    Adding Ballast to the Machine

    Danger

    To prevent personal injury or death from rollover when the machine is equipped with the loader, add the recommended amount of ballast to the machine.

    • Add the correct ballast to the hitch.

    • Use ballast to prevent the front axle or tractor components from overload during loader operation.

    • Always wear your seatbelt.

    Determining the Ballast

    Add ballast to the hitch until the rear axle weight on level ground is at least 25% of the gross vehicle weight.

    Use the following steps and formulas to determine the ballast:

    1. Put a full load in the bucket, lift the bucket to the furthest position forward as shown in Figure 32.

    2. At a scale, measure the gross vehicle weight (GVW) at the front and rear axle, with the loader raised so that the bucket pivot pin is as high as the boom pivot pin (Figure 32).

    3. Use the following formulas in the order listed in the table to calculate the amount of rear ballast.

      Note: If R is less than required rear axle weight (RRAW), no ballast is required (Figure 32).If R is greater than RRAW, ballast is required (RBR).

      Formulas

      1GVW=F+R
      2RRAW=GVWx25%
      3RBR=RRAWR
      4BR=RBRX133%

    During Operation

    During Operation Safety

    General Safety

    • The owner/operator can prevent and is responsible for accidents that may cause personal injury or property damage.

    • Your passenger should sit in the designated seating position only. Do not carry passengers in the bed. Keep bystanders and pets away from the machine during operation.

    • Wear appropriate clothing, including eye protection; long pants; substantial, slip-resistant footwear; and hearing protection. Tie back long hair and do not wear loose clothing or loose jewelry.

    • When using chemicals, use appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE). Refer to the instructions from the chemical manufacturer.

    • Do not operate the machine while ill, tired, or under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

    • Operate the machine outdoors or in a well-ventilated area only.

    • Do not exceed the maximum gross vehicle weight (GVW) of the machine.

    • Use extra caution when braking or turning the machine with a heavy load in the bed.

    • Carrying oversized loads in the bed reduces the stability of the machine. Do not exceed the carrying capacity of the bed.

    • Carrying material that cannot be bound to the machine, such as a large tank of liquid, may affect the steering, braking, and stability of the machine. When you carry material that cannot be bound to the machine, use caution when steering or braking.

    • Carry a reduced load and reduce the ground speed of the machine when operating on rough, uneven terrain, and near curbs, holes, and other sudden changes in terrain. Loads may shift, causing the machine to become unstable.

    • Before you start the engine, ensure that the transmission is in neutral, the parking brake is engaged, and you are in the operating position.

    • You and your passenger should remain seated with fastened seatbelts whenever the machine is moving. Keep your hands on the steering wheel; your passenger should use the handholds provided. Keep arms and legs within the machine body at all times.

    • Do not mount or dismount a moving machine.

    • Operate the machine only in good visibility. Watch for holes, ruts, bumps, rocks, or other hidden objects. Uneven terrain could overturn the machine. Tall grass can hide obstacles. Use care when approaching blind corners, shrubs, trees, or other objects that may obscure your vision.

    • Always watch out for and avoid low overhangs such as tree limbs, door jambs, overhead walkways, etc.

    • Look behind and down before reversing the machine to be sure of a clear path.

    • When using the machine on public roads, follow all traffic regulations and use any additional accessories that may be required by law, such as lights, turn signals, slow-moving vehicle (SMV) signs, and others as required.

    • If the machine ever vibrates abnormally, stop the machine immediately, shut off the engine, remove the key, wait for all movement to stop, and inspect for damage. Repair all damage to the machine before resuming operation.

    • It can take longer to stop the machine on wet surfaces than on dry surfaces.

    • Do not touch the engine, transmission, axles, exhaust pipe, diesel-particulate filter, or hydraulic components while the engine is running, or soon after you shut off the engine, because these areas may be hot enough to cause burns.

    • Use extreme caution when freeing a mired machine.

      • Inspect any chains and cables before using them. Failure of the chains, cables, and the tow bar present a serious hazard.

      • Use the drawbar on the towing machine when freeing a mired machine.

    • Do not leave a running machine unattended.

    • Before leaving the operating position, do the following:

      • Park the machine on a level surface.

      • Engage the parking brake.

      • Lower the cargo bed, loader, and attachments (if equipped).

      • Return the shift lever to the NEUTRAL position.

      • Shut off the engine and remove the key.

