Zippo Gasser would light right off, every time, first try. The guy lives in North Dakota and he wants a loader tractor he can use every day in winter. The only way to do that reliably with a diesel is to let it run all winter, which is what the germans did on the eastern front in WWII (The Big One). They let their engines run from November thru March.

I live in Manitoba Canada thats a place a little more north of North Dakota for those that believe the world stops at the 49th parallel L.O.L. It hits 40 oc below up here. we only run diesels here on our farm. Like I Said with my gas tractor in my collection it uses twice or more than the same tractor with diesel. we plug our diesels in and warm them up 2 hours before we need it with a timer in the morning. Go do chores and as long as we don't leave them shut off for 2 or 3 hours outside while doing chores they usually start or if its at the barn for half a day not running plug it in so it starts to go home again. The electric is a lot cheaper than the gas and then have a good useful tractor, That's worth something if needed.
Regards Robert

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Don't tell anybody around here that you can't use a diesel tractor in the winter. I use a diesel tractor/truck/skidsteer/other misc equipment everyday in the winter and don't feel the need to leave it running for 6 months. When properly maintained and preheated they have all started when asked even at -50*.....

And heck it might be cheaper to leave the diesel running all winter compared to using a gasser tractor for any type of heavy work. hahaha

The recommendation was for a JD4020. Have you checked prices on 4020s? Gas and diesel? You can buy a lot of gas with the money you'll save buying a gasser over a diesel and no need to monkey with pre-heating. I've been farming in weather as bad and as cold as it gets for the last seventy years and I could probably provide everyone with a few cold weather tips so just calm down. (;>))
