20+ Impressive FS22 Medium Tractor Mods

The medium tractor category for Farming Simulator 22 (FS22) offers a lot. There are quite a few gems available for free.

Medium tractors are not the most powerful option, but they are more affordable than most large tractors.

Here are my picks for the best FS22 medium tractor mods:

1. John Deere 4755-4955

It’s time to put another two iconic tractors in your FS22 shed. Here are the John Deere 4755 and 4955 models. Both are part of the famous 55 series tractors that rolled out of the Waterloo factory in Iowa, USA.

BTW, did you know that the John Deere 4955 was the company’s first 200-horsepower row-crop tractor? If not, now you know.

The FS22 version of the two models comes in EU and North American styles. You’ll notice this by what kind of wheels you can put on each version.

There are also 2WD and 4WD versions of both models available.

Inside the shop, you’ll find a nice variety of add-ons and extras:

  • Different wheel setups from several manufacturers.
  • You can buy beacon lights for your tractor.
  • Two different rear attachers, weight or a 3-point PTO for the front.
  • Yes, you can also add a front loader console to the tractor.

This is a brilliant rework of an already great tractor. It adds much more to the base game’s 4755 by Giants Software.

  • Base price: 93,500.
  • Horsepower: 190–228.
  • Top speed: 35 kph, 22 mph.
  • Modder: AAA modding.
  • Platforms: All.

2. International 86 Series

You know the letters IH in Case IH, right? They are short for International Harvester, one of North America’s most popular tractor brands in the 1970s and 1980s.

The I and H letters were put together with Case after a company merger in 1985.

However, lots of IH tractors are still used on farms all over the world. And in Farming Simulator 22, like this fantastic mod; the International Harvester 86 series.

The mod adds five models to the game:

  • 886.
  • 986.
  • 1086.
  • 1486.
  • 1586.

It’s an awesome mod. The modeling is impeccable; the textures look perfect. Not even the engine audio and other sound effects manage to disappoint.

If you’re going to put up the money for the IH 86 series, you’ll need to consider the following extras:

  • Different wheel setups (2WD, 4WD, row-crop, plowing setup.)
  • What the interior should look like.
  • The type of exhaust pipe you want.
  • There are also options for front weights.
  • Instead of weights, you can install a front loader attacher.

The mod has animated parts also. You can open and close both doors with your mouse or a controller.

  • Base price: 54,700.
  • Horsepower: 98–179.
  • Top speed: 35 kph, 22 mph. 
  • Modder: Julian F. Modding.
  • Platforms: All.

3. Fendt 700 and 800 Vario TMS

In the last month, I’ve spent several hours inside the Fendt 700 and 800 Vario TMS tractors. I’m not going to beat around the bush: This mod adds some of the best medium tractor models to Farming Simulator 22.

The 3D model is brilliant, the driving physics are astounding, and the new sound effects are magnificent.

The modded Fendts also have some of the most extended shop options for tractors in the Medium class:

  • There are no less than 13 engine models to pick from.
  • The tractors’ front side options include a 3-point PTO and weights.
  • You can change the looks of the exhaust pipe and the hood.
  • It’s possible to tweak the beacon light positions.
  • Front loader attachers are also available.

There are several unique animations too. You can control the left door, the rear window, and the roof hatch with a mouse or a controller.

The mod is fantastic in all ways imaginable. You’ll feel like a king or a queen entering this fabulous piece of FS22 machinery.

  • Base price: 107,000.
  • Horsepower: 115–212.
  • Top speed: 55 kph, 34 mph.
  • Modder: MoosAgrar, LexikDesign.
  • Platforms: All.

4. Case IH Magnum 8900 Series

If you’re looking for a great, classic row-crop tractor for FS22, you’ll probably have a hard time finding better mods than the Case IH Magnum 8900 Series.

One of the many cool features is that all the models come in 2WD and 4WD versions. They also offer many configuration options inside the shop:

  • A lot of wheel setups, including wheels from Firestone (dubbed Lizard because of licensing issues.)
  • Exterior mirrors are optional; that’s also the case for the rear quick 3-point hitch.
  • The 2WD versions of the Magnums can have different front axle track widths.
  • You can put a rock box, a 3-point PTO, or weights on the front.
  • There are also shop options for the exhaust pipe and the rims.
  • Beacon lights and in-cab monitors are also available.

