Where to Find the Model and Serial Number on a John Deere Push Mower
If you're looking for the model and serial number of your John Deere push or self-propelled mower, here is a good place to look. The following is a decent list of John Deere push mower identification tag locations that we've gathered.
Standing on left side (it would be on your left if you were standing behind the unit) of the machine, just below the engine muffler, is one of the recommended locations to check for your John Deere identification tag. In this location, the tag might get dirty, so wipe it off with a clean, damp rag.
Here's the same picture with a slight difference -- we've moved the arrow! To find the Briggs & Stratton identification numbers on this engine, you'll want to look on the engine, just above the muffler. There will be a black plate with the numbers etched into it. You'll want to record the model, type, and code information. To look up parts, please use our Briggs and Stratton parts lookup for free!
