300 in the cold

Postby ShawnAgne » Mon Nov 13, 2017 7:08 am

Used my 300 yesterday to pull my wagon down to pick up a step ladder that was my great great grandfathers. Started it up but just seemed to run a little rougher than usual. Since it was in the mid 30s and I'm running 15-40W motor oil should I just let it warm up a little more before I use it?

I don't think the 15W-40 is an issue. I find in colder weather the Cubs and my H like to run for a bit before being used. Five minutes makes a big difference. Ten and they are like summer time. Kind of like me, I don't jump straight out of bed on a cold morning and go straight to work. Move around a little and get all the kinks out, maybe have a cup of coffee, listen to the radio for the weather, then set to work. I figure the tractors are the same way, let them wake up, warm up, and get their bearings (lubed :roll: :lol: )
