  • Keep all shields, safety devices and decals in place. If a shield, safety device or decal is malfunctioning, illegible, or damaged, repair or replace it before operating the machine.

  • Avoid driving when it is dark, especially in unfamiliar areas. If you must drive when it is dark, be sure to drive cautiously, use the headlights.

  • Before operating the machine, always check all parts of the machine and any attachments. If something is wrong, stop using the machine. Make sure that the problem is corrected before the machine or attachment is operated again.

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

Safe Handling of Fuels

  • To avoid personal injury or property damage, use extreme care in handling fuel. Fuel is extremely flammable and the vapors are explosive.

  • Do not smoke near the machine.

  • Use only an approved nonmetal, portable fuel container.

  • Static electric discharge can ignite fuel vapors in a fuel container that is not grounded. Never fill containers inside a machine or on a truck or trailer bed with a plastic liner. Remove the fuel container from the bed of the machine and place it on the ground and away from the machine before filling.

  • Keep the nozzle in contact with the container while filling the fuel container. Remove equipment from the bed of the machine before fueling it. Do not use a nozzle-lock-open device.

  • Never remove the fuel cap or add fuel with the engine running.

  • Allow engine to cool before refueling.

  • Never refuel the machine indoors.

  • Never store the machine or fuel container where there is an open flame, spark, or pilot light, such as on a water heater or on other appliances.

  • Remove equipment from the truck or trailer and refuel it on the ground. If this is not possible, then refuel such equipment with a portable container rather than from a fuel-dispenser nozzle.

  • If fuel is spilled on clothing, change clothing immediately.

  • Never overfill the fuel tank. Replace the fuel cap and tighten it securely.

Operation

  • The operator and passenger should remain seated whenever the machine is in motion. The operator should keep both hands on the steering wheel, whenever possible, and the passenger should use the handholds provided. Keep arms and legs within the machine body at all times.

  • Drive slower and turn less sharply when you are carrying a passenger. Remember your passenger may not be expecting you to brake or turn and may not be ready. Never carry passengers in the box or on attachments.

  • Never overload your machine. The name plate (located under the middle of the dash) shows the load limits for the machine. Never overfill attachments or exceed the vehicle maximum gross vehicle weight (GVW).

  • Failure to operate machine safely may result in an accident, tip over of the machine, and serious injury or death. Drive carefully. To prevent tipping or loss of control, take the following precautions:

    • Use extreme caution, reduce speed, and maintain a safe distance around sand traps, ditches, creeks, ramps, any unfamiliar areas, or other hazards.

    • Watch for holes or other hidden hazards.

    • Use caution when operating the machine on a slope. Normally, travel straight up and down slopes. Reduce speed when making sharp turns or when turning on hillsides. Avoid turning on hillsides whenever possible.

    • Use extra caution when operating the machine on wet surfaces, at higher speeds, or with a full load. Stopping time will increase with a full load.

    • Avoid sudden stops and starts. Do not go from reverse to forward or forward to reverse without first coming to a complete stop.

    • Do not attempt sharp turns or abrupt maneuvers or other unsafe driving actions that may cause a loss of control of the machine.

    • When dumping, do not let anyone stand behind machine and do not dump the load on anyone’s feet. Release the tailgate latches from the side of box, not from behind.

    • Keep all bystanders away. Before backing up, look to the rear and ensure that no one is behind the machine. Back up slowly.

    • Watch out for traffic when near or crossing roads. Always yield the right of way to pedestrians and other machines. Always signal your turns or stop early enough so other persons know what you plan to do. Obey all traffic rules and regulations.

    • Never operate the machine in or near an area where there is dust or fumes in the air which are explosive. The electrical and exhaust systems of the machine can produce sparks capable of igniting explosive materials.

    • Always watch out for and avoid low overhangs such as tree limbs, door jambs, over head walkways, etc. Make sure there is enough room over head to easily clear the machine and your head.

    • If you are ever unsure about the safe operation of the machine, stop your work and ask your supervisor.

  • Before getting off the seat:

    • Stop the machine.

    • Lower the bed.

    • Shut the engine off and wait for all movement to stop.

    • Engage the parking brake.

    • Remove the key from the key switch.

  • Do not touch the engine, transmission, radiator, muffler or muffler manifold while the engine is running or soon after it has stopped because these areas may be hot enough to cause burns.

