Well folks, it’s here. The final Fact Sheet Friday before Farming Simulator 19 officially releases on November 20. You may have seen some coverage of the game on YouTube and Twitch already, and I too have been playing the game, working on putting my initial thoughts together in a review in progress to be shared with you next week.

This week’s fact sheets show us some pretty seriously large equipment. Here they are!
Fact Sheet #27A gives us the Case IH Axial-Flow 9240 and 3162 TerraFlex Draper 45FT:
The Case IH Axial-Flow 9240 isn’t new to Farming Simulator fans, and I’m sure many will be delighted to see it returning yet again. This combine harvester gives both the John Deere S790 and the New Holland CR10.90 a run for their money, with a capacity of 14,400 litres and 634 horsepower. It looks as though you’ll be able to swap out the crawler track for wide tires if you’d prefer that look, as well as choose the brand of the tires.
The header for the 9240 is the 3162 TerrFlex Draper 45FT, whose name explains most of what you need to know. This standard grain header is bound to be the largest in the game at 13.7 metres (45 feet) of working width – though there will be other 45 foot headers as well. The working speed with this header is the standard 10 km/h (6 mph), and as with most (if not all) combine headers, there aren’t any options to speak of. Regardless, this header is sure to get you through even the largest fields in a short time, bringing in the grain at a rapid pace. And if it’s grain you need to haul…
Fact Sheet #27B features the Case IH Magnum Series and Kinze 1051 Grain Cart:
I’ve seen many players excited to see Kinze announced for Farming Simulator 19, and here we get our first close-up look at one of their grain carts. This auger wagon (also known as a chaser bin) can hold 37,000 litres and has several tire options, including a crawler track and wide tires. It will require 240 horsepower to operate, so you’ll need a relatively strong medium-sized tractor to pull and unload this wagon. It’s nice to see a new entry in this area of the shop, and the light blue will add some variety to the colours you see out in your fields!
The Case IH Magnum series of tractors is yet another long time staple of the Farming Simulator series, and it’s great to see it return yet again. This is a nice large tractor that offers the ability to change its tire setup many different ways. Many other tractors offer this ability, but the Magnum is one of few that provide the option of narrow twin wheels, which may give players some incentive to try it out. It also has a crawler track available. And with a range of 409 to 435 horsepower, it can pull quite a number of the larger cultivators and seeders available in the game. And speaking of cultivators…
Fact Sheet #28A shows off the Challenger MT700 Series and Amazone Cenius 8003-2TX Super Cultivator:
Challenger is back with the same models that we saw in Farming Simulator 17, and they’re obviously just as beastly this time around. With a range of 380 to 431 horsepower, this machine will pull many of the larger implements available. It may have a slower top speed than most tractors, but that doesn’t mean it can’t get the job done! The MT700 also has the option of 3m tracks, which are slightly thinner than the standard setup, but set wider on the tractor.
The Amazone Cenius 8003-2TX Super is a relatively mid-sized cultivator, offering an 8 meter (26 foot) working width to the tune of a 400 horsepower pulling requirement. Working at 15 km/h (9 mph) will likely be standard across most, if not all, of the cultivators in the game, so this looks like it will be a nice choice for players looking for a fairly large cultivator without breaking the bank or needing a Case IH Quadtrac.
And that is all she wrote for Farming Simulator 19‘s fact sheets! I appreciate those who have read them over the past weeks and months, and provided kind feedback about them. This doesn’t mean the end of Scholarly Gamers’ coverage of Farming Simulator 19 though, so be sure to stay tuned for even more to come both before and after release!
