How do you tell the year of a John Deere tractor?
Regarding this, how do I find out what year my tractor is?
To determine this, look at the tractor production code, also known as the unit date code. The first digit of the tractor production code gives the production year. For tractors manufactured between 1965 and 1974, the digit corresponds with the last number in the year.
One may also ask, how can you tell what year a serial number is? The 10th character in the 17-character VIN represents the vehicle model-year.
- This standard applies to vehicles built in or after 1981.
- Note: VINs do not include the letters I (i), O (o), Q (q), U (u) or Z (z), or the number 0, so that they will not be confused with similar looking numbers/letters.
Consequently, what do John Deere serial numbers mean?
The serial number can be used to track and identify individual John Deere tractors. Identify the letter and numbers in positions nine through 12 in a 17-symbol VIN. In order, these identify the security code, calender year of manufacture, transmission code, and wheel or track designation.
