Tractors are vehicles capable of towing and operating almost any type of equipment in the game. A single tractor can perform nearly any job on your farm given the correct equipment, with very few exceptions. Although tractors are typically not the best vehicles for most jobs (e.g. forestry, towing tippers, stacking pallets), a good tractor can fill in for any expensive machine you can't afford yet, and often costs much less to buy.
Farming Simulator 19 offers 43 different models of tractors by default. There are many differences between these models, but the most important differences tend to be cost and horsepower. A stronger tractor typically costs more, but will have an easier time working with heavier equipment; Whereas the smaller tractors are easy to maneuver around your farm. Additionally, many tractors have special upgrades that can make them more useful than other tractors.
List of Tractors[edit | edit source]
Below is a list of all tractor models in Farming Simulator 19. These tractors are split into four as explained below. At the Store, they can be found split into only three categories (with Large and Super-Large Tractors sharing a category).

Tractor Categories[edit | edit source]
Tractors differ from one another mostly by Horsepower. A tractor's horsepower determines how much weight it can pull comfortably, and therefore what Implements it can operate and what Trailers it can tow. Therefore, tractors can be split into rough groups to show which tractors are suitable for which jobs.
Small[edit | edit source]
Horsepower range: 75 - 145 HP
Small tractors are the cheapest and weakest of all tractors. Their low cost is pretty much their only advantage over other tractor categories. Most scenarios give the player at least one Small Tractor for free to start with, and more can easily be bought early on.
Small tractors are not really suitable for fieldwork, since they can only operate the smallest Implements. Almost every type of Implement (such as Sowing Machines, Cultivators, Mowers, etc.) includes at least one model that's small enough to be carried and operated by a Small Tractor. These small Implements are really quite small, and take a lot of time to process even a single small field.
Small tractors are technically capable of towing Tippers and Loading Wagons - but again, only the smallest models. Even the smallest tipper, when fully loaded, can pose a problem for a Small Tractor. Even a Car should be able to out-perform a Small Tractor when towing.
Most Small tractors can be fitted a Front Loading Arm, allowing them to move cargo and Pallets. With an arm installed, a Small Tractor is a relatively decent choice for Animal Husbandry work. Nonetheless, it's important to remember that a Small Tractor is a very light vehicle - they tend to tip over when lifting heavy cargo, or when making sharp turns while carrying such cargo. Driving carefully, and attaching a Weight to the back of the Tractor, can help mitigate this problem.
Overall, Small Tractors gradually become obsolete as you get the money to buy larger Tractor models.
Medium[edit | edit source]
Horsepower range: 140 - 280 HP
Medium Tractors are a significant step up from Small Tractors in many different ways, mostly thanks to their powerful engine and increased stability.
The engine of a Medium Tractor is powerful enough to operate medium field Implements, or a couple of small Implements simultaneously (e.g. two Mowers). When using these tools, a Medium tractor can complete its fieldwork a lot faster than a Small tractor would.
Medium Tractors are the best vehicles for operating a Front Loading Arm. They are much heavier than Small Tractors, and this weight gives them much-needed stability when front-loading heavy cargo; they don't tip over as easily. All Medium Tractors in the base game can be upgraded with Wheel Weights or even Twin Wheels, increasing stability even more. This Stability when Front-Loading, coupled with a Tractor's innate ability to operate machinery and perform a wide variety of different jobs, makes Medium Front-Loading Tractors some of the best Loaders for Animal Husbandry.
Finally, Medium Tractors are also powerful enough to tow most Tippers and Loading Wagons even when they are full of cargo. Medium Tractors are not very speedy, but if you need towing and can't get a faster (or stronger) vehicle to do it, a Medium Tractor should be able to fill in temporarily.
Large[edit | edit source]
Horsepower range: 280 - 450 HP
Large tractors are designed for field work, and have the necessary horsepower to operate any field machinery comfortably - with the exception of a few pieces of super-heavy equipment that require upwards of 500hp. Large implements make fieldwork - even on large fields - go smoothly and quickly. There are no vehicles more suitable for standard field work than Large tractors.
Large tractors are also very good at towing Containers, even when they are fully loaded. Large tractors generally have the highest Maximum Speed of all tractor categories, and can move both containers and machinery from place to place rather quickly. The largest of the Large tractors have no problem towing massive Tippers to your silo or selling point, although they are not as good as a Truck for this job.
Finally, note that Large Tractors do not have an attachment point for a Front Loading Arm, and therefore cannot do any lifting. If you need a powerful vehicle for this (e.g. for Silage work), consider buying a Wheel Loader or Telehandler instead.
Super-Large[edit | edit source]
Horsepower range: 380+ HP
Super-Large tractors are incredibly powerful machines that rival (or even surpass) Trucks in sheer horsepower - but their cost is respectively high. These gigantic vehicles can perform field work using any machinery with ease, but their primary purpose is to operate super-heavy Implements, which even Large tractors may struggle with.
Most Super-Large Tractors are fitted with a crawler track instead of wheels, giving them excellent traction on pretty much any surface. Wheeled Super-Large Tractors can instead be fitted with Triple Wheel upgrades to make them virtually impossible to flip over.
