I guess, even though it may not be totally necessary, i will continue to do what i have always done.....let my iron warm up and "cool" down.

I 100% agree on warming equipment up even in warmer weather. Cooling it down will not hurt anything at all and I would treat it just like you paid for it.

I always warm up and cool down. My Kobelco 135SR has the warm-up feature to help get the hydraulics warmed up, that helps a lot in cold weather. In the summer I still let it warm up a little, i might grease up or walk around and look the site over. When cooling down, might grease up, pick up shovels sweep the floor, wash windows....what ever....but the equipment gets a few minutes to cool down.

Same here! Only thing I cool down would be turbo diesel. All gas stuff is just idled down and shutoff.
