Safety
This machine meets or exceeds the B71.1–1996
specifications of the American National Standards
Institute, in effect at the time of production.
However, improper use or maintenance by the
operator or owner can result in injury. To reduce
the potential for injury, comply with these safety
instructions and always pay attention to the safety
alert symbol, which means CAUTION,
WARNING, or DANGER—“personal safety
instruction.” Failure to comply with the
instruction may result in personal injury or death.
Safe Operating Practices
This product is capable of amputating hands and feet
and throwing objects. Always follow all safety
instructions to avoid serious injury or death.
POTENTIAL HAZARD
• Engine exhaust contains carbon monoxide,
which is an odorless, deadly poison.
General Operation
1.
Read, understand, and follow all instructions in
the operator’s manual and on the machine before
starting.
2.
Allow only responsible adults who are familiar
with the instructions to operate the machine.
3.
Clear the area of objects such as rocks, toys,
wire, etc., which could be picked up and thrown
by the blade.
4.
Be sure the area is clear of other people before
mowing. Stop the machine if anyone enters the
area.
5.
Never carry passengers.
6.
Do not mow in reverse unless absolutely
necessary. Always look down and behind before
and while backing.
7.
Be aware of the mower discharge direction and
do not point it at anyone. Do not operate the
mower without either the entire grass catcher or
the guard in place.
8.
Slow down before turning. Sharp turns on any
terrain may cause loss of control.
9.
Never leave a running machine unattended.
Always turn off blades, set parking brake, stop
engine, and remove key before dismounting.
WHAT CAN HAPPEN
• Carbon monoxide can kill you and is also
known to the State of California to cause
birth defects.
HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD
• Do not run engine indoors or in an enclosed
area.
10. Turn off blades when not mowing.
11. Keep hands, feet, hair and loose clothing away
from attachment discharge area, underside of
mower and any moving parts while engine is
running.
12. Stop the engine before removing the grass
catcher or unclogging the chute.
13. Mow only in daylight or good artificial light.
3
Safety
14. Do not operate the machine while under the
influence of alcohol or drugs.
15. Watch for traffic when operating near or crossing
roadways.
•
Keep all movement on slopes slow and gradual.
Do not make sudden changes in speed or
direction.
•
Avoid starting or stopping on a slope. If tires
lose traction, disengage the blades and proceed
slowly straight down the slope.
16. Use extra care when loading or unloading the
machine onto a trailer or truck.
DO NOT
17. Do not touch equipment or attachment parts
which may be hot from operation. Allow to cool
before attempting to maintain, adjust or service.
Slope Operation
Slopes are a major factor related to loss-of-control
and tip-over accidents, which can result in severe
injury or death. All slopes require extra caution. If
you cannot back up the slope or if you feel uneasy on
it, do not mow it.
•
Do not operate machine on hillsides or slopes
exceeding 15°.
•
Avoid turning on slopes. If you must turn, turn
slowly and gradually downhill, if possible.
•
Do not mow near drop-offs, ditches, or
embankments. The machine could suddenly turn
over if a wheel goes over the edge of a cliff or
ditch, or if an edge caves in.
•
Do not mow on wet grass. Reduced traction
could cause sliding.
DO
•
Mow up and down slopes greater than 5°, not
across.
•
Do not try to stabilize the machine by putting
your foot on the ground.
•
Mow downhill only on slopes above 10°, never
mow uphill. If a steep slope must be ascended,
back up the hill, and drive forward down the hill,
keeping the machine in gear.
•
Do not use a grass catcher on steep slopes.
Heavy grass bags could cause loss of control or
overturn the machine.
•
Remove obstacles such as rocks, tree limbs, etc.
from the mowing area. Watch for holes, ruts or
bumps, as uneven terrain could overturn the
machine. Tall grass can hide obstacles.
•
Use slow speed. Choose a low gear so that you
will not have to stop or shift while on the slope.
•
Follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for
wheel weight or counterweights to improve
stability.
•
Use extra care with grass catchers or other
attachments. These can change the stability of
the machine.

