This is your chance to download the classic John Deere 8960 and 8970 tractors for Farming Simulator 19. This FS19 mod is ready to download thanks to the great work of Custom Modding and 7L Farms.
We’ve seen these powerful tractors in previous versions of the game. Now, they have gotten a proper FS19 update, with new dirt textures and a fresh UDIM look.

AI Worker Fix
A lot of the articulated machinery in Farming Simulator 19 is hard to manage for the AI workers. The result is that AI workers often need help instead of providing it.
Deathwish Mods has edited the John Deere mod to make it work better when you put a helping hand behind the wheel.
Here are some pictures of the updated mod:
