DIVISION I - SAFETY

This vehicle is not a toy and can be hazardous to operate.

NOTE: To view important safety information, please log on to www.toro.com/en-us/safety (USA) or www.toro.com/en-ca/safety (Canada).

Always go slowly and be extra careful when operating on unfamiliar terrain. Always be alert to changing terrain conditions when operating this vehicle.

Never operate on excessively rough, slippery, or loose terrain.

Always follow proper procedures for turning as described in this manual. Practice turning at slow speeds before attempting to turn at faster speeds. Do not turn at excessive speed.

Always have the vehicle checked by an authorized Toro ROV dealer if it has been involved in an accident.

Never operate on hills too steep for your abilities. Practice on smaller hills before attempting larger hills.

Always follow proper procedures for climbing hills as described in this manual. Check the terrain carefully before you start up any hill. Never climb hills with slippery or loose surfaces. Never depress the accelerator suddenly or make gear changes while moving. Never go over the top of any hill at high speed.

Always follow proper procedures for going down hills and for braking on hills as described in this manual. Check the terrain carefully before you start down any hill. Never go down a hill at high speed. Avoid going down a hill at an angle which would cause the vehicle to lean sharply to one side. Go straight down the hill where possible.

Always be careful when you decide to climb or descend a hill and never turn on a hill. Drive straight up or down inclines and not across them. If you must cross the side of a hill, drive slowly and stop or turn downhill if you feel the vehicle may tip over.

Always use proper procedures if you stall or roll backward when climbing a hill. To avoid stalling, maintain a steady speed when climbing a hill. If you stall or roll backwards, follow the special procedure for braking described in this manual.

Always check for obstacles before operating in a new area. Never attempt to operate over large obstacles, such as large rocks or fallen trees. Always follow proper procedures when operating over obstacles as described in this manual.

Always be careful of skidding or sliding. On slippery surfaces, such as ice, go slowly and be very cautious in order to reduce the chance of skidding or sliding out of control.

Never operate this vehicle in fast flowing water or in water deeper than the floorboard. Wet brakes may have reduced stopping capability. Test your brakes after leaving water. If necessary, apply them lightly several times to let friction dry out the pads.

Always be sure there are no obstacles or people behind you when you operate in reverse. When it is safe to proceed in reverse, look behind you and go slowly. Avoid turning at sharp angles in reverse.

Always use the size and type tires specified in this manual. Always maintain proper tire pressure as described in this manual.

Never improperly install or improperly use accessories on this vehicle.

Never exceed the stated load capacity for this vehicle. Cargo should be properly distributed and securely attached. Reduce speed and follow instructions in this manual for carrying cargo or pulling a trailer and allow greater distance for braking.

Operation of this vehicle is restricted to people 16 years of age and older who possess a valid driver’s license. Passengers must be able to place both feet flat on the floor while keeping their back against the back of the seat and the outboard passenger must hold on to the hand hold.

! WARNING

*Never operate this vehicle with the cargo box lifted or removed.

*Never operate this vehicle in fast flowing water or in water deeper than the floorboard.

*Never operate this vehicle with the ROPS removed. The ROPS provides a structure helping to limit intrusions by branches or other objects and may reduce your risk of injury in accidents.

*Never put your hands or feet outside the vehicle for any reason while the vehicle is in motion. Do not hold onto the ROPS or hip restraint bar. If you think or feel the vehicle may tip, do not put your hands or feet outside the vehicle as they will not be able to prevent the vehicle from tipping. Any part of your body (arms, legs, or head) outside the vehicle can be crushed by passing objects, the vehicle, or ROPS.
