You can tell the year on a Craftsman by the first six digits of the serial number. They are in groups of two. First two digits are the month, second two digits are the day and the third two digits are the year.

For example if:--. My model #917.255520 Has a serial number of 1131S37112 means it was made on the(11-31-S3) 11th month and 31st day of the year 2003.

Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Wondered what year Sears made this tractor?

If the tractor has a Briggs engine, the code on the engine will give you the manufacturer date of the motor, most likely correlating with the model year of the tractor. Here is how you read the Briggs and Stratton engine code.
