JD Service Publications

John Deere prints operator's manuals, technical manuals, and parts catalogs on much of the equipment (tractors, combines, mowers, planters, grills, etc.) they have produced over the years. They also print additional service publications on certain equipment and accessories. These are the same manuals the dealers use. These publications are a MUST for anyone working on their own (or anyone else's) equipment. They are not cheap, but any money spent on these will be more than made up for in the aid received from these publications.

Customers may order publications direct from:

Midland Press Corporation
John Deere Dept. 800
5440 Corporate Park Drive
Davenport, IA 52807

Before ordering a publication, check your machine serial number. A single machine may have several issues of a publication listed for it.

When you have the model number and serial number of your machine, call 1-800-522-7448. They can help you determine what manuals are available for your equipment, what the price is, and can place the order for you. Please allow three weeks for delivery.

I have a couple of recommended publications, particularly for the two-cylinder tractors.

(Please note: I am not a dealer in manuals! I am simply an average guy sharing information on how to obtain the manuals you need. Please call the 800 number for manuals.)
