How cold is cold? Here in north texas the temp will sometimes get below 0 degrees. All the cold weather starting problems that I have encountered on new equipnent (up to 5 years old) have beed attributed to poor preventative mantanence. Service the battery,(check the water) keep the cables clean, tight, and properly pre-heat the glow plugs.. it will start.
For the much colder climate up north... Please consider the use of a lighter engine oil, block heaters, and put it in the barn. The owners manuel or your dealer will be able to help you there. ....

In addition to Moose's comments, use winter blend diesel. It prevents gelling and also starts easier. In real cold climates winter blend is close to straight #1. Battery blankets help spin the starter faster. Clean the battery terminals and chassis end of the ground cable. Crack the hand throttle more than usual and a compression release can help if it has one. Don't use starter fluid. ....
