There have been several stationary feed mixers through the history of Farming Simulator games. Veterans surely remember the amazing TMR Mixing Station that Marhu made for FS 2013. There are more recent builds, as well, like Kastor’s mixing plant for Farming Simulator 19.
Most of the existing mods have in common that they are works of fiction. But now, finally, someone is working on a Total Mixed Ration mixer based on a real-world mixing plant.
Kuhn is the Inspiration
A 3D designer called DJ Rittek is working on a stationary feed mixing plant for Farming Simulator 19. The project will be a replica of a real solution that Kuhn offers to dairy and cattle farmers worldwide. The “Kuhn Feeding Process” works much like the mixing stations you’re already used to in the Farm Sim games.
- First, you add the needed ingredients in different bunkers.
- Then, a conveyor transports silage, straw, and grass into a stationary mixer.
- From the mixer, a new conveyor fills the trailers.
This video, by Kuhn, demonstrates the process (note that this is NOT the actual addon.)
A Farming Simulator 19 Mod
DJ Rittek is working on creating a replica of the Kuhn stationary mixing plant for Farming Simulator 19. From what I understand, you’ll be able to buy the different parts separately. Then, you have to put the pieces together to get a working TMR solution.
The mod will include separate bunkers for silage and grass. There will also be a bale shredder for adding straw to the mix. It will have fixed Kuhn mixers in three different sizes, and it will use the GlobalCompany script for functionality.
No Release Date
DJ Rittek is currently working on finishing the mod. He has not revealed a release date. It will be ready when it’s ready. Oh, and due to the scripts needed to make the plant work, this mod will only be available on PC and Mac.
I’m looking forward to trying this TMR mixer. I’m more than happy with the current FS 19 stationary TMR mixers, but I admit it’s refreshing to get something based on reality, as well. You can see more images and follow the build on the Rittek.de Facebook page.
