The float charger will keep the battery ready to go, but you need to get some heat in the fluids to make it easier to start. For central VA one of those magnetic heaters can be slapped on and plugged in for an hour or so if I need to use a tractor after a night of single digits. I plug the heater in and go do something else for a while. We haven't had one of those nights yet. Further North permanently-installed heaters work better and are a lot more convenient. If we lived any further North I'd be looking at cab tractors with a heater for me.
