  • You sure do a good job of anticipating questions and henceforth answering them, Mike!

    • Thanks! I just think of questions that I would ask 🙂

  • Have you ever tried a Valtra?

  • In germany i jump on my tractor and it running

  • 추운나라는이동식 발전기가 필수 있겠네요.

  • which type of coolant used in fendt?

  • I never have that problem with my 700s, I can start them in minis 20 with out plugging them in.

  • It's not Fendts special cord, it's a European cord.

  • Looks like Calix cable. European stuff.

  • Check the air filter as mind a foam piece of rubbish fell to pieces and it’s only used occasionally

  • -20 and wont start without preheating? Valtra starts in -30 without preheating...

  • What definition is kinda cold :-) ? How cold ?

  • Did you get your 100,000 subscriber silver play button yet. You can get it through the DEname studio.

  • Mike you need to demo new John Deere 9r 640 hp

  • Great video Mike

  • giver a little cosby consent in a can and it should be good to go

  • This is what you should do with your empty bags! dename.info/film/tpBmpK-7qWihZYs/video And here's another. dename.info/film/0bieemfGtGuJiIM/video

  • tim to get a valtra tractor

  • Or a very good ford tractor

  • For a new tractor Mitchell why you buy not a versatile tractor

  • My deutz fahr is a great starter even though it doesn't get as cold as -25

  • Note to self, don't buy any used Fendts from Swift lol.

  • You walk by it with an ice cream cone and it won’t start.

  • As old zip ties n bias plies said just give her some Cosby in a can and pin it to redline

  • Either Mike

  • Fendt is proving itself time and again that I would not want to own one. Those things are a joke.

    • @farm.central. ohio haha oh me too buddy the amount of money we pay for this stuff it should nearly be fool proof! Most of all our issues arise from def related!

    • @Mike Mitchell Thanks for your reply Mike and understanding that I'm not brand bashing. We have 4 different brands of tractors on our farm and some days I hate them all lol. You are correct with it depends on your application. I guess I'm an older school kind of guy, I just want the thing to work and not break down when I need it :)

    • Just depends on your application and which tractor, the 1050 is my personal favorite and the 720 I really enjoy, it just isn't the best winter starter. Come summer, and ur in the fields working, they pretty dang nice 🤷🏼‍♂️🙂

  • Should have pointed the exhaust from the generator under the tractor when you left, doubt it would have done much but couldn't hurt.

  • Hey Mike. Why don't you put winter oils and blankets on your tractor to winterize it? Not worth the cost?

  • Should have put the generator under the engine of the tractor, heat from the exhaust would at least warm the engine oil a little.

  • So- WHY did you leave the worst-starting tractor you own parked out on the Arctic tundra overnight for that particular task?? 🤔 Just askin'...

    • Haha that's just how it worked out this time I guess 🤷🏼‍♂️😂

  • and that right there is why in this hp range I prefer the massey incarnation with the Sisu engine.

  • Mike a question for your next video. Whats your thoughts on the new electric vehicle craze? Think there will ever be electric tractors and combines

  • Hi Mike. I genererly figure min 3-4 hrs plugged in when it's that cold. Thanks for the vid.

  • Yeah he's pretty good at that

  • How are you liking the Duramax (Chevy) so far?

  • I watch your videos and I was wondering when I might get to chime in, so here goes! The next time you want to start a cold Honda generator you will need a tarp like the kind you can buy anywhere at a tractor supply store, say a blue one. Take the generator over to a vehicle, say your truck, or it could be a car. Set the generator about 2 feet from the exhaust. Pull the tarp over the side of the truck box and tuck the tarp around the truck exhaust making sure it does not come into contact with that hot exhaust. Then wrap the tarp around the generator creating a tunnel of hot exhaust blowing into that generator. Move the tarp around so as not to melt the tarp to the truck exhaust or any of the plastic that covers the generator. Let your truck or vehicle idle inside that tarp for about 20 minutes to a half hour. That generator or snowblower or whatever will start up like it’s summertime. Make sure you always treat your fuel with sea foam and use premium fuel. I treat mine 1 ounce to the gallon. You could also use this same technique on that Tractor if your tarp was big enough.😀 I was the owner of a landscape, lawn care, snow plowing and snow removal business. This trick worked for me when the temp was 30 below and the wind chill factor was 50 below.All of my equipment stayed exposed to the elements, only being they were covered with a tarp to keep the snow off of them. I used all Honda equipment. Thanks, take care and stay safe😀

  • Hi Mike, It may have already been answered, but wouldn't a small amount of ether spray into the air inlet make the diesel air mixture ignite much more easily saving batteries and starter ?

  • Needs a pan heater

  • Only use premium fuel in small engines.

  • I really really like your content. I would like to see the bag being baled also LOL

  • It's a honda 😀

  • Next time using the generator points exhaust At the oil pan

  • I think i have put on more miles watching this channel. 🤪

  • Glow plugs when cold, triple heat them, I.e. turn ignition on, wait for glow plug light to go out, immediately turn off and on again, wait for glow plug light to go out, then repeat again, soon as light goes out - no delay try to start straight away. Key is getting the cylinder hot so it starts.

