7 Remarkable FS22 Small Tractor Mods

Farming Simulator 22 (FS22) has many tremendous, small tractors out of the box. That doesn’t mean there isn’t room for more. A small tractor is also a cheap tractor, perfect for starting a new game save when your budget is tight.

They are also great farm tractors when you need a vehicle to complete farmyard chores on larger farms.

Here are the FS22 small tractor mods I think are worthy of a spot in your shed:

1. Case Maxxum Series

This is one of the best small tractor mods for FS22. Period.

Right now, the Case IH Maxxum series is the best small tractor mod you can get for Farming Simulator 22 (FS22.)

The model made its Farm Sim entry in FS19 and made it over to the new game. With this mod, you get a Maxxum that is better than ever, thanks to all the modder’s additions.

  • First, the tractor looks really good.
  • Secondly, the sound effects are outstanding.

I love the humming of the engine while the tractor stands idle. The mod also displays some cool animations inside the cab. The hand throttle, for example, is animated.

You can open the left door, the roof hatch, and the rear window using a mouse or a controller.

What I like the best about this Maxxum mod is how you can change the colors of the interior of the tractor. It’s even possible to add floor carpets to the cab. Nice!

Yes, you can also change the colors of the exterior too…

Overall, the mod is a prime example of what separates excellent modders from others. It can’t get much better than this.

  • Brand: Case IH.
  • Base price: 112,000.
  • Horsepower: 145—175 hp.
  • Modder: Schnibbl Modding.
  • Platforms: All.
  • Errors: No.

2. Fendt Favorit 500

This modded Favorit 500 has more to offer than the original.

Here’s one of the best modifications of the FS22 base game Fendt Favorit 500. It adds a lot more to an already excellent tractor in the small category.

It’s all the animations that excite me the most.

  • The left door and the rear window can be opened.
  • You can even fold the beacon lights with your mouse or a controller.

These animations make me miss a sound effect feature that changes the in-cab audio as soon as you open a door, for example. Right now, the sound is the same. Hopefully, Giants will change that in the future.

I just wonder why this Fendt mod doesn’t have more wheel options. The original model has wheel configs from all the FS22 brands. The mod, however, only uses setups from Mitas, Trelleborg, and Nokian.

  • Brand: Fendt.
  • Base price: 76,000.
  • Horsepower: 110—190 hp.
  • Modder: Green Agrar.
  • Platforms: PC, Mac.
  • Errors: No.

3. John Deere 6300

The John Deere 6300 mod has a lot of shop options.

Are you looking for an awesome John Deere tractor of the smaller kind? Then you absolutely need to check out the FS22 version of the John Deere 6300. It’s one of the best small utility tractor mods I’ve ever used.

If you download this mod, you get two models:

  • One with windows.
  • The other one is without.

The best thing about the mod, however, is all the customization possibilities:

  • There are many wheel setups from all FS22 brands, except Nokian.
  • You can also switch exhaust pipes
  • The cab windows can have different tones.
  • There are also several versions of the rear wheel weights.

Another cool feature is the option to paint the driver’s seat in different colors.

On top of that, the cab has several cool animations of pedals and levers. However, there are no options for opening doors or windows, which is also the only drawback.

  • Brand: John Deere.
  • Base price: 15,500.
  • Horsepower: 100—105 hp.
  • Modder: SleutjesModding.
  • Platforms: All.
  • Errors: No.

4. Fendt Vario 300

More of most compared to the base game version.

If you ever get tired of the base game’s Fendt Vario 300, you’ll have more fun driving this mod. It has more options in the shop, and there’s more going on, both inside and outside the cabin.

The shop options include the following:

  • Beacon lights placements are now a separate customization choice.
  • There are also paint options for the body and the rims.

The left door and the roof hatch are animated and controlled by a mouse or a controller. I’m thrilled to tell you that the hand throttle is animated too.

Oh, and the steering wheel column moves appropriately when entering and leaving the tractor.

  • Brand: Fendt.
  • Base price: 107,500.
  • Horsepower: 113—142 hp.
  • Modder: Schnibbl Modding.
  • Platforms: All.
  • Errors: No.

5. Case IH 1455 XL

A true Farming Simulator legend returns.

Another great FS22 small tractor mod is the iconic Case IH 1455 XL.

It has been part of the Farming Simulator universe since FS17, where it was one of the first tractors players could drive when they started the game.

Thanks to modders, the cool-looking red one has been granted a new chance to impress in the new game.

Sure, it doesn’t come with an abundance of customizable parts, nor can you open its doors or windows.

  • Some wheel options are waiting for you inside the shop.
  • It’s possible to add front loader consoles to it.

No matter the few options, it’s still one of those classic tractors that suit most farms in the game.

My favorite feature is all the front-loader console choices. Yes, both Quicke and Hauer are included; even Stoll is available.

  • Brand: Case IH.
  • Base price: 102,000.
  • Horsepower: 145 hp.
  • Modder: Univers Simu Modding.
  • Platforms: All.
  • Errors: No.

6. New Holland L95 Fiatagri

Can a tractor be charming? I think it can.

If this list were all about looks, the New Holland L95 Fiatagri would have made it to one of the top spots.

I love how charming this FS22 utility tractor mod looks.

When it’s placed down here, it’s because of an unfortunate quirk that affects the driving physics of the tractor. More on that later.

When you’re about to buy the New Holland, these are your choices:

  • You can change the wheels; Trelleborg, Michelin, and Continental setups are available.
  • Weights can be added to the front, but not a 3-point hitch with PTO.
  • Front loader consoles from Quicke and Hauer.
  • There are also several color options to choose from.

It’s a great little tractor. However, you better take it easy while driving it. It has a bad habit of flipping over in turns, even when you’re not going full throttle.

This leads me to believe there’s a minor error regarding the mod’s mass configuration.

  • Brand: New Holland.
  • Base price: 36,400.
  • Horsepower: 95 hp.
  • Modder: SeviModding.
  • Platforms: All.
  • Errors: No.

7. Claas Arion 660-610

The modded Claas offers more customization options.

Here’s a nice minor upgrade of the vanilla game’s Claas Arion 660-610 series.

It doesn’t differ much from Giants Software’s original model. Still, it offers enough to be mentioned on this list.

  • First of all, it adds more colors to the body.
  • Secondly, the mod allows you to open the left door and the rear window.

Yes, I know. There is just one set of Claas colors (green, red, white.) However, I also know that many players love to paint their vehicles and tools in all kinds of colors…

  • Brand: Claas.
  • Base price: 120,000.
  • Horsepower: 145—205 hp.
  • Modder: Dithmarscher.
  • Platforms: All.
  • Errors: No.
