1. Work area safety
A. Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or
dark areas invite accidents.
Introduction
This chain saw is designed for cutting tree branches, logs,
and wooden beams of a diameter no longer than the cutting
length of the guide bar. It is to be used only to cut wood in
an outdoor domestic application by adults. It is designed
primarily to use battery pack Model 88540 (provided with
Model 51880) or Model 88541.
B.
Do not operate power tools in explosive
atmospheres, such as in the presence of
flammable liquids, gasses, or dust. Power tools
create sparks, which may ignite the dust or fumes.
C.
Keep children and bystanders away while
operating a power tool. Distractions can cause you
to lose control.
2. Personal safety
Read this information carefully to learn how to operate and
maintain your product properly and to avoid injury and
product damage. You are responsible for operating the
product properly and safely.
A. Stay alert, watch what you are doing, and use
common sense when operating a power tool.
Do not use a power tool while you are tired
or under the influence of drugs, alcohol, or
medication. A moment of inattention while operating
power tools could result in serious personal injury.
Register your product at www.Toro.com to ensure that Toro
can notify you in the case of a safety or warranty product

4. Chain Saw Safety
If devices are provided for the dust extraction
and collection, ensure that these are
connected and properly used. Using these devices
can reduce dust-related hazards.
A. Hold the power tool by insulated gripping
surfaces only, because the saw chain may
contact hidden wiring or its own cord. Saw
chains contacting a live wire may make exposed metal parts
of the power tool live and could give you an electric shock.
H. Keep your hands and feet away from the
cutting area.
3. Power tool use and care
B.
Wear safety glasses, hearing protection, and
protective equipment for your head, hands,
legs, and feet. Wearing adequate protective clothing
reduces personal injury by flying debris or accidental contact
with the saw chain.
A. Do not force the power tool. Use the correct
power tool for your application. The correct power
tool will do the job better and safer at the rate for which
it was designed.
B.
Do not use the power tool if the switch does
not turn it on and off. Any power tool that cannot
be controlled with the switch is dangerous and must be
repaired.
C.
Cutting trees can be hazardous and requires
expertise. Do not use the chain saw to fell large trees
that have a diameter greater than the length of the guide
bar.
C.
Disconnect the plug from the power source
and/or the battery pack from the power tool
before adjusting it, changing accessories on
it, or storing it. Such preventive safety measures reduce
the risk of starting the power tool accidentally.
D.
Do not operate a chain saw in a tree. Operating
a chain saw while up in a tree may result in personal injury.
D.
E. Always keep proper footing and operate the
chain saw only when standing on a fixed,
secure, and level surface. Slippery or unstable
surfaces such as ladders may cause a loss of balance or
control of the chain saw.
Store idle power tools out of the reach of
children, and do not allow persons unfamiliar
with the power tool or these instructions to
operate the power tool. Power tools are dangerous in
the hands of untrained users.
E. Store idle appliances indoors. When not in use,
appliances should be stored indoors in a dry and high or
locked-up place, out of the reach of children.
F.
G.
Maintain power tools. Check for
misalignment or binding of moving
parts, broken parts, and any other condition
that may affect the operation of the power
tools. If damaged, have the power tool
repaired before use. Many accidents are caused by
poorly maintained power tools.
When cutting a limb that is under tension, be
alert for spring back. When the tension in the wood
fiber is released, the spring loaded limb may strike you