    • Do not operate the machine when there is the risk of lightning.

    • Keep hands, feet, and clothing away from the rotating attachment driveshaft.

    • Use only accessories approved by The Toro® Company.

    Rollover Protection System (ROPS) Safety

    • Ensure that the seat belt is attached and that you can release it quickly in an emergency.

    • The operator and passenger must always wear their seatbelts.

    • Do not remove the ROPS from the machine.

    • Check carefully for overhead obstructions and do not contact them.

    • Keep the ROPS in safe operating condition by thoroughly inspecting it periodically for damage.

    • Do not operate the machine with a damaged ROPS. Do not repair or alter the ROPS.

    • The ROPS is an integral safety device.

    Slope Safety

    Slopes are a major factor related to loss-of-control and tip-over accidents, which can result in severe injury or death.

    • Survey the site to determine which slopes are safe for operating the machine and establish your own procedures and rules for operating on those slopes. Always use common sense and good judgment when performing this survey.

    • If you feel uneasy operating the machine on a slope, do not do it.

    • Keep all movement on slopes slow and gradual. Do not suddenly change the speed or direction of the machine.

    • Avoid operating the machine on wet terrain. Tires may lose traction. A rollover can occur before the tires lose traction.

    • If you begin to lose momentum while climbing a slope, gradually engage the brakes and slowly reverse the machine straight down the slope.

    • Turning on a slope can be dangerous. If you must turn on a slope, do it slowly and cautiously.

    • Loads and attachments affect stability on a slope.

      • Carry a reduced load and reduce your ground speed when operating on a slope.

      • Secure the load to the machine bed to prevent the load from shifting.

      • Take extra care when hauling loads that shift easily (e.g., liquids, rock, or sand).

    • Avoid starting, stopping, or turning the machine on a slope, especially with a load.

      • Stopping while going down a slope takes longer than stopping on level ground.

      • If you must stop the machine, avoid sudden speed changes, which can cause the machine to tip or roll over.

      • Do not engage the brakes suddenly when rolling rearward, as this may cause the machine to overturn.

    • Do not drive the machine near drop-offs, ditches, or embankments. The machine could suddenly roll over if a wheel goes over the edge or if the edge gives way.

    Loading and Dumping Safety

    • Do not exceed the gross vehicle weight (GVW) of the machine when operating it with a load in the bed and/or towing a trailer; refer to Specifications.

    • Distribute the load in the bed evenly to improve the stability and control of the machine.

    • Before dumping the cargo bed (if equipped), ensure that there is no one behind the machine.

    • Do not dump a loaded cargo bed while the machine is sideways on a slope. The change in weight distribution may cause the machine to overturn.

    Starting the Engine

    Important: Do not attempt to push or tow the machine to get it started. Doing this cannot start the machine, and damage to the drive train could result.

    1. Sit on the operator’s seat and engage the parking brake.

    2. Disengage the PTO.

    3. Move the shift lever to the NEUTRAL position.

    4. Ensure that the auxiliary hydraulic lever is in the center position.

    3. Press the accelerator pedal until you attain the desired speed.

      Note: Avoid long periods of engine idling.

    Stopping the Machine

    To stop the machine, remove your foot from the accelerator pedal and press the brake pedal. As you press your foot further down on the pedal, the machine slows down quicker.

    Shutting Off the Engine

    Important: Allow the engine to idle for 2 minutes before shutting it off after a full-load operation. This allows the turbocharger to cool down before shutting off the engine. Failure to do so may damage the turbocharger.

    1. Move the shift lever to the NEUTRAL position.

    2. Rotate the key to the OFF position.

    3. Engage the parking brake.

      Note: The parking brake automatically engages when you turn off the engine.

    4. Remove the key from the switch.

    Caution

    If you leave the key in the switch, someone could accidently start the engine and seriously injure you or other bystanders.

    Remove the key from the switch when you leave the traction unit.

    Using the Standard Bed

    • When loading the standard bed, distribute the load evenly.

    • Use extra caution if the load exceeds the dimensions of the machine/standard bed.

    • Operate the machine with extra caution when handling off-center loads that cannot be centered.

    • Keep loads balanced and secure to prevent them from shifting.