The strongest of the Super-Large tractors are actually powerful enough to pull a massive Tipper when it is fully loaded, even uphill. On some maps, they may perform better than the strongest Truck when pulling such tippers.
Upgrades[edit | edit source]
All Tractors in Farming Simulator 19 can receive upgrades at the Store (during purchase or later) or at a player-owned Workshop. These upgrades range from the extremely-useful (engine upgrades) to the completely cosmetic (paint jobs). All tractors feature at least one customization option, with the average being about 3 options.
Engine Upgrades[edit | edit source]
The most important customization option for tractors is an Engine Upgrade, which replaces the tractor's default engine with a stronger one. This increases the horsepower output of the engine, but also the purchase price and repair costs.
Once upgraded, the tractor will be able to work more comfortably with heavier pieces of equipment, and may even be able to operate equipment that it could not operate without the upgrade. A stronger engine can also suffer more Damage before becoming too weak to work.
The availability of engine upgrades means that you can buy a cheaper tractor at first, and then when more money is available you can upgrade that tractor to get a little more power out of it. This is often also much cheaper than buying a stronger tractor. Certain tractor models that are not very impressive without upgrades may become very competitive with a stronger engine.
Many tractors offer two or more engine upgrades. This allows you to upgrade your tractor a second or even third time when the money becomes available, boosting its strength even further.
For a full list of tractors including all upgraded-engine models, see Full Tractor List.
Wheel Upgrades[edit | edit source]
The majority of tractors in the game can have their wheels replaced with different versions. Available options include narrower wheels, wider wheels, wheel weights, or even double and triple wheels. Some tractors can have their wheels replaced with a Crawler Track, and tractors that already have a crawler track can have those tracks widened.
Narrow Wheels are only useful when the "Crop Destruction" option is turned on. Narrow Wheels do not destroy crops as they drive over the field, which is extremely useful when weeding or spraying a growing crop. The downside is that narrow wheels offer less traction (making it more difficult for the tractor to pull itself and its tools), and make it easier to flip the tractor over during a bad maneuver.
Wide Wheels, on the other hand, increase the tractor's traction and make it more stable. Increased traction makes it easier for the tractor to climb hills and tow heavy tools and cargo (provided sufficient horsepower). Increased stability reduces the chance of flipping over, which is important for tractors with Front Loading Arm attachments (which can flip over easily when lifting heavy cargo) or for tractors intended to quickly move equipment from one field to another. Twin Wheels and Triple Wheels help even more, as do wider Crawler Tracks for tractors that can fit them.
It's important to remember that wider wheels, while making the tractor a lot more stable, also make it a lot larger. This can be a problem when maneuvering the tractor in tight spaces, and can prevent it from entering certain places (such as the Barn). It will also destroy a lot more crop when the "Crop Destruction" option is turned on, making such a tractor unsuitable for working on a growing field.
Crawler Tracks do have a strong effect in Farming Simulator 19, as they offer a lot of traction without making the tractor much wider than standard-width wheels. Wide Crawler Tracks (the "3m" upgrade) increase stability for such a tractor without increasing crop destruction, though they do not increase traction.
Finally, Wheel Weights are a good way to increase stability and traction without changing the width of the tractor, though they are not quite as effective as making the wheels wider.
Tire Types[edit | edit source]
For the first time, Farming Simulator 19 also allows exchanging a tractor's tires for a different model altogether. All tractors are fitted by default with field tires for extra traction on fields, useful when pulling heavy equipment or driving uphill. Most tractors can exchange these tires for street tires, which have less traction on fields but much better performance on paved roads. Street tires are much more useful for tractors assigned to towing Implements or Containers from one place to another.
Some Wheel Upgrades (see prev. subsection) are only available for specific models of tires. To see all available Wheel Upgrades for a tractor, you might need to browse through the various tire models as well.
Front Loader Attacher[edit | edit source]
- Main article: Front Loading Arms (Farming Simulator 19)
Most Small tractors and Medium tractors in the base game can be fitted with a Front Loader Attacher. This upgrade is required in order to attach a Front Loading Arm to the tractor. Without this upgrade, the arm will not attach.
Once a Front Loader arm has been attached, you can then attach a Loading Tool at the end of the arm. There are many different tools for different tasks, such as lifting Pallets, shoveling Heaps, lifting Logs, and arranging Bales. Some tools are suitable for multiple different jobs.
Remember that a tractor's weight determines how likely it is to flip over when lifting heavy cargo - especially when making sharp turns when the cargo is lifted high above the tractor. This is why Medium tractors are generally better for Front Loading jobs than small tractors. If your tractor is not heavy enough, consider attaching a Weight at the back, or adding the Wheel Weights upgrade.
Fixed Weights[edit | edit source]
A few tractor models come with a Weight fixed to the front of the tractor, to balance out any heavy Implement attached at the rear. Several other models come with no such weight at the front - but have the ability to install such a weight as an upgrade (instead of purchasing a separate weight).
Note that tractors that have a fixed weight (whether by default or as an upgrade) do not have a front-side 3-Point Hitch, but they all have a front-side Drawbar that can be used even when a weight is installed.
A few tractors models, particularly those manufactured by John Deere, can adjust the mass of the front-side weight by simply reconfiguring the tractor.
