This article provides an overview of equipment available in Farming Simulator 17.

Tractors Edit

Tractors are the largest and most widely used category of vehicles in the game. They are capable of towing or operating nearly all of the implements available.

Main article: Tractors (Farming Simulator 17)

Front Loaders Edit

Front Loaders are used to transport and load various goods. Some are attached to Tractors to enhance their capabilities, while others are self-contained vehicles.

Trucks Edit

Large vehicles used to haul heavy loads, such as crops, Logs or other vehicles, such as Loaders. They are immensely powerful, and can travel at high speeds, making them hugely useful for deliveries.

Harvesters Edit

Harvesters are vehicles that are capable of harvesting crops. These are specialized machines that perform functions that an ordinary Tractor cannot.

Headers Edit

Headers are the implements used by Harvesters to harvest crops. Each Header has different harvesting and working capabilities.

Main article: Headers (Farming Simulator 17)

Forage Harvesters Edit

Forage Harvesters are used to turn crops into Chaff, which can be converted to Silage for animal feed or biogas profit.

Forage Harvester Headers Edit

These are headers used by Forage Harvesters, with similar specialized uses to conventional Headers.

Potato HarvestingEdit

Potato Harvesting is a two stage process. First the tops are removed with a Haulm Topper. Next, a harvester specifically designed for potatoes is used. The Grimme Tectron 415 performs both of these operations in one pass.

Beet Harvesting Edit

Beet Harvesting is a two stage process, similar to Potato Harvesting. First the tops are removed with a Haulm Topper. Next, a harvester specifically designed for beets is used. The Grimme Maxtron 620 performs both of these operations in one pass.

Tippers Edit

Tippers are designed to transport crops and unload them quickly by tipping or tilting. Tippers are always loaded and pulled by other equipment.

Auger Wagons Edit

Auger Wagons can load crops from one vehicle and unload them into another.

Plows Edit

Plows can be used to prepare a field for planting or sowing crops. However they are usually used only for creating new fields, expanding existing fields, or joining two fields together. Fields must be plowed if changing crops between those which use different types of seeders.

Fertilizer SpreadersEdit

Fertilizer Spreaders spread pelletized Fertilizer. Like sprayers, these machines are topped up from the fertilizer dispenser in the farm square or at the Garden Center.

Manure SpreadersEdit

Manure Spreaders use solid Manure produced by Cows to fertilize a field.

Slurry TanksEdit

Slurry Tanks use liquid Manure produced by Cows to fertilize a field.

Main article: Slurry Tanks (Farming Simulator 17)

Weeders Edit

Weeders pull weeds out between small grown crops, improving the field's state.

Mowers Edit

Mowers cut Grass and leave it on the ground.

Main article: Mowers (Farming Simulator 17)

Tedders Edit

Tedders instantly turn cut Grass to Dried Grass.

Main article: Tedders (Farming Simulator 17)

Windrowers Edit

Windrowers form Grass, Hay, or Straw into a single line for easier baling or loading.

Main article: Windrowers (Farming Simulator 17)

Loading Wagons Edit

Loading Wagons pick up cut Grass, Hay, or Straw.

Main article: Loading Wagons (Farming Simulator 17)

Baling Technologies Edit

Balers pick up Hay or Straw to create Bales. Other machines collect Bales, and still others convert them to Silage.

Chainsaws Edit

Handheld tools for cutting down Trees.

Main article: Chainsaws (Farming Simulator 17)

Forestry Equipment Edit

Forestry involves Trees, i.e. cutting, transporting and re-planting them. The crops harvested from this activity are Logs and Wood Chips.

Wheel Loaders Edit

Wheel Loaders are used to stack and load various goods. They are the most powerful loading vehicles available, and can carry huge quantities of material.

Telehandlers Edit

Telehandlers are used to stack and load various goods. They have smaller carrying capabilities and less power than Wheel Loaders, but are smaller and more maneuverable.

Skid Steer Loaders Edit

Skid Steer Loaders are used to stack and load various goods. They are smaller and more maneuverable than Wheel Loaders or Telehandlers, but have the least power and load capacity when compared to those vehicles.

Animals Edit

Equipment used to transport, feed, and provide Water to animals.

Main article: Animals (Farming Simulator 17)

Levelers Edit

Levelers are used to move Chaff and Silage and level heaps in bunker silos.

Miscellaneous Edit

Equipment that cannot be classified under any of the other categories; respectively, a Grass roller and a mobile Fuel tank.

Dollys Edit

The Dolly is used to connect a Fifth Wheel Semi Trailer to a Tractor with a Ball Hitch.

Low Loaders Edit

These trailers can be used by Trucks to transport vehicles. They can also attach to a Dolly.

Header Trailers Edit

Header Trailers can transport Headers safely on the road.

Cars Edit

Small vehicles used to travel swiftly. They can carry Pallets as well.

Weights Edit

Used to counter balance the weight of attached tools. Can also be used to connect a tool to a 3-Point tractor hitch.

Pallets Edit

Portable units that contain useful materials. They can be transported by a Loader and carried by a Car, or an appropriate Trailer.

Belt Systems Edit

Conveyor belts are an alternative way to load Trailers.

Placeables Edit

Objects and buildings. Some provide income at varying amounts; others store materials, and still others are merely for decorative purposes. Trees round out this category.
