Re: Brand loyalty

Currently I have a couple of old fendts on my working arable land,When I need a bit of muscle then I get my MB Trac out for that. I have a classic Ford with the cows, pigs and sheep, along with a JD skidsteer. I really like Claas (especially the Xerion), so I have a telehandler, and Xerion, plus a c...

Re: 150 mph tractor run!

Guy Martin certainly gets about and does a lot of things, including a Q and A session where I was able to buy a music CD of his favourite rock tracks, and a proper Team TAS Suzuki polo shirt. However, he was being pushed into things in his early TV days, but the production team learned how to work w...

Re: How does Giants model so much equipment?

I would like to know how many items go through modelling without making it into the game? When I used to play racing car games, I was, admittedly briefly, in possession of a car that was scanned by the Gran Turismo game for the playstation. Not only was the car I'd taken to charity trackday, but als...

Re: Can't attach conveyor to tractors to move it

Not quite the same issue as you but might be worth a try? I'd mowed a large field and decided to try using the anderson large square bale wrapper which can be driven at 2mph or towed with a tractor. I bought it, and found the Claas I was in wouldn't connect up, so I hired a medium sized New Holland ...

Re: Seasons add on - Desiccating

I just had to google Roundup as I was sure that's a broad spectrum weedkiller in the UK.. I also had to look up Reglone as I've never heard of that.. Turns out it contains Diquat which is a contact herbicide that produces desiccation and defoliation most often available as the dibromide, diquat dibr...

Re: Newbie With NO Experience Questions

Hello Old Fuelwood.

I think you need to drive to the work site and then when your about to start loading, you need to reverse your driving direction. At that point the cab swings round and you / the driver will track the crane grab

Hope that solves your issue :hi:

Re: MOD CONTEST MODS ARE ONLINE !

Anyone else having issues getting the Unimog mod to show up in game? I can install it but it doesn't show up on the mods screen just before you launch a game or in the store once you're in game. As I've just been playing around with the Syn trac thanks to the tip for increasing my graphics settings...

Re: Happy Fourth of July

The actual American War of Independence, or American Revolutionary War started on the 19th of April 1975, but ended in the Treaty of Paris on the 3rd of September 1783, where various things were agreed and England hoped to have increased trading opportunity. So basically back to money again. hhmm.....

Re: Happy Fourth of July

Happy fourth! Wonder what the British think of this day? Actually... not a lot... No disrespect intended of course, but it doesn't really come up. We may see some news coverage of your President if he's done something specific (but that would be on our news on the 5th). We have adopted some other n...

Re: Detailed Anderson DLC Sneak Peek Video

Thanks for that! It'll add some nice options to my farming. A little less happy with the logging trailer as I was hoping it would have the optional winch on the crane arm. When Giants released the equipment list I watched some videos, just to get a feel for what we might expect. The logging loader v...

Re: log lengths and sell price

I was cutting down a few trees to clear some space for some animals and I made a note of a few prices. I was only using a chainsaw and a tape measure mod for the PC, so perhaps not a true size comparison but I found that 10m earned 1292 Cr. The same relative sized tree cut to 2 lengths at 5m earned ...

Re: Using the HAND icon

I've not used the extra strength mod but I find that if I'm carefull I can load up before giving them a gentle nudge from the end of the trailer.

It does however get a bit tricky if you try to unload using the bag lifter with its pallet straps though :hmm:

Re: Repair question

I too realised that going sideways with dropping bits off at either end was the right way, but I also put a pressure washer at one side so I give everything a good clean before I fix it.

Re: Missing Money

I don't know if the cost in real life is that high, but I do know that many hire companies will have a day rate and delivery costs for a machine. If you sign a contract for an extended hire such as weekly or monthly then you would get a reduction in the day rate. I have a little way to soften the bl...

Re: Bale physics?

I had the same thing happen with the same JCB tractor. I've not tried it with any other tractors but I had the same twisting, and catapulting effect. I managed to put two bales down, then when I refolded the empty carrier, the two bales re attached despite them being on the other side of the farm ya...
