 How to know year??

Can anyone provide me with a way to know the manufacture year of my Yanmar 1500...for example from a S/N lookup, etc?

Thanks,

 How to know year??

Year and other info usually is built into the serial number. Unfortunately, my usual source of specs etc. doesn't list 1500's. The models at tractortips are all YM with a three diget model number and maybe a 'D' at the end. Maybe a 1500 is equivalent to one of these models and tractortips usually does describe the serial numbers pretty well.

sj -

I am going to go out on a limb here...If in fact the model of your Yanmar is in fact a 1500, rather than a 150D, it most likely is pre-1975 vintage. In and around the 1975 era, Yanmar changed from the xx00 model number id's to xx0D id numbers. Best guess without a s/n to support it, would be pre-1975. What other info can you tell us about this unit, ie.: engine hp, PTO hp, running train, etc. Perhaps a better assessment may be made after learning these items.

Isheaffer -

Maybe it is time for a different library card. (Laughing out loud)
Actually, even Kubota started tracking their numbers in the mid to late sixties - though primitive as it was at that point.

Most all, with the emphasis on most, tractors today are traceable back in time by their S/N or other I.D. numbers, Japanese included.

You tell me which library card.I'm a Yanmar & Mitsubishi dealer. I deal in manuals & parts for these tractors every day & have yet to find a serial # to year listing for anything other than for US Kubotas. I'm waiting to here what year it is from your library.

Did not mean to ruffle your feathers, as everyone read, I wrote that comment in a light hearted text. However, to reiterate:

Once again -

In and around the 1975 era, Yanmar changed from the xx00 model number id's to xx0D id numbers. Best guess without a s/n to support it, would be pre-1975. What other info can you tell us about this unit, ie.: engine hp, PTO hp, running train, etc. Perhaps a better assessment may be made after learning these items.

One of the support mechanisms in place that offers this information - for a variety of non-USA made tractors and farm equipment, is put out by FEG. Another, though somewhat less comprehensive, is put out by Intertec.

The YM1500 was made from 1975-1979. the early green models have steel clutch housings. The later red models have cast clutch housings. My source is a Japanese tractor book.