  • Damn, you’d think Fendt would be better than that.

  • How many km on your pickup now?

  • at 9-00 PERKINS engine best there is used all over the world my caravanette had one lorry had one and the tractor went for years body rotted PERKINS still running took it down scrape yard bloke had the engine out before we left he wanted that for 40 ft boat RAY UK ENGLAND.

  • How is anything stiff at that temperature.😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

  • Obviously your not the boss. Who is the money man and really runs the farming operations. You wouldn't be making videos if you were in charge?

    • 😬 I actually I am... Myself, and my two other brothers (one younger and one older) we run the farm and have equal share.

  • 👍👍👍👍

  • Need a ALP ginerator runs only on LP starts every time runs 50 hours on a standard bottle but only 1000w.😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞

  • They say you're insane if you talk to yourself and answer yourself, but we will just say MIKE is the Master. hehehe..

  • The first code 1D.1.0C is for the preheater, that would have help a lot, call your dealer is on warranty.

  • would a case or jd start at -20 without being pluged in ?

    • Completely depends on what model or engine they have..for example we had a John Deere 7210R tractor, and it was just as bad as the 720 fendt - maybe worse.

  • Mike can you also show how you use the front loader?

  • My son inlaw has 8 fendts dam good tractor but a bear to start when cold.

  • Make sure you have the lever on the gas to on. I have the same generator and it will quite in about 1 or 2 minutes.

  • Take a battery charger with you and run it on the generator and warm up the battery while you warm the tractor.

    • Our tractor has an integrated battery charger which takes care that the battery is fully charged before every start after being heated with electricity. Starter kicks on like a 🐎

  • It is cheaper to use a couple of liters of petrol to heat the tractor, than to start it cold with all that entails in the form of extra wear and tear on both the engine and the other components.

  • Those little Honda Gen's are great for a lot of things including camping and are very light weight -- around 50 lbs.

    • @Bill Silversides --- If you are worried that 1000 watts isn't enough then get the EU2200i EU2200iTAG 2200 watt 120V inverter generator with CO-MINDER™ 4.7 Runs for 3-8 hours on 1 Gallon of gasoline (depending on load) (220) Write a review Ideal for TV, DVD, satellite, fridge, coffee pot, & more Super quiet & lightweight (48 lbs dry weight) Inverter - stable power Honda My Generator app + Bluetooth® capability CO-MINDER: advanced carbon monoxide detection system

    • @Bowhunters V836840934 Engine Block Heater 1000W 120V Agco Massey Ferguson Fendt Tractors

    • @Bill Silversides ---- The smallest one that Honda makes (model E1000) is rated at 1000 watts maximum @ 120volts , some other small Honda Gen's are rated at around 1200 - 1300 watts max. Depending on the model they will run for around 3 hours at heavy load and up to 6-8 hours on a light load.

    • But will they heat an 850 watt block heater? It didn't sound to me like it was working hard enough.

  • How flat and straight the roads are over there never cease to amaze me!

  • My grandfather always carried a small crecent wrench like that it's amazing how useful they can be

  • Synthetic 5W40? What does Fendt/dealer put in? If it has 15W40 in it that's a ton of extra work for the starter. On our trucks 5W40 gives us 75 more RPM during starting below - 18C. Helps!

  • Why not buy a few more rigs and hire more drivers during harvest?

    • Ok I did not think of that.the old trucker in me was thinking of the driving cost.andbi could see it paying.but you reminded me of a few things I forgot

    • @Brian Rutherford the return on investment wouldn't be that good actually, it would prb take around 25yrs of grain bags to pay those trucks off.. Not counting the guys to drive them

    • Yes I understand that.but with the lose of crops using the bags would it not make sense to buy one or two rigs instead?

    • Because there's many wants and only so much money to go around 😂🤷🏼‍♂️

  • The loneliest road I ever rode on was From Medicine Hat to Havre MT. Even the Yukon and Alaska didn’t seem any less populated.

  • MAN engines are basically from their truck/semi line of engines adapted to tractors and other machines. It is the reason they have lower top RPM as they are designed for max torque and HP under 2000 RPM, but they last a long time. I worked with a road milling machine that had two MAN 600 HP engines in tandem and the whistle of turbines was sweeeet.

  • You need to wash your pickup Mike

  • Would be nice if they could invent a Universal Plug that’s fits all , great Video 👍🏼

  • Man....that's looks cold!! Some operation to start the fendt!

  • Thanks Mike!