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

  • Lightning can cause severe injury or death. If lightning is seen in the area, do not operate the machine; seek shelter.

Braking

  • Slow down the machine before you approach an obstacle. This gives you extra time to stop or turn away. Hitting an obstacle can injure you and your passenger. In addition, it can damage the machine and its contents.

  • Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) has a major impact on your ability to stop and/or turn. Heavy loads and attachments make the machine harder to stop or turn. The heavier the load, the longer it takes to stop.

  • Decrease the speed of the machine if the cargo box has been removed and there is no attachment installed on the machine. The braking characteristics change and fast stops may cause the rear wheels to lock up, which will affect the control of the machine.

  • Turf and pavement are much more slippery when they are wet. It can take 2 to 4 times longer to stop the machine on wet surfaces as on dry surfaces. If you drive through deep-standing water and get the brakes wet, they will not work well until they are dry. After driving through water, you should test the brakes to make sure that they work properly. If they do not, drive slowly on a level ground while putting light pressure on the brake pedal. This will dry out the brakes.

Operating on Hills

Warning

Operating the machine on a hill may cause tipping or rolling of the machine, or the engine may stall and you could lose headway on the hill. This could result in personal injury.

  • Do not operate the machine on excessively steep slopes.

  • Do not accelerate quickly or slam the brakes when backing down a hill, especially with a load.

  • If the engine stalls or you lose headway on a hill, slowly back straight down the hill. Never attempt to turn the machine around.

  • Operate the machine slowly on a hill and use caution.

  • Avoid turning on a hill.

  • Reduce your load and the speed of the machine.

  • Avoid stopping on hills, especially with a load.

Take these precautions when operating the machine on a hill:

  • Slow the machine down before starting up or down a hill.

  • If the engine stalls or you begin to lose momentum while climbing a hill, gradually apply the brakes and slowly back the machine straight down the hill.

  • Turning while traveling up or down hills can be dangerous. If you have to turn while on a hill, do it slowly and cautiously. Never make sharp or fast turns.

  • Heavy loads affect stability. Reduce the weight of the load and your ground speed when operating on hills or if the load has a high center of gravity. Secure the load to the cargo box of the machine to prevent the load from shifting. Take extra care when hauling loads that shift easily (liquid, rock, sand, etc.).

  • Avoid stopping on hills, especially with a load. Stopping while going down a hill will take longer than stopping on level ground. If you must stop the machine, avoid sudden speed changes, which may initiate tipping or rolling of the machine. Do not slam on the brakes when rolling backward, as this may cause the machine to overturn.

  • We strongly recommend installing the optional ROPS kit before riding on hilly terrain.

Operating on Rough Terrain

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

Warning

Sudden changes in terrain may cause abrupt steering wheel movement, possibly resulting in hand and arm injuries.

  • Reduce your speed when operating on rough terrain and near curbs.

  • Grip the steering wheel loosely around the perimeter keeping thumbs up and out of the way of the steering wheel spokes.

Loading and Dumping

  • Do not exceed the rated weight capacity of the machine when operating it with a load in the cargo box, when towing a trailer, or both; refer to Specifications.

  • Use caution when operating the machine on a hillside or on rough terrain, particularly with a load in the cargo box or when towing a trailer or both.

  • Be aware that the stability and control of the machine are reduced when the load in the cargo box is poorly distributed.

  • Carrying oversized loads in the cargo box changes the stability of the machine.

  • The steering, braking , and stability of the machine are affected when carrying a load where the weight of the material cannot be bound to the machine, such as the liquid in a large tank.

    Warning

    The weight of the box may be heavy. Hands or other body parts could be crushed.

    • Keep your hands and other body parts clear when lowering the box.

    • Do not dump materials on bystanders.

  • Never dump a loaded cargo box while the machine is sideways on a hill. The change in weight distribution may cause the machine to overturn.

  • When operating with a heavy load in the cargo box, reduce your speed and allow for sufficient braking distance. Do not suddenly apply the brakes. Use extra caution on slopes.

  • Be aware that heavy loads increase your stopping distance and reduce your ability to turn quickly without tipping over.

  • The rear cargo space is intended for load carrying purposes only, not for passengers.

  • Never overload your machine. The name plate (located under the middle of the dash) shows the load limits for the machine. Never overfill attachments or exceed the machine maximum gross vehicle weight (GVW).

