Where to Locate Your Model. When sitting on the tractor the product identification label can be found on the lower right-hand side of the hood. Now that you have located your model number…
A lawn tractor usually has the ID tag under the front right wheel. Otherwise, the ID tag can be found by the back left wheel. The engine number will be found directly on the engine.
Yes, tractors do have a VIN. The Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) is a unique alphanumeric code that identifies a vehicle uniquely in the United States and Canada. When you purchase your tractor, the dealer will include it on their paperwork and give it to you when they hand over your new machine.
To determine the year of manufacture for a tractor with a six digit number use the following formula. Take the first and the fourth digit, and subtract three to get the year. For example, the serial number of 395602 would be: 36-3 = 1933.
When you want to identify the year of your tractor, you can look at several things. First and foremost is the tractor serial number, which is stamped into an aluminum plate located on the right side of your tractor, on the steering gear housing. Use the tractor serial number table to look up the year.
The 1st three numbers of your serial number will always provide your manufacture date. The 1st number is the YEAR of manufacture; the 2nd & 3rd numbers indicate the MONTH of manufacture.
The first number denotes the size and family of the tractor and the next three numbers specify the approximated engine horsepower. The first letter following the number indicates the capability and features of the tractor.
Details. What year was my equipment built? The 5th character of our 11 character product serial numbers will indicate the last number of the year that it was manufactured. Since 5th character in the example is a 4, the year of manufacture would be a year ending in 4.