  • It’s too cold for the Machinery Mike, adiós amigo ✌🏻✌🏻✌🏻✌🏻

  • Good morning Mike.. Brr.. Cold.. Thank you for the ride along ❤️ shares my lunch time orange with viewers.. Adios 😊

  • Morning

  • You Need to buy a valtra you have no problems with starting wen it is cold 😉I promaise

  • Mike , your Fendt is full of birdsh*t!😂

  • Just another reason not to buy fendt. 🤣 Our Masseys always start. Even if it's - 5 F. Actually it's not the fendt part I dislike, it's the deutz thing. No deutz for me...

    • @deutz450 yup. I really like the Agco/sisu engines. I just don't understand why they wouldn't put them in the fendts too

    • They start good since there are Sisu/Agco Engines in it. Perkins Engines never liked cold weather...

  • Cold weather and starting equipment can be a real problem. Nice job rolling that bag up! You take care.

  • Jared talks too much. 😁

  • Honestly, I'm a little surprised that tractor was that difficult to start. According to Google, -25C is -13F, which isn't awfully cold in the scheme of things. We got down to about that here a couple of weeks ago, and granted, the highs were up around 10F (-12C), but the tractors fired up just fine so long as the block heaters were plugged in. One or two cranks and they'd fire on all cylinders right away. Definitely glad we don't deal with it on a regular basis, though. That was an anomaly down here.

    • The Difference between -12°C and -25°C is night and day, but i agree, it starts surprisingly bad. I own the great-grandfather of this tractor, a 1969 Fendt Farmer 3S, it starts at -20°C after glowing, without preheating or things like that (preheaters not very common in germany).

  • Mike's #DDE all day everyday...love ya

  • maybe german technique doesn't like such cold ;-) greets from Germany

  • Got two cresent wrenches smaller than that, although we call them shifters, as in shifting spanner.

    • YEP i got one for my model making goes down to zero and out to 6mm 100 mm in lengh best 4 dollers worth i bought.

    • we call them shifters or adjustables

  • pure canadian weater

  • my crescent gets that small when its - 25c

  • y u not buy go pro???

    • i have also a tractor but is menual gers and and tractor HP is 40

    • @Mike Mitchell i am from India and love u ♥️♥️♥️

    • thanks for replying bro but we will she how u drive tractor when u work

    • I have one, and don't like them

  • South Sask Farmer has a short loop in one of their remotes that when it's cold, once you start the tractor turn on that remote and it circulates the hydraulic fluid.

    • We have an older air cooled tractor, which uses hydraulic fluid for heating. So it has an adjustable valve on the pump, and if you close it to some extent it helps the oil warm up quicker by restricting flow. Point I'm trying to make is that it'll build up more heat if there's some restriction in the loop 🤔

  • Bonus footage if you hang out beyond the first good bye!

  • What was the reason for having the battery off at 5:25

    • @RAY pitts there are vehicles now that, even if the key is out, it still uses battery power. Like some modern cars you can charge your phone with the engine off and key removed.

    • take keys out then nothing can be left on also fit master switches use them cuts draining battery problems also stops the auguring of who left it on.

    • In case anything was left on to drain the battery down

  • Imagine having to use a proprietary powercable in 2021. I bet they also break when you look at them funny like every cable Apple produces ?

  • You didn’t bring your down hill skis to use on the newly created pile of snow to entertain yourself as tractor was warming up ! 😂⛷🎿🤣

  • Have you ever tarped your equipment when it’s out in the vast wide open. It would help a lot I’m sure.

  • Why wasn't that bag rolled by the grain extractor?

    • @Anstrom Wally i though after you rolled the bag you just slide it out rolled and start with a new bag. heh, who designed this thing.

    • Yes it rolls the bag onto a drum, but to do another bad you have to remove the first bag, 2 bags don’t fit on extractor, roll it up to unroll it when done is annoying & engineered mistake to me. The option is available but then doubles or close to it for the extractor, high dollar option that many don’t want to pay for it.

  • excellent explanations Mike, thank you

  • I understand the purpose of using bags when they first came out but, I am a old farmer. Everybody should have to work on a farm for a couple years just to get a little idea of the work involved.

  • Hey Mike, have You had any problem with DEF systems due to cold weather?

  • A retired diesel engineer from the armed forces told me that once you have your diesel started for 5-10 mins, the best is to put them under a light load until it is warmed up. Letting it run for 30+mins does not make sense

    • Same advice for a gasoline engine. Read your owners manual on anything newer than about 1960. Start them, run till it is idling smoothly and drive moderately until up to operating temperature. Obviously if you are hooked to a load or have to immediately plow snow or mud or go up a steep hill you need a bit of idle warm-up. When the windows are frosted or iced that needs removal. Various ways to do that but the hardest on the engine is to run it till the heater/defroster removes the ice.

  • that bag sure did a lot bigger compared to when it was new out the box, farmers really can grow everything

  • Would you think about running it thro the night?

    • big bad locomotives do tick over between shifts.

  • Im from Spain and i love when you said adiós amigos ♥️

  • Them honda EU generators are nice.

  • We run espar heaters on our tractors, no generator required.

    • He normally has a Webasto on that tractor. They have been the North American standard since Northern oil exploration days.
