See I am kinda hard on this subject. As a 2 ton truck would fit more of a 4000-6000 liter grain tank. Not being impartial here. But their is only 1 rig in the 2.5 ton range that actually would then carry a 8000-12000 liter load. And was about to haul 20 ton of load. Being built from 1935-1959 and saw a ton of use until the AMC/AM General Put the M35 2.5-5 ton as it's replacement. That would be the Deuce and a half. The GMC 352 CCKW. A goody but oldie. One is in Bennington VT for sale in need of restoration. Actually if someone could put a 1942 352 CCKW in the game for console. Just call it a made up military brand if need be. Like BSM did with their own console mods. But I would love that as a full utility farm rig. Offer a slurry tank with gantry for it. And you could use the truck for everything from water hauling. Slurry work. And much more. Plus being Army. Army surplus basically gave them for free during the wars for the farmers to produce 10 times more crops for the soldiers. So it would be the best suitable rig. Yes they are 6x6 rigs. With duals in the back or full float tires for hauling. I believe spin tires has one in their game for reference. But that would give us a pretty grand older rig that helped prevent evil from conquering the world. Or for foreign maps. The Opel Blitz was a 6 wheel single Axel semi built from 1935-1950.

But 60's-80's doesn't mean it wouldn't fit. Cause a ton of trucks were made in 6 wheel to 14 wheel configuration. As gas was not an issue. And Most manufacturers had trucks like the GMC Brigadier come in 6 wheel 4500 2.5 ton size up to 9500 road tractor and tri-axle severe duty form for heavy logging and construction. As the economy was booming in the production industry.

It's not that the era wouldn't fit but the loader in the classic pack is small. A little single axle would work better for the size. If you want military a m37 would be a good fit. For the size you are talking a ford l series would be great they are the most common grain trucks in my area.

Oh. If you are talking about the Guldner G40 loader. I personally never use that. As the loader is not able to handle wound bales. I always use the MF240 or 20D/20B for a loader. Or if I go with the Fortschritt 320-A. I have never gotten into the G40 loader. Cause it's lack of functionality kills it for any use on my farm. Sorry I wasn't saying use a tiny dump truck to fit with that loader. As would see zero use and therefore never get downloaded.

Just cause I use part of the pack. Doesn't mean I go deep in for the entire pack. Like the BSM MF pack. All I use in that is the round baler, the choppers, box planter on larger 4-6 acre fields, and chisel plow. Otherwise I never use the 3000 series and rarely use the 600 series..

I just know that putting smaller older rigs would benefit console players in general. Not saying be era pack specific....

I Agree, something generic would be fine for me. Just small(6-12,000 l) and older looking. I meant the 'Zil' truck from Altenstein because it is so generic looking.
As for the G40 front loader. Back in '13 on xbox360 I made my first ever mixed rations with one of them, with the 500l bales, it was painful lol.

Well we all agree on one thing we need dump trucks.

Agreed. Cause a lack of solid dump trucks and solid flatbeds. And slurry tanker rigs has made the farm experience a little dull.

No problem, i've posted it for give an idea for a mod, a valid alternative to pick ups like the Rodeo, as everytime that i transported wool from point to point with that, i flipped many times with the pallets at 45 km/h.
The Lupetto, like the other OM models has a great stability, as it is very heavy (5 tons)
I have a dream...That one day there will be a Fiat 400/500 series on consoles.
Probably playing on De Terra Italica or Estancia Lapacho,with a MF 600 without cab by BlackSheep-Modding or one of the tractors from the Farming Classics' pack by Dogface.

As I am Italian, i can confirm that these Piaggio Ape are everywhere in Italy, and it would be wonderful to have one on Modhub, even Lizard-branded.
But, i can assure you, this thing is slow, and when i say slow i mean it's slower than a tractor or a moped. And it isn't the safest vehicle of all time, since it has three wheels and it's very lightweight.
Here's a video i found some years ago that it shows a 1981 Ape:

Okay so this is a thing. And I am sure it wouldn't require much for the APN to have a invisible hitch either. And I have mentioned this about the fahr sickle bar having it's own spliced PTO. Now anyway I know we have had enough annoyance on console with the APN not having an allocated way to self load a wagon. Well on this site you can see that the Fahr APN has it's own low opening wagon that the bales flow into after every 5th bale is produced.

Now Dog face how hard would it be to produce a low opening flat wagon that can hook up behind the Fahr APN. With about 16 inch tires. And has a cage like the Bucher self propelled forage harvester? And basically is just able to haul 30-40 bales. Cause naturally being in motion. The bales will fall and the cage can hold them in place. And a one man operation can easily stop. Get in the wagon. Throw the bales to the back of the wagon when needed to make room. Similar to the catapult balers.

Cause there was a farmer who did this for years with a new holland baler that didn't have a bale launcher feature. And he could easily do 200 bales in 3 wagons by himself a day.

But this would be easy for console without needing a script as you just use a hitch feature for the APN. And a wagon that clears below the bale drop rack. And allows for self loading and unload. As the unloading is easier than anything with the conveyor. But takes almost an entire day on x5 time by yourself.

This image shows how to do it without scripts. The force of the flow of the bales help with the loading. I see Giants made the bale collector. Cause scripts like the item pick up lacked in 2011. But this idea is natural. Plus like I said. And invisible hitch on the baler won't bother me. Cause this set up would boost the popularity of this pack.

Just looking around at more Fahr equipment to help give you an entire pack. Here is a Fahr Flail chopper that can directly cut grass and crops like wheat, canola, and barley. As well as process windrows of grass.
