The source of the data is from a farm equipment quick reference guide that's intended to assist dealers in determining the year and current market value of trade-in equipment.

The guide as such only lists the beginning serial number for each year. I'm making the reasonable presumption that the last serial number for any given year is one less than the starting serial number for the successive year.

Thanks to Digitup for sharing the relevent pages from his guide with us so we can determine what year a given machine is.
