Things You'll Need
- Serial number
Locate the serial number on your John Deere lawn tractor. The number is located on a metal plate on the tractor engine. Push the hood release on top of the engine cover at the top of the tractor to expose the engine. Write the serial or model number down.
Download a copy of the serial number lists from the John Deere website. Compare the serial numbers with the numbers on the lists. For example, a tractor with a serial number from 150001 to 160000 has a manufacture date of 1969.
Contact customer service with the serial number if you are unable to locate the year on your own. Some products are unlisted on the download pages due to the large quantity of products.
