FS17 Joskin

The Joskin Betimax RDS 7500 is an Animal Transport available in Farming Simulator 17. It is the smaller and cheaper of the two Animal Transport models in the base game, capable of transporting a small group of Animals. Its Drawbar (Ball) attachment allows it to be towed by most vehicles.

Advantages Edit

  • Somewhat Cheap: The Betimax RDS 7500 costs a modest $24,000 - almost a third as much as the larger Michieletto AM19. For the Betimax RDS 7500 to pay for itself, it needs to transport at least 120 animals to/from the Animal Store.
  • Universal Attachment: The Betimax RDS 7500 features a Drawbar (Ball) attachment point, which means it can be attached to any of the Cars, Tractors and Trucks available in the base game.

Disadvantages Edit

  • Lower Capacity: The Betimax RDS 7500 carries less than half as many animals than the Michieletto AM19. However, even this low capacity should be just fine for early-game Animal Husbandry, since you are unlikely to need to transport too many animals at this stage. However with a well-developed animal business, it might be too small for the large number of animals that will need to be transported on a daily basis.
