Hey Joey, how come you Canadians are hogging up all the cool weather, haha? It got down to about -10c here in middle Alaska one night, but has been just above or just below freezing for the last month. We're just now getting snow that will stay all winter. I see about 8 inches on my patio table, so as soon as it stops I'll put the snow blade on my old home grown loader/forklift and clean out my driveways.
Nice to have that Ranger in a building so you can get some heat on it. Are you using synthetic oil?

we are finally getting around to work on the Linn Tractor #2. we pulled the welding sleigh (46 chevy 3 ton) along front and whipped up a steel winter front since this linn's went missing before I acquired it. the diesel power heater makes it nice to work at -16c. thansk

yes the ranger 8 starts good inside the box and when and used a 24 hour a day generator it heats all the oils and tools in the box too which is nice.

Must take about a month for the paint to cure in those temps.