Safety
Children
Tragic accidents can occur if the operator is not alert
to the presence of children. Children are often
attracted to the machine and the mowing activity.
Never assume that children will remain where you
last saw them. The following requirements must be
followed to prevent injury to children.
1.
Keep children out of the mowing area and under
the watchful care of another responsible adult.
2.
Be alert and turn the machine off if children
enter the area.
3.
Before and while backing, look behind and down
for small children.
4.
Never carry children. They may fall off and be
seriously injured or interfere with safe machine
operation.
5.
Never allow children to operate the machine.
6.

debris build-up. Clean up oil or fuel spillage.
Allow the machine to cool before storing.
7.
Stop and inspect the equipment if you strike an
object. Repair, if necessary, before restarting.
8.
Grass catcher components are subject to wear,
damage and deterioration, which could expose
moving parts or allow objects to be thrown.
Frequently check components and replace with
manufacturer’s recommended parts, when
necessary.
9.
Mower blades are sharp and can cut. Wrap the
blade(s) or wear gloves, and use extra caution
when servicing them.
10. Use only genuine replacement parts to ensure
that original standards are maintained.
11. Check brake operation frequently. Adjust and
service as required.
Service
1.

POTENTIAL HAZARD
• In certain conditions gasoline is extremely
flammable and highly explosive.
WHAT CAN HAPPEN
• A fire or explosion from gasoline can burn
you, others, and cause property damage.
HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD
• Use a funnel and fill the fuel tank outdoors,
in an open area, when the engine is cold.
Wipe up any gasoline that spills.
• Do not fill the fuel tank completely full.
Add gasoline to the fuel tank until the level
is 1/4” to 1/2” (6 mm to 13 mm) below the
bottom of the filler neck. This empty space
in the tank allows gasoline to expand.
• Never smoke when handling gasoline, and
stay away from an open flame or where
gasoline fumes may be ignited by a spark.
• Store gasoline in an approved container
and keep it out of the reach of children.
Never buy more than a 30-day supply of

•
ground away from your vehicle before
filling.
Do not fill gasoline containers inside a
vehicle or on a truck or trailer bed because
interior carpets or plastic truck bed liners
may insulate the container and slow the
loss of any static charge.
When practical, remove gas–powered
equipment from the truck or trailer and
refuel the equipment with its wheels on the
round.
If this is not possible, then refuel such
equipment on a truck or trailer from a
portable container, rather than from a
gasoline dispenser nozzle.
If a gasoline dispenser nozzle must be used,
keep the nozzle in contact with the rim of
the fuel tank or container opening at all
times until fueling is complete.
Gasoline and Oil
Stabilizer/Conditioner
Filling the Fuel Tank
Add the correct amount of gas stabilizer/conditioner
to the gas. Using a stabilizer/conditioner in the
machine:
1.
Shut the engine off and set the parking brake.
2.
Clean around each fuel tank cap and remove the
cap. Add unleaded regular gasoline to both fuel
tanks, until the level is 1/4 to 1/2 inch (6 mm to
13 mm) below the bottom of the filler neck. This
space in the tank allows gasoline to expand. Do
not fill the fuel tanks completely full.
3.
Install fuel tank caps securely. Wipe up any
gasoline that may have spilled.
4.
Fuel gauge is located in right side tank.
•
Keeps gasoline fresh during storage of 90 days
or less. For longer storage it is recommended
that the fuel tank be drained.
•
Cleans the engine while it runs
•
Eliminates gum-like buildup in the fuel system,
which causes hard starting
IMPORTANT: Never use fuel additives
containing methanol or ethanol.

