Always fasten your seat belt securely
and ensure the passenger seat belt is
properly and securely fastened prior
to operating or riding in this vehicle.
2. Shift into park.
3. Depress the brake pedal.
4. Turn the ignition switch clockwise to
the START position; then when the
engine starts, release to the RUN
position. Do not increase engine RPM
above idle.
CAUTION
Increasing engine RPM above idle
while in Park will cause belt damage.
TC038
2. To select low range from high range,
move the shift lever upward one position until the letter “L” is displayed
on the LCD.
CAUTION
Do not run the starter motor for more
than eight seconds per starting
attempt. The starter motor may overheat causing severe starter motor
damage. Allow 15 seconds between
starting attempts to allow the starter
motor to cool.
5. Let the engine warm up.
TC039
 NOTE: The high range is for normal driving with light loads. The low
range is for carrying heavy loads or
trailer towing. Compared to HIGH
range, the LOW range position provides slower speed and greater
torque to the wheels.
19
CAUTION
CAUTION
Always shift into low range when
operating on wet or uneven terrain,
when towing or pushing heavy loads,
and when using a plow. Failure to follow this caution may result in premature V-belt failure or in damage to
related drive system components.
Never increase engine speed above
idle RPM when in park or belt damage
will occur.
3. To select reverse gear from park,
move the shift lever upward one position until the letter “R” is displayed
on the LCD.
Driving the Vehicle
Once the engine is warm, the vehicle is
ready to be driven.
1. With the engine idling, press the foot
brake pedal to apply the brake; then
select the appropriate operating range
and/or direction with the shift lever.
2. Release the foot brake pedal and
press the accelerator to slowly add
power to start moving.
3. To slow down or stop, release the
accelerator and press the foot brake
pedal as necessary to slow or stop the
vehicle.

the letter “N” is displayed on the LCD. Whether you’re stopping slowly or stopping quickly, do this:
1. Release the accelerator; then press the
foot brake pedal to apply the brake.
2. If the wheels lock, release them for a
second; then apply them again. On
surfaces such as ice, mud, or loose
gravel, pump the brake pedal rapidly.
TC041
5. To select park, move the shift lever
completely down until the letter “P”
is displayed on the LCD gauge.
3. Never “ride” the brake. Even maintaining minimal pressure on the brake
pedal will cause the brake pads to
drag on the disc and may overheat the
brake fluid.
! WARNING
Excessive repetitive use of the
hydraulic brake for high speed stops
will cause overheating of the brake
fluid and premature brake pad wear
which will result in an unexpected
loss of brakes.
TC042
20
! WARNING
Use only DOT 4 approved brake fluid.
Never substitute or mix different
types or grades of brake fluid. Brake
loss can result. Check brake fluid
level and pad wear before each use.
Brake loss can result in serious
injury or death.
Parking
Parking involves following the previous
rules for braking; then:
1. After the vehicle stops, shift into park.
2. Then turn off the ignition.
! WARNING
Avoid parking this vehicle on hills.
The shift lever could inadvertently be
moved from park and allow the vehicle to roll downhill causing personal
injury or property damage.
3. If you have to park on a hill, shift to
park and block the wheels on the
downhill side.
Basic Turns
Steering effort is at its lowest in two-wheel
drive (2WD). Greater effort is needed when
in four-wheel drive (4WD). The greatest
effort is needed when in four-wheel drive
and the differential (700 only) is locked.
Never exceed 16 kph (10 mph) in the
LOCK position.
! WARNING
Use care in turns - turning the steering
wheel too far or too fast can result in
loss of control or a rollover. Excessive
speed, driving aggressively, or making
abrupt maneuvers, even on flat, open
areas, can cause loss of control, tipping, or rollover. Uneven terrain, rough
terrain, soft surfaces, slippery surfaces, and paved surfaces can also
cause a loss of control or rollover in a
turn. On loose or soft surfaces, allow
yourself more time and distance to
turn and slow down.
Driving Uphill
Always drive straight up the hill and
always avoid hills steeper than 15°.
1. Keep both hands on the wheel.
2. Prior to starting the climb, shift into
low range, select four-wheel drive for
traction, and gradually press the accelerator; then maintain a constant speed.
! WARNING
Do not attempt to turn around on a hill.

