Boowho?
That was true for Cat equipment. In northern winter operations they couldn't be shut down and had a running mark on the oil dipstick.

I have always been told that you should change oil before storing the unit. This not only removes grime but more importantly acids that can eat away at an engine when sitting for.long periods of time.

I agree with you and would change mine before storage but I don't store mine. I take it to beautiful sunny warm Florida. That was subtle?

Guys and Gals Phil's at it again trying to make us feel bad ........it's working.
With today's oil technology I am not sure that philosophy holds water. Much like you have to change oil in your car/truck every 3000 miles that's not true. Plus I have a service that comes to the house it is enjoyable watching them laying in the snow than before the snow falls. I put that in for Phil's benefit because I'm sure he has forgotten what it's like.

Well gentleman (and ladies) I for one enjoy the snow and can't ever get enough. Florida, Arizona, who needs all that stress of figuring out which tee shirt to wear everyday

Phil,
I don't think subtle is in your vocabulary.