Operation
The Safety Interlock System
Understanding the Safety Interlock
System
The safety interlock system is designed to prevent the
engine from starting unless:
•
The power take off (PTO) is “OFF”
•
The gear shift lever is in “N” neutral.
The safety system is designed to stop the engine if:
•
You rise from the seat when the clutch/brake
pedal is released.
•
You rise from the seat when the blade (PTO) is
“ENGAGED.”
•
You shift into reverse with the power take off
(PTO) engaged and the operating–in–reverse
interlock not deactivated.
Operating–in–Reverse
An interlock feature is provided that prevents the
Power Take Off (PTO) from operating while the
tractor is traveling in reverse. If the unit is shifted
into reverse while the mower blade or other PTO
driven attachment is engaged, the engine will stop.
Do not mow while backing up unless it is
absolutely necessary. If you need to mow while in
reverse gear or use other PTO driven attachments
(such as a snowthrower or tiller), this
operating–in–reverse interlock feature may be
temporarily deactivated.
20
Before deactivating this feature, be sure there are no
children present on or near the property where you are
using the tractor, and that none are likely to appear
while you are mowing or operating an attachment.
Be extra observant after you have chosen to
deactivate the interlock feature because the sound of
the tractor’s engine might prevent you from being
aware that a child or a bystander has entered the area
where you are operating the tractor.
If you are certain that you can safely mow in reverse
or operate an attachment, deactivate the
operating–in–reverse interlock feature by turning the
“Key Choice” switch (Fig. 4), located in front of and
below the seat, after engaging the blade (PTO). A red
light on the front console (Fig. 5) will turn on as a
reminder that the operating–in–reverse interlock has
been deactivated. Once the interlock is deactivated it
stays in this mode––with your mower blade or
PTO–driven attachment operating whenever you back
up–– and the console light stays on until either the
blade (PTO) is disengaged, or the engine is turned
off.
Note:
Do not insert the “Key Choice” key
unless it is absolutely necessary to
mow in reverse or operate and
attachment. The “Key Choice” key
should also be removed from the unit
if it will be operated by someone other
than a responsible, experienced
operator. This will prevent the unit
from operating in reverse with the
mower blade or other PTO attachment
engaged. Always remove both the
ignition and the “Key Choice” keys
and put them in a safe place out of the
reach of children when leaving the unit
unattended.

POTENTIAL HAZARD
• A child or bystander could be backed over
by a riding mower with its blade(s)
engaged.
WHAT CAN HAPPEN
• Blade contact will cause serious personal
injury or death.
HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD
• Do not mow in reverse unless absolutely
necessary.
• Always look backward and down before
backing up.
• Use “Key Choice” switch only if you are
certain no children or other bystanders will
appear in the mowing area.
• Always remove both the ignition and “Key
Choice” keys and put them in a safe place
out of the reach of children or unauthorized
users when leaving the unit unattended.

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.
21
Operation
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 the engine does not stop running, shut
the engine off and have interlock system repaired
by an Authorized TORO Service Dealer. If the
engine shuts off when you raise off the seat, the
interlock system is functioning correctly and the
rider can be operated safely.
5.
Put the PTO lever in the “disengage” position
and the gear shifter in neutral. Now start the
engine. While the engine is running, move the
PTO lever to the “engage” position, push in the
clutch and put the gear shifter in reverse. The
engine should stop.
6.
Put the PTO lever in the “disengage” position
and the gear shifter in neutral. Now start the

IMPORTANT: When the discharge cover is in
place, it must be secured to the grass deflector
with the metal tab and wingnut.
POTENTIAL HAZARD
• Without the grass deflector, discharge
cover, or complete grass catcher assembly
mounted in place, you and others are
exposed to blade contact and thrown
debris.
WHAT CAN HAPPEN
• Contact with rotating mower blades(s) and
thrown debris will cause injury or death.
HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD
• NEVER remove the grass deflector from
the mower because the grass deflector
routes material down toward the turf. If
the grass deflector is ever damaged, replace
it immediately.
• Never put your hands or feet under the
mower.
• Never try to clear discharge area or mower
blades unless you move the power take off
(PTO) to “OFF” and rotate the ignition key

