How To Start A Tractor In Cold Weather
There are a lot of different ways to start a tractor in extremely cold weather. Fett says hes tried them all and nothing works as well as the method he came up with.
  I mounted a metal ring on three adjustable-height legs. The ring is just the right size to hold a large heat lamp. I adjust the legs so the lamp is about 1/2 in. from the oil pan on the tractor and then turn it on. Whats great about this idea is that it not only warms up the oil but also the entire engine compartment.
  It doesnt cost much to run and you can adjust the height to any tractor. Ive used it on Deere, Moline and White tractors. Works better than any plug-in heater Ive ever tried, and its a lot safer than a pan of hot coals.