! WARNING
CAUTION
Driving this vehicle without extra caution when towing a trailer will be hazardous. Trailer towing can affect the
handling and braking of the vehicle.
Tow only at low speeds and never
exceed 16 kph (10 mph). Avoid sudden accelerations and stopping of
the vehicle. Do not make quick
maneuvers. Avoid uneven surfaces
and do not tow on hills. Never carry
passengers in a trailer unless the
trailer is designed for such use and
has a rigid tow bar. Allow more stopping distance than when not towing a
trailer.
If using additional hold-down straps
in any other areas, care must be
taken not to damage the vehicle.
Transporting
 NOTE: When transporting the
vehicle, make sure the vehicle is in
park.
Inform the owner/operator that this vehicle must be transported in its normal
operating position (on all four wheels)
and secured with hold-down straps in the
proper areas. Shown is the minimum
number of hold-down straps to be used.
! WARNING
Use extreme caution when operating
a machine on a ramp.
Ensure that the ROPS will clear the
top of an enclosed trailer.
Use only a full-width ramp; do not use
individual ramps for each side of the
machine.
Do not exceed a 15-degree angle
between the ramp and the ground or
between the ramp and the trailer or
truck.
Ensure the length of ramp is at least
four times (4X) as long as the height
of the trailer or truck bed to the
ground. This will ensure that ramp
angle does not exceed 15-degrees on
flat ground.
Avoid sudden acceleration or deceleration while driving the machine on
a ramp as this could cause a loss of
control or a tip-over situation.

Gasoline-Oil-Lubricant
Recommended Gasoline
The recommended gasoline to use in this
vehicle is 87 minimum octane regular
unleaded. In many areas, oxygenates are
added to the gasoline. Oxygenated gasolines containing up to 10% ethanol or 5%
methane are acceptable gasolines.
When using ethanol blended gasoline, it is
not necessary to add a gasoline antifreeze
since ethanol will prevent the accumulation of moisture in the fuel system.
CAUTION
Do not use white gas. Only recommended gasoline additives should be
used.
Recommended Engine/
Transmission Oil
CAUTION
Any oil used in place of the recommended oil could cause serious
engine damage. Do not use oils which
contain graphite or molybdenum additives. These oils can adversely affect
clutch operation. Also, not recommended are racing, vegetable, nondetergent, and castor-based oils.
The recommended oil to use is Toro 0W40 All Weather synthetic engine oil,
which has been specifically formulated
for use in this engine. Although Toro 0W40 All Weather synthetic engine oil is the
only oil recommended for use in this
engine, use of any API certified SM 0W40 synthetic oil is acceptable.
 NOTE: If the vehicle will be operated under severe conditions
(heavy pulling or loading, extremely
high ambient air temperatures, or
extended high-speed operation),
Toro recommends installing an
engine oil cooler kit if not so
equipped. For additional information, see your local authorized Toro
ROV dealer.
Recommended Front
Differential/Rear Drive
Lubricant
 NOTE: Toro recommends the use
of genuine Toro lubricants.
The recommended front differential/rear
drive lubricant is SAE approved 80W-90
hypoid. This lubricant meets all of the
lubrication requirements of this vehicle.
CAUTION
Any lubricant used in place of the
recommended lubricant could cause
serious front differential/rear drive
damage.
Filling Gas Tank
! WARNING
Always fill the gas tank in a well-ventilated area. Never add gasoline to the
gas tank near any open flames or with
the engine running or hot. DO NOT
SMOKE while filling the gas tank.
Since gasoline expands as its temperature
increases, the gas tank must be filled to
its rated capacity only. Expansion room
must be maintained in the tank particularly if the tank is filled with cold gasoline and then moved to a warm area.
Allow the engine to cool before filling the
gas tank. Care must be taken not to overfill the tank past the full mark. If overfilled, gas may leak out creating a fire
hazard.

During the first 10 hours of operation,
always use less than ½ throttle. Varying the
engine RPM during the break-in period
allows the components to “load” (aiding the
engine/transmission component mating
process) and then “unload” (allowing components to cool). Although it is essential to
place some stress on the engine components during break-in, care should be taken
not to overload the engine too often. Do not
pull a trailer during the break-in period.

