Amazone Cayron 200
See also: Amazone Cayron 200
The Amazone Cayron 200 is a Plow available in Farming Simulator 15. It is the second-smallest plow in the game. This machine is designed to prepare fields for seeding, but like all other Plows it is very ungainly at this task, and inferior to any Cultivator. A plow is nonetheless absolutely required if you wish to expand or join fields.
The Cayron 200 is composed of a long shaft, with a wheel at the rear and a Three-point hitch at the front. Attached to the shaft is a device consisting of rows of metal blades. When the Cayron 200 is lowered and run across a field, the blades will dig into the ground, making the soil suitable for seeding.
The Cayron 200's Three-point hitch can be attached to any tractor in the game. When attached this way and lowered, the Cayron 200 will plow any field it is dragged over. It will destroy crops as it passes, no matter what growth stage they are in. It does not remove any fertilizer that may still be in the ground. The plowed ground may be seeded with any crop, without any need for further cultivation.
The Cayron 200 does not need any power to operate, even though the shop claims it requires 110 kW / 150 hp. It is a very heavy device however, meaning that small tractors will be unable to drive properly when attached to the Cayron 200, even if they do somehow manage to drag it around. You may need to attach a Weight to the tractor's front side, to balance even a mid-sized tractor. While plowing, the Cayron 200 enforces a speed limit of 17 km/h.
Like all other Plows, the Cayron 200 will extend diagonally behind the tractor as it moves, and either to the left or the right of the tractor's central axis. Like all Plows, the Cayron 200 has the ability to rotate its blades from left to right on command. Hired Workers will alternate between left and right automatically, with each pass. When plowing manually, you may use whichever side you prefer at any given time - there is no fundamental difference. The Cayron 200's working width is technically 2.5 meters - but that may grow or shrink depending on the exact angle between the Plow and its towing tractor.
- Note: The diagonal orientation of the Cayron 200 makes it difficult to properly align it for straight lines across a field. As mentioned above, its working width is also prone to unexpected changes. This problem affects all Plows in the game, especially when using Hired Workers. Since regular Plowing is not functionally different from Cultivation, consider using a Cultivator for this task.
In order to use the Cayron 200 to expand or join fields, it is necessary to activate the "Allow Create Fields" option. Once the Plow is lowered into the ground, it will create new field sections wherever it passes. This topic is more complicated, and is discussed separately in the article in Plows. Note that whenever you hire a Worker for this device, the "Create Fields" option is automatically turned off. As a result, Hired Workers cannot create any new field areas for you.
