not sure if that was a joke or an insult, but i check oil, and water EVERY day i use the mill. and i dont crank and crank and crank, but 10 seconds is NOT very long if the temperature is well below zero, glow plugs or not.
 i dont think i have a diesel that will start with less than  10 seconds of cranking, not the skidder with no glow plugs, the mill with glow plugs, '05 6 liter ford with glow plugs, skidsteer with glow plugs, or the fuso with glow plugs that dont work. some just flat dont start unless plugged in, but the mill is no where near electrical power and has no block heater.

 when it is really cold, it will fire pretty quick but needs a few seconds of "assistance" from the starter to stay running.

i have several machines, and have sold several off, never had to replace a starter yet, except for ones that were bad when i bought the machine.

It was a miss understanding.
Two LT70s, Nyle L200 kiln, 4 head planer, 30" double surface planer, Lucus dedicated slaber, Slabmizer, and enough rolling stock and chainsaws to keep it all running.

Sorry spencerhenry,
I wasn't trying to imply that you were cranking too long, your right, 10 secs. is not too long, I just meant that you could crank the engine until you destroyed the starter and it wouldn't have any effect on the H-Bridge.
As far as the cold start, you might try manually holding the throttle wide open while cranking, the Cat's will usually start a lot better if you do. Also, the o-rings on the fuel tank fittings can sometimes leak very slightly causing the fuel system to leak down overnight and make the engine have to "prime" itself in the morning. Make sure you are using the right oil weight in the engine too (probably 10w30 in the winter), if you are using something heavier the oil will be real "thick" causing the governor to be slow to respond.

 You might want to put a squeeze bulb like on a boat motor  or a electric fuel pump on if you think your having leak down problems. Had a truck like that , I had to pump the primer every morniing or crank a long time. That turned out to be something in the fuel filter, when I put a new one on the problem went away. I have MM tractor that wounldn't start after running out of fuel, put a primer bulb inline and no problems now.    Steve

Grounding Can be an issue on any equipment and there was service bulletin rom Kohler Re grounding issues with their motors on saw mills BUT it applies in general.
 
I love my 07  Wood Mizer BUT the one a system that could be a bit more robust out of the factory is the electrical conductors and grounding system. 

I have upgraded ALL of my conductors to High grade copper conductors that are at least 1 gauge size larger than the OEM wire AND I have added 2 extra Ground cables that are coated with dielectric grease BEFORE they are connected to the ground terminals. The info is in the sawmill mods section.
