Default How to Determine Year tractor was made?

I am trying to find out what year my tractor is. The plates or stickers on the frame near the front are unreadable. Is there someplace else on the tractor that a person can find the serial number to determine the year of the tractor?

Thank You

This might work-go to Kubota web site and look at prior products-it should show model and year---

The only quick and dirty way that I'm aware of is to check your rear wheels to see if there is a date stamped into the wheel. The assumption, then, is that the tractor ws made close to that date. Nobody worries much about the date. Most all are concerned with the hours of use not the originakl date that it was manufactured. So be it I guess.

Hi there,
Once you have located the serial number, go to "tractordata.com" where you will find the make and model of you tractor. input the make and model and then look at the serial numbers to idenify the year. This site will also have many other specifications for your tractor model.

I went to tractordata.com but numbers only go to 1986 for SN around 13000.

My B7100 HST serial number is: 66850

Does anyone know where I can find out the year of my tractor?

Thanks, AK

Question Re: How to Determine Year tractor was made?

Handyman and Vic,

Thanks, Handyman, I checked with the link you provided. My tractor I believe is newer than a 1980. The reason I think so, is that it is a Hydro and the earlier B7100s were gear in 1980. Also, the person I bought the tractor from, stated he was the original owner and he bought it around 1996 from a dealer new.

Yesterday, I stopped by my local dealer to pick up some parts when I asked him if he could tell me the year of my tractor. He brought out a book and proceeded to look. I found this interesting and maybe Vic could provide more insight here. He showed where Kubota quit making the model B7100 by the late 80's early 1990 and then made they again(Only Hydro models) in the early to mid 90s. The serial numbers showed only up to 58000 for around 1990but my serial number is 66850 and we could only guess. His book may be out of date too. He then looked at my Operator Manual I got with my tractor and he thinks it may be one of the last B7100 made in the mid 1990s.

Vic, can you confirm from your Kubota reference manuals or is there a page on the OTT website I could reference?

Thanks, AK

Mid 90's is about right because my B7100 HST 4WD was bought new by my uncle in 1992 and the serial number is 63044. Hope this helps you.
