I wanted to pass this on because I think it is pretty impressive. This morning my Takeuchi TB53 started. Why is that impressive. Well on the way to work this morning the temp in my pickup said 39 below zero. My 440 which was plugged in while it sat on the trailer last night by the time we got to the job site in these temps would not start. The Takeuchi which has sat in these temps. all weekend, according to the weather channel, down to 45 below started. I had to function the glow plugs twice but it started. I could not believe it. The ground heater took a sh!t and the ground was too froze to do anything with as it turned out but the TK was ready to go. I run synthetic oil in it, if that was what it was I don't know but the battery is as old as the machine is. Amazing I thought.
