Proposition 65 Warning
Use of this product may cause exposure to chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm.
There may be buried utility lines in the work area. Digging into them may cause a shock or an explosion.
Have the property or work area marked for buried lines and do not dig in marked areas. Contact your local marking service or utility company to have the property marked (for example, in the US, call 811 or in Australia, call 1100 for the nationwide marking service).
Always follow all safety instructions to avoid serious injury or death.
Do not transport an attachment with the arms raised. Always transport the attachment close to the ground; refer to Transport Position.
Have the property or work area marked for buried lines and other objects, and do not dig in marked areas.
Read and understand the content of this Operator’s Manual before starting the engine.
Use your full attention while operating the machine. Do not engage in any activity that causes distractions; otherwise, injury or property damage may occur.
Never allow children or untrained people to operate the machine.
Keep your hands and feet away from the moving components and attachments.
Do not operate the machine without the guards and other safety protective devices in place and working on the machine.
Keep bystanders and pets away from the machine.
Stop the machine, shut off the engine, and remove the key before servicing, fueling, or unclogging the machine.
Improperly using or maintaining this machine 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 these instructions may result in personal injury or death.
Operate the machine up and down slopes with the heavy end of the machine uphill. Weight distribution changes with attachments. An empty load-bearing attachment makes the rear of the machine the heavy end, and a full load-bearing attachment makes the front of the machine the heavy end. Most other attachments make the front of machine the heavy end.
Keep the attachment in the lowered position when on slopes. Raising the attachment on a slope affects the stability of the machine.
Slopes are a major factor related to loss of control and tip-over accidents, which can result in severe injury or death. Operating the machine on any slope or uneven terrain requires extra caution.
Establish your own procedures and rules for operating on slopes. These procedures must include surveying the site to determine which slopes are safe for machine operation. Always use common sense and good judgment when performing this survey.
Slow down and use extra care on hillsides. Ground conditions can affect the stability of the machine.
Avoid starting or stopping on a slope. If the machine loses traction, proceed slowly, straight down the slope.
Avoid turning on slopes. If you must turn, turn slowly and keep the heavy end of the machine uphill.
Keep all movements on slopes slow and gradual. Do not make sudden changes in speed or direction.
If you feel uneasy operating the machine on a slope, do not do it.
Watch for holes, ruts, or bumps, as uneven terrain could overturn the machine. Tall grass can hide obstacles.
Use caution when operating on wet surfaces. Reduced traction could cause sliding.
Evaluate the area to ensure that the ground is stable enough to support the machine.
Use caution when operating the machine near the following:
Bodies of water
The machine could suddenly roll over if a track goes over the edge or the edge caves in. Maintain a safe distance between the machine and any hazard.
Do not remove or add attachments on a slope.
Do not park the machine on a hillside or slope.
Always lower the attachment each time you shut off the machine or leave the operating position.
Clean any dirt or debris that may hinder connecting the attachment to the machine. Ensure that the attachment-locking pins are fully seated in the holes of the attachment-mount plate. Refer to the Operator’s Manual for the machine for detailed information on safely connecting an attachment to your machine.
When lifting the attachment keep it level and prevent the load from spilling backward.
Do not allow anyone to stand on the attachment or ride it in any way.
For wheeled traction units, the attachment can be used with or without the counterweight.
Check fasteners at frequent intervals for proper tightness to ensure that the equipment is in safe operating condition.
Refer to the Operator’s Manual for important details if you store the attachment for an extended period of time
Maintain or replace safety and instruction labels, as necessary.
Safety decals and instructions are easily visible to the operator and are located near any area of potential danger. Replace any decal that is damaged or missing.

To ensure optimum performance and continued safety certification of the machine, use only genuine Toro replacement parts and accessories. Replacement parts and accessories made by other manufacturers could be dangerous, and such use could void the product warranty.
Refer to the Operator’s Manual for the traction unit for the installation and removal procedure.
Important: Before installing the attachment, position the machine on a level surface, ensure that the mount plates are free of any dirt or debris, and ensure that the pins rotate freely. If the pins do not rotate freely, grease them.
Note: Always use the traction unit to lift and move the attachment.
If you do not fully seat the quick-attach pins through the attachment mount plate, the attachment could fall off the machine, crushing you or bystanders.
Ensure that the quick-attach pins are fully seated in the attachment mount plate.
When leveling the ground, angle the leveler slightly to keep the forward edge higher than the rear edge. Therefore, when driving the traction unit forward, the edge farthest from the traction unit should be higher; when driving in reverse, the edge closest to the traction unit should be higher.
When transporting an attachment, keep the attachment as close to the ground as possible, no more than 15 cm (6 inches) above the ground, and keep the loader arms retracted. Tilt it rearward.
You can use the leveler to haul container-grown trees, shrubs, and other bulky materials.
Position a load as close to the rear of the leveler as possible to maximize lifting capability.
When transporting a load, keep the leveler as close to the ground as possible.
Never attempt to lift more than the rated lift capacity of the traction unit.
Before long-term storage, wash the attachment with mild detergent and water to remove dirt and grime.
Paint all scratched or bare metal surfaces.
Note: Paint is available from your Authorized Service Dealer.
Store the attachment in a clean, dry garage or storage area. Cover it to protect it and keep it clean.
