Riding mower model numbers are found by flipping the seat forward. The model number is printed on the left side of the Product Identification Label, attached to the underside of the seat, and starts with the letters, “CM”.
To Determine Manufacture Date Based on Serial Number: 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. Please see the detailed explanation and examples provided below.
Finding your model number and serial number is as easy as locating the identification tag on your machine. As seen in the example, the model number will be displayed below the MODEL heading (Example: Z235), and the serial number will be underlined on the top-right corner of the tag (Example: 130002).

You can expect to get anywhere from six to ten years out of your riding mower, or longer with proper care and maintenance.
The first lawn mowers were manual reel mowers, also known as cylinder mowers. All a person had to do was push one across the lawn, and the wheels would spin a cylinder of sharpened, grass-cutting blades.
Model Number Marking. Craftsman tools began carrying model number markings sometime between 1968 and 1970, based on observations of ratchets with patent pending markings. For simplicity we will use dates up to 1969 for tools without model numbers, and dates 1970 or later for tools with model numbers.
