    Serial number guide?

    Anyone know the names of some good equipment guides for seeing serial number ranges to year? Also where might i find them? kinda like the blue books for construction equipment.

    For Case equipment you can use the first few numbers to determine the year. ie. and N4C would be a 2004, N5C 2005, etc. The C is a backhoe and a skidsteer would be NXM.

    S/n ?

    Try www.toughquip.com for the later models.

    Then ACMOC.org for the Antiques ?

    Caterpillar also puts out a "SEBF9451-xx " booklet, for their products.

    There are several that give good coverage but the one I use the most is done by Equipment Watch a Primedia Business Information Data Product. Phone number is 1 800 669-3282.

    These are spendy but if you are in the business it is the most comprehensive I've used in the last 13 years.

    Good Luck!

    Associated Equipment Dealers used to put out a pretty good serial book, don't know if they still do or not. You can email them at; info@aednet.org
    and ask how to get your hands on a copy. I carried one for years, may still have it someplace in a box. Ask for AED Serial Number Guide. The Cat Serial Number Guide is good. I'm sure some of the other manufacturers also put out a guide, you will have to ask for the ones you are interested in.

    Good Luck!

    The best Caterpillar Information on the net for serial numbers, stolen equipment, and more is at www.ironrecord.com I can not believe is free.

    We have a 994 at where I work, it was there in 1996 when I started here. It has no letter after 994. I was talking to the cat fitter a couple of days ago and he said it was built before cat put a model letter to them, he did say it was the 213th one built. It is still working but has had a few rebuilds and updates.What year would it have been built?