    Using the Tailgate

    To release the tailgate, pull the bed latches towards the center of the bed (Figure 34). You can lower the tailgate so that it rests on the bed or the rockshaft arms. While lowering the tailgate into the bed, you can lock the latches in toward the center of the bed by rotating the latches into their retainer slots.

    g256327

    Removing or Installing the Standard Bed

    The standard bed is secured to the chassis with bolts and nuts (Figure 35). Remove the hardware to remove the bed; use it to secure the bed to the chassis.

    Caution

    The standard bed is heavy; do not try to hoist it by yourself.

    Use lifting equipment (e.g., an overhead hoist) to raise or lower the bed.

    g246519

    Using the Operation-Mode Selector

    Note: The machine must come to a stop before you can change the modes.

    Important: Leaving the machine in InchMode or Setup Mode disables the normal cleaning process of the diesel-particulate filter (DPF). Leaving the machine in either mode can plug the DPF and initiate a parked regeneration.

    Use the mode selector to change the machine operation status or to set up attachments. The modes are as follows:

    Attachment Mode

    Use Attachment Mode to select the specific type of attachment or when attachments are installed and being moved to the work site. To access Attachment Mode, turn the operation-mode selector to the position (Figure 36).

    Note: Changing attachments mounted to the Outcross may require the input of a pin number.

    Note: Driving the machine in Attachment Mode operates the same as driving in Low Automotive Mode when the PTO switch is in the OFF AND DISABLED position and the auxilary hydraulic lever is in the NEUTRAL position.

    g250707

    High Automotive Mode

    Use High Automotive Mode to drive the machine similar to a passenger vehicle with an automatic transmission. This mode provides the capacity for higher speed but lower power to the ground. Use this mode to efficiently transport yourself, a passenger, and a light payload.

    To access High Automotive Mode, turn the operation-mode selector to the position (Figure 37).

    g250708

    Low Automotive Mode

    Use Low Automotive Mode to drive the machine similar to a passenger vehicle with an automatic transmission. This mode provides the capacity for higher payloads or steeper hill climbing speed at a lower ground speed. Use this mode to efficiently transport heavier payloads or trailers.

    To access Low Automotive Mode, turn the operation-mode selector to the position (Figure 38).

    g250712

    InchMode

    If Equipped

    Note: The InchMode setting is available through the use of an optional kit; see your authorized Toro distributor for more information.

    Use the InchMode setting to aid in the connection of attachments to the machine. To access the InchMode setting, turn the operation-mode selector to the position (Figure 39).

    g250709

    To aid in the connection of attachments, locate and use the tethered remote to direct the machine forward or reverse, and to lift and lower the 3-point hitch. You can also engage the PTO.

    Setup Mode

    Use Setup Mode to access machine settings, service details, and basic machine information. You can also add or adjust the operational parameters of an attachment.

    You can also use Setup Mode to attach and configure attachments. The engine stays at low idle when pressing the accelerator pedal and slowly moves the machine forward or in reverse. Pulling the PTO switch out engages the PTO (regardless of the current PTO parameter setting) and use the paddle to raise or lower the 3-point hitch.

    To access Setup Mode, turn the operation-mode selector to the position (Figure 40).

    The following are possible in Setup Mode:

    • You can move the vehicle at a very low speed and low engine rpm.

    • You can lift and lower the 3-point hitch beyond the settings allowed for the current attachment.

    • With the PTO driveline at a safe angle, you can engage the PTO output at a low engine rpm with the PTO switch.

    Using Attachments

    Note: Refer to the Software Guide for instructions on adding and editing attachment parameters.

    Toro accepts no liability for machine damage or personal injury that results from the use of other manufacturer attachments. The user accepts the burden of these risks.

    • Each time an attachment or implement is mounted, check the 3-point-hitch movement. Ensure that there is no interference with hoses and attachment parts when operating the 3-point hitch.

      Important: You can damage the PTO shaft if you operate attachments at too high or low of an angle. Always read the attachment Operator’s Manual for instructions on operating the PTO shaft.

    • Attachments can change the stability and the operating characteristics of the machine.

    • Keep your hands and feet away from moving attachments.

    • Locate the pinch point areas marked on the traction unit and attachments and keep your hands and feet away from these areas.

    • Read the attachment Operator’s Manual before you use the attachment.

    Important: Incorrect PTO shaft length can cause machine and/or attachment damage and personal injury.

    Danger

    Entanglement in the rotating driveshaft can cause serious injury or death.

    • Keep hands and feet away from any rotating parts.

    • Ensure all guards are installed and all rotating shields rotate freely.

