Back Cover # ! ! " $ ! $ # $ 1 Contents 2 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. 4 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. Use extra care when approaching blind corners, shrubs, trees, the end of a fence or other objects that may obscure vision. 4. Keep nuts and bolts tight, especially the blade attachment bolts. Keep equipment in good condition. 5. Never tamper with safety devices. Check safety systems for proper operation before each use. 6. Keep the machine free of grass, leaves, or other 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.

Leaded regular gasoline may be used if unleaded regular is not available. POTENTIAL HAZARD • In certain conditions gasoline is extremely flammable and highly explosive. WHAT CAN HAPPEN IMPORTANT: Never use methanol, gasoline containing methanol, or gasohol containing more than 10% ethanol because the fuel system could be damaged. Do not mix oil with gasoline. • A fire or explosion from gasoline can burn you, others, and cause property damage. HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD • Always place gasoline containers on the • 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 gasoline. 10 • • • 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.

Change the oil more frequently when the engine is operated in dusty or dirty conditions. Operation Think Safety First Clutch Pedal Please carefully read all the safety instructions on pages 3–9. Knowing this information could help you, your family, pets or bystanders avoid injury. (Fig. 2)—Used in conjunction with gear shift. Depress clutch pedal fully when shifting gears and whenever brake is used. Controls Brake Pedal Become familiar with all the controls (Fig. 1) before you start the engine and operate the machine. (Fig. 2)—Must be depressed to slow down or stop the rider. When pedal is depressed, a caliper engages the brake disc at side of transaxle. Remember to depress clutch pedal when using brake. Gear Shift Note: (Fig. 1)—Transaxle has five forward speeds, neutral and reverse. The gear shift lever is located at right side of operator. An interlock switch prevents engine from being started when transaxle is in any gear except neutral. 1 Avoid depressing brake pedal while clutch is engaged otherwise premature brake wear will occur. Do not rest foot on pedal while mowing. Parking Brake Always set the parking brake when you stop the machine or leave it unattended. (Fig. 2)—Parking brake must be used in conjunction with brake pedal. When pedal is depressed, end of parking brake lever holds brake pedal in depressed position and a caliper engages the brake disc at side of transaxle. Setting the Parking Brake 1. Depress brake pedal fully and shift transaxle to neutral. 2. Move parking brake control upward and release brake pedal. Figure 1 1. Gear shift 17 Operation Key Choice Releasing the Parking Brake 1. To release the parking brake, depress brake pedal, and parking brake lever will return it to its disengaged position. Release brake pedal slowly. Ignition Switch A hold and release switch used for deactivating the “Operating–In–Reverse” interlock feature. Located on panel in front and below the seat (Fig. 3). Throttle Control (Fig. 2)—Switch is part of engine ignition system, and it has three positions: OFF, RUN and START. Key automatically returns to RUN position from START position when released after engine starts. (Fig. 3)—Connects to and operates carburetor mounted throttle and choke. Control has four positions: IDLE, HOT RESTART, OPERATE and CHOKE. Push control slightly to the left and upward to obtain CHOKE position. 1 4 1 3 2 4 Figure 2 1. Clutch pedal 2. Brake pedal 2 3.

