In 1969, John Deere made lawn tractors with seats and customized hoods in four colours: red, orange, blue and yellow. The tractor, other than chair and the hood, was painted white. From 1971, John Deere ceased making coloured yard tractors due to a lack of earnings. Pinpointing a John Deere lawn tractor’s age is as simple as checking its color. For conventional yellow and green tractors, determining their age takes a little investigating.

Stand behind your John Deere lawn tractor and look into the left hand corner close to the left tire to locate the identification tag. This metal plate connected to the frame of the mower supplies the model and serial number of all the tractor to you. Tags might be located under the hood or along the front on models.
