Details

IronGuides® has a wealth of information about serial numbers and their locations on ag equipment manufactured all the way back to 1928. For the first time we're publishing this information in its own book, The IronGuides Serial Number Handbook


Why? Ag equipment manufacturers’ serial numbers follow no standard numbering process to identify year manufactured. Farmers and Ag Equipment dealers need a "goto" resource for serial number data on: 
Tractors
Combines 
Balers
Forage
Mower Conditioners
Skid Loaders
Sprayers
Windrowers
and other miscellaneous types 


The IronGuides Serial Number Handbook provides easy & convenient look-up of serial number listings and locations revealing where to find serial numbers on equipment. It identifies equipment model year by serial number for:
  • 1928-2018 model years
  • 4,796 models
  • 46 manufacturers
  • 13 types of equipment
  • 28,912 serial numbers


A handy resource in the office, truck, shop or on the farm, the IronGuides Serial Number Handbook is valuable reference for:
  • Farmers
  • Service Technicians
  • Appraisers
  • Insurance companies
  • Credit Unions/Banks/Finance companies
  • Dealers
  • Auction companies


How to use the book


The serial number listing in the book is sorted by:
  1. Type of Machine
  2. Manufacturer 2-5 letter Code

    (makes that have been consolidated or merged will generally use the current manufacturer's code in order to ensure the flow of years made)
  3. Manufacturer Name

    (this will generally be the name of the manufacturer at the time of production rather than any successor company)
  4. Model Number

    (variations of models may have a footnote)
We have included all model years and beginning serial numbers made available to us at press time. The serial number lists show the number for the first piece of equipment built for each model year or the pattern for that particular model year. NOTE:  Serial numbers may not necessarily be the first numbers displayed on the serial number plate but will be the ending number sequence.
