Farming Simulator 19 mod presentation: The Abbey 3500 RT tandem vacuum tanker by 4D Modding.
This is first-class modding. It makes spreading slurry fun again! It’s also a fantastic representative of Irish farming equipment in the Farming Simulator games. The real-world equivalent is made by the Irish company Abbey Machinery.
So Many Alternatives
4D Modding’s version of the Abbey tanker gives you a lot of options. First, there are all the color options for the body of the tanker, the hoses, and the tire rims.
Note that there are two tankers to choose from. The galvanized version doesn’t give you color options for the tank.
Then, you can add a lot of extras to it. There are visual goodies, like an extra hose, various license plates, work lights, an air tank, and a toolbox. Other, addable objects have functions:
- An overhead refill boom.
- One auto-filling arm.
- And rear injector linkage.
And this is where you need to stay focused. If you want to use injectors with the tanker, you must choose the correct configuration.
Press “X” to activate the hose animation.
The overhead boom is mouse controlled.
So is the Autofilling arm.
You can add different types of applications to the tanker. Just remember to equip it with the appropriate rear linkage in the shop. You can use both the Samson TD 12 and the SD 700 injectors.
The Glide Fix 15 from the Holmer DLC works too.

About the Errors
I noticed a couple of warnings in the log after using the Abbey tanker. Here are some examples:
Error: Failed to open xml file 'data/shared/assets/reflectors/lizard/redOrangeRectangle_01.xml'.
Warning: Wheel brand 'BKT' is not defined for 'vehicle.wheels.wheelConfigurations.wheelConfiguration(0)'!

Note that the mod works just fine. And 4D Modding is known for eliminating bugs with his addons. I’m sure there will be a fix soon