Maintenance

  • Before servicing or making adjustments to the machine, shut off the engine, engage the parking brake, and remove the key from the key switch to prevent accidental starting of the engine.

  • Never work under a raised bed without placing the bed safety support on the fully extended cylinder rod.

  • Make sure that all hydraulic-line connectors are tight and that all hydraulic hoses and lines are in good condition before applying pressure to the system.

  • Before disconnecting or performing any work on the hydraulic system, relieve all pressure in the system by shutting off the engine, cycling the dump valve from raise to lower, and/or lowering box and attachments. Place the remote hydraulics lever in the float position. If the box must be in raised position, secure it with the safety support.

  • To make sure that the entire machine is in good condition, keep all nuts, bolts, and screws properly tightened.

  • To reduce the potential fire hazard, keep the engine area free of excessive grease, grass, leaves, and accumulation of dirt.

  • If the engine must be running to perform a maintenance adjustment, keep hands, feet, clothing, and any parts of the body away from the engine and any moving parts. Keep everyone away.

  • Do not overspeed the engine by changing the governor settings. The maximum engine speed is 3,650 rpm. To ensure safety and accuracy, have an Authorized Toro Distributor check the maximum engine speed with a tachometer.

  • If major repairs are ever needed or assistance is required, contact an Authorized Toro Distributor.

  • To be sure of optimum performance and safety, always purchase genuine Toro replacement parts and accessories. Replacement parts and accessories made by other manufacturers could be dangerous. Altering this machine in any manner may affect the operation of the machine, performance, durability or its use may result in injury or death. Such use could void the product warranty of The Toro® Company.

  • Check the tire pressure.
  • Tire Air Pressure Range: 55 to 103 kPa (8 to 22 psi)

    Important: Do not exceed the maximum air pressure indicated on the sidewall of the tire.

    Note: The air pressure needed in the tires is determined by the payload that you intend to carry.

    1. Check the air pressure in the tires.

      Note: The air pressure range in the front and rear tires is 55 to 103 kPa (8 to 22 psi).

      • Use lower air pressure in the tires for lighter payloads, for less the soil compaction, for a smoother the ride, and to minimize tire marks in the ground.

      • Use higher air pressure in the tires for carrying heavier payloads at higher speeds.

    2. If needed, adjust the air pressure in the tires by adding or removing air in the tires.

    Adding Fuel

    Recommended Fuel

    The engine runs on clean, fresh diesel fuel with a minimum cetane rating of 40. Purchase fuel in quantities that you can use within 30 days to ensure fuel freshness.

    Use summer-grade diesel fuel (No. 2-D) at temperatures above -7°C (20°F) and winter grade diesel fuel (No. 1-D or No. 1-D/2-D blend) below -7°C (20°F). Use of winter-grade diesel fuel at lower temperatures provides lower flash point and pour point characteristics, allowing easier starts and lessening the chances of chemical separation of the fuel due to lower temperatures.

    Using summer-grade diesel fuel above -7°C (20°F) contributes toward longer life of the fuel-pump components.

    Important: Never use kerosene or gasoline in place of diesel fuel. Failure to observe this caution will damage the engine.

    Filling the Fuel Tank

    Fuel-tank capacity: 26.5 L (7 US gallons)

    1. Clean the area around the fuel-tank cap.

    2. Remove the fuel-tank cap (Figure 20).

      g008398

    Breaking in a New Machine

    Maintenance Service IntervalMaintenance Procedure
    After the first 100 hours
  • Perform the breaking in a new machine guidelines.
  • Perform the breaking in a new machine guidelines to provide proper performance and long life for the machine.

    • Ensure that the brakes are burnished; refer to Burnishing the Brakes.

    • Check the fluid and engine-oil levels regularly. Remain alert for signs that the machine or its components are overheating.

    • After starting a cold engine, let it warm up for about 15 seconds before using the machine.

    • Vary the machine speed during operation. Avoid fast starts and quick stops.

    • A break-in oil for engine is not required. Original engine oil is the same type specified for regular oil changes.

    • Refer to for any special low hour checks.

    • Check the front suspension positioning and adjust it if necessary; refer to Adjusting the Front Wheel Toe-in and Camber.

