Re: How do you determine the year of your Deere?

Take the full model number of your JD (for example, mine is M00430X477478) and then go to THIS WEB SITE and enter it in. It'll give you the info.

Re: How do you determine the year of your Deere?

Ok, then maybe this will help? CLICK HERE

You'll need the serial number vs the model number:


LX176 Serial Numbers:
1995: 110001
1996: 130001
1997: 160001
1998: 180001

Re: How do you determine the year of your Deere?

Interesting. I just put the plate information on my 214 into the WFM decoder and it says my lift is manual. I can tell by the paint that the hydraulic lift was on the maCchine when it was painted at the factory. Hmmm....

Re: How do you determine the year of your Deere?

Katt,

I believe that the WFM registry only provides model info for Garden tractors, up to the 1992 model year. Your 520 is too new and your 175 is considered a lawn tractor.

WFM is a great site! A lot of very good information on John Deere tractors and attachments can be found there. One will also see some great GTs owned by very talented and knowledgeable people. Don't knock it til you try it!

Re: How do you determine the year of your Deere?

I did try it! the threads' name is. How do you determine the year of your Deere? not excluding everything but GT's. ergo bogus !
I am familiar with WFM and they have great members with a wealth of info and sections MTF doesn't have.
It's funny you mention attachments cause I would really be more interested in the year of any attachments we might get with a tractor cause the tractor is more easily figured out. Any help there ??