All in all, this pack of older Case IH row-crop Magnums is one of the best medium tractor mods for FS22 right now. I particularly enjoy how great the driving physics is.

Sidenote: The term row-crop comes from the fact that the tractors are constructed to cultivate crops that grow in rows, like corn and sugar beets. The row-crop design prevents plant destruction by placing the wheels between the rows.

  • Base price: 58,900.
  • Horsepower: 170–261.
  • Top speed: 40 kph, 25 mph.
  • Modder: Casearias Modding.
  • Platforms: All.

5. John Deere 7030 Series

The John Deere 7030 Series is one of the best medium-sized John Deere tractor mods for FS22, released in 2022. Unfortunately, it’s only for the PC version of the game. Hopefully, a console version will be available in the future.

It’s the sound effects that impress me the most. The tractor has its own set of custom engine and cabin sounds. They are just as good as the ones Giants’ audio magicians create.

The 3D model is magnificent, while the driving physics are among the best I’ve ever experienced in the game.

When you are going to buy a model, there are many options to consider:

  • Almost 10 engine models with both PowerQuad and AutoQuad.
  • Most FS22 wheel brands are represented with lots of configurations each.
  • Different types of interiors are based on whether you choose electric or mechanical SCVs.
  • Both European and US/Canadian warning signs are available.
  • Lots of options for adding beacon lights and extra work lights.
  • You can buy a StarFire 3000 receiver and a monitor for it.
  • There are also options for a steering knob, different mirrors, and front fenders.
  • You can buy different weights or a linkage with PTO for the front.

Phew! That’s many options!

On top of all, the tractor has many cool animations in the game. You can, for instance, swivel the driver’s seat slightly to the right.

This is an option you get with the real-world versions too. Sure, thanks to the free camera movement in FS22, this doesn’t really impact gameplay. However, it changes the position of your character, which looks cool.

Yes, the tractor works with the Simple IC and Universal Passenger mods.

John Deere 7030 Series Quick Facts

  • Base price: 115,000.
  • Horsepower: 220–250.
  • Top speed: 54 kph, 34 mph.
  • Modder: Dince Modding, MO6R Modding.
  • Platforms: PC and Mac.

6. Fendt 500 Vario S4

The Fendt 500 Vario S4 is one of the best Fendt mods in FS22. First of all, it looks like a million bucks. The engine sounds and other sound effects are amazing.

Then, you have all the options for add-ons and customization inside the shop:

  • Four engine models to choose from: the 512, 513, 514, and 516.
  • On top of that, each model has a Power-, PowerPlus-, and a ProfiPlus-version.
  • There are a lot of wheel and color options available too.
  • Other shop options include stuff like front loader consoles, beacon lights, and hood protection.

The mod has taken many parts of the base game’s 700 Vario tractors. However, there are also plenty of custom details that make this Fendt a true S4 edition.

  • Base price: 159,000.
  • Horsepower: 124–163.
  • Top speed: 52 kph, 33 mph.
  • Modder: MoosAgrar.
  • Platforms: All.

7. Fendt Favorit 800 and 900 Package

This is the Fendt Favorit 800 and 900 package. It’s one of the best medium tractor mods for FS22, released in 2022. It has many unique features that make it stick out quite a lot from other vehicles in the same category.

The most important feature is the sound effects. They are the only Fendt Favorit tractors I know of that have authentic engine sounds created by the modder.

It also has more options for customization inside the shop than most. First of all, the mod includes two models with different looks:

  1. The Fendt 800 Favorit Turboshift.
  2. The Fendt 900 Favorit Vario.

Both models share the same options for add-ons and configurations:

  • You can buy different wheel setups from all FS22 manufacturers.
  • There are several engine models to choose from for both tractors.
  • It’s possible to add chromed parts to the grille and the exhaust pipe.
  • Beacon lights can be placed in different positions.
  • Three types of mirrors are available.
  • You can buy European warning signs for both sides of the cabin.
  • Finally, you can put a PTO on the front of the tractors.

