Is keeping the Cimex with my 175 in shed OK? Or should I bring it in?

During winter lows here get about 32 degrees but sometimes can get down to 15 in extreme weather and 25-28 when low.

Looks like a tank but rather ask then take chances....

The 175 might get jealous of the Cimex and stab it in it's sleep...

I'd take apart the tubing,make sure the tank is completely dry as well as all the fittings that the tubing attaches to.

I'm going to put a little RV antifreeze in my cimex machines and my eco -17 machines also.

I put a temperature reader in there last night which also read the high and the low throughout the night and day 61 was high during day and 28 was the low last night inside but everything is dry no liquids in the storage shed.

I am worried I'm probably just going to bring them in and leave the 175s and OP Oreck out there especially if the 175 gets jealous of the Cimex I don't want any fights breaking out in the middle of the night LOL

I have bought plenty of old motorcycles left on a patio or in a old shed . Within a year or two they get the chrome pitted and look like crap . Left in a garage they can remain mint.

Thanks, I want to keep my machine looking new as the way the machine looks helps to sell... Yeah I think its best to leave it in during winter.

Moisture is the next enemy as long as you have the freezing issue addressed with the fluids.
