VIN/PIN-
A VIN stands for vehicle identification number (VIN) or is also known as a product identification number (PIN). It is the identifying code for a specific on-road vehicle or off-road machine. The VINPIN serves as the machine’s fingerprint, identifying it individually. VIN/PINs are unique to a specific machine.

How many digits are in a VIN/PIN?
A VIN/PIN for a Vermeer branded product is composed of 17 characters (alpha numeric, consisting of digits and capital letters) that act as a unique identifier for one machine. A VIN/PIN code includes indicators of the machine’s model, features, and manufacturer. The VIN/PIN is used to track equipment ownership, product field campaigns, warranty claims and more.

Where is the VIN/PIN located on a Vermeer machine?
The specific location of the VIN/PIN can vary by Vermeer machine model, but generally can be found:

  • on an embossed metal black/silver plate affixed on the machine’s frame usually on the right side towards the front of the machine or near the operator’s station;
  • engraved/stamped into the frame usually on the right side towards the front;
  • on a machine identification decal
