    Default Cold starts

    I'm wondering how well the Kioti's in general but especially the DS4510, start in the cold. Depending on where I am working, I might not be able to plug it in, and I need it to start in the cold(0 deg F and colder).

    I haven't tried to start my DK40se in zero degree weather but in the 20's it starts immediately after two preheat cycles. Never tried it with the usual one cycle at temps below freezing.

    Minus 15 to 20 Celsius no problem...

    I use diesel conditioner and only toggle the glow plugs once.

    Haven't decided yet......It'll be a Kioti None the less

    They start fine in the cold.
    The DS 4110 and 4510 have manual glow plugs.
    There is an optional glow plug timer kit that makes them like the other models.
