It's a nicemodification of the base game's John Deere 8RT tractors, with severaladditions.

Localization Options

If youcompare actual 8RTs across the Atlantic, you'll notice there are somedifferences. American and Canadian versions will often have longer axletrack widths than European versions. This has to do with EU road trafficregulations, limiting how wide on-road vehicles can be.

There areother distinctions too. Steenkamp Modding has tried to incorporate thesedissimilarities into the mod.

Added Options

SteenkampModding's John Deere 8RT has a total of 5 options for how wide the tracks canbe. There are also 4 alternatives for axle track spacing.

Then, thereis the EU and the US configurations. Most notably, it changes parts of thetractor's front and rear visuals. There are some options for the front weightsand the beacons as well.