    • Before you perform adjustments or maintenance, shut off the engine, remove the key, wait for all moving parts to stop, and ensure that there is no movement in the driveshaft.

    Towing an Attachment with the Machine

    • Before you tow an attachment, determine the maximum transport speed for the attachment; refer to the attachment Operator’s Manual.

    • Attachments without brakes:

      • Use Low Automotive Mode; refer to Low Automotive Mode.

      • Do not transport at a speed greater than 13 km/h (8 mph).

      • Ensure that the weight of the attachment or trailer is less than 1-1/2 t (3,300 lb) when fully loaded.

    • Attachments with brakes:

      • Use Low Automotive Mode; refer to Low Automotive Mode.

      • Do not transport at a speed greater than 13 km/h (8 mph).

      • Ensure that the weight of the attachment or trailer is less than 7-1/4 t (16,000 lb) when fully loaded.

      • Mount the brake controller to the area above the traction and brake pedals (Figure 63). Adjust the controller so that the braking ability is maximized for the attachment load size.

        g263573
    • The machine is capable of pulling attachments of greater weight than the machine itself.

    • When hauling cargo or towing an attachment, do not overload your machine or attachment. Overloading can cause poor performance or damage to the brakes, axles, hydrostatic transmission, engine, steering, body structure, or tires.

      Important: To reduce potential for drive line damage, use low range.

    Understanding the Diesel-Particulate Filter and Regeneration

    The diesel-particulate filter (DPF) removes soot from the engine exhaust.

    The DPF regeneration process uses heat from the engine exhaust that is increased by the catalyst to reduce accumulated soot into ash.

    To keep the DPF clean, remember the following:

    • Run the engine at full engine speed when possible to promote DPF self-cleaning.

      Important: Leaving the machine in InchMode or Setup Mode (i.e., at a lower engine speed) disables the self-cleaning process of the DPF. Leaving the machine in either mode can plug the DPF and initiate a parked regeneration.

    • Use the correct engine oil.

    • Minimize the amount of time that you idle the engine.

    • Use only ultra low sulfur diesel fuel.

    Operate and maintain your machine with the function of the DPF in mind. Engine under load generally produces adequate exhaust temperature for DPF regeneration.

    Important: Minimize the amount of time that you idle the engine or operate the engine at low-engine speed to help reduce the accumulation of soot in the DPF.

    Caution

    The exhaust temperature is hot (approximately 600°C (1,112°F) during DPF regeneration. Hot exhaust gas can harm you or other people.

    • Do not operate the engine in an enclosed area.

    • Ensure that there are no flammable materials around the exhaust system.

    • Ensure that the hot exhaust gas does not contact surfaces that may be damaged by heat.

    • Do not touch a hot exhaust system component.

    • Do not stand near or around the exhaust pipe of the machine.

    Crankcase Capacity: Approximately 5.7 L (6 US qt) with the filter.

    Viscosity: Use the following engine oil viscosity grade:

    • Preferred oil: SAE 15W-40 (above 0°F)

    • Alternate oil: SAE 10W-30 or 5W-30 (all temperatures)

    Toro Premium Engine Oil is available from your authorized Toro distributor in either 15W-40 or 10W-30 viscosity grades. See the Parts Catalog for part numbers.

    Checking the Engine-Oil Level

    Maintenance Service IntervalMaintenance Procedure
    Before each use or daily
  • Check the engine-oil level.
  • The engine is shipped with oil in the crankcase; however, the oil level must be checked before and after the engine is first started.

    You can check the oil without raising the hood by reaching through the engine shield on the right side of the machine (Figure 79) and pulling out the dipstick from the engine. If you must add additional engine oil, you must raise the hood; refer to Raising the Hood.

    g259486

    Important: Check the engine oil daily. If the engine-oil level is above the Full mark on the dipstick, the engine oil may be diluted with fuel;If the engine-oil level is above the Full mark, change the engine oil.

    The best time to check the engine oil is when the engine is cool before it has been started for the day. If it has already been run, allow the oil to drain back down to the sump for at least 10 minutes before checking. If the oil level is at or below the Add mark on the dipstick, add oil to bring the oil level to the Full mark. Do not overfill the engine with oil.

    Important: Keep the engine-oil level between the upper and lower limits on the dipstick; the engine may fail if you run it with too much or too little oil.

    Check the engine-oil level; refer to Figure 80.
