Never had a problem with icing in the carb in this area. Gets cold, down to -35F on rare occasions, but the equipment starts. I use a quad to plow snow but it's the same principle. It gets parked outside under a tarp when the blade is on it for snow plowing use.

As has been suggested, lite weight oil, battery tender and heat, if needed, will make them run. Trucks and such get a heat lamp under the hood on the intake manifold for an hour or so if they are stubborn. I suspect the same heat on the cylinder of a tractor would do the job.

Things seem to start harder in cold weather with this new skunk gas we get now IMO.
