Is there a way to calculate maxForce value, or is it just an approximation?

*sigh* ever looked into the FS17 folder "sdk"?
There's a nice Excel sheet "vehicleMotorCalculator.xls".
If you don't have MS Office, use the free LibreOffice.

Thanks for reply, but there is no such value in "vehicleMotorCalculator.xls".
It calculates parameters for motor block of steerable vehicles, but maxForse is a value of power Consumer block of tools (cultivators, seeders, plows).
Also this sheet ( ) says that it express in kN.

Ah - you mean the PTO (power take-off)?
You can take a rough, approximated value. Exactly calculated is it in the "PowerConsumer.lua". See there for detailed info.
