John Deere 690 Large Square Baler

FS19 mods presentation: The John Deere 690 large square baler, built from scratch by the ARM Team.

This is one of the best John Deere large baler addons for Farming Simulator 19. It has been around in several of the earlier games. I’m so happy it’s back in ’19.

There’s no price for pointing out the resemblance to the Krone Big Pack 120-80. This is what I’ve heard: Back in the days, John Deere bought some designs of Krone. A blueprint, that became the 690, was one of them.


There’s not much you can configure. What you see is what you get. Yes, there are a couple of color options for the tires. But that’s all.

I have no problems accepting the shortage of customization options. The JD baler looks stunning as it is.

  1. Hi, i have just downloaded this baler and put it into mods folder, but it doesn’t show on the modlist before you start the game. Any suggestions?

    • Hi Lazna97, and thanks for commenting 🙂 It might be a mod conflict. Have you tested it in a mods folder that has no other mods? You can rename your current mods folder to, let’s say, “modsonhold”, then create a new folder “mods”. Put the baler in the clean folder and do a test.

      If that solves it, you are faced with the painstaking task of adding one mod at the time to find the “offender”, the mod that interferes with the baler.

      Hope this helps.
