Does anyone know if they're going to bring back the Excavator from 17 ?

It is a work-in-progress from Blacksheep Modding. No estimated release date, but it is in the works.

Did you guys actually use this thing in fs17? I just could not with the controls the way they were. I tried using it for logging but switching between the scorpion king and this thing is a giant pain.

I tried using it to load some sugarcane but couldn't get used to it at all.

It was designed to mimic the control of the joysticks in an excavator

I know, but it was still frustrating going from standard controls to this machine, I wish they had the option for either.

I think the only way for that is two separate machines, similar to how the fendt with the simulated gearbox is done.

I really liked the controls it just didn't have a function. A excavator is for digging and loading. You'd maybe use the logging attachments if you used the equipment for mainly digging and loading. Neat mod just doesn't have a role. This is coming from a excavator operator that farms.

This was handy use I found. The logging was painful. In most cases I'd of been better off pushing over trees and pinching them between my bucket. Something that would be tough to work in game mechanics. Excavator is handy with tree clearing because you use the trunk as a lever to push out the root ball.