and/or throw the chain saw out of control.
G.
Use extreme caution when cutting brush and
saplings. The slender material may catch the saw chain
and be whipped toward you or pull you off balance.
H. Carry the chain saw by the front handle with
the chain saw switched off and away from
your body. When transporting or storing the
chain saw, always use the guide bar cover.
Proper handling of the chain saw reduces the likelihood of
accidental contact with the moving saw chain.
Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly
maintained cutting tools with sharp cutting edges are less
likely to bind and are easier to control.
I. Follow the instructions for lubricating,
chain tensioning, and changing accessories.
Improperly tensioned or lubricated chain may either break
or increase the chance for kickback.
H. Use the power tool, accessories, tool bits, etc.
in accordance with these instructions and in
the manner intended for the particular type of
power tool, taking into account the working
conditions and the work to be performed.
Using the power tool for operations different from those
intended could result in a hazardous situation.
J.
Keep handles dry, clean, and free from oil and
grease. Greasy, oily handles are slippery, causing loss
of control.
K. Avoid kickback. Kickback may occur when the nose
or tip of the guide bar touches an object, or when the wood
pinches the saw chain while you are cutting. Tip contact
may cause a sudden reverse reaction, kicking the guide bar
up and back toward you; pinching the saw chain along
the top of the guide bar may push the guide bar rapidly
back toward you. Either of these reactions may cause you
to lose control of the saw, which could result in a serious
personal injury. You can avoid kickback by taking proper
precautions as given below:
I. Keep guards in place and in working order.
J.
F.
Use only replacement guide bars and chains
specified by the manufacturer. Incorrect
replacement guide bars and chains may cause chain
breakage and/or kickback.
K. Follow the manufacturer’s sharpening and
maintenance instructions for the saw chain.
Decreasing the depth gauge height can lead to increased
kickback.
• Use both hands whenever you operate
the chain saw. Maintain a firm grip, with
3
thumbs and fingers encircling the chain
saw handles, with both hands on the saw,
and with your body and arm in position
that allows you to resist kickback forces.
You can control kickback forces if proper precautions
are taken. Do not let go of the chain saw!
• Do not overreach and do not cut above
shoulder height. This helps prevent unintended
tip contact and enables better control of the chain saw
in unexpected situations.
5. Service
Have your power tool serviced by a qualified repair
person using only identical replacement parts. This
ensures that the safety of the power tool is maintained.
6. Battery Safety
A. Do not charge the power tool in rain or in wet locations.
B.
Do not use a battery-operated power tool in the rain.
C.
Use only the following type and size of battery(ies): Toro
battery Model 88540 or 88541 and battery charger
Model 88542.
D.
Remove or disconnect the battery before servicing, cleaning,
or removing material from the power tool.
E. Do not dispose of the battery in a fire; the cell may
explode. Check with local codes for possible special disposal
instructions.
F.
Do not open or mutilate the battery. Released electrolyte
is corrosive and may cause damage to the eyes or skin. It
may be toxic if swallowed.
G.
Do not open or mutilate the battery. Released electrolyte is
flammable and can cause damage if exposed to fire.
H. Exercise care in handling batteries to prevent shorting the
battery with conducting materials such as rings, bracelets,
and keys. The battery or conductor may overheat and cause
burns.
I. The ideal charging temperature is 0°C to 50°C (32°F
to 122°F). Charging outside of this temperature range
increases the charging time.

