Here’s 3 GEA Houle liquid manure spreader mods for all fans of Canadian farming Equipment. These Farming Simulator 19 mods are a direct convert of the FS17 versions. The spreaders haven’t gotten the FS19 texture brush-up… Still the trailers look fine inside the game.
Canadian company J. Houle & Fils Inc. had manufactured farming equipment since the 1950s when it was bought by the German company GEA. That’s why you’ll often see manure spreaders named GEA Houle.
North American Liquid Manure Mod
I know authenticity is vital to many Farming Simulator players. When playing on North American maps, the tractors, trucks, and equipment should look like they belong there.
If you’re a fan of Canadian or American farming, and you want your farm to look as North American as possible, you’re safe when adding the GEA Houle pack. These liquid manure spreaders are sold in both the US and Canada.
Houle as FS19 Mods
The GEA Houle spreader pack contains 3 different models. The sizes differ also. Here’s what you get:
- Houle 4000 twin axle spreader. Capacity: 18169 Liters
- Houle 6100 tri axle spreader. Capacity: 27633 Liters
- Houle 7900 quad axle spreader. Capacity: 35960 Liters
It’s a cool looking troika of spreaders. They have a massive appearance. And they work as you would expect. Thanks to Giants’ new spreader animations, it actually looks like it’s animal waste coming out of the nozzles. And that’s cool.
The GEA Houle pack has existed as mods since Farming Simulator 2011. And it kind of shows. The trailers looked like a million bucks 6 years ago. Today, they look a bit outdated.
The mods have been worked on since the first release. Today’s version has hydraulic hoses for instance. But these are static, not dynamic. Hopefully, this will come in a future update.
No Log Errors
Appalaches Modding, who has converted the spreaders for FS19, are looking into adding dirt textures in a future update. The team will also work on using the new UDIM texture system. Be sure to follow their Facebook page for new versions (link below.)
I can’t find any log errors when using the FS19 versions of the spreaders. But the 6100 tri axle version seems somewhat unbalanced. It won’t rest on the jack when unattached.
All in all, the GEA Houle spreader pack is a nice addition for everyone seeking a North American equipment accuracy in Farming Simulator 19.
