing does clog, shut engine off, disengage blade and
remove the obstruction with a stick.
A DANGER
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 posi-
tion. 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 long-
er 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
16
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 Inthe 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 [f 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,
allowing air to be drawn into housing. When making
an initial cut thru center of uncut area, operate rider
at a slower ground speed and back up if rider starts
to clog.
e 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 pro-
cedure for stopping while cutting:
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
normal conditions you'll need to mow approximately
every 4—5 days. But remember, grass grows at dif-
ferent rates at different times. This means that in or-
der 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 con-
ditions 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
discharge or use bagging attachment, stop the en-
gine and wait for all moving parts to stop. Then re-
move the wingnut securing the discharge cover to
the mower housing. NEVER REMOVE THE GRASS
DEFLECTOR FROM THE MOWER HOUSING.
RECYCLER" RIDER TIPS
A WARNING
Never remove the grass deflector (Fig. 11)
from the mower housing. If the discharge
cover under the grass deflector is removed
in order to side discharge or bag, the grass
deflector routes discharged material down
toward the turf. If the deflector is ever dam-
aged, replace it. Without the deflector or
complete grass catcher assembly mounted
in place, discharged material could cause
personal injury or blade contact could occur.
The Recycler® rider's special features reduce clip-
ping size, thus decreasing amount of grass to be
disposed of and number of times bagger will have to
be emptied.
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.
e (Cut your grass more frequently.
e Overlap cutting swaths instead of cutting a full
swath with each pass.
e 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 particies down into the grass.
When spring arrives, the leaf particles will have de-
composed and restored valuable nutrients to the
soil.
e When cutting is complete, always be sure that
50% of the lawn shows through the finely cut leaf
cover. This may require one or more passes over the
leaves.
e |[f 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.
e [i 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.

CHECK/CHANGE CRANKCASE OIL
1. Check level of oil before starting engine and after
every 5 hours of operation. Maintain oil level at FULL
mark on dipstick.
To check level of oil:
A. Position rider on a 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 into filler neck; then re-
move 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.
20
E. Screw dipstick back into filler neck.
2. Change oil after first 5 hours of operation and
every 25 hours thereafter. Change oil more frequent-
ly when operating conditions are extremely dusty or
dirty.
To change oil:
A. Position rider on a level surface. Start and run
engine for a period to warm the oil.
B. Turn engine off and place drain pan below
drain plug (Fig. 16). Remove drain cap. Allow
all oil to flow into drain pan. Reinstall drain

5. Clean air cleaner body carefully to prevent dirt
from entering carburetor. Remove and discard paper
cartridge.
6. Insert a new paper cartridge into air cleaner
body. Reassemble air cleaner.
IMPORTANT: Petroleum solvents, such as kero-
sene, are not to be used to clean paper cartridge.
They may cause deterioration of the cartridge. DO
NOT OIL CARTRIDGE. DO NOT USE PRESSUR-
IZED AIR TO CLEAN CARTRIDGE.
IMPORTANT: Always operate engine with air
cleaner element in place or engine damage will
result.
REPLACING SPARK PLUG
Since air gap between center and side electrodes of
the spark plug increases gradually during normal
operation of the engine, check condition of elec-
trodes after every 25 operating hours. Recom-
mended air gap is 0.030 of an inch (0.762 mm). Cor-
rect 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
whenever 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
cylinder head (Fig. 18).
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.
Figure 18

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 a memorable place so it is not lost.
DRAINING GASOLINE FROM FUEL TANK
A CAUTION
Since gasoline 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 spilled. Do not drain
gasoline near any open flame or where gas-
oline fumes may be ignited by a spark. Do
not smoke a cigar, cigarette or pipe when
480
handling gasoline.
IMPORTANT: When the rider is tipped, all gaso-
line must be drained from the fuel tank.
1. Clean area around fuel tank cap so foreign mat-
ter 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 adjusted correctly. Hard starting may be an
indication of an incorrect adjustment. If throttle con-
trol is ever replaced, an adjustment is also neces-
sary. Before the carburetor is adjusted, ensure that
throttle control is operating properly.
1. Move throttle control lever to FAST position.
2. The throttle lever should be just touching the
choke link (Fig. 20); if they are not in this position, an
adjustment is necessary:
A. Place remote control lever in OPERATE position.
B. Loosen the throttle cable clamp screw (Fig. 20)
and move the control cable casing and wire until
the throttle lever touches choke link.
C. Tighten the cable clamp screw. Move control to
SLOW then back to FAST to ensure jproper ad-
justment. Repeat procedure if necessary.

ADJUSTING CARBURETOR
The carburetor has been set at the factory, but an
occasional adjustment may be required. However,
do not make unnecessary carburetor adjustments
because factory settings are usually correct. An ad-
justment may be required to compensate for differ-
ences in fuel, temperature, altitude and load.
IMPORTANT: Before the carburetor is adjusted,
throttle control must be checked for proper oper-
ation: refer to Adjusting Throttle/Choke Control,
page 22.
1. Gently turn idle mixture valve clockwise until it
just closes (Fig. 21). Turning valve in too far may
cause damage.

