Was running my 2601 yesterday letting it warm up for about 5 minutes before moving some buckets of firewood up to the house, it was 40 degrees and I only shut tractor off when unloading the wood. This took about 60 minutes and I noticed the temperature gauge was barely off the cold mark. During the summer the gauge would always move to the center of the gauge. My question is how long does it take for these tractors to warm up to normal operating temperature during mildly cold outdoor temps? I realize that I was not working the tractor hard or the upper RPM range. My concern is also not getting engine oil hot enough to burn off any condensation. I do not use the tractor for snow removal so it does not see much extended running time in cold weather. This is my second winter owning the tractor.
