    So, I purchased a diesel 977r deere ztm and was wondering how to winterize it. Any help would be appreciated!

    what i do for my equipment at the end of the season, change engine oil/filter, hydro oil/filter if more than 500 hours added over the season, air filter, spark plugs. grease all zerk fittings, blow off machine with blower, i never wash with water when it gets cold, fuel wise i run marine (blue) stabil in all of my fuel all year, it prevents moisture from building in the fuel which is where most of your problems come from. i never run the carb dry of fuel and havent had an issue in 10+ years doing it this way. the manual for your machine may have a more stuff you can do to it.

    i meant to add, you might need to use a diesel fuel stabilizer as i dont know if you can use marine stabil in diesel
