Thanks for the suggestion.. I'm going with one of the cheap China diesel heaters.. 8K unit.. 4 port out put..

It will heat up that cab like it's Florida.. They sip fuel and can be dumped externally..

I can use the built in tank or feed it from the main tank..

For the cost and ease of installing it, certainly hard to beat.. I can set the thermostat and just leave it..

With a unit that uses the radiator water the block heater would have to be left on all the time..

Something like this..

I am not a fan of winter, working out in it for the last 34 years and spending about 4 to 5hrs each snow storm in the cold..

Winter is the hardest season after all this time.

So plowing needs to have heat..

I agree the only thing worse than plowing on a grader at -20 F and no heat is plowing on a tractor without even a winterfront .

+1. I used to plow our 1/2 mile driveway, and the landlords place with a Harry Furgeson TO20 tractor, no cab, but at least the 3 point hitch snowblower was one that you drove forward with. Bad part of that was you tended to pack the snow down before blowing it.


When I turned 17, I think I bought my first plow truck from a friends dad. A 1975 dodge power wagon. It was a great upgrade.

I never even considered you (or anyone else) using a heater like that on a machine,motorhome guys use them all the time,so i do know about them.
My shop has zero heat,if its cold i watch youtube!
Of course we wear shorts all year,so cold is 30 degrees to us.
One of my customers tried a heater like you posted,i think it was too noisy or something (for a house on wheels),maybe not so much on a machine.
