In some cases the model you are looking for may be covered by a series, if this is the case either look for your model within a multiple model line or the model series. Eg. 360D Dozer may be covered by 360/360B/360D or 360 SERIES. Also try searching the Manufacturer and Type machine only with no model selected as some manufactures may have a serial number range that covers all models produced by that particular manufacturer.
Nearest SN: means that the exact serial number match is unable to be sourced at this point in time, so the app is providing the nearest possible serial number match and the corresponding year contained within the database for the user to judge the approximate year of their machine.
* Please note that the CON INFO team are continually sourcing and updating the database.
Some manufacturers, especially older manufacturers, may have a unique identifier contained within a serial number that will provide the answer to your query, we have provided the required note for the user to locate and decipher the year model if this is the case. The same manufacturer may also have a set serial number range that is applicable to your query that will also provide the correct year.
A tip to achieve a better result is to enter the model and type of the machine. If the model is not available or incorrect always enter the type.
There are a few reasons multiple results can happen,
- the first being, if the year is determined by a prefix in the serial number you may get a list of results that show all the different prefixes and the years they apply to, its a simple matter of matching your prefix to the correct one within the list of results.
- Secondly, if there is no match whatsoever within the database the app will always try to provide an answer by giving nearest matches over multiple models.
- And thirdly, if an incomplete serial number is searched i.e. only 4 digits of a 5 digit serial number are entered the app will provide all results for the incorrect entry.
We have tried to simplify some model lines to help in these instances by using a generic SERIES instead of individual models, however if this doesn't apply or if a match is not achieved or a obvious incorrect match is achieved try searching with only the Manufacturer and Type filters selected.
We are constantly working to update the app with more of everything, including manufacturers, models, types and serial numbers. Regular updates will be available, to easily access these update please set your device to auto update otherwise updates will be available thru the app store. We are more than happy to receive an email via our contact page should you have a machine that is not available on our app.
