btw, if you want to find this sort of info in the future:
1. Go to jdparts.com
2. Enter any model number in the search box (it doesn't matter what you enter, this is just to get you to the next page.)
3. At the top of the page select the "Catalog Number Search"
4. Enter Catalog No. "2797".
5. Use the "Alphabetical Index" to locate the attachment type you are looking for (For example "S" for "Snowblower".
That will give you a cross reference listing of JD Model numbers to the equipment it fits. And you can manually scan it for your tractor and then see which model number attachment fits your machine.
Hey guys! So i have a question, even the JD dealer here couldnt help me for sure. Have a guy here that has a snow blower, all he has is serial number, which is #M0037AX525405. I cannot find anywhere if it will fit my mower, which is a model 0102A, serial # GX0102A031794. Any help would be greatly appreciated
Not to argue, But Based upon your VIN number, I think you have a 2003 model machine with the 42" Mower deck......Unless there should be a 0 in front of the last 5 numbers, because there should be 6 numbers following the "D"Good morning, I have a 2002 John Deer Model LT160 tractor Serial #MOL160D12010 that i'm trying to locate a snow blower attachment for. I need all the pieces required to complete the install. I've contacted the local dealer but because of the age of the machine they are unable to help with information on what model blower attachment will fit my machine. Any help will be greatly appreciated..
Can someone please help me determine what snowblower will fit my tractor........I have a 2007 LA130 tractor (S/N GX0130A018902) with the 48" mowing deck. I have found a 44" snowblower (S/N M044SBC00265) for sale....The best I can figure out is that the "C" needs to be an "H"....but what is the diffference if this character in the VIN represents the 'Emmission Level'? Any assistance would be much appreciated
There is a digit missing there. There should be 6 digits after the "C".S/N M044SBC00265
Despite your machine only having been built in 2006, the following Snow Blowers will fit
The 44" Model M044SBH for tractors made in 2007 and 2008
The 42" Model GX0422X0 for tractors made in 2003 - 2005.
Ironically, no snowblowers appear to have been made for THAT machine only in 2006, it uses the snow blowers for preceding models in 03 to 05 and then after the 102 was built, in 2007 and 2008.
Focus on the specific Blower Model numbers when looking for the blower as you have been. And it very important that you attempt to make sure all of the pieces are included in whatever you do purchase as individual brackets and pieces, while available,. are not common stocked in most dealers.
These blowers aren't nearly as common as other John Deere blowers found for resale. Also, don't let anyone tell you that any other blowers will fit your machine without modification or custom fabrication as the snow blowers JimR listed and that I further described above are the only two Deere recognizes as fitting your mower.
Here are diagrams of the 44" blowers and their mounting pieces so you have an idea of what should be included with any purchase.
To be honest, there isn't a lot of information easily found about these blowers.......

Here is the link to the page in the John Deere Parts book which shows the mount and pieces you need.
Try and buy a complete kit and PLEASE do not believe it when someone tells you "Oh, don't worry, although this blower was used on a XXXXX it will also fit on yours" as this is wrong 99% of the time. Also, there is no "special adapter kit" to make blowers not designed for your machine to fit your machine.
I wish I had a dollar for every time someone has posted here on GTT that they were told that by someone selling used equipment. I would probably have enough money to buy a new John Deere insulated thermos to keep my tractor coffee warm...
