6 of the Best FS22 Cultivator Mods (Deep and Shallow)

Farming Simulator 22 has both deep and shallow cultivators. If you venture outside the base game’s lineup of available tools, you should only go with the good ones.

I’ve made the hunt easier for you. Here are some of the best FS22 cultivator mods, both deep and shallow:

1. Case IH Tiger-Mate 255 Field Cultivator

Here’s the magnificent Case IH Tiger-Mate 255 field cultivator. It’s the largest cultivator for deep cultivation right now.

Deep cultivation in Farming Simulator 22 means small stones will surface. However, it’s good for weeds control. Your fields will have less of it if you’re using this cultivator.

The size is the main benefit of using the Tiger-Mate 255. It cultivates in a width of 18.2 meters, 60 feet. You’ll be able to work a lot more land in significantly less time with this bad boy.

It comes at a cost, though, also literally.

  • You must cough up almost 105,000 to buy it.
  • And your tractor needs at least 500 horsepower to pull it without too much hassle.

I like that there are several options for the harrows at the end of the cultivator. The various harrows won’t affect the yield, but it’s still great for the visuals.

At the end of the day, it’s one of the most impressive cultivator mods I’ve ever used.

The model’s details are insane.

Yes, I know. Creating highly detailed models isn’t that hard. However, making them work in the game without affecting the performance is a work of art.

The bottom line? Custom Modding is one of the best mod artists for FS22.

  • Brand: Case IH.
  • Price: 104,463.
  • Working width: 18.2m, 60ft.
  • Working speed: 15 kph, 9 mph.
  • Required horsepower: 500 hp.
  • Modder: Custom Modding.
  • Platform: PC, Mac.
  • Errors: No.

2. Horsch Cruiser 12 XL

It’s great to have more Horsch cultivator mods in the game.

I’ve always been a big fan of the Horsch equipment in the Farming Simulator games. Honestly, I felt a bit let down by Giants Software because they only added two Horsch models to Farming Simulator 22, the Terrano 3 FX and the Joker 4 CT.

Thankfully, talented modders keep churning out vehicles and tools from older games as mods. Now, it has finally happened to the massive Cruiser 12 XL.

It’s a shallow cultivator, meaning it will leave a seedbed where the soil is mixed with plant matter. In other words, it’s a stubble cultivator.

The cultivator is massive in more ways than one. It has one of the highest horsepower requirements in the game. You shouldn’t put anything below 500 horsepower in front of it.

It’s also one of the FS22 cultivator mods with most shop options.

  • You can add wheels from different manufacturers to it.
  • It’s possible to add a custom license plate to it.
  • Brand: Horsch.
  • Price: From 89.000.
  • Working width: 12 meters, 39 feet.
  • Working speed: 15 kph, 9 mph.
  • Required horsepower: 500 hp.
  • Modder: Giants Software.
  • Platform: PC, Mac.
  • Errors: No.

3. Bednar Swifter SM 18000

It is one of the largest cultivators, not only in the game but also in the world.

The massive Bednar Swifter SM 18000 has been brought to life in FS22. It was initially part of the FS17 Big Bud DLC. Thanks to Giants Software releasing it as a mod, it has found its way to FS22.

The Bednar field prepper is categorized as a shallow cultivator in the game. It creates a seedbed where crop residue is left visible on the ground.

It has one of the broadest cultivating widths, spanning more than 18 meters. It’ll cover a lot of ground fast, but only if you have a tractor strong enough. The cultivator requires 500 horsepower or more to function without hiccups.

Although the Bednar has no shop options besides license plates, I like it a lot. It’s one of my go-to tools when I want to prep a field fast.

  • Brand: Bednar.
  • Price: 120.500.
  • Working width: 18 meters, 59 feet.
  • Working speed: 15 kph, 9 mph.
  • Required horsepower: 500 hp.
  • Modder: Giants Software.
  • Platform: All.
  • Errors: No.

4. Köckerling Vector 460 and 620

You can also sow grass, canola, and oilseed radish with this cultivator.

This is yet another masterpiece by the German modding powerhouse that is VertexDezign. It’s not one cultivator, but two: The Köckerling Vector 460 and the Köckerling Vector 620.

They are both trailed tools that do deep cultivation. And it doesn’t end there.

You can put an APV spreader on both models. It will sow grass, canola (rapeseed), or oilseed radish while the Köckerlings work the soil.

Here are the customization options:

  • AFV spreader on or off.
  • 460 or 620 model options.
  • Wheel options.

I’m a big fan of the VertexDezign mods. They put so much work into their models.

It’s fantastic how they add so many details to their releases while also respecting the need for mods not to impact the game’s performance negatively.

  • Brand: Köckerling.
  • Price: From 32.000.
  • Working width: 4.6 and 6.2 m, 15 and 20 ft.
  • Working speed: 15 kph, 9 mph.
  • Required horsepower: 220 or 370 hp.
  • Modder: VertexDezign.
  • Platform: All.
  • Errors: No.

5. Kverneland Turbo 8000T

The Kverneland stubble cultivator has an excellent working width of 7.7 meters.

The Kverneland Turbo 8000T is another shallow cultivator suitable for small to medium-sized fields. This model was part of the FS19 Kverneland DLC. Now, it’s a mod for everyone to use in Farming Simulator 22 (FS22.)

It doesn’t have a lot going on inside the shop, though. You can play around with a license plate, and that’s it.

However, the Kverneland cultivator has something most cultivators haven’t: A joint connects the coupling to the drawbar, a configuration that allows you to make impressively tight turns.

On top of that, it’s also a great model with lots of details, like hoses and bolts and fantastic sound effects.

  • Brand: Kverneland.
  • Price: From 79.500.
  • Working width: 7.7 meters, 25 feet.
  • Working speed: 15 kph, 9 mph.
  • Required horsepower: 300 hp.
  • Modder: Giants Software.
  • Platform: All.
  • Errors: No.

6. Kverneland Enduro Pro 5000F

A screenshot of an unfolded Kverneland Enduro Pro 5000F mounted on a Massey Ferguson tractor.
It’s somewhat easier to handle because it’s mounted directly onto the tractor.

Another little gem from the massive Kverneland and Vicon DLC is the Kverneland Enduro Pro 5000F. It’s a deep cultivator meaning it won’t leave crop material in the fields.

I like that it’s mounted directly on the tractor’s 3-point linkage. It’s slightly easier to control than those trailed cultivators.

Just consider putting weights to the front of the tractor. The equipment is heavy enough to make the tractor do a wheelie if nothing counters the rear weight.

And shop options? None, unfortunately. However, I can live with that, especially since the model looks so good.

  • Brand: Kverneland.
  • Price: 37.000.
  • Working width: 5 meters, 16 feet.
  • Working speed: 15 kph, 9 mph.
  • Required horsepower: 240 hp.
  • Modder: Giants Software.
  • Platform: All.
  • Errors: No.

Deep Cultivators vs. Shallow Cultivators

Farming Simulator 22 introduces two types of cultivators: deep and shallow.

So, what’s the difference?

Regarding the yield bonus, there are no differences. However, using one of the two types will impact the soil differently.

Stones: Shallow cultivators won’t dig up stones. Deep cultivators bring small stones to the surface. You can use a roller to press the stones back into the ground.

Weeds: Weeds will grow faster on fields prepared with shallow cultivators compared to fields prepped with deep cultivators.

Textures: Deep cultivation buries the residue into the ground. Shallow cultivation creates a visible mix of soil and plant leftovers.

TL;DR

  • Shallow cultivators: More weeds, plant residues, no stones.
  • Deep cultivators: Fewer weeds, small stones, no plant material.
