Farming Simulator 19 addon showcase: The Väderstad Rapid A 600S and A 800S seeders, modified by Jens Ejvinsson.
First, it’s great to have a proper version of the Rapid A 800S in FS19. It’s also cool that this pack of seeders has some realistic options, like color choices and tanks that can be enlarged and added.
Then, there’s the tramline option. Do you want your farm sim to be as realistic as possible? If so, you should really try this mod, just for the tramline’s sake.
You can buy a larger capacity seeds tank in the shop. When you do, the overall seeds capacity increases to 5,000 liters.
Note that the base versions don’t have fertilizer compartments. But you can buy an extra fertilizer tank for 10,000, which adds a 1,600 liters fertilizer hopper to both seeders.
Besides the tank extension options, you also have the opportunity to paint your seeder in black.
Tramlines, or controlled traffic farming (CTF), is a system where the seeder creates permanent tracks in the fields, used for spraying during growth. Real-world CTF increases profit and grain quality.
The Väderstad addon is capable of creating tramlines. On PC, you can press Left Ctrl + Y to select the tramline options (see the Help menu on consoles.) You have four different choices:
- Tramlines off.
- Narrow tramlines.
- Normal tramlines.
- And finally, wide lines.
Note that playing on 4x maps might not give you the desired results because of how the FS 19 textures and foliage system works. But when used on standard sized maps, the end result is nice driving paths for your spreading equipment.

If you’re “only” a player, you have the pleasure of using one of the best Farming Simulator seeder add-ons to date, when you download this one. It is really that good.

Version 188.8.131.52 – A Cool Tramline Fix
(Updated December 4, 2019) Jens Ejvinsson has fixed the Väderstad seeders mod. And I like how he has done it. Now, you have to buy the tramline function separately in the shop. Then, back up the seeder close to it, to attach it.
To use it, you have to select it before turning it on. You can still toggle between the tramline widths for narrow, normal, or wide tracks.
This elegant solution takes care of several things:
- It no longer conflicts with the Cultivator create fields addon.
- There’s also a fix for the seeder destroying seeds when cornering or stopping.