The work that has been done on these Fendts is impressive. The 3D models are brilliant, the textures are detailed, and each model’s driving physics is flawless.

However, the sound made the most significant impact when I tested the tractors. The sound effects are on par with what Giants’ audio engineers can create, which is no small feat.

Fendt Favorit 800 and 900 Package Quick Facts

  • Base price: 76,000 and 81,500.
  • Horsepower: 165–265 and 165–285.
  • Top speed: 50 kph, 31 mph.
  • Modder: Bayern-Agrar.
  • Platforms: All.

8. Massey Ferguson 6S

I love it when modders fill the gap left by Giants Software in Farming Simulator 22. It’s great that we got the new 8S model with FS22.

However, the base game tractor lineup did not include other new models, like the 5S, the 6S, and the 7S. Thanks to modders, at least the new 6S tractor is ready to work in the game.

The Massey Ferguson S6 mod is a tremendous medium-classed tractor. The horsepower range starts at 135 and ends at 180 horsepower.

Inside the shop, there are several options to consider:

  • Weights or 3-point PTO on the tractor’s front.
  • Different types of GPS add-ons for the roof.
  • Wheel brands and wheel setups.
  • Engine models and colors.
  • Rear track width.

The model itself looks fantastic, as many parts of the tractor are based on Giants Software’s S8 model. The sound effects are magnificent too.

However, if you’re a fan of animations, you might feel a bit let down by this mod. Yes, many of the in-cab parts are animated. Stuff like doors and windows, however, are not.

  • Base price: 125,000.
  • Horsepower: 135–180.
  • Top speed: 55 kph, 34 mph.
  • Modder: KRKZ-modding.
  • Platforms: All.

9. John Deere 6R Medium Frame Series

A screenshot of the John Deere 6R medium frame series tractor mod.
This is one of the best tractors mods in all of FS22.

The John Deere 6R medium frame series mod for Farming Simulator 22 is one of the best I’ve ever used (I’ve been around since FS2013…)

Almost everything about this mod is pure brilliance. It’s a prime example of what’s possible when extremely talented modders go to work.

I mean, the list of shop options alone is almost a book:

  • Different front options: Suitcase weights, a block weight, or a 3-point hitch with PTO.
  • An insane amount of wheel options from all the brands available in the game.
  • Seat covers in fabric or leather.
  • Multiple options for the front and rear fenders.
  • You can also decide which monitor you want to put inside the cab.
  • 8 different choices for the left door. A panoramic version is just one of them.
  • Other options include different mirrors, additional lights, and fuel tanks in different sizes.

And that’s not all. There are options for the cabin roof too:

You can buy a panorama roof. Other options add different versions of the StarFire 6000 GPS receiver. Some of the configurations also add an extra monitor inside the cab.

Now that we’re inside the cab: There are so many cool animations of the levers and monitors.

Still, the most remarkable feature, in my opinion, is that you can move the driver’s seat forward and back. You can also swivel it to the right. A mouse or controller controls both animations.

Have I forgotten something? Oh, yes!

The mod comes in several EU and US (Canadian) versions. They put different warning signs and flashers on the tractor. Unfortunately, you can’t fold or unfold the blinkers, but that’s the only drawback of this impressive mod.

If you’re an aspiring modder wondering what the best FS22 modders are doing, just take a look at this JD 6R. It doesn’t get any better than this.

  • Brand: John Deere.
  • Base price: 105,000.
  • Horsepower: 185–205 hp.
  • Modder: Dince Modding.
  • Platforms: PC, Mac.
  • Errors: No.

10. John Deere 6175–6215R

A screenshot of the John Deere 6215R.
All the shop options will keep you busy for quite a while.

It looks like the best Farming Simulator modders enjoy working on John Deere tractors the most. The John Deere 6175–6215R is another top pick in the best of FS22 medium tractor mods category.

Like the 6R above, there’s a lot you can customize when you decide to buy it. It comes with a crazy amount of buying options:

  • Tons of wheel setups, all FS22 brands are included.
  • This mod also has different versions of the cabin roof, with or without a GPS receiver.
  • There are two versions of the joystick and the right-side control console (AutoPwr and CommandPro.)
  • Yes, there are beacon light options too.
  • The left door can either be standard or panoramic.
  • Leather or fabric seat covers.
  • You can even add a carpet to the floor of the cabin.
  • It works with the base game’s front loaders.

