hello Im in Michigan and i just bought a 2210. Since its July its starts easy but how do they start during the cold months? I know most of us dont want to think of winter yet, but if there is something i need to do to the tractor I would rather do it now while its still warm . Im sure Im not the only one that gets coldarsfloor-aphobia during the winter months. lol Thanks

minis,

I have used my 2210 at temps down to -5F or so. Our tractors have a cold starting system (not really a glow plug though it works in a similar fashion) that isn't listed in the owners manual. What you need to do, is put the tractor in gear or pull out the pto, then turn the key all the way to the right. You will hear a click and see the gauges dim. You can do this for a few seconds up to twenty. Then take the tractor out of gear (or push in the pto knob) and then start your tractor. I even use this in the warm months as the tractor starts better. :)

I didn't put the block heater on mine and I use the same method as JDF without any problems. A block heater is nice to have for the winter and cold weather. Keep your fuel tank topped off, use your additive of choice so moisture doesn't get in your tank and keep your fuel filter clean. slkpk

Ive started up older JD 855's (similar yanmar engine design to the new JD compact ute's) in temps way below freezing...no problems, FWIW.

What helpful site. JDF you know I had to run out to the garage (like a kid on Christmas morning) and try that starting technique. I barely turned the key and it fired right up. Great tips, the 2210 is still a little new to me, so I appreciate any info or tips like that. Just joined the site and it feels like I been part of the group for years. :thanku: for the warm welcome

minis,

You're welcome! :) I don't know why Deere doesn't include this in the owner's manual. It's not just the 2210, but all the models up to the direct injection ones. Go figure.

Not really,

The 2320 you just turn the key to the on position and the glow plugs come on for 3 sec. That is in the manual and it works very well even with our -30 days of course the block heater is on as well at those temps.

Interesting!!

Seems to me from the diagrams of my 2305 ... it has glow plugs!

Very Interesting!!!

Seems to me from experience that on my 2305 when I turn the key on the "glow plugs" come on for 3 seconds!!

Very Interesting!!!

P.S. May be, just may be, I got one of the "cold weather" models down here in SC; minis must have a "hot weather" model!

stretch,

I guess saskman answered that. I'm not sure about the flux capacitor though. :)

:ditto: When you turn the key on the 2305 the idiot lights dim for 3 seconds, then you hear a click, then turn the key to start.:greendr:

Interesting. That is a change on the 2305 that I wasn't aware of. I'm pretty sure this wasn't the case with the earlier models. Anyway, at least Deere does reference it now. :)
