Hello! I was wondering if any of you use a block heater on your tractors in the winter. I found a magnet block heater made by Zerostart part number 340-0017 that fits on the bottom of my TRA-10D in my 1050 and makes engine start like its summer. It also saves wear and tear on the engine. Steve...........:wave:

Welcome! That sounds like a good idea, especially in the colder/snowier areas.