Everything about the mod’s audio is a delight to listen to. I also appreciate how the modder has taken time to animate hand throttles and several other objects inside the cab.

The only things that aren’t animated are the doors and windows. However, I can live without this because everything else is excellent.

  • Brand: John Deere.
  • Base price: 115,000.
  • Horsepower: 175–215.
  • Modder: Kevin8228.
  • Platforms: PC, Mac.
  • Errors: No.

11. Case IH 7200 Series

A screenshot of the Case IH 7130 and the Steyr 9250 tractors.
This mod can both be a Case and a Steyr.

The Case IH 7200 Pro series entered the Farming Simulator franchise as a base game vehicle in FS19. Now, it’s converted and ready for Farming Simulator 22 (FS22.) And it’s better than ever.

I was honestly surprised how good it was the first time I entered it in the new game. I knew the model looked good, but with the FS22 sound updates, it felt like a brand-new machine. It finally felt complete.

The buying options are extensive. You have more choices with the modded FS22 version than the original FS19 version.

  • You can put weights to the tractor’s front.
  • An Impressive amount of wheel options from all available brands.
  • There are even several different front hood types with different light configs.
  • The front fenders are customizable.
  • There are also some color options for the rims.

It’s the engine options I like the most. There are many to choose from. Some add the Pro logo or the Steyr logo to the tractor.

The last point about Steyr stems from the fact that Case IH and Steyr worked together on branding the same model differently in different markets.

I think the FS22 Case IH 7200 series mod looks astonishing. And all the sounds that the engine makes are just brilliant.

On top of that, it’s also magnificent to drive, making it one of the best FS22 medium tractors.

  • Brand: Case IH.
  • Base price: 88,000.
  • Horsepower: 155–261 hp.
  • Modder: Matt26.
  • Platforms: All.
  • Errors: No.

12. Deutz-Fahr 7 Series Pack

A screenshot of the two tractors in the Deutz-Fahr 7 series pack.
Both the FS17 version and the FS19 version are now in FS22.

With this mod, you get great conversions of both the FS17 and FS19 versions of the Deutz-Fahr 7 series tractors.

Not only are they great-looking and awesome-sounding conversions. Both models have gotten several new extra in-shop options:

  • Several wheel setups from all FS22 manufacturers.
  • You can add different types of lights and horns to the tractors.
  • There are color options for the seat, the interior, and the tractor’s bodies.
  • Both models can be equipped with front loaders.

I’m particularly happy about the FS19 model. It has one of the most impressive light setups I’ve ever seen on a Farming Simulator tractor.

My favorite feature is that you can select the Warrior edition of the FS19 model without the need for extra customization.

Yes, it’s also possible to make a Warrior out of the older model. However, it requires a bit more work.

It’s also interesting to see the significant design differences between the two models.

  • Brand: Deutz-Fahr.
  • Base price: 185,000.
  • Horsepower: 224–247 hp.
  • Modder: Maddog Design.
  • Platforms: PC, Mac.
  • Errors: No.

13. Fiatagri 180–90

A screenshot of the Fiatagri 180–90.
An iconic tractor with excellent sound effects.

It’s great to see more classic tractors entering Farming Simulator 22 as mods. The beautiful Fiatagri 180–90 is one of the best, older tractors you can get right now.

The tractor is one of several iconic Fiat models produced in Italy. Many 180-90s are still in use on real-life farms, especially in Europe, to this day.

Here are the options you can choose from when you want to buy it in the game:

  • Different front and fender options.
  • Weights or 3-point hitch to the front.
  • Wheels setups from all FS22 brands.
  • A forestry edition adds a protection cage to the tractor.
  • Beacon lights are optional.
  • Stoll or Quicke front loader consoles.
  • Different exhaust pipe and air filter configurations.

The left door opens and closes automatically when you enter or leave the tractor in-game. There’s a realistic thump sound playing each time the door is shut.

Oh, and while we’re on the subject of the audio, the engine’s sounds are delightfully brutal.

