No big deal there since you should already have a 50/50 mix of antifreeze in it and then the oils if you use a muti weight oil of the right weight for the weather then you good to go.

If it's a gas burner, test the anti-freeze, check the various gear cases for water in the bottom, and continue using it as usual like the rest of the year.

If it's a diesel, test the anti-freeze and park it till March.

Isn"t that the truth. The diesel isn"t going to start anyway.

We had to have the injection pump rebuilt on a International 460 diesel. The pump locked up over the winter and we broke the shaft off in the spring trying to start it.

The guy at the pump shop said to add some automatic transmission fluid to the diesl in the tractor tank and, on a warm day or two in the winter, fire it up and run it for a while. Have been kind of doing that since. That pump rebuild was over $600.
