Re: MTZ Equipment aka Belarus/Kirovets tractors

So JCByellowguy are you trying to convince us about these being good machines or trying to convince yourself? When do you take delivery of your first one? Not here to persuade anyone to buy one. Nothing in it for me if the brand becomes successful in North America or not. My original post was to po...

Re: Platinum expansion

Real happy to see the Torion 1914 in its Claas skin. That pre order skin is hideous. Also nice to get a larger wheel loader in game. Just an FYI but lots of cars, trucks and machinery have skins such as that when they are in testing or not yet revealed. It's to try mask the overall appearance. A so...

Re: MTZ Equipment aka Belarus/Kirovets tractors

Sort of a related question for JCBguy and GenXFarmer: Are you seeing many Versatiles in the newer tractor segment in your areas? They are slowly making inroads again in the big tractor market in Western Canada since Rostelmash has taken over and been expanding and promoting the overall line. I woul...

Re: MTZ Equipment aka Belarus/Kirovets tractors

The modern tier 3 and 4 machines dont sell well at all in used form and out of warranty. The mentality around me is buy new for peace of mind and a full warranty on the unreliable emissions systems. A new MTZ/Kirovets sold in NA today will still have to be Tier 4 final though will it not? I agree w...

Re: MTZ Equipment aka Belarus/Kirovets tractors

All good points gentlemen and I do agree. Dealer support sells heavy equipment brands of any kind better than the brand itself. The farm I purchased back in 2016 came with a few pieces of equipment (John Deere) all purchased new in 1989. Deere is still the only dealer in my immediate area that suppo...

Re: MTZ Equipment aka Belarus/Kirovets tractors

Everyone starts somewhere. 2019 is the begining of their sales in N.A. They lined up enough supporting dealers to give it a go. I know there are many here in the U.S.A. who will overlook them simply because they are a foreign brand but thats just ignorance. The dealer ive been in contact with over t...

Re: Priority of Maps

I do agree with you OP about the map being the heart of the game. I personally lose interest in gameplay quickly on maps I dont care for. On the other hand first submitted first tested is the fair approach. I also agree on how mod testing should be much more of a priority at Giant's company than it ...

Re: MTZ Equipment aka Belarus/Kirovets tractors

North America, mainly Canada, U.S.A., and some of Mexico. Dealer support is indeed littered across the U.S. and Canada. MTZ's smaller machines (100-200hp) already have a presence in both countries. Not insinuating they are going to take over and hurt Deere, CNH, or AGCO in the market but instead off...

MTZ Equipment aka Belarus/Kirovets tractors

Been keeping my eye on the MTZ line of machines for some years now. They look to have great dealer support here in the Americas now. Impressive lineup of machines and the engineering looks solid to push the Kirovets 4wd models onto Canadian and U.S. Farms. Could be a future brand for the FS series. ...

Re: Lone Oak pending at Giants/ Shamrock next

Lets all hope it passes testing the first time and isnt sent back for a fix. That would set the release back months at the rate mods are being tested.

Re: Buried trees and map creators

I fully appreciate what many map makers have done with the trees to make the hardwood forests come to life with beautiful low growth that fills in the forest floor. Ive spent many of hour on FS17 logging the hardwood sections of certain mod maps and now its even easier with the landscape feature in ...

Re: John Deere S790 - Console slot count - Can we get clarification

I hope for the sake of my fellow console players on the Playstation that they indeed do get the slot count revision as us Xbox players have. Ive tested a few maps and gameplay is still the same wether the slot drop was a mistake or not. If it was indeed a mistake hopefully it can be duplicated for P...

Re: First screenshots of Lone Oak !!!

Have been waiting for this map since the word of Oxygen David converting it was spoken. The only map I play on FS17 and soon the one and only map ill play on FS19. Cant wait to play FS19 again when Lone Oak hits modhub. *thumbsup*

Re: Future brands

Much rather see Giants start going back in time with the brands they have in game than ad a bunch of new brands with limited product lines. New machines are great but the machines of the 80s, 90s, and early 00s are the machines that most of us still see today putting in a hard days work. Those are t...
