Model Year of 5000 Series Tractors
What year was my 5000 series tractor built?

          

Symptoms

It is possible to determine the model year of a 5000 series tractor from the serial number.

Summary

To determine the model year of your 5000 series tractor, locate the 13 digit identification number (tractor serial number).  It is located on a black metal tag on the left side of the tractor, above the front axle. 


The tractor identification number should not be confused with serial numbers of various other components, such as transmissions, engines, or axles.  It is good practice to always keep these numbers recorded in a safe place in case the tractor is stolen or destroyed.  Your owner's manual contains information on how to locate all the identification numbers.


The 8th digit of the tractor identification number corresponds to the tractor's model year.  To determine the model year, locate the 8th digit of your identification number and compare it to the appropriate table below.


Example: 
5225 tractor with tractor identification number LV5225P123234


The 8th digit of the number is 1.  Per the table below, a 5025 series tractor with a digit of 1 is a model year 2005 tractor.


Note:  There may be a slight discrepancy between model year and build year.  For example, a model year 2005 tractor may have actually been built in late 2004.  Your John Deere dealer can look up the exact build date if necessary.