Operating Procedure 1. Move deck engagement lever to DISENGAGE. 2. Start the engine: refer to Starting/Stopping Instructions, page 16. IMPORTANT: When rider is used for the first time, operate the transaxle in all gears to ensure that drive system is functioning correctly, and become familiar with the controls and operating characteristics. Never shift while the machine is moving or without first depressing the clutch pedal; transaxle damage could result. Stopping 1. Depress clutch and brake pedals, move throttle control lever to SLOW position, move deck engagement lever to DISENGAGE, and rotate ignition key to OFF. 2. Shift transaxle to neutral and engage parking brake. 3. Remove key from ignition switch. Wait for all moving parts to stop before getting off seat. 3. 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 result. Should you encounter a jerking or grabbing condition during operation, contact your local Authorized TORO Service Dealer for assistance. Break–In The engine requires no special break-in other than changing oil after the first five hours of operation. Operate the transaxle in all gears to ensure that drive system is functioning correctly. After the first five hours of operation, check the condition of the belts. Adjusting Height–of–Cut 4. To engage blade for cutting, move height-of-cut control to the desired setting. Place throttle in OPERATE 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, engage parking brake, and rotate key to OFF position after allowing the engine to idle a short period. The height-of-cut may be set in one of six positions from approximately 1-1/2 to 4 inches (38 to 102 mm). 1. Ensure the deck engagement lever is in DISENGAGE position. 2. Move height-of-cut control into desired setting. 3. To engage blade for cutting, move deck engagement lever to ENGAGE. Depress clutch pedal and shift transaxle into selected gear. Then release pedal slowly until traction drive engages. 19 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. Operation 1 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. 1 Figure 4 5. “Key choice” switch Figure 5 6. Operating–in–reverse light Testing the Safety Interlock System Test the safety interlock system before you use the machine each time. If the safety system does not operate as described below, have an Authorized Service Dealer repair the safety system immediately. 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 Authorized 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. 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 engine. Move the PTO lever to the “engage” position and turn the “Key Choice” key and release. The “Key Choice” warning light should illuminate. Move the PTO lever to the “disengage” position and the “Key Choice” warning light should turn off. 22 Operation Side Discharging or Bagging To side discharge or use bagging attachment, stop engine and wait for all moving parts to stop. 1. Shut the engine off and remove the ignition key. 2. Remove the wing nut securing the discharge cover (Fig. 6) to the mower housing. NEVER REMOVE THE GRASS DEFLECTOR FROM THE MOWER HOUSING (Fig. 6). 3. Lift the grass deflector and metal tab together to enable the removal of the metal tab. Continue to lift the grass deflector enough to remove the plastic discharge cover off the long bolt. Save the discharge cover and metal tab for possible future reinstallation. 4. Reinstall the wing nut and tighten. Lower the grass deflector fully down. Unit is ready for side discharge or bagging. 3 1 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 to “OFF”. Also remove the key and pull the wire off the spark plug(s). 5 2 4 Figure 6 1. Wing nut 2. Long bolt 3. Plastic discharge cover 4. Metal tab 5. Grass deflector For improved bagger performance change to high sail blade and remove Recycler kickers. If you no longer wish to side discharge or bag clippings, the discharge cover can be reinstalled by securing it the mower housing with the wing nut. Driving Forward or Backward The throttle control regulates the engine speed as measured in rpm (revolutions per minute). Place the throttle control in the “FAST” position for best performance while mowing. To go forward push the clutch in and place the gear shifter in a forward gear, release the parking brake: refer to Releasing the Parking Brake, page 18 and slowly release the clutch. To go in reverse push the clutch in to stop and after stopping completely, place the gear shifter in reverse. Slowly release the clutch. 23 Operation Note: For reverse motion, with the PTO engaged, the operating–in–reverse interlock must be deactivated by the “key choice” switch located in front of and below the seat. Stopping the Machine To stop the machine, push the clutch in and shift to neutral (”N”). Disengage the power take off (PTO), and turn the ignition key to “OFF” to stop the engine. Also set the parking brake if you leave the machine unattended; refer to Setting the Parking Brake, page 17. Remember to remove the keys from the ignition and “Key Choice” switches. Positioning the Seat The seat can move forward and backward. Position the seat where you have the best control of the machine and are most comfortable. 1. Raise the seat and loosen the lock nuts (Fig. 7). 2. Slide the seat to the desired position and tighten the lock nuts. 1 POTENTIAL HAZARD • Someone could move or attempt to operate the tractor while it is unattended. WHAT CAN HAPPEN • Children or bystanders may be injured if they use the tractor. HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD • Always remove the ignition and “Key Choice” keys and set the parking brake when leaving the machine unattended, even if just for a few minutes. IMPORTANT: Do not “Ride the Brakes”. Shift to a lower gear for slower ground speed. Choose a slow speed so that you will not have to stop or shift while on a slope. 24 Figure 7 1. Lock nuts Operation 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. 3 3 5 2 4 1 6 3 394 Figure 8 1. Deck ring 2. Discharge cover 3. Kickers 4. Blade 5. Blade stiffener 6. Grass deflector 25 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. 27 Maintenance Service Interval Chart Service Operation 5 Hours Change Oil (Initial) X Change Oil (Periodic) 25 Storage Hours Service X X X Check Cutter Blade X X X Check Brake X X X Grease Front Axle Spindles (2) & Wheel Bearings (2) and Rear Axle (2) X X Lubricate Pivot Points X X Service Air Cleaner X X Check Spark Plug X X Check Blade Drive Belt X Check Traction Drive Belt X Drain Gasoline X Wash Underside of Mower X X X X Paint Chipped Surfaces X Remove Rear Wheels and Grease Axles X Remove Rear Wheels and Grease Axle Zerks 28 X 2 Years X X Notes X Check System Interlock Clean Outside of Engine Spring Service Before each use X More often in dusty, dirty, conditions.

HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD • Check blade often • Replace if bent or out of balance • Use 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. 6. 7. 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. In sequence, install blade, blade stiffener, curved washer and blade bolt (Fig. 24). The concave side of the curved washer must point toward the blade. Tighten blade bolt to 45-60 ft-lb (61-81 Nm) 1. Belt guides 2.
