Help I have a diesel gator and anyone who has one knows they wont start when the weather get cold,[those freese plug heaters that deere sells are not what i want] and if someone can help with a better mouse trap it would make me very happy.The heating pad is going to break me $$$$ thanks jim

JDK is right freeze plug heaters are the way to go. I've got an old Mercedes diesel car, if we plug the heater in on a cold morning in 20 minutes it'll have the temp gauge off the peg. Thats on a 400w heater in a 4 cyl 2.4l engine.
The best thing about using the heater on that is that the heat comes on in the car as soon as you pull out of the driveway!

First ??,why not the freeze plug heater?It would be the most efficient and effective.Although JD prolly gets an arm and a leg.Check at NAPA or other auto parts store for same wattage and diameter or for a inline"hose heater",Their catalogs prolly list the Gator if its a known problem.
