Logitech G Heavy Equipment Bundle, reviewed

This product has been on the market for a couple of years now, and it’s generic name initially caught us out before we realised it was describing an actual product. You can see who it is aimed at, and why it might appeal. In an Irish context though many young farmers learn simply by driving the onsite vehicles that are to hand. Naturally from a health and safely perspective this might be less than ideal. That might be a case of what doesn’t kill them…, however it probably would be less stressful to have them practice on this first.

You do wonder if there is a bad weather setting, and also a driving the tractor on far too steep an incline. However here again it would be less costly and potentially dangerous  to have aspiring farmers practice on gear like this first. It also means they can have clocked up plenty of hours at the wheel, at least. metaphorically, before letting them loose on your, often very expensive, equipment. There are elements of this simulation set up that are quite clunky, and many have felt that the UX is not the greatest, including its potential for use on other games also. It would have had more going for it if it could be used across a wider range of gaming platforms and for different games too.

More details about the product

The Logitech G Heavy Equipment Bundle is an impressive stable of specialized farm simulation gear. All the essential tools are here: 900?wheel, rugged pedals, and a side panel for realistic immersion and enjoyment. In partnership with GIANTS Software and the Farm Sim community (That’s you!), we amplified the thrill of cultivating land, nurturing livestock, and selling goods. And, not only for machinery!

Get your hands dirty with sticks and buttons built into the wheel for in-game farmer tasks, like powering a chainsaw. It’s all here and all for the most rewarding agri-adventure possible. Now updated with engineering enhancements that address feedback from the community, the Heavy Equipment Bundle is ready for the rigors of life on the farm.

Rotates 900 Degrees in Both Directions. The center-sprung wheel is designed with all the essentials of real farm machinery. Enjoy heavy operations with farm-fun tilt, realistic rotation … and a horn. Of course, we didn’t forget the turn knob so your free hand can command a beverage or operate the controls on your side panel.

Hands-On Controls to Command Your Farmer. In-game situations call for sticks and buttons and this wheel is loaded with them. Twin analog sticks, each with a push down button, are ideal for moving characters and controlling a camera. The 4-way hat switches near each stick provide eight more buttons at your fingertips. Two ergonomic, trigger-like buttons reside on the back. And, everything is programmable from within the game.

Dedicated Pedals for Driver Control. Enjoy ideal tractor simulation with dedicated gas and brake pedals. Angular travel is set to 20 degrees to give you utmost control. And, the pedals connect to the wheel via 1.8m cable. That means the whole kit occupies only one USB port on your gaming rig.

Mod-friendly with 25+ Programmable Buttons. Easily engage tree harvesters, cranes, chainsaws, chippers, trailers, and more. The loader stick controls up, down, and twist axes, while a mode switch doubles those commands giving you six axes to operate. Set-and-forget the cruise control speed dial and autopilot feature to focus on other tasks, like farming snacks.
