Farming Simulator 19 mod showcase: The Ponsse Bear 8-Wheel Forestry Harvester, modded by HJ Stingray, HJ-Maschinenbau, and MR-Forsttechnik.
This mod resembles the most powerful model from the Ponsse real-life harvester line-up. And it’s a fantastic replica.
Note that the visibility from the cabin is way more reduced compared to the Scorpion King. The crane position makes it hard to see the cutter head from the cab when driving straight.
Ponsse Bear In-Game Features
Colors – You have a lot of color choices for the rims when you buy the harvester in the shop.
Wheels – There are several wheel types from Trelleborg available. You can choose one of many different track types from Olofsfors for your tires too.
Design – There are options for adding a front blade or a protection frame (or both) to the harvester. You can lower and raise the blade after activating it via the control group switcher (button “G” on your keyboard.)
FS19 Ponsse Bear Mod Specs
I particularly like the option of equipping a blade to the harvester’s front. It comes in handy when you want to make nice looking log piles that are easy to pick up with a forwarder.
