All the loaders would have been serial numbered seperately, even the two cylinder stuff was. The chassis serial number would be in the same location as on your other crawler.
When I worked for Deere in the late 90's, the Welland, Ontario plant was still making the ag loaders, not sure if they still are or not.

I am sure that you will find you have a 350 [crawler tractor for the C] and it is a B series machine always go for the 2nd letter on the older machines to find the series of your crawler build you will find the serial #will match up better Just last week I found a other auctioneer trying to sell a 550 as a 550C I told him to not sell it if he didn't know what he was selling .I had to explain that this started with the MC and 40C crawlers at the Gs we didn't have that problem in serial number

Thanks for help

The machine has a 2 spool valve block under the seat that the steering lever linkages connect to so i am thinking that it is a 350C
i need to order a service manual so i must be certain that it is a C and not a B. i have a pic of this valve but cannot post the pic

Thanks again

Thanks Kenp

the 2 spool valve that the steering linkages connect to is not the same as your pic
the valve is 6" x 6" and is around 6" to the rear of where the gear lever enters the top of the transmission
if someone has a pic of a 350c with the seat base removed it would help

JD Dozers actually made in Canada

Post by 430deere » Thu Apr 25, 2013 2:29 pm

Lavoy, I was just doing some research on the JD Welland Works and found that from 1965-1969 the 350 & 450 dozers, as well as the 440 & 540 skidders were actually manufactured here in Canada, not just parts of them but the whole machine. The reason was an extreme duty/tariff on industrial equipment coming into the country. In 1969 the duty was removed, so too was the production. As an interested side note, the 340 Roto-boom was designed, developed, and manufactured solely at the Welland Works. They also made the dozer blades for 440 dozers, 300 side booms, and log arches. Send me a note if you want me to share the documentation on these items.

Interesting, never heard of that before. Does your info state that ALL production was done in Canada, or production was joint between US and Canada? Serial number type breakdown for the early350's states Dubuque as point of origin, I would assume if it was Welland, they would have stated that.

Okay, that makes sense. I wonder if any of the Canada machines went to Europe, or if made them there too.

What's the difference between 350C and 350CE?

Post by Toomanytractors » Thu Jan 23, 2014 12:43 pm

Hey All. I'm new here. Like this site a lot.
There seems to be quite a bit of helpful inside knowledge here on the message board. Does anyone know the difference between the 350C and 350CE dozer models? My machine has a 1976 serial number, a six way blade and rop. So far I have not been able to find what the difference is between it and the 350C.

The plate that has the serial number 243***T on it lists it as a 350CE.

The machine is new to me, and the previous owner was unable to provide me with any such information.
How sad it is when one sees only the machine and not the artistry of heart and soul that designed it.

Don't know what the E means for sure, but nothing as far as the model I am pretty sure. A C model is a C model, only difference would be serial number related.