Do not overfill the gas tank.
Engine Break-In
After the completion of the break-in
period, the engine oil and oil filter should
be changed. Other maintenance after
break-in should include checking of all
prescribed adjustments and tightening of
all fasteners. At the discretion and
expense of the owner/operator, the vehicle may be taken to an authorized Toro
ROV dealer for this initial service.
New vehicles and engines require a
“break-in” period. The first month is
most critical to the life of this vehicle.
Proper operation during this break-in
period will help assure maximum life and
performance from this vehicle.
! WARNING
Do not attempt sudden stops or put
yourself into a situation where a sudden stop will be required until the
brake pads are properly burnished.
1. Choose an area sufficiently large to
safely accelerate to 50 km/h (30 mph)
and to brake to a stop.
2. Accelerate to 50 km/h (30 mph); then
press brake pedal to decelerate to 0-8
km/h (0-5 mph).
3. Repeat procedure twenty times.

Limited Warranty
The Toro Company (hereinafter referred to as Toro) extends a limited warranty as described below on
each new Toro ROV it assembles and on each genuine Toro ROV part and accessory assembled and
sold by an authorized Toro ROV dealer. The limited warranty on a Toro ROV is extended to the original
retail purchaser for the time periods described below; however, the balance of the remaining warranty
may be transferred to another party. Warranty coverage is only available in the country in which the
original retail purchase occurs to the original retail purchaser resident in that country or to a transferee
resident in that country of the balance of the remaining warranty.
Toro warrants only the products it assembles and/or sells and does not warrant that other products will
function properly when used with a Toro ROV or will not damage the ROV. Toro does not assume any
liability for incidental or consequential damages.
Toro will repair or replace, at its option, free of charge (including any related labor charges), any parts
that are found to be warrantable in material or workmanship. This repair work MUST be done by an
authorized Toro ROV dealer. No transportation charges, rental charges, or inconvenience costs will be
paid by Toro. The warranty is validated upon examination of said parts by Toro or an authorized Toro
ROV dealer. Toro reserves the right to inspect such parts at its factory for final determination if warranty
should apply.
The warranty periods are as follows:
1. One year from the original date of sale or 1000 operational hours, whichever occurs first.
2. Thirty days from the original date of sale of a Toro ROV on batteries.
Exclusions to this warranty include normal wear, abuse, or corrosion and the following parts and items:
Tires
Drive/Driven Clutch Wear Parts
Oil Filter
Drive Belt
Air Filter
Torn or Punctured Upholstery
Brake Pads
Cracks or Gouges in Body Panels
Light Bulbs

Minnesota shall apply to all claims or disputes, exclusive of its conflicts of law provisions.
IMPLIED WARRANTY EXCLUSION AND DISCLAIMER
To the fullest extent permitted by law, Toro excludes and disclaims all implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose.

at 844-521-2383.
54
Warranty Procedure/Owner Responsibility
At the time of sale, an Owner Registration form is to be completed by the selling dealer and
consumer. The receipt of the form by Toro is a condition precedent to warranty coverage. It is
the selling dealer’s responsibility to retain and/or submit appropriate copies of the form to the
appropriate place(s) to initiate warranty coverage.
The dealer will furnish to the consumer a signed copy of the form which must be presented to
the dealer when requesting warranty service. The registration form is the consumer’s proof of
ownership and warranty eligibility. The form is used by the dealer to validate the warranty claim.
Retain your copy of the form and keep it in a safe place.
When warranty repair is suspected, the ROV should be taken to the selling dealer, who has the
primary responsibility to perform warranty repairs. Subject to the limitations set forth in the Limited Warranty, in the event the selling dealer has ceased to do business, you have moved, or
you are in a location away from your selling dealer, warranty may be performed by any authorized Toro ROV dealer.
The authorized Toro ROV dealer will examine the ROV or part to determine if, in his opinion, a
warrantable condition exists. If a warrantable condition appears to exist, the dealer will repair or
replace, at Toro’s option, free of charge, including any related labor costs, all parts that are
found to be warrantable and any other parts which the warrantable part caused to be damaged.
You, the owner, will then be asked to sign a warranty form to ensure Toro that the warranty work
was actually performed.
It is the owner’s responsibility to maintain and service the ROV in accordance with Toro’s recommendations in the Operator’s Manual. To protect yourself and your ROV, follow all safety and
service tips. Toro will NOT warrant repairs required as a result of not performing standard operator maintenance, storage procedures, and service as outlined in the Operator’s Manual.
Should you have any questions concerning the warranty, contact an authorized Toro ROV
dealer.
