John Deere 9RX Series US & EU version 1.0

(Article is updated with a suggested Courseplay fix.)

Are you ready to download both the North American and the European version of the John Deere 9RX series tractors for Farming Simulator 19? (You’ll find the download link below.)

The summer of ’19 suddenly became a whole lot more fun. Finally, John Deere 9RX from Custom Modding is here. And boy, it was definitely worth the wait 🙂 This is one of the coolest, most beastly, great tractor mods we’ve ever driven.

Custom Modding’s 9RX is very detailed (too detailed for consoles.) But still, the file size is way below 75 mb, which means the team behind has done an excellent optimization job.

EU & US Versions

It’s great of CM to think of their fans on both sides of the pond. There’s a US / Canadian version. And there’s a European version. The version changes are done in the shop.

There are three different exhaust pipe options to choose from, two backweight options. The interior has custom animations. And the dirt textures are as close to real-life as it gets.

Impressive track options

One of the things that impress us the most are the tracks. There’s a total of four different tracks available (36″, 30″, 24″, and 18″.) And there are three settings for the axle track width (80″, 88″, and 120″.)

Here’s a short video presentation of the JD:

Courseplay Fix

(Updated August 19, 2019) Some players report about problems getting the tractor to work correctly with Courseplay. Thanks to Vincent, there is a fix that you could try. But I need to warn you. It involves editing the XML files, so please, make a backup of the mod before you try this solution.

Here’s Vincent’s suggestion:

  1. Unzip the FS19_CM_JD_9RX .zip file.
  2. Open the folder, and look for this file: 9RX.xml
  3. Open it in Notepad or Notepad++.

Ok. With the XML file open, look for this section (starts at line 592):

<ackermannSteering rotSpeed="25" rotMax="15" rotCenterWheel1="5" rotCenterWheel2="7"/>
<articulatedAxis componentJointIndex="1" anchorActor="0" rotSpeed="-25" rotMax="31" rotMin="-31" aiRevereserNode="aiReverserNode"/>

Now, replace the values above, whit these ones:

<ackermannSteering rotSpeed="30" rotMax="15" rotCenter="0 -0.302"/>​
<articulatedAxis componentJointIndex="1" anchorActor="0" rotSpeed="-30" rotMax="31" rotMin="-31" aiRevereserNode="aiReverserNode"/>

When you’re finished, zip the file back together and give it the same name as before: FS19_CM_JD_9RX .zip.

This should work. But, again, make a backup of the original mod first.

  1. hello it’s an amazing mood great job, but it does not work properly with the courseplay will that be corrected? 😉

    • Hi HERETIK, and thanks for your comment. I can’t speak for the Custom Modding. But I know they’re working on an update. Maybe that will solve the problem 🙂

      • hello all of abors sorry for my bad english i’m not english but i find the courseplay problem.

        it is a misplacement of the center of rotation of the tractor, the courseplay can not follow the lines in the bend.

        to solve the problem you have to replace some value in the file: 9rx.xlm

        he take find this part:

        and replace value with this:

        and now it works perfectly with the courseplay 🙂

        hoping to have helped some courseplay fan to play with this beautiful mod 🙂

          • Hi HERETIK – And thank you so much for your helpful comment 🙂 Unfortunately, the safety mechanisms of the site won’t allow code inserts in the comments (too many sites have been hacked that way…) But if you want to, you could send me the code by email (admin [at] and I will make it public.
