It won"t hurt to plug it in any time, but they will eat some electric,,may be some savings by having it already warmed up and keeping the cold air away from it.

Our 6410 has the grid heater in the intake. Here in Ky it works great. Does that system work well in the north. I suppose I would plug it in if it were to be below 20 degrees during the night. During bad weather, snow and ice, we keep tractors and trucks plugged in and ready to go 24hrs. Hadn't had much winter in a couple years. I personally think these power reverser tractors need a warmer on the trans oil as well as the engine. I let them set and run at least until I get a bit of heat in the cab.

I doubt if my 6410 would start at 30 degrees without being plugged in.It never did turn over very fast,even with a new battery.

Ours will fire right off down in the twenties if you use the grid heater.

There is a 4KW starter for those engines. Many more cranking rpms.

Nothing like measuring voltage at the starter while cranking. Finds all sort of strange and unexpected problems.

Electricity costs less than diesel fuel to heat an engine. The pre-warmed engine has less cold start sleeve/ring/piston wear. Less wear and tear on battery, starter and alternator too.

I agree that block heaters are great, but I'd hate to know my tractor couldn't start if the electricity was off. CAT used glow plugs and precombustion chambers way back there. And their stuff would start!

Synthetic oil is a big plus for starting diesels in winter, too. Spins over much easier and better lubrication from the cold oil...
