It can not only save on your energy costs but also reduce wear on the engine
by RALPH WINFIELD
Many of us need to start diesel tractors for routine tasks around the farm, such as livestock feeding or snow removal in colder weather.
In these conditions, there is no question about the desirability of preheating the engine block or coolant prior to starting the engine. A warm engine starts more quickly with less wear to engine components, especially when the lubricating oil is also warm. For warming oil a magnetic heater can also be attached to the oil pan.
