  • determining age of equipment

    How do you determine the age of a piece of Miller equipment by the serial number? It would be helpful to know when looking at a piece that is at a sale. Thanks, JEFF

    Jeff,

    Here's the top secret way. For the most part, this works and will get you within a year or so.

    The first two letters indicate the year.

    Example.

    A=0
    B=1
    C=2
    D=3
    E=4
    F=5
    G=6
    H=7
    J=8
    K=9
    L=2000

    A serial number starting with KG123456 was made sometime in 1996. Today we are using "LE" serial numbers. We don't use the letter I 'cause it looks too much like a 1.

    Hope this helps.

    Andy

          Went to an action today, I appeared to be pretty smart when I could tell people the years of the miller equipment that was up for bid. Andy and this forum rules!