  • Brand: Fiat.
  • Base price: 33,500.
  • Horsepower: 180 hp.
  • Modder: Peppe978.
  • Platforms: All.
  • Errors: No.

14. Deutz-Fahr 7 Series TTV and 8 Series TTV

A screenshot of the Deutz-Fahr 7 Series TTV and the 8 Series TTV.
These models have more options than the original version.

Here you have an excellent modification of the base game Deutz-Fahr tractors. Both the 7 Series TTV and the 8 Series TTV have been modded. They’ve been given more options.

There are some differences regarding how many buying options each tractor has:

  • The 7 series version has the most choices.
  • Both tractors can have many wheel setups from all brands available in the game.
  • A cool feature is the many color choices for the interior of both models.
  • LED or halogen lights.
  • Front loader console (7 series only.)

The tractors are perfect. I’m particularly happy about the audio. Since it’s possible to open the left door, it’s great that the door makes a slamming sound each time you close it.

  • Brand: Deutz-Fahr.
  • Base price: 221,500.
  • Horsepower: 230–280 hp.
  • Modder: RedCat3D.
  • Platforms: All.
  • Errors: No.

15. Fendt 700 Vario Gen6

A screenshot of the Fendt 700 Vario Gen6 mod.
This mod gives you more to work within the shop.

The Fendt 700 Vario Gen6 medium tractor mod upgrades the existing Farming Simulator 22 model.

It’s also one of the better extensions I’ve discovered so far. It adds several new options to an already great model.

Here’s what you can customize:

  • The wheels, with options from all brands featured in the game.
  • There are two different fender designs to choose from.
  • Quicke or Hauer front loader console.

My favorite addition is all the new colors. The Fendt’s body can have one of 7 official Fendt colors, like orange, red, or petrol blue. Yes, the classic Fendt green is also possible.

Note that you cannot paint the rims, though. They’ll stay red.

I also think it’s worth mentioning that you can use a mouse or a controller to open the roof hatch, the left door, and the rear window.

  • Brand: Fendt.
  • Base price: 162,000.
  • Horsepower: 144–246 hp.
  • Modder: MoosAgrar.
  • Platforms: All.
  • Errors: No.

16. Massey Ferguson Next Edition (7200S and 7220S)

A screenshot of the Massey Ferguson Next Edition tractors.
Notice the “NEXT” logo on the hood of the tractor.

These two mods, the Massey Ferguson 7200S, and 7220S Next Editions, are good modifications of the base game’s 7720 S.

The mods are based on Massey Ferguson’s real-world update to some of its S models. The Next term signals “NEXT level of performance and straightforward dependability” (quote from the manufacturer.)

A result of this, in the game, is that you can paint the tractors in different colors. The NEXT logo is also visible on both models.

Besides the paint options, here are what you can customize in the shop:

  • Wheels, with setups from all brands available in the game.
  • Front-loaders from Quicke and Hauer.

I like this modification. It would be even better if the doors and windows were animated, though.

  • Brand: Massey Ferguson.
  • Base price: 145,000.
  • Horsepower: 155–280 hp.
  • Modder: Ls_Agrar_Ole.
  • Platforms: All.
  • Errors: No.

17. John Deere 6M

A screenshot of the John Deere 6M.
Here’s the FS19 version of the JD 6M in FS22.

Here’s a basic conversion of the John Deere 6M many players used in Farming Simulator 19.

It’s not much that differs between the two versions. The exception is that you can add license plates to the FS22 version. It also has more wheel options.

  • You can still add several suitcase weights to the front.
  • The mod has plenty of wheel configurations from all brands.
  • A John Deere front loader console is optional.

When I say basic conversion, I mean that no effort has gone into adding more functions to the mod. None of the doors or windows are animated, for example.

Still, it’s a mod worth mentioning. One of its benefits is how cheap it is to buy compared to many other tractors in the Medium category.

  • Brand: John Deere.
  • Base price: 119,500.
  • Horsepower: 142–164 hp.
  • Modder: Didek96.
  • Platforms: All.
  • Errors: No.

18. Schlüter 2500 VL

A screenshot of the Schlüter 2500 VL.
Some say it looks weird. I say it looks fantastic.

