 cold weather and TC35D

I want to buy a TC35D but I live in northern NY and have been told that others have had problems warming up their Hydrostatic Transmision. Have any of you had problems with your Hydrostatic Trans in very cold weather, like "needs 30 minutes to get the oil warm enough so you can move". Or noisy transmission and very sluggish when below 10 degrees? Would this cause problems/damage to the transmision? Please send your observations. Thanx Frank

 cold weather and TC35D

Frank, I'm also in upstate NY and agree that this is something you really want to check out. Since my tractor is up in the Adirondacks between Plattsburgh and Saranac Lake, I wanted to be sure I bought a machine that would start and run well in the cold. What I did was go to two different dealers first thing on a cold morning (4 defrees F with wind) a year ago in January and ask to start up a tractor that was outdoors, preferably with last week's snow still on it. I didn't try all the brands this way because I had already narrowed my first choice to a JD4400. The 4400 on both lots started immediately with only 5 seconds on the pre-heater (no glow plugs on this model). I bought my 4400 in April and have since kept it in an unheated garage. It goes several weeks between use in the winter, but has started and ran great in below 0 (F) weather to clear snow this year. (see photo link below) I warm it up for about 5 minutes in the cold. I also have a block heater but haven't needed to bother with it yet. I have heard that other models and brands don't behave nearly as well in cold weather, but that is only hearsay, so take it with a grain of salt. Even if the model you want doesn't like cold weather, you can probably reduce the problem with synthetic motor oil and hydraulic fluid.

Frank, I have a TC40D and I have had some question over the fact that my tractor doesn't warm up when it is cold. The gauge only registers part of the way to the green. It does run well with a few minutes of warm up though. I think anything with cold oil is going to act differently than when it is warm. Hydro's included. I have not read anyone post that their tractor has had to warm up for 30 minutes before it will move. Certainly not mine.

Thanks, Michigander. I was inspired by the photo on page 9 of the 2000 Boomer sales brochure.

 cold weather and TC35D

Frank,
I live in Minnesota and have a block heater on my Cub 7275. I use it all the time and would not be without one. Diesels CAN start in cold but its so much easier on them if they are warm up first. I have an outside timer on electrical cord and it comes in early in am and tractor ready to go when I am. I have not had any trouble with hydro unless super cold. 20 below stuff. Then just stiff for a few minutes. We have had tons of snow this year and tractor and loader (Have a 7' Lorenz blower too) have been a huge asset. Just ask my neighbors!
Well gotta go, big storm coming again this weekend. Supposed to get another foot or better of the white stuff. Regards PJ Drew

I wonder if the HST problem was solved? I didn't comment since I don't know much about the tractor of HST's. However, I do wonder if the tractor may be using standard weight petro hydraulic oil. Many people in cold areas go the a synthetic, or at least a multi-season petro oil year around due to the cold winters. I use multi-season petro oil in my gear tractor, and I still use magnetic heaters on the sump when it's real cold. My owner’s manual doesn’t mention either of these things.