    Loading the Cargo Box

    Use the following guidelines when loading the cargo box and operating the machine:

    • Observe the weight capacity of the machine and limit the weight of the load that you carry in the cargo box as described in Specifications and on the gross vehicle weight tag of the machine.

      Note: The load rating is specified for machine operation on a level surface only.

    • Reduce the weight of the load that you carry in the cargo box when operating the machine on hills and rough terrain.

    • Reduce the weight of the load that you carry when the materials are tall (and have a high center of gravity) such as a stack of bricks, landscaping timbers, or fertilizer bags. Distribute the load as low as possible, making sure that the load does not reduce your ability to see behind the machine when operating it.

    • Keep loads centered by loading the cargo box as follows:

      • Evenly position the weight in the cargo box from side to side.

        Important: Tipping over is more likely to occur if the cargo box is loaded to 1 side.

      • Evenly position the weight in the cargo box from front to back.

        Important: Loss of steering control or the machine may tip over if you position the load behind the rear axle and the traction on the front tires is reduced.

    • Use extra caution when transporting oversized loads in the cargo box, particularly when you cannot center the weight of the oversize load to the cargo box.

    • Whenever possible, secure the load by binding it to the cargo box so it does not shift.

    • When transporting liquid in a large tank (such as a sprayer tank), use caution when driving the machine uphill or downhill, when suddenly changing speed or stopping, or when driving over tough surfaces.

    The capacity of the cargo box is 0.37 m3 (13 ft3). The amount (volume) of material that can be placed in the box without exceeding the load ratings of the machine can vary greatly depending on the density of the material. For example, a level box of wet sand weighs approximately 680 kg (1,500 lb), which exceeds the load rating by 113 kg (250 lb). But a level box of wood weighs 295 kg (650 lb), which is under the load rating.

    See the table below for load volume limits with various materials:

    MaterialDensityMaximum Cargo Box Capacity(on level ground)
    Gravel, dry1,522 kg/m3 (95 lb/ft3)Full
    Gravel, wet1,922 kg/m3 (120 lb/ft3)3/4 Full
    Sand, dry 1,442 kg/m3 (90 lb/ft3)Full

    Wood721 kg/m3 (45 lb/ft3)Full
    Bark<721 kg/m3 (<45 lb/ft3)Full
    Earth, packed1,602 kg/m3 (100 lb/ft3)3/4 Full (approx.)

    Transporting the Machine

    Use a trailer with full-width ramps to move the machine a long distance. Make sure that the machine is securely bound to the trailer. Refer to Figure 21 and Figure 22 for the location of the tie-down points on the machine.

    Caution

    Loose seats may fall off the machine and trailer when transporting and land on another machine or become an obstruction on the road.

    Remove the seats or make sure that the seats are securely fastened in the detents.

    g008401
    g008400

    Towing the Machine

    In case of an emergency, you can tow the machine for a short distance. However, this should not be a standard operating procedure.

    Warning

    Towing at excessive speeds could cause a loss of steering control, resulting in personal injury.

    Never tow the machine faster than 8 km/h (5 mph).

    Towing the machine is a 2-person job. If the machine must be moved a considerable distance, transport it on a truck or trailer; refer to Towing a Trailer

    1. Remove the drive belt from the machine; refer to Replacing the Drive Belt.

    2. Affix a tow line to the tongue at the front of the machine’s frame (Figure 21).

    3. Put the transmission of the machine in NEUTRAL and disengage the parking brake.

    Towing a Trailer

    The machine is capable of pulling trailers. Two types of tow hitches are available for the machine, depending on your application. Contact your Authorized Toro Distributor for details.

    When hauling cargo or towing a trailer, do not overload your machine or trailer. Overloading can cause poor performance or damage to the brakes, axle, engine, transaxle, steering, suspension, body structure, or tires. Always load a trailer with 60% of the cargo weight in the front of the trailer. This places approximately 10% of the Gross Trailer Weight (GTW) on the tow hitch of the machine.

    The maximum cargo load shall not exceed 567 kg (1,250 lb), including the GTW . For example, if the GTW = 182 kg (400 lb) then the maximum cargo load = 386 kg (850 lb)

    To provide adequate braking and traction, always load the cargo box when trailering. Do not exceed the GTW or GVW limits.

    Avoid parking a machine with a trailer on a hill. If you must park on a hill, engage the parking brake and block the trailer tires.
