Timberjack Serial Number

(1/2) > >>

pinehillstacker:
Howdy all,

I just bought a TJ 208GS, and I am trying to get service and operators manuals for it from John Deere's website.  Is there a way to decode the serial number to get the year?  The serial # is 784073.  When I bought it, the owner told me it was a 1980; I just want to double check before I fork over the cash for the manuals.

Thanks, Si.

bushmechanic:
  Serial numbers are complicated on Timberjacks. The G stands for Gm engine and the S stands for standard transmission. I would guess that you machine is a D series Timberjack. Hope this helps but if not another member called neilo is knowledgeable with those old "jacks".

Neilo:
It is a 1976 machine. I think most of the manuals are by serial number, not just year.

As bushmechanic said, it is a D series.

pinehillstacker:
