I second this, especially when it comes to potato planting equipment. Currently, the widest potato planter is 6 meters wide. Grimme makes an 8 meter version, but for some reason, neither Giants nor modders have included it in the game.

I'd also like to see more grain trucks and dump trucks in the game. A few modders have made some good ones, but for the most part, most are unrealistic when it comes to engine horsepower and/or capacity of the truck. In my home state of Montana, most farmers use grain or dump trucks as opposed to tipper trailers pulled by tractors. When I was young and helping my grandfather on his farm, he used grain trucks to haul the crops from the field to the silos, and even from the silos to the selling point.

They dont make the 8m, unless is a custom modified

I looked it up and you are correct.

Check out the potato planter GL 860. It's even available in a fold-able version.

To be exact, yes. I'm just trying to point out that there are wider potato planters available, which would make it easier on players who want to plant potatoes in larger fields.

Ah ok, thanks for clearing that up. :smileynew: Yes I do wish as well that we had bigger potato planters.

So, I saw it said above that the largest potato planter is 6m, and 8m if it is modified. That's cool to know, but makes me wish we could modify not only tractors but the specs of CERTAIN implements as well.

Yeah I would like to customize the equipment as well, maybe in FS19? :hmm:

#1. More different types of harrows, rolls and cultivators that you could put in the front and/or rear linkage. Or maybe attach to a seeder.

#2. Tractors from the 80's and 90's the brand they've got right now are fine by me.

#3. A smaller (twin axle) hooklift trailer.

#4. The option to put seedbins on your tractors. Like attached to the frontlinkage or the platform of the jcb.

#5. A single 'wheel' rake.



I like the idea of #2, and with the announcement of only allowing only already licensed brands for mods on the consoles, I beg of our modding community to explore the rich US heritage of AGCO. White, Oliver, Allis Chalmers, & Minneapolis Moline are all great tractor brands, White New Idea planters(even for 36-48 row planters), Sunflower tillage equipment, Hesston baling equipment, GLEANER combines, the list goes on and on for stuff under the AGCO banner.

We may also have the availability of Versatile tractors due to them being under the Rostmash(sp?) ownership now.

Of particular interest to me would be the old White 4-150/4-180/4-210/4-225/4-270 family of articulated 4wd's.
