Bruns MBA 12000 Lime & Fertilizer Spreader

Farming Simulator 19 mods showcase: The Bruns MBA 12000 lime and fertilizer spreader by VertexDezign. If you just want to know how to download it, head to the bottom of this presentation.

Here you have a beautiful FS 19 reproduction of the MBA 1200 trailed spreader. The real-world inspiration for the mod is made by the German company August Bruns Landmaschinen GmbH.

Extra Features

I really enjoy the way this spreader works. It requires more player inputs than the base game equipment.

  1. First, you need to open the slider (see the Help menu.)
  2. Then, you can fire up the spreaders.
  3. Now, lower the steering wheel to activate the conveyor belt.
  4. Finally, you need to start driving for the spreading to work.

The spreader simply won’t spread until the steering wheel, and the conveyor is engaged, and the tractor is moving. The reason? The belt speed is controlled by the trailer wheel. When you stop, the spreading stops too. I didn’t notice adaptive spreading, though (more lime or fertilizer usage when driving faster. PC and Mac players can use the Variable Spray Usage mod for that.)

Amazing Modding

Vertex Dezign is one of the best modding teams in the history of Farming Simulator games. The Bruns spreader is another triumph for the team. It’s so great, in many ways. The modeling, the texturing, and (of course) the programming is above most of the others.
