John Deere 8000 Series Forage Harvesters 2.0.0.0

FS 19 mods showcase: The John Deere 8000 Series forage harvesters for Farming Simulator 19. (The download guide is below.)

This strong looking mod used to be many player’s favorite tool for creating forage back in FS 17. Now it’s ready to do the same job in FS19.

It’s really a great pack that the modder has put together. Not only are you getting the JD harvester. The mod also includes no less than 5 different headers (more about them later.)

Some Shop Options

Want tracks? Or twin wheels for the front of the harvester? You can get it inside the shop. This is also where you can add German license plates and an Agravis logo to your machine.

For the headers, there are no customization options.

Lots of headers.

The JD forage harvester has some design configurations. You can have it with or without license plates. There’s also a custom logo you can buy.

Other stuff: The doors can be opened and closed. All of the model uses the FS19 texture system. There are lights everywhere where it’s supposed to, inside of the cabin included.

Won’t Cut Grass

We did not get any errors while taking the forage harvester for a spin. But several users have reported that it won’t cut grass.

The modder has acknowledged the error. There will be a future update where this bug has been fixed. The update is here.

Version 2.0.0.0 – Grass Fix

(Updated October 11, 2019) The second version of the John Deere forage harvester is here. Along with it, you get an animated hand throttle, animated pedals, and new textures.

The updated version includes new animations for the monitors inside the cab, new audio, and a dual front wheels option as well.

And the bug with the Zum ProfiCut 620 mower header, which prevented cutting of grass, has been fixed.

  1. There’s an error in this that they’ve had since version 1, surprised it hasn’t been fixed yet. One option with corn is to “green chop” it meaning you can harvest it in the 4th green stage.

    open then xml file for each cutter and search for “allowsForageGrowhtState” notice how growth is spelt wrong? Fix the typo and you can now green chop.
