5. RadioTower by Carl-TG
Next up on this list is the cool RadioTower mod for Farming Simulator 22 by Carl-TG. It allows you to place a lucrative radio tower generator on your land and receive monthly payments for hosting it.
The income you can get from the RadioTower mod is 67,872 per month. This is quite generous compared to other money-making generators in the game.
It’s also straightforward to use. You need to find a suitable spot on your map, preferably with a good view of the surroundings, and place the radio tower there.
You don’t need any power supply or other connections to use it. The tower will automatically generate income once placed on the ground.
Note that the tower is secured with cables anchored to the ground. This safety mechanism is realistic but will also eat up some of the tower’s surrounding area.

6. Gas Station with Daily Income by Przemek23433
With the Gas Station with Daily Income FS22 mod, by Przemek23433, you can earn passive income from selling gas bottles. Does someone need gas to fire up their barbeque? No problem. You got the goods.
The mod adds two secure cages filled with gas bottles to the game:
- One small cage that earns you 20 per hour.
- If you choose the larger cage, you earn 25 per hour.
Because both cages are relatively small, you can place them almost anywhere on your farmlands.
Not only will these gas bottle cages earn you money. They are also quite decorative. The 3D models look good. And all the textures are pretty realistic.
I also love the details that Przemek23433 has added. Both cages do, of course, have padlocks that prevent the profitable content inside from falling into the wrong hands.

More About Generators
The amount of money you can make with generators in FS22 depends on a couple of factors:
- The type of generators you have and how many of each you own.
- The economic difficulty level of the game does also play a role.
You can check how much money you make with your generators by looking at your income statement in the menu. You will see a “property income” line showing the total income from all your generators.
Generators are an excellent way to make passive income in Farming Simulator 22. However, they also have some drawbacks:
- They take up space on your land.
- They require initial investment and maintenance costs.
- There’s also a slight possibility that some of them aren’t compatible with some mods or maps.
Therefore, you should consider carefully before buying generators and plan where to place them on your farm.
