Kubota Key

Okay stupid question... glow plugs?

I recently started working on a farm, where I drive a Kubota mule to pull a muck spreader. The Kubota has a diesel engine, which uses a glow plug, which I'm not sure if I'm using it right or not...
I turn the key to the glow plug symbol and wait about 30 seconds before turning the key to start the engine... is that all there is to it? Or am I supposed to hear something that tells me the glow plug is working? There isn't a "wait to start" symbol, my boss just told me to wait 30 seconds if it's warm, and closer to a minute if it's cold out.
I don't want to break it! lol.
Thanks.

You are doing it right. The glow plug has nothing to do with the operation of the engine, it just pre-heats the combustion chamber so the diesel will light-off quickly on cold starts. If you are using the Kubota on and off during the day it will usually start without using the glow plugs if the engine is still hot/warm. No, you can't hurt it.
