    It has nothing to do with how your grandfather's tractor starts, or anything other than the state of your current battery. Each cell's specific gravity and a load test are what would determine the ability of any battery to withstand either hot or cold weather, especially cold.
    If your fan belt is loose, less charge goes back to the battery and that can shorten it's life too. If either battery post shows signs of corrosion or the ground at the frame is poor these items can also lead to hard start/no start. Check all of the above, BEFORE buying a new battery. Also, it should be warrantied by your selling dealer for at least a years worth of use.