Recyclerr Rider Tips
Tips for Cutting Grass
Recyclerr Rider Features
Your Toro Recyclerr 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. NO TAG) 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:
•
Deck ring
•
Special blade and blade stiffener
•
Discharge cover
•
Four special “kickers” strategically positioned on
the underside of the mower deck. A fifth kicker
is molded into the discharge cover.
Even with the Recyclerr 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 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.
•
Clean any residue from the underside of the rider
housing and kickers after each use. If residue is
allowed to build up in rider housing and on
kickers, cutting performance may be
unsatisfactory.
•
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 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. If mower
housing does clog, shut engine off, disengage
blade and remove the obstruction with a stick.

Operation
•
MOWING IN EXTREME CONDITIONS—Air
is required to cut and recut grass clippings in
rider housing, so do not set height-of-cut too low
or totally surround 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.
•
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:
POTENTIAL HAZARD
• Unexpected blade contact can occur
WHAT CAN HAPPEN
• Personal injury can occur from contact
with blade
HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD
• Depress clutch and brake pedals, shift into
neutral and turn ignition key to “OFF”
position. Remove wire from spark plug to
prevent someone from accidentally starting
the machine.
A. With blade engaged, move onto a
previously cut area.
•
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.
•
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.
•
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.
•
26
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.
B.
Raise deck one or two height-of-cut settings
while driving rider forward and deck is in
operation.
C.
Depress clutch and brake pedals, move
throttle control lever to IDLE position,
disengage mower and rotate ignition key to
OFF.
•
MOW AT PROPER INTERVALS—Under most
normal conditions you’ll need to mow
approximately every 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.
•
Alternate mowing direction. This helps disperse
clippings over lawn for even fertilization.
•
SIDE DISCHARGING OR BAGGING—To
side discharge or use bagging attachment, stop
the engine and wait for all moving parts to stop.
Then remove the wing nut securing the discharge
Operation
cover to the mower housing. NEVER
REMOVE THE GRASS DEFLECTOR
FROM THE MOWER HOUSING.
•
Overlap cutting swaths instead of cutting a full
swath with each pass.
•
Mow across the marginal areas a second time.
Tips For Cutting Leaves
POTENTIAL HAZARD
• Without the grass deflector, discharge
cover, or complete grass catcher assembly
mounted in place, you and others are
exposed to blade contact and thrown
debris.
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
decomposed and restored valuable nutrients to the
soil.
WHAT CAN HAPPEN
•
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.
•
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.
•
If leaves are not cut up finely enough to be
hidden 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.
• Contact with rotating mower blades(s) and
thrown debris will cause injury or death.
HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD
• NEVER remove the grass deflector from
the mower because the grass deflector
routes material down toward the turf. If
the grass deflector is ever damaged, replace
it immediately.
• Never put your hands or feet under the
mower.
• Never try to clear discharge area or mower
blades unless you move the power take off
(PTO) to “OFF” and rotate the ignition key
to “OFF”. Also remove the key and pull
the wire off the spark plug(s).
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
emptied.
Note:
When bagger is full, mower will begin
to inject clippings down into the grass.
If the lawn appearance is not satisfactory after
mowing, try one of the following:
•
Sharpen the blade.
•
Raise the height-of-cut setting on your mower.
•
Cut your grass more frequently.
•
Reduce ground speed.

1.
Look at the center of the spark plug(s) (Fig. 13).
If you see light brown or gray on the insulator,
the engine is operating properly. A black coating
on the insulator usually means the air cleaner is
dirty.
IMPORTANT: Never clean the spark plug(s).
Always replace the spark plug(s) when it has:
a black coating, worn electrodes, an oily film,
or cracks.
Note: The spark plug usually lasts a long time;
however, the plug should be removed and checked
whenever the engine malfunctions.

may need proof of purchase (copy of registration card, sales
receipt, etc.) for warranty validation.
If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the Service Dealer's
analysis of the defect in materials or workmanship or if you
need a referral to a TORO Service Dealer, please feel free to
contact us at the following address:
