    Tonight
    went to work
    temp was -33c with a windchill of -44c
    (thats -27f & -47.2f for those of you in the usa)
    Pretty freakin cold - even for a canadian

    And still, truck ran great
    Lots of heat

    Probably the only thing better would be to have some kind of insulation in the cab

    But overall super impressive

    I thought I would have had to park the truck for the really cold months
    But no, its doing great!!

    Traction is even not too bad considering I DONT have 4 wheel drive

    I was told ---- oh you wont even be able to drive down the back lane with it --
    Yah right !! This thing is just fine

    That is cold. I think we saw -12F (-24C) yesterday but today we're in "positive" numbers. All the way up to 8F right now. And snowing.

    I think I'm going to need to get a new battery for my little truck. It only gets driven on weekend and the battery tends to wear down. I've got a solar charger on it so I may go give it a try this morning.

    Here in Northern Maine, I park my HA4 for the winter. It only has a glorified lawn mower battery and will only turn over a couple of times before going flat. we are set to have our coldest weather of the season (-20 to -30F) this weekend. The truck is great in the fall until early Dec. Heater works great and no one runs their side by sides much after hunting season. they are out in the open and I am snug in the Honda!

    Luckily for me
    I get to keep my truck in a nice warm garage

    MY battery can't handle anything past -20 either
    Maybe some day I can put in a real battery
    That seems to be the only issue though

    B4 I made more room in the garage...
    I just hooked up a trickle charger to the battery

    Then no probs

    Mine put out so little heat you chose to keep the windshield defrosted or your feet warm.
    Can't drive it with my size 13 snowboots on!
    Just got it back had the heater & rad flushed, but it went from -25 to +6 in the last couple days.
