the carb heater helps prevent icing in the carb they are not going to help much with starting. The circulating heater that snowtractor mentioned will help a lot with cold starting, they circulate and heat the engine coolant and will make starting easy when it is cold.

What about a magnetic block heater? I have used them in vehicles and other wheelers. I am going to try it on my Rhino. Pretty easy to just slap it on the oil pan or the block.

I plowed the other morning and it was 9 degrees. I park in the garage and have a battery tender on my battery. Other than that I did not use the block heater and it fired right up. It takes a little while to warm up, but then ran like a top.

In Canada we often ride -20 - -30f.
No carb heater required if you stay away from injesting the white fluffly stuff. Now on the 700 with snorkels upfront it is near impossible. 660 w/ intake over engine much easier.

For battery stock is fine if not using accessories. But if you are using the winch much or using winch for your snowplow then 1/2 hour of plowing and your toast.
