I'm trying to figure out if my new 1025R is a 2013 or 2014. None of the paperwork from the dealer has a year on it. There was a "Build Tag" sheet that came with the tractor and at the top is the serial # and below it is the sequence # . The first 4 numbers of the sequence # is 2014---. At the top right hand corner , it says RPL date 08-Jan-14. Does any of this confirm that is truely is a 2014 or can it be a leftover 2013?
Tractors don't go by model year. They go by s/n. When you look up parts for your tractor, most times you'll need the s/n. Your dealer won't ask for a model year. Typically models don't change year to year. If there's a change to be made, there's a s/n break. For example, on the 1026R's it was 210,000. So you don't necessarily have a leftover '13 or an early '14. You have a 1025R s/n xxxxxxxx.
