Cold starting

Im going to plow snow this weekend, but i am i little worried about the cold weather here. Have not been using my prowler the last couple of weeks, and it has been like -5 to -10 farenheit everyday. Also probably something like that tomorrow when im supposed to fire it up.
So, do you guys think that is too cold? 0-40 oil in it.

0/40 should be fine, just let it warm up before doing anything! I use the same oil during the winter also. I let mine idle for about 5 minutes, then it is good to go!

I keep mine on a battery tender and have no issues starting in below zero (F) temps. Like Farimont said just make sure it gets warm before you start pushing snow.

I was just thinking about winter! While redoing the turn signals I thought about rigging up something higher on the front bumper so on coming traffic could see my signals. The plow blocks the signals but not sure it's worth the hassle no more than it gets used.
