      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

tips for starting snowblower when very cold

Recommended Posts

Just tried to start my snowblower this AM, ran fine yetserday, and today it would turnover, but never did start. What are some things that I can do to help make sure it starts. I store it in the garage, use premium gas, treat it with the new stabil, what else can i do. should I plug in the battery if it is really cold, just on a slow trickle, set a lamp of some sort near the engine? Any tips would be great.

Thanks,

BHS

Obviously if it can be plugged in to warm the block up would help. Not sure how many models offer this. If it doesn't have that capability and depending on if you can fit it on somewhere, you could get one of those magnetic block heaters to help keep the engine warm. Heat tape may work as well but you just have to be careful as to not wrap the heat tape over itself.

When all else fails, a quck shot of starting fluid into the air intake.

Switch to a Cold temp synthetic oil. Runs like water in almost any temp and will make turning the engine over a lot easier. Give it time to warm up before tearing into the driveway. Make sure the engine is at full throttle when shutting down.

When in doubt use a can of spray ether and it'll start. If that doesn't work just load it up and take it to the shop cause something's got to be boogered up.
