Platinum Preview: Hydraulic Breaking

October 13, 2022

Remember when we introduced field stones to Farming Simulator 22? Turns out, those rocky little rascals on your fields were only the harbingers of an even bigger fiend - lurking in the woods, waiting to be defeated by you and your epic machinery.

With the Platinum Expansion (release on November 15th), you will bump into boulders here and there when exploring the woods of Silverrun Forest, our all-new map.

Don't worry, they're not too common, and we'll give you the tools to stand up to them. You'll probably spot some of them when marking trees with spray cans to instruct your friends.

Rocks & Flags in Silverrun Forest

When bringing more than 40 new machines included in the Platinum Expansion to the forest, those big rocks may block your path. If you want to plant trees in a certain location or want to turn an area into a field for agricultural operations, you have to get rid of them.

The solution: a hydraulic breaker! We're not talking about the oddly satisfying trend of crushing stuff with a hydraulic press, though. No, we're talking about the Paladin SFB 750 from the "StrikeForce family of tools", as the manufacturer of hydraulic tools and attachments describes this powerful instrument. 

So, if your chosen worksite needs to get cleared from rocks, the Paladin tool will do the job - it's satisfying, too. FYI: When taking on specific contracts by your neighbors in Silverrun Forest, the rocks you are assigned to get rid of are marked with a tiny flag, so you can spot them. That is one of multiple new forestry missions we introduce with the expansion.

Let's Crush It!

Take a skid-steer loader like the New Holland L318 or C332 of your choosing (find out more about loading machines) and attach the Paladin SFB 750! You attach the hydraulic crusher like any other attachment tool. That's it - you're now ready to crush it, baby. 

Move to the rock in your path and activate the tool by unfolding it. Aim it at the rock and move the arm of your skid-steer loader into the rock until it vanishes bit by bit. 

They're Pebbles Now

Well - now, we got a pile of pebble-like stones, and we need to move it. Using a shovel, you can load it into a trailer and sell it at the stone crusher, earning you some additional money.

This is the perfect opportunity to make use of the Volvo-BM LM 841 wheel loader in combination with a shovel attachment tool.