MAINTENANCE
2. Open idle mixture valve one turn counterclock-
wise. This initial adjustment will permit the engine to
be started and warmed up (approximately 5 min-
utes) prior to final adjustment.
3. Start engine and move throttle control to IDLE
position.
A WARNING
6. Grasp end of blade using a rag or thickly
padded glove; then remove blade bolt, curved
washer, biade stiffener and blade (Fig. 22).
Note: Since blade bolt is tightened to 45-60 ft-lb
(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.
Engine must be running so final adjustment of
the carburetor can be performed. To guard
against possible personal injury, move blade
control into DISENGAGE detent, shift into neu-
tral, and engage parking brake. Keep hands,
feet, face, and other parts of the body away
from the cutter blade, underside of mower
| housing and the discharge area.
4. Rotate throttle (Fig. 21) counterclockwise and
hold against idie speed adjusting screw (Fig. 21)
while turning idle speed adjusting screw to obtain
1750 RPM.
5. While still holding throttle against idle speed ad-
justing screw, turn idle mixture valve in (lean) and out
(rich) slowly until engine idles smoothly. Recheck
idle RPM and readjust if required.
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 start-
ing.
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.
Before the unit is tipped, drain all gasoline 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 oll from crankcase: refer to Changing
Crankcase Oil, page 20.
4. Remove battery from chassis: refer to Activating
and Charging Battery, page 11.
5. Shift transaxle into 1st gear and engage parking
brake. Tip rider onto its rear end.
Figure 22
1. Blade 2. Blade bolt & curved washer 3. Blade stiffener
7. Using a file, sharpen cutting edge at both ends
of the blade (Fig. 23).
A WARNING
Check cutter blade every time rider is tipped
on end. If blade bolt holding blade is loose,
tighten it to 45-60 ft-lb (61-81 N-m). If blade or
sail (Fig. 23) 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
cutting edges.
23
MAINTENANCE
8. Check balance of blade by putting it on a blade
balancer. (An inexpensive balancer can be pur-
chased at a hardware store.) A balanced blade will
stay in a horizontal position on the balancer. By con-
trast, a blade that is not balanced will settle to the
heavy side. If blade is not balanced, file more materi-
al off cutting edge of the blade. Continue to file and
check the blade until it is balanced.
9. In sequence, install blade, blade stiffener, curved
washer and blade bolt (Fig. 22). The concave side of
the curved washer must point toward the blade.
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 11.
12. Fill fuel tank with gasoline: refer to Fill Fuel Tank
With Gasoline, page 12.
13. Install the battery: refer to Activating and Charg-
ing Battery, page 11.
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. 11) must be
kept clean. Periodically apply a coat of paste wax on
inside of mower housing. Wax the grass deflector if
the discharge cover has been removed (Fig.11). This
will retard rust and prevent dirt and grass from stick-
ing 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. Before the unit is tipped, drain all gasoline
from fuel tank and oil from crankcase. Also re-
move battery so acid does not spill onto the rider.
(ALL BAGGING ATTACHMENTS MUST BE RE-
MOVED BEFORE TIPPING UNIT.)
2. Drain gasoline from fuel tank: refer to Draining
Gasoline From Fuel Tank, page 22.

CHECKING INTERLOCK SYSTEM
The interlock switches in the electrical system pre-
vent the engine from starting unless the gear shift is
in neutral and deck engagement lever is disen-
gaged. In addition, 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 operat-
ing correctly, check it before each use of the rider.
27
MAINTENANCE
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 Au-
thorized 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
parking brake is engaged. Rotate ignition key to
START. Engine should start and continue to run.
Then engage deck engagement lever and carefully
raise off the seat: the engine should stop. If engine
does not stop running, shut engine off and have in-
terlock system repaired by an Authorized TORO Ser-
vice Dealer. If engine shuts off when you raised off
the seat, the interlock system is functioning correctly
and the rider can be operated safely.
A WARNING
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.
Repeat the starting procedure two more times to en-
sure 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 petroleum 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.
28
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
cylinder when plug is removed. Next, remove plug
from cylinder head and pour two tablespoons of en-
gine oil into spark plug hole. Rotate engine by hand
to distribute oil on inside of cylinder. Then reinstall
spark plug and tighten it to 15 ft-lb (20.4 N-m). DO
NOT REINSTALL WIRE ON SPARK PLUG.
3. Drain oil from crankcase: refer to Changing
Crankcase Oil, page 20. However, do not fill crank-
case with oil at this time.
4. Remove battery from chassis: refer to Activating
and Charging Battery, page 11. 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 “UPPER?” fill line on side of battery. Reinstall
filler caps.
5. Clean dirt and chaff from outside of cylinder, cyl-
inder 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
Cleaning Underside of Mower Housing, page 24.
7. Check condition of blade: refer to Servicing Cut-
ter Blade, page 23.
8. Check and tighten all cap screws, bolts, screws,
nuts, and mating parts. If any part is damaged, re-
pair 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 20.
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 11.
13. Install the battery: refer to Activating and Charg-
ing Battery, page 11.
14. Store the rider in a clean, dry garage or storage
area. Remove key from ignition switch and keep it in
a memorable place. Cover the rider to protect it and
keep it clean.
