...which brings me to my next question alluded to by Samuel...if I do get a sub compact or compact tractor at some point what would I need to ensure it started up at 0 to -20 degrees?

 A shot of ether should get things moving on a cold morning, gas or diesel.  All of our military diesel generators were equipped with ether injection.

Diesel works by compression, no spark, the engines are a lot tougher than gas, I never had issues using ether in the military generators or trucks.

Farm Innovators makes a unit they call the Thermocube TC-3.  It plugs into a standard outlet, looks similar to a cube tap and has two outlets.  It turns on at 35F and off at 45F.  It works well with block heaters and costs less than $ 15.00.  It is available at Tractor Supply, Rural King, Home Depot, Lowes and a bunch of other places.

This will be the first year in the last dozen that we haven't sent a good portion of the winter in Mexico. Leaving for Arizona next week though so life is still good!!  Going down to about zero here tonight.

I don't know what all of the fuss is about. I fed the little missus some soup this morning, bundled her up and threw her outside with a snow shovel and told her not to come in until she was finished. I had four six foot drifts in the driveway. It was 8 degrees and blowing about 35 knots.

 

Reminded me of "Little House on the Prairie"

Hope you had a rope tied to your house so she could find her way back inside!

-9 upon dawn. Tundra still starting, but I'm buying a jump starter as a backup given this winters personality. I like a well landscaped snowscape...rough in with plow...tweak with the snowthrower and finish with elbow (shovel) grease. Warming up this week to more tolerable conditions.

-19 last week at Killington, VT on our “holiday” trip.  -9 tonight down by Cape Cod.  Not much difference as far as I’m concerned.

 

Either way, Baxter is unhappy that his paws hurt so much when he’s outside.