WARNING
Operating a chain saw improperly can cause serious
person injury or death.
Read and follow all operating instructions carefully
to help avoid possible personal injury.
g192108
Figure 7
4. Push the battery pack into the battery cavity until the
battery pack locks into place.
5. Ensure that the chain brake is in the OPERATING
position (Figure 8).
WARNING
Kickback can cause serious or fatal injury to you.
Always ensure that the chain brake system is
working properly before you operate the chain saw.
Avoid touching objects to be cut with the tip of the
chain saw.
There are 2 types of kickback:
• A fast upward motion of the chain saw that results when
the chain at the nose or top of the bar contacts an object
• A fast backward motion of the chain saw that results
when the chain at the nose or top of the bar is pinched by
the object being cut

Pruning a Tree
WARNING
Cutting higher limbs from a tree off the ground
can put you in an unstable position that could
be unsafe for you while handling a chain saw,
resulting in possible serious injury or death to you
or bystanders.
When cutting limbs from a standing tree, use the
following practices:
• Use a well-secured ladder to reach the higher
areas.
• Climb into a stable position on a ladder without
the chain saw and hoist the chain saw with a
rope.
• Do not climb on limbs or branches with a chain
saw.
• Do not overreach, and cut with both hands on
the chain saw.
• Ensure that all bystanders are away from the
area where branches may fall.
g204033
Figure 11
2. Stand to the left side of the chain saw and not in line
with the chain, and position yourself for balanced,
stable footing while sawing.
3. Stand on solid, even ground in front of the wood to
be cut.
4. While cutting, have the wood near the chain saw head,
at the exposed near end of the guide bar.
You can use the bucking teeth (Figure 12) to add
pressure but it works best with a sharp-toothed chain.
1. Grip the chain saw as shown in Figure 11.
2. While cutting small branches, apply light pressure to
the branch to be cut.
3. While cutting larger branches, make a shallow undercut
and then complete the cut from the topside of the
branch.
g200720
A. Cut from the underside of the limb about 15 cm
(6 inches) from the trunk. Cut a third of the way
through the limb.
Figure 12
1. Bucking teeth
B.
5. Press the chain saw lightly against the wood, allowing
the weight of the chain saw to drive the cutting.
Cut 5.0 to 10.0 cm (2 to 4 inches) farther out on
the limb and from above. Cut the limb until it falls.
C.
6. Keep steady pressure on the chain saw throughout the
cut, and release pressure only near the end of the cut.
Cut about a third of the diameter of the limb stub
from underneath as close to the trunk as possible.
D.
Cut the limb stub from above so that it meets the
previous cut as close to the trunk as possible.
Felling a Tree
WARNING
Cutting standing trees requires expertise and poses
hazards.
• Before attempting to cut a big tree, practice
cutting a few branches, limbs, or small logs to
familiarize yourself with the chain saw.
• Do not use this chain saw to fell large trees with
a diameter larger than the length of the guide
bar.
10
Note: Making this cut prevents the chain saw from
being pinched while making the next cut.
The proper operator stance for felling a tree is shown in
Figure 13.
g194823
Figure 15
1. First cut
2. Second cut
3. Back cut
5. Make a second cut to form a notch, starting the cut
at least 5 cm (2 inches) above and away from the first
cut (Figure 15).
g195831
Figure 13
6. Make the back cut from the opposite side of the notch
and about 5 cm (2 inches) higher than the bottom of
the notch as shown in Figure 15.
1. Determine the direction that the tree will fall. Consider
the wind direction, if there are heavier limbs on 1 side
of the tree, and the natural tilt of the tree, if any.
Important: Important: Stop the third cut 2.5 to
5.0 cm (1 to 2 inches) from the notch to form a
hinge between the cuts (Figure 15), which keeps
the tree from falling in the wrong direction or
twisting as it falls.
2. Determine a clear, safe retreat path away from the
danger area; refer to Figure 14.
Note: As the back cut nears the hinge (Figure 15), the
tree should begin to fall.
7. When the tree begins to fall, remove the chain saw,
shut it off, put it down, and retreat along the path you
determined in step 2.
Important: If the tree begins to fall in an
undesired direction, immediately stop the cut,
shut off the chain saw, put the chain saw down,
and use a wedge to open the cut and push the tree
in the desired direction.

Limbing a Fallen Tree
1. Grip the chain saw as shown in Figure 11.
2. Cut off the smaller limbs from the tree that are not
supporting its weight off the ground.
g194825
Figure 17
3. Cut the larger limbs that are support of the weight of
the tree from the bottom upward so that the limbs do
not pinch the saw blade (Figure 18).

Bucking a Log
• If you are cutting branches from a fallen tree or cutting
a log into lengths, support the log off the ground
(preferably on a sawbuck); refer to Figure 19.
g194820
Figure 19
• If the log is supported on an end, cut from the top. If the
chain saw binds in the cut, do not attempt to free it by
running the motor. Shut off the saw, then use a wedge to
pry open the cut and release the saw.
• If the log is supported on both ends, start from the top
and cut about a third of the way through the log (Figure
19A). Make a second cut from the underside to meet the
first cut (Figure 19B and Figure 19C). This keeps the log
from pinching the saw.
