Recommended Engine Oil Heater for Grasshopper Mower with 36HP Engine


I have a 36hp big block engine hard to crank in cold weather will this product work to warm hydraulics and engine oil


Helpful Expert Reply:

We offer several types of heaters you can use on your Grasshopper mower's 36hp engine.

The pad type heaters like # KH24050 that attach to your oil (or transmission fluid) pan with 3M tape are one option, but for convenience I recommend a dipstick type engine oil heater # KH15200 which simply slips into the engine's dipstick receptacle. Unlike the pad heaters that require you to stow the cord after the unit is installed, the dipstick heater comes out completely when not in use and for me is a preferable set-up. This heater fits into any 1/4-inch diameter or larger dipstick tube and works fine so long as at least 5-inches of its heating element is immersed in the oil.

For other applications without dipsticks the pad type heaters are a good option.
