    Inside a Canvas type shed, yes on the block heater, yes on the fuel treatment, and I live in New England where the lowest temp I've witnessed was -7 f. And no, the tractor wouldn't start but that was before the block heater and fuel treatment. Since adopting those two precautions it has never failed to start again.

    In a pole barn, but inside temp is same as outside temp. Gets down to 0F for 2 weeks here, will start without aids. I use powerservice in white bottle year round. Philip.

    My garage is fully insulated, but not heated. 3 stalls. 1 car, 1 suv, one for "stuff" since the daughter has the 2nd car at college. And the BX is worth twice as much. So it gets the stall. It can get to -30 here in Minnesota, but last year was hardly ever below 0 and nowhere near the max. But it was also my first year with the BX.

    Primary purchase was for snow removal vs years of beater plow trucks.
    Outside rain or shine. Never had trouble starting in extreme cold.
    kubota Orange is nice and bright but the Woods orange has gone milky on the attachments.

    ROPS prevents access to the barn and we have no Garage. Considering modifying the gambrel barn to make a better solar panel roof. That may create a place to shelter the tractor.

    Under shed roof, open sides. No block heater. If it gets below 15-20f I'm not going to be on the tractor.

    In an open front shed. Keeps weather off it. Gets in to the 20's here; not too cold. I added on to our 12x10 shed, effectively a 12' x 16' open front parking for my old kubota and old Farmall. Now the NH, a canoe, and yard tools are in there.

    Inside, I built this shed just for that purpose. It may look small, but both machines fit inside very comfortably.

    Tractor stays outside, but it has a cab, I use the block heater, and diesel treatment.
