    Hobart & Traulsen Manufacture Dates

    Can anyone tell me how to determine when the Hobart & Traulsen equipment we have was manufactured based on the model and/or serial numbers. I can't make heads or tails of their numbers. I've emailed Hobart & Traulsen three times with no joy. Thanks.

    LOL - Isn't that the truth! I've got around 20 pieces of equipment, so I figured emailing them the numbers would be easier. Anyway, thanks for the suggestion. I'll give it a shot.

    Thumbs up

    Lo and behold, the two people I emailed finally got back with me. They were able to provide manufacture dates on all but two pieces of equipment. Kudos to them for doing that.

    Serial number date code traulsen

    The format of the traulsen s/n starting T... and ending letter, number, number gives date of manufacture - letters a-l month jan-dec, numbers are year.
    Eg: C08 is March 2008.
    Hope that helps.

    I give two age ranges.
    If the tag says TX it's old.
    If the tag says NY it's really old
