 Model year info for JD 855?

Does anyone have a list of serial numbers and model years for the 55 series tractors? I would like to find out what year my 855 is. I think it is an early one, as it has a green rear seat pan, rather than black, and the exhaust exits through the left side panel. Any info is appreciated. I can provide my serial number if needed, however I don't have it handy and would like to know the serial/date ranges anyway. Thanks in advance!

Guy Snyder

The 855 was made from 1986 - 1998 the kist is to long to print here, since there are 4 breaks oer year depending on options.

Give me your No. and I'll look it up and let you know, I have the book in my desk drawer.

The 855 serial no. is one of those anomilies that one never fully understands. They started in 1986 with 360001 and in 1990 they started over with 10001. I have never heard of the reason for this, but it is true.

Tractors with SCV's had a different No. range than those without, also, 4wd had different No. ranges than 2wd. all in the same model year.

If this all sounds a bit confusing, you are normal, because it is. Just give me your No. and I'll let you know.

Looked at the serial number last night, it is D630053. If Tractor tips info is right, it would be an 89 model. Does this match up with everyone else's info? Also, what would the D indicate? Thanks!

Guy

Looks like it's an '89 in my book also, and a later one at that. I dunno what the "D" signifies.

Good luck with her.

I saw the post from MrE just after I posted my tractor tips comment. MrE's offer sounds better that mine. I have noticed the occasional mistake in tractortips specs so maybe there's a rare mistake in the serial number info as well. It would be pretty difficult to compile and enter the info for that many tractors with an mistake somewhere. Sounds like MrE's info comes directly from a JD book.
