The tractors don't have "model years" like the autos do, but if I am not mistaken, you can obtain the build date with the VIN number through your dealership or any Deere dealership for that matter.Is there a chart available that one can determine when a 1025R was built by using the VIN? I purchased mine in 2017 but that may not mean it's a 2017. Not having any problems, but being a retired auto tech, lots of info can be obtain by the VIN.
Jim should we put this in our Technical Library ??Yes, there is a chart. If you go to JDParts.com, search on the 1025R and select the "Worldwide Edition" it will take you to the 1025R main page. If you scroll down on that page there is a link to "Product Information". That link takes you to the attached document:
I'm hesitant to do so. Deere has a copyright on the doc and they may get nasty of we start posting them here to much (I think they'll let us slide if someone posts one every couple of years...). But everyone can access them directly through JDParts.com. Perhaps the solution is to post the "How to..." direction on how to find it on JDParts in the tech library? I'll have to practice my photoshop skillz to do that. :laugh:Jim should we put this in our Technical Library ??
You beat me to it, both of my tractors have/had the VIN breakdown right in the OM.I found what I was looking for. In fact the PIN break down is right in the operators manual. Page 02-1. Mine is a 2017 according to the PIN. Thanks for all your help. It is appreciated.
