Yesterday for the first time I took my 224 Case out in the winter and pushed snow with it. I was surprised at what it could do with the front mounted dozer blade. No weights, no chains I was able to push quite a pile of snow. It was lots of fun. Here's my question. If I was to regularly use this machine in the winter, what oil is recommended for the engine (14hp one cylinder Kohler) and could/should I put thinner oil in the hydraulic system? I ask this because I had a hard time getting it started. It doesnt turn over very well, in fact in summer it already kinda barely turns over. I understand that these call for thick oil in hydraulic system (15w40 engine oil) and dont work well in summer with thinner oil. What about winter? Guess I'd have to change it in spring again?
