Look for a minimum wire gauge of 14 and four 150 foot cords and a minimum 12 gauge rated extension cord. Never use an extension cord over 150 feet. Make sure the cord is rated 14 gauge or lower and for best performance, Toro does not recommend stringing together multiple cords.
Extension cords can overheat and cause fires when used improperly. Overheating is usually caused by overloading or connecting appliances that consume more watts than the cord can handle. Damaged extension cords can also cause fires. Extension cords should only be used temporarily.
This odor could indicate an overheated blower motor. Blower motors commonly overheat due to clogged air filters. Check yours, and if it`s disgusting swap it out and let the blower motor cool off for a short time before turning the system back on.

To show you how the formula works in real life, here are some common items and the recommended extension cord size for each. Use a 16-gauge light-duty cord for any outdoor appliance that uses 12 amps or fewer. This typically includes snow blowers, leaf blowers, circular saws, and air compressors.
As a general rule, anything that provides heat, like a hair dryer or space heater needs a ton of power. Usually, it`s not safe to plug those into an extension cord at all.
Using an extension cord with too small a gauge of wire for the current draw will cause the wire and cord to heat up! This can lead to melting of receptacles, damage to your electrical device (and could potentially cause an electrical fire).
Turning off the circuit breaker is a good place to begin because it will keep your smoking outlet problem from getting worse. Go to your circuit breaker and turn off the breaker for the area where smoke is coming from. If you are not sure, you can just turn off all the breakers to your house.

I have a Toro 51598 electric leaf blower. Last year a breaker in the electrical box tripped and the blower naturally stopped. But, the episode seemed to have damaged the variable-air-flow-dial which on the blower – it was either on or off, nothing inbetween worked. This year, after some solid hours of operation, it just stopped working regardless of where where the variable-air-flow-dial was set. It is worth replacing that variable-air-flow-dial and some related components, or is there likely something else wrong with it? The bushings seem fine.
These machines are considered “disposable” items and most service centers won’t even repair them, saying that it is not “cost effective.” I have never come across a parts list for one other than maybe the plastic housing on them (they may exist), but costwise you may be better off getting another tool unless the Toro is still under warranty.
Why won’t my toro 6.5 gts start after taking blade offand replaceing it?
From flipping the mower on it’s side the top of the cylinder gets slightly flooded with crankcase oil. A good priming and a few extra pulls on the starter cord is usually necessary after this type of maintenance. You’ll see a few extra puff of oil smoke upon starting. This burns off in less than a minute.
I bought a Toro ultra electric blower vac (model 51599 a year ago but never used it. Now that I need to use it I can’t find what I did with the instructions. What do I have to do to attach the vacuum bag?
Common sense tells me it is not that hard you probably do not need an instruction manual, does life come with a instruction manual O Yeah the Bible. Believe in yourself review the situation, think it over you can do it!!!!!!!!!
Snow blower wont start
Clean the fuel out and the carb , make sure you are getting spark close the choke to start then shut if off or it will foul the plug
Poulan gas blower 30 c back pack blower ran fine stoped will not start no spark
Check switch is bad if not coil bad if not getting spark
My timecutting z420 won’t start. No sound when I turn the key.
If the battery is good, then you could have a bad key switch or something in the wiring is making bad contact. And if all that is ok, then it is the starter. I’n not sure but there might be a fuse somewhere. Check for that first.
My Toro Super Blower works fine & then I notice smoke at the cord
