Hey Ford:
Do you mean you can't fill it with something else after you dump the TMR in the cows' trough? Does the SYMBOL on the lower-right continue to show that there's TMR in the wagon, but the amount shows zero? I've run into that. too. I think that it has something to do with the fact that TMR also fills up the silage for your cows and unless you have both maxed out it will give you that bug. I got around it in two ways: 1.By editing the vehicles.xml file to remove it (which you can't do) and 2.Using a dedicated tipper for TMR.

I think what he's trying to say is that TMR requires Silage/Hay/Straw... once you use a conveyor to put one of those ingredients in the mixing wagon, you can't use a conveyor to put either of the otther two components in the wagon.

Is that the issue Ford?

I have done it that way without trouble. It must be an actual mixing trailer NOT just a tipper. I actually have run two conveyors to a single point and had one feed from a hay pile at the very same time as the second one was feeding from the silage pile. I did it that way to speed up the loading, then move to the straw conveyor since it was not equal to the silage and hay.

Ford,

In your steps to reproduce you say "fill". You don't mean fill the mixer with one (the first ingredient) do you? You would only add 1/3 of the first, then 1/3 of the next and then the last. I know it isnt exactly 1/3. I'm gonna recheck this in a while, but I have definitely done this successfully in the past.

I should note that I have not used this method since the advent of the mod silo that stores the silage, hay and straw. I fill the silo and then fill the mixer from the silo pipe. I'll check the conveyor method and report back here.

Ford,

I probably don't understand exactly how you are doing this... I just tried it the way I used to do it and it worked just like it had for me in the past.

I used the siloking Duo 1814 mixer wagon, one grimme so 80-22 conveyor and one lizard to feed from piles on the ground onto the grimme. I made a pile of about 4000l straw and on opposite side of the same field I made a pile of hay of 6000l. I loaded the straw into the mixer, then moved the belts to the hay pile. Moved the mixer under the belt now located at the hay pile. It loaded no trouble. This gave me 10,000l of chaff in the mixer (I think that is what is is until you add the final ingredient which then causes it to become TMR) then I drove the mixer under the pipe of my silo and topped off with silage.

Did you try making a video of how you are doing it? Have you done this in the past or just trying it recently?

I am on PS4, seasons, NOT the platinum mod, several other mods, and Altenstein.

I was completely off on what I thought it was. I've never tried to mix TMR using this method as I too found the TMR placeable shortly after I first started playing FS17. Sorry that I can't provide any help on this, but I will try to run my own test to see if I can accomplish it. I have some silage fermenting on my test map right now. Which TMR wagon are you using Ford?

It's the Peecon 64,000 l one. I've got a video, I'm trying to get it to work

Are you using the new "slow" conveyor belt?

Ford, it is the Peecon! I just tried it and it doesn't work. I am using everything else just as I did with the smaller mixer which works just fine!

It is like it doesn't like straw? I unloaded the mixer to empty, then tried to load in straw first and it wouldn't even take that!
