Introduction to Levelers

Levelers are a type of instrument in a farming simulator. Levelers are employed to re-form piles of substance left on the ground or soil. First and foremost, levelers are used to tear down piles of silage of chaff inside farmer’s silage bunkers, so that vehicles can drive into the bunkers to unload more materials without any interference.

The leveler itself is a flat piece of metal that can effectively push materials all over like a bulldozer. A Leveler cannot scoop materials up to dump them elsewhere unlike a bucket; it can only push them away. Levelers are very wide when positioned since they need to be able to push a lot of materials at the same time. The two leveler models in the game can be folded when they are not working to take up less space.

The base game provides two distinctive models of levelers, and they can both be discovered in the "Levelers" category at the store. Both models function the same way, with the principal difference being their size and the maximum quantity of materials they can push with each forward movement. One of these levelers also has a modification that enables it to be positioned on a wheel-loader - a type of vehicle specially designed to work with silage.

And in the machining area, levelers can also be found for a variety of purposes. In the mechanical field, a leveler removes myriad flatness defects from the material. Flatness deficiencies do not manifest until the burning, cutting, or processing of the material. These deficiencies are owing to internal residual stress misalignment inherent in fabricating. There are three different types of levelers machines: Corrective levelers, Tension levelers, and Plate levelers. Each type of leveler stated above can accomplish different leveling tasks. Levelers are chiefly utilized to remove flatness deficiencies from several different materials. 

Levelers remove flatness deficiencies from several different materials. Depending on the application requirements and the material, there are many elements to mull over when choosing a leveler. These elements can include the following: Minimum and maximum material width, the maximum and minimum yield strength of the material, speed or production rate required, temperature of incoming material, both minimum and maximum gauge of the material to be processed, and material handling of plate beforehand during and after processing.

Levelers Uses 

Levelers have two principal functions: To reshape and push piles and to tear down piles in your silage bunkers. They are specially designed for this job, and cannot really execute any other job. In spite of which type of work it is doing, the leveler will collect any loose materials that touch its lower edge. Nevertheless, instead of scooping them and holding them (like a bucket would), levelers will instantly drop any material it is shifting as soon as it finds room beneath the leveler. Lifting the leveler off the ground will therefore always result in the spilling out of material within the device.

The capacity of the leveler also has a strong impact. As the leveler moves forward into a pile of material, the amount of material being "conveyed" by the leveler grows. If the leveler is driven back or lifted, it will instantly let go of the material as mentioned in the previous paragraph. But if the amount of material in the leveler hits its maximum capacity, the leveler will stop collecting any extra material as it moves over a pile. Alternatively, it will continue pushing whatever material it already contains until it reaches a point where that material spills out, in which case the material will drop out of the leveler automatically.


As vehicles dump more and more chaff into a silage bunker, they usually create uneven or precipitous piles of it at different points within the bunker. While there are ways to avert this, it is usually inescapable. After several vehicles have dumped their cargo in the bunker, the piles can be so bluff that vehicles cannot enter the bunker at all anymore; or worse, they might get stuck on one of the piles.

The existence of precipitous piles in your bunker can also make it much more challenging to squash the material later. A necessary step during the silaging-process is driving heavy vehicles over it. The leveler must be elevated some distance off the ground, typically just high enough to touch the peak of the pile, to level a pile of material. Then, drive the leveler onwards just far enough into the pile to push the peak over to the opposite slope.

Once the peak of the pile has been razed, lower the leveler just a bit more, and repeat this process again and again. After repeating this enough times, you should end up with a relatively flat pile. You should be able to flatten very large piles utterly with some skills.
