    Default Oil Pan Heater

    I have a 2210 that I would like to install oilpan heater made by Pro Heat Products. You stick it to the bottom of the pan once it is clean.
    Does anyone have any experience with this product?

    Look into getting a magnet mount heater instead. That way you can use it on the engine block, or oil pan, or use to thaw frozen pipes, or other vehicles around your property. I have used the the Katz heaters in the past and they are awesome. Auto Parts, Motorcycle Parts, Car Parts, Truck Accessories & Parts, Auto Accessories - JC Whitney Search engine heaters. Same price and more versatile than a permanent mount style. Or just check your local auto parts store.

    I have tried the Katz magnetic heater. It will work great if you remember to take it off before using the tractor. I just unplugged mine the first time I used it. Fortunately I had the cord zip tied to the loader hoses because when I parked the tractor I found the pan heater hanging by the cord. I still have the mag heater but don't use it. I went with the inline lower hose heater also made by Katz. You drain the radiator and cut out a small section of the lower hose then clamp in the inline heater with hose clamps, refill and zip tie the cord. This keeps the engine coolant at a nice 140 deg. making for easy starts.
    I drape the extension cord through the steering wheel before plugging in my lower hose heater. That way I don't drive off without unplugging. (Don't ask me how I know this)

    I wanted to use the magnetic heater to warm the hydostat, then I realized it was made of aluminum. :O I have a block heater in my 2210, it starts like a 90 degree summer day no matter how cold it is.

    Go for the block heater or an inline heater.
