If you have any trouble using the MAN truck with the joskin cargo 7000/40 and it tipping over even at lower speed try using a art mechanic pt 25 2500kg weight it seems to help balance it better.

Just curious but how fast were you going when it tipped over? I gave it a quick test but only on The Old Stream Farm and it seemed ok....haven’t driven it like I’ve stolen it yet

I was on Sussex farm doing 29 mph. At 25 it was getting loose. I edited my original post 1 is enough but it makes a bit stiffer and increases turning radius a bit but not too bad.

Only seems to be a issue with a full 40k joskin cargo 7000/40 I was huling silage so maybe that was part of the issue. Hay and straw might be fine ill test it and see.

I play on PS4 and I was using the Man trucks this morning testing, Has anyone else noticed a handling difference between the little semi with and without the Bullbar ?

With the Bullbar and no trailer that truck will spin out in a 30 MPH turn, Without the Bullbar and no trailer the truck handles way different. It has no problem turning at 55 MPH.

Can someone else test and verify this ? or am I hallucinating.

I should also say the trucks both handle the same pulling a trailer, it only occurred for me when there was no trailer.

Also the trucks I tested this on all had the rear hitch and wide tires.

oO that's weird, would mean the bullbar has a huge mass.

Since certain people in this topic have trouble driving, maybe we need a driving test that comes with a license if you pass? ^_^

They both handle fantastic with a trailer, but with the Bullbar and no trailer, you can literately do doughnuts in an intersection and drift. Lol

Testing with the trailer loaded did not seem to make any difference Bullbar or not though.

Think they handle shockingly bad, using hooklift, bullbar, forestry tyres with bsm flat bed, rolls over and plays dead at the slightest turn, even worse with back axle up. Empty, minute you get up to speed and touch the steering, just wants to spin on its nose.

Bit of a disappointment for me I'm afraid.
