    Looking for the year built on my 80 Dump Cart

    Is formula to figure out what year my 80 dump cart is made? The number is on a foil sticker, # 8417. The "chassis" is black, a late model. It doesn't have rust, just some minor surface rust. I'm guessing it's 1984-1988. How do you figure this our? Appreciate to figure it out.

    I'd like to haul the grandkids around in the 80 with my 1976 68 rider. :-]

    Welcome to GreenTractorTalk. You have a real treasure with an 80 Dump Cart. They seem to last forever. I have never seen a serial number breakdown on them, but mine is somewhere around 30 years old and has a stamped, riveted on metal plate. I don't remember when JD went to the stick on serial number plates, but someone may come in on this post with better information.

    elarsen - Your very question has been asked on many John Deere Lawn and Garden Tractor forums across the Internet. To tell you the truth, and others will agree, there is really no conclusive direct answer for that question. The only answer anyone has come close to getting is what John Deere themselves are able to produce. Apparently John Deere didn't take as much care documenting SN for items such as Dump Carts as they did with their tractors when they began manufacturing such items. I don't think they believed items such as the 80 Dump Cart would eventually become a collectors item.

    Below is a model number mapping of the date range for the 80 carts that comes directly from John Deere. Only the 1968 carts can be narrowed down to a single year model, as they have brass tags AND an E0900 model designation on their tags.

    Carts with foil tags do not have a serial number but rather a "date code" which is most likely in the form of YYWW where the first two numerals are the year and the last pair are the week within that year(1 through 52) but this has never been confirmed as the official meaning, to my knowledge. I hope this helps somewhat.

    80 dump cart Value (1968-1969)

    It looks like I have a 1968-69 80 dump cart. It is a little rusted but pretty still in good working condition. Could any one tell me what the estimated value of the cart would be?

    I love my 80 dump cart. I've had that thing piled high with limestone rock and she was rock solid (pun intended)

    Looks like I need to take a look at the serial number on mine as it appears it may be earlier than I thought it was (it's a white one - wish it were green)

    I know on the foil tag the first 2 numbers are the year and the last 2 are the week. So 8417 would have been made the 17th week of 1984.

    Also on the foil tags its a date of MFG which it says on the sticker, its not a serial number. many foil tag carts can have the exact same "date of mfg" numbers because they made more than one a week.

    Jbanit,

    MN is a pretty good market for 80 carts. I've sold several like yours in the $2-300 range. YMMV
