Just thought I'd say "Hi" and let you know I love reading the posts.
I dreamed for years about getting a Bolens Iseki, and this summer made it happen, got a clean G152 with a 48" deck and 48" back blade. I'm thinking about a blower on the front but and having reservations about the diesel in cold weather. The garage is not heated so it would have to start in cold weather.
So how about it, you guys with an Iseki, how is the starting below 20 F and down to below zero?
So far this thing seems to be a bit cold blooded.
Toward the snowblower end, I also commited to buying a Bolens/Troy Bilt GTX 20 that also has a 48" mower and a 48" blower. I was thinking large frame but wanted to get something as new as possible to maybe avoid overhauling it before using it.