The Schlüter 2500 VL is easily one of the strangest looking medium tractor mods in the history of Farming Simulator games. It’s also one of the coolest.

Not only does it look cool. It has some excellent shop options too:

  • Some wheel options from Michelin and Trelleborg.
  • You can choose between automatic or manual transmission.
  • A lot of color choices for the body, the interior, and the rims.

The Schlüter tractor has steering on all wheels, making it relatively easy to maneuver.

I think it’s one of the coolest-looking mid-sized tractor mods FS22 has to offer. I also hope that the modder updates it to give life (i.e., lights) to the buttons on the dashboard.

  • Brand: Schlüter.
  • Base price: 124,000.
  • Horsepower: 240 hp.
  • Modder: MTL Modding Team.
  • Platforms: All.
  • Errors: No.

19. Steyr CVT Pack

A screenshot of the Steyr CVT tractors.
I like the color options of this pack of Steyr tractors.

The Steyr CVT SWB and the Steyr CVT LWB are basically the same tractor. The differences are the engine options (the LWB is stronger), the hood sizes, and that the LWB has front linkage options.

Now, let’s look at what you can do to the tractors inside the shop:

  • Both models have Trelleborg, BKT, and Vredestein wheel options.
  • Design options that add different mirrors, beacon lights, and rear fenders to both models.
  • Both tractors can be used with front loaders.
  • Color pickers for the body and the rims.

It’s great to have more Steyr models to choose from in FS22. I think the more modern models have some of the best-looking hoods of all tractors.

  • Brand: Steyr.
  • Base price: 148,800.
  • Horsepower: 150–260 hp.
  • Modder: Schnibbl Modding.
  • Platforms: All.
  • Errors: No.

20. Case IH Puma 140–185

A screenshot of the Case IH Puma 240 model.
FS22 wouldn’t be complete without a Puma.

No Farming Simulator game is complete without the Puma. Thanks to modders, it’s now possible to have the gorgeous Case IH Puma help you on your Farming Simulator 22 farm.

When you are going to buy it, here are the choices you can make:

  • Several different wheel configurations. All FS22 wheel brands are available.
  • You can add a front loader console to the Puma.

That’s it. Some of the modded FS19 versions had a lot more options. For now, this basic conversion will have to do.

The audio is on the plus side. The Puma comes with great sound effects from the engine and inside the cab.

I miss more animations (you can’t open doors or windows) and options for license plates, though.

  • Brand: Case IH.
  • Base price: 188,000.
  • Horsepower: 225–270 hp.
  • Modder: Baki.
  • Platforms: All.
  • Errors: No.

21. Case Optum CVX

A screenshot of the Case Optum CVX.
It’s one of the most underrated tractors in the Farming Simulator games.

Ah, the beautiful Case IH Optum CVX. It was one of my favorite tractors in FS19. Back then, I thought it was one of the most underrated tractors of the game. Maybe this mod will change that in FS22?

It might happen if this version gets some updates with more stuff added to it.

Right now, it’s a direct conversion of the tractor that you might drove in the previous game.

It’s not bad; it’s just that there came some modded versions that had a lot more options. Hopefully, that will happen in FS22 too,

Ok, now let’s look at the customization possibilities:

  • You can add wheels from all the brands available in the game.
  • There are also several engine options to pick from.

Note: You can’t attach front loaders to this version.

There are no animated doors or windows, but the FS22 version is still better, thanks to the astonishing sound effects.

  • Brand: Case IH.
  • Base price: 240,000.
  • Horsepower: 288–313 hp.
  • Modder: Didek96.
  • Platforms: All.
  • Errors: No.

22. Claas Axion 800 Series

A screenshot of the Claas Axion 800 series mod.
If you like painting tractors, you’ll love this version of the Axion.

A modder has extended the features of the Claas Axion 800 Series tractor. Not by much, but enough to make it on this list.

The buying options are pretty much the same as you get with the base game model. However, the modded version lets you paint most of the tractor in various colors.

My favorite addition, though, is the new animation. You can now open the left door using a mouse or a controller.

  • Brand: Claas.
  • Base price: 185,000.
  • Horsepower: 205–295 hp.
  • Modder: NikmoriLS.
  • Platforms: All.
  • Errors: No.
